В полной мере Shiftlings раскрывается только если рядом с вами сидит друг со вторым джойстиком. Нет, конечно, удовольствие можно получить и в одиночном режиме, и играя с незнакомцами по интернету. Но в первом случае вы быстро устанете бесконечно переключаться между персонажами, а во втором рискуете нарваться на неадекватного напарника и испортить себе удовольствие. Вспомните тот же Portal 2.
With its comical vibe and challenging levels, Shiftlings is a must for everyone who likes a descent puzzle platformer every now and then. The controls can be mighty frustrating at times, but playing the game in co-op is boatloads of fun and this alone makes Shiftlings worth its price.
Shiftlings is a brilliant co-op puzzle game from Norway. The game let’s the players control two characters – one small and one big – through the very well designed and often challenging maps Shiftlings offers. The players can swap size at any time, and must combine gravity and the different sizes to overcome challenges. Shiftlings is hilarious with a friend, but lose a lot of its charm and fun if you’re on your own.
Shiftlings is a fun game. It’s rare when a game can nail fart humor and also have it be completely in context. The puzzles are fun, and there is really some fantastic level design that never gets in the way of the game. Unfortunately all of this may be hard to realize when all you can see is a sometimes frustrating single player experience.
