Be ready to explore plenty of interconnected puzzles with a musical twist in SOLAS 128, from indie developer Amicable Animal.
At its heart, SOLAS is a beam deflection game where you must rotate and reposition mirrors to connect light sources and unlock adjacent puzzles. The twist comes with the inclusion of music; every pulse is moving to the beat at all times, so each puzzle is connected to the next puzzle. The puzzles will collide with each other, creating new color combinations to unlock more doors and new directions to deflect your beams. You also need to pay attention to your timing to unlock paths to new puzzles.
With a synthwave soundtrack and over 150 interlocking puzzles to go through, SOLAS 128 has a lot of challenge waiting for players willing to give it a try. SOLAS 128 is available for the PC and Nintendo Switch.

SOLAS is a game based around the combination and separation of these pulses, but has been designed from the ground up to not be reliant only on colour. SOLAS’ glyphs each have a unique shape and profile, and there are customisable contrast settings, making it accessible to colour-blind players.
