Aurora: Quarantine has an amazing back story as illustrated in the opening movie of the game. In short, the year is 2098 and humans have polluted the Earth thus needing to create new ecological cities. Though the only inhabitants were the wealthy and this created disparity among the poor causing uprising. Cities were guarded by a security institution called The S.I.G.H.T. A rebel group called The Association infiltrated one of the cities, Silverpolis, and stole a toxic substance then modified it into a weapon of mass destruction- destroying all people in the city. In an effort to save Silverpolis, S.I.G.H.T. built orb robots able to explore the ruins humans cannot. Your mission is to find a substance that will neutralize the toxic environment and bring the city back to life. The city is on lock-down with many obstacles to thwart your mission. Can you save Silverpolis?
Aurora: Quarantine is a wonderful mashup of puzzle discovery with ball balance gaming genres! As you play you have to figure out how to explore and find items along the mission. You roll the orb robot around collecting Energy and XP along the way- be careful not to use too much or run out of energy and fail the mission. There are many traps and obstacles in your way- some are hidden. Often times you must hurry, other times you much have patience not to proceed (such as avoiding random unstable explosions).
As you play and achieve goals you will want to upgrade the robot’s abilities to master the game. These abilities are Energy, Speed and Power. There are multiple controls available including Sliding (or swiping finger or mouse to desired direction), Accelerometer to tilt control (keymapping can be set on BlueStacks for this option), Adaptive Joystick (in my opinion the easiest as you can simply slide finger/mouse area screen continuously), and Gamepad if you have a connected controller.
The game gets really intriguing trying to figure out how to collect Energy and XP in seemingly impossible to reach locations, or unlocking bounce abilities, or even balancing along tie-rope like catwalks. There is much to discover in this game and we thoroughly enjoy playing it. Here’s feedback from fellow gamer regarding Aurora: Quarantine and how an enticing demo can result in a purchase…
