Two of the most used creatures in video games are undoubtedly zombies and aliens. Rarely are they ever used in such a game as Warp. Much like how zombies are used in the tower-defense strategy game, Plants V.S. Zombies, Warp uses aliens in a much more lighthearted fashion. You play as Zero, a rather cuddly, gelatinous looking alien captured for experimentation in a top-secret underwater base. The goal of course is to escape, utilizing Zero’s signature ability to warp inside and through objects at will.
Warp is a top-down action puzzler with a surprising amount of gore and adult language, as well as some truly brain-teasing puzzles requiring the player to have a sharp mind and equally dextrous fingers. Throughout the game Zero can acquire several added abilities which can further add to the complexity of puzzle-solving. Warp offers approximately seven hours of gameplay, but with three different endings more dedicated players can squeeze significantly more playtime out of this title. Warp is also littered with collectibles which can unlock enhanced abilities and concept art for those with a keen eye.
Graphically Warp isn’t anything to write home about, but it’s charm and mind-challenging gameplay more than compensate. Warp is available for download from the PlayStation Store for $9.99.
