Title: Rising Islands
Genre: Adventure, Indie
Lone Hero Studios
Release Date: 2 Aug, 2016
Bought it at 90% in a steam sale, I remember playing it ages ago at EGX 2016 and thinking it was really good fun so I was kind of skeptical of all the negative reviews. I couldn't even load it. First it would say "Couldn't switch to requested monitor resolution" after playing around with the local files compatibility settings it would start up but I couldn't see it (I could hear the music but there was no game) closing the application would result in a crash which advised me to send to the developers, which I intend to do.
I really don't no what to say except avoid or at the very least try the demo first.
Don't make my mistake.. I really love the kick I get when I am running at high speeds, managing to shift into the correct dimensions and just blasting through a hard part of the stage! I love the theme, graphics style and the character, it is a little bit buggy sometimes and sometimes the graphics spazz out a little, but it still plays really well and the environments are stunning.. I'd say it was rather fun to play. It's a pretty short and easy game despite some tricky jumping places.
In fact there is one particular location with falling platforms - and it's $#&% awful.
I made this freaking combo-jump like in 100 attempts or so.
Maybe due to camera angles, or maybe there are issues with platforms speed or something.
However, I still recommend the game if it comes with a price-drop.

I will definately give creds for a cool 3D Platformer game but the controls in this game are clumsy. I loved the artworks and the enviroment of the game, it was interesting and all that but I don't seem how this game really is that great. It's a bit short for 10 dollars. I have 2 hours gametime and I finished the game just so I could unlock all of the Achievements. Unfortonately I can't refund. Main reason why I dislike the game is because the controls are clumsy and the camera is awkward aswell.. I went into this game a bit hesistant since it currently has a mixed rating on steam. I enjoy 3d platformers and good 3d platformers are really hard to come by so I figured I would give it a shot when it went on sale, I'm really glad I did.
This game is not a collectathon style 3d platformer like so many games in the genre are, despite the fact that it is 3d, the levels themselves are very linear, there is virtually no exploring other than running to a random corner to find hidden gems which don't do anything other than unlock an achievement. In my opinion this is a good thing, and rather than focus on exploring every nook and cranny, the gameplay is solely focused on solid platforming.
Platforming in this game is a lot of fun, the controls are simple and responsive and the camera is surprisingly good for such a low budget title, and it will rarely get in the way. Your main character can switch between red and blue, when you are red, then you have access to various red pathways(walls you can climb on, rails you can grind on, platforms to jump on etc) but you will also be susceptible to red hazards such as landmines, gears, and electrical fields, while you will be safe from blue hazards but unable to access blue pathways. With a touch of a button, the world is reversed. Platforming involves some fairly tricky sections where you are forced to quickly switch colors as you jump through and around red and blue environments.
The platforming is fast, a ton of fun, and it feels really satisfying to traverse the environment. The challenge level in this game is just right, you will die, but you will rarely get frustrated, checkpoints are everywhere, and every time you complete a tricky section you will hit a checkpoint so you almost never need to redo a part that may have frustrated you. The game is on the short side, 13 levels which took me about an hour and a half to beat which is not bad but if you feel like that is too low playtime for $10 then wait for a sale.
I have seen many reviews criticize the story, and I have to say that is probably the dumbest criticism ever levied against a game like this. Yes, the story is nonsense, but it does not get in the way, and this is a 3d platofrmer, they virtually always have a throwaway story, why should a game of this budget get held to a higher standard then the greatest 3d platformers ever made(yes, Mario, I'm looking at you).
Overall, rising islands is a great game and is well worth your time if you enjoy platformers, wait for a sale if you feel like $10 is too much for a short game but definitely do not overlook this game.
