Welcome back for yet another week of awesome games to get you away from your work for a few minutes in your hectic day. Today is another game from Ludum Dare 24 and with today being the last day to vote it had to be from LD24 really. Trinity Labs is a great title puzzle game from Gareth Jenkins for LD24 in the theme of “evolution”.
In Trinity Labs you are encouraged to combine three elements together to make the next stage of the evolution. Starting with three different coloured dinosaurs and slowly working your way combining them into future evolutions. Each level provides new challenges from creating stripped dinosaurs to humanoids this little puzzler is quite a fun game to spend time on.
As you progress through the five stages the complexity is gradually increased adding slightly more challenges but nothing overly ridiculous and it flows rather well. The premise is simple but the puzzles are interesting and do keep you entertained for the duration.
It is quite a small game however with the limited time to create a game this is very much understandable and something that is expected. The visuals although basic are very in keeping with the theme and do actually fit very well and work well creating this sterile lab environment.
Trinity Labs is a novel take on the theme of evolution, which is very much what is aimed for in the LD24 competition and I have loved looking at the many quality entries into the competition and greatly look forward to the next.
Average completion time – 25 minutes
