Anomaly 1729 Critic Reviews

Anomaly 1729 doesn’t feel like a game that wants to be the next Portal, it feels like a game that trying to fool you into thinking it’s the next Portal. It never gives the impression that the developers were trying for something great and failed, rather it feels like they’re trying to trick customers to make a quick buck.

4.5 / 10.0

I was very interested going into Anomaly 1729, but I’m leaving it incomplete and disappointed. I’m sure that my door issue was just me missing something, but the game had annoyed me too much at that point to want to find the solution. Anomaly has some interesting concepts, but it fails to entice me to explore it deeper.

Evocative graphics and an original soundtrack aside, this fiendishly difficult puzzle platformer is a hard road to follow.
