Revolve is a Physics based Action/Puzzle Platformer. You play as Reevo, drone on wheels who is trying to escape a dystopian world. You can use speed boosts, brake, jump or switch gravity. But you dont control Reevo directly! Each of these 4 actions requires energy. Reevos energy refills automatically, but slowly, so its important to time your actions and see how he reacts in the world. Its basic physics: you trigger the action & Reevo reacts in the world... Trigger actions & reaction...
RECOMMENDED, BUT ONLY FOR THE RIGHT TYPE OF PLAYER! br>
. . while browsing through my news list I come across 'Revolve', a nice 2-D sidescroller with physics engine, whose graphics remind me at first sight of 'Reassembly'. Maybe it's because... I grew up in the Stone Age of video games, in any case, I have a heart for a nice 2-D scroller. . .
On second sight I learn that we should steer a drone through a science fiction world, okay, that sounds like skill/puzzles, not really my case. . . but: Indie developer, offer: 8, 99€, off for it. . The first game start: The graphics is as nice as it looked in the trailer, sound and music electronically chilly, I also like it. . . but what I don't like at all at the beginning is the control: it turns out to be extremely tricky:
. . . our drone is controlled exclusively by the arrow keys, with which we can only indirectly, by actions such as jumping, accelerating forward, braking and 'reversing gravity', manoeuvre it in the direction we want. Additionally, the drone has a limited energy supply, which additionally causes frustration. . . also annoying: a constantly repeating 'image noise' as a kind of visual effect, to simulate a radio interference to the drone. . . here I urgently ask the developer to reconsider whether he would rather do without this 'effect', because he simply disturbs the game and almost comes along like a bug. After two to three hours 'Revolve' unfolds its appeal, the levels are well designed and the physics in the game is fun, even if the difficulty level is quite crisp, especially since you have to start the levels completely new if you destroy the drone. . br>
+ Refreshing game idea, 2-D scroller with nice graphics and sound/music, fun physics engine.
- difficult to access control, annoying 'image flickering', as a visual effect of poor radio contact with the drone. RECOMMENDABLE TO GENRE-FANS.
