Concrete Genie is an action-adventure game Pixel Opus (known mostly for the 2014 game Entwined), a studio owned by Sony.

Plot

In Concrete Genie you play as Ash, a boy living in a seaside town, who discovers that he has the power to bring the pictures he paints on walls to life.

Mechanics

Concrete Genie is a TPP adventure game. Like in most such productions, the gameplay consists of visiting and exploring locations (where you can e.g. jump from rooftop to rooftop), as well as solving simple puzzles. What distinguishes Concrete Genie from other games are the expansive mechanics of painting and bringing the pictures to life in order to complete the challenges you face. For example, you can paint a fire-breathing creature to burn down a wooden obstacle, or an electric critter, which can power up a locked gate's mechanism.

You paint by using the analog sticks and the gyroscope function, the features of the DualShock 4 pad. The many options and freedom given to the player allows you to create beautiful, colorful and lively (both figuratively and literally) works of art.

Technical aspects

Concrete Genie features atmospheric visuals, in which the grim but somewhat charming city contrasts with Ash's vibrant paintings. Thanks to the well-designed and coherent graphical style, resembling that of animated movies, the contrast is not jarring, but quite the opposite—it gives the game its own distinct identity.


Expectations: 8.1 / 10 calculated out of 36 players' votes.
