The idea of Solar Flux is to collect plasma particles and bring them back to sun to equalize its energy. Object seems easy, but add to this asteroids, limited fuel, solar bursts and short time. Just imagine collapsing sun... to stabilize the whole process it's important to be quick and deliver plasma energy as quick as possible. Steering is a little bit tricky and depends on recoil force of ship's thrusters. 4 different galaxies, many different stars.

Solar Flux is a relatively simple puzzle game that makes its mark via pleasing aesthetics, well designed soundscapes, and its quasi-innovative gameplay mechanics. Most people who generally enjoy the genre of “puzzlers” will probably be able to enjoy it; it can appeal to both casual gamers and those who thirst for a good challenge.

The game can essentially be played in two ways. Simply beating each level is not a daunting task, and, coupled with the ambient music and pretty art style, can provide a gameplay experience that is peaceful and “zen.” Anyone who may enjoy a nice, serene game experience can find one here.

Alternatively, if you are someone who wants to achieve 3-star ratings on every level to unlock all the achievements, then this game can provide a quite challenging and enjoyable task. Be warned, however, if you are someone who would want to aim for 3-star ratings, then you should be aware that there are a few levels that may cross the threshold from challenging to frustrating. That said, I personally felt Solar Flux was mostly fair, and properly challenging, and I believe most people will find it to be as well.

The beautiful graphics and fitting soundscape are definitely the strongest positives of the game. The controls are fluid, but may take some time to get accustomed to. The tutorial sufficiently explains everything you will need to understand in order to beat the game, although some levels will require understanding deeper mechanics to 3-star. There are plenty of levels and a decent amount of variety, despite the fact that the levels don’t really evolve much as you progress through the game.

Solar Flux should have a level of substance and quality that can appeal to most people who are fans of the genre. It isn’t the most profoundly innovative puzzle game out there, but it certainly offers gameplay marginally different than most games which share the genre. Bonus points for anyone who can appreciate the aesthetics and may be a fan of celestial bodies.

Meh...can't we at least get a 'mixed' opinion instead of a thumbs up or down on this one? :-\


I thumbed it down, but it is really not without merit. The thing is: you can easily see the good points of this game. Visuals are decent and it has a good atmospheric music to go with it. And even the controls are okay...perhaps even decent.

What it doesn't tell you is that it's hard. Extremely hard. To the point of insanity, even. Sure, quite some portion of that is me being not good at lunar landing kind of games. As such, this isn't the first of this sort of game I've just quit because I can't avoid one insta-death astroid without setting a deadly course to the second.
The thing is: where games like solar 2 and osmos accept this difficulty of steering and don't get overboard with other things, solar flux adds more layers of frustratingly hard stuff. Stay too close to a sun and your shield melts away. Most levels have flares to pick up while traversing through insta-death asteroids, which means you have to do a pretty much perfect run. Some suns tend to explode, so there's that that may send you off into an object or deep space. Others have timers or require you to set a path you can barely see from your starting position.
Oh, and you have limited ammo, so better use it wisely (which is in most levels 'close to none', as you have to time your flare-to-sun injections perfectly so the resulting explosion sends you of to where you actually want to go).

Now don't get me wrong: I like hard games, and to a degree, it certainly is challenging. But I feel quite some of the difficulty should've been reserved for a hard mode (like the limited fuel and shields). Or that there'd be an easy mode without those things. And if recent hard games have learned us anything, it's that the levels should be short (which is, admittedly, more or less the case here) and shouldn't hinder the player. That's certainly an issue. After a crash, it insists on a showing a 'you crashed' message where you have to click to restart, and even then it insists on repeating the objective every freakin' time.

So in the end, I'm thumbing it down because this really shouldn't be your first space sim. The difficulty curve is, IMHO, just too high. It should be okay (and perhaps even great) to those who fully mastered the movement of games like osmos and are looking for something harder. For anyone else, I'm sorry, but I'd always advise those games first. :-(

Another game in the long list of brilliant post-2008 indie outings. Solar Flux has minimalist, yet aesthetically very pleasing visuals, a good soundscape, simple and tight controls, and a gameplay that's reasonably difficult when you go for just completion, and fiendish at places when you plan to achieve 3 stars in all scenarios.

Just one detail to add - many of the obscure-looking 3-star challenges actually have very elegant solutions.

Highly recommended!

This is a very well designed game, in means of visuals and sound. The story is simple but the whole atmosphere and ever increasing difficulty just keeps you engaged for a long time. The story might be simple but the obstacles and extra conditions that you have to consider for a better score, might make you replay over and over.

If you like well designed original puzzle games, and a fan of space stuff, this title will appease your urges.
