please don't touch anything

Please, don’t touch anything is a puzzle game that got updated and was developed by ‘Four Quarters‘. It is coming out the 8th of February on the Xbox One but already on Nintendo Switch. The update has stepped up the quality of the game. Let’s take a look.

Please, don’t touch anything has a very simple story for a initially simple game. Basically the player is covering for a fellow colleague who went of to the bathroom. This room you are in has an interesting set up. There’s a monitor screen that’s constantly displaying a city. It’s live by the way, so what you see is actually happening there and then. Also in front of you is a big red button and you are given one simple instruction… do not touch anything! Yep, we can see it… you’ve already decided you are going to touch everything. 

please don't touch anything

So yes, Please, don’t touch anything sounds like a simple boring game and you aren’t suppose to wait until your colleague comes back. Remember, this is a puzzle game. The red button has a function. Pressing it once may not do anything but pressing multiple times might. Also around the console in front of you are hidden secrets like more buttons, switches, hidden compartments, tools and much more. Players will need to use their heads to figure all these secrets as activating and doing certain things will trigger certain events, known as the endings. For example in one ending a UFO comes down and destroyed the city. In another ending it’s a giant monster.

Thanks to the update that Please, don’t touch anything got, things have been changed and improved around here. For starters, everything is 3D now, meaning you can look around the room itself. Check out the corners and see if their are clues or something to take notice off. Oh and the endings… there are now more than 30 different endings. Think you can find them all? So yes, get Botton pushing crazy as players will need to press everywhere. 

please don't touch anything

The graphics in Please, don’t touch anything have been improved and the endings have better visual effects and look much better than before. Sounds are better as well, so listen out for them. Yes Please, don’t touch anything can be played with virtual reality. So if you have a Oculus rift then you  get into the game and push that Button yourself.

We checked out some gameplay and it’s how we remember it from the original Please, don’t touch anything and it’s basically the same but just improved. There isn’t really much to say about the gameplay as it is simple. Touch everything, find clues and discover the endings. No enemies, no timer or anything like that. It’s simply a test. So you are either a gamer who likes this kind of stuff or you don’t.

Overall, Please, don’t touch anything, is a clever game and definitely requires patience and very good puzzle solving skills. The update even added an introduction. The developers ‘Four Quarters’ did an alright job with this game. We at X35 Earthwalker aren’t looking forward to this game but we know there are some fans who would want this. Now Please, don’t touch anything may have many puzzles but what’s not puzzling is… the ‘Earth Walk!’

Neonwall

Neonwall is a action puzzle game developed by ‘Norain Games‘. It is already out on both Nintendo Switch and PC but coming to Xbox One on the 14th of September 2018. This game certainly knows how to stand out just by looks alone. Is it any good?

Neonwall is all about timing, concentration and focus. There are lots of obstacles and many puzzles. The aim of the game really is to get the ball through to the end but the faster you can do it, the better. Players can interact with the ball by using the two lasers, which are controlled by using the joysticks. These lasers can move blocks allowing for a clear path or path adjustments. You can also break blocks too. mostly importantly though is the ability to change the colour of the ball.

Neonwall

Colours in Neonwall is the most important thing. For starters the ball moves faster when it’s moving on blocks of the same colour. The ball can even open doors only if it’s the same colour as the door. Also, lasers can only interact with elements of the same colour! So colour exchanging is, as we said before, very important. So basically all Neonwall is asking players to do is manage the three colours and exchange them between the lasers and the ball to successfully get the ball to the end.

Neonwall does have VR support. so the HTC Vive, Oculus rift and Windows Mixed reality. It’s said to be more immersive with one of these. They always say that. 

We checked out some gameplay and it definitely looks like a puzzle. The ball is moving and you have to look ahead to see what needs to be done and then make sure the right colours and used. Move this platform, open that, jump across the gap etc. It looks like things can get a bit chaotic later on. This game is definitely unique and we like that. 

Overall Neonwall looks like a very cool game. The graphics are excellent for it’s neon style and we like the level designs. Players need to be prepared. The developers ‘Norain Games’ did an excellent job with this game. We at X35 Earthwalker will look to see how Xbox One gamers receive this. Now all the colours and puzzles may be a lot but it’s nothing compared to… the ‘Earth Walk!’

Lumines Remastered

Lumines Remastered is a music puzzle game developed by ‘Resonair‘. Lumines Remastered came out the 26th of June on the Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PS4 and PC. This game is the new and improved version of the original which came out in 2004. More blocks anyone? Let’s take a look.

