Euclidean is odd yet interesting game, and with it being Halloween this style of gamer is perfect. The low price makes it a good investment for fans of the genre. If gamers can get past the difficulty level it is worth a few hours of gamers’ time.
If you have access to a VR setup, I recommend using it with this game. There are a lot of settings that optimize the equipment and from what I said this is the way to play the game. Keyboard and Mouse will work or grab the controller. Getting started in the game is going to take a little time. (Hint look up)
The best way to describe the game is a some sort of Lovecraftian Horror novel come to life, which includes the fear of the unknown. This game is very unforgiving even with the difficulty turned down. Players are trapped in this Lovecraftian world and must descend slowly into madness and despair.
While this descent into madness is going on a creepy voice is narrating and mocking players every move. Everything is a struggle just to avoid enemies and keep surviving. Players can phase through objects to prevent damage. This doesn't always work the way it's intended. One hit and it's back to the beginning of the level. It took me several tries to get through the first level and the second level and so. Dying and starting over may have been one of the most frustrating parts of the game but again this game is different than most everything else out there. The game itself is petty short, most gamers will finish Euclidean in a few hours.I think the strongest points of the game are the sound and narration. Both of these help to enforce the non traditional horror elements of the game. This is supposed to keep players on their toes as they progress..
The game has some interesting concepts but it's not going to be for everyone. This type of game is not for me. I really didn't enjoy it. I appreciate what the game is trying to do. I prefer traditional horror games such as Silent Hill or Resident Evil. But Euclidean is $3.99 and it's a bargain if this is a game that will appeal to you. If you have the VR gear and the patience and are looking to experience something different than by all means pick up the game.
Final score 3/5
