RIVE to be final Two Tribes game

Hi all! Here's some news!

Two Tribes is retiring, RIVE will be our last game!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wQyPIHAOd98

After more than 15 years of hard work and gallons of blood, sweat and tears, we have decided that RIVE will be Two Tribes’ final game. For this occasion we've created a brand new trailer, which you can see below. Feel free to share it with your readers, friends and family.

We're committed to making RIVE the best game we've ever made, and will support it as we've always supported our games, but we won't make a new one after that.

See you in September when RIVE launches, feel free to add it to your wishlist!

Collin and Martijn.

This is a puzzle game that doesn't use harldy any puzzles. Requireing timing skill isnt the same thing as a puzzle.

You are often forced into a set path with literally nothing else you can possibly do other than what is set in front of you requiring absolutely no thought. And dont worry if there ever is something that might be tricky they will show you a "hint" of exactly what to do, every single time, so you cant possibly need to think. At best it is boring, at worst it is tedious, (requiring you to hit the same couple of switches which are right in front of you over and over again) and/or frustrating. (as you will need to perform some actions at JUST the right time)

Edge has done themself no favors by making their controls unintuative. The levels are at a 45 to the POV so "up" takes you up-right, and "left" takes you up-left. Seems simple anougha nd other games use the same concept without much trouble, and maybe im just being stupid on this one, but this game seems to continue to confuse on that till nearly the end where I gave up on it.

To make worse for themselves the controls are inconsistant. Sometimes a single tap of a key will flip your cube fully to its other face. Other times you will merely bring up the one end to begin tettering on an edge. (EDGE EDGE get it, get the joke? no dont worry they shove it in your face quite a few times. lol they're soooo funny right guys?) The controls seem all other the place, which doesnt help the frustration of the timing "puzzles".

Lastly and worst(ly) the "logic" of your cubes movemnet is inconsistant. In a game that uses platforming timeing as a puzzle, the one thing you NEED is to know what action your avatar will take at a given command. You wont find that here. On the exact same part of the same level, I put my theory to the test. I tried typing out how it doesnt work, youd have to just see it.

Suffice to say it, it was not fun.

My Rating for edge:
7: Good.

Edge is a puzzle game that provides you with a good amount of content, and serveral brain boggling puzzles, but makes me want more than what was included.

Pros:
Clever level design
over 100 levels
Simple concept
Good puzzle game

Cons:
Controls can be confusing because of the akward camera angle
Not able to change camera angle
no level editor, The game feels like it needs one

Overall, edge is a good puzzle game that is worth your time. Even without the level editor and confusing camera angle, I think edge is worth a buy.

Recommend for anyone with patience to figure out puzzles. Controls are a little too sticky, and sometimes a little too loose.

EDGE has been on my wishlist for a long time as a low requirements game to enjoy while I'm away from my desktop (Which also means I didn't plan to run it under Windows.)

Here's all I have to say: This title is no longer cross platform. Under OS X it produces a white screen with background music. There goes the entire reason I bought it. Same problem is produced in the developer's game RUSH, so it's clearly an engine issue. I reported the issues within hours of buying the games, hoping maybe they'd fix it. Nothing.

Do not buy this if you're trying to support cross platform developers.

This game is actually quite special. It feels like a platfomer but you mostly roll around on an isometric level (ie. Super Mario RPG) hitting switches and solving puzzles. The controls are really tight, allowing you you manuver this... block around.

The charm really comes from the level design, the music - everything comes together into a really slick game.

Originally developed for mobile devices, this one is updated with full resolution and frame-rate unlock support. It's really quite sharp.

Highly recommended!

EDGE

A great little puzzle game that requires quick reactions and some lateral thinking.

Rating 6/10

The main objective of EDGE is to traverse your cube through some ingenious and rather convoluted levels made up of blocks, buttons and platforms whilst avoiding all manners of death as quickly as possible. Picking up small prisms that are dotted around the level speeds up your cube and gives you a higher rating for completing a level. There is also the ability to perform 'edge time' by balancing your cube on one of it's edges which allows you to hang off the side of walls. It's a mixture of balance and timing but it rewards you with time reduction at the end of the level.

