Critic Reviews for Shiny

Shiny is an average platforming title that despite its various issues, can result in a fair bit of fun.

With breathtakingly haunting audio and some nostalgic gameplay, Shiny is a wordlessly emotional story with a sympathetic hero that has all the potential to be a great experience.

An uninspiring story, bugs and performance issues and frustrating gameplay makes Shiny a game I just cannot recommend for anyone.

In the end, I can’t help but feel as if Shiny could have been so much better than it ended up being. While its soundtrack does a very solid job of engrossing you in its established world, the aesthetically unpleasing presentation takes away from this emotional adventure. Some sluggish controls can usually be forgiven as well, but when a game relies this much on perfect planning and careful thinking, the gameplay has to be impeccable for it to work accordingly.

There are always going to be games released that don’t quite meet the high’s you’re led to believe prior to getting rigorously stuck into the depth of gameplay and technical stability underpinning the experience.

Shiny tries its best with a winning aesthetic and concept, but technical malfunctions and clumsy controls ultimately keep it from being worth most peoples’ time.

There isn’t any wall-jumping, double jumps or any other fancy manoeuvres, just pure precision platforming
