Re:Touring from Sometimes You and Malte Weiß is a first-person puzzle game in which you’ll explore the abandoned Luoni Energy Competence Center. As you take on the 26 levels that the game has to offer, you’ll be using a retro-style computer to generate color patterns in order to control doors, platforms, lasers, and more. This is done at a steady pace but without feeling overwhelming so that you can take on challenges at your own pace. Yes, it’s a game that does have a bit of a Portal feel to it, which is not a bad thing!

Re:Touring Review - 1

Since you’ll be playing from a first-person perspective, you’ll control your character with the left analog stick as you look around as needed by using the right one. You can interact by pressing the X button, which is used for pressing buttons, trying to open doors, grabbing yourself a power cube to add some much-needed energy to contraptions, or activating a switch.

 

The game’s main gameplay loop will have you looking at the pattern of colored squares on the walls so that you can interact with a console and establish the rules that will be applied for how colors are written and read. You’ll soon have to decide if one segment runs forward or backward, if you have to set a loop, or if you need to run one sequence, grab an energy cube, fit it into a slot, and then establish a new set of rules to complete the puzzle for that level.

Due to the game’s main gameplay mechanics, there are some accessibility options that make it possible for more people to enjoy Re:Touring. Along with offering additional color palettes for people with visual impairments, there are also closed captions that describe audio. You can also make good use of the included hint system that can provide you with clues to solve the current puzzle you’re taking or even completely solve it if you’re really stuck.

The game offers a full trophy list with a Platinum trophy for you to work on. Said list has 3 Silver trophies and 10 Gold trophies that you’ll have to pop before you can add a new Platinum trophy for your collection. What will you have to do to get that shiny Platinum? You’ll have to solve specific levels within a set number of rules, listen to one of the record players in the game, try to open 15 locked doors, solve two puzzles in a room in the wrong order, sit down to rest in one of the chairs, jump into the water, create an endless loop, purchase all drinks from the vending machine, and finish the game.

 

Re:Touring is a first-person puzzle game in which you’ll explore the abandoned Luoni Energy Competence Center. You’ll be using buttons to create colored sequences to activate contraptions that will allow you to progress through the 26 levels on offer. As new elements are introduced, the difficulty will increase, but you’ll be able to take on puzzles at your own pace, all while having the option to use the in-game hint system or even have the game solve the puzzle for you. Re:Touring is out on PlayStation 5 with a $9.99 price tag. There’s also a PlayStation 4 version available for the same price as a separate purchase.
