HASTE is a wonderful speed-run focused first person parkour game where speed really is of the essence. Stop moving and time moves normally, but continue running and time slows down to a bullet-time style crawl.
Due to the many hazards, you’ll die a lot in HASTE, but this just pushes you to do better next time, with it’s addictive one-more-go mentality. The areas are cleverly designed, with no immediately obvious route through them – you have to discover the best route by yourself with no hand holding. This gives you a nice sense of achievement when A) you work out the route, and B) you get there without dying.
Behaving like a polar opposite to SuperHot (another excellent game), the time-only-moves-when-you-stop gameplay of HASTE adds a real sense of urgency. Life won’t just pass you by when you stand still in HASTE, it’ll punch you in the face. It’s a tough game, but it’s addictive nature means that you’ll keep on coming back for more, getting further with each attempt, then setting your sights on that elusive leaderboard. It’s a super hard adrenaline-fuelled experience – hardcore parkour.
