Bramble: The Mountain King is one of the best story games I’ve played in a while. If the uniquely tragic subject matter is something you can deal with, you’re in for a uniquely heart-wrenching, tension filled horror story you just won’t find anywhere else.

Bramble: The Mountain King has so much to offer. It’s almost a miracle that everything fits into just one game, with its incredibly rich story, diverse world, and the many twists you’ll encounter. This game has proven to be a masterpiece that isn’t just played, it is experienced and can appeal to anybody who wants a great story… And possibly a look at some of the more bizarre creatures from Nordic and Scandinavian folklore.

An anthology of Nordic myths that is easy for anyone to understand, but while the gruesome production increases immersion, the volume of the stories feels somewhat short, and the monotonous boss battles and quiz composition lack the fun of conquest

Bramble: The Mountain King is a horror adventure that knows what it's doing. Its world-building based on Nordic culture is impeccable, presenting mythological stories and characters to an audience that most likely did not know or had so much contact with them. Balancing mediocre platforming with simple puzzles, limited exploration, creative battles and an atmosphere that successfully manages to be scary and beautiful at the same time, this short little game doesn't prolong its stay, knowing how to stop while it is still on top.

'Bramble: The Mountain King' is a puzzle platformer with a necessary dose of horror elements. This well-known concept comes with some unique additions so that the game can distinguish itself from the rest. It is very linear and has very little replay value. Nevertheless, the beautiful images, through the strong use of light, provide an experience that will leave your eyes open. A top of an indie game.

Bramble: The Mountain King offers an adventure that’s beautiful and horrifying in equal measure, so expect to be kept on the edge of your seat when playing. Don’t get me wrong, it can be guilty of keeping things simple and there’s not much here you wouldn’t have seen before from a gameplay perspective, but the way that it keeps players hooked in with its luscious world and terrifying encounters with enemies is simply enthralling. It’s rare that a game manages to shock me time and time again when playing, but man, Bramble: The Mountain King maintained that unnerving sense of fear right until the very end.

Bramble: The Mountain King is an adventure game that shows a fictional story while including elements of horror and Norse mythological stories from a different perspective, to give us a unique and distinctive adventure, but it did not offer a variety of playstyle and was overly reliant on theses limited playstyle throughout the game, which affected this unique experience.
