One Hand Clapping is a wonderful idea designed in an expert in a small 2D platform game. This requires not only a good timing and platform skills, but also uses our voice to illuminate paths, remove obstacles and help your character in all possible ways to bring them where they should be.
Do not let yourself be discouraged by having to sing, because One Hand Clapping does not care to know if you are the next American Idol or if you are only sounding in the shower — the only thing they are looking for is whether you have a voice, and if you are ready to use it. It’s fun and can sail the family and friends nearby, but it’s worth trying if you have a microphone nearby.
There is not much history to follow, the game is focused on experience and provides beautifully designed environments and platforms. By using your voice, you can drive your character where he has to go. There are some simple puzzles to solve to find the right path, and they are mostly intuitive and intelligently arranged. In addition to this, the visuals are net and net, the colors appropriately defining the atmosphere of each scene, which makes the dark backgrounds super strange but the warm, warm and full of hope backgrounds.
Although riddles are not difficult to solve, understand what needs to be done and the timer is another. Sometimes it sounds extremely easy and solving the current environment can be obvious, but it’s not just a puzzle game after all. Coupled with the platform and the requirement to schedule not only your movement, but also when using your voice, this adds another level of welcome complexity. It does not hurt to keep a glass of water nearby, because there is no guarantee that you will perfectly timer your movements and your voice from the first trials. It’s very fun to try your different heights and test your abilities to hit the right note, and talk as a non-singer is usually easy to grasp.
The concept is new and creative, forcing players to connect a microphone to the console because your voice is the tool you will use the most. This means that this requires additional equipment to play because I tried to play without my headphones, and it would not allow it. It also means that because your voice is an integral part of the game, you will have to speak or sing for long periods. Some scenes may require that you continue to sing something, and others may require you to hum and maintain your current rating. Fortunately, no musical talent is required to finish the game successfully, however, it makes the bus routes difficult when you want to play when you return.
Although additional equipment is needed to play game, the microphone you are using does not need to be of very high quality. I just used my old helmet that dragged, and I was able to cross the obstacles easily with. You can adjust the sensitivity of your microphone where the game can capture even the weakest sounds. It’s not very good to capture whispers, so make sure you do not play in the middle of the night while your family sleeps.
Although singing skills are not required, it is useful to differentiate the most acute notes of the most serious notes. There will be times when some platforms will go up and down depending on the height of your voice. You do not need to know what note hitting, but you just need to know if you hit a note high enough or low to keep your character moving. It’s actually very simple, and the game is very indulgent for your mistakes. In fact, it encourages you to try things before going ahead because you can always go back by also adjusting your voice.
Of course, the goal is to have a good time trying something new. One Hand Clapping is fun for singers and non-singers, so I’m sure everyone will appreciate this creative experience. You can use it as an excuse to warm up your voice if you go out for Christmas carols, or you can simply sing yourself while progressing in a video game. And who knows, maybe you will discover that you really have talent to sing.
