Shift Extended - PSP Game Review


SHIFT is an interesting game featuring a bit of humor and crafty puzzles using a single, inventive mechanic. It isn’t without its flaws, but if the $3.99 price tag for only a few hours of play doesn’t scare you off, I’d definitely recommend checking it out. SHIFT is unique due to its inversion core mechanic. Its monochrome visuals are essentially critical to its gameplay execution. The bumpers will reverse gravity and the subject's alignment to everything around him. You can shift from white to black and the other way around, as the results platforms can become pit and things that are previously unreachable can be reached easily. I complete the whole 120 rooms in one day and the real challenge will appear in the last 30 rooms. In fact, you can finish the first 70 rooms in an hour or so. You may think that $4 is a little steep for one day of gaming time.
