You might find the game similar to - Slayway Camp, Tomb of The Mask, AMAZE, Roller Splat, Ninja Painter, and so on. But Orbox game series came out much earlier. The very first Orbox game released in 2004(Russian version). And the English version released in 2005. It was the first popular puzzle of this type. And it made this type of puzzles popular.
Me(Arseniy Shklyaev) came up with the game idea by myself around 1996. First time I made it on ZX Spectrum.
Orbox B: Rebirth has a very classic feeling to it. And it is kinda classic game series. Because the very first Orbox was the first popular puzzle game of this type. What's unique about the game is that it has a lot of game mechanics and thoughtful level design. Level design makes the game very diversified. Combinations of mechanics can create so much different situations. Keeping the game interesting to play and entertaining. The unique score system has 3 types - scores, steps, time. So almost every level can be solved different ways. One way is the best score and the other way is the best steps. Those ways are usually different paths to find.
The basic mechanic of the game to slide between blocks to reach the goal. At the moment there are several types of goals(missions) - get to the exit, blow the bombs, activate sensors, collect crystals, annihilate the plague , break ice. And any combination of those. There are more missions will be added in upcoming updates(2 new missions are already done and will arrive in the new level pack). Swipe to move from block to block.
The story takes place in distant outer space. You play as the pilot of the Orbox. Orbox is a giant machine designed to navigate inside of the Net. The Net is mysterious structure once was a perfect home for humans. Hundreds of years have passed since people had to leave the Net. After the great disaster. Now you are on the mission inside of the Net. Discovering the new place it has become. But things might be not as they seems.
