Pretty little game. You go to and from natural landscapes and Portal-esque puzzle rooms. If you like relaxing puzzlers like Night Sky, you might enjoy this.

Puzzle platformer where you're a ball. You can roll and boost to move and you can attract and repel certain objects to accomplish goals.
As a puzzle game it's pretty decent. The art and settings are nice, gamplay is fairly smooth, and the music fits the mood into a nicely relaxed atmosphere. The main menu is a bit obtuse. Some clipping and invisible walls (i've gotten stuck inside a boulder and shot myself into tree branches, though the latter I could escape from), plus your ball isn't big enough to get over some terrain types, so that can halt your momentum in some areas as you find ways around and sometimes in the later areas you can find yourself on small ledges that weren't meant to have paths to progress so you have to kill yourself.

You get generous checkpoints and don't have to reload if you fall somewhere and "die", but you can't save progress in the middle of an area and leave the game. If you come back you can go to the area you were in. but it will be as if you just got there for the first time and all puzzles need completing, so make sure you have time for 3-4 puzzles, at least.

If you want story about why you're a ball, what your goal is, why these puzzle places are around, I'm afraid the game gives nothing on that front, which is too bad. There's enough unique things about the setting and gameplay to interest you about the reason for it all.

Overall an enjoyable experience, though.

This is a rather long review, so if you just want a brief summary of why I recommend this game skip to Results and read from there.

Impromptu Games creates a fantastic puzzle mystery which keeps the gears in your brain continually grinding. InFlux offers a serene ambience with melodic music that produces a peaceful environment that is calming.

Campaign:
Influx is the story of a small ball and its adventure to complete mazes, explore an island, and collect orbs. You must collect orbs in each area in order to unlock the maze that allows you to progress to the next section. The island continually grows as you progress through this amazing campaign and the emptiness keeps you wondering at every turn. I completed the game in about 3-hours, which means it’s not a very long game. You could spend more time exploring the landscape although because of the poor mechanics of the protagonist exploration can seem rather annoying at times.

Ambience:
The rhythmic music and simplicity of Influx creates at times a very peaceful experience. The game offers a very vivid environment without any traces of even the simplest story. Without a story to follow Influx produces something most games lack, answers. I found myself continually wondering why there were empty houses on the Island, how the modern maze structures formed, why I was even solving the puzzles, and the list goes on and on.

Gameplay:
The protagonist, a small ball, is able to roll and boost in order to accomplish tasks. There is no point where this character can jump, but by using boosts correctly you can launch yourself into various places. An interesting feature behind controlling the character is that you can boost while in mid air allowing you to change direction. Boosting also slows down time which allows you to gain a view of your environment while deciding how to act in a fast paced situation. Although there are time where controlling the character can be tricky the overall experience is relatively easy.

Results:
If you like puzzles, modern graphics, beautiful scenery, and melodious music then this would be the game for you. Despite there being more cons than pros I would recommend this game, but only if you can find it on sale for at least 75% off. InFlux is a short, but very riveting puzzle game. If you are a fan of puzzle games then this is the game for you.

Pros:
+Interesting puzzles and mazes
+Beautiful serene scenery
+Smooth loading transitions
+Peaceful and elegant music

Cons:
-Poor controls (can be annoying to control the protagonist)
-Lack of explanation
-Listed control to boost, but doesn't unlock till half way through the game
-Attract ability can be infuriating as it forms an orbit rather than just pulling an object to you.
-Too short of a campaign
