Поначалу игра не понравилась. Но под прекрасную музыку я понял её суть. Ощутил динамику. Почувствовал гармонию.

'Element4l' is an atmospheric puzzle platformer with four elements (ice, air, rock and fire).

Desc: You will get an introduction into the game which is really needed. First of all you have the element air, as second element you will get ice, next one is rock and at last fire. You will switch through the elements with the arrow keys. Every change will lower your endurance except the change to ice, which doesn't cost any endurance. The endurance will reload automatically over a short periode of time. If your endurance is too low you can't change into another element. You have always to use the environment around you to finish the level.

For example: You have to get through two half-pipes in front of you. Therefore you will change to rock to raise your fall speed and just before you hit the entrance of the first half-pipe you will change to ice to slide through it. After you exit the half-pipe you will change to air to fly above the second half-pipe to repeat the actions again. This means that you have to react often very very fast to get the right speed/timing to fly/roll/slide to the next objective.

There are calm passages like slowly floating as air over lava or wet passages like sliding as ice through water or rolling down a track in a minecart as rock or bouncing as fire from one lava pit to another.

Yeah, that's it.

Pros:
+ great game concept (like rock-paper-scissors)
+ well designed physic engine
+ tutorial available
+ lovely designed levels (with usage of the rock-paper-scissors principle)
+ non-frustrating autosave system
+ atmospheric style
+ good artwork and nice particle effects
+ awesome sound scenery with calm appropriate music
+ help system (never used)
+ funny text messages with referrals to other games/movies (like 'The Goonies', 'Harry Potter', 'Indiana Jones' or RPGs)
+ good chosen quotes (displayed at the beginning of each level)
(+ steam achievements)

Cons:
- some parts of some levels are hard as hell (in one level I needed over 100 respawns -.-)
- no story, not even an abstract story
(- no demo)

Recommended, even if it's not on sale, because it's an fantastic game concept, which was lovely designed into a really enjoyable calm atmosphere.

9/10

For starters I'm gonna say this game is nearly unplayable unless you go to Options and check the box that says "This game is too hard".

It makes your energy regen faster thus avoiding the need to figure out perfect-play for this game to dredge by small sections of every level.

Once you get past that you realize that the only way to move left is to find a way to fall onto a slope that'll make you slide that way. This game is all about moving forward.

The controls seem a bit more fluid with the hidden 'easy mode' enabled, but altogether the main difference from the 4 elements is that they move you in different directions. There's little actual puzzling related to fire/air/ice/rock and it's more about awkward ice sliding around slopes.

Occasionally you have to melt your ice on lava to become water to fit through gaps, or use rock to break apart thin walls, or become a bubble to float up updrafts, but the emphasis is more on the game's akward physics.

Even with easy mode enabled, prepare to suffer huge setbacks when you just happen to accidentally hit a slope going the other direction, forcing you to backtrack or die so you can restart with fresh velocity, often losing whatever velocity you might've had from the area beforehand.

You will find getting stopped by anything will render you useless. If you don't know what combos to use to traverse every next slope, which you won't on your first playthrough of course, you'll find your bubble bursting over and over.

The best thing this game has going for it are the superb graphics and audio.

Gameplay-wise, if you want to spend countless hours learning the maps to speedrun it or something, well, at least your videos will be enjoyable to me.

Imo at the very least, the easy mode should be considered the norm, and what is normal should become a challenge mode.

Maybe I was doing something wrong but there were times I'd be respawned next to an area I have to get past, and because of that, it was nearly impossible to build up momentum to get by because I was supposed to already have momentum from an area earlier in the game.

Or I was just completely clueless about how to get through with the limited recharging.

This was an impulse purchase, but I'm glad I did. So, so good!

To begin with the art, it's striking yet mellow at the same time. The elements are so cute with their little eyes, I feel so bad when I kill them! Which I do a lot. The little text that appears occasionally is always witty and very in-keeping with the game's aesthetics and overall feel. The core mechanic itself is intruiging and new; I'm a big fan of the rare combination of unique idea and good physics engine.

The music might not be to everyone's taste, I personally love it, but just play other music. Element4l looks good enough to be played in silence or with alternate music.

It's like Bit.Trip Runner but you're not on the same sort of rail. It's as difficult and frustrating at points, but I love that in a game. The levels are huge, and there's quite a few of them to increase the replay value.

Please get it to support the great mind(s) behind this!

еще одна изумительная инди игра, и ни одного русского обзора.. Ну что же.. Буду первым! Element4l - отличный платформер, суть которого в комбинировании четырех стихий, а также возможностей окружающей среды, и все это с одной целью - пройти дальше! Жаль, что сюжета, как такового, в ней нет.. Радует наличие скоростного режима и таблицы рекордов! Из минусов - геймпад работает лишь на 50%...
