Spaera Announced For Xbox One

By Joseph C, 1 year ago
Indie developer Blazing Orb has announced that their head-to-head combat puzzler Spaera is coming to Xbox One.  Spaera’s premise states that the balance of the universe has been disrupted, resulting in “a fused multiverse governed by orbs and blocks”.  The game sees opponents facing off against one another, choosing from a lineup of eight characters, each with unique abilities, to solve puzzles and win the battle.  You’ll get the obvious Testris vibe from this one, but with the added twist that players are not simply placing blocks to fill lines, but using their characters’ abilities to shift the tide.

In the teaser trailer we see the eight characters: Luna, Leon, Pone, Tsubaki, Setter Z, Joseph, Rafael, and Harland.  We also get an extremely brief glimpse at one of the characters’ powers in action, as Pone leaps onto the screen and smashes a bunch of the existing blocks off of Player 2’s screen, although we don’t see the outcome of this destruction.  Hey, that’s why it’s called a teaser.  Check it out for yourself below.

Spaera does not have release date info at this time.  We’ll keep you informed when we know more.

I've been gaming practically my whole life, starting around when I was 5 or 6 years old with an Atari 2600 and progressing through nearly every console ever released apart from the Wii U. I'm a completionist by nature, but am trying to move away from chasing every-higher gamerscore and just focusing on enjoying the great games that are all around me. We'll see how successful I am. I've been on TA since 2009 but have become much more active on the site in the past couple of years, and look forward to seeing it grow now that the XB1 app is getting it some much-deserved exposure!
