140 

 

Family Friendly Gaming was provided a download code for 140 on Steam. This digital download only Personal Computer video game falls under the indie umbrella. Graphically 140 looks like an Atari 2600 video game. We have a square that turns into a ball when we move to the left or right. This square also turns into a triangle when we jump. 140 is a difficult game that hardcore gamers will thrive on.

Casual gamers will get frustrated by 140 at some point. I got a bit frustrated every time I tried to quit 140. I could not find a way to exit the game. Outside of the ALT+TAB, or the CNTRL+ALT+DEL methods. I guess 140 emulated the Atari 2600 in terms of turning the system off to stop playing the game. The goal of 140 is simple - get the floating circle and take it to the larger half circle on the ground.

The geometric shapes in 140 allow gamers to jump once. There is no double jump in 140. The game levels are a bit on the small side. 140 makes up for that by having the difficulty curve being very steep. The timed jumps as blocks appear and disappear can be challenging. Especially if you have no rhythm. I did find audio clues as to when the transitions would appear.

The music in 140 is upbeat. Some parts of 140 is better musically than others. That could be chalked up to personal musical taste. I enjoyed my time with 140. Even though it aggravated me to no end in some areas. Like jumping forward, and then backward, and then forward again to get through. The static in 140 will send you block back to the last continuation point.

140 is described on the Steam page as minimalist. That is a very accurate statement. I will not argue with that statement in any way, shape or form. Bosses in 140 can be extremely challenging. I wonder if the game developer could port 140 to the Atari 2600 in the form of a physical cartridge? That would be really cool if they could. I am not sure the system could handle the music though. The gaming controller we use on the PC here at FFG worked great with 140.
