So, a strongly presented idea with Felix is his love of music. He slaps on a pair of headphones at the start of every level, his boss admonishes him for it in the first cut-scene of the game, and his every step is done dancing to the beat of the game's BGM. There's even a track list in the pause menu, letting you skip or replay tracks just as Felix might do.

Felix the Reaper might not be for everyone. The mechanics are easy to figure out, but meeting the objectives is very challenging. It's also very much a game about death. However, Felix is someone that is easy to root for. His dancing personality and the use of the game's soundtrack are highlights. If you are in the market for a challenging puzzle game, then Felix the Reaper that is a unique game that is worth trying.

Felix the Reaper is a mildly difficult puzzler that will appeal to those who enjoy object swapping and thinking several moves ahead. It’s light, gory humour and unique art style keeps things fresh. I just wish there was more room for pushing things beyond set solutions. It feels more like following a set of instructions than forging your own path.

Even Felix’s sweet, sweet dance moves can’t throw the game’s glaring design flaws into shadow.

Felix the Reaper is a surprisingly creative and entertaining 3D puzzle game that has an uncanny way of twisting dark humor and romance. If challenging puzzles with a nice background story are your thing, you can find Felix the Reaper on Steam on October 17th.

Even if puzzle games aren't really your thing, the standard of writing and quality of Felix's dancing are too good to pass up. If puzzle games are for you, then look no further than Felix the Reaper.

Felix starts dancing and, suddenly, you want to stand up and dance too. Felix the Reaper has style, and some challenging puzzles, but unfortunately the two sides never collide. Nevertheless, a solid performance by our dancing reaper (and his developers too).

Felix the Reaper is a fun puzzler that nails some of the most important aspects: difficulty, level design, and style. While the environments may not be as varied and the controls not as well executed, the title works well and should be on the radar of anyone who's fond of solving puzzles as a dancing Grim Reaper.

Felix the Reaper shows that even a puzzle game for occasional gamers can be of high quality. The nicely designed levels, the wonderfully animated protagonist and the funny-macabre cutscenes are a lot of fun and let the playing time involuntarily pass quickly.

The personality of this world and its characters are outright endearing. However, the lack of any real narrative is a large oversight in my book. However, those looking for fun and, at times, difficult puzzles are guaranteed to enjoy what is present. With the added benefit of accessibility features and hardcore challenge modes, those who tout gameplay as king will find themselves at home within Felix The Reaper.

With a lovable protagonist and a soundtrack to die for, Felix The Reaper's innovatively designed puzzles are hindered only by a fussy camera. At its core, however, resides an inexorable charm that deems this title a truly novel gem.

Felix the Reaper will be a game with which we can spend an afternoon helping our achuchable companion to get the attention of his beloved. We should not expect the best story, although the approach in the gameplay will be very original, and a reason to give it a try. In addition, it is on Xbox Game Pass, so it is easier than ever to give it a try.

Felix the Reaper is a dark romantic-comedy puzzle game that shows promise with its loads of personality, but it's held back by overly simple gameplay.

Felix the Reaper is an excellent game on paper, but its execution dooms it. While the unique concept shines—and I doubt I'll be forgetting such a lovable face of death anytime soon—the actual gameplay made it a bit of a slog.

Driven by an exquisite and eclectic soundtrack, Felix the Reaper is a fun and challenging puzzle game. Too easy or too difficult depending on the way the player makes use of the cheats, this title may not delight all fans of the genre but it's rather likeable.

The way that Felix the Reaper is packaged together, and the light-hearted nature of it all, does drag you back in. It’s charming nonsense, and with plenty of additional options to replay levels to challenge yourself further, it won’t be a game you’re done with in a hurry either, once it has its hooks into you.

GOOD - Felix The Reaper brings a tragic comedy in the form of a challenging puzzle game to the Nintendo Switch. With a catchy soundtrack, vibrant visuals, and a reasonably fun storyline narrated by Sir Patrick Stewart, there’s a good game play here for only $24.99 on the eShop.

Felix the Reaper at times leans into its quirky and unique art style. However, the biggest disconnect comes with the effort to unify this with gameplay. Puzzles often feel like a grind, leaving little mastery when all things are said and done.

A wretched, annoying puzzle game that consists primarily of tedious busywork. While Felix the Reaper has bags of personality, a vein of dark humour, and the inimitable voice of Sir Patrick Stewart, it regrettably isn't nearly as fun as it looks. As far as I'm concerned, Felix can go dance off the edge of a cliff.
