Heavenly Bodies

Heavenly Bodies

Heavenly Bodies is a great combination of fun and frustration featuring hapless cosmonauts trying to complete tasks in zero gravity. Even mundane actions, such as pulling switches and wielding tools, are more challenging due to the control scheme. It is certainly not a game for the easily frustrated as the physics-based gameplay and intentionally tricky controls can wreak havoc on your carefully laid plans. However, struggling through the missions with a friend is both hilarious and rewarding.

Gameplay: Requires a controller to be played properly but offers a lot of fun despite the frustration.

Graphics: The whole visual aesthetic of the game is excellent.

Sound: Excellent soundtrack and sound effects

Embr

Embr

Embr is a frantic multiplayer title where players must fight fires and save clients from burning buildings. While it can be played solo, it’s clear that the game was designed for groups of four. Things start out relatively straightforward, but as players progress through the three districts, the missions become a lot more convoluted. This might annoy players looking for a straightforward firefighting game, but the large levels filled with traps and puzzles do keep things interesting. Embr does have some rough edges and can do with a bit more polish in its current state, but overall it is a lot of fun.

Gameplay: An absolute blast to play with friends and plenty of reasons to keep coming back for more.

Graphics: The visuals are simple but fit the over-the-top style of the game.

Sound: Decent sound effects and a nice jazzy soundtrack to accompany the chaos
