Scarf is a nice if not particularly original idea, disappointingly executed on almost all fronts.

A narrative adventure that succeeds in a truly remarkable feat: inserting good and not repetitive environmental puzzles into the adventure while keeping the experience simple and approachable. A simple but solid game, not too long and not too short, that only fails in not being able to best tell its story. SCARF remains a product that will make you spend 4-5 pleasant hours, and it's enough.

Scarf offers a short and sweet platforming experience. It's perfectly enjoyable to play, but you'll likely be left wanting more when the credits roll.

Short but sweet, Scarf is an intriguing, enjoyable little game for most of its runtime.

Scarf doesn't brave new platforming territory, but platforming newbies will appreciate its forgiving nature, and it tells an interesting and often dark story in an engaging way.

Scarf is a short and sweet visual journey with some technical problems and little difficulty.

Scarf certainly is an enjoyable experience; its combination of engaging story and strong environments are enough to keep the player absorbed for its four hour campaign. But due to its commonplace gameplay, it doesn't do enough to make it a true standout in the genre. But regardless of its issues, Scarf is for those wanting a leisurely and fantastical escape from the troubles of the world; something we could all use from time to time.

Scarf doesn't try to reinvent anything, but its pace, its art direction and its world are calming, welcoming and entertaining.

Aside from the shortage of optimization, the short game time and the price, which I found a little high accordingly; Scarf was a game that I thought could be played at least twice with good storytelling and nice puzzles, albeit in small numbers.

Scarf is a beautiful and short ethereal experience with a special atmosphere, jumping and simple object-based puzzles. Such a pleasant little indie gem that will last an evening or two.

SCARF is a singer without a voice and a dancer without legs. There were tons of things that could have been great within it, but none of them were capitalised on, and it felt like there weren't enough resources spent on where it mattered.

Scarf has the pieces to be laid back and enjoyable platformer. It may get repetitious at times, but never fully frustrating. Hardcore fans of both platforming and puzzles will find a jewel in Scarf.

Scarf is the perfect game for players who fondly remember titles like Spyro, Journey, and Abzu but want to be able to finish a game in its entirety in one sitting. Its emotionally driven storyline is short, sweet, and to the point with aesthetics that enchant from beginning to end. If you’re looking for something with a fresh yet familiar feel to sink your teeth into without committing too much time and money, it’s honestly hard to top Scarf.

While it’s not pushing the genre any further forward, Scarf is a perfectly pleasant way to spend 6 hours of your life. As a non-combative puzzle platformer, it lacks originality. Thankfully, a clever two sided narrative carries the game as it tells both sides of a tale and positions the player in the centre. Just make sure you play this game with a guide so you don’t have to replay whole levels again.

A simple, yet enjoyable puzzle platformer, Scarf is a beautiful title that plays around with the tried and true tale of the hero defeating evil.

Scarf does not add anything new to its genre, but the simple mechanics and stunning visuals make this short and relaxing experience enjoyable. However, the controls and puzzles could have been better.

Scarf is an endearing experience. It wears its inspirations on its sleeve and doesn’t shatter the genre’s conventions with innovative ideas, but still finds enough sure footing to set itself apart from its contemporaries. Moreover, an unsurprising story and a few instances of intentional time-wasters in puzzles aren’t enough to lessen the benefits of its brisk pace and variety of gorgeous environments. It may not hit the highest highs of the genre, but if you’re in the mood for an atmospheric puzzle platformer, you could do much worse.
