Braid: an interesting video game
I am playing this on Steam via PC, but I know that this game will play much better on console than a keyboard. What makes this game so entertaining is the Time Bending stuff. You can speed, slow and stop time in the game play. You will never truly die because you can reset your mistakes. So it gives platform gaming a completely different take because you have to see patterns in a completely different way.
I had to play this for a class, but I am happy that I did.
It has tributes to other platform games such as Mario Brothers and Donkey Kong. You have to really look for those. Plus there are hidden things in the backgrounds of the levels that are interesting to look at. It is but isn't a regular platform game.
The gameplay can be taxing at times.
The game is pretty look at and the music is lovely. But, I don’t like the true meaning behind the game. It is a far stretch for me. I won’t give it away, but that’s the only problem I had. I also liked the twist ending too.
Yes, they went there with that funny Mario Brothers joke.
