You have a daughter. She is unfortunately infected by a zombie virus. The only way to save your daughter is to visit the future laboratory to steal the medicine that is expected to be made by your colleagues. But the future research team is hiding in the maze using mirrors. They decorated the maze using different features of a mirror in each level.

It’s not perfect, but SOMI gets major points for trying something new and exploring mechanics that other games don’t. Maybe it’s time to look a little deeper into the mirror that Retsnom offers and reflect on your own reasons for avoiding indie games.

8 / 10

The game is fairly challenging, the graphics are pixel art and polished, and the unique flipping mechanics make the game stand out from the rest. I had a good time writing my Retsnom review, and I hope you give the game a chance!

I had a great time doing this Retsnom review and plan to go back to the game to get the few trophies I’m missing so that I can add another 100% trophy list to my profile. Its clever puzzle mechanics, great pixel art and interesting premise make this a great PS4 indie release to add to your collection.