Lumines Remastered is one of those games for casual gaming. Having a good time and relaxing. In Lumies Remastered players must drop in and align blocks of 4, which have different colours, normally 2 different colours. Once a combo of the same colour has been formed, it will remain there until the timeline sweeps across. It’s all about getting things ready in time.

Lumines Remastered

To get even more points, you just have to add more of the same colour to the combo. Then there are multipliers which are only gained through having combos that consist of 4 or more quads in a single pass of the timeline. Sounds simple right. Right?

There are over 40 skins with different atmospheres from more relaxed and chill to something faster with a beat.  More can be unlocked in another mode. 2 Player local play is available and have a block off or make it your mission to climb the online leaderboards.

Now Lumines Remastered. Is basically just a superior version. There is even vibration settings which allow for more ways to play such as rhythm & blocks, blocks only and no vibration. Lumines remastered is all about working to the music.

We checked out some gameplay and we aren’t impressed. Lumines was obviously very popular with many gamers but we don’t exactly see why. That doesn’t mean it’s a bad game, not at all. It’s just definitely not our thing. It’s all in HD and 4K so be prepared for that. Better and more music with more going on than before. Shuffle mode is new and it’s basically the levels you have unlocked but you go through them in random order. Endless mode is still there.

Overall this is a improved version and any fans who loved the original would love Lumines remastered definitely. The graphics and music are great. The developers ‘Resonair’ did a great job. Once again this isn’t our thing out thing and so we at X35 Earthwalker aren’t going to check this out. Now Lumines may have gotten remastered but one thing that doesn’t need remastering is… the ‘Earth Walk!’

Shift Quantum

Shift Quantum is a new action puzzle platformer game developed by ‘Fishing Cactus‘. It’s coming out the 29th of May on the Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PS4 and PC but coming out the 30th of May in the United Kingdom. This game is expected to really engage player’s brains. Let’s take a look.

The story of Shift Quantum isn’t exactly that clear or written well at all but basically someone called Axon Vertigo promises to bring about better life quality for everyone using the Shift Quantum program. All puzzles in this game are meant to force players to think in different and specific ways. The players task is to solve puzzles. There’s more. You must transform barriers into escape routes by creating negative space. Get to the exit to get exactly what you’ve been promised by Axon Vertigo… happiness.

Shift Quantum

Players need to keep an eye on the whole environment and Shift Quantum world. This is because you have the option to twist the environment and shift the world. Make use of all special gameplay blocks to overcome obstacles and get to the exit to find the happiness you have been searching for and promised by Axon Vertigo. 

Players also have the opportunity to create their own levels as well. Adding the different blocks and areas that change gravity direction and off course making obvious places that can only be traversed through the shifting mechanic.

Since it’s also a puzzle game, expect the difficulty to be amped up. players will have to stop and think how they can complete the level, what is needed and what order should these things be done. Eventually timing will be brought into the equation too.

We checked out some gameplay of Shift Quantum and it does look very cool. The animations are good. The level designs are excellent. The negative space mechanic looks awesome as your character literally gos through the stage to the other side and things flip around the the colours become negative. The black and white visuals work well with this game. The puzzles are certainly worthy of the name ‘puzzles’. Shift Quantum comes of as very unique.

Overall Shift Quantum is a very cool game. The graphics and visuals are very good. The sounds are just good. The level designs are excellent. The developers ‘Fishing Cactus’ did an excellent job with this game. We at X35 Earthwalker look forward to seeing how other gamers take to this game.

The Long Reach

The Long Reach is a new puzzle adventure game developed by ‘Painted Black Games’. This game is coming out March 14th on the Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch, Mac and PC. Games like this are only for a specific category of gamers. Let’s take a look.

Many have compared The Long Reach to ‘Lone Survivor‘ but we don’t see that much. If anything it’s more comparable to ‘In the Shadows’ but whatever. Basically it’s pixel style graphics in a big world though. Big in terms of what is going on. Some have classed it as a horror game. We can see that too but wouldn’t say that either. It just seems like another game where you go around, talk to characters and collect stuff. The setting though is different.

In The Long Reach, the game takes place in new hampshire in the town of baervox. You play normal people in a regular town. Things; however get real bad because of scientists. Once again it’s the scientists. They always ruin everything. Basically they were working on something called experience-sharing program. Now people have nightmares and dreams without being asleep. This is crazy and creative of The Long Reach. Just imagine this. Kids running if fear because they see Freddy Fazbear from Five Nights at Freddy’s chasing them in broad daylight. Or old war veterans grabbing their guns again because they see the enemy army soldiers coming around. Or Teenagers chasing after their favourite celebrities. It will turn the whole town crazy, which is exactly what happened. Many went insane.

