It nails player movement, puzzles, and storytelling in games, and completely removes anything that stands in the way of these three. Gunpoint is undeniably smart, and it takes the much-appreciated risk of assuming that we are, too.90

Gunpoint juggles a handful of great, fresh ideas that it doesn't quite exploit to full potential - but it has a darn good shot at it, brief as it may be.80

However, even with the ability to choose new tactics and alter the flow of the game's plot, you'll wind up walking away from Gunpoint sooner than you'd like.
