Patch is a game that takes the term “platform game” to its earlier roots, using one-stage mechanics. Adopting the traditional platform features as jumping, problem solving, obstacles, and specialized gimmicks for each unique level, Patch takes the genre back to what it was in its glory days. Taking a break from the overly glitzy and super glossy graphics so prevalent in today's mass produced video games, “Patch” successfully illustrates a video game that rests simply on its laurels. It's a whimsical piece that gives the gamer a chance to conjure up all those retro feelings forgotten in the corners of high-def platforms, plus the added bonus of something most games haven't put forth in a while—a challenge. This is a game with heart; a simple concept but not simply made.
