Schein is a puzzle platforming adventure game which is very very challenging ,you play as a man holding a magical green lantern (and no he's not The Green Lantern) and he explores the foggy abouts of a huge swamp lettered with traps and monsters looking for his son who's lost ,with the help a wisp that gives you the lamp which grants you the power to alter the environments surrounding you. gameplay is very hard and you'll have to go through a lot of trial and error moments in which you want to pull out your hair , and gets harder and harder as you progress deeper in the swamp , you reveal hidden platforms by turning on the green light and you can jump on them and move forward , it requires a good reflex and a solid hand-eye coordination , you'll encounter boss fights that are a whole lot of fun but also very frustrating , puzzles are difficult too leaving you scratching your head for few minutes and just before you decide to give up you'll figure it out and go on playing. The art style is very unique and immersive , the swamp without your green light is creepy,foggy and dark , and with your light on it's gloomy and full of life like platforms , the soundtrack is very nice and and the man is voiced nicely as he narrates moments of his life with his son. in conclusion , it's a very difficult game but if you're a fan of platformers then it's very well worth a buy.
