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.
