Lucid Cycle is a short, first-person perspective walking sim with puzzle solving that offers unique dream experiences and includes a bit of puzzle solving and platforming.
Have you ever wondered what your dreams mean? This game can help. Dreaming is a big part of being human and this game dives deep into the subconscious to awake us from the inside.
I really enjoyed this experience, the music was very soothing and helped keep me calm when I momentarily struggled with a platforming section, which is something I always struggle with, however it wasn’t difficult and I got through it with ease. Each dream sequence was a little repetitive, but hey, it’s dreams, what do you really expect?
The colouring, textures and detail in each object; from a flower blowing in the light breeze, to the clouds in the sky was quite impressive for the price tag and kept me engaged throughout.
The puzzles themselves were very simple and fun to solve. With each puzzle being so different from the last, I never got bored and actually enjoyed the challenges they brought.
For those trophy hunters out there, it offers a very easy platinum that can be achieved in about 2 hours. And it’s the perfect game for playing after completing a longer, more challenging game, or if you’re just looking for some good, fun puzzles; this game delivers.
I had no glitches or issues and the gameplay was smooth throughout, which meant perfect focus and full-steam ahead with the experience.
- Textures and colouring
- Smooth gameplay
- Short game
- Platforming if not used to it
- Camera angles at times
Really enjoyable and just the right amount of puzzles for me, which isn’t something I’m used to, so for a newbie puzzle solver, it’s perfect. The music was very soothing and the overall experience was fun and rewarding.
