Description

Magrunner: Dark Pulse is a first-person puzzle game set in 2050. The player takes the role of Dax, an elite employee of MagTech Corporation, who is chosen to participate in their space training program. However, since the game also includes horror elements explicitly based on the Cthulhu Mythos, things don't go that well ...

The puzzles are all based on Dax's magnet glove which has the ability to charge level elements either with positive or negative polarity. In contrast to reality, items of the same polarity are attracted and items of opposing polarity do repel each other. When multiple items of the same polarity are chained together, their overall force becomes greater. Those mechanics have to be used in order to reach each level's exit by manipulating the environment. In order to see which elements influence each other, the player can blend in all magnetic fields.

Later in the game, the player is joined by Newton, a robotic dog which sticks to walls and can be used as moveable, chargeable object. The horror elements are restricted to cut-scenes and later levels, in which the player has to dispose of monsters (e.g. by using exploding barrels) to avoid being killed.
