Supposedly inspired by recent platformers such as Rayman Origins or Super Meat Boy, The ARC is a sphere-based puzzle game. The premise is somewhat ridiculous (you’re inserted into a virtual reality to save your boyfriend, I think?), but the gameplay is great. You roll your character around spherical levels, navigating obstacles and jumps along the way. The game’s gimmick is that you can jump three times in the air, and that you can jump in any direction; leading to me chaotically launching my character all over the place. The controls and physics feel just right, and even over the short demo new mechanics were introduced at a steady pace. If that pace can be maintained throughout the game, we’ll almost certainly be in store for a top notch puzzler.
