Phlux's review

    Published: 2014-05-29, by Janel.

    Grab each of the components of visual light in this simple platformer

    • Cool concept
    • Black spot often gets stuck
    • Graphics far too simple

    "By the colors combined, we are Captain Light"

    Deepesh Ramnani's Phlux is an extremely simple platformer with an interesting premise but underwhelming execution. You're a black spot that needs to collect the red, green, and blue spots in order to advance to the next level through the white platform. Run right and left or jump via on-screen buttons. Graphics are far too simple, and the spot often gets stuck. There are no extras or upgrades to speak of. The concept is cool and abstract, but it just isn't well-made enough to hold your attention for very long.

    The sequel is out on the Playstore, Search 'Unsure' or go to 'More from developer' section.

    Phlux is a Indie 2D Minimalist Adventure Platformer made with Unity Game Development Engine, inspired by 'Thomas Was Alone'. The game puts you in charge of a small black box with a rainbow tail. Your goal is to collect each of the three circle colors before exiting each level filled with mysterious puzzles. And to do this, you must navigate and bounce through levels filled with various platforms and obstacles. To move around, you’re given two directional keys on the bottom left of your screen and a jump button on the bottom right. You’re able to double-jump in order to reach hard to reach places, a skill which quickly becomes vital in the impossible game.

    The game itself features beautifully minimal graphics, and becomes a rather beautiful kaleidoscope of colors and shadows in later levels. It is available both in ad-sponsored and paid variants. The free version is functional and allows you to play all 18 levels, but includes an ever present (but unobtrusive) banner ad in the top left of your screen while playing. The paid version, on the other hand, does away with the ad.

    If you are a fan of 2D platformers and want an excellent option for while you’re on the go, give Phlux a shot!
