Alter: Between Two Worlds, a promising adventure-puzzler, sees you venturing out on a soul-searching journey through a lost desert temple that seemingly holds some mysterious power.
Play as Ana who’s journey has led her to a lost desert temple holding mysterious powers. Help Ana on her soul-searching adventure about grief and happiness. Guide her through diverse and fantastical areas, collect atoms to progress and complete her quest.
Players will discover meticulously designed levels illustrated with beautiful hand-crafted art. Through simple and accessible controls – simply move, and push – the player will solve imaginative and mind bending puzzles.
Every level focuses on the main feature of having the ability to switch back and forth between the two worlds. In addition, the player is able to interact with a variety of environmental elements (platforms, blocks, switches…) and to face multidimensional enemies.
It’s the latest from indie publisher Crescent Moon and first-time mobile developer Fivestones Games, and it’s heading to iOS on May 27th.
Its tale is one of grief, recovery, and eventual happiness, and it’s all told through impressive hand-drawn art.
The puzzles here revolve around switching between two distinct worlds, hence the game’s subtitle.
Controls are said to be simple and intuitive, requiring you to simply move around and push the occasional object.
Crescent Moon consistently puts out interesting, enjoyable, premium mobile games. Some of my recent favourites include Echoes of Aeons and Legend of the Skyfish 2.
Alter: Between Two Worlds is now available for pre-order from over on the App Store as a premium title priced at $2.99. Its official site also mentions an Android version, though its release is likely to follow.
