Hailed as “memorable“, “rewarding” and “a step forward in the genre” in top media previews, the title boasts countless puzzles to solve and a branching storyline – meaning that each playthrough will offer the player brand new things to explore. Magnetic: Cage Closed also features a unique blend of platforming and puzzle gameplay, adding a second twist to the genre.
Published by Gambitious Digital Entertainment and developed by the inquisitive minds at Guru Games, Magnetic drops players into the role of a prisoner serving time for past crimes in a vast, ever-changing prison with chambers that shift in random patterns. The title boasts innovative use of real-life magnetic properties to bring players realistic magnetism-fueled platforming, allowing players the ability to push, pull, slow down or speed up their movement through a series of increasingly complex puzzles.
Rocking a special magnetic gun, players are encouraged and pushed on by a sadistic warden controlling the complex. By manipulating and mastering magnetic forces, they must find a way out – but no choice is without consequence in Facility 7. In Magnetic each chamber offers a unique challenge, ranging from classic puzzles to moral choices.
