SCALE download is a first-person perspective logic game. The title is developed by CubeHeart with Steve Swink as the main designer. Previously, he was working on such productions as Tony Hawks Underground, Jetpack Brontosaurus, and Off-Road Velociraptor Safari.
In the title, you assume the role of the girl named Penny Price who is passionate about physics. She created a device that can absorb the size of one object and transfer it into another. The action kicks off when the heroine gets locked up for murdering over nine million people when she accidentally destroyed the East Coast of the United States. To make matters worse, the authorities confiscated her favourite cat and installed an intelligent coordinator in her brain, which is supposed to help with her resocialisation. However, the girl plans a breakout. Therefore, in spite of the coordinators directives, she constructs a replica of her size-manipulating device. With its help, she decides to win back her and her cats freedom.
Gameplay comes down to exploring the world and solving puzzles. In SCALE download, the player interacts with the world through the use of the mentioned device which enables shrinking and enlarging environment elements. This is not limited just to a few objects you can manipulate with the size of e.g. trees, buildings, enemies, clouds, and even levels themselves. All of this works on the principles of a dynamic physics engine that calculates the effects of your actions in real time.
SCALE download features an open world. The players have freedom of exploration and discovering secrets. Additionally, gameplay offers some arcade elements. During combat and platformer sequences, you need to display skills and have quick reflexes. In order to succeed while fighting and solving puzzles, you have to master the devices capabilities.
