This is a game that will have you thinking about how intense, perplexing, and perfect it was for days. Like a tiny mouse says early in the game -- "the harder the victory, the greater the joy of success".

1001 Spikes é uma das melhores propostas dentro do género e quem procura um jogo de dificuldade elevada e desafio garantido pode ir de imediato dar um saltinho à eShop. Os menos habituados a estas andanças podem desenvolver alguma frustração nos níveis avançados e perder a vontade de jogar. Tem muita variedade de modos de jogo, várias personagens com habilidades diferentes, multijogador divertido e toda uma apresentação bem trabalhada. Uma aventura muito recomendada.

1001 Spikes es ese plato de lentejas que de pequeño te daba repelús y que ahora te comerías todas las semanas. Es muy difícil y en ocasiones desesperante pero su diseño de niveles y la sensación de gratificación que siente el jugador al atravesar sus diferentes fases convierten esta pesadilla en un plato que te acabas comiendo a gusto.

The frustrating lack of off-TV play aside, 1001 Spikes is a spirited, fun title that exemplifies the creative indie spirit that is permeating the eShop. With tons of unlockables, several distinct game modes and a charming presentation, 1001 Spikes is highly recommended. Just be sure to do some yoga and go to your zen place — you don't want to rage-quit your GamePad at the television after that 800th death.

Not to be outdone by the PS4 version, the Wii U edition comes with its own custom arcade-mode skin for Aban: the Mario-inspired Mr. Video Game, which comes complete with appropriate music and a fireball attack.

The sheer volume of content on offer here is quite impressive, as is the presentation. The graphics and music feel authentically 8-bit, and even the Ninja Gaiden-style cutscenes present a story that adds an appealing texture to things. Those patient enough to tolerate 1001 Spikes’ punishing design sensibilities should find a valuable treasure beneath its prickly exterior.

If you’re the type of gamer that thrives from overcoming cheap deaths and surprise traps, then 1001 Spikes might be for you. This retro stylized platformer challenges you with completing it in 1001 lives and then chips that total away using cleverly disguised spike traps and dart spitting statues that you didn’t even know were there. Still, overcoming its many perils is rewarding, and the many arcade modes that can be unlocked allow support for up to four players. There’s also an entire roster of characters to be found, many inspired from famous video games from the NES era. This game is worth 1001 recommendations, but only if you’re up to the challenge.
