Teslagrad is a 2D puzzle platformer with action elements, where magnetism and other electromagnetic powers are the key to go throughout the game, and thereby discover the secrets kept in the long abandoned Tesla Tower. Gain new abilities to explore a non-linear world with more than 100 beautiful hand-drawn environments, in a steampunk-inspired vision of old Europe. You play as a young boy who suddenly finds himself embroiled in a long-forgotten conspiracy, involving the despotic king who has ruled the nation with an iron fist for several years. Jump into an outstanding adventure told through voiceless storytelling, writing your own part. Armed with ancient Teslamancer technology and your own ingenuity and creativity, your path lies through the decrepit Tesla Tower and beyond.
First things first.
-It is a platformer
-It uses physics (magnetism) based puzzles
-The last third is heavy
Who doesn't like heavy platformers and/or puzzles just shouldn't buy the game
All others find it hard to recommend.... The puzzles, bosses need a bit of skill, but with a good strategy it actually always works. Only with the bosses you have to remember their patterns, but they are never unfair. The story is non-verbally told about scenes, collectables and Thatern with mechanical dolls and has a pleasant depth which you rarely find these days. Of course, you have to find all the collectables to understand the whole story and to see the whole end. Just a warning. All in all, it is a very interesting little indie game with interesting concepts and a good story. It's never unfair, but it's not too easy. And if you complain about the collectables: There is a guide for their locations and videos how to reach them.
