Fun but needs tweaking
Very much worth a dollar. The game was fun, I liked it, new ideas and the levels were clever sometimes. The bad part was the block recall button wasn't explained to me until I figured it out in the last level, on the last puzzle...
They explored fun ideas only once, like the rotating room bit, and kept to more stable pieces like buttons and push pads which I found a little on the predictable side.
I wish there was more to do with the whole polarity aspect of the game, other than 'be blue or red to not die'. I think if you add pulling or pushing yourself (depending on your polarity, like a magnet) and the room rotation bit, the game would be much better.
If you like portal this is for you
I am a huge fan of portal, but this game is not far from the actual concept of portal. The levels are pretty tricky at times but not that hard. The reason I havent given this a 5 star is because the controls are jumpy, and theres a few bugs that need to be fixed (found a couple of glitches) but overall this game has massive potential to improve and dominate the mobile gaming world
Buy it, don't hesitate
If you love portal, then this is totally worth getting. It'll probably remind you of portal, but it's pretty original. The ability to throw cubes, explore levels looking for data fragments, and the ability to walk through special walls is only some of it. Polarity only has 12 levels but they'll take you at least a few hours to beat, and by that time you'll definitely be happy you got this! Support the developers so they can update the app and give it even more features! Polarity deserves to be 10 times more popular!
