The between light and dark and the colors of the two worlds do make the game visually appealing. Unfortunately, the lack of content and the game's physics make this title a hard one to recommend. One particularly difficult stage took me over 200 tries, and almost had me break my Switch in two; maybe the Dark Souls comparison is apt after all.

7 / 10

If you're the type of person who, for example, loves to 100% game such as Super Meat Boy, then Alteric is one release that will certainly scratch that “want to play a challenging but not unfair game” itch. Can you make it to the end? Will you manage to unlock the Platinum trophy? Let us know in the comments below!

Alteric probably is going to fall by the wayside when it's all said and done. Which is a bit unfortunate. It has potential and if you give it a chance it's a good way to kill a few hours with a challenging platformer if you're into that kind of thing.

Alteric had the potential to be a good alternative to the difficult platforming genre. However, the various issues that rise up, from "sliding" off during intricate platforming sections, to respawning on top of a boss for another immediate death, can be very annoying.
