Naught Reawakening Review [iOS]

naught_iconNaught Reawakening is a game that seems quite normal at first but then turns your entire world upside down. Naught Reawakening is an adventure platform game, but not in the traditional sense that you might be used to. Instead of you moving the character around a world, you are instead moving the world around the character with gravity playing a major role in the process. So in the literal sense, you really are turning the entire world upside down.

In the game, you are playing as the character Naught who sets out on a journey to help keep the shadows from over taking his world and to keep “her” safe. The “her” in the game I’m assuming is someone he cares about and is trying to protect. The story isn’t actually that apparent while playing as most of the time, you’ll just be focusing on the gameplay and trying to complete each level.

I talk about gameplay because it really is quite unique here. In platform games, you usually move your character around the level to get to the end. Naught Awakening is way different. Like I said at the beginning, you instead rotate the world around and Naught traverses the world based on the direction of gravity. Again, it’s quite unique and a bit disorienting at first, but you get used to it and start to appreciate just how different this game is.

Aside from the gameplay, the visual and audio presentation in Naught Reawakening are also very well done. The graphics looks really good and have a real dark and ominous feel to them while still being quite beautiful. The sound effects in the game are very well done and really help give the game a creepy atmosphere.

If you’re really into platform games, consider checking out Naught Reawakening. There are plenty of levels to keep you busy and the diverse gameplay is quite different from your traditional platform game with a very unique control scheme. I don’t think I’ve ever seen another game like this before so I do think it’s worth a look.
