TorqueL -Physics Modified Edition-
Top Critic Average
TorqueL is a unique 2D spinning action game where you try to reach the goal by rolling and stretching a box which contains your character. In order to get over obstacles that you normally can’t just by rolling and stretching the box, you have to roll while extending the box to jump and fly across these obstacles. This provides a new kind of challenge as you need to carefully control the box making the physique and torque interesting elements of the game.
Reach the goal to move on to the next stage (chamber). There are chambers with a number of goals to choose from. There are seven routes that branches out depending on which goal you choose. There is also one secret route you can enter when you meet a specific requirement. Reach the colored goal at the end of each route to finish the route. There are 50 total chambers with seven basic routes and one secret route. You can also enjoy the background music composed by Denji Sano (a.k.a. Sanodg), a well-known music composer, which uniquely plays along with the movement of the box.
TorqueL -Physics Modified Edition- is an interesting puzzle game with a minimalist art style and a good challenge. The core gameplay mechanics are interesting and feel different from other puzzle games, and it's a release that the speedrunning community will have a lot of fun with.
I definitely enjoyed some of my time playing through the campaign, but I never felt that the gameplay ever really clicked with the level design. The art and sound design also leave much to be desired, and can sometimes even be straight up irritating. There may be good value for those who prefer a straightforward platformer with an interesting hook, but for others who want a little more than a one-trick pony I would think twice before downloading TorqueL -Physics Modified Edition-.
