Retro arcade games are always the best, I especially don’t tolerate simple games, I prefer games that add a bit of challenge, in my opinion a game developer has wasted their time if they design a game that can easily be beaten in less than an hour. For someone who regularly games they are often much faster at beating games, perhaps it depends on the genre of gaming, I personally enjoy a good strategy or puzzle game here and there.
The story of K.O.L.M is about a robot who has lost all his pieces, the game itself reminds me very much of Upgrade Complete. In Upgrade Complete you have to build everything from the ground up, preloader, graphics etc.. However in my opinion KOLM definitely delivers in all aspects of simplicity, creativity, challenge and design, it has been a while since I have personally played a broswer game this semi-challenging.
KOLM starts off with just his robotic head, he must move forward in search for his feet but it doesn’t stop there. Throughout the game KOLM will encounter some pretty tough arcade style enemies, some of levels reminded me of the game Galaga. As I stated earlier Kolm has a very classy touch, which is probably the main reason I enjoy the game, but aside from all that it will keep you going in circles (or rather should I say squares) trying to find all the missing pieces and puzzles that make this game effortlessly challenging.
The developer has now created KOLMIAM, here is the KOLMIAM Walkthrough if you would like to take a sneak peak at the latest installment/sequel for the game. Enjoy!
K.O.L.M Guide (Part 1)
The first part is very basic, follow the white portals. The first part we encounter is our leg modules, press X to continue. KOLM will now be able to move more freely and faster. A few rooms later we will find our optics, yay! Now everything is more visible. Go to the right after collecting your vision (its the only way you can go without your springs). Now we have found our leg springs, press X to continue, use the “Z” key on your keyboard to jump, we need to backtrack. Go to the room where we found KOLMS optics, enter the higher left portal. Keep traveling to your left through the open portals. Soon you should end up in a room with a blue key, go grab it while jumping over the enemies and spikes. We can use the “X” key to blast down blue portals and enemies. Backtrack all the way to the room where we found KOLMS optics, this time enter the higher right door and follow the open portals. When you get to the tall narrow room blast down the blue portal using the X key, enter the room, you should now see an area with moving platforms and spikes, here we will find KOLMS compression unit, press the down arrow to glide back underneath narrow spaces. Return back to the room where we found KOLMS optics, this time enter the lower right door. Keep following the blue portals, blasting them with your plasma cannon, don’t forget to collect metal plates along the way. Soon you should make it to a room with a green background, enter the lower bottom portal. The next room should have water, but Kolm can’t swim yet, so enter the lower left blue portal. Upon entering the next room follow the lower left portal once again. Finally we will enter a room with spikes, avoid them by jumping in between on safe areas, in this room we will find KOLMS Dash Pads. Use the dash pads to clear large gaps, to do this hit your left or right arrow keys (depending on which direction you want to go) and press+HOLD Z as you jump.
You should enter in the room where we were just previously at, climb your way up to the higher right portal. KOLM still can’t swim, so jump from platform to platform avoiding the enemies to the upper left portal. Once we get to the other room, enter the upper right hand portal. Follow the portals until we get to a room with a row of spikes, we will clear them by using KOLMS double dash feature: tap+tap+Hold Down Z. Now we have found his waterproofing part, KOLM will now be capable of surviving in water. Head back to the level containing the water (where we previously were.) Follow the blue portals, a couple of rooms later we will find the slidepack, now we will be able to crouch and slide. Go back to the green room with the water, this time enter the lower left blue portal. Now when we enter the new room enter the lower right portal.
Use KOLMS slidepack to crouch and glide. Down arrow+Right or Left Arrow Keys. At last we should be in a strange room with clear looking blocks that fall as you step on them, just below you will find the boss robot, avoid his shots and kill him using your plasma gun to earn the jetpack (double jump). Follow the room out using the lower right portal. Collect the metal piece in the room(over to the lower right, use your slidepack) Jump on the jet-stream to reach the upper left blue portal. Keep following the portals up until you reach the long narrow black room with the jet-stream. Jump up there and allow the jet-stream to carry you upward: press Z + Hold Z (a little combo) it may take you a couple of tries in order to get high enough, climb and follow the portal out. You should enter a rather familiar room, look for the metal piece and collect it then follow the upper left portal out. You should now be in a room with water and purple portals, climb you way to the top to reach the highest right blue portal. In the next room collect the metal piece (use the slidepack to get it.) Keep following the portals until you reach the room with 3 portals (where we originally collected KOLMS optics) enter the upper right white portal. Finally we should be in a room with a purple key, use our jetpack to climb and get it, we will now be able to break down purple portals! After getting the purple key go back to the room with the moving platforms (where we found our compression unit) keep going left to get there, here we will get that metal piece. This will cover the first half of our game.
Kolm Guide (Part 2)
Return back to the room where we originally got KOLM’s optics, this time take the upper left portal, collect the metal piece if you have yet to get it. Great, keep following the portals until we get to the room with water, now go underwater and find the purple portal to the lower left and follow the purple portal through in the same direction. We have at last reached the red rooms in Kolm, keep following the purple portals in the upper left. Soon we will come to our next part called the “Hydravitor” after collecting that begin to go backwards 3 rooms, we should come back to a room with 3 portals, this time enter the lower left portal. Keep following the portals, you should reach a narrow red room with water, enter the lower right portal, keep following the portals, we should meet the second boss, now we will get the Jetpack Upgrade (triple jump) after that face the next robot, here we will get the Plasma Cannon Level 3 (ability to open yellow portals) finally beat the third robot and we will get Hypershield (Invincibility). Enemies will no longer hurt us, follow the exit out through the lower right portal. You should soon come to a room with a bunch of yellow portals guarding a piece, break it then collect the Core Damaged Facility Collapsed, you will have to exit immediately. Keep following the portals out until we get to the long black narrow room that says “escape” start climbing up that and continue to escape, congratulations you have beat the game!
Kolm is perhaps one of the most creative and ingenious strategy games to date. The game is about a little robot who has lost everything: his vision, legs and springs to jump, now it’s up to him to travel through various rooms to collect everything he has lost. The game starts off as a blur to begin with, nearly impossible to see anything, to start off you can shuffle you way around using the arrow keys, head over to the right. You can also Download KOLM for offline play or use it on your site or blog.
