Genre: Adventure

Inspired by 60s pulp sci-fi movies, Albedo: Eyes From Outer Space is a first-person adventure game. Working as a night-watchman at a partially abandoned, secret research facility, you are knocked unconscious by a nearby explosion. Waking in the complex’s basement you look up and see a gaping hole in the ceiling. Escaping the damaged building is only the start of your troubles and as you begin to explore the base you encounter strange, unearthly organisms. Is this all because of some sort of biological experiment gone wrong? You’ll need to fight for survival as you unravel the mysteries and solve the problems that lie ahead.

The idea behind Albedo is a cool one, but it's one that doesn't feel like the idea fully panned out. I appreciate everything the game does offer, especially as I hear it was created by a one man team. I just wish it had more polish and felt better to player.

Albedo is one of those games that, with a few small changes, could have been quite decent. The shlocky sci-fi B-Movie vibe is a good one to utilise for an adventure game, and it's definitely the most unique facet of Albedo, but sadly, as a game, it never quite maintains any kind of consistency to recommend it to anyone but the most patient and understanding of adventure game fans. The game's protagonist often says 'I see something' without any clue as to what it is he's referring to. That sums up Albedo all too well.

There's a promising idea at the core of Albedo: Eyes From Outer Space, but this potential is unfulfilled thanks to logic breaking puzzles, clumsy combat and a plot that doesn't live up to the B-movies it tries to ape.

Even more impressive, according to one of the game's trailers, is that the whole affair is the work of one-man developer Ivan Venturi. Fetching a neat $14.
