Trancelation is an unusual puzzle game with arcade elements created by MythicOwl studio in Warsaw. Until now, this developer has been known primarily for educational games designed mainly for mobile devices. W Trancelation Varsovians are trying to use their experience in creating both types of production.

Mechanics

W Trancelation There are two play modes. In the first, the main, players take control of the luminous marker. In the upper right corner of the screen a word appears, and on the board a few random words in another language. The aim is to match the given phrase with its translation. Points are credited for each paired word. If the player goes particularly well, a multiplier is activated, which allows the player to achieve an even higher score. The second mode, an additional one, is devoid of logical-educational elements. The task of the player who controls the luminous marker is simply to collect coloured rings from the board. In both variants of the game there is a time limit, so the key to achieve the best possible result is to stay in motion at all times. As a result, the gameplay is very dynamic.

Moving through levels in Trancelation is not an easy thing to do. Numerous obstacles and enemies stand in the way of the player. The former should be avoided, the latter can be fought and protected from them by means of bonuses (bombs, shields and additional lives) gained during the game. Of course, the further you play, the higher the difficulty level, the time limit decreases, and the dangers on the boards appear more.

Technical issues

W Trancelation players move on two-dimensional boards. The action is shown from above, although it is possible to slightly modify the angle of the camera. The levels prepared by the creators are very colourful and there is a lot going on. The background is animated, neon flashes on all sides, obstacles and enemies are constantly moving, and each contact of two elements ends in a spectacular flash. This is in line with the character of the game, which promotes fast moving around the maps. The soundtrack completes the whole thing. It consists of dynamic trance songs, which make it easier to achieve the right tempo while having fun.

The psychedelic atmosphere created using the above elements is intended to have a strong impact on the players. They are supposed to fall into a kind of trance through which it will be difficult for them to break away from the game.
