GOG add another game to their lovely DRM free library, next up is the simple yet challenging platformer '140'.

My friends at GOG send me a key, and it seems to work perfectly well.

It will start on the wrong screen as usual for a lot of games if you have more than one monitor. There doesn't seem to be an options menu, so no chance of moving it to the right screen. Your only option is to hold ESC which quits the game.

This is easily one of the weirdest platformers I think I have ever played, an extremely simple graphical style so it likely won't appeal to a lot of you. Stick with it though, and it might actually surprise you.

The game has a really cool aspect to it when it comes to the music beats. Certain platforms appear or disappear along with the beats of the music, and it actually works really well. Due to the use of the music and the challenging difficulty I began to ignore the overly simple style and actually enjoy the gameplay quite a bit.

You have to collect little circle orbs and take them to the finish pad to complete each level, it sounds simple enough, but it does get increasingly challenging.

I think it's an incredibly clever game! If you already like platformers, like your music and fancy a bit of a challenge be sure to give it a crack!

Yeah, I quite liked it right up to the "spinning screen" thing at the end, which felt totally unfair to me, because it requires you to use skills that you never develop during the game. Unless you are a veteran of Super Hexagon, then I guess it would be a piece of cake.

If you're a fan of platformers, it's a good game to get, and very cheap, too!

This game is so difficult! I got it in a bundle ages ago and decided to give it a go, but holy Moses doing the levels in reverse for the extra achievements gave me nightmares...

Yes, just saw it a moment ago, as it is currently on special sale, 20% off....
Already own it though - from one of the HIBs. But to my shame I have to admit I didn't even find the time to install it so far, not to mention playing it

Great game, but I'm not too fond of the challenges at the end of each level either. I played through the normal levels but gave up on the first mirrored level when I realized I'd never get past the end of it.
