The premise of Refunct is deceptively simple. You simply have to travel onto every platform in the world. This involves the player having to traverse across a variety of different obstacles to reach these platforms. In essence, it is a freerunning experience that tests your ability to learn and experiment as you play along, climbing walls and leaping over gaps.
Mirror’s Edge was something of a strange and unexpected game when it initially released in 2008. DICE had only been known for the Battlefield franchise before this and a move to a first-person platformer that focused almost exclusively on parkour might not have seemed like a wise decision. Yet, the game went on to receive plenty of acclaim from reviewers for its distinctive gameplay but also garnered criticism for a lackluster plot and short length. Despite all of this though, it had a dedicated cult following of fans who wanted to see a sequel, though EA seemed hesitant to move forward with any new entry into the series – that is until now with the release of Mirror’s Edge Catalyst.
