[Denied] Just shift me now.
« on: December 26, 2012, 11:18 am »
A review of "Shift" by Reverse.


Game Type: PPG.


Written by Gerald123.


How Far Did I Get: Level 9


Hello fellow readers. Today my special reviewer writing pen is writing the first game of Reverse called Shift. Just to let you know, I am terrible mad for losing at level 9.


Opening Remarks: I'm not a fan of Reverse but he got a lot of entertaining games and he got his own style. He is a fan of Physics Puzzle Maker and he love black and white theme. To say the truth, they don't have too much originality. Well, today my thoughts about Reverse may change.


The thumbnail doesn't look nice, but not bad either. The first levels will kick the player to learn some little skills of Shifting and Ground Pounding. This sort of game attract me too much, so I gave it a try and came up with some conclusions.


Review: As I said before, he used a black and white theme also some strange shapes that help you to reach to the end of the level. In my opinion, this game was a little boring because only the first levels came up with new things. Maybe you may disagree with me, but this is my opinion.

You will think what is the goal on this game. Just shift the player and reach the portal, that's all. It's not an unique goal, eh? Anyways, the player is a black square shaped and he change his direction of gravity by using a switch that change it. The direction of the arrow shows which way you will move. I think Reverse thought this game was boring so he created the Ground Pound. This ability allow you to do a stump and break the grey tile. All you have to do is maneuver through the entire levels of this game. To reach the main goal, the black and white portal, you got to face some evil spikes that help you to win this game. Oh sorry, I am so confused.  Let's talk about traps.


Shift is not one of those games which is full of traps, but is full of spikes so say hello and they will greet you. I noticed that he used his own spike graphic and it's so original but I don't like the position of them. This game is full of puzzles so relax and keep your fingers fresh to play this game.


To say the truth, I have been playing this game for 3 hours and trying from the first levels 5 times. I know that you want to know the reason. I wanted to increase my speed and get a good highscore but I was just trying for nothing. Level 9, the most difficult level on Shift, was a little tricky and fun. But, after I tried several times, I noticed that one taunting block just couldn't break it. I hope that Reverse will work on that. Just to let you know, the game quickly rises in difficulty. The most difficult levels are the last two. Sorry if I am wrong but I know how to count only to three. xD Level 8: You have to find the portal and the position of the spikes are very difficult to pass them and Level 9: You have to run to go through the level.


Personally, this will be one of my favorite games and hated too. It's one of my favorites because of its unique idea and hated from the ever-taunting block. Anyway, he did well and achieved a feature and a lot of views. He decided to make another one, Shift 2 so try yourself and play it.


Pros/Cons.


Pros: Love his unique idea, nice choice of the scenery and title.


Cons: Possibly too hard for most of the gamers.
Let's go to the scoring.



Gameplay: 3/5 (He lost some points from the block and spikes).


Scenery: 4/5 (He can add some more black and white objects to fit with the theme).


Traps: 2/5 (I can't find traps but only spikes).


Lag: 5/5 (No lag).


Puzzles: 3/5 (Reverse can add more)


Power-ups: 1/5 (No power ups but this is a hard game, that's why).


Addictiveness: 4.5/5 (Lost 0.5 points just from the friendly spikes )


Creativity: 4/5 (This is why I think)


Overall: 3/5


Feature-Worthy?

Of course it is. Every player should agree. It is clearly feature-worthy. After all, Shift is a great game which caught the attention of most of the players and editors.


Thanks for reading! Now comment or I will kill you.
           Sincerely
             ~ Gerald123~   :P

Denied. Sorry. The entire thing was forced and clumsy, and you seemed more focused on attempts at humour than the actual game. Not bad, but needs more depth and you need to not just repeat the same thing over and over again. I lost count of the amount of times you went over the spikes. We get it, there are spikes. Other than that, not bad.
