Critic Reviews for Inked

There is a lot of potential here for a great idea and certain moments are truly awesome, but the whole experience just doesn't hold up and ends on a low point. If you have a stronger stomach for finicky controls, though, Inked might just be the game for you.

Short, undemanding and nicely constructed, Inked: A Tale of Love is a couple of hours well worth exploring.

Simple but satisfying platform puzzles combined with some stunning hand drawn artwork make for a brief but emotional and entertaining adventure which dares to try something new.

Uniquely hand-drawn and detailed, Inked is a love story set in a beautiful world that feels minimalistic and simple, yet full of life and stories to tell. A comforting tale that touches on deeper life meanings while introducing creative puzzles to solve, this short and sweet game demands just the right amount of attention from the player. Unpredictable movements and controls make the experience feel less smooth, but the linear paths make it easy to know where our hero needs to go. It is a rewarding couple of hours well spent for those looking for a soothing and wholesome adventure.

Inked is a puzzle platform with a unique artistic direction which suffers, however, from a very inaccurate control system.

A Visual and Storytelling Delight

Read full review

The value of Inked lies above all in the ability to stage a small story of love and suffering by means of a very personal style and excellent visual impact. The Journey of the Hero - and, in parallel, of its creator - is a magnificent oriental painting in motion to which the refinement of a few touches of digital ink is enough to shape a truly enchanting glance.

Visually and audibly gorgeous, Inked battles to maintain its level of quality through an awkward camera, occasional obtuse puzzles and fumbled story
