    Why couldn't the developers just make the right stick control the camera in all directions like any TPS instead of only left and right? An improved camera and complete removal of the story might make this better.

    Once you get past the brown graphics, weird controls, unaccommodating hard difficulty, needless story, janky gameplay, there is some fun here.

This game does seem to get better after playing it for a while and you get used to the uglyness of it all. Got it for free and it occupied me for hours so it is worth giving it a shot if you can get it for free. Expand

    Not very much to say about this game. I played it for a few hours because its free for PS Plus users. Its a puzzle platformer where you lead the ball you control through several labyrinth levels , collecting items and there also is a time challenge which is pretty hard. At the end of level you can get 3 stars if you collected everything in the time limit. Sometimes this game gets reallyNot very much to say about this game.

  1. Stressful platforming action made infuriating by a bad camera. [January 2013, p78]

    Fiddly controls make this apparently futuristic accelerometer abuser a complete waste of space. [Feb 2013, p.87]
  3. It's not just the ball that will be rolling when you're playing Chronovolt, your eyes will be clocking in overtime too. It might be free if you're subscribed to PlayStation Plus, but you won't be doing yourself any favours by downloading it. It's boring. It's got a ton of bugs. It sucks balls. [January 2013, p.94]
