Geniales 2,5D Sidescroll Spiel. Erinnert an Aline 3 auf dem Super Nintendo, ein wenig Event Horizon und Dead Space.

Steuerung geht auch mit dem XBox 360 Controller, jedoch ist das zielen mit dem rechten Stick für mich zu ungenau, so das ich mit Tastatur und Maus spiele.

Und gerade zum aktuellen Salepreis von 2,50€ sehr empfehlenswert.

English:

Great 2,5D Sidescrollgame. Plays like a mix of Alien 3 (SNES), Dead Space and the Event Horizon Movie.

XBox 360 Controller works perfect but aiming with Mouse is way easier for me.

The reduced Sale Price (2,5€) is a great chance to get the game !

Abgesehen von dem plötzlichen Abspann des Spieles war ich positiv beeindruckt. Man kämpft sich als weiblicher, letzter Überlebender durch verschiedene Stationen eines biomechanischen Raumschiffs, das nach einem Angriff von Aliens etwas von seinem einzigen Glanz verloren hat.
Die Waffenauswahl ist begrenzt, genau wie die Menge der Munition, welche auch erst angefertigt werden muss. Ganz klar: "think and survive". Die Identifikation mit dem Charakter ist schwerlich möglich, da dieser nur durch die Kommentare der Schiffs-KI seine Identität erhält.
Die Story erschließt sich dennoch sehr dicht durch gefundene Tagebücher verstorbener Crewmitglieder. Auf diese weise erhält der Spieler auch Einblick in die technische Entwicklung der Schiffsbesatzung. Leider sind einige Einträge abgeschnitten und nicht vollständig zu lesen.

Fazit: ein gelungenes Survialgame, das, wenn kein Sequel erfolgt, am Ende etwas flach abebbt.

I want to recommend this game. I really do. It pains me not to. This game was fun to play, and had a very interesting story to tell. But ultimately, the game is just... incomplete.

I'd find locked doors with enemies on the other side that I thought would have to be backtracked later. I had mission objectives that I couldn't complete yet, and thought I'd loop around to it. I'd see undiscovered areas on the minimap that I thought would reopen later. But ultimately, none of it amounted to anything. It was just incomplete.

As a game, it was fun. I'm sure the developer is just as miserable about this as we are. Dark Matter could have been amazing, but he just didn't manage to get enough kickstarter funds to make it happen. I feel for him, and I do actually hope you readers buy this game, if only to support a potential sequel. But at face value, upon completing this game, can I recommend it? With a heavy heart... no.

I find it slightly offensive that this is being sold as a complete game. You get the gernade launcher and your on a mission to do something to proceed the story and the game suddenly ends when you enter a door out of no where. You don't even get to use the gernade launcher except to access the magic end game door. It is very obvious that the game is not intended to end here but for some reason they just end it and released the game.

Nice theme and a good start to a story... but it's obvious that they didn't actually finish it. Quite buggy and a distinct lack of polish.

This little gem had a lot of potential but it's not finished.

I normally don't like side scrollers much but this one appealed to one of the niche styles of 2d scrollers I can enjoy, and when I got it, it was pitched as a full game, but it is not. It is part one of a series of games that was abandonned before this one was even sold, meaning the full game being advertised was already canned before it went on sale.

It's still an interesting play and can have a little fun playing it, but it's short, and like I keep re-iterating, it's not finished.. From the very beginning it starts foreshadowing an ending you will never reach, a move up through the ship toward the command section that never gets completely out of engineering, so it's part 1 of a 4 or 5 part story that barely gets started.

They came around, due to the outrage on the forums and eventually put in a super-brief, cinematic excuse for an ending, but it's still not what was advertised and does nothing to bring a conclusion to the story that the game starts.

I want to like it, but all I can feel about this game is ripped off.

At less than $5, I'd say go ahead and give it a try if you can like this sort of game, but more than that is horribly over priced for this short teaser of a game that never will be.

Dark Matter starts out promising, a 2.5D Metroid like platformer with good looking visuals and a Dead Space kind of story and athmosphere. Unfortunatly not long after you start to make your way towards freedom and escape the horrors on the space ship the cracks start to show.

