In The Shadow Of Shadow Of The Colossus

TheBlackBandit, quite impressed, pointed us in the direction of this free platformer. Heir is clearly inspired by - but, I stress, not anywhere in the league of - the Team Ico's critical colossus, but in 2D and without having to ride the annoyingly wonky horse through that fucking forest or having to deal with Edge's equivalents of John Walker boo-hooing over it whenever it's mentioned. The move to 2D actually immediately moves it closer to Prince of Persia, which - for me - sits at the head of this particular family tree.. Its three levels are a stylish example of the genre. It'll be a fine way to start the week.
