About

Waveform is a simple puzzle game in which the player controls the length and amplitude of a wave. The game is inspired by the particle physics and the wave-particle duality.

Style

Waveform is set to the background of space, filled with stars and nebulas. Occasionally, a familiar planet such as Earth will appear in the background, indicating that we are traveling through the Solar system. The game is accompanied by the electronic ambient music score.

Gameplay

The wave of light under player's control has a shape of a sinus curve. It serves as a route for a particle that flies forward through space. On its way, it will encounter other photons of varying colors that the player has to collect to set a higher score.

The game has around 100 levels of varying difficulty. The player will encounter a number of level features that increase the complexity of the game as he or she progresses. The dark matter is an obstacle to avoid. Mirrors reflect the particle, making it bounce back on its way. Some obstacles may even eliminate the particle.

Controls

The player controls the wave with his or her mouse. Moving the mouse left or right changes the wavelength, while up and down movements influence the amplitude. The player has to adjust the wave to navigate the particle along the route. Increasing the amplitude will also speed up the particle as it moves up and down on the screen. Meanwhile, its horizontal speed stays the same, in full accordance with the Theory of relativity.

Easy to understand, hard to master completely. Manages to renew itself in its gameplay,

The game is not so bad but I do not particularly like the principle (a little to the guitar hero) +: soundtrack, price-: gameplay

In Waveform, you try to collect Stars as much as possible by setting the Beam with the Mouse to catch everyone. A Game you can play for in between.

For which I have even done plus, the Game is recommended. :D I mean.. The Game bought for 24ct .. And the three Cards I got sold for 27ct, what more could you want? Hhaha:D (Was ^^ in the Steam Special Offer)

A little casual game very nice, you control a "wave" and the goal is to have the highest score at each level by amating the bonuses and avoiding the obstacles. Each zone brings new bonuses, so we get tired less quickly. To advise for small sessions

The Game is not bad! It is ... + Relaxing + Interesting But der/die .. -Price control-game length €4.99for a Game This Content I find too expensive! (Bold me the Game in the Steam Summer sale) Dome Control takes getting used to! I couldn't have done them better, but I personally don't think they're good! The length of the Game is kept very small! For £4.99€, I expect a little more You can buy a DLC that increases the Number of Levels, but still costs £0.99. I don't want to spend £5.988, on a Game that offers so little

Yes, but... and yet... After 16 minutes I knew I was not going to try to finish this game. Yet he has undeniable qualities. -The use of the path as in a shoot them up is very well thought out. At first it's boring but from the second world it's not bad at all. -The Visual is well thought out because very explicit. There is no doubt, no blur, no quiproquo. -The different frequencies make think of a game of rhythm (Bah Yes, it is connected but good to say), especially with the multipliers of color) in the end it is a good mix, and especially for as cheap! Cheaper than some mobile games that are less well. If like me the shoot them up aren't your thing, I don't think that's your thing. Beware of the tags that have trapped me: it is not a puzzle, it is not strategy. ^^
