Recenze

““Just like Portal 2, Vessel is about a universally recommended game as can exist. It’s charming, entertaining, stimulating, and a hell of an experience for the price point.””
9/10 – Machinima

““One of the best puzzle games since Little Big Planet or Portal. Yeah, it's that good.””
5/5 – Piki Geek

““Vessel is around a quarter of the price of a AAA game, but it contains more flair and ingenuity than most blockbuster games can muster.””
9/10 – GameSpy

Steam Big Picture

Informace o hře

Svět nezastavitelného vývoje byl ovládnut žijcími tekutými přístroji a je na jejich tvůrci, Arkwrightovi, aby zabránil chaosu, který přístroje způsobují. Vessel je hra o muži se schopností přinést běžnou hmotu k životu a o následcích, které z této schopnosti plynou.

Hlavní znaky:

  • Tekutá hratelnost – Hra Vessel je postavená na optimalizované simulaci tekutin, která představuje tekutiny jako vodu, vařící lávu a páru, reagující chemikálie, zářivou hmotu, záhadnou protoplazmu a další... Každá tekutina má jedinečné vlastnosti a míchání s jinou tekutinou má vážné následky.
  • Přiveďte kapaliny k životu – Spolupracujte s potvůrkami "Fluro", jež jsou formované simulovanou kapalinou. Každá potvůrka si zachovává vlastnosti tekutiny, ze které je vytvořená, což jí dává schopnosti jako tání, sestavení, absorbce, výbuchu a další...
  • Jedinečné hádanky – Vyřešte hádanky kombinováním jedinečného chování každé z potvůrek a kapaliny, ze které jsou vytvořené. Každá část herního světa je fyzicky simulována a hádanky jsou založené na simulaci tekutin. Vytvořte Fluro "pijáka" a nalákejte ho na nasprejovanou hmotu. Vytvořte "temné" Fluro a nahánějte ho světlem. Tekutiny a fyzika nejsou ve hře pro estetické důvody, tvoří základy hratelnosti.
  • Hybridní 2D/3D vizuální styl – Prozkoumejte svět fantastických detailních přístrojů a zvláštních udivujících prostředí. 2D ručně kreslené textury jsou kombinovány s 3D mapou, světly a hloubkou, což vytváří vyjímečnou vizuální stránku, která vypadá jako z jiného světa.
  • Vylepšování vybavení – Využijte záhadnou protoplazmy, kterou najdete, a vylepšete si své vybavení, čímž získáte více možností, jak manipulovat s tekutinami.
  • Hudba od Jona Hopkinse – Hra přináší plný soundtrack od génia elektronické hudby Jona Hopkinse, který je mezinárodně uznávaný za práci s Brianem Eno, Imogen Heap a Coldplay.
  • Zážitek z velké hry - Vessel obsahuje přes 10 hodin hratelného obsahu, několik světů a různé jedinečné druhy tekutin a potvůrky Fluro.

This game is great. The story, artistic direction, puzzles, gameplay, audio, etc. are all excellent. It's very different from other modern games, but it does not suffer as a result. It was definitely worth the purchase.

Great little game! Definitely recommend it.

Quick pros:
- Captivating world
- Original storyline
- Original gameplay
- Good pacing - puzzles get increasingly difficult, but not too hard, and new items pop up regularly to keep things interesting
- Polished game
- Great soundtrack
- Don't have to have lightning reflexes to get through it (like some platformers)

Quick cons:
- No control adjustments (keymapping, etc.) - I use a different keyboard layout and it was tedious to have to keep switching before playing the game. (But it was worth the trouble. Good game.)
- Game crashed once on me.
- One graphical glitch popped up for me later in the game related to eyes on the creatures.
- Saves regularly put me in the same spot, but without the same amount of resources as when I saved...not fun.

Other info:
- This game is about 10-15 hrs of gameplay - fairly short. (Depending on how long you spend on the puzzles and going back for all the achievements.)

Quite interesting game. Visuals and audio are nice. Puzzles neither very complex nor plain - it's surely possible to solve them on your own after a bit of thought. Gameplay isn't as exciting as it could be to make you dive into playing non-stop but still easily attracts you for an hour or two every day. Technically stable software. P.S. You don't need to get all the available upgrades to complete it.

A timing/logic puzzle game with a steampunk flavor. I picked it up in a summer bundle, tried it, found the puzzles too bland to hold my interest.

With its quirky visual style, I really wanted to like this one, but terrible controller lag, in what is just another switch-flipping game means I'll pass.

Controller support: Great!
Physics: Wonderful!

Gameplay: Couldn't really get into it. Lots of puzzles that put you through all the motions of moving fluros around even though you know what you want to do.

Doporučuji i nedoporučuji. (Steame, když už konečně umožníš zvolit neutrální postoj?)

