Transistor is a story-driven, linear experience that boasts a soulful blend of action-RPG and isomorphic hack-and-slash. Beautiful graphics and the alluring, lullaby soundscape create a marvelously intriguing atmosphere that is sure to appeal to nearly any gamer. The narrative is interesting, but doesn’t explain everything and leaves a lot of room for interpretation. Together, these aspects create a very entertaining, albeit somewhat short, experience.

Probably the first thing you will notice is how aesthetically pleasing this game is. If you are someone who enjoys games with graphics that feel like interactive paintings, you will definitely enjoy the art-style in Transistor. Complementing the beautiful art is the serenading, sing-song soundscape. These elements are perfectly crafted and blended to create a truly inspired atmosphere.

The game drops you right into the thick of the narrative, and things are slowly explained as you progress through the story. However, the explanations of things are far from “spoon-fed,” and much of the story is open to interpretation. The tale unfolds during gameplay for the most part, so things stay lively rather than there being many plot-development inspired lulls in the action. Be aware that because of this style of narrative gameplay, the game is very linear and it will continue to usher you from one spot to the next with little room for exploration.

The combat and actual gameplay mechanics are an interesting blend of RPG elements, isomorphic hack-and-slash, and turn-based tactical planning. You will gain experience as you play and can unlock new abilities which can then be combined in various ways to keep things fresh as you progress through the game. A dynamic difficulty system, Limiters, is another appealing aspect of the game. Using these, you can increase the difficulty of the game in various ways (more enemies, stronger enemies, less access to abilities, etc.) which allows you to customize the gameplay to your skill level.

One downside is that the game is rather short. However, you also can’t even unlock everything in a single playthrough no matter how thorough you are— so the game is clearly designed to be played through at least twice. That said, I personally would have much preferred if the game was twice as long with the ability to unlock everything in one playthrough.

In short, Transistor is a very well designed game that certainly has a very unique identity. This underlying novelty combined with the charming atmosphere provides a truly enthralling gameplay experience. I would say any all-around gamer will enjoy this game, and obviously fans of the genre(s) even more so. Expect 8 to 15 hours depending on if you want to do everything and play through a second time.

Transistor is a sci-fi themed RPG action game, developed and published by SuperGiant games (the same guys who brought us Bastion), releasing on PC in mid 2014, and then later in that year on PS4, and then got a further port to IOS in June of 2015.

Game play in Transistor takes a lot of elements from Bastion. The camera angle is in an isometric point of view as you control the main character, Red. You traverse a series of locations fighting enemies, known as the "Process". A nice feature which has been added which is where Transistor differs from Bastion, is that you can either fight in real time, or in a planning phase. The real time plays very similar to how any isometric action game would play out, however the planning phase really adds an element of strategy to this title; you have a limited number of commands you can carry out before needing to recharge, these commands include moving around the scene and casting your various spells and abilities.

As you progress through the story, you will come across other characters who have fallen victim to the Process, and you will take over their souls and learn new abilities and powers. You can either use these new abilities as straight up spells/attacks to use, or you can also enhance your current spells/attacks with the new abilities, granting unique effects, such as adding an area of effect technique on an ability. You can also have up to 2 of these abilities being used as a passive effect on Red, so are in effect all the time.

Transistor is a stunningly gorgeous game. The art style on show here are some of the most perfect graphics I have seen. This game should be one of the front runners for people trying to get the media to understand that video games should be classed as a form of art.

The story in this game almost had me tearing up at the end, it is one of the most heart wrenching endings to a game I have ever played. Along the way you come across a series of plot twists, and at one point you even think the story is ending only for it to take a dramatic turn and continue. Words cannot fathom how gut wrenching I felt at the end, I encourage anyone who has already got Transistor, to play it and finish it just to experience the final scenes.

Much like Bastion, the audio is one of, if not the best feature of this game. The narration whilst not as good as Bastion's (because that was pretty much perfect), it still sets the mood of the game, and carries the plot through to conclusion extremely well. There isn't much voice acting in the game, actually Red doesn't speak at all, until the end of the game. The sound track to Transistor has been released individually, has sold phenomenally well. Some of the songs actually remind me a lot of a sort of James Bond movie soundtrack.

I have to admit, the lack of a tutorial in Transistor does knock it back a little bit, but once you actually are able to work out what all of the interface means, and how to properly carry out the fight scenes, the gameplay becomes second nature and you are able to blast through hoards of enemies without batting an eye lid. The end boss is something of a sufficient challenge as well, resulting in me having to replay it at least four times before I was able to succeed in beating it. Another nice feature to be seen is, that you can actually implement your own difficulty barriers in game, such as allowing enemies to do more damage to you, BUT you get some sort of reward in return, such as more experience. You are able to chop and change these "barriers" as and when you please in the same way you can with your spells abilities.

Transistors levels are all extremely well fleshed out, allowing you every opportunity to venture off the main track and down alleyways and into buildings with no real specific plot line to it, letting you explore the gorgeous world this game is set in. You are also able to use terminal computers scattered around the world, allowing you to dig deeper into the lore, and some times interacting with them to complete surveys and sign petitions should you desire to.

A full playthrough of Transistor will take you just under eight hours. This is one of the few games that I can say I have finished more than once, just because of how good it is. There isn't any side missions in the game, but they aren't needed, just because you will be so immersed in the main story that you wouldn't want to do them anyway. Even though the ending of the game is the same regardless of the route you take to get there, the gameplay is such a high quality, that the replay ability is still there, because you will just want to experience the sheer fun you have whilst playing.

Sadly I did have a couple of issues getting Transistor to run properly; firstly the game does not support anything higher than 1080 resolutions, whilst this isn't a massive issue given that 1080 is still the standard, it would of still been nice to see it in there. Secondly, I had to delve into the registry of my PC to fix and issue with the game also not loading into full screen mode correctly - if you run into this issue, the fix can be found in this thread on the Steam forums.


Transistor is another absolutely stellar game by SuperGiant Games that everyone needs to play; some of the game's original ideas, the graphics and soundtrack are some of the best I have ever played in my fifteen years of gaming. Lord knows what else these guys have in the pipeline, it can only be amazing given their track record. For the low price of £14,99, you need to pick this game up. It has been known to go as low as £3 on Steam, which is I would almost class as day light robbery if you can get it for that price. Do not hesitate to pick this game up for the full price.

First of all: thank you SuperGiant Games, the game is another masterpiece.

You play as Red, a popular singer in the Couldbank city, but for some reason one group called Camerata are hunting some influential people, and they try to get you. After that, it is up to you to find out what is going on and why they are doing it.

The gameplay is great and it has a interesting and innovator turn-based combat system. In the combat you can try combine different weapons to test the best combination that works for you, but the game has a nice way to present some new combinations and help you to test every weapon available.

The art, game design and the music is awesome. It will mesmerize you in every single moment of the game. I don't have word to describe, it is just beautiful.

I'm in love with this game and I truly recommend it: great story, beautiful art design, incredible music and nice combat system.

One more nice game and story from Bastion creators. It provides you a dynamic gameplay, lovely music and a spellbinding plot. The only issue I found is replayability - after all I don't feel like pass it again. The game is short, it took 10 hours only to get the end, but, imho, it's better to play a good short game then a bad long one =) I can clearly recommend it to grab on sale and enjoy!
