About

Polarity is a first-person puzzle that continues the tradition of Portal, and a similar visual style is a direct homage to the Valve's game. The player has to get through the 15 levels of the campaign solo or with a friend.

The plot of the game tells about hiring a player so that he hacks the safest database on the planet. The employer has a lot of money and an unclear motive. The player agrees and, as well as the story goes, it reveals new details about the mysterious customer. Each riddle and each puzzle suggest several possible solutions. This is also facilitated by the physical model of the game. There are two polarities: plus and minus, red and blue. The player can change them to solve puzzles and pass levels. To prevent the player from it, there are dangerous lasers, machine guns, and moving platform.

Despite the developers' claims of the game’s difficulty, the game will not offer unsolvable tasks, and its completion will take just several evenings.

Polarity reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Deutsch
My Conclusion of the Game is below, if the detailed Text here is too long, and you roughly want to have the Strengths and Weaknesses of the Game listed. Plot In Polarity, a mysterious Client gives you the Task of hacking into a Corporation's Network and stealing Secrets. And aside from the short Epilogue in which you get offered a Permanent Job, that's the only Time only the Approach of a Story can be seen at all. Why the Shop page advertise With the Revelation of Secrets is a Mystery to me. The entire Plot consists of only twelve Movements (and "Good luck!" Is one of them). Gameplay Goal of the Game is to collect Data Fragments and reach the End Of the Level. The Levels resemble an Obstacle Course. Some Obstacles have a Polarity (either red or blue), and depending on what Polarity you have yourself, you interact with those Obstacles, or not. By Default, there are also puzzles again where you have to place a Cube on a Switch. Sounds very interesting at first. Well... Stud only that the Game does not even begin to present the Challenge Touted on the Shop Side: Each Level is solved after just under three Minutes, and the Game has 22 of them in the Single-player Campaign. I hope you can calculate yourself when you are through. The Two-player campaign isn't worth talking about Either, and clearly just intended as a Gimmick. Because most Levels can also be solved by just one Person alone, and the other Player drits with a Crisis of existence because he is simply not needed. Well, not everywhere "Co-Op" is on it, there's co-op in it, too. And with the Verse Mode, the Game completely shoots down the Bird. You have 60 Seconds to throw a limited Number of Dice on the Switches in the enemy Playing field. Whoever hits the most wins. And that's it ... Atmosphere Atmospheric, on the other hand, the Game is quite acceptable. The Levels are located in visually appealing Rooms that evoke an Association with Cyberspace due To their Neon lighting. And the Soundtrack, although inconspicuous, is quite pleasant and creates an exciting Basic Mood. Other The Game still has some Bugs (for Example, if one of the Players dies, the other drops their Dice at once), as well as various Weaknesses in the Menu guidance (after Finishing a Level There is no short-term Keystroke to prevent you from Dating Reckle right on). Verdict/TL; DR Naja ... The Puzzles are not very difficult, and there can hardly be Any talk of an Action. But you could at least enjoy the Optics and the Sound. So actually, with some Goodwill, you could say that Polarity can at least partially bridge a (very) boring Afternoon. But then I visited the Shop page again, where a challenging Gameplay and an exciting Story are promised, which are not available to some extent. When I saw the Price, I almost fell off the Chair. I must have picked up the Game at The time on recommendation in the Sale with 95% Off. At least I hope I didn't spend again at the time. My Polarity is red for this Game, anyway. Leave your Fingers off it.
