À propos de ce jeu

Splice est un casse-tête expérimental et artistique. Immergez vous dans son monde microbien et commencez à Splicer ! Chaque niveau ("Strand") consiste en un nombre de cellules que vous aurez besoin de réorganiser en une structure cible en plusieurs mouvements ("Splices"). L'exploration et l'expérimentation sont la clé pour déterminer comment les curieuses petites cellules réagissent entre elles. Re-séquencez, mutez, et Splicez votre chemin au travers de ce casse-tête qui vous procurera une expérience unique, et vous exercerez votre capacité à visualiser des séries séquentielles de formes au fil du temps. Réussissez chaque niveau jusqu'aux derniers et vous éprouverez le sentiment grisant d'un accomplissement mental.

Splice est le quatrième titre réalisé par Cipher Prime Studios, et a reçu le titre du Best Puzzle Game du concours Intel Level Up 2011

Caractéristiques principales :

  • Plus de 75 casse-têtes : Les séquences principales aident le joueur à comprendre les bases du jeu tandis que les séquences épilogues donnent du fil à retordre aux meilleurs joueurs.
  • Meilleures solutions : Chaque niveau est résolu en plusieurs mouvements. Relevez le défi et trouvez les meilleures solutions des casse-tête en complétant ceux-ci en effectuant moins de mouvements. Les joueurs débutants peuvent toujours progresser au travers du jeu en utilisant tous les mouvements autorisés.
  • Une géométrie unique : Explorez la structure d'un arbre binaire dans un espace radial.
  • Un environnement sonore immersif : Mettez votre casque audio et laissez-vous entraîner dans les magnifiques musiques de piano envoûtantes et cristallines que comporte Splice.

WARNING: it recently came to my attention that this game sends data to Google Analytics, without asking for consent, or giving an opt-out option.
You can find the relevant "GALog.txt" file in your "My Documents" folder.
Therefore, no matter how good the game might be (and it actually is), that fact alone is reason enough to give it a thumbs down.
I'm positively sure that the sent data is anonymous, and it seems to concern only the selected graphical options, but nonetheless, as an European Union citizen I'm really p***** by the fact that American companies don't give a f*** about our lawful rights.

See, what bothers me the most isn't the data collection itself, nor Google's involvement, as I have an Android phone, a Gmail account, and Chrome as my primary browser.
But the fact that all this isn't even remotely mentioned anywhere (there isn't even an EULA stating it) is disturbing...

TL;DR
American companies don't give a f*** about EU citizens' rights, so if you're one, DON'T support their shady practices.

By the way, the game is nice, and has a relaxing soundtrack, although it's a bit short
If you're really good, you could probably get all the achievements in just 2 hours.

Splice is an interesting puzzle game. It isn't groundbreaking; however, everything about it screams original. Without giving too much away (there is not an instruction manual - part of the joy is discovering how it works), the game is to arrange cell parts (?) into a set orientation by moving the pieces. Each puzzle has a set number of moves (splices) that you can make. Then to top it off, there are some puzzles that have "angelic" solutions. These are denoted by a "jingle" playing when you open them and the "Splice" logo flashing in the corner. These puzzles can be solved in less than the given number of moves for an "angelic" solution.

The first part of the game has seven sequences, with each sequence having seven strands. Forty-nine puzzles; twenty-five have angelic solutions. Then the fun really begins. There are four epilogue sequences with seven strands each. Twenty-eight more puzzles; eighteen of them angelic. These are much more complex and almost seemingly not possible. But they all can be done, and all the angelic solutions do exist.

As I said, the game is not groundbreaking but screams originality. The interface is extremely elegant and functional. It does yell out for a tablet conversion. The ambient music is fantastic. This is a great game to check out if you love puzzle games.

Dans le genre des casses-têtes, celui-là va vous donner du fil à retordre.
Je ne suis pas fan de ce genre de jeu, car les longues séances d'essai-erreur et de réflexions me font parfois sentir perdre mon temps. Mais devenir maître de sa patience est une des choses que ce jeu aide à devenir.

Deux plus : la simplicité des graphismes, une sorte d'apaisement épuré, propice à la réflexion ; son originalité, eh oui il faut le mentionner, vous ne trouverez pas d'autre jeu comme celui-ci.
Deux moins : la musique ne variera pas beaucoup, j'ai fini par jouer en silence ; enfin le jeu n'est pas idéal pour gérer les grandes densités de "cellules", un peu laborieux.

Ce qui sera déterminant, c'est surtout votre aptitude à aimer les défis de réflexion abstraite (ici, de la logique itérative-géométrie). Si vous aimez, le jeu recèle assez de défis, dispensés de manière assez progressive, pour vous faire passer des heures à vous solliciter la cervelle. (personnellement : 13 heures)

A very simple game with enough scientific rigor and visual beauty to bring me back in, this game is a fantastic palate cleanser and, for the microbiology fans, quite an evolutionary ride.

A pretty simple puzzle game with the theme about moving cells around in only a certain number of moves or less whilst filling required sslots with cells.
Instructions aren't entirely clear on how the game works and it can look a bit complicated at first but once it's learned it's actually pretty easy to handle especially.

Because the game's on Unity and with little going-over you can't close the game unless you Alt+F4, close the window itself if you're in windowed mode, or do this excrutiating task of going from menu to menu to reach the title screen which is the only "natural" place in the game you can exit. Its "artistic" "design" outside of the gameplay is more hindering than it is practical.
When you change the quality settings before the game starts they don't stay the same when you come back to it though there isn't even much to change up since it's just the usual basic Unity settings options.

Levels go by 7 levels per group where there are 7 groups in the base game and 4 bonus groups after the credits. The further you progress in the base game more new features are added to further complicate the puzzles. If you make a mistake on a move you can very easily undo and redo real quickly with the mouse wheel.

