Giga Wrecker Alt is an interesting idea let down by frustrating control issues and poorly executed physics.

Giga Wrecker Alt. is a game that teeters on the brink of a great experience. It has some wonderful ideas that are hampered by the lackluster controls and frustrating execution. The world and its surroundings are great, the ideas are fantastic, but it just never hits that sweet spot of being something I felt compelled to keep coming back to. I struggled to get past some parts while others were a pure joy to play. It is the definition of mixed emotions.

GIGA WRECKER Alt. is a fun and enjoyable metroidvania type of game that features a good amount of action, exploration and platforming, as well as decent level of puzzle challenges. It doesn't go all the way to become an instant classic and it's difficult for the game to rise above its peers but it does a competent job at providing a good experience.

A cool and unique physics-based puzzle platformer from the house of Pokémon, Giga Wrecker Alt. has some nice twists and mechanics. It's found a perfect home on console.
