Well, the best way I have to describe the game is "Super Meat Boy meets Portal" aka "Reach the chamber exit fast and without dying".

Sounds easy, uh? It is! Except for traps, lasers, lava waterfalls and the ever spinning saws. Levels are designed to kill you (and they will, often) and you'll find that the only way to reach the exit door is to exploit the level itself with a sequence of running, jumping, wall grinding and wall jumps.

If you:

  • like fast action games
  • are not afraid to mercilessly die, die, die before completing a level
  • are a masochistic hardcore gamer
  • like to battle to reach the best leaderboard positions
  • know what a ragequit is

then, this game is for you :D

Gearscape will be available on many platforms, including:

  • Windows, Macintosh and Linux computers (keyboard or gamepad)
  • iOS and Android tablets (touch controls)
  • OUYA game console (gamepad)

I tried Gearscape, and though I was a pain-in-the-*** betatester, I have to say it's an awesome game, with a lot of verve :)

To add to this here is a quick Pros and Cons of what I liked

Pros
- Really love the art style. It feels really crisp and fits great with the game.
- The physics are spot on
- It feels very satisfying to master a level
- Music is awesome!
- Leaderboards and Global Stats are a nice touch
- Each level feels unique and takes a different skill to master, lots of new things introduced at a great pace (Great accomplishment in a game based on having lots of levels)
- Good pacing with the learning curve and training levels

Cons
- For long term play, there aren't very many levels (Obviously more of coming)
- The data disks seem to do nothing (If they do something, it is not apparent)
- The timer should count hundredths of seconds since the final time is counted this way. For example the in-game timer reads 3.5, but my final time is 3.57 - they should be in the same format.

Other than that it's hard to complain about anything - the game seems very polished for a beta, and I haven't found encountered any bugs. Looking forward to seeing how the game develops!
