Nik Tesla would be proud

Teslarad is an indie game where puzzles meet platforming. The whole gameplay of the game is based on your character ability to control magnetic fields thanks to his special gloves. Using this gimmick you can use the polarity to reach new location and solve puzzles. The various puzzles are clever and well-made, keeping the progression entertaining. The story is a nice tale about the danger of Science and the narration is quite subtle which is a good thing. The 2D graphics are gorgeous and the music are good. The game structure is really close to Metroid (By getting new items/powers you make new areas available for you to explore). Nothing original but the game does the job well. However, the game is a bit tough at times (Ex: during the boss fights) but it’s still’s still a good game. I recommend you to use a controller to play this game.

Unique game

It is hard for indie platform game to stand out this times. There is just too many of them and virtually every one of them has something special (be it unique mechanic or very high difficulty level). Teslagrad manage to stand out. With beautifull graphic and with mechanic where player controls magnetism to solve puzzles and move forward. There is great story to be told and very much worth to know, despite gameplay that sometimes smothers this storytelling and distract player from it. Play it, worth every penny.

I am a huge fan of platformers and with Teslagrad being one of them, I just had to try it. The game itself is far from bad, it is quite good actually and I enjoyed playing it. I love the cute graphics and beautiful music which makes the game so much more enjoyable. The puzzles were okay, I guess. Most of them were pretty easy to figure out, but some of them were quite hard and a bit frustrating, to be honest! I also thought the game was a little bit too short. After finishing it, I wanted more and I highly recommend this game to all people who like playing games with cute puzzles!

A game you will want to love

The environments, music, and visual storytelling of Teslagrad are absolutely beautiful. Most of the puzzles are also very well integrated into the flow of the game, rarely feeling contrived. The only issue I encountered was that, unfortunately, some of them do. The majority of the puzzles are quite straightforward -- neither dull nor hair-pull-outingly difficult -- but occasionally the player will encounter a sudden spike in complexity and/or precision requirement, which will swiftly diminish again until the next spike. Had the difficulty gradually increased over the course of the game, it would have felt much more comfortable; as is, these much harder puzzles stand out awkwardly from the rest and do quite a number on the player's immersion. Frustrating thought that may be, I can do naught but recommend Teslagrad. It is not flawless, but its shortfalls are mere cracks in an otherwise shining veneer.
