In this creepy and unsettling world known as The Womb, where you find yourself performing a series of dangerous tests for unseen watchers, it's interesting that you're called a 'weapon' when all you can really do is run and change gravity in the beginning. Lacking the very important ability to jump, you must pass the tests by changing the pull of gravity in Gabriel Robertson's platform puzzler adventure. Inversia is a high difficulty action filled game where you must dodge enemies, fly over spikes and find the way out of the level only to face a new and harder challenge. Things are ever changing with every room having a new twist, a new trick, and a new challenge for you to try and overcome. You can play with whatever feels more comfortable, with your choice of the [WASD] or the [arrow] keys to move and either [Z] or [M] to switch gravitational pulls... but only when your feet are touching the ground. You'll need the security of these keys, because this game is going to test your reflexes and your stress meter even with the more comfortable hand position. Nothing comes easy in Inversia.
The first thing you'll realize about Inversia is that the levels are long. Filled with rooms, some are more like mazes where you must survive long enough to collect the colored keys to get to the exit. Because the levels just keep getting longer and longer and the enemies more complex, you're going to have to make sure your computer is powerful enough to handle it, since any bit of lag is a game killer, though thankfully there is a GFX adjust button on the menu which does wonders for those with slower machines. Which is great, because this is one of the most innovative games I've played in a long time. Though the levels are lengthy, there was never a time I found myself bored with what was happening on screen. Everything is kept fresh enough that you'll be wishing for something similar so you can beat it easier. There are also boss battles that break up the gameplay, but everything is done so smoothly it all just flows. To top it all off, there is a mysterious and chilling storyline that keeps you pulled in. So even if you are dying over and over again, everything about this game will make you keep coming back and striving forward, again and again.
