    It's pretty good, but it's wayyyy too short. I'm on the 2nd last world and have only been playing for an hour and a half... Not worth $15. I'd pay half that for a game of this length. I'm only missing a couple puzzle pieces from the previous world so I can easily go back and get them, not taking that much longer [​IMG]

    i'm finding some puzzles really hard to crack. I think its a good sign to other indie developers out there tho.

    No, what you mean is, if you have a LOT of points floating around, grab this game.

    However, this game is quite good and is very much worth the 1200 MS points required to grab this gem of a game.

    1200 is steep price... but I think this game is worth while. Such a unique style of puzzle platforming gameplay... they really thought of all the great element ideas. And great art style... i really love the look of the game.

    Yea, tried out (and beat) the demo at a friend's house.

    Unfortunately, I've played a few games that use the "Time-Altering Hook" so nothing seemed groundbreaking here. Nothing new really wow'd me in a sense to actually consider plunking down serious cash for it.

    Although, I must say that one level in the demo in which every time you walk forward the whole level reverses on you was quite fun. I'm gonna go ahead and give Braid the benefit of the doubt here and say that the game is 100 times more fun than the demo...? [​IMG]

    The story and ending really makes you think about what it all means.

    In actuality, it would shock you to discover what the game is actually about [​IMG]

    Hey, Portal lasted an hour and half and it was like twenty bucks (PC version).

    Games that extend playtime by forcing you to backtrack, or create unnecessarily complex maze, or frequent random encounters with super long loading/intro sequence are worse than games that have straightforward map design and concise.

    Does anyone know where I can download the demo version?
    (I want to give download links to someone to download it for me and then burn and run it on my 360)

    Really a great game, i spend many hours of fun with it. Getting the speedrun achivement was a real pain in the ass [​IMG]
    Getting all the hidden stars was even MORE pain. I think, an achivement for getting all the hidden stars would have been
    more of a challenge. Sad, sad. But still a great game with a story, that let you think about it afterwards.
