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.
The art and story are nice, but the controls are too frustrating, often just to sluggish, resulting in a death and needing to replay a section, which wouldn't be so bad if waiting and careful timing wasn't such an important part of many sections. This makes replaying even short sections quickly feel tedious. In summary, if you're looking for a nice looking, long and hard (that's what she said) game, this is the one for you.
For an indie game at this price, Pid is surprisingly deep, and full of content. A received it free a while ago, and been playing it on and off again ever since. If you like platformers, that requires you to use your brain, and not just your thumbs, this one is for you.
This game intrigued me first off with its beautiful landscapes, but caught my attention a little later on with its amazing gameplay. The puzzles are hard but do-able. In that sense, when it is solved you get a warm feeling that you did something hard which is always welcomed
Pid is an excellent platformer, with a great gameplay. Is it an easy game? No. There are some tricky moments. Who will regret to face some challenge? Even if you re blocked at some point you will be able to find some walk troughs for helping you. Some levels are really amazing. The game is beautiful, the soundtrack too. Price: 10 $? Maybe not, but under 3 $ Pid is a must have.
PID is an interesting, entertaining and sometimes challenging platformer game. It's a game, which exceeded my expectations in many ways. I get it when it was free and wasn't expecting anything good. But when I tried it I was fascinated by its lovely graphic design and interesting gameplay. I recommend playing this game in coop - I found the cooperative gameplay really entertaining. I've rarely had such fun in a platformer game. Sometimes it gets a little frustrating when you can't figure out a certain puzzle or when you're stuck somewhere, but when you share your gameplay experience with someone it's always funny. The game keeps changing a lot - graphically and in terms of gameplay - you'll never do the same thing twice. The story is good and keeps you interested. Although I got the game when it was free I'd definitely buy it if I knew how good it was. So, yes, I recommend getting this game, it's fun.
