A hack and slash action adventure, set in a fantasy pixel art environment. With amzing music composed by Two Feathers, plus the Online Multiplayer Co-op Adventure, this game hands down is one of my favorite pixelated dungeon crawlers to date!
There are now two campaigns that you can playthrough in this game.
Castle HammerWatch: The first and original campaign. Recommended to playthrough at least once before moving on to other campaigns
Temple of the Sun: The second campaign or Expansion campaign made by the HammerWatch developers. With lots of new mechanics compared to the first one.
There are 3 different difficalty settings.
Easy/Easier: Enemies do less damage and die easier.
Medium: Standard difficulty.
Hard: Only for very skilled players.
There are now currently 6 Very unique classes all that play an important role.
There is the Paladin, a melee fighter with good mobility and high defense.
Wizard a ranged spell caster with good area of effect damage.
Ranger a versatile fighter with long range. Recommendd for new players.
Warlock a melee spell caster who can replenish health.
Thief a high damage melee fighter with low defense.
Priest a ranged spell caster with good defense who can heal.
Like I said all these classes play an important role when playing multiplayer and is recommended not to have more than one of each class, one is enough.
My take on the game:
I play Paladin 95% of the time and I am at the best of my game when I play as him, He is a good class to have on your team of adventures. His shield can block projectiles which can be very helpful for your teamates who don't have a shield. As the name says, the Paladin does have a healing ability, some may say that his healing ability is better than the Priest's, but that is another arguement for another day. In general the Paladin is a "Hero" among the other characters and I reccommend that you always have at least one Paladin on your team. But, this is coming from some who almost always play Paladin and this is just my opinion, but remember it's your choice whether or not to have one.
In my opinion I recommend this game to anyone who loves hack and slash action adventure games. It's an amzing game well done. And before you could argue that the price was not worth it because there was only 1 campaign but now there are two to playthrough. If you buy this game, I guarantee you will have a fun time playing it. It's one of the best hack and slash adventure games of all time in my opinion. ;)
