The Turing Test – August 2016 [Score: 7.5]

The Turing Test is a wholly familiar game to anyone who has played first-person puzzlers like Portal or Qube or their myriad of imitators: you’re stranded in a facility with a talky AI and have to pass a series of tests using some form of “gun”. In this case, your “gun” allows you to suck up power cores from across a room, and then shoot them as needed into appropriate receptacles. When powered correctly, the receptacles will enact some action, from opening doors to turning on bridges and stairs to powering robots. While the mechanics were interesting, they weren’t so complicated that I couldn’t figure out the vast majority of the 70 levels.

What makes The Turing Test stand out in my mind was the late-game reveal of who you are, and your true role in the scenario. This definitely makes the game work, even with the more simplistic gameplay mechanics. 7.5 out of 10
