Reviews

“what stands out here is that it’s smart. For a first time project, it’s impressively smart. And almost immediately very tricky”
Rock, Paper, Shotgun

“There is something so lovable about Zeb, not because you know his backstory, because you don’t, not because of his charming words, because he doesn’t speak but because this game invokes the same sense of childish accomplishment and joy that came with a bygone era of games.”
Ordinary Gamer

“Plazma Being lives up to its core as a Puzzle-Platformer title; as a challenging puzzle game.”

About This Game

Take control of Zeb in this puzzle/platformer. He is a small energy based life form from space, known as a Plazma Being. While journeying through space to his home, Zeb was surprised to find that he was being kidnapped by aliens. They took him back to their planet and unceremoniously threw him into captivity. During this time a series of earthquakes shook the planet and wreaked havoc upon the alien civilization, but gave Zeb a chance to escape.

Follow Zeb as he travels across the planet's surface in search of a space ship which will give him the means to get back to his beloved cold vacuum of space, as he confronts strange creatures and robots and as he uses his unique energy powers to overcome obstacles.

The game features 10 puzzle/platforming filled levels spread out between 3 different environments.

Short and sweet. Had a couple of bugs but nothing major. Worth the small price.

A small fine platformer puzzle game created by 1 dev!

+ It brings back the basics of puzzles.
+ Has a little story.
+ The art and music has it own style and fit together.
+ Puzzles can be solved in different ways and are not to difficult.
+ New abilities can be unlocked.

- Only 10 levels. Would be great if some more levels exist where you need to use your different abilities.

First of all, beware of the spoilers in the video and screenshots on the store page. I didn't watch the video until after I played the game, and I was amazed at how many solutions to puzzles that it contained. Now onto the review.

This game was a hidden gem for me. I was in the mood for a game that I could comfortably play in a weekend. I liked the idea and the look of the graphics of this, so I gave it a shot. I ended up enjoying this far more than I thought I would. It also took a bit longer to play than I was expecting, but that was mostly due to me getting stuck on a couple of puzzles. I got a great sense of satisfaction when I did figure out the solutions, and they always felt reasonable and logical. If I stopped playing and came back to it later with a fresh set of eyes, most of the solutions seemed obvious.

Generally the game is all about using your brain to solve puzzles, but there some parts that test your platforming skills. It had a good progression of adding abilities to keep the levels fresh. It was impressive how well the puzzles were made to use all the abilities, and even at one stage had a puzzle based on the sound made when selecting the different abilities. Some people have complained about the short length of the game, but I don't think that adding any more levels would have resulted in any new type of puzzle. I was quite happy with the way the game ended.

Performance on low-end systems
The game plays perfectly on my netbook powered by a 1GHz dual core AMD C-50 processor at 1024x600 (below the minimum spec). The minimum resolution is 800x600 (why don't system requirements ever state this) and it supports windowed mode. It also worked surprisingly well using a trackpad instead of a mouse, although I did my full play through on my desktop system so I only tested the trackpad on the first few levels.

This game gets very difficult very quickly and to the point it will probably put you off playing. A real shame as it looked very promising. Still though the price is good so what the hell give it a go see what you think.

If you want a nice puzzle platformer with some story, not too long, and also you can live with fact that it is an indie game, so graphically not the best (but great mechanics in the game, and gameplay > graphics), also if it is on sale (-75% = 1,25 euros), go for it, you can spend nice 3-4 hours in this game (3,3 hours is my game time, i've completed whole game and also achievements in that time :) but i really love these kind of game, so i have an advantage :) ). Is it hardcore platformer? No, but some parts can be, especially last level, with boss. Is it hardcore puzzle game? Not really, but again, some puzzles can be harder, and you have to work with gravitation and game's physics. Is it worth 5 euros? I think yes, i've enjoyed this game, and the only con is graphics (not really my cons, as i prefer gameplay, not graphics :) ).

You can move objects, pin objects, rotate objects. Fun with lasers, too. Got it in a bundle and had to use my ruler at the end of level 3. It´s a challenging, but - due to its precise controls - a very fair game.

I got this in a bundle and for the 29 cents US I paid, it was fun.

Think of it as a very simple, single entity (dual personality) version of Trine. Very much so in that the Thief swinging mechanic and the Wizard telekinesis mechanic are extremely similar. Death is back to the last checkpoint and there are alot of them so the frustration factor is a little lower, despite some tricky spots.

It is shorter than Trine and at times a bit more of a grind, but it is a decent and very underplayed game.

At 4.99 it is hard to justify, perhaps 4.5/10, but in a bundle (and it has been 6 times according to Enhanced Steam), it is an easy 7/10.

Only 2-3 hours of gameplay, the controls are a bit unintuitive, twitchy, and difficult to master, and it's not particularly exciting. In addition, recognition of which objects can be interacted with in which ways is very difficult, leaving an average player quietly perplexed with the lacking game design.

But the mechanics are solid, and a few of the puzzles are quite elegant and satisfying to solve. Imagine starting out on a simple platformer, having the powers of the wizard in Trine. Later you gain the Trine thief's grappling hook, and a limited ability to teleport into certain objects. None of these additional powers are explored to their full potential.

I give it a positive review because it's worth playing around with, if only for the unique feel of the game and its combination of mechanics. However this game has a lot of wasted potential. If the developer were to come out with additional, more complex puzzles, with better level design, and more variety to the environmental mechanics, or open it up to user-created levels somehow, it could be a beautiful thing, a la 2D Portal.

Awesome and cute little game with only 10 levels, but very fulfilled ones. For one indie game, it has good physics. As I said, it's little short, but not so hard for achievement hunters. It has my positive review, because I really enjoyed playing it.

I have played this prior to its release on steam and put a good number of hours on the desura version. It is one of the better indie games that i have played in a while. A puzzle based platformer with mouse control. It is well worth 5 dollars and strongly recommend it at a sale price. I am also looking forward to the Dev's next game "Systematic Immunity" Which is on steam greenlight now.
Graphics are good, puzzles are great, I wish that it was controlled with xbox 360 controller but the game really doesn't easily lend itself to that.

+ Great little physics based puzzler
+ Interesting mechanics and level design

~ Pretty bland level artwork
~ Loads of potential for future expansion
~ Some replay value

- Only 10 levels and pretty easy
- No option to speed up text

A really solid indie physics puzzler with loads of room to grow (in mechanics and levels) should the creators choose. Right now it's a fun ride for an hour or two but little replay value.

Conclusion: 6/10. A good start, needs more content.
