Oscura, the apprentice lighthouse keeper, has accidentally destroyed the Aurora Stone, sending shards across the Driftlands and plunging them into darkness and danger. It’s now up to Oscura to find the shards of the stone and restore light to the Driftlands before the creatures of the dark can destroy it. Fortunately, the accident has fused Oscura’s hand with glowing fire, enabling him to wield powers altering anything the light touches. Each level challenges your puzzle-solving skills and reactions in this modern adventure built upon the time-honoured mechanics of classic platformers.FeaturesMaster the Light: Along your dark journey you’ll find four different powers, each designed to help you through the Driftlands. Destruction, Construction, Gravity and Time are yours to command. Master each unique light power in your dark journey through the Driftlands.

Discover the origin of our accidental hero: Oscura wasn’t always the Driftland’s trusty lighthouse keeper. And he didn’t always have his flaming hand. Taking place before the previous Oscura games, Lost Light reveals where our hero’s journey began and the fate of the original light house keeper.

Old school platformer meets new school design: Taking inspiration from classic platformers such as Super Mario Bros, Oscura Lost Light combines these elements with a modern design aesthetic.

Use your wits: The Driftlands aren’t for the feint hearted and Oscura’s not a fighter. You’ll need to out-think and outwit creatures such as the Lost Ones, Shagrims, Bewinged, Grymfus, Cursed Skulls and more. Just as challenging are the puzzles you must solve if you wish to survive.

Confront Evil: Just when you think you’ve succeeded by collecting the shards of the Aurora Stone, you’ll need to face the ultimate challenge and restore the Lost Light … but beware … Mavro the Lord of Shadows awaits. Only by defeating Mavro can you save the Driftlands.

Oscura: Lost Light reviews and comments

Translated by

In the face of criticisms made at Oscura, I would like to put things in their place to defend this game a bit. Yes, limbo is a reference among the cartoon games in black and white and the dark atmosphere. Yes, limbo is one of my favorite games. But at some point, you have to stop comparing everything to him. There are other games in the same style and that are just as good. The only flaw that can be blamed on Oscura is that as Toby: the secret mine, he does not draw his pin from the game. There is no real story, sometimes the character slides a little, the cutscenes are simple and some colors can hurt the eyes. But frankly, it's not as far as it makes a good game for the trash! I had a good time and I recommend this game, especially on promotion. It seems to me also to have had limbo for more expensive than Oscura, although it is not always quality indicator here is a criterion that must be taken into account because Oscura pushed a little further could really become a very very good game;)

Oscura is a medium platformer. Picking up the black side of limbo and Schein's mechanics, he is struggling to stand out with a slightly soapy handling and a story that fits on a leaf. [GRAPHICALLY AVERAGE] Graphically it's okay. The colorful side with the contrast of the black is not bad, but the animations are really average. It is also regrettable that the red color sometimes turns yellow, which sometimes gives some confusion. [WHO HAS SOAP?] Oscura has more than average maneuverability. The character slides often and the changes of direction in the air are sometimes risky. It is also sometimes unresponsive when changing power. [NOT ENOUGH CHALLENGE] Beyond that, the 21 levels do not pose any real difficulty. Some passages a little narrow, but overall it is accessible to many people. CONCLUSION I do not recommend Oscura. If you have it in a bundle, you will spend about 4H, but if you really like this kind of power change mechanics, preferred it a Schein.

While I don't know how to Rate Oscura: Lost Light for myself, I can recommend it somehow. why? Pro/Contra ... It's your turn! >:D + I like the Game Principle. You can choose how fast you want to play the Game. + Very simple Control-This is step-friendly + I personally have a Weakness for this scheme/shadow graphic ala Limbo & Ori And The Blind Forest. It has a very calming effect ...-... But Tension is never built up at any Point. -Unfortunately, the Music is not good. Every World has its own Music. As a result, the Music repeats itself in every Level of a World. Plus, she quickly becomes monotonous and boring. -This Game is bugated. Point. Cliff Through Walls or even "fly out of the World" (e.g. Chapter 7) happens without Provocation. -The Achievements are also quite busty. You have to "indulge" two Achievements. -Unfortunately, the Progress of the Game is EBENFALLS. So you collect 38/38 Items in one Level (i.e. 100%), you just don't get that more often on the Mapscreen. +/-The Puzzles are pretty simple. +/-Enemies move up and down And forget about Oscura within seconds. (Game becomes very easy as a result). +/-The first of four Collectible cards I got after three Hours Of play. Verdict: Unfortunately a very flawed but still fun Game for in between. :)-All the best-DvD PS: Sorry for this fast-clapped Review. Maybe I'll revise it again later.
