Don’t expect to be blown away, but should you fancy spending sometime with a reflective puzzler, then Samsara will get you thinking.
Samsara is a pleasant puzzle game that doesn't quite challenge enough to give you the unique satisfaction of the “ah-ha” moment when you solve something particularly difficult.
Samsara is the closest thing you’ll get to a yoga workout for the mind. It’s a thoughtful puzzle game which utilises a simple mirror mechanic throughout each of its seventy-plus levels, and the combined effect of a gentle learning curve and a soothing presentation is a brief, but charming experience.
Samsara is a visually attractive puzzler that plays out on two planes. Trying to simultaneously navigate Zee and her shadow self to their respective doorways by manipulating the walkways with placed blocks is a tricky thing to do. With limited blocks, and endless lives, trialling different solutions and seeing what works and what doesn't is a fun and rewarding experience. There are always surprises hidden; whether it's weird deaths or getting Zee trapped between a rock and a hard place. Figuring out these puzzles is a fun little diversion, and Samsara is well worth the time to solve some puzzles.
Samsara is quite a good game that was incredibly badly executed. Fun gameplay mechanics are paired with lackluster graphics and music. The only saving grace is introduction of second character that make us think about both the heroine and her shadow.
