Game Information

Available on:PlayStation 4Sep 6, 2016
Wii USep 6, 2016

Developer: Double Fine Productions

Genre: Platformer

140 is a challenging minimalistic platformer with abstract colorful graphics. Rhythmic awareness is required to overcome obstacles controlled by an energetic, yet melancholic electronic soundtrack. Super tight puzzle design and a striking audiovisual presentation come together to form a challenging platforming experience!

140 is a cold, mathematical yet beautiful and sensory platforming experience with a pulsing synthetic soundtrack and reflexive movement.

140 seems like more of an artistic experiment testing the boundaries of games as art; like Bauhaus art, this title is definitely open to interpretation. Some individuals may view it as a deeper philosophical experience while others may just see a bunch of geometrical colourful shapes flying around on-screen. As a game, first and foremost, 140 isn't quite on par with some leading titles within this genre. Despite how well the audiovisual presentation is tied to the gameplay, the ruthless nature of this one does detract from the overall enjoyment on offer.

140 takes its minimalist credentials seriously and reduces all elements to the...minimum, emphasizing its excellent controls and level design. The concept is very well executed and this could be a more memorable game if only its content was wider and the price a bit more in a line with what it brings.

My only gripe with this game was that there is no pausing, which I suppose is not necessary as there are only three short levels with three bosses and depending on your skill you could be done in about an hour or so. 140 is a lot of fun, and if you liked SoundShapes you should love this one. I highly recommend it despite its difficulty because it kept me very happy and busy as I wrote my 140 review, and when a short game grabs you, its always a blast!
