It is a pretty decent game, if you liked portal, antimatter and the likes you will definitely have a good time.
Gets pretty challenging after a while!
I prefer this over quantum conondrum, q.u.b.e.

If you see this below 10 bucks, you should make it part of your collection.
Icon also looks nice in the grid view of the library :)

In terms of gameplay Magrunner is a solid puzzle platformer with a very polished feel and nice artstyle.
In terms of story Magrunner is a B-game. Sub-par voice acting, Ludonarrative dissonance, Disjointed pacing, Corny writing, Clichés and an overall lack of originality. However, if you like that sort of thing or If you are the sort of person who doesn't care about story and just want to play a good puzzle platformer; This game if for you.

It's obvious that this game was only playtested by the developers. Outside of the very basic mechanics (magnetic attraction and repulsion), very few are adequately explained as they are introduced to the players: mirrors are introduced with just a cryptic image, block-powered magnetic fields aren't at all. Unlike in, say, Portal or Quantum Conundrum, the environments are very visually busy, meaning that when something new is introduced, it's very easy to mistake as just part of the set dressing. And overall, the game just isn't very fun to play. You move infuriatingly slowly, meaning that when you inevitably need to backtrack to retreive a block you accidentally sent flying, the time you are in transit is longer than the actual time it takes to solve the puzzle. The story seemed interesting, from the part I saw, and the voice talent was pretty good. But my interest in how the story played out was swiftly outmatched by boredom and frustration.

The Good:
Decently programmed and moderately difficult magnetic puzzles
Feels like Portal without portals
Vaguely interesting plot twists

The Bad:
Some of the worst voice-acting you'll witness
Color scheme is "customizable" between two horrid options
You will never care about the story

Unfortunately Magrunner falls into the categeory of games that would be way better had they simply omitted story and voice-acting all together. Outside of this, Magrunner satisfies in difficulty and interesting magnetic puzzles.

Portal with magnets instead, and an opposingly cheesy and bad story.

If you like the Portal 1 or 2, you'll like this game! (I'm talking about the puzzles, not the story - it's hard to beat a humorous, psychotic AI.)

Intrusting idea going off of H.P. Lovecraft and Portal. The maps are to big so it takes a long time to make sure what you are doing and eventully it feels repetitive to me.

This is an absolutely fantastic puzzle platformer based on what I've played so far. It has already gotten mentally taxing in under an hour, and based on what others have said it's only going to get more challenging.

Press the F button, though, and it will make a lot more sense.

Also: You can press the mouse buttons repeatedly to skip dialouge. Not sure if it says that somewhere in game, but I didn't see it. It's very useful, though.

I honestly enjoyed most of this game, which is why giving it a negative review bites. The problem is, the back chunk of the game is atrocious. You're suddenly going from what I referred to a couple of friends as "Hard-Mode Portal" (same 'solve the puzzle room' gameplay, with two-button controls, even if it's opposing magnetic polarities rather than holes in time/space) into a terrible action title.

I was going to recommend this with a caveat of "By the end, some puzzles become irritating due to the checkpoint system, where you may have to restart chunks of stage if you mistime a polarity swap or make a slight field mistake on some items", but no, when you suddenly have to begin juggling explosives to kill massive sahaguin and all sorts of tentacled beasties* whereas you were previously free to take time and puzzle things out? Ick. The final stages are the worst: one involves distracting and repeatedly-bombing a behemoth to reach an entrance within sight, and then the finale is an irritation because it combines waiting for enemy patterns with dodging instadeath and making precarious platforming leaps.

If you wanted an unpolished puzzle game, the first half or so is solid with little to no hand-holding (so it's got some brain-teasers for some of us). The latter bits, though? No. Nope no good no siree.

* I only mention this because while I was blind to the latter half of the game going all Cthulhu, I'm told the marketing heavily sold it as such? Either way, multiple people assured me it wasn't the spoiler I assumed.

