Fez is a unique blend of platform and puzzle games, developed by Polytron Corporation. It can be played over PC and Xbox. In this, the gamer gets to play as Gomez, a 2D creature who lives in a 2D world until one day he discovers a strange object called Hexahedron. This object transports you to a three dimensional world where you need to collect the pieces of a broken object to save the world from falling apart.
So, what is the game all about? Well, the aim of the game is to collect a total of 32 cubes and anti-cubes by solving various puzzles. As you collect more cubes, more doorways unlock to new areas. The game is in a two dimensional format where you can jump, climb, walk and interact with objects. You can look at the game from different perspectives by tilting and rotating the camera by 90 degrees on any side which realigns doors, passageways and ladders thus creating new puzzles to solve using different approaches. It is thus complex in a lot of ways but that’s what makes the game more interesting and challenging.
There is so much to do in the game that you cannot get tired of it. There is no time limit or constraints and you can take your time to discover new areas and solve puzzles. In Fez, the gamer gets to work with a companion called Dot, who adds a humor element without being of much use. It’s an original idea which has been executed really well and is quite enjoyable for gamers of all ages.
