  • Undoubtedly a pretty unique mix of puzzle and platforming elements, along with a sense of humor, it’s a good time but the novelty can wear off

    It’s always cool to see games that take some chances and do things their own unique way, and no matter what else you’d say about It’s a Wrap you can’t take away it's quite novel feel. Part puzzle game, part platformer (though not so much skill-based as mechanically capable), there’s nothing quite like it out there. You’ll go between playing the part of the person in charge of ensuring all of the elements of the current scene are in the proper order, timing, and sequence and then playing the part of the leading man who’ll need to use some skills in order to survive and complete the shot successfully. This will typically take a fair amount of planning and experimenting as sometimes the answers won’t be immediately obvious and you’ll need to try and fail to keep up with the elements as they kick off based on the timeline you create. It’s a challenging mix of strategy and sometimes a bit of creative inspiration to see how, given certain elements not being changeable, you need to arrange everything in a way that can set the stage for success. That said, sometimes stages can feel a bit picky about how you set things up, and it’s sometimes easy to waste time on what appears to potentially be a solution but that is doomed to fail. If you are down for a different sort of challenge, have patience, and enjoy quirky humor though it can be a good time, even if ultimately a bit repetitive in its own way.
