Tremendous Magbot’s demo gives engaging and repellent 2D platforming


I like “platformer however you possibly can’t bounce” sport. VVVVVV stays the gold customary, however Tremendous Magbot’s playable demo suggests it has a magnetic enchantment of its personal. As an alternative of leaping, you navigate its lethal, single-screen ranges utilizing a magnet ray that may appeal to and repel you from sure surfaces. I performed it and appreciated it.

It is best performed on a pad. The left analogue stick strikes your character, the best stick goals your ray, whereas the bumpers fireplace both a blue or crimson pulse. A blue pulse from LB will draw you in the direction of crimson surfaces and repel you from blue ones, and a crimson pulse from RB will draw you in the direction of blue and repel you from crimson.

That is how magnets work: opposites appeal to, and so on. In observe, I discovered myself getting muddled often. A few of the colored platforms vanish as you appeal to your self in the direction of them, letting you slingshot via them, and the quickfire modifications in color and course induced me to mince myself towards spinning blades and dunk myself into inexperienced acid dozens of occasions on only a single display screen.

For all that failure, it took me round 20 minutes to bash via the degrees included within the demo. Restarts are immediate and a few ranges are undoubtedly simpler than others. As soon as full, you are given 15 additional minutes to spend on a set of more durable ranges from later within the sport. Entry to those is a one-time factor, however you possibly can replay the primary 15 ranges time and again if you wish to attempt to get sooner occasions.

Refining scores is not my factor. Actually, I more and more discover I favour forgiving platformers over lethal gauntlets, however I loved Tremendous Magbot’s demo because of its central idea. It is good at what it does.

You’ll be able to seize the Tremendous Magbot demo from Steam now. The total sport is due for launch later this yr.
