A simple but quietly captivating 3D collectathon with a gorgeous setting.

Tasomachi: Behind the Twilight is a fairly rote 3D platformer with some great music and a nice aesthetic. While the controls feel floaty and there are numerous other annoyances, there's still fun to be had exploring the intricate towns.

Tasomachi: Behind the Twilight is nice and relaxing-and that's about it. While the game is nice to look at and listen to, there's very little challenge and, for a collect-a-thon, I can see where that can turn some people off. If you don't mind a simple game then the budget price tag might not seem too high. But if you're looking for a challenge, you definitely won't find it here.

Overall, Tasomachi: Behind the Twilight is a bit of a letdown. I suppose some of that conclusion can be traced back to my own anticipation and misunderstanding of what the game was, but the fact is that objectively, Tasomachi is a simplistic collect-a-thon without a clear motivator to drive the player forward. While the game has a strong base, more could have been done to make it feel more like a game and less of a demo. While the sum of its parts leaves some to be desired, various aspects of Tasomachi: Behind the Twilight show what the developers at Orbital Express are capable of, and that is something I’ll be looking forward to.

Unambitious, easy, and rather brief, Tasomachi still does an admirable job of succeeding at what it sets out to do. With lovely visuals, tight controls, and plenty of relaxing exploration, it's hard to walk away as anything but charmed.

A calm yet uneven treasure-hunting experience.

Tasomachi: Behind the Twilight sits in the middle of the landscape for 3D platforming.

Take to the skies with your airship and help restore beautiful sprawling towns in TASOMACHI: Behind the Twilight. The fantasy platformer collect-a-thon promises a relaxed experience that lets players kick back and explore – will this simple and specific RPG inspire the adventurer in you?

Tasomachi: Beyond the Light starts off with an intriguing premise, but the plot doesn't go anywhere, and the ending feels abrupt. The environments are great to look at, and the platforming challenges vary greatly, but the platforming mechanics aren't tight enough to be enjoyable. It's a short game that can feel long, and while the dedicated collect-a-thon crowd may find it a tad enjoyable, everyone else will likely bail before getting the bare minimum needed to finish it all.

Tasomachi: Behind the Twilight is unpolished and suffers from its slow start and lack of story. It's not a standout game, not even a particularly good one...but there's something there. It's an introductory step by a fledgling developer that shows real promise.

Aimed mainly at compulsive collectors, Tasomachi offers a relaxing experience in a beautiful world with no combat and lots of exploring. Because of its clumsy platforming and lack of story, the game doesn't have a great impact or depth.

This is the sort of experience open-world games should be aspiring to provide: not endless checklists of pointless busywork, but incentives for players to explore these intricately crafted environments. You should come away from an open-world experience at the very least feeling like you know your way around — and in more picturesque examples, having a strong desire to visit those places if only they were real.

TASOMACHI: Behind the Twilight is a relaxing 3D platformer that's excellent if you want to chill while running and jumping around. Plus, its many cleverly-hidden collectibles, lovely music, and gorgeous game world are sure to delight as you explore.

Tasomachi: Behind the Twilight, as an action platformer, leaves something to be desired. Had it been announced as an exploration simulator, or even as an “ongoing project”, the title even fulfills its role. In terms of visuals, music and gameplay, Yukumo's adventure shows great potential; on the other hand, these positives aren't enough to make Tasomachi escape the fog of oblivion.

There is a lot that Tasomachi lacks to be a truly great platformer. However, if you can look past some of that, you'll find an alright platformer with great atmosphere.

I enjoyed TASOMACHI: Behind the Twilight, especially the soundtrack. I found it a pleasant way to unwind after a long day. Despite its charm, I don’t think it warrants an unreserved recommendation. The platforming is clumsy and uninspired, and the story is bare-bones. The visuals are attractive but lack the above and beyond quality they’d need to carry the game on their own. If a simple and laid-back experience sounds appealing, I think TASOMACHI is worth a look. If you want substantial platforming or narrative, you should play something else.

TASOMACHI: Behind the Twilight has some great ideas behind it. Unfortunately, the combination of headache-inducing visuals, repetitive gameplay, steep difficulty curves and the lack of an autosave feature makes this a tough title to recommend.

Tasomachi: Behind the Twilight is certainly an interesting journey. It is notable that there is considerable technical capacity and willingness behind the game, but they were not enough to make a good product. The game impresses by the look, but the lack of practical challenge puts it in a kind of limbo between boredom and curiosity.

I’ll admit that I was disappointed at first because it wasn’t the type of game I was expecting from the trailer. Then once I came to terms with what it actually offered, I was able to change my mindset and settle in for the ride. The easygoing nature of the game, along with exploring its beautiful environments, became a mellow, cathartic experience.
