Filmechanism is a fantastic puzzle game that has refined an idea to within an inch of perfection. Takes snapshots of the level and navigate the world to restore the snapshot back into life. It all sounds a bit daunting or confusing but it really is an easy game to start and hard to put down. Levels are at a length that fits not only handheld gaming but also short bursts like commuting or when waiting on something. It hardly deviates from the script but that’s not a jig deal as what it does do is entertain and definitely gets your brain working.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
