The orb you're piloting is always bouncing, making it impossible to move like you want and to use halfpipes properly.
Furthermore this game needs to load way too often (you're moving one minute to close an unsual distance and then the game loads new surroundings so that you're fps rate drops way too low to run fluently.

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.

I really liked the idea of this game, but it started to punch me in the face as soon as I discovered how many glitches there are. The pysics are a little shaky but not laughingly funny either. The first time I played, I didn't see a save button so I assumed it would auto-save as soon as I completed a level. haha. hahaha. nope. I quit and had to replay the first three levels again. I came up to the fourth level and I somehow managed to convince the game I already finished it, without even entering it. That would seem nice, but I couldn't get past it in any way, so I was basically stuck. right. reboot the game. start all over again. oh no wait, I didn't. I stopped.

Oh and the tutorial at the beginning does not explain how to enter a level, and it leaves you to figure that out too. (Hint: It's the little floating thingies, you'll need three of those)

I do seriously not recommend the game. sorry.

Rolling around collecting orbs is just really dull. I encountered graphical bugs from the start, and alt tabbing seemed to cause the ground to turn invisible. Shortly after that, the orbs I needed to collect disappeared, making progress impossible. I just didn't have any fun and couldn't recommend it unless you really, really enjoy rolling a ball around.

You control a ball which you roll through the landscape, collecting a few blue bulbs that follow you around which you use to unlock a glass building. This building is a puzzle where you have to put another ball into a box by pushing it around and rotating the building. Repeat this a dozen times. That's the game pretty much.
A few things:
  • It's short; 3 hours without rushing.
  • The puzzles are easy and can be solved by just trying a few things.
  • The exploring is restricted to small parts of the island at a time.
  • The game lags a lot when loading an area, which is pretty often at the beginning but became less later on (or I got used to it).
  • There is a hint towards a story, but we're talking about a ball here.
  • No replay value.
  • Definitely not worth the full € 9,99!
It's not great. Get it at discount if you enjoy casual exploring/puzzling and don't have a slow hard drive.

I am a little hesitant to recommend this game.

It is fun and the environments are pretty awesome, but you'll also get stuck and have no clue where to go at least once or twice.

I also came across a bug that was pretty frustrating. The path to the next area was blocked so I assumed it was part of the puzzle of the game to unblock it. After wasting a lot of time experimenting and then looking online for a solution, I found out that the area was just blocked because of a bug. You fix it by simply exiting the game and resuming.

Anyway, I suggest buying this game if you catch it during a good sale.
The puzzles and environments are cool!

我记得我写过这游戏的评测……怎么没了……再写一次。

我是一个球……是个挺好玩的解谜游戏,虚幻引擎打造,效果调高画面还是很不错的。操作:wsad滚动,左键吸引物体,右键排斥物体。利用空间和惯性来解决各种谜题。

可惜剧情貌似贫乏了些,解谜感觉难度上比传送门还要略难一些。

最近也出卡牌了,推荐大家玩玩。

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

InFlux is a rather unique (from my experience) ambient exploration/puzzle game. You play as a ball exploring an island and completing puzzles to unlock new paths to continue on your journey. It seemed like a perfect fit for me and it is somewhat, but I can't help but feel like the game is a bit of a missed opportunity.

The island is a visually great place. While the game doesn't have cutting edge AAA graphics, and it shows, the visual design is very pleasing. The ball itself looks surprisingly good and the light generated from within adds a nice effect while you roll around. The puzzles themselves take place in a sort of virtual world which have a nice clean design that is unfortunately marred by some of the most poorly done motion blur I have ever seen with no way that I have found to turn it off.

Past the visuals, the rest of the game really isn't up to par. Rolling around the island can be a chore at times with lots of sudden changes in the ground surface that will stop you or send you awkwardly up into the air. The puzzles are for the most part quite simple and can be completed with ease, but the levitation fans and vents you come across often don't bring you as high as they're supposed to, and the game's own hint of aiming up in order to go higher when boosting simply doesn't work.

