You are tired of shooting a brown man but it’s fun to just run around and jump in first person so what do you do? You play Super Metroid Prime and Mirror’s Edge and Portal and then lament because you have to go back to simulating murder. Don’t get me wrong there are highlights to murder simulation but sometimes you want to play a pretty looking game and go HRMPH! when you jump or shoot something different.
Magrunner: Dark Pulse stomps into the room and makes a brutal affront. Packed with shooting such things as platforms and jumping on them in beautiful First Person, Magrunner lives up to its name in every respect. You are in control of the Magrunner: a snarky kid with a knack for computer glove and jump voice clip. Pick up a cube unlike any indie cube you have ever picked up before in this year’s breakout Run-It-At-Full settings feast for the eyes and brain.
Got stuck? STEAM OVERLAY your way to guides cheater (forget that early spiral level what’s that noise?) but consider thinking about it because the mind puzzle is a treat.
Story & Talks: (no spoiler)
The Magrunner is running and you experience what you think is portal. But surprise surprise it’s portal. And then it’s still portal? What an experience. Good voice acting. They bought a real microphone.
Looks & Appeal:
Pretty when it needs to be, which is usually. Gets dank.
Arboretums and Grass: (As seen is Dank centerfold)
Enjoy majestic foliage elevator that changes with your very mood!!!!! Gaze at the throbbing purple bud generators. Zero actual grass, really dropped the ball.
Overall the Magrunner is a dank game and I nearly pooped myself when it was magnets and not magics.
