Crush 3D has been getting a bit of hype, though it is one of the lesser titles as of now. This game was deemed, however, to be important enough for a pre-released demo. This game by Sega is definitely innovative and allows the player to create logical impossibilities, kind of like the movie Inception. However, instead of entering a dream world, you are in the world of the unconscious. Check out the preview after the break! -Ryan BaxterSigmund Frued once said “The conscious mind may be compared to a fountain playing in the sun and falling back into the great subterranean pool of subconscious from which it rises.” This means that the process of thought is simply a spouting of the unconscious that doesn’t include all thoughts, but cannot pull ideas from outside of the unconscious. When the mind finds information that would be detrimental to the mental process and overall health if it were dwelt on, the mind uses a defensive mechanism called repression. This simply means that we don’t bring the information into our conscious. In Crush 3D, you must travel through the unconscious mind discovering memories.
To access the unconscious, you use a machine that your oddly older friend created called C.R.U.S.H. You collect marbles in each stage, until you have enough to open the portal to the next level of unconscious. Now, you may be thinking “Sir Ryan, this game seems rather simple from your explanation.” This is simply not true. The game includes many moves that are simply impossible, including long jumps above nothingness and platforms with large walls you have to get around placed immediatly in the center. Now you many be saying “That sounds too hard!”
This is also a statement to be laughed at. The game allows you to view the world from different angles and then flatten it into a 2D image, making that impossible jump fairly easy! And as if that isn’t enough, you can be allowed hints as well! This game is one to be considered for purchase, and it is now available at GameStop, so there is no wait to enjoy it’s magic! However, if you aren’t willing to make the blind $20 investment, there is a demo available on the eShop. Regardless, it’s definitely a game to look into!
