Toby: The Secret Mine Reviews
There is much to enjoy about Toby: the Secret Mine. The title is a solid indie platformer that delivers on both gameplay and art direction.
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.
While beautiful in some aspects, Toby: The Secret Mine fails to grasp its potential, and leaves me with a bitter taste in my mouth. It's short, way too challenging, and way too random at points that will frustrate even the most patient of gamers.
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.

Regarding the game’s challenge and difficulty, I would say that Toby: The Secret Mine is challenging but never frustrating. It’s a short game, sure, but it has a lot of fun to offer. The developers have managed to deliver a polished game on Wii U. If you want a good puzzle platformer for your Nintendo home console, you should definitely download Toby: The Secret Mine!
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.
If you’re looking for a more casual LIMBO-stye game, this is certainly one I can recommend, because, after further evaluation, this is pretty much what Toby is going for in my estimation. A simpler, more accessible, friendlier LIMBO. It’s not a bad game. If, however, you’re like me and looking for a more core game like the former, this won’t hit those marks, though it could be a worthy play down the line with a sale, or if you just need more of these kinds of games in your library right now.
Toby: The Secret Mine is a short and frequently frustrating adventure.
