Antichamber: any good?

(5 Posts)

Sorry if this is the wrong place to post this.

DS2 (11) is desperate to buy/download Antichamber. It seems to be a sort of geometric puzzle game.

Has anyone tried it?

Not played it but the reviews seem pretty good.

It is good and very clever but it is... odd. Deliberately so. Eg, one of the rooms can only be escaped from if you walk into it backwards rather than forwards.

If your DS likes clever puzzles and is happy to keep trying out different ideas for solving them then he'll likely love it. If he likes Portal he'll probably like Antichamber. If he gets frustrated easily then it will likely drive him up the wall.

Thank you for the input. He loves tricky puzzles; I think we'll give it a try.

He's been playing it this morning and loves it; the only problem is that he has become a bit of a bore about the intricacies of it and I have to feign interest!
