PS5 Review: Re: Touring

Is this first-person puzzler worth your time?

Re:Touring is a first-person puzzle game in which you’ll explore the abandoned Luoni Energy Competence Center. Using a retro-style computer, you’ll create colour patterns to progress through the levels.

Re: Touring looks a lot like other first-person puzzle games like Portal, QUBE and The Turing Test with its abandoned facility and room after room of puzzles. This game has you go into in a room that has a computer in it and set up a pattern of colours that will activate certain doors, lifts or walkways for you to continue. It starts out simple, but gets a lot tougher as you progress.

I do like how the game throws you into the mix of things from the off, though it may prove daunting for some. The difficulty level definitely amps up as you try and figure out what to set the colour of the buttons to and start the sequence. Sometimes you’ll stumble across the right solution and not know why, but it mostly requires a lot of practise and patience to overcome. Unless you go and cheat by looking up the answers, that is.

The visuals are impressive and give that classic sterile environment that you would expect from a game like this. The framerate is consistently smooth and never dropped, while load times were short and I didn’t come across any glitches through my playthrough.

The Verdict

Re: Touring is a tough first-person puzzler that takes its aesthetic from the likes of Portal. It may not be as memorable as it, but it does provide a good challenge and will definitely test your brain and your patience well.

Score: 7.0
