Puzzle games can go down the path of frustratingly hard or barely stimulating, but Semblance strikes a fantastic balance by dropping you in the middle of a world that is a joy to figure out. It has great music, control and style that puts it among the ranks of puzzle platformers like Limbo. With a fresh dynamic focusing on level transformation and challenging mind games, this is a game worth checking out for any puzzle aficionado or die hard platformer enthusiast.
Semblance is a game full of excellent and satisfying puzzles, marred only by some odd jankiness and a final level that doesn’t focus on the strengths of what had come before. While short, the experience was overall enjoyable, and a fun take on the idea of a world that can be deformed on your way to finishing a puzzle. It could definitely use more levels, but it doesn’t overstay its welcome, and in the end, isn’t it good for a game to leave you wanting more?
Semblance's haunting atmosphere and clever gameplay mechanics make it a memorable and satisfying puzzle platformer. However, once you're done with it, you'll wish that there was a lot more to experience.
Derrière son univers mignon et coloré, Semblance cache un concept bien pensé, basé sur votre capacité à modifier directement les éléments du décor. Une idée simple qui incite à l’expérimentation et s’accompagne de puzzles environnementaux réussis et variés que l’on prend plaisir à enchaîner. Malheureusement, l’ensemble se boucle en à peine quelques heures, alors que le titre semblait en avoir encore sous la semelle. De plus, celui-ci souffre de la présence de quelques bugs de collision ainsi que du manque de précision de certains sauts, qui tend à rendre certains passages inutilement plus complexes. S’ils n’empêchent pas Semblance de rester une expérience plaisante et assez bonne, le soft aurait sans doute pu prétendre à de plus grandes hauteurs avec un soupçon de peaufinage.
Semblance brings a very calm experience to a genre that I usually find the most frustrating. It’s charming yet simple art style reels you in and the soundtrack adds the cherry on top. It is short and it will leave you wanting more but don’t let that take you away from the totally unique game that this is. Is it the best puzzle game out there? Not by a long shot but this is a great idea that has been executed in the best possible way. If you’re a fan of the puzzle genre then I suggest you give Semblance a go, it will be unlike any puzzle game you have played before. If puzzle games aren’t really your thing but you’re interested? Wait for a sale, it might just surprise you.
Semblance lets you deform your platforms to solve puzzles how you want, but it limits your tools so severely that the promise of that idea is wasted on mediocre puzzles. It has a neat look, but like its core mechanic, it wears thin even before you get to the end of your two hour trip through the game.
