Charts and graphs might not seem like the most thrilling things in life, but they provide the basis of this inventive puzzle-platform game. Metrico+ ($14) is an enhanced version of an indie game from the PlayStation Vita handheld, and it challenges your hero to navigate challenging terrain that reacts to your own movements and interactions.
It’s not simply a matter of getting from one place to the next, Super Mario-style, as the bars, lines, figures, and other geometric shapes change based on your various actions. Essentially, you’ll not only need to physically move through the level, but figure out how to do that based on the shifting environment and your abilities. Metrico+ might hurt your brain a little, but hopefully only in a very good way.
