Critic Reviews for One Hand Clapping

Of course, the whole point is to have a good time trying something new. One Hand Clapping is fun for singers and non-singers alike so I’m sure everyone will enjoy this creative experience. You can use it as an excuse to warm up your voice if you’re going out for Christmas caroling, or you can just sing to your heart’s content while actually making progress in a video game. And who knows, maybe you’ll find out you actually have a knack for singing.

‎We all interpret different voices, but in the end, we must find the one that is our own, the one that allows us to express ourselves as we are. Correctly conveying its message, One Hand Clapping is a work that ‎‎plays a vital role in establishing the trust and sincerity of what we say.‎‎ It doesn't matter if our voice is not so poetic, powerful or sophisticated. It is ours and it is about communicating from it, taking the reins of our personality, expressing it without any kind of cover.‎

In terms of concept, One Hand Clapping is one of the most interesting games in a long time. However, it can get a bit boring due to repetitive puzzles.

One Hand Clapping is a vibrant 2D puzzle platformer whose use of voice helps it stand out. Every area in the game looks unique and it is constantly changing up how you have to use your voice to interact with the environments. I think some of the later parts get kind of complicated and I’m not sure what the story in the game is really about if there was one. If you’re looking to use your voice to interact with a game in a new way you should give it a try.

One Hand Clapping has the right idea but was executed somewhat poorly. For a game centred around music, the audio design truly was a disappointing factor.

One Hand Clapping is an amazing looking 2D platformer and the concept is definitely unique and interesting. Unfortunately, it's more interesting than the game itself.

We should forever remain impressed with One Hand Clapping. It’s fresh and unique in a way that makes you hit your forehead and wonder why you didn’t think of it sooner. But in my heart, I know that One Hand Clapping could have become something so much better had it been a truly solid platformer in its own right, or swung hard into teaching singing, or created deeper, more impactful melodies to really convey a more coherent story. I’m grateful for a game like this to exist, but I can’t deny that the feeling is slightly overshadowed by my eagerness for another title to learn from this one and refine the concept further. Regardless, One Hand Clapping is good now, priced fairly, and definitely deserves your attention… as long as you have a microphone.

An innovative, inventive and unique experience in gaming, One Hand Clapping is impressive in almost every way. Whether you are a trained singer or have never sung a note in your life, this game accommodates you to translate your voice into a part of the game play. It's only 5 hours long which includes some repetition, but this visually pleasing and enjoyable game is an experience that will be difficult to forget.
