Above is a gorgeous first person puzzler set on a magical floating island and featuring Myst-esque puzzle design in which you must examine your surroundings carefully, use lateral thinking and decipher alien codes.
As you explore the beautiful floating island there are many secrets to uncover, strange alien artefacts to experiment with and codes to decipher. The puzzles that are scattered across the island are modular, so if you get stuck on one (and you will) you can always come back to it later – the answer may come to you when you least expect it (or not). The puzzles in Above are tough, and deliberately so, it’s not meant to be rushed though, the intriguing alien devices are meant to be pondered and analysed.
The obtuseness of some of the puzzles may put some people off, but if you’ve got a little bit of patience, Above is a thoroughly rewarding first person puzzler. Full of beauty, discovery, challenging puzzles and plenty of eureka moments.
