The novelty, apart from some high-quality cinematic storytelling, is Joule's colour-coded weapon. You need to use the right colour to attack the right enemy along with some other puzzle-solving elements. As you find blueprints you can upgrade your weapons and robots.
Although the game hasn't been a huge hit, for those that enjoy exploring and collecting it really is great fun. Other similar games are rated older than Recore, so this can be a good bridging experience. It's a classic exploration game that harks back to 10 years ago. For some this is a negative but for the right aged player it's spot on.
There is a Recore Definitive Edition available that improves visuals and adds a new adventure, “Eye of Obsidian” and a new T8-NK corebot who joins Joule. If you have the original game you can download these updates for free.
Skill RatingThis game is enjoyed by 10-14 year-olds as it's a good match for their ability and maturity.
