So, let’s take a closer look at Tepes Ovidiu’s ½ Halfway!
½ Halfway – A Soothing Puzzle About Reuniting
In ½ Halfway, players are transported into a dark, desolate world in dire need of light. The game was created by Tepes Ovidiu while self-isolating during the COVID-19 pandemic. Similar to our current situation, in the game, although things appear bleak, there is hope. To restore back peace and harmony to the world, players must guide two celestial stars to connect at the halfway point of each puzzle. There are different marked squares scattered throughout each scene that can help re-direct your stars movement, block, unlock, or even teleport them. If you happen to collide a star into the wrong box, before meeting halfway, it’s game over.
The game’s levels are broken up into four chapters that become more challenging as you progress. From its sleek minimalist art style to fluid swipe controls, this game takes you on a relaxing journey to restoration. ½ Halfway is a unique puzzler with an uplifting undertone, that everyone should play apart together.
If you enjoy a good puzzler and want a relaxing game that’s also challenging to play, definitely check out ½ Halfway.
