Antipole Press Roundup

We've collected highlights of Antipole press coverage from around the internet and posted them here.

Reviews

Nintendo Life - 8 / 10

"With its twist on platformer gameplay and ridiculous amount of content, Antipole would make a great addition to anyone’s DSiWare collection, especially fans of the genre looking for something new. The main campaign is over quick, but the myriad of other challenges and play modes makes this a title worth visiting again and again. It’s fun, challenging and bears an attractive price; this is one game that shouldn’t be passed up."

Nintendo World Report - 8.5 / 10

"Antipole is a surprisingly deep, content-heavy game that’s a steal for $5."

"Antipole is a very fun, imaginative platformer with lots of content and a great premise. DSi and 3DS owners would be silly to pass it up."

Destructoid - 8 / 10

"As stated before, Antipole reminds me in many ways of N and VVVVVV -- indie games that simplify gameplay down to its purest essence yet are still able to provide a hearty challenge. Making the game any longer would have run the risk of spreading the gravity gimmick or level variety thin, so I'm happy to say that it struck the right balance. There's nothing like solid platforming action to make those stale Nintendo Points useful again!"

Gamers Daily News - 8 / 10

"With competent platforming mechanics, a reasonable stage variety, and Antipole just being good fun in a classical style, it’s pretty easy to recommend for purchase."

Xbox Hornet - 8.5 / 10

“If you like good electronic music and/or good hard platforming; stop reading right now and get this game.”

Console Obsession - 9 / 10

"Antipole is a superb game, and one that shows that it is possible to make a great Indie Game despite the huge amount of rubbish that can be found on Xbox Live. Saturnine Games haven’t invented the mechanic of gravity manipulation, but they’ve certainly lovingly adopted it and utilized it expertly in this highly recommended game."

Armless Octopus - 4 / 5

"In Antipole, I found a well balanced platformer. During my experience I was eased into the difficulty curve like a child learning to ride a bicycle with training wheels. The smooth transition into two wheels as the difficulty gradually ramps up is what I believe most gamers will find appealing. My time with this title was well spent, and I don’t doubt that others will share my feelings towards it as well. For those of you looking for a more forgiving Megaman type game, I think you’ve come to the right place."

Indie Gamer Chick - #2 on Top 10 List

"Even taking into account those issues, Antipole is clearly one of the best games on the marketplace. It strips out the bullshit and leaves us with innovative platforming at it’s very core. It features good graphics and a really inspired soundtrack. The concept is well realized, never being boring or tedious. And there’s some awesome gaming homages in here, like a boss fight that will be familiar to fans of Super Metroid."

The Indie Mine - 4 / 5

"It would’ve been very easy for the developers to simply reuse the featured gravity-altering device in repetitive ways and try to cash in on what could’ve been a gimmick. Instead, Antipole blends a little bit of platforming with a varied puzzle structure in a fun and rewarding way. It really makes you feel like you’ve accomplished something when you finally figure out the trick to progressing past a difficult area."
