  • Summary: Teslagrad is a 2D puzzle-platformer, where you play as a young lad who suddenly finds himself embroiled in an ancient conflict that will shake the foundations of his entire existence, and bring a gruesome truth to light.

    The game revolves around the use of electricity and magnetism, and
    your ingenuity will be put to the test as you employ the amazing technology of the Teslamancers to traverse the abandoned Tesla Tower. The game is completely devoid of both text and dialogue, and prefers to tell the story purely through visual means. Collapse

    Even with that similarity, though, Teslagrad still has a look and a feel all its own — which, as I said up top, is what helps set it apart from all those other great puzzle-platformers. At the same time, though, as much as that sets it apart from the likes of Braid, Fez and more, it also places Teslagrad alongside them, as one of the really phenomenal examples of the genre.

    Teslagrad is everything we love about download gaming on Wii U.

    Teslagrad may have been a long time coming on Wii U, but it was worth the wait.

    There are not too many additions compared to the original version, but it still is a great game and plays great on Wii U.

    First I feel I must set a underlying description of what mood I was in when I started to play this game. I was bored out of my mind after playing super castlevania and metro redux. What I usually do when I can't think of anything that will tickle my pickle, I resort to checking out what indies are out on the console I spend the least time with. The wiiU has giving my pleasant surprises before and snapped my boredom. It didn't let me down this time either.
    After seeing a post with the name TESLA-grad my ears turned up. I love Nicola Tesla and have been infatuated with his story both factual and unproven conspiratorial. I didn't even check a review seeing this was a brand new release.
    I was definitely not in a mood for platforming since I just finished getting through a chunk of super castlevania but that didn't even matter. This game is SO GOOD it sucked me right in. You can see I am not **** you by checking how many reviews I have written and how long they are. I am giving this the sweet time it deserves. No spoilers just a spit shine of your opinion towards this purchase.
    You know those games you put in and even when you die or get stuck your still completely in it. Your desire to succeed is never gone flaccid. The art is so cool I like taking my time section to section. I like noticing all the smaller details and the occasional artsy 'Easter egg'.
    The game play is do dope I will let u discover it without any type of description of what u do. The thing that had my loving this was the fact I had not idea how I was going to get through this game. The approach to this is best kept a surprise.
    I want to get back to it now. I wrote this while I was taking a **** YES THAT GOOD. I AM THINKING OF THE GAME WHILE I AM SQUATTING. Do yourself a favor and buy this. Puzzle platformer in a unique sexy adventure.
    Enjoy MEUS AMIGOS