The Long Reach

Now the game does encourage you to try and escape and save yourself but you can try to help fix the problem going on. You will need to talk to everyone as much as you can to get information from them but be careful. Some people aren’t exactly as sane as you think you are. Some might try to attack you because if they are having a nightmare they may see you as a wretch from Gears of war, so may try to kill you with a crowbar or something. So whenever you are in trouble just run. Seriously, just run! Otherwise they won’t think twice about it.

Most importantly, especially if you want to make progress in terms of fixing the problem and solving puzzles, you need to collect everything. Every item you find may come in handy in the future. So exploration is incredibly important. Be that player who sees something shiny in the trash bin.

We checked out some gameplay and we can it’s just like some of the others. Run back and forth find stuff, see something is it danger then act accordingly. It isn’t anything special from what we have seen but it is done very well. The set up is good, the sounds are very good and the whole world looks good too. The mysteries within The Long Reach is the games best feature here. What is real? What is a nightmare? Who are you really? What’s going on? why are there giant tentacles like that of a monster? So much going on.

Overall this game this is good but again only for certain gamers. Many will not like this game at all or not get into it. It’s something you just have to check out for yourself. It’s easy to know what this game is about and sort of what it has to offer. The developers ‘Painted Black Games’, did a good job with this game. We at X35 Earthwalker aren’t interested at all but other gamers may certainly be. Seriously we encourage all to check it out for themselves. Now some may be reaching for this game but no one can reach… the ‘Earth Walk!’

Hello Neighbor

Hello Neighbor was one of those games that many looked forward to. It had a lot of hype and man was there a lot of content on youtube concerning this game from CoryxKenshin, Markiplier, 8-Bit Ryan and more. There was quite a lot theories being made as well. Even Game Theory got in on the action. There were multiple betas for the gamers to play and some alphas. The developers Dynamic Pixels truly did work hard on this game. We are going to talk about the disappointing stuff about Hello Neighbor. The stuff we didn’t like.

Now the difficulty of puzzles and the amount of thinking increases drastically with each Act. The sad part is that there is only three acts. We at X35 Earthwalker and some others thought there would be more. The game is actually quite short if you cut out all the time you spend on puzzles. It makes us wonder if there will be DLC in the future maybe. We actually expected a bigger adventure, more missions etc but we aren’t the developers. Now off course there were many glitches and issues but they weren’t game stopping glitches. The most annoying one is when you walk through items or boxes and then you get launched into the air for some reason. The funniest one was when X35 Earthwalker threw a box at a window to break the window but instead the box went right through the window with breaking the glass. We caught that on livestream.

There isa seed in Act three that you can plant and then it grows into large tree which is suppose to give us an item when fully grown. Sounds great but the problem is that the tree takes forever to grow. It has been stated that it takes 3 actual hours to grow completely. Three hours! That’s stupid. We ain’t got that kind of time to chill in Hello Neighbor. Now maybe Dynamic Pixels thought that if players found the seed and planted it the tree would have grown by the time they get through all the puzzle solving, searching, hiding and running away from the Neighbor. This isn’t guaranteed as the seed was pretty much the last thing X35 Earthwalker found so that means he had nothing to do while waiting for the tree to grow. It’s suppose to give a golden apple we believe. So didn’t like the tree mechanic at all.

Act three was ruined. This is because Act three is exactly the same as the beta that the developers released for gamers to play. This means that a bunch of people already knew what to do because either they played that version of the beta or they watched CoryxKenshin and Markiplier play through the whole thing. We think this is a fail on the developers side. We get that maybe they wanted to make sure everything worked properly but you can’t release an the whole actual level of Act 3 of the game as a beta. The thing is, this didn’t have much effect on us because we never played the beta so it was sort of new for us. Which is why we spent a long time trying to solve everything and do every puzzle bit by bit.

