About This Game

Vitrum is a 3D, first person, puzzle/platform game. The main character is an android designed to convert energy from crystals into powers. The android can absorb energy in each of his hands, allowing him to combine different powers. One of the coolest powers is the ability to invert the gravity, because it’s 3d and because the player can freely choose when and where to use it! Vitrum takes place in a desert laboratory full of different colored crystals. Some crystals grant powers, others are harmful to the android.

The player will have to figure out how to use the crystals, solve the puzzles and finish each stage in Vitrum. Features:

- Stage editor
- More than 45 stages.
- Collect crystal shards to unlock Insane stages.
- Each crystal color represents a power, explore each color and discover every power the android can execute.
- Combine powers to solve more difficult puzzles.
- Explore 3D gravity inversion, materialization of crystal platforms, super high jumps and other powers.

This game had great potential, and I really liked the idea, but I ended up disliking the game as I progressed. It seems like at later levels they stopped focusing on the puzzle aspect of the game, and started to focus on platforming and skill jumps instead. To me, once you understand how to beat a level in a puzzle game, it should take a couple of tries max to beat the level. This is best seen in Portal. Some of you probably think its not fair to compare the two games, but in reality they have very similar concepts. In Vitrum, however, I often found myself extremely frustrated at my inability to complete a level that I knew how to beat. Don't get me wrong, I like platforming just as much as the next guy, but this game takes it too far for my tastes. Almost every level includes some sort of difficult jump that made it difficult to beat. This is the type of stuff that I would liked to have known before buying it. If you like platforming, then go ahead and buy it, If not, stay away.

The first thing one might notice is that this game seems extremely similar to two other first person puzzler games, at least that was what i though at first glance. But i figured that just because it clones other games doesn't make it automaticaly bad, so i went ahead and bought vitrum anyway.

I started up the game and was greeted by a really ugly, amateurish and lofi menu screen that just screamed college project. But i put my prejudices against its visuals aside and went ahead and started a level.
The framerate was terrible despite of running on a powerful machine so i had to search the forums for a fix. i found a couple of possible solutions, none of which worked. So i was just going to have to accept the ♥♥♥♥ty framerate and play it anyway.

What i first noticed was that the sound effects were really tinny, But that the music was really great. (I would actually like to get my hands on the soundtrack) and then that the level design was pretty decent. with some relaxing puzzles with intresting powers involved.
then at about level 10-15 it started to go downhill, the levels became inconsistent and less clever, the game started to go for a more platformy approach. but this was fine with me however as i like platformers too. but let's just say that platforming design isn't vitrums strongest feature.

And at about level 20 (i think) the game started to slowly become a hellish precision platformer with power crystals less and less frequent. And it wasn't the good kind of precision platformer in my opinion. as the amount of precision (and sometimes even luck) required was at ridiculous levels. the checkpoints weren't generous either.
it kind of reminded me of counter strike's death run mod. in which victory is a sight rarely seen. i also found myself having no clue on where to go and what to do. but this may be my own fault however.
I came to a point were the platforming became too frustrating for me to endure, so i stopped playing there.

So all in all i do not recommend this game, if i would describe it in one phrase it would be "Student project"

I will just start off quickly by saying only pay for if you have a high end pc. With mine, it lags and that's because the game does'nt believe in dumping unnessary things, things that are no longer needed so only pay if the game is on sale.

I really like puzzle games. I have portal and play games that require much expeirence and tallant in jumping and making the right moves. One small wrong move would send you back to the beginning of that session or entire map so every move is important in other words.

This game has waht I want but it seems very bugged. When making a patch of ice from the blue crystals, you can only make them to you're character's chest level and down to you're feet. When jumping, not every move like the super jump (what you get from red crystals) can be made while doing a jump. I noticed at times when standing on the edge of the dangerous crystals that can kill you if you stand at a certain point, they won't harm you unless you go any further.

A bit laggy for me but the concept is cool. You can have up to two powers at one to help you navigate the puzzles. The controls are pretty easy to get used to. I suggest the trying the demo version first.

Enjoyable for the most part. While Vitrum dosn't do much it does what it does well and mainly focuses on it's mechanics. It's got some well designed puzzles and a easy to use level editor letting those with a creative side make their own. For more info on the game, check out my vid on it.

Okay so, at first game idea is nice, music is also okay, sometimes gets bit annoying thru, because the basses and stuff. Not my taste music.

Anyways, I missed advanced video settings, because somehow strange thing happens with this game. I mean monitor stuff, bubbles around hand when u have crystals taken move like on 60fps, but gameplay itself lags as ♥♥♥♥, tried lowest and highest settings and it still lags absolutely the same. That is a mistery.

Btw, levels could have better design too, I mean so far I passed, it is all been the same, just different structure.

I don't really like puzzle games, except Portal and this game actually have something in common wth portal in my opinion, so I will recommend it. I don't thin lag is my computer hardware problem, maybe bad optimization. Anyways, 10 € bit too much, if you will get it for less and you like puzzle games, be free to try!

Interesting game. Has some glitches and sometimes I can't figure out which door opened when I pressed something. Could use some more checkpoints in levels as well. Die and you have to do the entire level over again, so far only found 1 checkpoint in the game. Level editor sounds interesting yet I haven't tried it yet. Could potentially result in some pretty neat stuff.

Not the most exciting game ever, but it's cool.
