Helium reviews and comments

-made with unity -cant remap controls, so players with azerty keyboards are doomed -crouch is on "c" and not on "ctrl" where it belongs to. -no V-Sync which results in a LOT! of screen tearing (forcing it thru NVIDIA panel works tho) -graphics options only gave you presets "low" and "medium", where the ♥♥♥♥ is "high"? -dead decoration bodies are not loaded with the map, they spawn in mid air when u reach a certain location and fall on the floor, which looks awefully stupid and completely destroys the immersion -same for some other decoration objects like boxes etc. -hitting something thats farther away than 1 yard from your weapon is pure luck. and the spread for a laser weapon is real huge! i mean theres a hit spread like 15 yards to left and right and up and down from the middle if you try to hit something thats like 4 yards away, even aiming down doesnt make it much better. probably the most inaccurate energy weapon ever seen in computer gaming history. -i really dont get why flying translucent ghost like energy octopus aliens (this now sounds way better as it actually is, the enemies are lame) wear metal plates as armor around their energy head. -not enough ammo around the world so you have to melee (which is sure death if theres more than 2 or 3 enemies on the map) also there are enemies that cant even be meleed cause they fly like high up in the air like some silver flying saucers. if you out of ammo you are dead, cause u cant reach them with melee, running is useless and you literally have nothing to defend yourself.

Helium a little Sci-fi Indies game, with some Shooting Elements and Puzzles. You don't know anything except that you are on a strange Planet and all the People have somehow passed away, so you have to find out with smaller Audiologs what happened and in doing so you are being attacked abundantly by some Creature. The Game is based on the Unity Engine, where I Was scared at first, because most Of the In-games are really horrible, but in Helium the atmosphere and the Graphics are quite ok, it is by no Means an Eyesore, but you also don't get Eye Cancer, it's okay all round. The Story seems to be quite neat so far and you can just find out what happened on this Planet. However, there is a Need For Improvement in the Game technology, the Weapon will never know exactly how much ammunition you have left, the Life Display could also be a bit more detailed and you can already get Case damage for Mini-heights (Swimming is not possible either). However, so far there are different Areas, on the Planet itself, where you have to look for certain Things, the Space station with a few Rooms where you are Weightelos, eig more than I expected. The Game Has not yet crashed with me, only I had a Graphics Error in a Waterfall and died through a Box, so why a Bug. I don't think you can do so much wrong for 5 Euros, I would recommend it, but you have to know for yourself if you can make some Swabs regarding the Indie-game, because it's not a perfect Game, but also not a completely unplayable Dirty Game which is enough on Steam , would settle it so in Midfield for zwischendbreak:) If you like to make a small Impression for yourself, you can watch my Experience in Video Form: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=44D-2y9NsxI
