Ce spun criticii

“is the kind of game that many will look over because they think they’ve played things like it hundreds of times before. It’s not. This is a project filled with incredibly smart puzzle design and an important message at its core. Anyone who absentmindedly picked it up during a sale should do themselves a favor and play right now. If you don’t yet own it, then definitely consider making a purchase in the near future. Nihilumbra is a thoroughly enjoyable experience that will stick with you. (4.5/5)”

“The whole game is great, but for me the presentation takes Nihilumbra from being a fun and clever indie game to something really special. Its presentation rivals games like Braid and Limbo. Everything looks hand drawn and a bit ethereal, a mix between a Tim Burton movie and a Jhonen Vasquez comic. The visuals are complemented by an orchestral score that’s just Danny Elfman enough, and narration that is very well voiced for the story. The tone of the game is serious, and the presentation really supports that rather than undermining it and making it come off as silly.”

“Nihilumbra shines brightest here (Void Mode). Where the story merely hints at the potential of behind its mechanics, Void Mode demonstrates their genius. It brings out Nihilumbra’s best levels, testing your mettle while retaining the game’s penchant for easily understood puzzles. The mode tests you without employing opaque logic, making you reexamine how you approach problem solving. Plus, there’s even a couple story hooks that bring some additional closure, thus sweetening the deal. (4.5/5)”

Despre joc

Discover the beautiful world of Nihilumbra and join Born on his adventure to find himself whilst trying to escape from his inevitable curse.
Born was created from the absolute nothingness: The Void. But somehow he separates himself from the black emptiness and appears in the world. This is where his long odyssey begins, in which he will learn how to use the colors around him to gain powerful abilities and transform the world.

However, his experiences come at a high price. The Void must be one. It seeks to reclaim him and will never stop chasing him, destroying everything in its path along the way.
To survive, Born will have to condemn the earth he walks to its inevitable obliteration by The Void...

Advise: Nihilumbra has been designed in a way that everyone can enjoy its story, even without previous experience with puzzle games. However, players seeking for a challenge will find it on the second half of the game: the Void Mode.

Nihilumbra, un joc care a facut furori pe iOS a fost lansat in sfarsit si pe PC, prin intermediul platformei Steam. Creat de spaniolii de la Beautifun Games, Nihilumbra este un platformer care a fost votat unul dintre cele mai bune jocuri pe iOS in 2012. Odata ♥♥ portare pe PC, jocul dispune acum de texturi HD, dialoguri inregistrate si redate ♥♥ ajutorul actorilor si o suport complet pentru tastatura.


Povestea

Beautifun Games te invita sa cunosti lumea frumoasa din Nihilumbra, luand in maini soarta lui Born, o creatura nascuta din nimic (the Void) si care ia rapid o forma umanoida si isi incepe aventura, incercand sa scape din intuneric pentru a se alatura lumii adevarate. Spatiu denumit The Void (Nimicul) incearca sa-l opreasca din drumul sau si e tot timpul pe urmele sale, incercand sa-l asimileze, trimitand monstrii ci punand capcane in calea sa. Born va invata sa foloseasca culorile din jurul sau pentru a prinde puteri noi si a schimba lumea din jurul sau.

Libertatea sa are totusi un pret. Intunericul il vrea inapoi si nu se va opri de la nimic pentru a-l recapata, inghitind astfel intreaba lume in urma lui Born.


Gameplay

Nihilumbra este un platformer plin de puzzle-uri, realizat in totalitate in 2D. Personajul nostru se deplaseaza de la stanga spre dreapta, incercand sa scape de Intunericul care il urmareste. Jucatorul are la dispozitie 5 abilitati date de anumite culori pe care le intalneste. Fiecare nivel trecut deblocheaza o anumita abilitate, iar la nivele superioare, doar combinarea acestor abilitati va putea rezolva puzzle-urile ♥♥ care ai de-a face.

Cele cinci culori sunt: albastru- care transforma structura pamantului, facandu-l alunecos (ca gheata), verde, care face ca obiectele sa devina elastice si sa sara, maro, care transforma pamantul facandu-l lipisios, si, prin urmare, acesta va deveni mai greu de parcurs, rosu care aprinde obiectele din jur si galben, care transforma obiectele in conductoare electrice. Asadar, Nihilumbra are in total 5 nivele de joc single-player, iar dupa terminarea acestora jucatorul poate opta pentru Void Mode, un mod de joc care ii va permite sa rejoace le 5 niveluri, insa ♥♥ un set nou de incercari si puzzle-uri.

Ca orice platformer care se respecta, Nihilumbra are un nivel de dificultate destul de ridicat. Puzzle-urile sunt dificile, dar nu imposibile. Jucatorul va trebui sa-si foloseasca mintea pentru a scapa din unele situatii dificile, iar cele 5 niveluri normale dureaza aproximativ 3 ore, pentru un gamer care poseda cat de cat experienta. Nivelul suplimentar (Void Mode) este insa mult mai antrenant, iar ca sa il treci ve iavea nevoie de mai mult timp. Beautifun Games v-au asigurat asadar cam 10 ore de gameplay intens pentru acest joc.

In plus, Nihilumbra beneficiaza pe Steam de 24 de Realizari si de Carti de Schimb, lucruri excelente si bine venite pentru un joc nou.

