Yesterday saw the release of new FPS puzzler Vitrum, an interesting take on the genre bringing back the use of physics manipulation to great new puzzles for you to overcome. Vitrum has been created by 9heads Game Studio, a Brazilian indie developer who first started Vitrum back in 2011.
Vitrum looks to be a very interesting new FPS puzzler where you take control of an android designed to convert energy from crystals into powers. The setting is in a testing laboratory (does it sound familiar) in a desert, the lab contains numerous different crystals some of which will give you powers, whilst others will cause harm.
The crystals will have all manner of effects such as controlling gravity and super high jumping ability there is quite a lot of variety here. As you can charge both hands with the crystals it is possible to combine them to overcome the even more complex puzzles in the late game.
Some of the key features include:
- Each crystal colour represents a power, explore each colour and discover every power the android can execute
- Explore 3D gravity inversion, materialization of crystal platforms, super high jumps and other powers
- Avoid radioactive crystals, death crystals and others
- collect crystal shards to unlock insane stages
- more than 45 stages
Vitrum sounds to be quite the comprehensive game with a great deal of stages to solve and many different power ups throughout I am sure it will be keeping you entertained for hours.
Vitrum can be purchased for $14.99 from the 9heads Game Studio site here. There is also a demo available to download from the studio site also, if you would rather try before you buy.
