Painful physics puzzles… in a fun way (trust us)!
Nebulous is a physics-based puzzle game where you must help guide Commander Dash Johnson, a trapped astronaut, through maze-like levels, seeking the next wormhole to his eventual freedom. Arrange the pieces of the puzzle so that when he falls, gravity and momentum guide him safely (and probably painfully) to the end.
“This is just a chemical reaction - all in my mind. And what a fine, strong mind it is - handsome even - and more than capable of riding out this hallucination, clearly caused by cosmic rays... Right?”
Every level has up to 5 playfields, arranged in a cube. Rotate the level and move the objects in each panel, then release Commander Johnson and hope he makes it through to the final wormhole! Deal with unreliable gravity, trampolines, conveyor belts, and other fun inconveniences.
"What if this isn’t all in my mind? What if… what if something is moving these objects? Or someone…”
Oculus Rift VR-o-Vision Support!
The game is designed with the Oculus Rift in mind. You can interact with the world by turning your head to select and move the objects in each level. If you don’t have a headset, you can also play with the mouse.
▪ Solve a plethora of brain-teasing puzzles
▪ Use or dodge trampolines, gravity machines, conveyor belts, space rocks, lasers, blocks, blocks, and more blocks (and other stuff)
▪ Physics-driven puzzle “fun"
▪ Fun is in quotes to show that it’s actually really fun
▪ Guide a powerless astronaut through an absurdly horrific limbo and relish his misfortunes as he questions his sanity in fully voiced dialogue
▪ Play hands-free in fabulous Oculus Rift VR-o-Vision
▪ There’s no such thing as space madness
Nebulous is yet another physics based puzzle game that has you going from stage to stage attempting to complete each level with a ranking of three stars. On each level your goal will be to set up different pieces that will cause a falling astronaut to roll along them in hopes of having him reach the portal to complete the level. Stars are earned by completing a level quickly, completing it with only one attempt, and completing it while collecting all of the star pieces that can be found on each stage. There are only 40 levels, much less than some games of this style, but as you play they get more difficult and might have you attempting to navigate different boards. The graphics and sound are simple and don't do much to make the game stand out. If you like physics puzzle games like this it is a good game but the higher price, lower number of levels, and uninteresting art making it difficult to recommend.
This game has so much to offer with its mechanics. While it is a low budget indie game, the style and genre are very unique. I went in with high expectations, and came out the other end very pleased, as it was a very fun experience. I will say that adding some more depth to the content and story would greatly increase the fun of playing. Regardless i would very much recommend this to others.
