Top Critic Average
Refunct is almost a mystical experience that begins with a bit of curiosity and finishes half an hour later with the adrenaline flowing in the veins, constantly throwing the eye to the next point of handhold and reflecting in milliseconds on how to reach it. It never becomes a tough or frustrating game, but instead it tries to be refreshing and relaxing, especially if you come from a hard working day. Given that the cost is around ' 3 it could easily become a way to get back on track after a bad day.

The description contains a bullet list of selling points like "Peaceful," "Relaxing," and "Seamless," and it certainly delivers on these promises. The controls feel good, too, with the actual platforming being very forgiving, and there are little collectables you can pick up but to no real end. If you need something to take your mind off a stressful day or an impossible Dark Souls boss, or just as a break between 30-hour RPGs, Refunct might do the trick. Just don't jump in expecting Mirror's Edge or Portal.
While the idea is laudable and worthy of attention, Refunct does very little to go beyond something superficial and short-lived. It's clear that there was potential to make this a more ambitious game, so what Refunct proposes feels like a big disappointment.
