–Mike Jackson,

“Whether bat-shepherding, banana-rolling or bee-fleeing, each task is obscure enough to warrant a eureka moment and physically exerting enough to serve as a decent twitch challenge.”


And Yet It Moves was developed by Broken Rules, a small independent games company from Vienna, Austria. It was a student project that got featured at the Independent Games Festival and the IndieCade and then turned into a full-fledged game.

Version 1.1.3
Review by martin doudoroff

Outstanding, gorgeous, delightful puzzle game - Like most instant classics, this game succeeds at a number of levels. Fundamentally, there’s the obligatory piece of gameplay innovation: in this case, it’s a physics simulation where the entire world can be tilted backwards and forwards in 90-degree increments while preserving the momentum of the player character in screen space. This procedure takes some getting used to, and growing adept at it is the primary challenge of the game. Next, there's the scenario design, which here is imaginative (devilishly clever in about 5-6 instances), refined, and follows a mostly reasonable progression. Finally, there’s the equally original aesthetic expressed through gorgeous graphics the like you’ve never seen before and backed up with lovely atmospheric sound design. Bonus points for one of the greatest end credit sequences of all time. Great taste. Great game.

Review by maguerosinc

This Isn - …and that can be a good or bad thing. There are minimal enemies and obstacles, just the character and the scenery. This can be a bit repetitive; however, the continual change of scenery/environments makes it somewhat fresh. The graphics are excellent. I love the mixture of photographs and cartoon: it really works. But the gameplay, after the preliminary thrill of having the power to rotate the environment wears off, it a bit limited. You basically feel like the character just has to walk from the beginning to the end by turning the world to make walls become floors. Try it. The last levels are very strange (in a good way) and they are a decent challenge.
