[PlayStation 4] Indigo 7: Quest For Love Review
Indigo 7: Quest for love from Dolores Entertainment is a colorful single-player and multiplayer puzzle game on PS4. Check our Indigo 7: Quest for love review!
On Indigo 7: Quest for love from Dolores Entertainment, you’ll be taking on a colorful single-player and multiplayer puzzle game on PlayStation 4 for up to four players. There were two things that popped into my head as soon as I saw the trailer for Indigo 7: Quest for love: Scott Pilgrim and Puyo Puyo. The Scott Pilgrim influence is easy to pick up on as soon as you see the game’s art style, the music angle, and the type of humor the game has to offer. The Puyo Puyo side of things is thanks to the colorful presentation and the lively puzzle pieces you’ll be interacting with – or at least how they become livelier as soon as you turn them into your puzzle pieces!
There are three options for you to take on Indigo 7: Adventure, Single-player, and Multiplayer. Adventure is the game’s main story mode, during which you’ll be experiencing a variety of cutscenes as you take on each of the acts and stages the game has to offer. Main protagonist Nathan, lead for The Life Lovers, has had his heartbroken, and he’s set on finding love, no matter what. This will lead him to fight against other characters that are also potential suitors for Debbie, the new girl of his dreams. You know, in a way that will, in a way, also remind you of Scott Pilgrim. You’ll be completing different objectives so that you can get up to a three-star rating for each one depending on your performance. Depending on the game mode you’re taking on, you could get one star for completing the level, another one for winning with five extra movements left, and completing the level with ten extra seconds on the clock.
As for Single-player, it offers a set of five rounds Vs. the game’s CPU, Conquest, in which you must complete the board with a limited quantity of moves, Conquest Vs. CPU, Time Attack, in which you will gain extra seconds with each move you make as you race against the clock, and Color Attack, which asks that you complete the board using a limited amount of colors. Multiplayer is limited to a five-round Vs. fight against other players, Conquest Vs. in which you must fight to try and conquer the biggest area, and Party Bomb, for which you’ll have to be very quick but careful so that you don’t let the speaker blow up in your face.
The controls are easy to pick up. You’ll learn the basics during the first stage in the game – the aptly titled Tutorial – thanks to the help of Amelia, lyricist and backup singer for The Life Lovers, Karen, the drummer for Bloody Violence, and Guille, the keyboardist, artist, and lover of The Magic Fingers Band – oh, and they’re all part of the same band, which means that, yes, they still haven’t settled on a name for the band. You’ll try to conquer the playing area, which is divided into hexagons. You’ll use the left analog stick or the D-Pad to select between the colors at the bottom of the screen so that you can match with other hexagons of the same color, changing them to show your character’s face. The hexagons that display your face are now yours, and you must do whatever it takes to keep them that way!
You will also need to pay attention to the combo bar on the left side of the screen. You’ll have to work on keeping a combo going so that you can increase the score multiplier for the number of hexagons that you flip so that you can get as high a score as possible in your quest for love. To keep the combo going, you’ll have to capture at least as many hexagons in your next move as you did during your previous move – or, sure, you can also flip more hexagons than the last move. Keeping your combo going is important if you want to win.
As for the game’s trophies, this one has a full trophy list with a Platinum trophy for you to add to your collection. Given the game’s puzzle nature, the good news is that none of the trophies are missable since you can replay the levels in the game’s Adventure Mode, and all trophies are tied to said mode. There are trophies for completing each of the acts in Adventure, as well as for unlocking each of the additional characters you can add to the roster by progressing through Adventure Mode.
If you’re looking for a colorful and fun puzzle game with a new twist, then Indigo 7: Quest for love can certainly scratch that itch. There’s a bit of a learning curve as you get to learn the combo system and better understand the peculiarities of each of the game modes, but then it all clicks with ease. I do have to mention that I ran into a bug that would make it so the game would not recognize any inputs from the D-Pad or the left analog stick to select colors – which forced me to close the game and load it up again – that will hopefully be addressed soon by way of a patch. Indigo 7: Quest for love is out on PlayStation 4 with a $14.99 asking price.
