Monochroma is a gritty, dark little 2D platformer game about two brother who try to escape a dystopian city.
Gameplay 7 of 10
Classical 2D Jump-and-Run Game. The jumping parts are sometimes a little inaccurate and some parts are trial-and-error parts, which are a little frustrating. But never the smashing-your-controller like. When you're not jumping-and-running you have to solve little puzzles, e.g. placing crates in a way that you can cross a river with your brother .All in all quite tricky.
Story 8 of 10
You play the bigger of two brothers and have to backpack your little brother for most of the game and uncover the secret of "The Company". The mood of the game is very dystopian and bland.
Graphics 7.5 of 10
The whole game is held completely in black, white and grey colors with sparse dashes of red. It's really impressive and yes even a little bit depressing. Reminds you a little bit of Sin City. Way to go.
Music 7 of 10
There's almost no music or sound also no voice acting. Only metallic noises from the surrounding buildings and factories , raindrops on metal , this kind of stuff.
