Recensioner

““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

Om detta spel

Levande flytande maskiner har övertagit världen med ostoppbar framgång, och det är rollen som deras skapare, Arkwright, att sätta stopp för kaoset de har skapat. Vessel handlar om en man med kraften att med vanlig materia skapa liv, och alla konsekvenser som följer.

nyckelfunktioner:

  • Flytande spelgång - Vessel är byggt med en optimerad vätskesimulation med flödande vatten, skållhet lava och ånga, reaktiva kemikalier, lysande gegga, den mystiska "protoplasma", med mera. Varje vätska har unika egenskaper och och kan blandas med andra vätskor för en mer dramatisk effekt.
  • Ge vätskan liv – Interagera med "Fluro" varelser som enbart är skapade av imiterad vätska. var och en med egenskaper från den vätska dem är skapade av, vilket ger dem förmågan att smälta, omforma, absorbera, explodera och mycket mer.
  • Unika Pussel – Lös olika pussel genom att blanda de unika beteendena från varje varelse med den vätska dem är skapade av. varje utseende av världen är fysiskt simulerad, och alla pussel är baserade på vätskesimulationen. Släpp en "Drickare" Fluro och lura honom genom att spruta gega. skapa en "Mörk Fluro" och jaga honom med ljus. vätska och fysik är inte för utseendet skull i Vessel, utan är för själva spelfunktionen.
  • 2D/3D Hybrid stilart – Utforska en värld av fantastiska och detaljerade maskiner och konstiga och förunderliga miljöer. 2D hand ritade texturer kombinerade med 3D normala kartor, ljus och djup skapar en unik och överandlig syn på utseendet.

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.

When I looked at the tile I thought it will be some average platformer. But I have never been so wrong...

Once I played 1 minute I was completely into it. I felt like I was in that lab and I even felt connection with all those blobs. At first it felt very relaxing, so was the music. But when I entered the factory I heard a different kind of music. And it was absolutely AMAZING. Then I made sound effects a bit quieter and the music created an atmosphere so strong I din't notice how quickly 6 hours passed by.

In addition to all that good stuff I actually felt joy from controller rumble. It wasn't a jackhammer that got me afraid of rumble in first place. No, it gently let's you know what's going on around you.

But don't be fooled this game took me 6 hours to complete fist stage and there are few more.

Also there are bosses. Oh those bosses... it felt so awesome when I defeated the first one.

Well, no when I look at the description and see 'Very Positive' I once again remind myself that it is a great game.

If I were to nitpick this game I'd say that movement felt somewhat not precise at first but then I got used to it and didn't even notice.

I urge you to try it if you're into great puzzle platformers.

This is a fantastic puzzle platformer, especially if you love puzzle platformers. You have a backpack which can suck up different colored goo, and the different colored goo has different properties as well as different reactions when they are combined. The puzzles are really fun to work through. And while they aren't really too hard (but just challenging enough), they are fun to explore and try different things. The graphics are also beautiful and the fluid simulation is absolutely amazing. I really enjoyed the theme and the entire world presented, and I would definitely recommend you give this game a try.

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.

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)
