Sine Mora Hands-On: Video of the Day

Oct 31, 2013

Sine Mora is a weird and mystifying game. There’s a plot line about vengeance and war, but with anthropomorphic creatures? And time travel is involved? Well, it’s about as difficult to comprehend as every other shoot ’em up out there. After a review on the site mentioned how beautiful the game was, I figured it would be a good time to show this one off as the video of the day.

And boy, this one is a looker. Of course, don’t get caught staring for too long: this is a bullet hell shmup, where navigating your ship through endless streams of bullets is the objective. It’s not easy. At all. The ability to slow time down helps a lot. That the game is now being controlled with a virtual stick doesn’t make things any easier though, and unfortunately there’s no obvious gamepad support, especially not HID gamepads. The game is on Ouya as well for those interested.

The game is rather visually intense, so it’s worth playing this on a powerful device if possible. Hardware at about the 2012 Nexus 7’s level was certainly playable, but it could have been a lot better. Still, the game is impressive-looking, and puts up a mighty challenge, though a forgiving one due to its time-based system, where death only happens when the clock hits zero.
