The (Amazing) Tetrobot and Co. Review Round-up
Tetrobot and Co. has been out on Steam for 6 weeks now, so we think it’s time to talk a little bit about how the game has been received by reviewers. And you need to know that we had many difficulties communicating with the press (and our most dedicated players) while finishing the game.
That’s probably why we received very few answers from big videogames’ websites outside of France.
Anyway, the few websites, bloggers and youtubers who were curious enough to play Tetrobot and Co. and review it seem pretty happy about the game. And some of them are extremely enthusiastics, as you can read below.
Here’s a collection of quotes we extracted from the Tetrobot and Co. reviews and impressions we’ve read online.
The complete list (and links) of all reviews we’ve stumbled upon can be found at the end of this article.
“I have twice declared to any passing cats that “I AM A GENIUS!” on figuring something out. That’s a magical thing, when a puzzle game can have you feeling that great about yourself simply for figuring out what they intended you to do in the first place.(…) For around £8, this is a definite recommendation, even if you’ve found yourself growing weary of puzzle games of late. It’s fresh, cute, and bloody hard.”
“Tetrobot and Co. is the crystal meth of puzzle games. From the very first shot, the title turns your brain upside down and you already hate the guys who have synthesized this shit. Few minutes later, you taste the product a second time and feel like a superman, before feeling helpless again.(…) A diabolically clever level design that constantly renews itself.”
Gamekult – 8/10 + SELECTION
“Everything felt really slick in a way that perfectly catered to my sleepy, sickened body placing a premium on minimal movement.(…) Finding this soothing rhythm and riding it as long as you can through ingenious puzzles is the essence of Tetrobot & Co. The game may not have provided any mystical ailments, but for those jubilant hours, my mono may as well have disappeared.”
“Tetrobot & Co. was a unique game to play through. Its charming style kept me relaxed as I challenged my mind with each level.(…) If you really enjoy puzzle games then I highly suggest you give this one a try.”
Broken Cartridge – 4.5/5
“Intelligent, well done, intuitive but offering a spicy challenge, inexpensive… There really is not much to criticize Tetrobot and Co., and we can only advise you to give it a try. We are now eagerly awaiting the release of the level editor in December to extend the experience with community content.”
Factornews – 9/10
“Pedagogy is the science of rhythm, changing intensity, tempo: the art of mixing dead times with strong times, the art of repetition, of variation as a transition from one competence to another. The secret of Tetrobot is that it does this perfectly, even the fussiest expert in puzzles’ science would have nothing to complain about.(…) Tetrobot and Co. is definitely a great puzzle game.”
“Tetrobot and Co. is probably one of the most deceptive titles I have played in quite some time. On the surface it looks like little more than a cutesy puzzler that is only designed to be little more than aesthetically pleasing. While in actual fact it hides a genuinely complex, mechanically sublime, game that is constantly builds on pre existing game mechanics.(…) Quite simply it’s best feature is how perfectly distilled it is as a game, no bullshit.”
Voletic – 8/10
“We recommend Tetrobot and Co. to those who loved Blocks That Matter, to intelligent people who wants a cheap puzzle game with a lot of challenge, those who appreciate robots, those looking for a game filled with puzzles you can play for a dozen hours and those want to get surprised.”
The Shelter Network – 9/10