Vessel je vizuálně velmi pěkná hra, která se může pyšnit spoustou originálních nápadů a zajímavými fyzikálními hrátkami s několika druhy kapalin. Po stránce hratelnosti však dokáže stejně tak dobře bavit jako i nudit. Prakticky po celou dobu hry jen chodíte od jednoho logického puzzlu k dalšímu. Těch je ve hře přibližně 30 a křivka jejich náročnosti (a také zábavnosti) je hodně kolísavá. To, co zprvu vypadalo jako procházka růžovým sadem, se časem změnilo ve frustrující tápání, sérii marných pokusů a hledání řešení na internetu. Často je přitom na vině sama hra, kdy kvůli chybám v AI a křehkosti tekutých potvůrek zavrhnete správný postup a potom už nevíte jak dál. Velkou roli zde hraje také náhoda - co se vám někdy povede napoprvé, to se jindy nemusí podařit ani napodesáté.
Představte si, že vlezete do místnosti plné plošinek, páček, tlačítek, žebříků a spínačů. V inventáři máte 5 semínek, které můžete skombinovat s několika typy kapalin. Z těchto kombinací pak vznikají příšerky "Fluro", které se liší rúznými vlastnostmi - skáčou na tlačítka, bojí se světla nebo tmy, vybuchují, pronásledují hráče atd. Vaším úkolem je zvolit si správnou příšerku a navigovat ji tak, aby vám pomohla otevřít průchody k dalšímu puzzlu. Takže pokud vám nevadí nijak zvlášť zábavná hratelnost ve stylu "pokus - omyl", můžu vám tuto zajímavou hříčku s klidným svědomím doporučit. V opačném případě ruce pryč.

Vessel - Fresh take on puzzles

For me it was really refreshing experience in terms of solving puzzles. But there is much more than just puzzles to this games and in this review I'll try to explain myself.
It all starts in a lab with a very nice introduction to the story about the engineer that has invented a way to control the behavior of the liquid and then realized the potential of his invention. To make it easier for me I will tell that with that invention you can turn liquid into a living creature that can follow basic commands. But as with any inventions there are potential issues. And those issues started in the very lab they were invented.

And that were the learning curve starts, gradually. It's not very steep to turn me off right away and not to gradual to make me feel the game thinks I'm an idiot. The game definitely knows what it wants to be and tell that to you in the right way.
After playing for about 1 minute I was completely into it and I knew I was not going to bed before I complete it.

I think it is quite easy to ruin the game with a review spoiler so I will try to stay away from solving puzzles and just talk about what I loved about the game in no particular order.
So the first think I loved in this game are the Fluros, those creatures made of liquid using the invention I mentioned earlier. I felt that the protagonist has emotional bond with them and I started to feel that. You will probably too when you get into the game. There will be a variety of them and they will have unique abilities so you will have a lot to tinker about as the game progresses.

Then there's graphics. From what you can see on the screenshots it's nothing fancy but there's charm to it. And for me that means more than anything. Believe me I recently played games that are 20 years old. So back to Vessel and it's graphics. It's an amazing blend of 2D and 3D that give the characters that unique look.

Then there's music which I only started paying attention to after I learned the basics. The soundtrack is very immersive and it perfectly fits any given location or situation. I was sitting there on the couch with my headset on and enjoying the flow of sounds to my ears.
The controls. The first thing I noticed were the clues on how to use switches and other things it was great and I didn't really need any manual or even look at the control scheme in the settings. I was playing with a gamepad and I didn't turn of the rumble because I didn't even open control settings. And that was a good thing. Because unlike games where the gamepad ruble is more like a jackhammer that makes your entire body to shake. In this game it's gentle and just makes you feel the feedback from the environment in just the right way.

Gameplay is liquid. Yes, almost all you do involves liquid one way or another. It plays and feels so unique and I really don't remember any other game that was anything like it. Not that I played too many games but I played enough to say that for myself.

And now, upgrades. It doesn't make the game any less difficult but it makes solving puzzles more convenient. And wanting to upgrade your equipment makes you solve optional puzzles and I love optional puzzles and missions.

Last but definitely not least I'd like to tease you with a paragraph about the bosses. This being a puzzle game it will make you think how to approach every single one of them and the same tactics will not work. In my opinion everyone who plays puzzle games should complete the game just to appreciate the final boss and final puzzle. I can only assume how much thought went into making those and how satisfying it was to complete the game.

Remember I wrote earlier that I planned to complete it that night? Not a chance. It took me 20 hours and it was worth every second I spent. And every penny to. Not that I spent to much during the sale but I would have bought it right away if I know what I know now.

So pick it up sometime and enjoy!

I played this, then for an LP, then a few years later for the final achievements.
This game is majestic and wonderful and I'm kinda heartbroken there is no sequel.
The world, thin as it is, feels like something I want to explore more of. The Fluro are cute, exciting yet something to be respected. The puzzles are clever and sometimes amazing. It's sad that most upgrades are superfluous, especially since they feel like they could be used in exciting ways if the world just let it.
And the environments. Gorgeous. Beautiful lighting, painterly landscapes, a steampunk aesthetics that even I, not a huge steampunk fanatic, can drool over.

