Noita is a roguelike production developed by independent Nolla Games studio, a team of three developers who have previously worked on games such as Crayon Physics Deluxe, The Swapper and Environmental Station Alpha, among others. The production was created with the PC platform in mind.

Story

In Noita, the storyline plays a supporting role. As we play, we play the role of a magician who travels through the gloomy underground and confronts the dangers lurking there.

Mechanics

In the course of the adventure in the action released on the PC Noita platform we observe from the side, exploring locations and eliminating hostile enemies. The protagonist uses a wide range of elemental spells, which he expands as he progresses. These spells allow him not only to kill enemies, but also to manipulate the game world, which often allows him to get to inaccessible places. By evoking a rainy cloud, we can fill a depression with water carrying the hero upwards; by cooling hot lava, we make it freeze, creating a passage to the other side of the hot lake; and by firing fire bullets into stalactites, we tear them away from the ceiling, dropping them directly on the heads of the opponents underneath them.

It is worth remembering that the creators decided to implement permadeath mechanics, so there is nothing else left for us after death, but to start the struggle from scratch. The issue is further complicated by the fact that individual locations are generated procedurally, which means that during each game we face different challenges.

Technical issues

In comparison to other games, whose graphics were made in pixel art technique, Noita stands out because each pixel here is a separately animated object subject to the laws of physics, which entails the above-mentioned possibilities of interaction with the environment.
