When the crew of the spaceship Endera is sucked into a black hole, it seems like the end. Fortunately, the ship crashes on Entity - an unidentified object resembling a planet. After the crash, the first member to wake up is the guy who makes coffee for the crew - you! There's no one around and your only ally is Auriel, the ship's computer's sarcastic A.I. Together, you'll need to come up with a plan to fix the spaceship, save the others and become heroes of planet Earth by closing the black hole once and for all. It won't be an easy task, because the mysterious caves, lost cities, towering mountains and deep forests are full of tricky, gravity-defying puzzles and deadly traps.
BLACKHOLE is a 2D puzzle platformer that is set apart from other similar games by having a fully voiced cast of characters with a focus on story and humor in addition to the gameplay. Blackhole's story involves a crew that has set out to save the Earth but ends up trapped and requires saving by one member of the crew and their AI. The game includes six acts, each with a different type of area that can introduce new features to the game, such as trampolines or things to push, though the primary mechanic are gravity platforms that will rotate the stage when you step on them which will allow you to collect the required nanobots to repair your ship and advance the plot. The levels are based around this mechanic and are well designed. While the game can be enjoyable enough to recommend from just its gameplay the humor and characters further improve on the game making the recommendation even easier, especially when it is selling for such a low price. The complete edition of Blackhole includes developer diaries, 10 more levels, a soundtrack, an artbook, and all of the DLC that had been released for the game. The DLC includes the Testing Laboratory which acts as a prequel to the main game and includes 20 additional levels. Also included is Secret of the Entity and the new Challenge Vault (though that is available for free if you own the base game). These additions bring the stage number to around 130 and are well worth it if you enjoyed the original game.
