Felix the Reaper
Top Critic Average
Felix the Reaper's protagonist is a joy to watch in motion, but every other part of this frustrating puzzle game fails to match that level of charm.
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).

Even Felix’s sweet, sweet dance moves can’t throw the game’s glaring design flaws into shadow.
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 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.
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.
Casual fans of this type of genre may find Felix The Reaper to be too difficult after a certain point (the hint button can only help so much); however, this may be right up the alley for those who crave a serious challenge.
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.

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.

Demanding puzzles with a charming main character and night-black humor. But the camera work pulls it down
