Top Critic Average
Metrico+ really needs a lot more focus. It's throwing an awful lot at the wall, and while there's certainly a great deal of smarts at play here, they're not united, not well contained.
Metrico+ is one of the smarter puzzle games we've touched in a while. Its brainteasers will force you to think outside the box with a steady flow of fresh challenges, which illustrate the clever creativity that powers it through and through. Its spick-and-span art style and appealing soundscape also manage to divide and conquer, with small yet noticeable improvements across the board that round it out well.
While the game sorely lacks a decent story to match its competitors, METRICO+ is still a decent puzzle platformer at its core. Fans of Braid will feel at home with its complexity and innovation, often requiring a similar level of spatial awareness and movement conservation to get through a stage. It manages to balance on the fine line between being too simple and too difficult, only occasionally driving players to frustration due to a lack of contextual instructions.
The kitchen sink approach to input is gone in Metrico+, but the clever premise is still undermined by a timid, half-hearted execution.
If you are looking for something different or a game that can stimulate your mind, Metrico + is what you are searching for. The game has got a attractive design and it is simple and intuitive. The variety of puzzles and jump elements give the game an extra appeal. However, it does not offer many amounts of hours to play.

Honestly, I enjoyed Metrico+. It's strange design and simplistic nature combined with the puzzle solving aspects make for a fun, if short game. Plus, the music is just great to chill with and listen to.
It's great to see developers take criticism to heart and use those lessons to create a better experience the second time around.
Metrico+ improves on everything from the original game simply by changing which platform it's on. More people can now enjoy this unique looking and well made puzzle platformer.
'Metrico+' removes all of the gimmicks that made the original a burden to play, and replaces them with fantastic level design. This isn't a port, it's a complete overhaul that demonstrates what Digital Dreams has learned from their Vita exclusive. This update is well worth playing for puzzle platforming fans, regardless of whether or not one has played the 2014 game.
Metrico isn't a bad game. On the one hand, you're immediately captivated by the unique gameplay. On the other, the interface keeps hindering your progression and immersion.
