Description: Orichalcum Pictures presents Ryte – The Eye Of Atlantis. A VR experience that takes you through an epic journey as you travel back to the ages of mythical Atlantis. This ancient Greece and Myst-inspired VR adventure game, has players discover an authentic depiction of what historians and philosophers like Plato or Herodote imagined the long lost fantasy civilization of Atlantis to be.

Review: To be fair ‘Ryte – The Eye of Atlantis’ has been a long time coming and the good news is there is a lot to like here. With an Assassin’s Creed style storyline and some quite taxing puzzles, this game gets you thinking and exploring which are the key parts to any adventure game. It looks good most of the time, without being too overcrowded or confusing. Sadly the game does leave you wondering what to do next far too often and didn’t help at all, then at the last puzzle I came across a game-breaking bug in which the piece of the puzzle wheel vanished never to be seen again.

If you listen to every seashell and take as long as I did to solve the puzzles you should get a good few hours of gameplay here, but the full asking price of £15.49 still seems a little steep for me, but having said that it is in a sale at the time of review for just £12.39 which I think is a little more reasonable. While this game isn’t perfect there is a lot to love here, just maybe wait for a sale to get better value for money.