The game does what it does pretty fine as an actual puzzle game and the music's nice & chill but there seriously ain't much else to it for $10 base price.

This is the game to play if you're ever feeling stressed. The puzzles are challenging, the visuals are amazing, and the soundtrack is incredibly relaxing. Perhaps the only downside is that the game can dredge up bad memories of binary trees for anyone that's taken a computer science course.

Stylish puzzle heavily dependant on intuition rather than logic. Nevertheless, the ability to see few steps ahead will do you good in some of the advanced levels.

VERSION COURTE

Splice est un puzzle game assez sympathique et très esthétique. Sur une bande son très relaxante, vous devrez, grâce à votre logique implacable, redessiner la forme avec les cellules à votre disposition. Simple mais efficace, ce jeu vous prendra quelques heures.

Je conseille tout de même le jeu en promo.

Splice is a puzzle game about manipulating genes; puzzles consist of moving individual cells into a predetermined pattern within a set number of moves. When first launched, the cells seem troublesome, erratic, and difficult to handle, but after a few sequences their patterns become obvious, allowing advanced assumptions and predictions to be made. While the puzzles start easy enough, the introduction of utility cells which can extend, duplicate, or destroy other cells slowly ramp up the difficulty. Later puzzles can be difficult, yet remain fair and can be overcome with enough thought and tenacity; this allows Splice to blissfully incorporate a nice balance of increasing difficulty without moving into the realm of the absurd or impossible.

Visually and audibly, Splice truly shines. Minimal graphics and a haunting soundtrack add a surreal quality to the puzzles. Even on the more difficult levels there is something soothing and beckoning about the looks and sounds being offered to the senses. For a puzzle game, it is difficult to imagine a style more inviting or enticing.

The only deterrents are those common to the genre; if you are not immediately struck by the puzzle type there will not be a sudden change in the gameplay. The puzzles are diverse and interesting, but never leave the general concept presented from the start. Length has also been mentioned as a negative, but with the epilogue, Splice totals just under 100 puzzles which seems more than reasonable. Other puzzle games have offered nearly limitless levels, but often those levels seem to sprout from random generation and not through individually, well thought out puzzles such as those found in Splice.

Splice is a puzzle game in which you reposition cells in order to line up with an outline and create a biochemical strand. Cells are constrained by various rules and special cells such as those which duplicate or delete themselves, and it's in thinking around these that the puzzles are formed. There is a lot of playing with perspectives and intentionally attempting to overwhelm the player to mask a simple solution, which fluctuates between satisfying challenging and infuriating, with little middle ground and wild inconsistency.

Ultimately Splice's saving grace is also its downfall, and the same as virtually every game by developer Cypher Prime I've yet played, as they opt for a significant amount of style to make up for a lack in substance. The presentation is immensely cinematic, making great use of shifting planes and colors as you move from level to level, all complimented by an absolutely gorgeous piano score. It's a beautifully artistic game, but unfortunately I never found the puzzles remotely as well constructed. On the contrary, by the end I was fuming over some of the more difficult ones, and was more than happy when I was finally finished. Much of Splice's design seems dependent on confusing the player, but after a point this becomes immensely frustrating, almost as if the developers are just seeing how far they can push you without any hints or direction before you finally crack and quit the game.

My feeling on Splice are very...convoluted. The presentation is remarkable, yet the gameplay noticeably lacking. The entire time I spent with it my feelings were a mixture of awe and anger, kept only in line by a few simpler puzzles and a handy guide. I can't fully recommend it, nor can I entirely reject it, so my suggestion would be to check out the demo and see if maybe it clicks for you. If nothing else you'll get to appreciate a bit of the excellent audio and visuals, which rise so far above everything else.

tl;dr -> This game made me rage harder than microbiology class.

I own a handful of challenging puzzle games that I (foolishly) play to relieve stress, only to have it backfire when I reach difficult levels. A good friend gifted me this game, and I was excited to it out. I was very satisfied with my gameplay experience.

If you like challenging puzzle games, uplifting/relaxing music (especially piano scores), and microbiology, then you will enjoy Splice.

The aesthetics are simple, yet offer a nice presentation with vibrant colors. All of the microbial pieces are the same shape, however, the shape you have to make varies slightly per stage. The music is wonderful - the piano pieces are relaxing and very pleasant to listen to.

The controls are very easy to learn and only require the mouse - you will utilize the left/right clicks and the scroll wheel. There is a basic tutorial to teach you how to play, and the learning curve is minimal to moderate depending on your familiarity with puzzle games. The game has a very fair pace of gradually increasing the difficulty and adds new gameplay mechanics at appropriate intervals.

Gameplay consists of you taking pieces from a microbial and rearranging it to match a picture - the catch is you must do this within a set number of moves. "Angelic" stages signify the possibility of completing a level without using all of your allotted moves (this is indicated by an angelic portrait at the bottom left of the screen. These drive me crazy whenever I try to figure out the precise move you have to make. You can reset your level progress, or rewind/fast-forward time with the mouse scroll wheel.

As you progress through the stages, new mechanics are added to increase the difficulty. For example, one of the first new elements you will encounter is a "splitter" piece, which duplicates itself (including anything and everything attached below it) when you right-click. An "arrow" piece adds one more microbial piece beneath it when you right-click. Any right-click moves do not count as "action points," and you will actually have to do these first to solve a few of the puzzles. The latter levels add a very interesting mechanic - the ability to break off microbial pieces and leave it floating; all levels before this require you to reattach any microbial piece you remove to an actual spot on the main body.

Overall, the game is a very nice casual and relaxing puzzle game, and anyone interested in the genre will find enjoyment. Experienced and new puzzle enthusiasts should definitely give this game a try.

Recommend!

Cheers,
