Critic Reviews for Contrast

Contrast is a game full of heart, beauty, and at least a few excellent puzzles.

Read full review

As its name suggests, Contrast is a game of light and dark: a puzzle platformer with two well-realised female leads that occasionally buckles under the weight of its own mechanics. It's beautiful in parts, but also a little broken; I admire it for the first and can almost forgive it the second.

Contrast has a lot of heart, but its protagonist and environments lack some soul. It's not the best puzzle platformer you'll ever play, but it's far from the worst.

It'd be nice to say that at least it's something different but Contrast is far more mundane and derivative than it first appears. It's also a near farce on a technical level.

Lovely story and atmosphere marred by bad pacing and some broken puzzles

Contrast is a frequently beautiful mess

Wonky physics and prosaic puzzles prevent Contrast from making the most of its intriguing concept and intoxicating atmosphere.

Its setting and art style are as romantic as its storyline is dark. The dichotomies of #d and 2D and light and dark complement the game well.
