About

Recursed is a 2D puzzle-platform game where the structure of the world can be twisted. Stack up boxes and use keys to unlock doors to get the crystal at the end of each level. Jump into chests to enter other rooms, or pick up the chests and move the rooms around. Duplicate, destroy or alter the structure of the level to solve the puzzles.

There's no way to die, no enemies to fight and no holes to fall in or spikes to hit. The only tool you need is logic.Features

“I played for a while but it seemed really slow / simple” Jonathan Blow Well, he should have played it to the end. This game is unique and great like "Braid", but with way more content. And way better than JBs pretentious "The Witness" Are you a fan of challenging puzzle games? Buy this one! The 2 free DLCs are great as well. So many axtra hours. Especially the second DLC is hard as f... 10 / 10

Product received for free A detail-loving Puzzle game That quickly makes your Skull Qualming. Classic Goal: Find the Exit to the next Level. However, in this Game the Rooms are stuck in Chests, which in turn can be dragged around with you-also into other Rooms. So you can (and must) change the Arrangement of the Rooms (through which you walk) to get to the next Level. Dirty Retrographic, good Music, solid control-actually nix to complain about. But Beware, it gets pretty hard after a few Levels. So nix for People who don't like to bony a bit.

Recursed is a nice Puzzle Game that somehow reminds me of Valve's "Portal" and the 2010 film "Inception." The Game Mechanics are new, or at least I have not encountered anywhere in form. As in Portal, mobile "Portals" exist in the Form of Boxes that the Player enters and can neddle in Recitalics as in Inception. Hence the Name "Recursed" (if there were still Doubts.;-). Visually, however, there are rather no Similarities with Portal/Inception. The Graphics are made of pixelated 2D Graphics (with small 3D Elements and matching Particle effects), which fits well with the Implementation of the Puzzle idea. The Soundtrack is fine and doesn't bother any further. Unusually for a 2D platform puzzle artist Are the "Diaries" that are distributed in the Game and read aloud in English. The German Translation (Subtitle) succeeded well. Gradually, new Elements are added in the Game and the degree of Difficulty increases. Along with these other Game Elements and Rules (one of which reminds me a bit of "Braid"), the Developer has succeeded in creating a really tricky and thoughtful puzzle game here. Those who put new Game Ideas above Top graphics and like to puzzle will probably like this Game. [Update] Now after 14 h I was able to solve the final Level. Individual Boxes are still unsolved and I still lack hidden Levels. The Degree Of difficulty increases again and you must have understood the Rules completely in order to progress. Unfortunately, it often gets confusing (The Boxes all look the same) and you can easily get bogged down. A few middleweight extra levels would have done the Learning Curve well. Overall, though, the Puzzle design is good. There are no Gap Fillers at the Puzzles. From me ne clear Recommendation for stubborn Hardcore Puzzles Fans;-)