Next is how cryptic Act 3 is. Now we know that the puzzles do force gamers to slow it down and start thinking but this was too much for many. For starters unlike Act 1 we have no clues of what to do. The only ones who do know played the Hello Neighbor beta or watched it. Finding the mannequins was a hard task. One of them you can’r reach until you get a code which must be inputted through buttons on the wall. You need binoculars to see far and find the code yourself. Another mannequin is hiding in the highest room of the house directly in front of you from the front of your house. How was anyone suppose to know that one is up there? You can’t see the mannequin through the window. You need to firstly use an object and super throw something to smash open the window. Then get to the top of the house and jump of with an umbrella (which surprisingly can support our weight) and glide through the window to the grab the mannequin. Finding the four cakes is no easier and getting the gramophone with the red record wasn’t easy either. You have to get the globe, then freeze the globe, then place it back on it’s stand and then race to the top before the ice melts to get it. First of all you can’t just place the globe, you have to use the interact button to snap it in. Also the only clue we get about this globe freezing water thing is a map next to the globe which has a pin on the Antarctica. Cryptic anyone?

Hello Neighbor leaves to many things unexplained. How did the Neighbor’s children go missing? We see him crying by some missing posters. Worse we also see something dark, glowing white eyes and an evil presence watching the neighbor. What is this thing? we have seen it more than once in the game but no explanation as to what it is. Is it a symbol as in just showing that the neighbor has his own demons. Or does it represent the one who stole his children? In Act one we saw the neighbor lock something in the basement. When we get in there, we don’t see anyone or anything. He wasn’t wrestling with the air right? After being trapped in the room if you look through the keyhole, you will see a cardboard cut out of a boy rise up and unlock the door for you, allowing you to escape. Cardboard can’t do that by itsself. We don’t know what happened to the neighbor but he seems sad at times like at the end when he sees us through the window, like we mean something to him which is strange. We get an achievement which says “like father, like son”. So who’s the father and who’s the son? It can’t be the character we play as we got kidnapped by him and we ran away like he’s a stranger. Why wouldn’t he recognised the neighbor as his dada if that’s the case. maybe he was too young and didn’t know? Then why would he live exactly opposite from the neighbor. We know that the neighbours wife died and so our characters mum couldn’t be the neighbours wife. Also if we were adopted or taken away by social services then why are we put on a poster as missing or living directly opposite the man? We have come up with some awesome theories but they are all just theories… a game theory (Sorry guys). Too much questions. 

Lastly is how the Hello Neighbor ends. After protecting a young version of our self from a giant dark entity we have a quiet place with just a door and a part of the neighbours house. The neighbor looks sad and has a dark entity knocking on his door. If we go through the other door the character wakes up and starts moving his things into his house to live there again. We then watch a continuous loop of the character carrying boxes. nothing else, no hidden cutscene after the credits. Nothing! This was incredibly disappointing because of all the questions we are left with. It wasn’t satisfying at all. Now we are aware that a game like Hello Neighbor has to have secrets and hidden things that will give more clues or information. We know there has to be more but a standard player wouldn’t find those things but instead wait for others to find to find it. Like seriously we first think the neighbor is all bad but then we learn he lost his wife, kids go missing and has something dark haunting him by the looks of it. He looks sad when he sees us and tried to approach us but couldn’t. What happened to him? Is he okay? his house is burned down. Too many questions. 

Overall we did have a lot of fun playing the Hello Neighbor but we were disappointed for sure. Too cryptic, three hour waiting tree, so many questions, glitches here and there, not an epic boss battle, too many unanswered questions and a unsatisfying ending. Off course just highlighting the bigger stuff Hello Neighbor. We were really disappointed with the game. It was still fun with many laughing moments but disappointed.

Circuits

Circuits is a  musical based puzzle game which was developed by ‘Digital Tentacle’. It’s already out on PC but will be coming to the Xbox One the 16th of December. Now Circuits has a simple concept but it’s sort of deep. Let’s take a look.

Circuits looks so simple, that’s because it is. It’s concept is truly simple but Circuits is a challenging game. Now in Circuits you have to reconstruct a song that has been messed up and sliced up. Now how will we go about doing this. the answer is ‘music’. The music is the key. Players will have to listen carefully to the song to be able to reconstruct the whole song. So those who love music should like this game.

There are currently 25 songs which means 25 levels which is a good amount by the way for what circuits is. Now don’t start asking us what kind of music there is because we do know. There is some orchestra,  which was composed by David Garcia by the way, some electronic ambient and even some dubstep. We believe there will be a bit more.

We checked out some Circuits gameplay and we can confirm that it is a unique game. The concept here and how it’s done is definitely different from any other game. Circuits definitely requires players to have a good ear and the ability to focus. Off course there isn’t much emphasis on graphics and looks because the developers wanted all the focus to be on the music and ears. For what it is, the graphics are good and things do look nice. the music has been said to be awesome. It’s definitely a puzzle game and takes some time to progress in.

