Roterra – A Real Head Turner

Roterra is a charming game. It is also difficult to be critical because it is more than the sum of the parts. The story is, although it is present, fairly fairly vaguely presented; you only know the fantasy story it is based on if you have seen our interview with the project leader. It's not that the story is hard to understand – it's a very cute puppetry approach – but it doesn't offer much context or clear bets as it could with just a touch of text or narration.

The puzzles are ingenious, but sometimes the buttons just aren't quite where they should be.

It has a beautiful papercraft aesthetic like from a child's picture book. Everything looks so erratic that you can't help but be hit by the animations shown; however, the lighting could be better, making some levels feel a bit flat. The sound design also varies in quality, with a charming obstinacy that unfortunately does not evolve so much, is repeated.

The puzzles are ingenious, but sometimes the buttons just aren't quite where they should be. Forced camera angles can make certain solutions more difficult to process or vital blocks difficult to reach. Nothing is unbeatable, but I wonder if the game benefits from some camera or an AR mode where you can physically look around the area.

It is also difficult to be critical because it is more than the sum of the parts.

Yet I fully understand why people thought hard about it. Roterra clicks when you least expect it, and suddenly presents a new comprehensive scenario that shows the depth of such simple mechanisms. The ah-ha moments that you experience are worth not pampering, and RoterraThe ever-sliding world is one that I would like to see again … just a little more polished next time.

Our assessment

Pros Cons
A really refreshing puzzle game with some great block-shifting brain teasers. Improvements in quality of life can be made. Camera perspective can hinder some puzzles.
