Will man den vorliegenden Titel mit einem einzigen Wort beschreiben, so ist "anders" wohl die beste Wahl. Dieses philosophische Traktat im Pixel-Art-Gewand muss man einfach selbst erlebt haben. Um allein die Tiefgründigkeit von "Passage" zu ergründen, bräuchte es den Umfang einer veritablen Facharbeit. Auch wenn die Grafik kaum über das Niveau des "Ur-Lemmings" hinausgeht und auch das Spielgeschehen keinerlei Action bietet, so ergibt beides zusammen, gemischt mit der vortrefflich passenden musikalischen Untermalung, ein Gesamtkunstwerk, das die Grenzen dessen, was man bis dato gesehen hat, weit hinter sich lässt. Die 200 Punkte, die berappt werden wollen, sollte man auf jeden Fall investieren, um sich dieses außergewöhnliche Werk nicht entgehen zu lassen.

Pretentious almost to the point of nausea and yet all three games achieve exactly what they set out to do: to make you think as well as merely interact.

The Jason Rohrer Anthology brings together a great selection of art games that will either be just the ticket, or go straight over your head.

Nothing here really benefits terribly from being playable on the go, and when the games themselves are available for free for hardware you most likely already have, paying an admittedly modest 200 Nintendo Points for this anthology seems like a curious proposal. However, the experiences are undoubtedly unique and worth paying a small amount for, if only to support the continued creation of medium-exploring software, as there is nothing else like it on the handheld.

I'm all for artistic-minded developers that push the boundaries of convention and dare to try new things - I just want to be entertained along the way. Is that too much to ask?
