Summary

By the time you have read and looked at the Steam page, You would have seen all Vylan has to offer. It’s a minimalistic platformer against the clock (or not if you so wish). You go through levels having to trigger doors or unblocking paths to reach the exit. The levels are small but tricky, in fact, the game is quite deceiving with that and it is a nice little game. You can blow through Vylan in an hour or so and it has no reason for you to revisit it. Vylan is a game that is fine in the moment but won’t have a lasting impression.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
