Let's go retro!
Following in the footsteps of classic adventures like Metroid and Castlevania comes this cracking little retro-themed platformer. It's got all the charming visuals and clever and inventive gameplay you could ask for, so if you just want something cheap and cheerful to keep you occupied, this is a great bet. It's a bit like Portal but in 2D and finds you exploring a huge laboratory that is just filled with mysterious puzzles to solve. As you venture forth, you'll need to make use of gateway guns to leap from place to place, while you can also change size to enter small passages or deal with oversized enemies. Other elements you'll need to master in order to succeed include walking on walls and ceilings and even travelling in time. You've got several useful skills to unlock, while the whole world is open for exploration and if you get stuck, there's a very clever little help system that will even show you the solution to a puzzle. Gateways really is a wonderful experience. It grabs your attention from the start with its charming visual design, which packs a lot of personality, while the game's clear sense of humor and determination to be little more than hugely enjoyable is also highly welcome. The world is well designed and genuinely interesting to explore, while the puzzles are clever, challenging and very satisfying to solve. There is some combat to engage in, but not too much so this is one for people who like to use their brains first, so if this is you, then do yourself a favor and check this out.
