Fast, techno themed, uncover the image puzzler
Volfied is your classic game of uncover the image, but it doesn't hide no naked girls or any other such nonsense behind the curtains, it has a more straightforward, techno/steam punk theme to it. The enemies that you have to dodge when you're drawing your lines also share the same graphic style and the same backgrounds, rarely depicting any more complex a scene, waiting for you to uncover it. The game is also quite fast, and this brings a twitch reflex feel to it, which is a very nice departure from the regular spider crawl speeds of most of these type of games. This can also be a problem for those that might not be as familiar with the genre and not ready to take on the increasingly challenging levels that follow a few relatively mellower ones in the game. The other problem is the lack of very distinct feeling environments; after a while you'll feel that the backgrounds have not really changed too much. But, if you're in for the high score rather than a graphic candy overdose, Volfied will sure provide you with a nice experience. But expect a rather tough challenge.
