There’s a great puzzle game in here somewhere. However, without the content to back it up, that greatness never comes to pass. I want to find new and creative ways to manipulate gravity to solve harder and more unique puzzles. I want levels with more gimmicks that I need to figure out. Instead, Etherborn shows off a few clever ideas, then promptly ends without exploring them to the extent that they could be.
Apart from the slightly more challenging platforming puzzles, however, the electrifying thrill of discovery has largely subsided--you've already found all the secrets, after all--and there's little incentive to revisit it. By the end, even the allure of these small worlds isn't enough to make you return, with only the yearning for more remaining in its wake.
Etherborn is a charming game with great level design and soundtrack. While the story and character were rather flat the gameplay more than made up for it. A simple puzzle game at heart the main premises of perspective and gravity control was used to great effect. Etherborn is a rather short game and the levels don’t offer much replayability. I certainly enjoyed my time with Etherborn, but I would have liked to have a reason to return.