Vessel has a special place in my heart.
It's not a long game, depending on your puzzle skills.
But it's a truly wonderful game either way.
If you're a cheapskate, get it on sale. But trust me, it'll stick with you.

Vessel is a really neat physics based puzzle platformer with the primary mechanics revolving around fluids and these cute little fluid creatures that each have specific AI depending on the material they’re made of.

I admit, because it’s an indie puzzle platformer this game sat around on my metaphorical steam shelf and collected dust for quite a long time. I don’t enjoy these types of games and I tend to find them overly frustrating or convoluted for the most part. Vessel certainly is not a cake walk by any means, and there were a few moments when I felt like progress was impossible, but it was nice because the reason I was having trouble was simply because I lacked a tool that I had not unlocked yet. The puzzles made me think but did not feel ridiculous or malicious, being able to progress through the game at a moderate pace really made the whole title so much more enjoyable.

I didn’t complete the entire game, but it was not for a lack of enjoyment or a spike in frustration. Vessel is a wonderful game and deserves to stand out amongst the other physics puzzle platformers.

Developer: Indie Pub
Platform: PC
Controls: Full Controller Support

Vessel is a fluid based puzzle-platformer in which you play as M. Arkwright, an inventor who created an automaton called a Fluro. They were created to help out with laborious tasks which they can perform better than humans. Only problem is they start evolving and running amok so you need to go through the world of Vessel to fix what they have broken.

To help you out in the game you get a liquid gun with a tank attached to it. You can either spray liquid or suck it into it. It’s also upgradeable with different nozzle tips and larger tanks. With this and the Fluros you will be able to complete the puzzles throughout the world.

You’ll play through three different areas where you will need to repair machinery that the Fluros have broken. The levels consist of a factory, orchard, and mines. Through these levels you will discover new types of Fluro that you can use. You also need to capture each type which will then give you a seed. The seeds can be thrown on the grown and spray with liquid to form whichever Fluro it is. These vary from ones that like to press switches, chase you, collect liquid till they pop, hide from light, or go to the light.

The puzzles in the game are challenging and fun to do. I had a few that really made me think but the fun was in discovering how to get the different Fluros to work for you. The story also wasn’t too bad and did add a little to the game but it was really all about the puzzles. Overall Vessel is a fun challenging puzzle game to play and should not be missed.

Bear Pros:
Great liquid physics
Fun challenging puzzles
Fluro characteristics

Bear Cons:
Somewhat lackluster ending
Only three areas to explore
Needs more of these great puzzles (not really a con)

Intro
------
Bought Vessel on the humble bundle store for a couple of quid. Looked like a decent puzzler. Was looking for a game which could run on my laptop. This seemed perfect.

Gameplay
-----------
I played with Xbox 360 controller and it was very responsive. Full controller support i believe. Graphics are nice and colourful. Slightly cartoony and cute but HD. The music was not annoying although i think it looped throughout the game. The fluid mechanics are nice. The difficulty curve is good, starting off with simple puzzles and moving onto more complex ones. Some of them were quite difficult at first, but after a bit of trial and error and sometimes looking at everything from a distance the solution comes forth! Very rewarding feeling on completing the game.

I will look at other games this developer has made as I like his style and enjoyed this game a lot. First game on steam to unlock all achievements too after investing 30 hours on it.

Conlcusion
------------
A very good game overall, i would give it 9/10.

Bugged Achievement (Internal Rejection)?
---------------------------------------------
Some people say one acievement is bugged, the one where you have to create a dark fluro out of green glo goo (Internal Rejection). The achievement is not bugged, you have to put some green and some blue on the floor, then put the dark fluro eye in to start creating the dark fluro, but the trick is to start sucking up a little bit of it as it is being created, if not, it will not sustain itself and explode / die. 50% of each green and blue and then eye and then suck up a bit of the blue so it is more green than blue...... worked it out after 5 mins of trying....

The game is... okay.

It has decent and quite creative puzzles, plenty of hints that build up the puzzles, the control is quite responsive, and there's actually some sort of story that draws me in. The visual isn't really up to my taste, but eh, may be other people will find it just fine.

For me there are 2 problems with the game. The first one is that there's some sort of upgrade system that actually has no use. Nothing really gets easier by unlocking the upgrade, you can't get faster or die harder with the upgrades.

The other problem is I find the number of puzzles quite lacking. There are maybe... 25 main puzzles here (could be 35-40 if you count the tutorial puzzles). I was seriously surprised when the game ends, I thought it's just mid way, especially since I haven't used the upgrades at all.

All in all, I'd put down "neutral" score if I can, there are plenty of other games on Steam.
