Inertia Escape Velocity 

 

Inertia Escape Velocity is one of the most unique apps on the Apple iTunes store. It is part platformer, and part puzzle game. There is a little guy in armor that can run around the levels. He can also jump, and then float through as if there was no gravity. My initial reactions to Inertia Escape Velocity were very positive. The more I played this app the more of a nose dive my opinion took of this game.

There are a few colorful areas and screens in Inertia Escape Velocity. Most of them are dark and have this technological feel to it. I think they may have been going for a Borg look. Portions of levels can look exactly the same too. I was in one level, beat it, and the next level started the same. I thought I was repeating the level. Until later on it changed.

The sounds in Inertia Escape Velocity also have a technological feel to it. Due to the control issues expect to hear certain special effect sounds over and over again. I wound up getting a headache from the frustration. Inertia Escape Velocity is also really light on what is going on and why we are traversing these levels.

The controls in Inertia Escape Velocity work marvelously in some instances and frustrated me to no end in others. I wound up just trying to get through the levels, and gave up on collecting all the items. The whole floating aspect is an awesome idea. The implementation is not so awesome though.

Inertia Escape Velocity cost $1.99. There are thirty-five levels. Comparing it to other apps Inertia Escape Velocity is really light on content for the price. I may not be out a lot of money but I felt like Inertia Escape Velocity is overpriced. If you feel like struggling with the controls then you can try and collect all the items and get the highest score on every level.

The lesson Inertia Escape Velocity taught me is to get from point A to point B. Avoid the obstacles and arrive alive. Inertia Escape Velocity has potential to be a wonderful and fantastic game. It fell a little short in my opinion.

I hope to see interesting and innovative ideas from Red Fly Studios in the future. A sequel to Inertia Escape Velocity would be welcome especially if the controls are tightened up.
