140 is a cold, mathematical yet beautiful and sensory platforming experience with a pulsing synthetic soundtrack and reflexive movement.
140 looks and sounds as great as ever on the Switch, though some boss battles and a lack of meaningful post-game content means that it's like an album you'll listen to once and forget about until you come back to it years later.
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.

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.
Excellent rhythm game that has truly stood the test of time. At the low price point, it is hard not to recommend 140 for any Nintendo Switch owner looking for an enjoyable jaunt through a colorful beat.
A challenging and fairly entertaining delivery, 140 is held back by its amount of content and a feeling that it's past its prime.
More platforming variety, like special abilities, and incentives, like hidden or hard-to-reach collectables would have been a welcome addition, but as it is I would only recommend 140 to the genre-fan who has to play every single game out there.
For a small project created thanks to Unity in developer's spare time, 140 is unrivaled. The production and level design is miles ahead of similar games in this genre and it's highly likely that we'll see it's impact on future games

140 is a charming, difficult, and incredibly short experience that manages to be both sadistic and inviting the entire time it's on. While it may not last too long, it's still a game any platformer or music fan should invest their time into. While a true platforming juggernaut could finish everything in the game in a few hours, it's the only experience like it, and it's one of the best rhythm platformers ever made.
If you’re looking for a challenging bite-sized platformer, you should certainly check 140!
