Feist probably might remind you of Limbo at a glance, with its shadowed aesthetic and woodland environments, but that's where the similarities end. Rather than puzzles, Feist is all about intense brawls with relentless creatures.

You're a small fuzzy being, captured by a larger species but able to escape into the hostile wilderness. At every turn, new threats lurk - vicious stinging insects, towering mole-like beasts, swarming spiders - and the only things between you and death are your agility and quick reflexes. As you leap around charging monsters, branches and pine cones become your desperately improvised weapons, giving you just enough breathing room to outmanuever and decide your next attack.

Other creatures can be temporary used as organic tools, shooting stingers at enemies or gaining extra jump height for a graceful evasion, but Feist never lets you rest easy, as you travel between its dense forest, dark caverns, and rain-drenched swamps.

Feist is available as a free download on iOS and Android, with the full game unlocked through a $3.99 in-app purchase.

“Feist might remind you of Limbo at a glance, with its blatant copying of nearly everything. However, this is where the similarities just begin. Feist is all about intense borrowing with relentless unoriginality.”
