A useful counterpoint here is Playdead’s Inside. Regardless of whether you enjoy its tone, it uses visual and mechanical design to deliver a weird bleakly comic story, the puzzles are engaging and the animations elevate the nameless character to a real presence. Planet Alpha struggles on all counts, coming off as loose instead of tight, vague instead of purposeful, and dull instead of compelling.
Ultimately, Planet Alpha is a visual feast, featuring a fantastical sci-fi world and backed by a hauntingly atmospheric musical score. While it’s an old tale that treads over familiar ground, there’s plenty of new tricks to make it a rewarding playthrough.
Planet Alpha isn't the most original platforming game, but it's definitely one of the most good looking sci-fi worlds we've explored recently. It looks the part and feels immersive, but it's weighed down a little by clunky controls, the design of the main character, and some early pacing issues. That said, you'll enjoy your evenings spent with the game, and the puzzles should give you enough variety and challenge that you'll likely think it was a trip worth taking.
