Logisk Studio has released Oculux, a brand new minimalistic puzzler for iOS and Android devices.
In it you move an orb around on screen in one of four directions, knowing that once you make a move you have to commit to it. You can’t interrupt a move until you hit a wall, and the puzzle aspect comes in the form of working out where to move the orb and deciding the sequence of your moves.
The controls are straightforward: you swipe with your finger in the direction you wish to move, and the orb on screen will do so. The levels have different traps and hazards you must avoid as you collect diamonds that are scattered throughout. The meditative aesthetics of Oculux’s visuals and soundtrack give way to a relaxing experience that you will maintain throughout the game.
It’s probably best seen in motion, so here’s a trailer for you to check out which demonstrates the gameplay and visuals.
Oculux has over 200 hand-crafted puzzles for you to complete, so there’s no shying away from the amount of content Logisk has provided. Each stage gets progressively harder as you get deeper into the game, and they will also gradually introduce new gameplay mechanics to make things more complicated such as moveable objects and portals that transport you to other sides of the level. It’s not as hard as it sounds though. You’re able to undo moves if you take a wrong turn and there are hints available if you get really stuck.
In addition to that, Oculux also supports cloud saves and syncs across devices, so you can move your progress between platforms if you wanted to do so. You can download it from the iOS App Store and Google Play for Android. It’s a free to play title with in-app purchases.
