I got stuck at one point in the game for hours which delayed this review quite a bit. Always embarrassing when that happens and there aren't any message boards or FAQs to fall back on.
A Rose in the Twilight is best described on the surface as being an undeniably bleak, somewhat charming, but consistently creative 2D puzzle platforming experience. While definitely glazed in a coat of many morbid and gory sensibilities, the game can be sometimes harsh without ever feeling unfair – and that’s a difficult balancing act to pull off.
Still, there’s no denying that A Rose in the Twilight’s story and style earn it much more praise. Rose’s past drives a tale of imprisonment that is as dark as what she must do to escape. Every memory she relives becomes a ghost that haunts her and the player alike — ultimately a much deeper, cerebral experience than other PlayStation Vita titles.
