Shegoicon 5 Your son has failed the test!
I’ve been giving out a lot of 5’s lately so I really wanted to make sure this game is a 5, so I played it again. It was a rewarding experience.

The game’s engaging story really motivated me to play. The play mechanics and puzzles alone would probably have been fun enough. That’s why it gets a 5. For the fun, +4; for the story +1.

The game play outside of the puzzles heavily relies on it’s alternating color system. By pressing Z you can change the color of the game world (red/green/blue/normal). If any objects in the game world are the same color they will disappear. It makes for some fun gameplay. The few pure puzzles in the game aren’t super challenging but made me think.

That’s something I’ve found in the two Virtanen Games games I’ve played (thus far). They have relied on simple mechanics yet presented things uniquely and with immense character. In both Virtual Silence and Tripline my inquisitiveness has been rewarded. My advice: These games have replay value.

Of final note there is some very nice music here that adds to the experience.

I tend to agree with GlingGling, but found the story disappointing. Admittedly, I prefer happy endings, but with a complete lack of character development and an end result which pretty much drops you back at the title screen again as if nothing had ever happened, it’s hard not to get a severe feeling of futility from what plot there is.
