Title
A little masterpiece
Without a doubt one of the most fun games I ever played for speed. Within a Deep Forest is particularly compelling because it will not only be both an impressive and novel experience your first playthrough, it will also welcome you to play it over and over and over and over again. Nifflas has made some excellent indie games and I think this is the best of them all, because the gameplay is just on another level. The various types of bouncy ball physics in WADF will plead you to speed run it. I just love the distinct personality and use for each ball. The game is a bit on the metroidvania side of things; it gives you no clear indication of where to go, and you have to have unlocked the necessary balls to clear specific areas. Nifflas has designed a magnificent, bite-sized atmospheric ball game. It mends retro design ideas with more modern ones, bringing out the best in each. The main hub is beautiful and all the main areas will be a memorable experience, and some of them continue to impress me to this day. Within a Deep Forest is honestly one of the best games I have ever played. It is an innocent-looking little title, but it packs a punch of pure gameplay brilliance, and it has heart. Just beware that the game does ask you to to learn some basic competency in controlling the various balls, which might frustrate less patient gamers on the first playthrough, as that is still a learning process. If you can get past that and actually learn to play the game competently, I can assure you 100% that it is worth it to keep playing and to master it. The comfy atmosphere, music and artstyle is just yet another plus. There's even a story, which is nothing more than a cute afterthought. After all, did a game about bouncing balls really need a serious story focus?
