If only this game got some working on and more levels(plus a whole lot more recognition), it would've been an even better title! I absolutely love these kind of parkour games with high speed, lots of mobility, strong vibrant colors, etc.

Basically what you do is try to get through a level as fast as possible in one of two different modes, time trail and sphere hunt. The game mechanics are built heavily around momentum and wall-jumping, which is most of what you do to chain throughout the levels in order to perfect your run times. The action takes place in a first-person perspective, but third-person can be activated by pressing G. Your in-game character can be customized with different colors and such, which is always a plus, especially for someone like me who likes to personalize along with my character. There really isn't that much more to it, so it's entirely up to you if you want to try the game or not.

Like most games built on the unreal engine, the framerate is pre-capped at 62 FPS with vertical sync on by default, which can be changed in steamapps-common-inMomentum-Engine-Config-BaseEngine.ini. There you can either change the maximum frame under MaxSmoothedFramerate(search for it with CTRL+F in your text editor), or remove the cap by changing bSmoothFrameRate=TRUE into bSmoothFrameRate=FALSE.

For anyone interrested in a somewhat similar game that's a lot more recent, have a look into Celaria, which is a game on Indiedb that combines this with a lot more elements from Mirror's Edge! It's free since it's in alpha, but I think it so far has a lot of potential!

You run... you jump.. you shoot... you wall jump... you... do a lot of things in this game... its part racer, part platformer all... abstact awesome coolness as you race through landscapes that are once at home in the mind's eye as in grand old imagination land no texture edition. The tunes that accompany you seem quite well suited for the game as well.

Just try it out, it's pretty fun both by yourself and with friends and the game has quite a skill ceiling. You just need a few races to get the hang of the game and its quirks but overall its a winner, especially at this low price point. The later tracks make the game more of a platformer than a racer but it's all good fun especially after you master them and can do them at a good clip.

An overlooked and underrated gem.

needed over 7 minutes for the first course - looked at the leaderboards and saw that someone managed it in 23 seconds...


nice soundtrack, nice graphics. Controls are good but it certainly takes time to get used to them.

First-person platforming. Just let that sink in. A game where you can't see your own body and have literally no point of spacial reference is going to create some problems. A game that lacks any kind of polish or feedback on top of this is going to create more problems. A game with poorly-placed checkpoints on top of depth perception issues and a lack of shimmer is going to create exponentially more problems.

This is a little tiny special game. You run. Doesn't sound special? Of course it doesn't. You run through courses with "obstacles", collecting orbs. Although it sounds easy, it isn't. The courses can be a tad difficult with all the jumps and wall-jumps so doing it fast and accurately would be quite a challenge. You also need to maintain your momentum by not hitting ANYTHING. Fortunately enough you can slow time to plan your next move longer, although even that doesn't last forever. There are also higher difficulties which limit the wall-jumps and your speed. So yeah, that's a lot more challenging.

Lil' Sucky Gameplay to go with the review.

Really smooth gameplay, along with an amazing soundtrack, but it had the potential to be so much more. Multiplayer would be wonderful but setting up a server is complicated, and never ended up working for my friend and I. Really could use more gamemodes and maps... but it's worth it for what you get.

Overall really well made, with satisfying fast paced gameplay, fun to kill a few hours with.

I want to like this game, but there are a few things holding it back:

1) It just doesn't feel tight enough. Slipping at the same hurdle for the hundredth time is fine if you have a solid system where you can count your mistakes and rectify them--think Dark Souls, Super Meat Boy et al--but when you're slipping here and floating there it makes for a very frustrating experience.

2) There's nothing to the single player. Honestly, it's not worth bothering with unless you're aiming to practice for multiplayer, because what you get is a set of empty arenas.

3) They've made some strange graphical choices. In places it's borderline beautiful--a cross between Mirror's Edge and Marble Blast--and then you've got this horribly saturated collection of glares for an avatar.

I really enjoyed my time with this game, but now that I'm at the point where I'm no longer likely to spend any more time with it I find myself being disappointed.

Let me explain.

This game handles speed really well and pulling off a flawless run feels great. There's a decent amount of content to keep you occupied, and there are some pretty well designed levels that are fun to play over and over. The core mechanics feel solid and are satisfying. Basically if you're into speedruning at all this should be right up your alley.

That being said there is certainly a huge lack of polish on this game. The game advertises multiple game modes but only one of them is really worth playing. The difficulty modes are an interesting idea but there certainly doesn't need to be as many of them as there are and some levels are (while all beatable) clearly not designed for the hardest one. Additionally its also impossible (from what I can see) to tell how many rockets you have left on the harder settings.

I really wish the devs stuck with this game a bit longer. While I am mostly satisfied with what I got. I can only imagine how great this game would have been with workshop support or even decent alternative game modes, but it looks like we wont be getting any of that.

inMomentum is a fast-paced Speedy reflex running game. the world itself looks cool looking, all these platforms floating. reminded me of Super mario galaxy. Great art style, Great music
Can be very frustrating especially in harder difficulties. some of the levels were impossible to beat in higher difficulties. Its a game that can be beaten in a short amount of time

Very rewarding when you beat personal scores, super hard levels etc.
Very relaxing and fun in casual mode while ignoring the scores

In-game World Leaderboards still working
MP is dead, you might still be able to play with friends but I haven't tried it yet

There's a neat concept here, but sadly no content to use it on. The game has a very limited stock level set, unfulfilled promises of a level editor, and absolutely barren multiplayer servers. At the end of the day, even with its intriguing visual style and gameplay concept, it's just not worth it.