Circuits - X35 Earthwalker

Overall, circuits is very unique. It’s new. It’s different. It’s musical and it works. Many have had things to say about this so far most say that the game is good. we at X35 Earthwalker agree. The graphics are good but the music is excellent. The developers ‘Digital Tentacle’ did an very good job with this game. We at X35 Earthwalker will wonder how this game will impact the gamers of the Xbox community. Now Circuits may be musically unique but it still ain’t as unique as… the ‘Earth Walk!’

Hello Neighbor

Hello Neighbor is a first person puzzle game developed by ‘Dynamic Pixels’. It’s coming out the 8th of December for the Xbox One, PS4 and PC. Gamers are are all getting ready to move into their new house and face their cunning neighbor. Let’s take a look.

Hello Neighbor is a game that needs no introduction really. It was all over youtube and played by many of the biggest you tubers around. Millions of views and lots of videos. Gamers play a man who moves into a new neighbourhood. Things seem normal but then we become fixated on our neighbour who lives opposite us and make it our duty to break into his house, sneak around and get into his basement. I know it sounds like a game for creeps but you know you are going to play it… so what does that make you (think about it).

Hello Neighbor’s story really got the interest of gamers. Games with good mysteries have a good chance of standing out. The neighbour isn’t a normal guy. Some theories suggest that he is working with the devil. some say that he kidnaps children for rituals. Some say his mannequins contain the souls of past neighbours who got in his way. It’s so mysterious that even YouTube channel ‘Game Theory’ got involved. Either way it’s clear that something is up with the neighbor. For starters he is always wearing those black gloves like he’s messing with chemicals twenty four seven or very hygienic. Look at him!

Hello Neighbor - X35 Earthwalker

Now sneaking into the Neighbouo’s house is one thing but getting around and solving the many puzzles is a totally different situation. Go through the door, climb through a window or drop in from the roof. There are many padlocks requiring different colour keys, many items like magnets, key cards, crow bars, flash light etc which all have their own purpose. There are normal doors and then there are doors that look like they were designed by a drunk cowboy builder. Now why is this so hard? The answer is the Neighbor. He is an advanced A.I. He is constantly moving around the house minding his own business. He can hear for sounds and will investigate any unusual noises. He will at times sleep, other times work out and do stretches or even pee in the toilet. If he sees you then you have a problem.

The Neighbor in some of the beta is faster than the players but in the latest alpha you are equal speed. Either way he is fast. Meaning if you take those corners too wide, he will catch you. If you hide in a obvious place, he might check that place out, discover you and catch you. If you lock doors thinking you are safe in the storage room well he will break it down and then catch you. What happens when he catches you? No one knows but just promise us that you won’t cry. The neighbour adapts to your tactics and approaches always. So after you respawn you may find bear traps set up around doors that you like to use. You may find some doors locked. You may find some security cameras in certain hall ways which will snitch on you if they see you. He may stay by certain areas more if you are normally seen there. It gets worse.

Hello Neighbor - X35 Earthwalker

Being chased is the worse as you are blasted with loud dramatic music for the chase which also doubles as your cue for when he stops chasing you because the music then stops. He can throw glue to slow you down or at one point bear traps. We aren’t sure of other abilities and skills that the Neighbor will have as now it’s the complete and final game which must have received lots of feedback and comments. The neighbour may get a weapon as the game progresses. He may set up decoys or net traps. he may use that mechanical shark which we saw in the second beta. What we do know is that his movement and parkour skills are getting stepped up making him a bigger threat than before and harder to get away which makes sense as this is supposed to be an advanced A.I.

After finally unlocking the basement, the game is over… actually that’s not true. That’s just the start. The basement in itself is a whole new thing. Later builds revealed that the basement is pretty much a maze. Winding paths, contraptions set up, fences, gates, keys and even a dangerous presence… friendly? We think not. So Hello Neighbor isn’t going to be a simple game. it’s obviously clear that it’s large, very deep and a mysterious story. X35 Earthwalker himself and even Diamondz L45 are excited for this game and to see what is happening. What’s the real deal with the neighbor? Why does his house look like that? What’s up with the mannequins. Below is some Hello Neighbor alpha 2 gameplay by CoryxKenshin.

