[Beyond PlayStation] Refunct Review
3D relaxing Zen-like first-person platformer Refunct from Dominique Grieshofer is one to check out on Nintendo Switch. Find out why in our Refunct review!
For Refunct controls are simple and to the point. You’ll move around in this first-person platformer by using the left analog stick to walk forward, backward, and to the sides, looking around with the right analog stick. Other than that, you’ll be jumping (a lot) by using the R button – which will also allow you to wall jump as well as climb up a platform if you manage to reach one of its edges, and you’ll also crouch or dive with the L button as needed.
The gameplay cycle is also very straightforward since you’ll need to go from platform to platform, changing it from the drab gray color they appear into a brighter grass-like green, as you try to reach the red button that will make more platforms appear before you so that you can repeat the cycle. There is nothing to worry about if you make a mistake and miss a jump since all that will happen is your character will fall into the water that surrounds all the platforms, so you’ll be able to get back on track by going by near one of the lower platforms.
Along with the regular platforms, you will light up when you step over them, you will also run into tubes that will allow you to quickly travel through them, shooting out of the other side. There are also some yellow platforms that act as elevators that will bring you closer to your next objective, as well as yellow pressure plates that will allow you to spring up into action, gaining some extra air time. If you want to 100% this one, then you’ll have to change the color of every platform the game, as well as collect the floating red and black cubes that will appear as you press more and more red switches.
Refunct looks and feels great on Nintendo Switch, and I definitely recommend that you give it a go. It’s available for $2.99, and for that price you’re getting around 30-40 minutes of entertainment thanks to a fun first-person platformer with a very relaxing soundtrack.
