Altero Direct Download
Free the spirit of a little boy called Adi, entrapped in a voodoo doll damned to roam the Sorrow Forest. Unite Life and Death in an innovative gameplay with splendid visuals and soundtrack, this is what truly confers Altero its uniqueness. Challenge your best logical skills controlling Adi the voodoo doll and its ghost embodying your past actions to solve a variety of puzzles. Figure out the series of actions to accomplish with the appropriate timing, and sacrifice yourself to face the obstacles as somehow two players. But don’t forget to rescue the lost souls along your way out of the Sorrow forest, it is the only truthful path to redemption. First, I must say that I fell in love with the soundtrack, I would definitely purchase it if it ever gets available. Now, the gameplay is very clever and makes the puzzles deliciously interesting to solve. You need to figure out the pattern your character must follow and die so that its ghost partners with your present character. Don’t worry you start getting familiar with the concept along with the first puzzles. I had a couple of hours of puzzling-fun so far and I like it!
I had the chance to play Altero a long time before, at a convention, so I didn’t want to miss the release. I don’t remember which chapter it was, but I really liked the way it combined its universe and gameplay. You play as a ghost Voodoo doll, and the puzzles usually involve dying so that your ghost can help you. He always repeat what you did before death, so the key is to make him do things like operating a pressure plate for you to advance. This can be pretty tricky, especially when it comes to timing. I appreciated the originality of the puzzles which you have to solve with one and then two ghosts replicating your previous actions. You basically need to understand the help you require, and actually to aid yourself using different timeframes. Quite clever. Regarding the overall game theme, it is rather dark and obviously metaphoric but it is part of what intrigued me in the first place. Let’s see how the end will turn out.
Altero’s Tim Burton-esque art and design make the game shine in a distinct way that’s likely to stick with anyone who plays it. The music has the pleasant mix of Danny Elfman’s whimsicality mingled with the darker and more sinister tones. It lends the game a pleasantly unsettling atmosphere that simultaneously implies both hope and innocence, mixed with the warning that things aren’t safe in the greater world. Those of you who’ve read any of my other reviews know that I’m a sucker for a good score, and Altero really nails it for me. The art similarly has that Corpse Bride or Nightmare Before Christmas style – the large eyes and bulbous heads that are meant to be charming, while the rest of the art is looming, dark, and stylized toward the sinister. Your character is clearly meant to show a bit of innocence in the oppressive atmosphere that surrounds him. If you’re a current or former goth, scene, or spooky kid, you’re probably going to appreciate this one quite a lot.
