Good game with very interesting phases with puzles and plattformers level. It's very similar than other indie titles as Limbo or Badland. But Toby is original in some gampley's mechanic. Also is very short.

Toby: The Secret Mine has fair visuals and a decent level variety, but disappointingly relies too heavily on inspiration from previous indie successes to blossom into anything truly original.

Games like this, you’ll die without warning, which can be pretty annoying.

Toby: The Secret Mine has plenty of great ideas that could make it a great game, but it quickly plummets down a mineshaft thanks to a number of missteps. It generally succeeds as a puzzle game, but the heavy focus on platforming doesn't work well and hampers the overall experience. By following the basic visual style and gameplay from such a highly regarded game like Limbo, The Secret Mine sets itself a standard it's never able to reach.

Toby: The Secret Mine is inspired, to say the least. Its not its imitation of previous games that kills it, but its execution of those elements. It had potential, but you've seen this game before.

There are interesting puzzles in Toby: The Secret Mine set within a fantastic visual environment, if only this was enough to extend the game's short lifespan then it would certainly be a highly recommended 2D platformer but the game is so quick to complete that it rules itself out from being at an advantage point when compared to other games of the same genre.

What's frustrating about Toby: The Secret Mine is that it feels like it's actually trying to offer more than the sum of its parts, but just doesn't quite pull it off. It feels too bogged down in its inspirations to present any exciting ideas of its own, and while it's visually stunning at times, even this apes off superior titles that came before. Some challenging platforming and decent puzzles make it one to consider if you're looking to give your Wii U one last Nindie hurrah, but otherwise we'd recommend waiting on a digital sale before diving into this dark adventure.

Is a platform game developed by Lukas Navratil Games that at first sight stands out for its artistic and visual effects, this remind us other titles such as Limbo.

Toby: The Secret Mine isn't a bad game because it's so similar to other titles. It's bad because it can't even come close to matching the strength of releases from five years ago.

Toby: The Secret Mine lacks inspiration and original ideas: it's a puzzle-platform adventure inspired by masterpieces like Limbo and Inside, but it isn't able to rival with them.
