    The Turing Test delivers not just a worthwhile game but an amazing story that will sit with you long after the credits.

    The Turing Test is a fantastic albeit short puzzle game which features gorgeous graphics and clever problems. You’ll not only remember the gameplay, but you’ll also remember the ending and will be talking about how shocking it was for weeks to come.

    The Turing Test joins Portal as another great puzzle game featuring an ominous A.I. entity. The puzzles will make you think, but not as much as the story’s wonderful exploration of life.

    It’s easy to say that The Turing Test gets a passing grade. Lots of thought has clearly gone into how the story plays out, while the puzzles are designed to teach the player without overtly telling you how a new gameplay mechanic works. Little details at the end of each zone and side puzzle flesh out just what’s going on, while the puzzles will test your logical thinking. It’s not without its flaws, but it’s certainly worth a look at for those wanting to scratch that First Person Puzzle itch.

    The Turing Test is delivered well, resplendent in Unreal 4, and carries a few genuinely interesting moments that make some of the more languid ’downtime’ easier to swallow. We've had moments on our commute just mulling over some of the (ridiculously!) dry jokes in the game, but we love that - they feel like the bytes of humour you’d hear a museum curator crack as they show you their favourite exhibit. A puzzler for anyone who wants an aperitif after The Witness and The Talos Principle.

    The puzzles in The Turing Test are all impressive and smartly designed. Some offer relatively simple solutions while others truly test your mental mettle.

    One of the better sci-fi puzzlers not starring GLaDOS, with plenty to keep grey matter happy. [Nov 2016, p.86]

    Loads of fun puzzle game, it is a short play and I'm not sure how much it cost. I got it free with Gold on the Xbox store.

I played through it in one day, I thought it was a great idea for a game and have been wanting to find another like it. Check it out if you like puzzle games. Expand

Sounds pretty familiar, but The Turing Test is all the better for it.

    Calling it "Portal without portals" is apt. This time, instead of a portal gun, you have a device that can extract and shoot balls of energy that activate doors, lifts, switches, and so forth. You'll have to use logic and spacial awareness to properly combine the different kinds of energy with the appropriate machinery at the appropriate times to advance. While the difficulty curve seems to spike up and down without explanation, they puzzles are generally satisfying.

    The story is a bit lightweight, and most of it is just told through dialogue between player-character Ava and AI overlord TOM. Throughout the course of the game the two debate the nature of consciousness and free will, taking the stances one would expect a human and a computer to take. TOM's performance is suitably distant, but Ava sounds like she's reading off a card. It also seems silly that TOM has to spend the beginning of the game explaining basic computer science and space travel to Ava, who is immediately established as an astronaut/engineer.

    But those are minor quibbles. It's a good game with a memorable ending, which was much better than I expected from a Portal clone.

Uma tripulação espacial desaparece na Europa, a lua de júpiter, deixando para trás uma série de testes que, teoricamente, somente humanos poderiam resolver. Por isso a IA chamada TOM, que controla a expedição, acorda Eva, que estava em repouso na estação orbital para procurar esses tripulantes. O jogo começa com puzzles bem fáceis e de rápido aprendizado e vão progredindo e revezando entre alguns bens fáceis e outros que esquentam a cuca e ao decorrer do jogo você vai descobrindo coisas interessantes sobre a IA TOM e o destino dos personagens desaparecidos e, frequentemente, você se defronta com informações nova e fica sem saber em quem mais pode confiar. o Jogo bebe bastante da fonte do jogo Portal e do filme 2001 Uma Odisseia no Espaço, e traz especulações filosóficas sobre o que é melhor para a humanidade, se a consciência emotiva humana ou a racionalidade fria das máquinas, deixando pro final uma decisão que pode salvar ou condenar toda a humanidade. 9/10 Expand

    Reminds me of Portal including the plot and puzzles. Ultimately it was a quick, easy game. It was probably 9 until the last two chapters. AtReminds me of Portal including the plot and puzzles. Ultimately it was a quick, easy game. It was probably 9 until the last two chapters. At that point it was like they ran out of ideas so they threw in some platforming stuff for no reason other than to extend the game. Given the limited controls, platforming just doesn't work well.

    The items you use to solve the puzzles were also never explained so many later puzzles relied on you knowing that you could do something with some item that wasn't obvious to begin with (or perhaps didn't work initially). The net result is that some puzzles were harder to solve simply because you didn't know you could do something with a tool in the game.

The narration was somewhat tedious at times, and the story line was absurdly predictable. The game endings were underwhelming. Basically the main focus of the game is on the puzzles going room to room. I found this game better/stronger than the developer's previous effort (Pneuma: Breath of Life). Expand

On pense évidemment à Portal, surtout le premier puisqu'il faut résoudre des **** casse-tête plus ou moins casse-couilles.

    J'avoue cependant que ma patience n'a pas supporter d'attendre plus avant le déroulement de ce "jeu", car à force d'ouvrir des portes et des portes, ça m'a donné envie de sauter par la fenêtre. Contrairement à Portal donc, on s'ennuie vite, c'est dénué d'humour et c'est loin d'être aussi créatif et récréatif que le jeu de Valve.

    Bien que pas trop vilain, Le Turing machin saccade beaucoup (on se demande bien pourquoi) et charge pendant un temps très long ses niveaux plein de portes... En outre, sa musique d'ascenseur file la migraine et le jeu est tout en anglais (vite, un Aspro). On l'aura compris, c'était l'étron indé du jour.
