Gish is a one of a kind physics based 2d side scroller with a focus on an original control style, state of the art lighting and physics and totally unique game play. Using his gelatinous body Gish is able to adapt to his surroundings, becoming sticky to climb walls, slick to slide through tight cracks and heavy to break through walls, bad guys, and the like. By expanding his body at a rapid rate Gish is able to quickly project himself into the air and attach to almost anything in his path.

Fresh platform game.
this classic platform game has turned dark and twisted into Gish! Fundamental rules of movement are changed and attacking is very unique.

I recommend to all.

Kudos to the developers for trying something different in the usual sidescrolling platform game. The multiple distortions of the blob make for some nice variations. Gameplay needs a bit of work, mostly in the sluggish controls. Jumping alone takes many seconds to perform, which makes it a chore, and it's too easy to get stuck to... anything. Excellent presentation, though (especially in the blob's animations and the jazzy music).

Aren't you trying to run Gish1.3 alone? It is an update file for Gish1.2 demo.
Monitor depth must be set to millions to play this game.

I'm using OS10.3 and running this game fine. So, it is not a matter of OS compatibility.

You HAVE to PLAY this game to get it.

You move a blob about that can stick to walls or slide down holes.

I don't know if I felt more like the Terminator robot, or like "Venom" from spiderman comics.

What does the Console's CrashReporter say about it? Sounds like it could be a graphics/resolution issue they need to resolve.

This game is actually quite good! I really liked playing around with all the movement options (play the game and you'll see what I mean). It is almost an original game! It's a platform game, but you can go 'almost' anywhere! Played great at 1280x960 on my 1Ghz G4. The music is a little glitchy but only a little. Definitely worth the relatively modest download.

Ran quite decently on my 450MHz G4 w/ Rage 128 Pro. "Minimum requirements" are lower than what is posted.

A game with good style that is very innovative and fun to play.

A Sunday stroll with his lady friend Brea goes awry when a shadowy figure emerges from an open man hole and pulls Brea into the ground below. Following her cries for help Gish suddenly finds himself in the subterranean sewers of Dross, a long forgotten city filled with twisting corridors, evil traps, and some of the most demented creatures imaginable.
