    Contre Jour's review

    Published: 2014-07-07, by .

    Puzzling, artistic, dark, and elegant: morph the ground to roll the creature to safety

    • Hits the sweet spot between art and app
    • Darkly elegant aesthetics will please your inner goth
    • Clever puzzles making use of unique morphing mechanics
    • None

    "Tendrils and geysers and and pulleys, oh my"

    Contre Jour is a series of clever, beautiful puzzles for your inner goth child. It's darkly delightful to exploring how you can manipulate the world to help oddball Petit to the light endpoint of each level.

    You have no control over the movements of Petit - neither does he - but instead can morph the ground itself. Create hills and valleys to use the pull of gravity to help you out. Hook Petit with hanging tentacles that propel him into the air, and use geysers and pulleys to creatively move him about the silhouetted world.

    The 5 chapters - including 100 levels in all - are accompanied by a calming, slightly eerie piano soundtrack specially composed for the game. It hits the very sweet spot between art and app, and the game mechanic is wholly original. Highly worthwhile.

    Blurring the lines between games and interactive art, Contre Jour welcomes you to a hauntingly beautiful world shaped by the interplay of light and darkness.

    Use your finger to morph the landscape, propelling the mysterious creature Petit to safety. Pull, swipe, and tap gadgets such as tendrils, air geysers, and pulleys to complete clever puzzles. Set to a poignant orchestrated soundtrack from composer David Ari Leon, Contre Jour both delights and bedevils from start to finish.

    The game still uses redundant ways to record achievements and highscores which don't work anymore. The game is now abandoned.
