  • "Superb: A hallmark of excellence. There may be flaws, but they are negligible and won't cause massive damage to what is a supreme title."
    - Conrad Zimmerman, Destructoid
  • "Don’t let this game fool you though, it is anything but a “free ride” and the game never holds your hand from the beginning to the end."
    - Nick Ginser, THOSEGAMERS
  • "Blackhole is easily one of the best platforming puzzlers in recent memory. It’s gorgeous hand-drawn visuals, polished design and unforgiving, yet incredibly rewarding difficulty make it a game that stands above the rest and delivers a rare AAA-quality experience that most big companies can’t even live up to."
    - Sven Boonen, GAMERHEADLINES
