An inventive puzzle game that's too short and easy to recommend—worthwhile only for the novelty of its concept

Life Goes On is a great, morbid puzzler that reminds you that there is no victory without sacrifice.

Life Goes On might not start with the most mindblowing hook, but the idea is solid and Infinite Monkeys develops it well. By constantly adding new tricks into its repertoire and not dragging itself out unnecessarily, it maintains a good quality throughout. Puzzle difficulty ranges from easy to medium-hard; it rarely gets diabolically difficult, and when it does it is only when completing optional objectives. Although it is not particularly nice to look at, the underlying gameplay is worthwhile for any puzzle platformer enthusiast.

Life Goes On is an ingenious puzzle game that puts a whole new spin on dying in video games.  Sadly its' biggest downfall is the fact that the game is on the short and easy side, but if you're trying to get every achievement and medal in the game, you can squeeze out a few more hours from this one.  If you don't mind all of that, I definitely recommend picking this one up.

It's not every day you play a video game that changes how you look at the format itself. Infinite Monkeys, with its never-ending team of sacrificial knights, not only pulls it off but does so with style in Life Goes On.

An inventive and outlandish puzzler that executes with bloodthirstily aplomb.

Life Goes On could use a last pass in a aspects of its controls, but the puzzle design is what makes the game work so well. Spiked conveyor belts carry bodies to pressure switches, but only if you can figure out how to turn off the flamethrowers to avoid incineration.

Cutesy and colourful, Life Goes On takes a core concept from most games, flips it, and embeds it in an environment with reciprocating elements. The result is an engaging puzzle platformer that delights more than it frustrates. The ending credits sequence is also one of the most charming things I've seen this year.

In the end I can't help but feel like this game is out of place on a platform like the PC, and would instead would fare much better on a mobile device on the App Store or Google Play Store. Sure on such platforms, recognition isn't as high or valued as on a popular game clients like Steam, but it's the shorter game sessions that really made this game shine. Life Goes On still warrants an enjoyable experience on PC platforms and provides the occasional challenge to carry on the unique gameplay. It is definitely worth a pickup if you're of the puzzle craving variety of gamers, beyond that…it does more than the average puzzle platformer, but cannot sustain itself over longer play sessions.

While this would be a strong game on mobile, the lack of storyline or replayability mar an otherwise great game about mass knight suicide.
