Critic Reviews for Mr. Shifty

A blissfully fluid action game with a compelling twist, let down occasionally by tedious encounters.

Mr. Shifty's action-packed adventure about a teleporting hero offers a similar adrenaline high as Hotline Miami and Superhot.

6.2 / 10.0

Mr. Shifty is an okay brawler that uses a stylish warping ability as a cool way to get the drop on unsuspecting foes. While it's fun to smack down security goons with quick melee skills, the horrible framerate of the final act will test your patience. If you do endure and manage to drop the final boss, Mr. Shifty doesn't present enough reasons to replay it.

Arguably a better follow-up to Hotline Miami than its own sequel, but it wastes its best idea on repetitive action that lacks any substantial challenge.

Mr. Shifty has a lot of potential, but is marred by technical issues and a dull endgame

A scrappy underdog of a game that will send you on a short but glorious power trip.

While the combat may have some depth and the game is certainly tongue-in-cheek, it just doesn’t present enough new ideas to sustain itself. I think it’s worth a playthrough, but I don’t believe we’ll be talking about Mr. Shitfy for years to come. Just as quickly as Shifty himself enters and leaves a room, so too does this game enter and exit your mind.

It's not as long or hard as Hotline Miami, but it manages to grab you until you finish it. Hooray for a well balanced dificulty.
