What is Light Tracer about?
Light Tracer is a VR Platform-Puzzler in which the Player is a godlike creature who has to guide a princess in despair up the enormous Tower of Bellbatis.
Use your hands to either lead the princess past foe and obstacle, or move freely around the world and interact with it. Only those creative enough and with both mind and vision clear can lead the princess to her ultimate goal.
-Platforming meets VR: A new genre for a new device, a novel and creative take on the popular genre which opens up a new gaming experience that's clear from the moment the player takes up the VR.
-The World of Light Tracer: 8 different chapters, 8 different worlds: from Gravity World to Mechanica World, from sliding the princess down icy steps to the final Angelic City.
-Challenges many and varied: From classic platforming to enigmatic puzzles and boss fights that test both your reaction speed as well as your thinking speed.
-Take a new perspective: Use the PS Move controller to ‘grab' the world and freely move around. Sometimes the solution to a dangerous enemy or an enigmatic puzzle is simply changing your view!
-Of Towers and Mysteries: A princess with a mission, the mysterious god-like player and a story with a twist! Play through the levels to find out more about the princess, her relation to the player and the mysterious illness that struck her country.
Ziffi as a little anime princess, just the idea put me off for a while. Totally wrong, I must admit. The game is really successful and is a lot of fun. Our job is to lead a princess to the top of a course. For this we use a beam of light from a rod in our right hand. By touching the touchpad we start running, by one click we jump. With our left hand we interact with the world. On the one hand it can be moved horizontally, on the other hand it can be turned, as perhaps known from Tethered. We can also move platforms and interact with objects. On the way to the top not only puzzles await us, but also enemies and bosses. During our ascent we collect coins in old Mariomanier. I was really positively surprised by the game. The controls are well thought out, the graphics are great and the gameplay is really fun.
