Glitchspace Review: Hack those Puzzles!
Glitchspace is a nifty little puzzle game by Space Budgie, where you play in a digital world and use programming to manipulate objects to get to the next area. But you don't even need to know any programming to play it.
While some people may not like the game's simple graphics, I find them suitable for the game's setting. I felt that the graphics added to the game's atmosphere and setting of a digital space.
The programming aspect of the game allows you to experiment through trial and error to find the proper solution to the puzzles. These puzzles get more complicated as you progress, However, any given puzzle's structure should be able to give you a hint on how to solve it. Apparently for programmers, the puzzles will be a quite easy to solve.
Although the game does a good job of balancing difficulty with clues and introduces/sharpens a new skill, there are a few downsides of Glitchspace. Its story mode is fairly short and can be completed within a few hours. The game's UI can be confusing and complex at times due to all its options. There are also times where the level structure is a bit odd and confusing, making it hard to know where to go next.
If the story mode is too short for your taste, the game also has a sandbox mode that allows you to experiment with the game's functions.
Overall, Glitchspace is a neat little puzzle game that can be tricky at times. If you like puzzle games like Portal, you should try it out.
If you're interested, you can find Glitchspace on the Steam store.
