When a young schoolboy gets stranded on a remote old planet, a unique and eccentric journey begins. His search for a way off the planet takes him through cities and castles, attics and space stations into a dreamlike yet dangerous world. Along the way, he outsmarts a variety of malicious robots bent on stopping him and, befriends unlikely allies that start to shed light on a huge conspiracy that keeps the planet mesmerized and prevents him from ever reaching home.
The Pid adventure
Pid is a platform adventure game in which the player is given a rich set of features that he must use and combine to survive in the world. A wide variety of fast paced action, puzzles and precision platforming forces the player to creatively master the tools at hand. Gameplay situations can always be solved in tons of alternative ways and the rich contrast between the different locations challenges the player to adapt to enemies that demands new strategies and methods.
Unique platforming moves
The core feature in Pid allows players to manipulate a powerful force that can be used to maneuver around the levels in thousands of unique ways. To top it off, it completely changes the way you maneuver within a 2d world. It's also used to move enemies and objects, deflect bullets, activate machinery and change level layouts. Mastering the use of this core feature will turn everything you know about platforming upside down.
Travel with a friend
In Pid, two players can experience the adventure together. In coop-mode, players are expected to truly cooperate in order to safely advance through the levels. Both are highly dependent on the other, and even if friendly cooperation is a must, there is plenty of room to wildly compete and test your retro skills against your friends.
Music in Pid
During the course of the game, players will experience a lovely and very special soundtrack composed and recorded by Retro Family - a small group of studio musicians that focuses on tailored music for games, films, dance and theater.
Most challenging platformer.winsquare2 | Oct. 6, 2014 | See all winsquare2's reviews »
Having spent nearly half a day trying to complete this game,I can honestly say that this is one of the most,if not the hardest platformer I've ever played.
The plot itself was rather fresh.The mechanics were interesting to say the least.As for graphics,the game's many exotic backgrounds always served as eye candy to me.Besides that, Pid's unique ability to allow players to use powerful items to defeat the game's many colourful bosses,was to me the best part.It made the game slightly easier but made sure that it was still challenging to the average player.
In conclusion,this a pretty good yet challenging indie game which makes use of unique game mechanics and colourful graphics.However,as far as the price goes,I would recommend getting this game on sale.

This is an awesome little game that I got for free from some sort of a giveaway. It's a unique platformer that has a lot fun challenges and high quality textures. The game has a simple but fun gameplay that sucked me in. Even though the game is awesome I still do not recommend it for a full price. There are better titles to buy at that price but I do recommend it on a discount.

This game has allot of unique ideas floating around inside it. It was a little too challenging for me though and I gave up about 1/3 of the way through it. The graphics are good, the controls are spot on and it pulls off allot of platformer elements very well. If you are into challenging indie sidscrollers, this game will suit you well.

Played this with a gamepad. Controls are responsive and exact. The graphics and sounds suit the mood. The setting is nice. Even kids can play this game until it gets too hard. Reminds me of Rochard a bit, which is a compliment. All in all, I recommend it over any mediocre indie platformer.

Pid is a very attractive game in means of graphics. By this I don't mean that the game looks realistic, but that the game has a very good artistic appeal to it. The resolution of all the textures in the game are great, and I feel like as I play there is so much artwork to be enjoyed that has been put into the game. The controls are good, GUI is not lacking, and the game includes necessary features such as being able to map controls any way you want to. The gameplay is great, however the story does not go far into depth. But in my opinion, all that matters is that this game has great gameplay, good puzzles, and an amazing atmosphere with great sound effects and graphics.
