Thank you Digerati Distribution for sending us this game to review!

Another Perspective is about a guy who is searching for something, but he forgot what exactly.  Perhaps opening up the door on each level may lead him in the right direction.  What more does he have to lose besides his memory and purpose in life?

There is a door on every level and it has to be opened to progress to the next level.  On many occasions, the door will be locked and you have to retrieve one or more keys to open it.  Since this is a puzzle game, this is usually easier said than done.

Highlights:

Strong Points: Great dialogue and fun puzzles to solve
Weak Points: This is a short game with an achievement to beat it in twelve minutes or less
Moral Warnings: God spelled with a lower case “g” in the text. 

The main character (who is nameless) can walk and jump like many platformer style games out there.  What makes him different is that he can shift perspectives with other versions of himself on the same level.  This is required to collect keys that are not accessible from his current perspective.  Later on in the game he’ll have control of bigger versions of himself which makes things even more interesting.

The controls are pretty simple and use the keyboard for movement, space for jump, and shift for changing perspectives.   Game controller support is also available.  My Xbox controller used Y to reset the level, A to jump, and X to change perspectives.

Score Breakdown:
Higher is better
(10/10 is perfect)

Game Score - 80%
Gameplay - 16/20
Graphics - 7/10
Sound - 7/10
Stability - 5/5
Controls - 5/5

Morality Score - 98%
Violence - 10/10
Language - 10/10
Sexual Content - 10/10
Occult/Supernatural - 10/10
Cultural/Moral/Ethical - 9/10

The sound effects are pretty basic, but the background music is calm and foreboding at the same time.  Many gamers are reminded of Braid when they see this game as the main character is clad in a suit (sans tie), but the levels are dark and dreary versus the vibrant and colorful world of Braid.  The graphics are simple and get the job done.

Other than the puzzles being fun yet challenging, the dialogue is great.  I got the Steam achievement “See what you’ve done?” for annoying the narrator by purposely pausing the game a bunch of times.  There is another achievement for beating the game in less than twelve minutes.  In addition to the short story mode, there’s a Mystery game mode that has more puzzles than story.   By completing the Mystery levels you can earn more Steam achievements and unlock the game’s true ending.  

While this game amused and challenged me, I wasn't blown away by it.  It’s a cute game, but rather short for six dollars.  If it goes on sale though, I highly recommend picking it up if you’re a fan of puzzle games.  From a moral perspective, the only complaint I have is that when God is mentioned in the dialogue, it’s spelled with a lowercase “g”.  Other than that, this game is pretty family friendly.

About Us:

Christ Centered Gamer looks at video games from two view points. We analyze games on a secular level which will break down a game based on its graphics, sound, stability and overall gaming experience. If you’re concerned about the family friendliness of a game, we have a separate moral score which looks at violence, language, sexual content, occult references and other ethical issues.
