Second Scholar (Complete) – A Grid-Based Puzzle Game Where You Control Time

Game Review

Second Scholar is a grid-based puzzle game with some strange gameplay elements to it.

You play on a small grid and you have two dimensions- time and movement. When you move up and right, time progresses. When you move down and left, time reverses. You’re in control a spirit which is on a quest to help an Emperor. You need to complete a series of grid puzzles in order to do so.

The game’s two factors are time and movement, both of which affect how successfully you’ll be. If you move your character in a given direction, it’ll force time to move forward or back. When time forwards, objects will play out normally to match the flow of time.

When you reverse time, objects will revert to their natural positions. You want to make the right moves in order to solve the puzzle. It’s an interesting take and apparently, after doing some research they’re called “Sokoban” puzzles.

The graphics are nice and colorful and the game is pretty intense. It feels like a relaxing puzzler, but you get pretty annoyed and pissed off at a few parts if you’re not good with puzzle game or have no patience. You’ll have to not only deal with the movement of time, but also levers, portals, and moveable objects all over the grid.

If you like puzzle or Sokoban-style games, try out Second Scholar.
