8.5 / 10.0
Raymond Porreca

Despite its brisk pace and sparse storytelling, Small Radios Big Televisions manages to feel like a complete handcrafted package. The game shines when you're weaving between corridors and virtual worlds hunting for keys to a mystery among forgotten places and glitchy spaces. Like any great mixtape, Small Radios is packed with moments worth remembering, even if feels like it should be just one song longer.

A different kind of puzzle game, perfect for those who want something not very hard but calm proposal.

7 / 10.0
Chris White

It's not a bad puzzle game by any means, and the virtual worlds add intrigue and wonder, but overall you won't be going back after finishing the two-hour playthrough.

5 / 10
Stephen Tailby

While very short and suffering from some control issues, Small Radios Big Televisions mostly succeeds in delivering a fun, bizarre adventure game. Its presentation is its greatest strength, offering moments of tranquility and also of total obscurity. It's a shame that the puzzles never grow beyond their initial design, as the premise practically begs to be expanded upon. Hopefully a more fleshed out sequel can introduce some new ideas, as there's the core of a good game here. It's just not quite long enough or varied enough, so you may want to rewind your expectations before pressing play.
