Quick Byte Review – Isolomus

Quick Byte Review – Isolomus

Isolomus is unique in many aspects but the most striking feature is easily its visuals. Presented in stop motion animation with hand sculpted plasticine, Isolomus is a gritty but charming horror adventure that can be completed in as little as 10 minutes and offers a pair of endings where it is up to the player to decide which one is the worst. Clever, unique and even unsettling, Isolomus is a one-of-a-kind experience for players on Nintendo Switch and PC.

Adopting point and click mechanics, Isolomus asks little from the player mechanically speaking. Understanding what is going on is the real challenge and the ambiguity, oddness and outright abstract happenings are a compliment to the experience, not a negative.


As the game is so brief and simplistic it’s difficult to go into much detail, Isolomus is an experience that is better to be had than read about. The unsettling madness and interpretive storytelling remains intriguing throughout the brevity of the experience.


The score is consistently ominous, and the sound effects are appropriately sharp and effective. The sheer ridiculousness, absurdity and ambiguity of Isolomus is so irresistibly enticing and more-ish, that even without understanding what is happening, the player cannot wait to see what happens next.