Grafica si sunet

Grafica adoptata de Beautifun Games pentru Nihilumbra e simpla, dar in ton ♥♥ nivelul. Nivelul ♥♥ gheata are o tenta albastra, cel ♥♥ foc o tenta rosie. Caracterul personal, Born se naste ca un bob, si isi schimba infatisarea in functie de ce personaje intalneste, pentru a se adapta lumii exterioare. Primul lucru intalnit este insa o sperietoare, iar Born ia infatisare umanoida. Inamicii sai sunt si ei bine conturati, de la flori care arunca proiectile, la serpi care inghit culorile pe care le prind inaintea ta.

La sfarsitul nivelelor cand intunericul vine inspre tine si tu trebuie sa fugi, viteza e destul de mare si modelele HD sunt bine definite. Din pacate, la aceasta viteza meniurile sunt greu de folosit, iar de multe ori te vei enerva ca nu apuci sa-ti alegi culoarea potrivita la timp.

Nihilumbra beneficiaza de o coloana sonora buna, iar tonalitatea se schimba in functie de tipul actiunii, lucru bun pentru joc. In plus, in versiunea de pe PC, toata coloana sonora a fost refacuta, sunetele sunt mai clare si melodiile mai bine realizate.

Concluzie

icon_512x512@2xChiar daca pe dispozitivele mobile Nihilumbra a fost unul din cele mai aclamate jocuri, pe PC concurenta este mai serioasa si jocurile platformer nu sunt asa de populare. Produsul celor de la Beautifun Games are sincopele celorlalte jocuri din aceasi categorie, in sensul ca multora le-ar fi placut mai multa actiune si o poveste mai elaborata. Totusi, din punct de vedere calitativ, pentru categopria sa de joc, Nihilumbra poate fi comparat ♥♥ Limbo, poate chiar il intrece. Grafica e buna, povestea la fel, chiar daca este pe alocuri prea sumbra poate, iar sunetul este OK. Nihilumbra arata si se misca bine; este probabil cel mai bun joc portat de pe telefon pe PC pe care l-am jucat pana acum. Iata deci ♥♥♥ l-am notat:

Underrated magic

This game is amazing, really. It's a small life, which the player lives with the Born. A life full of danger, fear, regret and melancholy.
When the game takes you by the hand the only thing you can say is "WOW! this world is beautiful!" And the game does not release you until the final credits. And the only thing you can say after all is "What have I done, I have to fix it ..."

Escaping from the void, trying to become more than you are and risking the world you seek in order to do so. This is the story of Nihilumbra, a puzzle based 2D platformer from Beautifun Games.

The game follows a vey narrative series of events travelling from the cold Icy hills through the forest, the desert, the volcano and finally to the city. Each location brings with it new challenges and a new skill to brave them. These skills come in the forms of colours, paints that can be spread around the environment at will. The first colour you obtain is blue, allowing the creation of ice. Then comes the green followed by the brown, creating bouncy and sticky surfaces respectively. From the volcano comes red, the ability to burn some things and supercharge others. Finally there is yellow, the ability to create conductive lines to transfer power from energy sources to unpowered machines. It's the combination of all of these that will let you progress and aid in your escape from the void.

The gameplay is well established as you play, with a "tutorial" for each new colour. The levels are relatively easy on the first play through but after finishing once there is a new "Void" version of the levels, being more difficult and involved. The controlling of the colours is intuitive and easy to do, and if you make a mistake it's just as easy to undo your moves.

The visual style is fantastic with detailed painted backgrounds and foreground objects that have a parallax effect. When applying colours it is always easy to distinguish. The soundtrack is one that is extremely well fitting and only adds to the atmosphere. The voice over is a crucial part of the game and it wouldn't be the same without it. The tone of voice is one that makes the player feel safe while traveling and discovering.

Overall the game is solid and everything seems to work as intended, some sections seem to be reliant on trial and error. There is a large difficulty curve between finishing the first playthrough and starting the second, it could have eased into it more.

It's has a good bang for your buck and the only thing I would like to see is a level editor with steam workshop integration. Other than that it's a great game.

I knew nothing about this game at the moment I bought it. Worth every penny, true hidden gem. If you like logic platformers which don`t require cat-like reflexes Nihilumbra is the game for you. Don`t play it when you are down, it`s a bit depressing.

One of my all-time favorite games. Nihilumbra is a side-scrolling puzzle game, where you control the lone protoganist, Born, guiding him through five varied realms. Born is alone, too- aside from the enemies in the game, which are few and far between, every landscape you travel through seems abandoned, deserted. It adds an apocalyptic feel to an already stark and melancholy game.

Born starts out with very few tricks up his sleeve- he can jump and move inexorably to the right, and the enemies he encounters are deadly. As you progress, though, you pick up new skills that allow you to alter the landscape around you- colors you can paint on the world to allow you to slide, bounce, stick, and more.

There's really two parts to this game- the story mode, which is relatively straight-forward but still retains a challenge, and the mode you unlock after beating the story, which is devilishly hard. The controls seemed fluid to me, though they take some getting used to- one hand moves Born, while the mouse uses the various colors to guide him along. The game rarely rushes you, and when it does, it's considerate enough to provide enough checkpoints to prevent too much repetition.

This seems to be Beautifun's Freshman game for the PC, and I am definitely looking forward to where they'll go from here.
