    December 18, 2006

    Impulse was reviewed by Out of Eight PC Game Reviews and received a fantastic rating of 6/8.

    The reviewer especially liked the following features of Impulse:
    Timing controls make it easy to make small changes, a lot of levels, solutions are provided, good physics model with multiple puzzle elements.

    Impulse takes a relatively simple concept and makes a high-quality game out of it. The game features a high number of varied puzzles, easy to learn mechanics, and multiple solutions with answers for each level, and that's all you really need for a pleasant puzzle game.

    Impulse was reviewed by Game Tunnel in the "October 2006 Indie Game Monthly Round-Up" and received a combined score of 6.8.

    A really cool and original game. [...] it does add a lot of good ideas with different bombs and a well-implemented and really useful time slider. [...] The scoring system is good and encourages you to really work out the best path.
