A quick video review of this quality Metroidvania, available on Steam, Switch, and XBox One.
If you aren’t familiar with Timeppinner, it’s a cute-if-short Metroidvania. I played it on Steam, as it was provided by the publisher for review.
Overall, I found the gameplay to be tight and high-quality. The storyline was okay, but it definitely didn’t go very deep. Dialogue between characters was at times awkward. I assume this is due to localization and translation (they should have asked me. Just sayin’.) But overall, it’s a minor gripe.
The graphics in Timespinner are fantastic. It’s a real testament to modern/retro indie style and I loved exploring the maps and discovering the world.
While the game is a bit short on content, the price justifies it. Overall, I think this is a good choice if you want a semi-casual platformer to enjoy for a few hours. If you want something deeper, maybe not. But for what it is, I will heartily approve Timespinner.