The final build will have a bunch of new stuff and after so many betas and alphas the gaming community just couldn’t wait for this one. Now there are some concerns from us at X35 Earthwalker about Hello Neighbor. In the latest alpha build the player can learn certain abilities to deal with the neighbor like being invisible when crouching and even knocking the neighbor of you when he grabs you. These were cool but they defeat the whole purpose of the neighbor making him less of a threat, and less scary as it’s incredibly hard to lose with those powers. Last point. Why is everyone saying that the neighbor has issues and that he’s the problem when it’s the players who have nothing better to do than spend their day breaking into their neighbor house constantly. Matter of fact, the neighbor is a nice guy for not calling the police! We know we would!

Overall Hello Neighbor is going to be a great game. we just hope the developers don’t get too carried away or mislead and end up ruining it. The graphics good for the style that it has. Surreal. Hopefully the sounds are on point. The developers ‘Dynamic Pixels’ did an amazing job. Please keep it up. We at X35 Earthwalker are definitely looking forward to Hello Neighbor. Without a doubt. Now the neighbor may be up to something but he he certainly ain’t up for… the ‘Earth Walk!’

In the Shadows is a new puzzle platformer game developed by ‘Colourspace Studio’. It’s coming out October 13th for PC and on steam but later in the first quarter of next year for Xbox One and PS4.This game was supported on Kickstarter and is now seeing the light of day. Let’s take a look.

In the Shadows is about a grown man who heads back into his childhood imaginary world. He does this to remember his past (can’t you just think about your past). He wants to make sense of his life (there is literally a better and accurate way to do that). It’s suppose to be a “deep emotional story” as described on in the Shadows website. 

Now the theme of ‘In the Shadows’ is fighting your fears. Now the game does a clever way of handling this through the mechanics of the game. For example there are shadow monsters which are dangerous and supposed to represent fear but when they are exposed to light they turn into everyday objects like ladders, tables etc which players can use to their advantage. Pretty clever concept here.

There are different light sources in the game like lamp posts, table light, light boxes etc. Now these different light sources will change the monsters into different objects like a trampoline, table, ladder or even a key. Basically you have to use these monsters to advance. They may scare you but they can help in a way.

Think about it. There are these monsters but notice they are shadow monsters and they are afraid of the light. When the light hits them, they become objects and stuff that you see and use everyday. Maybe the game has a message for gamers that some people have fears that are there everyday but when they are looked at and seen in the light, it’s nothing to be afraid of but used to your advantage, hence facing your fears to advance. Maybe but let’s see. Either way, nice concept.

We checked out some gameplay and it’s sort of what we expected when you see it. It’s a simple game with simple graphics out to tell a simple but quite deep story. It’s not something to be compared to Halo 5 and the evil within 2 etc but it’s good for what it is. In the Shadows have stars for players to collect to unlock hidden levels and secrets. There are many levels and different worlds. Multiple said to be hard puzzles to solve. 

Overall this seems like an interesting game. It doesn’t seem like a great game but the developers, ‘Colourspace Studio’ did the best they could with what they have and they made something well. Many people supported this game to get developed and it’s soon here. This may not be your style but might be just the thing for others. This game may be worth checking out. Now some people are afraid of shadows but what’s always in the light is… the ‘Earth Walk!’

Revolve is a new action, puzzle platformer developed by ‘Rusty Bolt’. It’s coming out September 22nd for Xbox One and PS4 but already out on PC. We at X35 Earthwalker came across this game but we have never heard about it. Let’s see what’s good.

In the world of Revolve, players control Reevo, which is a drone. Reevo is trying to escape a dystopian world. So what? another flying away to escape game? Not exactly. In Revolve, you do not control Reevo directly. You can only jump, use speed boosts, brake and switch gravity. These four actions however; require energy to do.

This is where the challenge of the game comes from. Reevo’s energy refills by itself but slowly, meaning you can’t spam jump and boost all the time. It’s up to the player to make quick and good judgments on when to boost, when to switch gravity and when to jump or brake to keep going. The timing has to be right. Don’t jump when you don’t need it, wasting energy. This is actually a good mechanic.

Revolve is said to have physics and momentum based gameplay. So take that into account.The steam version of the game has a level editor so get creative. There are 70 levels and some have zero or inversed gravity. You can also race against the ghosts of other players to see if you are top escaper or not.

Overall this game seems very interesting. The mechanic at work here is a great idea. The graphics are very good. The music and sounds are very nice also. The environment fits what’s happening in the world of Revolve. We like what we see. The developers ‘Rusty bolt’ did a very good job with this game. We at X35 Earthwalker appreciate games with interesting mechanics. This is worth checking out. You may be able to switch gravity in this game but you can’t switch… the ‘Earth Walk!’
