Platform puzzle game ‘Braid‘ is the latest paid game to hit the Ubuntu Software Centre.
At first glance Braid looks like an old-school 2D side-scroller, very much in the mould of SNES or Genesis classics. But don’t be fooled – Braid is a puzzle game requiring more attention, cunning and brainpower than Sonic 2 or Golden Axe ever called for.
And whilst the brain-teasers, which require mastery of the game’s ‘Time’ manipulation mechanic, can be fiendishly difficult to solve they do give an insoluble sense of satisfaction upon completion.
Braid is available to buy in Ubuntu 10.04, 10.10 and 11.04 and is priced at $9.99.
