About

**NOTE: Skyreach is best played with a console controller, ideally Xbox 360 / One or PS4. It can be played with Keyboard & Mouse.**

Skyreach is a free game inspired by playing with car toys and building tracks for them to drive on. It's an exploration of building track and driving at the same time, instead of the more traditional build track first, then drive on it after. Players are able to build one path piece a head of their current location. This requires players to not only successfully stay on the path, but also plan where to build in order to reach the end of the level.

The environment for Skyreach was inspired by the Arches National Park of Utah mixed with the floating rocks on Pandora of James Cameron's Avatar. We also drew inspiration from the rock carvings of Petra, Jordan and Palmyra, Syria.

Skyreach reviews and comments

Bought: April 29, 2016 I always test free Games. Skyreach, but I was very excited. More, in this Review! :) Main Menu: Skyreach does not offer An extensive Main Menu, but you can choose the Levels and get Options. As An Addition, there is also the Game world in the Background. Music, of course, also gives. 4/5 P. Story: Unfortunately, Skyreach MOMENTAN offers ONLY 3 Levels, but on the one hand they are quite swabre and on the other hand also very long. One will have to hope that the Developers program even more Levels. 3/5 P. Graphic: Oh! The Graphics are actually not so fun-going for a Universe (in Color) game, but can be improved here and there. Efects also gives on top of that! 5/5 P. Sound: The Music in Skyreach is very high wax and good to listen to. But there were sometimes several small Mistakes. But overall all good! 4/5 P.-----------------------------------Total: 16 out of 20 points Note: 2 _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ ENTGÜLTIG Total: 16 out of 20 Points PS: Receeded Spelling Errors!

"Skyreach" is a small free puzzle racer. The Basic Idea is good, We have to lay out our own Distance in front of us as a futuristic Vehicle by placing Either straight, left or Right Turn. Meanwhile, we not only have to stay on the self-laid Track, but also collect green Crystals that increase our tight Time Limit a bit and reach an End Point at the End. You should play "Skyreach" With a Controller, with the Keyboard becomes extremely annoying. The Whole thing with controllers is already Hooky and difficult to Control anyway. And that's the primary Problem, too. Because there's essentially just one really right Way. When you test Alternatives, you quickly notice that the Route is moving sideways or In height. This is probably due to the fact that the Track automatically increases slightly in height, but the Overall Grid of the Track does not Consist of side-identical Cubes. If many functioning alternative Routes could be tested, the weak Controls would not be so conspicuous. Thus, the Gameplay quickly becomes an annoying trial and Error, where you quickly begin to miss your playful Freedom. The Unity graphics are rather weak and you can also listen to the endless loop sound. Even about the fact that there are only three Levels, one can hardly complain about a free Title. But joy really does not arise when Playing, one is too limited in one's Possibilities. Rating: 5/10 Atmosphere 3/10 Story 5/10 Graphic 4/10 Sound 4/10 Game Mechanics 3/10 Balancing 4/10 Game Pass Conclusion: "Skyreach" unfortunately remains in the Category of the Well-intentioned and does not make it into that of the Handmade. 4/10 Overall Rating
