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.

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

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.

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.

A calm yet uneven treasure-hunting experience.

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 is a short game that feels longer due to boring presentation and uninteresting controls

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.

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.

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.
