When you’re looking for something to kill some hours on a budget it’s really easy to appreciate the ability of the indie gaming space to deliver some fun on the cheap. While 6Souls is by no means an amazing puzzle platformer, it’s hard to be too terribly harsh on it when the asking price is so reasonable. Very much playing out in a traditional style, the challenge will be working with what reasonably limited techniques you have to get through levels and hopefully try to pick up as many additional pick-ups as you can as you go. While not generally in the “frequent rage quits” class of difficulty, there are definitely spots where you’ll need to work a little harder than is typical, especially if you’re trying to grab everything you can on each level. While its combat is on the weak and limited side, the platforming controls are at least reasonably responsive, and while it will hardly win any awards it’s a very affordable pick-up that will keep you occupied for a few hours.
