Qomp 2 on PC / Steam – The DVDfever Review

Qomp 2 Qomp 2 is the sequel to a game I never played, but comes across rather like an evolution of Pong, as if the ball had escaped its environment, leaving you to take it on its journey, throughout a series of caverns full of all sorts of hazards.

Quite frankly, it’s better to just recommend you watch a video to try and explain it further, since that’s how you’ll get how it works.

Sometimes the levels seem impossibe, and that you’ll never get thorugh them. You will if you persist, but they are fiendishly-designed.

Controls-wise, these are few, i.e. just two. You’re only given the option to change your ball’s direction within a 90-degree angle, going back and forth and letting the walls do the rest when they bounce you on the return journey, but there are even areas where you can’t control it, making it very difficult – and in one level in the second section, I was struggling to get a bonus ‘light’ token.

At the time of writing this review, I’m at the end of Chapter 2, and my nerves are absolutely shot! However, the ‘Warlords’-style segment of Level 8 in that Chapter is very cool 🙂

I have seen someone make a complete walkthrough of this game, and how they have any nerves left, I don’t know.

In my gameplay, I’ve not always picked up the ‘light’ token, sometimes because I’ve just missed it while trying to get through the level. Some are in incredibly dangerous places within them, so kudos to anyone who gets through with ALL of them. It’s a bit like getting every last pickup in Tomb Raider 1-3 Remastered. Yes, you can do it, but how many hours of your life are you going to devote yourself to it? And games are meant to be fun, not a chore.

Overall, Qomp 2 is great fun, but very challenging. Watch a few of my videos to see why.

Thanks to our friends at Atari for the review code for this game.

Qomp 2 is out now on PC/Steam, and the respective online stores for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Epic Games, Atari VCS and Nintendo Switch.
