Felix works at The Ministry of Death, and he's in love with Betty The Maiden from The Ministry of Life. He believes that going to the human world as a field reaper will enable him to one day meet her, so he's taken the job of making sure people die—and taught himself to dance, in order to impress the love of his (un)life. Since Felix only moves in the shadows, he needs to tread carefully through this strange world. Luckily, reapers like Felix are able to turn the sun and shift the shadows, creating the paths necessary to navigate the land of the living. He does so to solve puzzles and make sure people die according to ministerial plans. Each level unlocks a hardcore version of itself for the motivated ministerial go-getter. You can also collect skull achievements that further unlock bonus time trials for the most resourceful employees. FEATURES: Challenge yourself to original puzzle game mechanics Experience a gruesomely sweet story and beautiful world Choose your own tunes from a selection of 10+ indie music artists on Felix‘s Walkman Collect skull achievements that unlock bonus time trials Watch Felix develop his dance moves—as created by professional dancers!

Felix the Reaper's protagonist is a joy to watch in motion, but every other part of this frustrating puzzle game fails to match that level of charm.

Felix starts dancing and, suddenly, you want to stand up and dance too. Felix the Reaper has style, and some challenging puzzles, but unfortunately the two sides never collide. Nevertheless, a solid performance by our dancing reaper (and his developers too).

Even Felix’s sweet, sweet dance moves can’t throw the game’s glaring design flaws into shadow.

Felix the Reaper is a dark romantic-comedy puzzle game that shows promise with its loads of personality, but it's held back by overly simple gameplay.
