“Forced is one of the best co-op games around”
See – http://www.gamefront.com/indie-gems-forced-collaborates-in-the-arena

“Teamwork unlike almost any game I've played before”

“It is these strategy elements, whether mental or physical, and the degree of communication and coordination required to achieve them where FORCED truly shines as a co-op game.”

ゲームについて

Forced is a one- to four-player co-op arcade action RPG with puzzle and tactical elements. You are cast as slaves in the toughest fantasy gladiator school of them all, condemned to fight to the death, all the while attempting to win your freedom. You will face deadly trials and huge creatures, but Balfus, your Spirit Mentor will guide you in your quest to break the chains of oppression.

Features

  • 1-4 player campaign, carefully balanced for the number of players
  • Local and online co-op, it's easy to plugin controllers and play on one computer
  • A challenging Gladiator campaign with monstrous foes and tricky puzzles
  • Four Unique Character Classes, with very distinctive playstyles
  • Skill focused: all enemy attacks can be evaded, it's your job to figure out how!
  • The Spirit Mentor, an extra party member which players must control together to gain an upper hand over the enemy
  • Survival Arena Mode (more modes coming)
  • Mark Combat System. Apply marks to enemies with your basic attacks, to set them up for devastating special attacks from you or your allies.

History

BetaDwarf - the team behind FORCED spent 3 years developing it while living together. It all started by illegally moving into a classroom at a university - see: The Story (it has awesome pictures)

まず始めに、トレイラーを見てハクスラをイメージして買ってはいけません。
ハクスラを期待した人は回れ右をして別のゲームを買いましょう。

このゲームはアリーナ形式のアクションパズルゲームです。
4種類の武器が使用でき、アリーナに入る前に武器と使用スキルを選択します。
キャラクターにレベルは存在しますがレベリングの概念はありません。
ゲームを進めると徐々に新しいスキルが使用可能になるという形です。

このゲームの最大の特徴ですが、それはスペースバーを押すことによって
謎のボールをコントロールし、各アリーナの目的を達成することがメインのゲーム性です。
むしろ戦闘はこのボールを使った目的達成のために生き残るための手段であり
それ以上でもそれ以下でもありません

モンスターはそれを阻害するための邪魔者という扱いであり、
いくらモンスターを倒してもお金や経験値が貰えるわけではありません。

そう、このゲームはハクスラの皮を被ったアクションパズルゲームなのです。
トレイラーを見てもゲームプレイを見ても、一見モンスターを気持ちよく
倒し続けて強力な武器やスキルを手に入れ強くなるゲームと思いがちですが、
このゲームにそういった要素は一切ありません

自キャラの攻撃やスキルで敵を倒すことそのものは割と爽快ではありますが、
プレイして10分後にはキルそのものに何の価値もない事に気づきます。
そこで爽快アクションゲームを期待したプレイヤーは
がっくり肩を落とすことになるはずです。

ところで前述の謎の玉ですが、これを使った謎解きやパズル自体が
それほど面白いものではなく、逆に正しいメソッドで手順を進めているのに
中々慣れるまで上手くいかないのですが、これはトライ&エラーで乗り切るという
古典的なレトロゲーの手法となっています。
あるオブジェクトに玉を誘導してファイアボールに姿を変えさせ、その玉を
壁やモンスターに衝突させないように誘導しながら指定された箇所に衝突させる、
途中でその作業に失敗してしまうと初めからやり直しという流れが殆どです。

一方戦闘面ではクリック連打で殴り続ければ乗りきれるわけではなく、
敵を殴ってコンボを溜めてから強力なスキルで止めを刺すといった
所謂クリックゲーとならない工夫が見られます。
しかし戦闘の爽快感は今ひとつな気がします。
戦闘していると言うよりも寧ろ疎らに出現するお邪魔虫を
仕方なく掃除するといった感じになりがちです。
初めの数十分はその戦闘部分もそれなりに面白いのですが。

Co-opを期待している人に注意ですが、私が購入した時点では
Co-opのマッチングが機能していませんでした。Co-opでプレイ可能であれば
協力プレイによって様々な戦略が望めるだけに非常に残念でした。

最後にこのゲームの最大の欠点ですが、前述のようにこのゲームは
アクションパズルであるはずなのですが、そのパズル部分が全く面白く無い点です。
殆どのマップがトライ&エラーを繰り返して乗り切るタイプとなっており、
実際に頭を使う部分は殆ど無いのです。

解法は間違いなく正しい筈なのにちょっとした操作ミスで同じ作業を
延々と一から繰り返し続け、その結果プレイヤーのワンミスによって
只の邪魔者であるモンスターに倒されればそれまでの苦労は水の泡のため
このステージをクリアしたいから上達してやろうと思う前に
Alt + F4に手が伸びてしまうでしょう。

