The last two main games I have been playing are Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain and Assassin’s Creed Syndicate. Neither of these are short. So it was nice to finish a game in one sitting. I played this game as the sun was coming up in the morning (work involves a mixture of day and night shifts) and it leant a bit more atmosphere to the game.
Refunct is a first person platformer. I don’t want to go into much more detail as the game is quite short. Not that it’s a bad kind of short. While I could have happily played for a bit longer, it was nice to not see mechanics repeated just for the sake of making the game longer. I finished it in half an hour, but it only costs £1.99. So it will last you the length of a pint and cost half as much.
There is a nice minimalist design to the graphics and presentation. There aren’t even any tutorials which is a nice touch as you are just left to play in the world. The only thing I found odd with the game was a low mouse sensitivity, even when I cranked it up. Then I tried a 360 pad and it stopped being an issue.
All together (it has really nice music too) its a great way to spend some time.
