Forma.8 does not invent anything new in the genre, but it got an artistic design and sound section that fit perfectly and make you feel in an atmosphere that will catch you with its variety of puzzles and challenges adding a very tight curve of difficulty. It is a good metroidvania game.

Beautiful and surprising, forma.8 is a great mix of platform gaming and atmosphere from "another world", with a lot of puzzles.

MixedBag’s approach to a Metroidvania-styled explorer-type game is an admirable one.
forma.8 is game worth playing, with great graphics, fun gameplay and a solid adventure. The game is a perfect fit for the Nintendo Switch due to the consoles nature, playing at home or on the go without any interruption. It's a short adventure that will take you roughly 6-7 hours to complete, but it's all good with no unnecessary content to increase the number of time spent on a game for no reason.
forma.8 is a fun and charming Metroidvania release with plenty to offer. It might feel short for some of you since it will probably take you 5-6 hours to complete, but that only means it's an entertaining release that doesn't overstay its welcome.
All in all, forma.8 is a game that presents a lot of very fresh concepts that absolutely deserve to be explored further.
It is very difficult to complain about such an affordable and aesthetically-rich package. For its price point, Forma.8 is a surprisingly long and thoughtful Metroidvania-style experience.
forma.8 is all about exploring the environment, and to that end, it gives plenty to explore. With some clever enemies and bosses, and one of the most beautiful, yet minimalist, art styles around, it manages to set itself apart from so many other Metroidvania games. It suffers from its touchy controls, but is still worth a trip.
Exploring the stylish world in Forma.8 is a joy. The endless backtracking can be a chore but overall Forma.8 is an enjoyable sci-fi title that fits the Metroidvania genre.
Forma.8‘s gameplay is solid, if not a little frustrating at times, but its great sound design and brilliant aesthetic really sets it apart from the crowd.
