Life of Delta Review.

Share the love...

Life of Delta is a beautiful had drawn visual story-based game based in a world devastated by a nuclear disaster in a post-apocalyptic world.

All life as we understand have been extinct for some time and all that remains are robot, robots, and more robots on and a few evil lizards who generally run the show, you’ll see some animals crawling around the desolated landscapes but other than that its just tin cans and rust buckets, I’m sure the game designers were trying to follow the landscape to fit for an avid Star Wars fan, hey look that’s Tatooine.

In the middle of the nuclear disaster aftermath, we have a loveable service robot called Delta who was due to be discontinued, but just before this he was recued and saved by his new friend Joe, however while joe was taking care of Delta, joe was taken away by the rebellion scum.

During the start of the game, you’ll have to figure out how to save joe by completing tasks and puzzles as one task leads to another task and so forth till you get to the end goal, Delta seems to be a lovely service robot that must help everyone before helping himself, but every action here does is towards the greater good to save joe.

The puzzles in Life of Delta are what makes this game, they’re quiet varied some of them are challenging and some of them have you scratching your head and reaching for google for help, just remember every action you take will need something to be done prior by adding a object or item to be traded.

Controlling from the start was challenging as I found the game not as responsive as I wanted it on the pad, however after playing and getting used to the games mechanics the game started to come into its own and then became quite simplistic and easier to use and understand, regardless of my miss understood way of thinking the controls it become second nature after a short time and there is a hint system if you need any additional help.

Controlling Delta, on a pad can be sometimes challenging having to click several times and thinking your batteries have dies as sometimes it was just unresponsive or I’d not clicked in the correct place, but I think that makes the game a bit more unique.

The language of the robot folk all communication and talk in a very strange language, this works well, and I was thinking kind of sounds like I understand it in some dialogue parts and really love this part of the game they’ve added.

Our Delta meets some strange individuals in his quest to save joe, one of the parts I’d really loved was the monster spider robot looking thing and having to make some crystals for him by melting some glass bottles down, I really love how you put elements together to make an object to complete a task its all highly entertaining.

The sound of the game is well standard and really has nothing more to give the game, they could have maybe given it something a little bit more but maybe I’m just nit picking.

The longevity of the game will give you between 2 and 5 hours and I’m not sure for £16.99 it’s 100% worth it for a point and click game but I’d certainly recommend playing if you’re into this style of game.
