[PlayStation 5] Almost My Floor Review
Almost My Floor from Sometimes You and Potata Company is a point and click horror detective adventure on PS5. Learn more in our Almost My Floor review!
Almost My Floor from Sometimes You and Potata Company is a point and click horror detective adventure on PS5. The publisher and indie dev combo previously gave us the colorful 2D puzzle platformer Potata: Fairy Flower, so this is certainly a different type of experience! For Almost My Floor, you’ll play as two characters. First up is Alex, who just wants to get to his apartment. Unfortunately, there’s a supernatural journey ahead of him! As soon as he steps into the elevator, deadly monsters start to pop everywhere! The second character is Detective Adam Trust, who is investigating a missing person case that leads him to house #9.
You’ll control your character with the left analog stick as you move a cursor around the screen with the right one. The L2 button can be used to run in order to speed things up. The X button will allow you to interact with objects and other characters. Once you do this, you’ll be able to select between the context-sensitive actions – speak, look, take. To make things easier on you, you can press the Triangle button to highlight everything you can interact with. The Square button is for your inventory, where you can check items you’ve collected or use them to solve puzzles.
As to not spoil things, I’ll talk about a couple of the puzzles you have to complete to progress further in the story. You need to open up a panel to cut the electricity to your neighbor’s apartment so that you can borrow a crowbar, but before you can even think of that, you’ll first have to deal with… a huge spider! You can take care of it by killing it or by being kind and using a cup to remove it from the way. The next puzzle will require that you grab a shield so that you can then use it from your inventory on yourself to block an incoming deadly laser attack! You’ll do this by way of a quicktime event that will have your character blocking several lasers that can kill you in one hit.
The game includes a full trophy list with a Platinum trophy. The list is split into 4 Bronze trophies, 6 Silver trophies, and 9 Gold trophies. The first trophy will pop as soon as you start to play, and most of the trophies will pop as you progress through the game’s story, with one for completing the game, but you do need to keep an eye out for a few trophies that require that you complete some specific puzzles in the game without any help. If you want to speed things up, you could always check out this Almost My Floor Trophy Guide.
Almost My Floor gives us a point and click horror detective adventure that can be completed in a couple of hours at most, depending on your experience with the genre. Taking on the game’s story from two different perspectives was a good choice, and the game’s art style helps to make everything pop. Almost My Floor is out on PlayStation 5 with a $9.99 asking price. There’s also a PlayStation 4 version available for a separate purchase of $9.99.
