Boson X a “maverick physicist conducting high-energy experiments,” where you perform those experiments by running and jumping around the inside of a #particlecollider. The (still available) free version last August, and now it’s getting a more robust #Steam release today.
Build up speed inside a massive particle accelerator and generate high-energy collisions to discover strange new particles. Use precise timing and fast reflexes to navigate a subatomic world where floors and ceilings don’t exist. Be fast enough to find the elusive Boson X.
- Fast-paced, unforgiving gameplay
- 18 challenging levels to master
- 3 highly qualified physicists to play as
- Steam leaderboards and achievements
- No superfluous powerups, coins or XP systems – just deadly serious scientific research
Details and a trailer are waiting for you below, in the testing chamber.
Steam contains a few of these ‘runner’ games now, though the rotation mechanic is a little bit left-then-right-then-left-again of the norm. You can sprint through those tubes as either one of two human professors, or as “the rodent-controlled robotic lab assistant”, though I’ve no idea if there’s any difference beside the player model. You can also sprint through eighteen different levels and compete for faster times on leaderboards.
It sounds pretty straightforward then, which accounts for the $2.99/£1.99 price tag. If you need convincing, the free version is still available for download for Linux, Mac, and Windows PC via the Boson X site.
