Faraday Protocol Review

Introduction

Faraday Protocol is a first person puzzle game that’s split into chapters and levels. Use the Bia-Tool, an ancient weapon, that bends energy and assists in the puzzle solving.

Review

Puzzles? they’ve got plenty! This game was very engaging and at some points very challenging. It has a unique story and there’s plenty to learn as you progress through the levels.

The game starts after you’ve just landed in a mysterious place, which later you find out is called Opis, the puzzles are the way forward and there’s plenty exploration and data discovery.

Use the Bia-Tool, an ancient relic type weapon that bends energy to solve each puzzle and unlock secret cubby holes where collectibles and required objects are hidden.

I really enjoyed this game, it had an interesting story and there was so much to figure out and unlock; the 6 hours it took me went by in no time.

The deeper the story went, the more challenging the puzzles became and, I did get stuck a few times as puzzle games aren’t my usual delight. However this game was intellectual and satisfying in a way I hadn’t experienced before with this type of game.

There was one section that seemed to be missing a few objects, what initially felt integral, for me to progress, however after a little figuring out, turned out that I didn’t even need those objects to continue on, and so it didn’t really matter. I admit a little strange.

If you aren’t usually a puzzle game pursuer, but are interested in this game, or, you play puzzles all the time, I would still recommend starting off with a guide until you know whether you can do without, as there are an abundance of puzzles and some are very extensive.

The level of detail on the objects and atmosphere was pretty impressive and I did take a few moments to look around now and again. The colours and textures were simple yet ideal; attention to detail was definitely a big part of creating this game.

There was music at certain moments that was very simple and seemed a little eerie at times. I liked it as it added to the futuristic feel of the game.

There are two endings, and I recommend experiencing both as they’re both completely different and worth it.
