Klaus is an unusual, post-modern platformer that reflects on what it means to be alive.

Klaus is a really fascinating game, full of nice little touches, but with flawed controls and some frustrating moments.

One of the most inventive puzzle platformers in years thanks to the way it constantly defies expectations, but the story is nowhere near as interesting as the game design, and it goes on for far too long.

Klaus is a thought-provoking platformer that usurps expectations and will stick with you long after you've finished playing.

Klaus is a good game that takes too long to become so. The commentary baked into its narrative bleeds into the gameplay resulting in mechanics that are not provided enough nourishment to grow and an exposition that will lose many due to its over-commitment to delivering a message. The initial impression leaves a bad taste, and in a world where first impressions matter, this is difficult to overlook.

A solid debut title for La Cosa Entertainment, KLAUS looks good and tells its story very well. A bit too easy for seasoned players, which feels unrewarding, but still plenty to like about this quirky platformer.

The style of this game is what drew me in at the start. Flashy animations with a unique design that reminds me a bit of a cartoon film noir.

Klaus is, in a word, brilliant. While it may not exactly win the hearts of those who don't like the 2D platformer style, it's an expertly-designed addition to the genre that creates a challenging experience without ever seeming insurmountable.

KLAUS is an impressive puzzle platformer that constantly defies the player's expectations. Building up mechanics only to break them, La Cosa Entertainment has crafted one of the most interesting platformers in quite some time.
