Cool Gunpoint, an awesome puzzle platformer

Wow this game is cool. Bought it on Steam a while ago when there was a good deal on it but didn't had the time to try it. Now I've played through a few missions and am hooked.

It feels like a game taken straight from our trusty Amiga, the graphics and gameplay remind me of Benefactor and Flashback a bit, the puzzles mechanics are *so* satisfying when you're forwarding a lamp switch so the guard can't light it.

Fun fun fun!

From what I saw/read it looks interesting.

It seems like there is a demo available (not requiring Steam) at:
http://www.gunpointgame.com/

I'll try it when I can.



PS: A bit off-topic, but in one of his video for the game (the first video I stumbled upon), the author mentions his "stupide voice" (at 07:39):
[ Show youtube player ]

I don't think this is really the case, more as if he spoke a bit too quickly, starting one word before ending the previous one (in French we have a saying which means "eating one's words to describe such a way of speaking). It sometimes sounds like commercials in which they have some legal mentions they need to state and artificially speed the voice up.

Is there someone who doesn't think that after hearing his own voice played back to him?
I doubt, it's natural, cause you never hear yourself how you really sound.

If you enjoyed Gunpoint you might like Ronin which is a turn-based action platformer with a very familiar look

It's not made by Tom Francis, the creator of Gunpoint, but he knows about it: http://www.pentadact.com/2014-08-12-...npoint-ripoff/

i bought it too and indeed it's a pretty nice game.
It certainly could have been made on Amiga

upps such games are horrible

but if you guys like those, I recommend Benefactor and Lost in mine ( are the best puzzle platforms for the Amiga)

I finished them, both games features excelent music and puzzles, no modern game can beat them
