Of course, it wouldn't be fair to talk about S: S&S EP without mentioning the sounds and songs of Jim Guthrie. For a guy who has been out of the music scene for seven years, he made one heck of a comeback. His album for the game, The Ballad of the Space Babies
, is a work of musical art. Guthrie uses lots of synthesizers to create celestial sounds that add to the looming sense of danger, excitement and fear, with honorable mentions being The Prettiest Weed, Lone Star and Little Furnace. It's recommended that you play with headphones, and you should take that recommendation to get the full experience, for your ears will be taken on a magical journey unlike any other.
The gameplay is great. In it's constituent parts, the game is one part adventure game, one part puzzle game and one part combat. The adventure game aspect has you exploring the world and finding objects to progress. The puzzle game aspect is where you find ways to awaken Sylvian Sprites to activate the Trigons. The combat aspect is where you flip your iOS device vertically to fight animals and tame the different Trigons. All of these elements fuse together very nicely and neither of them try to overshadow each other, making the game challenging and fun.
Superbrothers: Sword and Sworcery EP is one of those games that is perfect in my eyes. Not only is it funny, weird and beautiful, but it's also really fun, making it my favorite downloadable game of all time.
