About

Semblance is an innovative platformer with deformable terrain, set in a beautiful minimalist world. It’s a game that asks, what if you could deform and reshape the world itself? Semblance takes the idea of a ‘platform’ in a platformer and turns it on its head. What if platforms were actually part of the gameplay, part of the way you solved problems? Explore a world where the default is soft, where the property of 'hardness' doesn't exist. Each of the game's three worlds explore a new consequence of a planet that can shift, change and deform. Beat back the strange, crystalline infection of hard material by freeing the world's life essences and uncover the dark cause for its appearance Unique and innovative deforming platform gameplay: Can’t reach a collectible? Just deform and elevate a piece of the ground so that the point you jump from is higher. Nasty spikes in the way? Just deform and push-down the ground lower so that you can pass by. Squish, bounce, squash and transform the world- and yourself to solve problems. Beautiful Minimalist Aesthetic Design: Explore 3 worlds bursting with colorful minimalist charm, quirky critters, and calming vistas. Become hypnotized by each world's dynamically layered score, each with a hint of African aural distinction. Explore non-linearly The game allows you to move between puzzles as you wish, never forcing you to find a solution in order to progress and enabling you to come back later. Similarly, the game's narrative is presented expansively, allowing you to explore- and piece together the story for yourself as you roam the game.

Semblance reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from French
Product received for free released on July 24th, semblance is a platforming/Enigma game, developed by Nyamakop and edited by good Shepherd entertainment. Using your Squish, you will have to save the 3 trees of the world attacked by another tribe of Squish. This is our express test. At the discovery of semblance the 3 trees of the world are attacked. To save them, we will have to visit them and retrieve each blue Orb of each internship, and thus open the passage to the one who has set up all this, a green Squish that put your brain to the test, because each ORB is protected by a riddle. It must be known that in semblance, the story is lived through murals that we discover as we go along with our adventure, which allows us to understand the story once the game is over. We will not reveal anything about this story because it could spoil the game of future buyers. The game consists of 3 trees, each of these trees comprises 5-6 levels with an average of 5 puzzles all different, which makes on average about fifty puzzles, see a little less. To solve puzzles, you will have to play with the platforms that your Squish will be able to modify as it pleases by jumping or tapping on them. But the more you advance, the more you will encounter new challenges, like trampoline platforms, or even a shiny wall that allows you to turn into 2 other shapes, an elongated that will allow you to make horizontal jumps more powerful, and a cucumber shape for impressive vertical jumps. The game itself is beautiful. We are in a colorful world, which is rocked by a captivating music, which makes our gaming experience very enjoyable and we appreciate even more the puzzles in these conditions. All the charm of the game is in the story that we discover in the various paintings scattered in the worlds, sometimes visible easily, or hidden in places almost inaccessible, it will have to think even more than during the puzzles for all find them. Just like the 8 secret temples that hide in the game. Semblance has a short lifespan. you have to count on average 2 1/2 hours the first time, and 1 hour when you start it again, because Yes you will do it again to try to have all the successes of the game. In conclusion, despite its very cute little life as the Squish that one controls, semblance remains a pleasant and pretty Enigma game, with a wonderful ambience. We regret the simplicity of the puzzles, which makes the game too easy and suddenly too fast. But the hunters of success will have a hard time to find the paintings and temples, which allows to lengthen a little longer its duration. The game still offers a beautiful story to discover and remains a very good hobby for those who love the puzzles. Editor's Note: 8/10-a very nice puzzle game, with a very cute story.

The first time I started playing this it looked like it was gonna be one hell of a buggy game, BUT after a couple of hours of gameplay I became accustomed to the unique environment that this puzzle game has.
