Review: Solaright is a 3D sliding puzzle game in which you need to get electricity from one place to another. It might sound simple, but it is a real challenge at times and with 30 levels to play by the end ones you will be pulling your hair out. But the actual gameplay is simple to learn and soon gets you into the game. While for some reason I did find the game incredibly nauseating when spinning around the cube I do put a lot of this down to the lack of background scenery meaning the game is quite sparse. While it isn’t worth anywhere near the £6.99 asking price you should keep an eye out for it in a good sale, but I feel you will get more out of this game if you get it in a cheap bundle of games. Not a terrible game at all, just a little basic.
