Every now and then I come across games like Constant C, games I really like but yet my puzzle solving skills do not allow me to progress any further in game. So what do I do? I go on Youtube and watch a walkthrough or a let's play from where I stopped playing until the end, and that's what I did with Constant C.
It got to the point that the amount of time and dedication I needed to put into this in order to succeed in various levels were just too much for me, I don't mind playing games that are hard by nature, but when it involves timing certain actions with precision, I just can't do it. Call me weak, whatever -.-
In Constant C you play as an emergency robot that was made in the event of a failed scientific experiment. The game is a great platformer with a very unique mechanic, around your character there's this "bubble" and inside that bubble time happens. Well, this actually sounds weird but the plot of Constant C is that a science investigation on a space station unleashed some kind of anomaly that stopped time and it is by using this bubble device that you can actually make anything in the game. You might see a box in mid air a few meters away but once it gets inside your bubble it will react to gravity. Besides this you also have to manipulate gravity in order to get through the levels. The levels are filled with deadly traps and crates that you must use in order to survive those traps. Most of the levels takes some time to get used and figure out what you exactly need to do in order to succeed, and this was what frustrated me the most, I was just taking too long to figure out the later levels. You can select which level you want to play in a room, which you might call it a "hub", and that's where the AI that is your friend and that is helping you is located. In various levels you'll find "data tubes" which will serve to unlock later levels and pieces of video that tell you a bit of what happened in the space station when all the scientists were alive.
Eitherway, Constant C has a very unique atmosphere to it but the art style reminds me of Stealth Bastard Deluxe so if you've played that you know what to expect. If I had to criticize one thing about the game, besides the fact that I found it immensely frustrating, was the fact that I didn't really liked the music but you might do. In the end, you can't go wrong with Constant C if you're a fan of the genre, you should totally get it and play it, if you end up getting mad, like myself, just give it some time or do what I did and watch some vids if you're curious about how the story unfolds.
