Относно играта

Based on the award-winning mobile game of the same name, Obulis takes things to the next level by fusing highly compelling gameplay with outstanding graphics, music and state of the art physics effects.

The goal of Obulis is to drop all of the colored spheres into their like-colored pots. Spheres are connected to the playfield using chains and ropes and the player must cut these constraints to put the spheres and the level in motion by the forces of gravity and physical interaction. The controls are extremely simple and intuitive. Obulis can literally be learned in seconds, but the puzzles will keep you thinking for hours.

  • Spectacular Physics and Special Effects
  • Unlock 17 Achievements Found Within the Game

This is a long review so if you just want a summary of why I recommend this game skip to Results and read from there.

IonFX makes a fun little puzzle game that produces a special world that combines Newtons three laws with gravity pushing your puzzle solving to the test. With sweet music and pleasant level design Obulis offers a deceivingly peaceful play through.

Gameplay:
After nine fearless hours I have completed Obulis. Obulis is an interesting game, but surely isn’t for everyone. In the category of puzzle games Obulis tests you by using a version of physics without friction to propel, roll, jump, shoot, catapult, and bounce spheres into containers. The levels vary and there are about 152 levels. The level difficulties go from Simple to Master with everything in-between. There is no difficulty setting for the campaign so in a single play-through you will play through a various difficulty settings, which pushes you through a rather smooth difficulty curve. Each section of Obulis has an ULTRA level which unlock after completing challenges throughout the “entire” campaign. These levels push you to the test and completing them unlocks achievements.

Features:
One of my favorite aspects of Obulis is that there is no rating for the puzzles. You either solve a puzzle or fail a puzzle, there is no score. I like this concept, but it essentially means there is no replay value to Obulis as there is nothing to do after you complete the game. The puzzles keep you on your toes, and the slowly getting more difficult challenges keep pushing you to new levels. As you progress through the chapters of the game the not only are the levels changing, but they introduce new concepts: cannons, catapults, ballista, trebuchet, gears, horizontal moving floors, vertical moving floors, and more. These concepts differentiate the puzzles and make each of the levels seem unique rather than repetitive.

Game Issues:
I write a lot about this, but if you love puzzles and like precise timing you will probably get past this quiet easily. My major gripe about this game is that the puzzles are really more based on precise timing rather than finding a solution. You may find the solution on your first attempt, but because you have to time each click perfectly you’ll be sitting there for hours. When I was playing Obulis there were actually times where I went online to look at guides to see if I was solving the puzzle correct only to find out I was, but my clicks were not timed exactly perfect. On some puzzles it gets to the point where it stops being a puzzle game and it becomes more like “Sports Arena” the arcade game made by Sammy USA Corporation where there are lights circling the border and to win prizes you must push a button right as the light next to the prize goes on. If you have never heard of this Arcade Machine you may be able to assume that it’s essentially impossible to win because of how difficult it is to time when to push the button. Obulis presents similar annoyances as “Sports Arena”. Essentially you are just sitting there clicking a button at slightly different times to solve a puzzle you figured out the answer too quite some time ago. One of the other annoyances was that Obulis didn’t always give the same result to the same physical interaction. Sometimes the ball would move slightly differently even though the same exact event was occurring. This “glitch” sometimes resulted in me having to restart even when all the clicks were correct. Luckily if you are worrying during gameplay about whether you solved a puzzle correct and are just timing the clicks wrong there is a way to ease the pain. Go on YouTube and all the puzzles have been solved and made into videos, this can allow you to view if you’re making the mistake or not.

Results:
The tedious timing issues and the minor glitches in the physics engine didn’t take away from Obulis; Obulis is actually a good play through. It offers about seven hours of puzzle solving (about two of the hours I played was with the game on pause while I was out doing other things). I recommend this game if you can get it in the Indie Puzzle Pack for a discount. I would not recommend paying full price for this game as it is essentially something you’d be able to find free elsewhere.

Pros:
+Over 152 different puzzles
+Fun simple puzzles with nice serene music
+Comes in the Indie Puzzle Pack with a few other games
+Puzzles of varying difficulty, not all puzzles have to be solved to complete the game (some of the hardest puzzles can be skipped)
+Very easy controls, only requires a mouse
+Puzzles vary, add new challenges, and increase in variation as you get further in the game.

Cons:
-All the achievements are for completing the Ultra Puzzles
-The game has some flaws in the physics engine
-Most of the puzzles have obvious solutions but require tedious work to correctly time to collisions

At first I was hesitant about getting it (use of a coupon from a badge), but I'm glad I did. It really isn't bad and makes you think. Not many games do that now-a-days. I find it a fun challenge to figure out where to get the orbs and how to move them. I would recommend this to anyone who likes a good challenge and/or enjoys puzzles.

9/10 This game needs a way to play in window instead of full-screen.

I've played some other puzzle games with a "cut the rope" mechanic, enjoyed them a lot, but compared to them, this one is annoying.

The first annoyance is the highlight-left-click-right-click mechanic: why do I need a double click to execute a single, defined action? I can see how that might be an necessity so thick-fingered users on a small phone don't tap the wrong chain by accident, but on a tablet this is already unnecessary, and on a PC, where the mouse cursor highlights the chain to be cut, this is unforgivable.

The second annoyance is that these are not so much physical puzzles as timing puzzles: you can usually figure out the mechanics quickly, but the timing is so unforgiving that it usually takes several tries to implement a solution that you have already figured out.

Add to this the observation that ball behaviour seems to depend on the color of the balls -- I put a small grey ball in a resting spot and hit it and I can hit it to a place 4 times out of 5, and I put a small colored ball in the same spot and never get it there.

My impression is that this game simply tries to prevent me from doing what I want to do. Few things are more annoying than that, and I'm certainly not going to annoy myself voluntarily. I'll stay away from this one.

I purchased this game and finished every puzzle in about 10 hours. Most of this time was spent on the timing puzzles. While the puzzle genre is full of mediocre puzzle games, Obulis is one that is worth playing. The physics behind the game are great and some of the puzzles are truly devilish. As with any puzzler, there isn't much re-playability since once you know how to do a puzzle, well, you know how to do that puzzle.
