Construct: Escape the System reviews and comments

This game is very good, the atmosphere is cool, the music is not bad, the control is great, graphics with drawing too steep, and by the way, this puzzle not only pumps brains, but also helps to deal with problems with psychology. In General, I recommend this game to all the purchasers.

It'S like a parkour puzzle, super fun and very nice to watch. In my view, it lacks a more moved soundtrack to hook you more and would be good to have some kind of indicator in some places, because if you lose, you lose. In any way very good game.

Product received for free I don't really know, but there's just no Tension in the Game. Everything is extremely slow and can be played by a Sloth as few Reflexes as is required here. If you're looking for a Game like Geometry Dash Here, you'll be disappointed.

A great game, for all those who like to glide, have upside down, virtual worlds, Tron, and rebomdir platform in platform. The start is pretty slow but it's really worth spending the first hour to unlock the first orbs of capacity. The game quickly becomes a real treat, the sensations are there! A big thank you to the devs! More info here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3gx5SJwWV90

At the time, I had been looking for a Game that-even without needing any major Resources-runs on a not too fast laptop. I found Construct-Escape the System. Unfortunately I only came to play much later, but I have to say that I haven't had a lot of Fun for a long time. Graphics and Music help to identify with the Topic, and the Puzzles also become more and more demanding with advanced Time. A real Challenge is escaping time. For me, a clear Buy recommendation.

Product received for free Is a good game, good price and is challenging I saw it a little suspicious when I was madad to play it, at the beginning is a little slow but when they unlock skills and as they progress in the game becomes Something really challenging that makes you think but with a bit of coconut and patience can be overcome (And) The Music of the game is very good and the graphics did not disappoint me as final detail thank the developer and congratulate Him for his game a gem I recommend if Les Gu Stan Puzzle Games and platforms

Construct: escape the system is a pretty interesting minimalist puzzle/platform game. The character learns little by little of the abilities that enable him to reach new goals. The music and the sound atmosphere work very well with the universe. However, there is still a complete absence of scenario, repetitive tasks (you enter a universe, collect the ORB and then run a time trial for each recovered ORB, and there are 16), very approximate translations, and the fact to get lost without stopping in the "system" without knowing where to go or what to do. Construct: 13/20
