A puzzle game where it helps to have some creativity mixed with a bit of a sociopathic tendency that enjoys killing your clones
What can I say, I have a bit of a weird streak in me, so I tend to enjoy games that have a morbid sense of humor to them. Overloop is one such game, a puzzler where you’ll need to clone yourself and use your doppelgangers in a variety of ways to trigger things so you can proceed. The thing is, you being the original, you’re the only one that needs to make it to the exit of each room and the bad news for your many copies is that they’re utterly expendable. Perhaps that would require a little more reflection if watching them get squished, blasted, zapped, and generally reduced to a bloody mess wasn’t so amusing. One downside is that it feels like it runs a bit shorter than you’d expect, though I suppose there’s something to be said for going out on a higher note. If you’re patient, observant, and have a bit of a mean streak this can definitely be a fun time.