Poor controls and very boring. Feels like an early access game that was abandoned before any content was added. Also, multiplayer either doesn't work or nobody plays, probably both.

Fun game movment is nice with plenty of air control. the music is very nice give each level a wonderfuly zen feeling. however this game has alot wrong, leaderboards can only be veiwed at the end of a run and only show top ten in the world. settings must be changed everytime you change level, to get to the next map you must quit back to the main menu. The list gose on but nothing here actualy breaks the game once you are in a game you wont want to be anywhere else.

Feels like a poor version of Mirror's Edge. In this you have no sense of weight or presence and the controls just feel too floaty for my liking. Shame because graphically it certainly feels like a mix of Rez and Mirror's Edge. Honestly I wouldn't recommend this.

I've had dreams like this game. If Oculus-Supported in the future, then a definite must-have. If anything, just freerunning in the Freestyle level.

EDIT:
Want this game to be easier, or Freestyle to be more fun? Play some AAAAAaaaaaaaaAAAAAAaaaaa!!!! (For the awesome) and learn how to fall (as in, learn how to aim your falls, especially at/beyond terminal velocity); and achieve the highest Ninja achievement in this game (the first level helps to learn), and it'll be a level you'll lose track of time in (didn't realize an hour passed while inside Freestyle until I wrote this review/recommendation, and saw the in-game clock).

Being a 300/kph ninja that doesn't hit the ground? It's possible, and fun as hell. I can't wait for Oculus-Support for this. This is a pretty underrated gem.

EDIT EDIT:
As a suggestion to the developers (if still active), we need the ability to make maps. Although the vanilla set is fun and all, I want to check out other maps others would make, or come up with my own crazy-♥♥♥ parkour maps.

I've craved this game for a long time, and when I finally bought it, I was left very disappointed.

In a game where the gameplay it's uniquely about jumping and running around, if you built a physic engine that makes you feel as heavy and agile as an elephant, you did it wrong. Terribly wrong.

If you like jumpmaze things buy DOOM2, then play the Jumpmaze mod with Zandronum; it's easier than you think, full of tutorials and, despite obvious engine's limitations, you can fill it up with HD textures and fancy effects so that even if it will never look as good as inMomentum, it will be an enjoyable jumpmaze experience. Definitely better than this.

Average aesthetics, not remarkable, not despicable.

+Sound Effects & Music
-Physics Engine
+Concept
-Execution

If you need ratings:
Graphic: 7
Sound: 7
Longevity: ?
Gameplay: 2
4/10

I am aware that a 2 is a very low rating but... As I've already said: if it's all about jumps and the physics are bad... They did it wrong. I recommend you to try the demo before buying it, if you like the game and feel comfortable with its physics, I guess that 10$ could be a fair price.

Deadcore does what InMomentum tried to achieve, but does it right. Buy this instead.

I am not normally a fan of jumping games. I tend to get frustrated easily and don't usually have the dexterity required to be very successful at them. That said, inMomentum is a jumping game, but it shifts the paradigm somewhat in that the jumping is tethered to the mouse rather than the keyboard. Initially this seemed like a strange choice, but in reality, the game is so focused around jumping that it makes the most sense and gives the player the quickest control method. inMomentum features clean and bright Unreal engine graphics as well as a nicely made tutorial. I was especially impressed by the excellent soundtrack that matches well with the action without resorting to a pounding bass line. I liked the music so much, I would purchase this game just for the soundtrack. That said, if you enjoy games like Mirrors Edge or Prince of Persia where acrobatics take center stage, there is a lot to like in inMomentum.

inMomentum, a 1st person platformer based on running around a level collecting spheres. There is a large focus on speed, as you are encouraged to blast though the levels as quick as possible; as you are only fighting a timer. Unfortunately, the game feels very clumsy. While I'm sure you could master it in time, any time I tried to pick up any speed or do anything interesting I would fall into a pit (the levels are made of very small platforms and 90% pits). The only way to complete the level is to slowly walk though it in order to be careful, which in turn becomes very boring.

Would not play again.

The soundtrack for this game completes the level of amazingness that this game visually offers. Its a beautiful game, with such a unique feel to it. This game handles amazingly and the controls seem so fluent once you get used to them, and the only thing that could make this better would be to have friends that had this :c None the less, I really recommend this game if you're itching for a new parkour-esque type game.
What I recommend to the devs
1. Level editor- I love the freestyle map, but I want to make a map with a flow of my style, get what I mean?
2. Oculus Support- Ohgodyes that would just make the whole experience SO MUCH better.
3. I know it might sound a bit weird, but weather effects. I would just like to see it be down pouring as I jump from wall to wall, running through the rain.
8/10 would buy for friends.

Can't speak to multiplayer (maybe it's a great racing game?) but as a get-through-this-♥♥♥♥ing-stage title it's just... not fun, a lot of the time. Single player has no powerups and those are half the fun. It's dumb.
