Top Critic Average
For now, 140 just felt average, middle of the road. It all works well, but feels like stuff I’ve seen done a thousand times before, but better, with games such as Kuso having simplicity while also being a lot more polished and charming. Not a bad pick for a platformer, but not a unique one either.
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.
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.
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.
A challenging and fairly entertaining delivery, 140 is held back by its amount of content and a feeling that it's past its prime.
140 on the Nintendo Switch is still the same award winning rhythmic platformer, now on the Switch! 140 provides simplistic controls in conjunction with challenging beat-based puzzle-platformer action that will take players only a few hours of their time to beat. The experience is definitely worth the cost of admission.
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!
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

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!
