–Description of the mists
God of War: Ascension
Kratos must use the mists to find new paths to his destination, by stepping in the gas, the temple around him begins to age and fall apart. The Spartan must complete many puzzles and platforming challenges with aid from the mists as they change the physical properties of walls and doors, ageing them enough to become breakable. Although the gas creates hallucinations, Kratos can still use the changed environment as if it were physical.
