The story of Twin Sector takes place in a post-apocalyptic future where the remains of mankind have been put to artificial sleep in cryogenic chambers deep under the contaminated surface of earth - until the planet becomes habitable again. You as the player must take the role of Ashley Simms, the protagonist of Twin Sector.
Suddenly awakened by the station's security A.I. system O.S.C.A.R., you face the imminent extinction of all other still sleeping survivors due to an unknown failure in the life support system. According to O.S.C.A.R., you are the only person who was able to be woken and therefore the only individual capable of saving mankind. Within the next ten hours you will need to repair the broken main generator of the subterranean bunker system in order to reestablish the station's functionality. But there are yet unknown forces trying to prevent you from succeeding at all costs.

In Twin Sector is something different from most games of its kind: there are no weapons and all the fights that we encounter on our journey will be solved using the only accessories that are fitted, our gloves. In most cases it will be sufficient to use the power to throw objects (barrels and crates) to resolve the fighting, but for the rest of the adventure the emergence of new and more aggressive enemies will complicate the situation. No more simple "robot-ball" but turrets, robots, and more, each with a specific modus operandi and requiring a different approach. The graphics, unfortunately, is not satisfactory: many of the environmental textures are low resolution with a propensity for monochrome and it's all too similar and monotonous, only the effects of light and the particle are worthy of note.

If you are fan of Portal series you may like that game.Instead of portal gun you have 2 gloves: one to attract objects and 1 to repel them.Most of people wont like the game just because it's inspired by Portal(no idea why).Graphics is quite good and voice acting is also good but they could work a bit more on it.One little mistake in the game will kill you.

Clearly inspired by Portal, this Twin Sector is a first-person game where everything is focused on solving puzzles. Unlike its predecessor, where the various puzzles were solved with the help of the "Portal Gun", here everything is literally in "our hands", thanks to two special gloves that we wear: the left will allow us to attract to us objects away, grab and rotate walls or structures to perform jumps shorter or longer depending on the power struck. The right, however, to hurl objects and drop them to form waves of energy to cushion falls from heights impossible. The game mechanics are based entirely on the exploration and use physics to solve puzzles and overcome certain obstacles. Twin Sector is a game, or that you love or you hate, there is no middle ground. But if we are part of the first category the satisfaction of having solved a puzzle and almost obsessive desire to move forward are sufficient stimuli to shut an eye on the various defects that are hidden in the game, including the physical and in some cases it is not very realistic and the graphics are not as good.

Twin Sector is a first person action game, created by the development team studies Headup Games. The story presents a grim vision of the future world, devastated by years of war. Most people gave up frozen in cryogenic chambers, hoping to survive until conditions improve life on Earth. Unexpected system crashes, and the only chance of survival for mankind is to wake up from sleep Ashley Simms, who can remove the cause of the fault.
Poorly executed game.CJV | Aug. 18, 2012 | See all CJV's reviews »
The first impression you get is that this is an ugly game, not only the graphics are bad but also the design feels uninspired. Both the story and the acting aren't great but the worst it's the puzzles. They simply aren't fun to solve, it feels like a choir and it gets very frustrating when you die due to the clumsiness of the gravity gloves or due to the not very good physics engine.
I tried this game for an hour and didn't enjoy it one bit. I do not intend to play it again.
