Capsule Review: Right Click To Hack

Made for a game jam, this is a short and unpolished 3D puzzle platformer in which you must control several robots with different abilities and use them together to progress. The title references the game’s signature mechanic - any robot you have line of sight on can be taken over by right-clicking on it, so you must position the robots and use their abilities in turn. The game does an impressive job telegraphing what each robot can do and implying a personality through its design - visually, mechanically, and musically. As a result, while the puzzles don’t feel especially new or innovative the robots are a lot of fun to use. I’d love to see this concept expanded and polished.

I Stopped Playing When: I finished the game.

Docprof's Rating:

Three Stars: Good. I liked the game enough to finish it (or just play it a bunch, for games that don't end). I recommend it to most genre fans.
