About

      Schein reviews and comments

      For all Friends of Super Mario or Other Platformer Classics, Schein is the next Step on the Complexity Scale. Thanks to an innovative Idea and the brilliant Implementation, appearances are therefore not only suitable for playing alone, but also in the Family Covenant or in the cosy Sit-in with Friends.

      Product received for free. Sham-5/10 Just About me what: I like adventure, Indie Games very much! Got this Game as a gift. Originally posted by SimsToni: Story (6 •): The Story is very nice and I particularly liked it. I also felt the Story sad. Graphic (5): The Graphics are made very nice. Control (5 •): The Control is great and even better with Gamepad! Lust (4 •): The Game convinced me, were it not for the expensive EIA (Although I paid nothing for it) I recommend, if you want to buy this Game, it is best to buy Steamsales, since the Game costs about 76cent.

      I wasn't really motivated by the trailer but I definitively don't regret my purchase. This game has a fun gameplay, pretty graphics and offers challenging puzzles to resolve. A very good surprise! - Gameplay : the game is a platform/enigms one. The main gameplay mechanism is to use magic lights to reveal elements (platforms, triggers but also obstacles :-P ), invisible to the unaided eye. You have to use these lights to resolve puzzles and make your way out. Other gameplay mechanisms will appear through your journey. Easy at the beginning, the puzzles become more and more tricky (I spent 30min on one of them... ahem). The game also offers pure platform moments, asking you to be quick and to coordinately use the good light at the good time. The difficulty is well-dosed, not too easy but not for hardcore gamers. - Graphics : in a general way, the graphics are pretty. I am not the most qualified to judge graphics but it seems ok to me. A funny and good idea is that each light changes the appearance of the character and the scene. For example, the first light reveals the better in each element and your character appears younger and prettier. It was funny to see how the background appearance changes with each light. - Scenario : to me, the weakest point of the game. The game is defined by its gameplay rather by its story. But it is the same for other good games such as Limbo. Maybe the most motivated persons would see in the story some paraboles I didn't notice. - Life expectancy : this game took me 4-5h to be finished. Some collectibles to find will expand the journey. To conclude : an interesting and challenging game. If you see it with a price reduction, don't hesitate and buy it!
