GSY Review PC Switch

Let's continue our summer coverage with a new Nintendo Switch review. Our Ayo the Clown review posted earlier today seems to have mesmerized you completely judging from the attention it got, but then again, much like most of our recent articles. Anyway, this time, it is the turn of Unbound: Worlds Apart, a very solid platformer we can only recommend despite some technical issues on Nintendo's system. Once again, since I can't record any gameplay footage while I'm on vacation, all I have for you is an official trailer and a few screenshots I took in handheld mode.

Verdict


We already told gave Unbound: Worlds Apart some coverage a little over a year ago. At the time, we captured the full Prologue of the game which was available on Steam. Today, Alien Pixel Studios' title is getting released on PC and Nintendo Switch. Apart from a few slowdowns (which could sometimes be a little annoying when dashing), we have had a really great time playing the game. In case you don't know, it is a Metroidvania which includes a dimension mechanic as the little mage we control is able to create a portal around him, this portal opening a gateway to another world. This allows him, among other things, to make a platform appear or a flooded area to disappear, but he can also modify the gravity around him or even alter time itself. As usual, we will not reveal the ten different portals that become available, so you'll remain spoiler free. Soli will obviously acquire these new dimensional gates when progressing through the world, but he will also unlock additional moves (double-jump, wall-run, etc.). The bottom line is that to avoid the dangers lurking around him, Soli will need good reflexes to survive the many traps and creatures he will encounter. Expect to die many times in the course of the game much like in Limbo. You will also have to face a few bosses and if you're the explorer type, a certain number of lost mages need to be found in secret areas. To sum up, Unbound: Worlds Apart is a good find to keep busy this summer whatever system you own.
  • On the upside

  • Very nice art style
  • Numerous checkpoints which load quickly
  • Great atmosphere
  • On the downside
  • First loading is a bit long on Switch
  • Some technical issues on Switch
  • The trial and error approach isn't for everyone
