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.

It's competent and well-made but ultimately uninspired. This is a game you will have fun with and then completely forget about. There are better platformers on Switch, but this one is worth a look if you feel the need to test yourself every time you see a gap or spikes that beg to be jumped over.

Needless to say, if you’re after a hardcore platformer that will keep you on the edge of your seat well into the early hours of the morning, Almost There: The Platformer will do the trick.

Almost There is a nice platformer that builds on known mechanics and is expanding levels by building more and more complex tracks. It starts off easy, but quickly becomes hardcore twitch platformer. Perfect for players who want to test their skills.

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.
