A nice puzzle game that sometimes surprises the player, but doesn't achieve to offer something new or flashy.

Despite being a fun game, Binaries’ Super Meat Boy gameplay style doesn’t quite fit a puzzle game like this. Mainly due to our feeble human inability to monitor two characters at once.

6 / 10

Binaries features a good idea and an interesting concept in a genre that is already heavily represented in the Nintendo Switch catalog. What it does less well is the way it implements its difficulty level, which gets too much protagonism for its own good and can make the gameplay experience more frustrating.

Overall, then, Binaries is a decent puzzler that is definitely worth the time of players who can't resist having a ‘100%' icon plastered over their save file and enjoy speed-running through dangerous levels. It doesn't tend to innovate past its main theme, though – instead relying on more obstacles, spikes and guns to make things trickier. If you're desperate for a puzzle game that will have you trying to complete levels over and over again (before feeling a huge amount of satisfaction when you finally complete one you've been stuck on), then this may well be for you.
