Hi Gamers and welcome to another review, today i am reviewing Downward Spiral: Horus Station. so what is this game. Downward Spiral: Horus Station takes players through a lost vessel abandoned by its crew with a complete focus on visual storytelling for single player or two player online co-op. Players will have to piece together the plot through observation and interpretation as they navigate the derelict space station’s environmental storytelling, accompanied by the electronic ambient soundtrack composed by platinum selling HIM frontman Ville Valo. Solving the mystery of the space station will require the player to choose to engage or explore. In engage mode eliminate threats using the ship’s maintenance hardware – like bolt throwers, thrusters, rail guns, grappling magnet and arc welders. In explore mode the stations threats will no longer be hostile, leaving the puzzles and atmosphere to find the truth of why Horus Station has been left drifting in space. In addition to Horus Station’s story campaign, there’s eight-player PvP and PvE multiplayer modes including Deathmatch and Horde.
You start off in the station just with your hand’s and you have to grab the walls to get around the level. the further you go through the levels you will collect useful tools such as rivet guns and arc welders and navigate around the station to find and repair areas of damage. However, the station is not entirely empty, and some of those handy tools will need to be turned towards combat if you wish to stay alive to solve the mystery.
3rd Eye Studios has done a great job on how the game looks, its not the best looking game out there but it has some nice light and shadow effect that bring the station to life. The sound production is very good from the station alarms to the sound of your breathing the developer has done a great job in this area.
I really enjoyed my time floating through the station and fixing the problems. the game can also be played through VR so if you have a VR headset then i would really recommend this game.
Rating: 3.3 (Good)
