A Little Bit Of: WARP

Stealth puzzle games, not usually my kind of thing but it's quite fun.

I rather enjoyed this game, well after I plugged a darn controller in. The keyboard and mouse controls are beyond garbage. If I can't use a mouse cursor on the menu at some point I'm going to wonder why is it even rendered at all. More importantly why can't I use it! Yeah, plug in a controller for this game, you might actually be able to like it that way.

With that aside though I did enjoy what I've played of it. Playing as a kind of murderous teleporting orange blob kind of has an appeal. And I do enjoy the fact that when you explode a person you get covered in blood, which then falls to the ground when you next teleport. The puzzles are also largely well made, there was the odd occasion where I just sort of felt like I was cheesing the guard AI but some of that was probably me failing to see a better option. And when you get more powers you do have plenty of options around it does take some getting used to actually using them all.

Also activation of this game is about three times more complicated than it should be. Did I mention bad PC ports irritate me? Charming game, annoying trappings.

Some might even call this a 'Quick Look' at Warp.
