"Hands down, Another Perspective is a great title with a great hook. For me it was the perfect blend of simple but not bland, challenging yet not frustrating." - Enemyslime.com

Another Perspective is a puzzle platformer following the very confusing adventure / slow existential meltdown of someone looking for something that they don't remember.
This person(?) has the power to swap minds with what appears to be other versions of himself who all see the world in different ways. Where one pair of eyes sees a bottomless pit, another might not. Where one sees a locked door, another sees a key. To change perspective is to change reality!
Combining these "realities" allows him to progress - or to at least do something that resembles progress - however this new found power leaves him deeply confused. Who is he? Why does he have this super power that doesn't make any sense? If he's swapping between bodies which body is really his? Why does he keep having to pick up keys and unlock doors? Where is he going? Is he even going anywhere? Does he even exist? What is he looking for?
The answers to some, all and none of these questions will be probably definitely not be maybe found by playing the game.

This game is quite good. It is a rather simple puzzle platformer, in which you switch between clones of the main character to see things from different perspectives, and then get to the goal of each level. The game has a pretty good narrative, which can get a bit confusing if you are not paying much attention to what is being said. It all changes depending on which clone you are playing as at the moment, which means, each clone has its own perspective, both on their way of thinking and the level designs. The soundtrack is great, although I did not find it memorable. Puzzles are quite easy, but there were a few that got quite frustrating because I was dying repeatedly due to my own mistakes. Get it if you see it on sale, Another Perspective can be beaten in around an hour or so.

Playing Another Perspective remind me of another indie platformer game, Braid. Another Perspective looks simply, and it is. There aren't any superb graphics, but simply platformers are good in my opinion. As for the music, there aren't many thing to hear, but it doesn't mean that a bad thing. For game like this, it really fits. What's really interesting in this game are puzzles and narration. Both of these thing make you thinks about few things, not only how to beat it to next level. It's a short game, but have some replayability. There is an achievement for beating this game in 12 minutes but trust, you won't be able to do that even after many times finishing games. If you are looking for quite unique experience, you can try this game.
