Brutal schwerer 2D-Plattformer mit skurrilem Setting, der sich vornehmlich an Super-Meat-Boy-Fans richtet.

Höllisch schwerer 2D-Hüpfer mit Kirbys dunklem Zwilling – viele Levels und Sammelgegenstände warten.

The End is Nigh is definitely not a game for everyone. Just like Super Meat Boy before it, it will infuriate you, it will frustrate you, it will make you want to split your Switch in half in anger. Then again, it will make you come back for more. Its sense of humor, perfect controls and its superb level design are more than enough to engage you for hours. One of the most interesting indie platformers released in the past few years, The End is Nigh is a true testament to level design and pixel perfect controller precision.
Nintendo Life (Dec 12, 2017)
There’s no doubt about it - The End Is Nigh delivers excellent platforming. It’s a manageable challenge from start to finish, and a game that becomes more and more enjoyable as you slowly adapt to its seemingly unforgiving design. At the same time you’ll never feel completely unstoppable like you would in other notable platform titles. It keeps you on your toes from start to finish and has a balance few other games associated with this genre manage to achieve. Where The End Is Nigh falls short is the fact it doesn't expand a great deal on the initial foundations laid by Super Meat Boy many years ago.
Switch Player (Dec 18, 2017)
Like a spiritual successor to Super Meat Boy, The End is Nigh takes form as a similar 2D side scrolling platform game. By adding an interconnected world to the mix, it encourages exploration, while still delivering that same hardcore and challenging experience.

If Super Meat Boy is Edmund McMillen's gold medal then The End Is Nigh receives a bronze at best. With repetitive gameplay and unintuitive progression, you won't be missing out on much by not playing this 2D platformer.
