Description: Esper is a puzzle game set entirely in a single room. As one of a small number of citizens who have been endowed with the power to move objects with their minds, you have been enrolled by the government to undertake a series of tests to show that you are in control of your powers. Use your psychic abilities to solve increasingly challenging tests and demonstrate that, despite the concerns, you are not a threat to the fragile fabric of society.
Review: Esper is a puzzle game that requires you to use your powers of telekinesis to solve various puzzles and scenario problems. As I would imagine it would be in real life, controlling the power to move things is not easy at all and at first, you will be flinging things all over the place. But that is all part of the learning curve. While I had fun with the learning missions, things soon get difficult and it is not always clear what you can and can’t move with your mind, so often it is a case of trial and error just to find out what you can move, let alone solving the puzzles. Well worth a download, but do be prepared to feel frustrated to the point of annoyance.
