Exception is a Tron-like visual feast, full of inventive and dynamic action platforming that's as satisfying as it is stylish.
Exception almost wound up being exceptional, but unfortunately is broken enough to warrant steering clear of until things are fixed
Exception is a fast, fluid skill based platformer that is a lot of fun. The quick levels never get repetitive and have a lot of variety to them, while the stellar audiovisual presentation never fails to impress. Unfortunately, the flow is broken up by needless bosses but thankfully they are few and far between.
Sadly, there’s no way to know what life in a computer is actually like. Exception does a damn fine job of imagining it, though
Exception is, by and large, a great game that introduces a unique and compelling twist to the platforming genre with its transforming levels.
Exception is a fun, aesthetically pleasing game. But it offers little to keep the player invested. Some new game modes would be an awesome addition.
Despite a story that wasn’t very interesting and the jumping feeling a little floaty I would recommend Exception to fans of platformers.
Exception is a bog-standard platformer that rarely rises above mediocrity. Its saving grace is an excellent presentation and a fire soundtrack that you should check out even if you have no interest in playing the actual game. Otherwise, look elsewhere for your platforming kicks.
While it can be frustrating to just barely overjump something or miss hitting an enemy while you’re racing through, this only encourages players to retry for a better score. The game’s difficulty is perfectly balanced for either jumping from level to level to progress through the story, or to step it up a notch and go for a perfect score on every world.
2D action game fans will find a lot to love in the stylish Exception, especially those who enjoy speedrunning through bite-sized stages.
It’s easy to pick up, it’s difficult to master and offers badass bosses at the end of each world whilst sword-fighting robot viruses intent on taking over an old lady’s computer to a synthwave soundtrack blasting over beautifully designed neon-infused levels.
It is a fun platformer that gives you a good variety in the levels and offers a unique platformer to play through.
"The strongest feature that Exception brings with it is that no level is static in its design."
