Review: Saira

As soon as I opened the game and played the first planet, I knew that Nifflas had done it again. The game clearly demonstrates his love for environmental, calm landscapes combined with a frustrating challenge or platforming puzzle every once in a while.

The game's physics are nice, and the movement of the character is smooth. The puzzles increase in difficulty at a manageable speed, and the opening of several windows within the game adds that extra "shazam" that nifflas is so quick to include in his games. The platforming challenges work well, but they are definitely not for the amateur gamer. The only thing that really stood out to me as being wrong was MAJOR lag in Saira's ship, but it doesn't take a Nifflas fan to overlook that.

It's easy to tell that Nifflas has stepped it up a notch when it comes to graphics and sprites. You can look at a screenshot of this game, and it looks amazing, but a still picture can't even come close to embodying what you see on the screen. They say a picture's worth a thousand words, but this game is worth a billion pictures!

As always, Nifflas never fails to deliver when it comes to sound effects. His method of "play the most calming music right at the most frustrating parts" works like a charm. However, I disliked the music in the space station and other technological areas. It seemed like, sometimes, there would be just random beeps and buzzes that annoyed the heck out of me. Am I forgetting anything... Oh yeah, the radio. THE GAME HAS A FRICKING RADIO. Go check it out.

The puzzles posed by the game keep it going on for a long time, even for experienced gamers. Most of Nifflas's games so far feature several secrets. I haven;t found the secrets of Saira yet, but I'm sure they're out there...

Being a die-hard Nifflas fan, when I decided to review this game, I promised myself to give it a fair rating, no matter what. What I saw would be what he got. That being said, THE GAME WAS INCREDIBLE. Nothing more can be said. If you have finished reading this review, you now have no excuse not to go and download it right now. I'm not kidding. This is MMF history in the making, and I would give it 50 out of 10 if I could.
