Herald Sun - Switched On - - ON THE COUCH -

Bound’s ab­stract world is one of geo­met­ric path­ways atop an un­du­lat­ing sea of cubes. Its pro­tag­o­nist is an oth­er­worldly bal­le­rina; her ev­ery step and leap an act of el­e­gance. She can also lit­er­ally dance her way through any ob­sta­cles. It’s an in­spired idea, even if it doesn’t amount to any­thing me­chan­i­cally in­ter­est­ing. While Bound is a vis­ual tri­umph, with in­trigu­ing story vi­gnettes, its plat­form­ing is more style than sub­stance.
