Vessel Review (Windows PC)

Posted by , 4 days ago

Item reviewed: on

As soon as you feel like puzzle-physics games have reached a standstill, suddenly something new and interesting shows up and changes everything. Vessel takes the classic sidescroller Vessel ReviewRPG concept, and combines it with some impressive liquid physics and engineering, to make an intense and complex puzzle game that will provide many hours of gameplay.

People who love engineering and the steampunk style should absolutely take a good look at Vessel. You will find adorable water creatures, fun physics, and complex gameplay in Vessel, and a nice blend of slower, thinking and planning gameplay, mixed in with faster, reaction dependent gameplay. The liquid physics is top notch, with water functioning as individual drops that can combine to a larger mass. Some different liquids can even mix resulting in steam or even explosions!

Vessel Premise

Vessel puts you in the shoes of a man named Arkwright, the inventor of a revolutionary technology that enables the creation and use of liquid machines. Called “Fluros,” the liquid robots are designed to complete work tasks cheaper and better than humans. Unforeseen consequences erupt when their ability to evolve and self replicate become out of control. As their creator, Arkwright takes up the job of correcting the mischief the Fluros are causing, and learning about how his machines evolution can be controlled.
