Hello once again my fellow readers, Shaun Meyers (Kyo Akiara) here with my latest review for WaveForm.
WaveForm is a Sci Fi Audio and Sound based Wave Length game created by Eden Industries. The object of the game is to alter the wave length in order to collect various objects within the wave map. Left clicking the mouse anywhere in the wave map allows you to alter the size and length of the wave length. Each object you collect gives you points toward your final score. There are also a number of objects that are called Dark Matter which destroys any objects around you and ultimately damages your object collecting tool in the wave length. If you hit dark matter you also get slowed down, and your speed increases the amount of points you gain so taking too much damage will also cause the map your on to restart after exploding. There is also a sustained bar called a WaveForm where you must stay on the specified purple line which gives a large number of points.
Each map has it’s own set points for full completion but you can still complete the map you’re on by completing the map itself. There are a large number of maps to play as well with 8 planets as well as the ice dwarf Pluto and it’s moon Charon. There are various other modes to play as well including distortion mode which makes the map blurry and (there’s a screenshot of it at the bottom of this article).
A further mode called deep space mode has a leaderboard attached to it allowing you to compete with friends or people from around the world for the highest scores.
The music in the game is superbly well done, and fits the game perfectly. It ranges from soothing ambient trance like music with a sci fi twist, to more jumpy techno trance music also with a futuristic feel to it. I found the music good enough to listen to on its own and to me it was soothing and a bit of a pick-me-up when I was feeling down.
Overall I enjoyed this game quite a bit. It’s a lot different from what I usually play and I’d recommend it to anyone looking for a soothing game to play while you take a break from more stressful gaming experiences (like defeating the Reapers). While it may not be for everyone, the game is great fun to play and offers quite a few hours of enjoyment for a decent price.
Thanks for reading everyone and I hope this article has shown some insight on this great game.