Do i recommand this game? Maybe!
It took me 10 hours to finish the game, a third of that is playing, another third is thinking, and the last third is dying.
This game is a « portal » copycat, with magnetism as game engine, but the physics are often imprecise.
It remembers me another game, bad rats, when you think the solution correctly, you build the solution correctly, but it may fail just because of some pixels offset, or even worse, won't do the same result between two identical simulation!
A puzzle game can be hard and challenging, it's not the problem, but it shall not be « hard » to build the solution, it's just annoying and not enjoyable.
I give three situations you will encounter in the game:
- Sometimes you need many tries ( deaths ) just because the timing of platforms or cubes ( how hard is it to detect the peak altitude of a cube when you are riding it and then perform the correct imprecise jump!).
- Often (very often), and despite of the zoom feature, you will send your « newton » (a castable magnetic point) instead of setting the magnetism of a device, because we are talking about pixel aiming here...
- Sometimes, with the exact same configuration between two tries and when 3 or more magnetic points are involved, the result will differ, making you think your solution was bad at first. It's even worse when it happens on « catapults » because the cubes are snapped to the same precise position, so it's not even a targetting problem.

When i play a puzzle game, i don't wan't to be blocked because a piece don't fit well, i don't call that a hard puzzle but a glitched puzzle.

Anyway, the physics are also almost realist, it means when you expect to « capture » a charged object by using another object in vinicity, it will or not work depending of the momentum and the distance of the moving object, wich means some situations are complex but previsible, and added to the pre-existing points, you will be able and will need to place your own point (one at time) on almost any surface . In term of complexity, it worth the speed and direction conservation you have to master in portal when you use big falls to make big or long jumps ^^ This was the feature that made me go on to see what challenging puzzle was waiting for me in the next level, despite of the « glitches » i mentioned before.

The graphims are okay, and clear enough to focus on activable objects.

The story is a joke and the Cthulhu background is just a pretext to glue the puzzles together, don't expect epic fights ( there are only 2 kind of monsters, and they basically just walk towards you and you die on contact... the screenshoot are kind of lying btw. i suspect in early versions they just planned to use a countdown to add some stress) or deep story, everything is incoherent and not fun ( opposite to portal story), and the cutscenes are unskippable! ( remember i said you will die often not because you are not clever, but because of the unfair difficulty to build the solution, expect to see the same cutscenes often ). You will feel alone till the end.

There is a decent chance you won't finish the game because you won't enjoy it till the end, or even because it's too hard.
You may enjoy it if you don't mind loosing half of your play time because of the game and not because of you, the other half will show you how clever you are.

If you liked the puzzles in Portal, you'll probably like the puzzles here. I had a fair bit of fun solving them over ~8 hours of gameplay.

Don't buy this expecting the personality that Portal has, though. No real humor. The plot makes no sense at all, and the script is pretty corny. Suprisingly, the voice acting wasn't bad, if melodromatic.

All in all, a pretty good puzzle game. The Cthuluesque theme really didn't come into play until near the end of the game. It felt tacked on for 2/3, and then in the final 1/3, finally actually became a little more relevant as monsters were introduced. They were a reasonably difficult challenge, as you had to be quick in your reactions.

Magrunner: Dark Pulse has been called Portal with magnets meets Cthulu. It is an apt description, but not quite fair. It is portal only insofar as it is a FPS puzzle game, the feel is reminiscent of Portal, but it has it's own unique charm. A little more work on monster animations would have gone a long way, and the final "boss" is ridiculously difficult until you have the "AHAH!" moment, then the whole area can be completed in under 5 minutes because it isn't immediately evident what you need to do. The game is great fun, and quite original if you can push Portal out of your mind. Some of the puzzles are brilliantly put together. If you like Portal, buy it. If you like Cthulu, buy it. All I can say is:

Ia Ia Cthulu Fhtagn!

Portal-like mechanics and a cyberpunk setting meet the Cthulhu mythos. I must say, I was intrigued, especially since I had never heard of this game until a year after its release. I grabbed it on discount for less than a latte. I was surprised at the production value. For an indie crowd-funded game, the graphics surprised me and the gameplay was tight. I am a bit disappointed that it's over, but I will admit that for the price, you can't expect a 60-hour long game. It didn't seem like a rushed ending though, so I am left fulfilled. If I had to point at anything bad, it would be that some mechanics are not introduced before becoming crucial... so you can be left in a position that you simply do not know what to do, especially when they add a time factor. On a few occasions, I had to turn to a walkthrough just to get an idea on what I am missing and then I would be good for a couple more levels.

This is a fun little environmental puzzle game that borrows from some of the puzzle solving traits of Portal. The environments are pretty unique and the graphics are very nice. Controls felt perfect using Mouse and Keyboard. The story and dialogue are somewhat disjointed and the main character seems to be a bit bi-polar with his relationships to the NPC's who constantly seem to want to talk to him. That said, it gets the job done and mostly explains the change in environments. If you're in the mood for a fun puzzler, check it out. I had a lot of fun playing it.
