About the Game

You were on the way to a recycling process when fortunately for you - and unfortunately for the environment - you accidentally ran off.

Now your goal is to escape from the facility, which is an extremely difficult task due to the fact that you are a battery without legs. Equipped with a limited number of electric beams, you can connect to walls, move or destroy objects, turn switches, and charge generators.
You also have the ability to jump or push off the walls - the rest is up to physics and gravity.

Key features:

- puzzle platformer with a lot of explosions
- super-fun gameplay mechanics
- over 60 levels divided into 4 industrial-themed zones
- boss stages
- unlockable 16-bit levels
- unlockable batteries
- unlimited lives !

Volt is a pretty good game, in my opinion. It's definitely not the best game i've played this year, or even this month for that matter, but for the price of six dollars (or your regional equivalent), I think it's a wonderful deal. While the story isn't really important to a game like this, the gameplay is, and in my opinion the gameplay is very good in Volt. The game works in a physics based way. You move by attaching beams of electricity to your surroundings, and letting gravity do the rest. I personally do not typically like it when games do this, but I feel like Volt did it very well. The difficulty is also right. At the time of writing this review, I am on the 16th stage of level 1, and the difficulty is already starting to become noticable. It will probably take someone quite a few attempts on each level to be able to beat the game. Also, the puzzles are not really explained to you. This may deter some people, but I think that it allows players to figure out many different ways to solve puzzles. The music is pretty good. It seems to fit the gameplay very well, but it doesn't really add a whole lot to the package. The art, however, is very good. The colors that were used really manage to pull off the industrial theme, and they add emphasis to important things by making those things stick out with brighter colors. The controls are not as good as I would like them to be though. The game works completely with the mouse. To break the beams, you hold the lmb and drag it. This seems kind of finicky to me, because sometimes it seems to cut the wrong beam, or both beams. The rest of the controls seem to work just fine. Overall, I would say that Volt is a very good game, that is worth the price that they are asking for it.

It's difficult not recommending Volt, the gameplay is solid, and while I feel it's a bit more choppy that I would like it's still very satisfying when you nail some tricky, optimized maneuver. Basically, it's fancy Cut the Rope. You extend lazor grapple beams, and cut them by dragging scross the beams. Additionally, you can bounce off the group, which leads to some pretty fun fall-jump-swing-cut-swing portions.

The only thing that's really frustrated me so far is no explaination of new elements. There's a -short- tutorial explaining the basic rope mechanics and then nothing so even if you're doing well you'll run into something new you don't know how to work with, and usually you have to experiement a few times before figuring out how to deal with it.

Volt. The Name of the Game where you swing a Battery around to free himself from a Factory before it's crushed or zapped to pieces.

I bought this game on gut Instinct. (Plus I love to support Indie companies in anyway I can whether it be through a showing during one of my Youtube videos, Or just writing them a message saying How much I loved the game.)

Upon writing this I have reached level 15 in the game and the difficulty as stated as started picking up but the game Is so cool in its own way from the chosen graphics to even the way to make some leaps of faith when swinging back and forth (of course avoiding getting cut up by buzzsaws or getting electricuted to death by yellow charged floors and ceilings)

This game is simple to control and just alot of fun for $5. Not the greatest game on the market, but one game to just help you unwind and really relax playing. (Of course maybe a couple spots you could be using a certain word or two from its rising difficulty.)

Definite Buy for me, and I hope it's one for you too!

Really nice graphics and a wonderful game concept which is quite addictive (once you've been playing for a few minutes).

It's fun to play most of the time, but the controls for it are basic and sometimes get frustrating. Sometimes It'll shoot two of the electrical-voltage-line things instead of one, and quite often doesn't know whether you want to shoot or cut the voltage line. Sometimes them errors can help make the goal more difficult to reach, but other times it just gets annoying.

Overall, It's a great game and I would recommend it, but I think the controls need to be fixed for it to be more fun or less frustrating.
