Eternal Hope is a great little puzzle platformer. What it lacks in originality, it makes up for in heart, offering a relatable story of love, loss and redemption. Perfect if you're looking for a short, heartfelt adventure to keep you distracted for a few hours.

‎That is what Eternal Hope consists of, a work that constantly reminds us that life continues and that at some point we will have to push ourselves into the bottom of the situation where we find ourselves, to regain control of the situation and our life, strengthened by the difficulty of things.‎

Gorgeous visuals don't quite make up for innacurate and clunky platforming.

Eternal Hope is reasonably well designed in terms of gameplay, even if the controls feel sloppy and some puzzles do not always make much sense. It is difficult to make puzzle games last very long, but this one definitely has enough length for its low price point. A stronger story or tighter gameplay would have made this game into a great one, and the team behind this adventure certainly has the potential to do it, but as it is, Eternal Hope just lacks focus.

Eternal Hope is a dark and bleak, 2D puzzle platformer that takes you on an emotional rollercoaster that will stick with you for a long time. It is incredibly short, but looks and sounds great during its brief stay.

Eternal Hope had potential, and it has great presentation qualities. However, the lack of meaningful plot direction and unresponsive controls make the adventure more of a slog than it should be.

Eternal Hope is well done, with small details that make a difference in a very positive way. It has a cliché plot, but it's fun to play. The visuals are beautiful, but being an extremely short and simple game, it leaves the feeling that levels and powers could have been better explored, and characters and the story in general better developed.

Eternal Hope is a fascinating game that favours style over substance. Whilst the narrative is lofty and ambitious, the short playtime and repetitive puzzles dock it marks for me. However, that’s not to say that I didn’t enjoy my time with Ti’Bi. The heartwarming story and the bold design are more than enough to make me swoon. If you love puzzle platformers and striking aesthetics, this wonderful indie title will stay in your mind for days.

If you go into Eternal Hope with measured expectations, you won’t be disappointed. It’s a story, first and foremost. Sure, the puzzles are interesting at times, but the gameplay largely feels like an afterthought. As it stands, Eternal Hope is probably best left to casual gamers who enjoy an atmospheric experience. Inveterate platformer fans aren’t going to find much here except frustration.

Eternal Hope is a beautiful, great-sounding disappointment. Even at its low price, it’s hard to recommend. With a playtime of no more than two hours and seemingly no replay value there are far better options out there for your time and money, but not many that look so danged pretty.

Eternal Hope is a game with many qualities, but whose flaws leave it far short of its inspirations. While the narrative is very engaging and the visual direction is vibrant, the mechanical simplicity doesn't translate into completely satisfying gameplay due to notable problems and very unchallenging puzzles. It's a title that will give fans of platform and puzzle games a few moments of pleasure, but whose inspirations from the highly acclaimed Limbo leave us with the feeling of enormous unrealized potential.
