Critic Reviews for Ministry of Broadcast

An odd combination of George Orwell's 1984, puzzle platforming and comedy, which doesn't blend as well as you'd hope. As good as the setting is, it doesn't make up for the rigid platforming or out of place jokes.

Ministry of Broadcast has some weaknesses but also a lot of style. So much it feels original even if you can clearly see Pince of Persia, Flashback or other classics inside his shell. All of this wouldn't be possibile without his strong narrarive and his on-point irony: there's nothing better than laughing to force your brain to work.

Ministry of Broadcast is very much like the games it takes inspiration from. But the insanely unreliable controls and the obnoxious slog of the game's tedious, trial-and-error platforming sections will likely try the patience of anyone who isn't looking for a blast from the past.

The game does a fine job of narratively showing the way in which a person can be broken down and made to believe anything.

It's not perfect – the in-game dialogue is well-written but rough around the edges, with plentiful typos and grammar confusion – but that's not enough to distract from Ministry of Broadcast's terrific level design and superb visuals. Nothing new here, but what it offers is, quite simply, a very, very, very, very good cinematic platformer.

If you loved Orwell's 1984 (and traditional platforming), playing Ministry of Broadcast is a good idea.

Despite looking visually attractive, Ministry of Broadcast disappoints with its repetitive gameplay mechanic and underwhelming plot execution.
