Product Description

A Walk in the Dark is an action platformer where you play as Bast, a cat rushing through a dark fantasy world. You’ll be running, jumping and sliding with smooth and precise controls designed to make you feel like a cat. But it won't be easy. You never know what lies in the shadows. In this dark journey you will face strange creatures and dangerous traps.

“The stark beauty of A Walk in the Dark stands out in its own right, buttressed by the outstanding work of composer Cody Cook on the haunting, majestic soundtrack. But the gameplay’s the thing, and in that regard A Walk in the Dark does not disappoint. (…) The platforming action is intense, challenging and plentiful.” – GameZebo

“The presentation and gameplay are very well done, and I found myself playing for an hour and a half before I looked up and realized how much time had passed.”- GameCola

“A Walk in the Dark is a fun and addictive game, with good longevity, simple mechanics and challenging levels. One of the top 10 indie games of 2012.” – GameOver PT

A story driven platformer set in a dark fantasy world.  Fluid controls and animations: play as a cat, move like one.  Challenging levels set in a dark, strange and dangerous world.  Gravity inversion mechanics that will test your skills and ability to adapt to new gameplay.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun platforming. June 11, 2013
Verified Purchase
This game is a lot of fun. It is reminiscent of a mix between VVVVVV and Super Meat Boy, with a sort of Limbo artstyle where you run, jump and duck to avoid obstacles in order to get to the ending vortex of light.

There are 3 main parts of the game so far, the girl levels, the cat levels, and the race style cat levels (as of up to level 70-ish). The game is not as punishing early on (the difficulty does increase somewhat slowly), but you will get slightly frustrated at times, but not too much. The game really shines in the cat levels. The girl levels are okay, but not as interesting to me.

There are several "medal rewards" to win on each stage. For either completing the level on the first try, collecting the shiny thing, or completing the level within the par time. The medals did make me replay the levels quite a few times to try to obtain them.

The soundtrack is rather calming which helps make the game not too frustrating. The music will get pretty repetitive at times, but you mainly stay more focused on the levels. The ambient sounds however are very interesting.

There are few controls to learn. They are at times somewhat wonky (ie. wall jumping as the cat), but you will eventually just learn to figure it out or at least deal with it, but they are pretty spot on.

Overall this game is definitely worth the small asking price if you're a fan of fast paced difficult platformers. It's one of my favorite finds in the past year and I would recommend it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Decent game, old and uninspired idea. August 10, 2013
Verified Purchase
This is just another silhouette side-scroller that's meant to challenge your platforming skills. While the visuals are simplistic and charming there is nothing to this game we haven't see several times before.
