Stonerid is a 2D platformer by indie developer Enitvare, It’s not your typical platformer, Stonerid has a interesting twist to it, players are given two parallel worlds to which they have to use cohesively in order to stop a mysterious toxic substances on Atronast Mountain. With 32 beautifully hand drawn levels filled with crazy traps and monsters making each level increasingly more difficult then the next. swamps_stonerid_5What makes Stonerid so intriguing is that it test the players recollection skills, for example one dimension will have a cliff and  below that will be filled with spikes, now if you switch to the other dimension you’ll see something similar only this time there aren’t any spikes but in the center a mushroom that launches you in to the air, so you have to jump from the cliff and time the dimension switch in order to land on the mushroom with launches you to another platform. As you play along the puzzles become harder, so expect to died alot. Stonerid is frustrating stonerid_winterland_2so casual gamers beware. With the pros comes cons and one of my biggest beefs with Stonerid is the controls, usually 2d platformers use the same control scheme as traditional Pc games with w,s,a,d, as the setup, but stonerid is different, players use the arrow keys instead which could throw some of you off at first, But then again that problem can be eliminated if you have a Xbox 360 controller you can use instead.

Although Stonrid isn’t a original game it’s still a fun and challenging game from Enitvare.
