‘Flux Caves is a 3D puzzle game. My plan is to create something which can be a challenge, but still you enjoy to play. I want to create a soothing environment and this is enhanced by slow piano-based music. Big inspirations came from the Witness and from Zelda: Breath of the Wild dungeons, Sokoban and the classic Pipe games. ‘

Graphics

For a game that’s free, Flux Caves looks amazing. Everything is well lit and really pleasing on the eye. Puzzles look great and outdoor areas are really really well done. There’s nice ambience outdoors and the puzzle caves look great with their neon glow

Gameplay

The puzzles have a simple goal. To get the ball to reach its destination by completing the pipelines, once you’ve completed the pipeline a certain number of balls have to reach the goal in order for the next door to open. It’s wonderfully simple yet absolutely fantastic, there’s real satisfaction in completing a puzzle and it’s thoroughly enjoyable. It’s also really cool to have puzzles to complete as you reach the puzzle caves as it were. 

As you progress there’s also crystals to move to specific coloured slots in order to move balls along the pipelines quicker. It’s a simple but again really enjoyable addition to make puzzles harder but also more rewarding. It’s great using a crystal to get the ball to jump from one pipe into another! 

Overall 9.5/10

Flux Caves is an interesting, exciting 3D puzzler with loads of great and challenging puzzles. The caves and outdoor area look great and it’s a really enjoyable experience
