Hello everybody, Shaun Meyers here to share my thoughts on Revolve by Rusty Bolt. I received a copy of the game from the developers for video and review purposes but like all of my reviews, this had no affect on my experience with the game.
Revolve is an indie puzzle platformer where you indirectly control a drone to reach the end of the level. The game takes place in space on a derelict ship and you must guide the drone around obstacles and hazards.
The game features a wide array of very well designed levels that become more complex as the game progresses. There are 70 levels across 5 areas.
The levels in the game require you to utilize various abilities in order to reach the portal at the end. You have no direct control over the drone so timing your abilities is key to reaching the end. The abilities available to you include speed boost, gravity, jump and stop. These abilities also require energy to use and if you run out you will need to wait for your energy bar to recharge again before continuing. You can use 2 abilities in a row at most before you run out of energy. You can chain together abilities to make them more potent as well. Hitting jump twice will allow you to double jump and break through certain platforms, for example.
The game also features a level editor where you can create your own levels and share them on the Steam Workshop for other players to enjoy.
Overall, Revolve is a pretty enjoyable puzzle platformer and it offers some really well done level design. It’s also quite the challenging game too and you should expect to die numerous times in the process of playing through it. Definitely worth checking out if you’re in the market for a puzzle platformer.
