If you like tiny anthropomorphic batteries, then you'll love Volt. Take the role of the adorable Volt as he tries to escape a menacing recycling facility. You'll have to grapple your way through over 60 levels in order to make it to freedom, and fight four bosses on the way. Do you have what it takes to bring this cute little battery to safety?
The dark toned graphics punctuated with bright reds and blues set a great stylistic example. The gameplay manages to be increasingly complex while utilizing simple controls and principles. Volt is a adorable character and has a memorable Wall-E type of feel about him.
Volt can take a limited amount of hits, but since the game relies on momentum for him to power through levels, the same enemy may get several cheap hits on you resulting in a game over. The game, while playing well, doesn't particularly innovate in any area. Although the stylistic choices are sound, they can feel derivative as the whole "dark noir" look is so rampant these days.
Volt is a sound physics puzzler and it does what it sets out to do well. It's not particularly ground-breaking or innovative, but if you're looking for a game that has refinement and great controls, you could do a lot worse than Volt.