Though the visuals do look good with some really nice lighting effects there are some ugly bugs that pop up here and there, and i'm not talking about the purple ones that actually look more cute that terifying , i'm talking the kind where you jump and your character suddenly glitches half way up a few stacked up crates, not to mention falling through elevator floors and down to the bottom of the shaft. Animations also seem to be missing here and there and i don't know what is wrong with my character but she seems to have been roughly cut out of a magazine with blunt scissors.

The story is alright, as far as trapped-on-a-alien-infested-spaceship stories go, but there have been numerous times where i found the ship's AI dialogue to be un-computer-like and even annoying. He quickly begins to sound whiny and needy and you just want him to shut up. Maybe i'm missing some big twist about the AI actually being human or something but i don't think so, i just think it's "méh'' writing.

But when it comes to gameplay and controls that is what finally just made me lose my will to play on and put down my controller to move on to something else. I will give credit to the idea of when to use the flashlight and when not to use it, but this feature doesn't feel as fleshed out and interesting as it could have been, and that actually goes for the whole game. The controls couldn't have saved it even if they worked properly. They feel slightly awkward and unpolished and even broken at times, to the point where i have to use my mouse to be able to click on a elevator button because my character isn't able to reach it when i use a controller for some reason. Perhaps the game plays better with mouse and keyboard, the options menu and inventory screen certainly seemed to think so, but i have lost all interest to even care by this point and i have already moved on to enjoy Deadlight, another 2.5D platformer that does most, if not all, things mentioned above right.

But if after watching Alien or playing Dead Space you still feel the need on surviving on a hostile spaceship and the new Alien: Isolation is above your budget then by all means, give Dark Matter a go, just be sure to play it with keyboard + mouse and to get it while it's on sale.



There is one other thing, that i can't really complain about for i haven't finished the game, but i've heard people complain about the game not being finished or just suddenly ending. Now i don't know what the truth about this is but the developer has said that there might be more Dark Matter to come in the future that will continue the story, in other words they are saying it's episodic. That is all fine and dandy but have failed to see that mentioned anywhere on the game's store page. Frankly i think the developer has realized that his product isn't finished and is using the episodic idea as damage control. But hey, that's just what i think, someone who sadly didn't enjoy the game as much as i wanted to and didn't even care enough anymore to finish it. I just hope that the people that did manage to enjoy it get a proper and honest end to this game's story.

I was looking for a cheap 2.5D side scroller that I could play using my gamepad just to unwind with.
Sadly I chose Dark Matter. It's gamepad controls are so clunky that I had to switch to Mouse & Keyboard.
Which defeats the purpose of why I purchased this in the first place.
Also you cannot play in windowed mode because it's a black screen. This game must be played in Fullscreen.
The resolution options are extreamly limited.

Dark Matter is a 2D shooter with a dark and hostile environment and nostalgic gameplay that sort of reminds me of the classic Metroid games.

First off, the story is very interesting and I immediately felt a connection with the characters. The introductory scene and narration had me aching for more right off the bat and the rest of the story does not disappoint!

As for the gameplay, it is fluid and smooth for the most part. The only exception being that sprinting and jumping seem unresponsive at times (mostly when trying to jump over enemies or around them), which honestly doesn't affect the gameplay all that much, it's just a bit disappointing when it happens.

The difficulty is perfect aside from an overabundance of resources in the beginning which allows for a ridiculous amount of health packs.. but I guess I can understand this decision because most of the damage taken and deaths occur from huge damage spikes or traps that insta-kill, so it doesn't have too big of an impact.

I also loved the music and ambient sounds. They did a terrific job of complimenting that dark and hostile environment I was talking about and helped to create an immersive experience.

All in all, Dark Matter is a pretty good game and I had fun playing through it. I would recommend it, especially to fans of Metroid and Deadspace. I felt that it had an undeniable resemblance to these titles while maintaining it's own unique style.

Thanks for reading!

