Samara - Game of the Week
My game of the week is the great little challenge game, Samara.
About this Game
"Help Zee escape Samsara! Drop blocks of different shapes and properties into a realm of two mirrored dimensions, in this beautiful, reflective puzzle game with a twist…"
While playing in the park, Zee follows a squirrel through a portal to a world of echoes, inhabited by a shadow child. Surrounded by the unknown and trapped in a series of realms both confusing and dangerous, the youngsters must avoid slipping into the pool between dimensions, embarking on a voyage of discovery and awakening they share with the player, up and down staircases, through light and dark, across the upside-down and the right side-up to their eventual freedom.
What's it like?
Samara is a fun puzzle adventure game in which you have to help Zee is who lost and in need of here. You've got to guide her and her shadow through to there safety.
Don't run in thinking it's easy and simple because you'll find out quickly it's a tough one but it's sure a lot of fun. As expected you'll get a nice tutorial world to get you used to the mechanics of the game at first but after that it soon becomes challenging.
This by no means is a short game with over 70 levels to play through and master. As you play through the game starts to add more and more elements to make it more of a challenge for you so be prepared to get confused at what will end up feeling like such a simple solution.
I've become quite fond of the art style throughout this game coupled with some really nice animations and effects.
Samara is well worth checking out, it's a great looking puzzle game you'll quickly become a fan of even though it'll drive you crazy at times whilst you try your best to help Zee.
