Vaporum: Lockdown Critic Reviews

Vaporum: Lockdown is quite an interesting take on Bioshock, with insanely hard puzzles, uninspiring plot, and boring enemy designs. But given how rare the setting is, it's not like you have a lot to choose from.

With its original mechanics and a big dose of puzzles, Vaporum: Lockdown not only revives the dungeon crawler genre, but pushes it to the next level.

Considering that Vaporum: Lockdown was firstly meant to be an expansion to the base game, Fatbot Games achieved impressive results on enhancing a familiar structure with better narrative, more build variety and refined enemy encounters. It will be a great addition to anyone’s library that’s very into dungeon crawlers.

While it may act as a prequel to the original, Vaporum: Lockdown is an excellent return to the Arx Vaporum tower. Capitalizing on the features of the original while also making some minor adjustments to how you interact with the environment, this was hard to put down as I tried my best to help Ellie on her journey to escape this scientific wonder turned deathtrap.
