"Teleglitch is one of those rare few games that gets everything it attempts to do right. The oppressive atmosphere, crafting system, glitchy visuals, and careful combat are all done extremely well. The only negative thing that can be said for it is that it’s unforgiving." - Gamefront.com
"Teleglitch is a harsh mistress, but the cruelest lessons are often the ones that truly stick with us." - Joystiq.com
In a cold, dark future dominated by mega-corporations, a small lonely planet on the edge of habitable space is the site of a shadowy research facility specializing in necrotic tissue reactivation. You are a scientist who has suddenly awoken to the realization that you are the lone survivor. The rest of the facility’s personnel have all been killed – micro-chipped and reactivated as combatants by the facility’s central processing AI.

I got this recommended to me by a few friends. There are so many great aspects to this game. Inventory management makes it a must to be stingy with your ammo, the gameplay can be slow as a crawl then shoot up to running for your life in mere seconds, and the maps are random-generated from pre-set pieces each time you play to spice things up a bit. The variations in weapons and enemies means you have to make split-second thoughts on what to use. Also, nailguns.
If you're into roguelikes this one is worth a go. I find it far more difficult than titles such as Nuclear Throne, and there's a crafting aspect that adds a bit of variety. What makes it different from other roguelikes is the atmosphere though - the unmanned space station is very creepy, and it feels like playing Dead Space or Manhunt at times.
This game is HARD. But that doesn't deter from its environment, interesting story, and atmosphere that this fun top-down "twin-stick" shooter. The story is to be pieced together from logs that you can find scattered throughout the world. It spins a tale of experiments gone awry that cause some sort of zombie-rific mutation. You, as the lone surviving scientist, have to find a way to get OUT. In order to do this, you'll find weapons and items for crafting throughout the world, but you always have your lucky #daggerdaggerdagger to stab the zombies and other creatures with. Navigating the environment can be difficult and, at times, can be the biggest killer as you try and discover new things you may just run into a portal-o'-death, or an ambush of monsters and zombies. However, I feel that the sense of misdirection and loss adds to the oppressive GET ME OUT style environment. Overall, it's a very enjoyable and quick sort of game (I say quick because I die fast and then give up for a spell). The environment and atmosphere that this little game manages to paint is pretty impressive on its own, and the controls feel great and responsive as well. Recommended if you're looking for a quick little something to struggle against.
The crafting system is nice, I like the art style and the shooting is pretty nice too. But the game is very hard, and there's not much ammo lying around. Using your fists works but it's not very effective. I have never made it very far in this game, but what I have played has been fun.
I'm not entirely sure why, but this game has been one of most entertaining to me on steam in recent memory. The graphics may seem a little underwhelming, but combined with the smoothness of the game, the richness of the gameplay, the great soundtrack, and the level of difficulty and challenge involved in playing this little action adventure, this game finds a way into almost anyone's heart. I should point out that the graphics engine fits the game's purpose perfectly, yes I know, I just wrote it didn't look like much, but it is just right, the pixel art seems to compliment everything else in creating the perfect mix for a very endearing atmosphere, that keeps bringing you back for more every time you die - and yeah, I died a LOT!
