Sometimes it’s the smallest things in the world that make the biggest impact, and I can safely say that about Sixth Extinction. The Sixth Extinction is a game by Polte Games. It may seem like a simple puzzle game, but there is a pretty deep meaning hidden in the game. If you’re smart, the title might give you a little hint about what the game is about, but my review below is spoiler-free and I’ve done my best not to give anything away about the ending of the game. Here’s our review of The Sixth Extinction, in which we solve some cool puzzles and discover a well-hidden bitter truth about reality.
The gameplay of The Sixth Destruction consists of navigating through a puzzle grid where you must complete all conditions before the ending unlocks for you. As you progress through the levels, the requirements change, and some of the intermediate puzzles are also completely different from the general game format. They are represented by a paw that moves with the direction keys and collects different objects that you need to collect to unlock the exit. Some puzzles also require you to solve simple analytical questions which will confuse you if you don’t know how to solve analytical questions.
Still, the puzzles aren’t particularly difficult to play, and if you set your mind to it, you can solve them without too much trouble. The game is very relaxing and you don’t even have to solve puzzles for it. If you get stuck, a Skip button will appear after a while, allowing you to simply skip the puzzle and move on to the next one without paying a penalty. However, I highly recommend completing the puzzles as it is really fun to complete all the puzzles in the game and reach the end of the game as it should be. When you finish a level, you get a short version that tells the story of the game.
Obviously, the plot isn’t immediately clear, and you have to get to the end of the game to really understand what’s going on. When you finally unlock the ending, everything you’ve seen since the beginning of the game becomes clear, and the reveal is stunning. What seems strange at the beginning of the title becomes very familiar, and I loved that feeling. The story is really strong in the game and leaves a deep impression. The ending also stays in your head for a while.
The art style of Sixth Extinction is truly unique and will keep you on your toes throughout the game. It’s really unique compared to other titles in the same genre. The most important thing to note right away is that the game retains its mobile user interface and looks like a mobile game even on PC. While this can be frustrating for many players who want full screen resolution, the gameplay remains the same and the keyboard gameplay is quite smooth. I was a little skeptical about the UI at the beginning of the game, but after I went through a few levels of the game, I hardly noticed it after that.
But the sixth extermination is not long-lasting. Depending on your ability to solve the puzzles and how quickly you do so, you can easily finish the game in an hour. It usually doesn’t take long to solve the puzzles, even if you get stuck on them. Once you get the hang of it, the puzzles are very easy to solve and don’t take too long to complete. Because the game is short and fun, the replay factor is high, and if you have some time to kill, you can definitely come back to the game for a quick run through. For what the game is worth, you get a good hour of puzzles and a great story with a strong ending.
Last block :
Sixth Extinction is a simple puzzle game, and it is until you get to the end of the title, where it leaves a profound message. There are some great puzzles and the narration is excellent. The feeling of not knowing what’s going on throughout the game, and when you finally figure it out, it’s just an overwhelming feeling. Overall, this is an excellent experience with great sound design. While the mobile user interface may put some people off, I can say that if you can get over it, the game offers a solid experience on PC as well. If you like puzzle games, Sixth Extinction will definitely be up your alley with its simple mechanics and puzzles.
