Embers of Mirrim Reviews
Embers of Mirrim is a solid puzzle-platformer with atmospheric visuals and storytelling woven into interesting puzzle segments. It's rather short and can sometimes be frustrating due to a few shortcomings, but the overall package is quite fun and engaging to play through once.
Embers of Mirrim has a fantastic core concept: controlling two characters simultaneously in a 2.5D platformer. Developer Creative Bytes have leveraged this concept against a deep variety of puzzles and challenges, and wrapped the whole thing in a majestic, understated graphical style.
Although Embers of Mirrim doesn't last long, it has some unique ideas and stays entertaining throughout.
All told, Embers Of Mirrim is a delightful fantasy adventure with only a few notable flaws. It may be a bit on the short side and have some jarring bottlenecks that pull you out of your enjoyment, but it's a beautiful game to experience from an artistic standpoint. We would recommend it to anyone who has an appreciation for art in gaming form. Although the gameplay sometimes misses that mark, Mirrim nonetheless stands as a worthy experience for those that are looking to try something a little more thoughtful.
Embers of Mirrim is a platformer of its own kind with puzzle elements and which makes a very original use of the two analog sticks that are part of the Nintendo Switch control scheme. It may have its frustrating elements but the game's benefits largely outweigh its shortcomings and is a very recommended game for fans of platform games who also enjoy a puzzle component.

Embers of Mirrim offers some solid, clever and challenging platform action. If only it had a more gripping story, or something else which drew you into the characters it might have been a bit more memorable.
Mirrim's puzzles stumped me, left me scratching my head, and then made me feel like an idiot when I figured them out.
Like the main character, I'm of two minds about it. Thinking back on it there were pieces I really enjoyed. But it was also the kind of game I couldn't play for more than a half hour at a time. Even when I was enjoying it, I could feel it overstaying its welcome. It's decent in short bursts, but marathoning it would just expose its warts even further.
Abstract and downright mesmerising, Embers Of Mirrim is one of the most impressive platformers this generation.
Embers of Mirrim is a gorgeous little title that can be easily overlooked until you actually see it in motion. It has the atmosphere of Journey, with a hint of Ori and the Blind Forest wrapped with scenic landscapes that wouldn’t look out of place in Pandora. The splitting mechanic sets up some fun puzzling sections with a subtle push to ease you into its control system. Combine that with boss battles that you have to think about along with a fantastic musical score and you have a brief but memorable experience that feels nicely at home on the Nintendo Switch.
Though it was hard to distinguish myself on the screen at certain times, I was able to prevail and truck on. With the top-notch visual design, I really enjoyed experiencing the atmosphere that the developers created. So whether you are jumping over chasms, pouncing on weakened bosses, or scratching your head on a hard to solve puzzle, you are sure to have a great time playing through this beautiful and challenging title.
To my surprise, the game is in the TOP10 personal purchases on the Nintendo Switch this year about the game I didn't hear quite smoothly until news of the forthcoming release on our website, and I think it only played into the hands of the project. Embers of Mirrim turned self-sufficient, interesting and most importantly original platformer, in which is conceived mechanics and cute main character makes you empathize with him, even in the relatively quiet moments of the game, the game is not Russian language, but the text in the game, that is, all the scenes which see the players do not have dialogues. Embers of Mirrim deserve whatever it drew the attention, indeed, so good and kind of projects is less.

Embers of Mirrin delivers the best of platforming games and puzzle games in a single fun package. With brain teasing puzzles, platform jumping action, and gorgeous graphics, this game is great for anyone who wants a platformer built for current consoles.
Embers of Mirrim is a solid puzzle platformer. The parts that involve individual thumbstick coordination can be tricky and frustrating at times, but the platforming and twin-stick puzzles provide just the right amount of challenge. It's also forgiving enough for all skill levels, so everyone can enjoy it without getting too hung up on certain parts. Platforming fans, Embers of Mirrim deserves your attention.
Embers of Mirrim is an ambitious game. It combines visual storytelling with mechanics that make the player think about how to get through obstacles, and also has a touch of fast-paced escape fights that, while aiming to fill the moment with tension, ultimately falls flat
I greatly enjoyed my time with the game for my Embers of Mirrim review. It's a solid platformer with a slight learning curve due to how you need to control both embers at the same time, but once you get the hang of things, it's a very fun experience. There's plenty to do, a Platinum trophy and lots of fun for less than $20. What's not to like?
Embers of Mirrim is a beautiful looking game with a unique approach to platforming, and outside of the challenge getting a bit frustrating late in the game, it's a solid title worth checking out on the PC, PS4, or Xbox One.
If you’re looking for something that combines both the platforming and puzzling world, whilst trying something a little different, Embers of Mirrim is for you.
Overall, I’d say Embers of Mirrim isn’t a game that you’d appreciate when you’re looking for good graphics and decent story, but if you’re looking for a platformer title which has unique mechanics, then this this game is just perfect for you.
A fun platformer that offers five to six hours of unique platforming, and a pace that rarely slows