Weiß nicht so recht was ich zu dem Spiel schreiben soll. Ich versuche es mal. Gute Idee, halbfertiger Eindruck, weil Levelaufbau komplett aber Gegner sind Mangelware. Man latscht ewig durch finstere Gänge mit Taschenlampe. Die Beleuchtung als Teil der Lösung des Spiels wird groß angepriesen und kommt aber selten zur Geltung. Man kann fast nie die Möglichkeiten nutzen, wegen der fehlenden Gegner. Die Level bzw, die Gänge sind ein bisschen langweilig gestaltet. Mehr Abwechslung täte dem Spiel auch ganz gut. "Bosse" sucht man vergebens. Die Königin ist ein Witz. Ressourcen braucht man höchstens für Medikits oder wenn man an ein/zwei Stellen genötigt wird besondere Munition zu verwenden. Ansonsten kommt man mit der Pistole und deren unendlicher Mun durch das gesamte Spiel. Das ist nicht gerade einfallsreich.

Insgesamt würde ich trotz des Angebotes von 5€ keine Kaufempfehlung abgeben. Schaut lieber den Trailer, der zeigt das Beste. Mehr gibt es auch im Spiel nicht wiklich zu sehen. Schade, schade.

Wer SF mag und eine düstere Horror-Atmosphäre kombiniert mit feinsten sound und spaciger Musik wird hier sicher auf seine Kosten kommen. Ein einfach bis mittelschweres Spiel, nicht nur für zwischendurch. Die Physik ist klasse und selbst nach brenzligen Situationen bleibt die Spannung erhalten. Klasse ist auch, daß man Sachen zerstören und Dinge herstellen kann. Die Story ist auf jeden fall nicht ermüdend! Top!

The chilling introductory narrative was what really drew my interest in the game, but indeed like many reviews say, it's sadly not a particularly good game. Most of this has to do with it being incomplete; what you do have is a bit light, if shallow, in substance and ends rather abruptly before it gets anywhere particularly interesting and memorable.

With another year or two in development, this would have really come around to be a good, memorable title. It set the stage for an engrossing sci-fi horror story. I was most impressed with the narrative. I was drawn in. Almost enamoured. But overall I felt rather let down, even after the ending sequence was later added to the game as a free update.
Perhaps they can give it another shot in the future, or this would translate better as a book.

Alien design, sound, and visuals - was all fairly average. But I won't really get into it - upon some reflection, I don't really know if this is even worth reviewing, considering it's not clearly not a finished, or ready, product. And with that said, it's probably not worth buying or spending time on. It's a real shame I am saying this.

If you haven't already, stop and take a moment to enjoy what I consider to be the best part about this game - the opening cinematic trailer, right here on Steam. Then move on and look for something else.

"Where is the promising atmosphere/game?"

Dark Matter could've been a great sci-fi 2.5D sidescroll shooter adventure, but it just isn't.

Pros:
+ nice graphics
+ nice lightning
+ okay sounds
+ the idea

Cons:
- the implementation
- movement & shooting is clunky
- bad alien character "look"
- missing atmosphere
- camera perspective too close
- no spoken/audio logs
- the look of the interfaces
- story absolutely didn't catch me
- have a look into the forums (before buying) ;)

I just don't want to play any longer, although I am a big sci-fi & sidescroll shooter fan!

v. 1.1: I'm sad that this is not the full game, slightly overpriced for a 4 hour gameplay game, I encounter some bugs during gameplay, untested game pushed for release makes me lose hope on any future sequels of current game.

This game is awful, I'm so glad they added a review option so I can warn others...

First off its very buggy, so that makes the awful counter intuitive puzzle elements even more annoying; then you add the frustrating uninspired combat system and you end up with one of the worst games I've played in a long time...really amateurish in the worst possible way.

After purchasing this game and getting close to the end -- it came to light that the end doesn't exist -- most of the weapons you see in the game aren't accessible and after a bunch of backlash the developers admitted that they ran out of money and only finished a third of the game... So if you want to play 'episode 1' with no episode 2 or 3... buy away...

The game which was pulled off the Steam store the day after I bought it because it turned out to be pretty much incomplete. Yeah, I don't recommend buying this. Even if it now has an ending, the game is still not very good. Clunky controls, poor animations and repetitive gameplay make this a VERY hard sell. If you can get it at a "throwaway money" discount then maybe give it a chance, but it's definitely not worth the full asking price. It's just not very good on top of all the clandestine nonsense which went on when it first popped up.
