Critic Reviews for Subaeria
Somewhere, deep in the heart of Subaeria, there is an exciting and action packed puzzle game. Unfortunately, just like the dystopian underwater world the game presents, it is so deeply submerged that you'd never see it from the surface. Rather than the deep blue ocean though, it is a roguelite structure that hides what works about Subaeria, rendering its achievements impotent with toxic pacing and progression issues. It's a shame, as Subaeria showed promise.
Overall, once you get into the groove, Subaeria is a fun puzzle game. If you're a fan of roguelikes and puzzle games, then you might be ready to give this one a shot. The graphics are very polished, and the gameplay mechanics are indeed different enough to make it stand from other puzzle games or roguelikes. The concept is clever, there's a good variety of puzzles to solve, but there is room for improving the game if the team adds more variety to the randomly generated rooms.
Subaeria is a different type of action puzzle platformer with some roguelike elements. You'll end up dying a lot, but you'll make some progress with every run as you unlock new apps, boosts, and perks to change how you approach your next run. Once you get into the groove, your runs will flow without issue.
Subaeria is a title that has loads of potential but suffers from a mix of poorly implemented roguelite mechanics and bugs. At present ,it's not a title I can wholeheartedly recommend. However ,the issues mentioned can be patched out and hopefully soon as Subaeria has the potential to be a great action puzzler.
Subaeria has to be one of my favorite Roguelikes of the year. I've played a few so far but the depth of the back story, the construction of the environments and the fact that Styx is only human all come together very well. There are no super human abilities here, just random technological hacks that aid our would be vengeance protagonist on the way to her final goal regardless of what stands before her.
