"The guards do not shoot you. We know that no Redcoat soldier would shoot an eight year old. That’s insane. Mainly because those muskets take forever to reload." - IndieGameMag
"An American Revolution stealth platformer is actually a thing, and it looks to be a good thing." - The Void
"The game gives us the desired 2D platforming gameplay in a 3D environment with a slick corner-turning mechanic. It’s got a fresh setting, a cool premise, and a focused visual aesthetic. It’s smart and creative." - Twenty-Sided
"Smooth animations and stealth gameplay combined with one of the most famous stories of the Revolutionary War- the Midnight Ride of Paul Revere made for an interesting experience." - Just Press Start
"If you can’t spare a few minutes out of your day for this, you hate freedom!" - Department of Electronic Entertainment
"The cartoony aesthetics work almost surprisingly well in this historical, stealth-oriented platformer." - IndieGames
"It's also full of gorgeous hand-drawn 2D, which is a big plus in my book." - Gamespy
"In its current Alpha version, Children of Liberty is already great and continuing to get better." - IndieGameMag
"The 3D turning mechanic looks great and I love the lighting effects so much it’s a shame to have to blow out my candle and skulk around in the dark." - PEGReviews
"Maybe it’s our unnatural infatuation with beautiful, hand-drawn, 2D sprites that draws us to indie games, as it’s an art style often adopted by indie developers. Or perhaps it’s just because they often convey the essence of a game better than one made of a billion polys. In either case, it’s always good when a game with such an art style looks to be doing something new and fun. Enter Children of Liberty." - Armless Octopus
"I know, most of you would say that these graphics were cool 20 years ago, I can also agree, but haven't you ever got some true nostalgia of what games used to be?" - Should be Indie
"If the writing is good, and thus the characters are likeable and their plights engaging, I think this title could definitely be worth some play time." - Game Fanatics
"These days it’s really rare to see a game with such clearly handrawn sprites, and perhaps an even rarer occurance is seeing them used in a 2D platform stealth game centered around the American Revolution." - n00b Alert
