Inverse Universe

JohnBInverse Universe from FireRabbit, the creator of the Stalker Room Escape series, is a lovely 3D rendered escape game crafted especially for mobile devices. Instead of the usual single room to bust your way out of, Inverse Universe employs a more traditional layout with a dozen or so areas to explore, each with items and clues you'll put to use elsewhere in the game. It's a nice set-up with some good puzzles and a light sense of humor, making it an excellent and extremely mobile-friendly diversion!

Inverse UniverseLike the name implies, Inverse Universe utilizes an alternate world that can be traveled to via mirror. Instead of just slightly altered versions of the same scenery, though, some items are linked between the two worlds, allowing you to reach things on one side by moving things around in the other. Tap the arrows on the side of the screen to walk around your environment, touching objects to take a closer look or to interact with them. Inventory items can be accessed via an icon, and you can quick-hop to different rooms by using the map, a small but quite handy feature!

It's all fine and good to sit and talk about well-structured puzzles or challenging riddles, but the best part of Inverse Universe is its sense of humor. Sci-fi fans will catch more than one reference to popular movies or shows, and you get the sense that the main character is amused to be there. Instead of panicking to escape, it's more like "Hey, let's check out some things, see what we can see", and then you encounter a framed Darth Vader picture. That small difference means a lot when you sit down with the game, and it's exactly what Inverse Universe needed to make it stand above other escape games!

NOTE: This game was played and reviewed on the Nexus 4. Game was available in the North American market at the time of publication, but may not be available in other territories. Please see individual app market pages for purchasing info.
