FRACT OSC reviews and comments

Definitely my favorite games < 3 you start in a cool geometric world, little relief, little color. And then moving, things get moving, sound spreads through this universe every time a riddle faces you. Until this machine-world is put entirely in motion.......... A superb 3D musical puzzle games:)

Superb audio-visual adventure, clean, simple and relaxing. It is a parallel universe where it is good to live, time passes quickly:D To test all emergencies! If you're not an angry trigger, you like low-poly graphics and you support music a little electro and some puzzles from time to time! HA and it also takes a good sense of direction if you like to frolic off the trails.

Hammer Game. I would really recommend buying. Some Puzzles are tricky, but not too tricky and you can only do a lot of things by trying or exploring. What I also think is quite nice is the Studio where you can make your own Music. I also think it's cool that the Studio is not just a Menu screen, but also displayed like with real Devices. There is no Main Menu, but this is not bad. To this I find it really fun in the Game that you can just play around and make Music in the Game with Music on various Puzzles. Verdict: I can only recommend the Game

If you like synthesizers and walks in surrealist scenery, you should please in Fract OSC. The puzzles are pretty nice, and there's enough fun with the sequencer that you unlock in the game. On the other hand, even if we spend good times, the progression can be tedious: at first especially, one spends well half of his time getting lost in a décor too big and sometimes a little empty, and to try to understand how the game works. But with a little patience, Fract proves to be an interesting experience, and finally a great way to learn about music software.

A game of exploration/puzzle not extraordinary but however very friendly, themed music. The game breaks down into 3 zones for 3 different types of puzzles. The beginning of the zones being simple to become more complex at the end. Each of the 3 zones ends with a puzzle that requires to have been attentive during your exploration. Failing that, you will have to return to your steps to collect the clues you had missed. Once the 3 zones have been completed, a final puzzle will be waiting for you. A little messy but it remains interesting, and it will allow you to unlock the "Studio", a musical creation interface in the game. No big flaws. The only complaint I could say about him is a moving speed a little low despite the Sprint. At least one option allows you to automatically sprinter when you advance.
