PC Gameplay (Benelux)
Obulis van IonFx is een erg leuke physics puzzelgame met kettingen, gekleurde bollen en gekleurde potten in de hoofdrol.
A clever game geared most towards veteran puzzle-solvers, Obulis harkens back to nothing so much as the days of classic floppy disk outings. Unfortunately, many of today’s enthusiasts won’t possess the patience or perseverance to see the early-‘90s-style epic through to its conclusion. Go in knowing there’s much to be enjoyed here, most of all a mega-catchy base play mechanic. But be aware, however: This is also the type of title that’s going to test your wits, sanity and willpower. Consider yourself duly forewarned...

The problems arise when you start talking about the difficulty of the game: while the easier levels always come with illustrated solutions, the harder ones (where you really need the help) require precision that is frankly too difficult to execute. Now, difficulty can be debated, but when you know what to do but simply can't get the timing down, then the game treads into the “annoying” classification. The fact that most (if not all) puzzles have only one proper solution, usually with multiple steps, raises the frustration bar even higher. The “sameness” of the puzzles begins to wear on you as you'll be utilizing identical basic strategies to solve each puzzle: causing things to run into each other. Obulis transitioned too quickly into “frustration” for my tastes, which is why I can only recommend it to veterans and fans of the genre.
