Embers of Mirrim came out of nowhere to be one of the best platformers in any console generation. It will give the player the sense they can do things they never thought possible, and the feeling of self-satisfaction upon beating that boss, finally crossing that tricky section, or reaching a new area is so profound here, it's stunning. Even if you aren't a fan of platformers, this one is a must-try.

Embers of Mirrim is a fun puzzle platformer on PlayStation 4 with plenty to do and some clever puzzles to keep you busy until the end. It has a good trophy list and solid graphics and an excellent soundtrack, all for less than $20. You should definitely add this one to your collection!

A beautifully fleshed out world full of adventure told in a creative way brings something new and needed in this comeback of the platforming genre.

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.

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?

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.

Mirrim's puzzles stumped me, left me scratching my head, and then made me feel like an idiot when I figured them out.
