Relicta is a great puzzle game, which reminded us of Portal or QUBE 2. Each level is based on psysichs, gravity and magnetism, and it also has a great sci-fi storyline. But it gets repetitive after some hours of play.

The Spanish studio Mighty Polygon has given us a pleasant surprise with its puzzle game. Despite having a very small number of developers, they have achieved a game that can compete from one to the other with other greats of the genre such as The Turing Test or QUBE 2.

A puzzle game with some very neat ideas, damaged by sketchy voice acting and a strange premise for the puzzles themselves. Relicta is mostly a good mental challenge.

If you loved every minute of Portal, The Witness, Obduction, or other sorts of puzzle adventures then Relicta does have something for you. But it's not as well polished as those titles, and doesn't offer as much creativity in puzzle solving, or variety in the puzzles themselves.

Relicta is a puzzle game that tries to be like The Talos Principle and Portal, but falls flat. The gameplay mechanics, as well as the physics, are a solid and fun experience. However, it falls short due to a weak story, terribly written dialogue, repetitive puzzle design, and various technical issues. If you're looking for a puzzler that you can easily find exploits in for a speedrun, check this out. But, if you're looking for a puzzler with replayability, where you have to utilize creative thinking, and the puzzles are all uniquely designed, then look far, far elsewhere.

As it currently stands, I can only recommend Relicta to the hardcore lovers of physics-based puzzles.

Relicta tries to strike a balance between narrative and gameplay, but that balance ends up hurting the final experience by making the game a slog to go through and puzzles becoming infuriatingly complex in the second half. The story and excellent voice acting are a nice differentiator and the level of detail in the environments is impressive, but Relicta is a game that is hard to stick with in its second half if you don't have a guide.

Relicta is an intriguing puzzle-game, full of puzzles ready to squeeze our meninges without the slightest regret. The level design proves to be up to a production on the genre, although some bugs and inaccuracies end up not making it shine as it should.

Simply put, Relicta is in a class of its own. Its design is often head and shoulders above many of its contemporaries, the writing is of the highest quality, and the game looks far better than it honestly needs to. Absolutely anyone who considers themselves a fan of the genre owes it to themselves to play this game. It'll take you to the moon.

If you like a bit of brain strain and some lovely visuals with a decent science fiction story to top it all off then you will most likely love Relicta