Each new level, of which there are over eighty, represents a new challenge and new gameplay mechanics, learning these new mechanics is fairly simple as there are clues along the way. Its success lies in its simplicity. Get your cube from point A to point B in the fastest time you can manage.

It can be frustrating at times and there are a couple of fiendishly tricky sequences that can verge on annoying/frustrating but it's also incredibly addictive and rewarding.

It's not a traditional puzzle game nor is it platform game, it's something in between and it's great fun.

The tag "platformer" doesn't quite fit EDGE, but neither is it a full-on puzzle game. You're not often required to make pixel-perfect jumps and leaps, but you'll need to think and react quickly to make it through levels efficiently. Likewise, there's very little traditional puzzle elements in EDGE, aside from a few button-sequence puzzles, but you will need some smarts and lateral thinking to figure out how to get past some parts of the game.

I have much to say about this game, I got it last sales for 0.99 and I’d say it’s worth buying for that price.
But about the whole gameplay, I’d say there is much you can do to make it better.

————CONTROLS————
Before I start I want to talk about the controls because thats what most of the thumbs-down say aren’t good. Luckily in the settings there is a way you can change this. The default is more for left-handers, but you can change it for right-handers in the settings. It’s called North-west or North-east something like that. Once you have it set your way there should be no problem at all. If you’ve ever played Bloxorz you should have no problem.

————GRAPHICS————
Ok now about the graphics, what made me want to buy this was defiantly because of the clean and colourful design. The movements and animations are smooth and the cube is beautiful. A comment said “ letting you’re cube flash won’t make your game better “ Maybe thats true but the flashing cube sure made me want to buy this.

————GAMEPLAY————
You are a cube that has to reach the end platform for each level. You use AWSD or up down left right to control yourself around obstacles. Now the game is called EDGE for a reason, they had a great idea of you balancing on your edge to stick to the sides of platforms. If you do it right you can hang on for 10 sec and beyond. Normally 5 average for me, which is enough to get past all the levels.

————RE-SPAWN / CHECKPOINTS————
Thank you, thank you for having this or I would have stopped playing after half and hour. This game is based on speed which means your ranking and score is based on the time you took to complete each level. I usually get the lowest score LOL, but I’m just glad I finish it. The thing is you can almost respawn after each mistake, each checkpoint is only like 2 meters apart so you can finish a level even if you suck.

———— READ THIS————
Now here is where I want to talk about this game. YOU HAVE NO GOAL. NO SATISFACTION.
Humans like to think they accomplished something, even if it is the stupidest thing. Maybe its about their reaction time, or how smart they are. If they beat a level they thought was a challenge, they would want to play more. It is a complicated balance - hard enough to be a goal but not too hard to make them quit.

You see, you saved your game by giving all the checkpoints, that is sweet. But now to the game play!!! All those fancy platforms flying around and transforming is just a pain in the ♥♥♥. It has no help to the player and nothing to do with the game. It’s just like showing off fancy graphics, so yeah , I have to wait 10 seconds for this platform to come over just so I can go on it and take me to the next platform. I’d rather just walk on a bridge to the next place.
The thing is it doesn’t help and is annoying.

Also something I wanted to say is that you have these random blocks fall out / push me /transform in random directions, and you somehow assume the player is going to know your crazy moves on their first attempt.
What happens is I die 5 times. Yeah ok, I know the pattern now so its simple and thats it! So easy!! The player does no feel a challenge because it wasn’t, It was just frustrating. And at the end it was easy because I died so I know how to do it now.

!!!NO!!! you must let the player think they can do it on their first attempt !!
LET them think they can do better !
Not you NOT the developers. Make obstacles that actually have a pattern.
Let the player know there is danger ahead. Let them see how they can avoid something as long as they think fast enough!

THIS GAME COULD HAVE BEEN SO INTERESTING!
It’s not that pleasant to right a long review, But I actually care about this game. Thats why I made sure I played all the basic levels before commenting on it. I just wanted you to know how much better this could be, and I love the edge time concept. You can add in a release button. Sometimes I’m stuck on the wall and I want to let go, but I can’t. Let there be a release button so the player can jump off when he/she wants.

Anyway, yeah, this game is relaxing because of the respawn, usually just when you want to play a game but don’t have too much time, 1 or 2 of the levels should do the job.

P.S music is awesome
