Snapshot is an interesting puzzle-platformer game recently obtained by many in Humble Indie Bundle 7. The game uses the key element of the curser being a camera, and whatever you click disapears and becomes a photo that you can then add into the world in most places and interact with. Only very certain elements of the world can be altered, including wind currents, projectiles, boxes, and gravitational feilds.
The game has 4 chapters, with 9 levels in each, each having 3 stages, so 108 puzzles in total. I played through the entire game and beat every puzzle in about 7 hours total time. I didn't go for any of the collectables or time achievments (medals in the game's case). My time would definately doubled had i gone to 100% it.
One aspect of this game that really stood out to me was how the actual elements of the puzzles were introduced very often and then disregarded right after. For example, at one point in the game there was an object that stuck to a different object in the world. After just 4 puzzles this was completely gone for the game. It seemed every level (3 puzzles) had a completely new element to learn how it works. Because of this, the puzzles were easy, with almost 1/4th of the puzzles just showing the user how an object works. This was good when there wasobjects you didn't like but bad for the interesting ones.
The puzzles were overall too simple. A few of the puzzles i was stuck on, yet there were no guides online (due to how new the game was). However i was never stuck for more than 5 or so minutes.
The platforming was subpar. I didn't like it. Your character had no momentum or change in speed, so there was no way to move slowly at all. This led to the feeling of a lack of precision in the jumps. Some puzzles i knew exactly what to do, but couldn't complete the puzzle without numerous tries because of messing up the platforming.
Overall i'd say this game is good to buy for under 3 or 4 dollars. You'll get your playtime out of it if you want 1 dollar per hour. I didn't really like the game, however i did play through the entire thing. As a puzzle game it wasn't great, i expected more of a challenge, however it might be worth it those who like casual, relaxing puzzle games.
Bastion is one of the best games i have ever played. The gameplay itself is pretty good. it's fluid and there is enough variety in the weapons you use that it doesn't get boring. The truly amazing part of this piece of art is the story. You start off unknwon as to what has happened, and eventually learn all about The Calamity and what has happened to the world you live in. The soundtrack is outstanding and by the end of the game you will be sad that it is over. I highly recommend this game to anyone. At full price it may be a little bit too much if you count how good a game is based on hours/price ratio, but if its ever on sale it is a must-buy.
I personally like this game, but it's interesting how depending on the circumstances, you may not like this game. If you have a group of people to consistantly play with, Planetside 2 is a load of fun. If you are playing solo, i would pass. In addition, it is pay to win to some extent. It takes hours and hours to play enough to unlock new guns, which can be bought easily. While you can sure be fine without paying any money (i don't), those who do have an advantage. The maps are huge, and the amount of players is astounding. It's free, so try it out.
