Yet there is a lot to love about Almost There’s back to basics gameplay and slick control scheme. You’ll need the patience of a saint to complete the game but it’s worth it.

Almost There: The Platformer takes a stripped-down approach to enemies and level design and adds a twist: while gravity can kill you, it only has limited power over your movement. It subverts the jumping puzzle game and manages to meld it with a fun brainteaser because the designers realize that a real-world motion (the joystick) doesn't have to play by real world rules.
