Review: Semispheres (PlayStation 4)

meditative parallel puzzle game that places dual realities at the heart of its challenge. Its unique single-player split-screen mechanic challenges your brain by putting you in control of two characters at the same time.

Pros:

  • Simple yet nice graphics.
  • Puzzle gameplay. Splitscreen on a single player game that sees you controlling two spheres at once.
  • Simple twin stick controls.
  • Aim of the game is to get both spheres to their exits.
  • Story told with pictures.
  • 14 Trophies.
  • Collect and use abilities in levels. Example of abilities is the create a hole so the blue can see the orange level and vice versa.
  • Level select main hub.
  • Clever hypnotic puzzle game.
  • Chilled out soundtrack.
  • Easy to pick up and play.
  • Opening tutorial.
  • 391.7MB download size.
  • Abilities respawn.
  • Cool lighting effects.

Cons:

  • Slow paced…Duh its a puzzle game but still.
  • Little replay value.
  • Music isn’t for everyone.
  • Later puzzles are devious.
  • You prefer squares to spheres.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
