Relentless and brutal, this post-apocalyptic pixel art survival quest is a gruelling, if often beguiling, challenge.

Rain World is a maddening thing, because of quite how special it could have been. Beautiful environments, incredible animations and enticingly hazy mechanics are fantastic, but the sheer cruelty of how it's pieced out to the player transcends challenge and becomes an unwanted trial.

One of the best-looking 2D games ever made, but the beautiful animation can’t compensate for the tediously unfair gameplay.

An endearingly designed creature and a captivating world in ruins cannot save this 2D platformer from its punishing gameplay.

With core systems opaque and unnecessarily limited, all I ever felt equipped to do in Rain World was fail.

I feel so badly for this game in a way. It seems so close to being something special and wonderful, but is just undermined at every turn by baffling design choices, poor controls, and frustration. Maybe some of these issues will be addressed in a future patch and Rain World will become the game it feels like it should have been. Someone else will have to let me know. As far as I'm concerned, my days of being a slugcat are officially behind me and I won't be looking back.

Rain World is a formidable experience to fans of the survival genre, and one that you can now take with you on the go via the Nintendo Switch.
