Another one of the games Playism is bringing to the West, TorqueL is releasing next week on August 11 in North America and Europe for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita. Including cross-buy, it will cost $9.99/£8.99/€10.99.
Described as a “physics-based, side-scrolling puzzle game with a minimalistic art style” by Senior Marketing Manager Nayan Ramachandran, TorqueL includes 50 stages of “death-defying, gravity-reversing, topsy turvy puzzle action madness.”
You play a particularly well-dressed gentleman trapped inside of a box. Using this unusual means of conveyance, our plucky hero must overcome obstacles, avoid pits, and get to the goal of each level.
To do this, you can roll your box around the environment by pushing the left stick in the appropriate direction, but without the ability to jump, getting over pits or up hills is going to be a challenge.
Luckily, you have a trick up your magnificent sleeves. Each side of the box is mapped to one of the four face buttons, and pressing said button “extends” that side. Using momentum and gravity you’ll soon be flying through the air and making your way to the goal in style.