The other main issue is performance. While the game ran plenty fast for me, my framerate was amazingly low for the graphical quality and it makes me concerned about running this game on lower end hardware, even video cards that could manage newer AAA games just fine. Coupled with this, the game doesn't seem to take advantage of the Unreal engine's dynamic data loading so the game stutters badly whenever it needs to load new data, often at strange places while you move around. At one point the entire game froze for 2 seconds due to this.

So while I'd like to recommend this game, I really can't. With additional and more complex puzzles, a better controlling ball, and some work in the engine department it could be a really great game. Where it is now, I'm just disappointed that it isn't more.

Very relaxing, very enjoyable. The zen vibe is palpable. Aided by a cool soundtrack, chill atmosphere, and beautiful landscape even at lower settings.

For some reason I had trouble installing it, but once I got it working it was totally worth it.

It's largely free roaming exploration and it's quite easy to understand what to do due to it's simplicity.

Due to how enraptured I was into the game, it was actually a little shorter than I anticipated. It could really benefit from an additional level or two under a different kind of landscape, like perhaps a snowy tundra, a space level, or a man made system of some kind.

Still if you need to relax, but you also want to have fun while doing it, then I highly recommend this game.

The entire time I spent playing InFlux, I kept wondering to myself and trying to discern just what about it was causing me to dislike it so much. But ultimately it became clear that there was no one thing that was so abhorrent as to destroy the game, but a long list of mediocre mechanics, frustrating moments, and missed potential stacked upon each other to create a game that is not fun to play.

And you really wouldn't notice this from the outside, so much is the subtlety of InFlux's deeply permeated problems. What appears to be an average, but solid physics based ball puzzle game is instead a amalgamation of poor design decisions and tedious level designs.

The most easily called out of these issues is the sluggish and clunky controls of your ball. There is such an absurd amount of momentum attached to movement that it's nearly impossible to retain any control even when moving slowly. It's as if there's a second invisible player playing beside you which constantly wants to go in the opposite direction, and you are left to try and wrestle control back away from them as you try to move forward with anything resembling precision.

This of course bleeds into the actual puzzle designs, which naturally require excessive amounts of control and constrained movements in order to complete, something which is nigh impossible given the previous paragraph. Compounded upon this is the astounding amount of tedium built into each and every puzzle, often placing you back at the beginning of long sequences for the slightest mistake, and making completion feel like a brief relief before you're put right back into an even more aggravating level. There's nothing clever or satisfying to find here, just an abundance of cheap failures and unrefined design.

This finally ties all the way back around to the clash of styles presented with the presentation. The game is split into two parts: that of navigating a realistic, occasionally rather pretty world ripe with nature, and that or completing the actual puzzles in a sterile white box floating somewhere in the cosmos. The transitions are glaring and abrupt, and turn the parts of the environment that are actually interesting to look at into little more than glorified conduits to carry you from one stale puzzle to the next. This isn't to say the overworld (for lack of a better term) is actually a compelling place to explore, as it feels as barren and underdeveloped as anything in the game, but in comparison to the drab color pallet of the puzzles at least presents an occasional bit of eye candy to counteract the monotony of constantly being in the same room.

There might have been some point where InFlux was coming along into something decent (I'd like to think so at least), but if so something went terribly wrong at some point and sent the entire game careening down the crapper. No matter how hard I tried to enjoy it, every single moment I spent with it was nothing but dull and frustrating, leaving me feeling like the game was just waiting for me to give up on it so it could roll over and die like the lifeless creation it is.

THis was a game unlike any other in my collection, something chill and relaxing that I could just throw on at the end of a long day and kind of fade away into. The puzzle engages just enough grey matter to be enjoyable, but are spread out enough that just exploring the world and finding neat landscapes in between breaks up the experience into a joyful take-at-your-own-pace eerie wonder. It's so rare to find a game which favours and rewards self-exploration for those of us who just like to meander through every nook and corner for idle amusement.

Do you remember that joy of discover you had when playing Portal? This game has that. No obvious tutorials, it's a fascinating and weird landscape where mechanics are gently added to your repertoire. Absorbing and fascinating.

It's not going to be for everyone, sure. And it does have a few quirky things. But there's just something about it that I found to be compelling.