それはスーパーミートボーイの様な小気味よいトライ&エラーの連続ではなく、
ワンミスによって数分ないし10分程度の苦労を全て水の泡にさせ、
はい一から全部やり直してねとプレイヤーを断罪するようなものであり、
上達が必要であるとプレイヤーに感じさせるというよりも寧ろ
「あーもうだるいから止めよう」と思わせる類の倦怠感を強く感じました。

恐らく気の知れた知り合いとCo-opをプレイすれば評価は高くなるでしょうが
それはどのようなCo-opゲームでも同じだと思います。

レトロゲーム、それこそファミコン世代のプレイヤーは気に入る可能性はありますが
現時点では広く多くの人に受け入れられるゲームではないと思います。
気に入る人が遊べばハマる可能性は捨て切れませんが。

地味だけどなかなかcoop向きのゲームだと思う。
地味だけどスキル面白いし、
パズルもN個スイッチ押せとかじゃなく正攻法わからないくらいには難しい地味だけど。
祭壇起動するタイミングとか考えないといけないのも地味だけど深い。
具体的にはwispをスイーっと引っ張るのが地味

Forced is a co-op tactical arena game. It can be compared to games like Diablo, but it's not another Diablo clone - there's no loot in this game and its more co-op than any Diablo-like games I played.

In this game you play as slave gladiator who is forced to fight to amuse god-like creatures. Thus this game is based around Trials - rather small arena-like challenges. They can vary from "kill everyone" kind of thing to puzzles, mazes and boss battles.

You have 4 classes(or to be more precise - 4 weapons) - Volcanic Hammer(AoE melee damage), Frost Shield(Tank), Spirit Blades(Single target melee damage), Storm Bow(Ranged damage) (Each of them have skills to heal each other). In each trial you can get a maximum of 3 crystals (1 for the completion of the trial, 1 for challenge(these will vary from trial to trial) and 1 for time attack). These crystals will unlock new skills(you have a total of 8 active and 8 passive skills for each weapon with only 6 slots(3 for active and 3 for passive)). Also note that your progress is shared among all weapons, so you will get all skills for all weapons simultaneously,

Another thing is Spirit Mentor(named Balfus) who is one of the key features of the game. Balfus is your way of interacting with environment and is vital to every trial. To spice things up, you can't just order him to go somewhere. Instead, you can only call him on your current position, which makes everything a bit harder.

And about the difficulty - this game is hard. Like, really hard. Not once have I found myself stuck and not once did I go back to gather some more crystals.

As a closing note - this game is heavily co-op oriented and I don't know how good it plays in single player. So it will be better if you have some friends to play with.

As a downside of this game I can say about quite unstable net code, but devs are constantly working on it.

A bit about the game and developers.
FORCED has been developed and published by a small group of Danish developers, called BetaDwarf Studio. They actually had a pretty funny story while making this game. In fact, it was so funny that they even made a picture about it which you can see here.

So, FORCED is a Co-Op adventure game with a lot of puzzle elements. The game does future single player, but I do not recommend that.. More about that in the Gameplay section of the review! They also plan to bring this game to Wii-U!

About Gameplay.
As I said above, Forced is a game that allows both single player and co-op. At begining I was playing this game single player. My steam friend list has a couple of people who own this game, but nobody played at the time when I did. So anyway, In single player the game is quite fun! The story is very good too. It wasn't so hard, and I really enjoyed it. But then, couple of missions later... It became quite hard! So, I got into the game once at the same time as my friend FaithNoMore did. We decided to try the game out in Co-op..

It was amazing! The game became much easier but it kept being harder and harder as we progressed through the challenges. In most of the cases one of us was always the last-man-standing, running around the enemies, doing his best to stay alive long enough for the other person to revive. We also found out that this game is actually meant to be played in four people! After a while, our obstacles became quite hard. So hard that one of us had to keep sacrificing just so we could complete a mission. If there were four of us, it would be piece of cake!

The game has four different classes, a rogue, archer, tank and a "area of damage" damage dealer. Each of them has their own element. Rogue uses poison and has teleportation skills and skills that get him out of combat quite fast. He's the best class to take creatures down one by one. Archer uses lightning element with which he deals nice damage to couple of creatures at the same time. His arrows also always push enemies back, so he doesn't have too big problem with staying alive. Tank uses ice element to make ice crystal around him which then pushes enemies back, and so on and on. Needless to say he's got the biggest hp. He also has a weapon (shield) which can be thrown away to enemies. Now, the AoE damage dealer uses fire element to deal very big damage to multiple creatures at the same time. Sounds overpowered, right? Well, he does deal big damage, but he swings very slowly. He can also crush a meteorite down onto the enemies.

This game also has a lot of different creatures that you have to fight against to win. All of them have their own strength and weaknesses. Some spit on you from far, some charge you with their massive cleaves. And once again, you need a full group of four to make a great tactic on how to win against the creatures.

Graphic and Audio
Graphically speaking the game looks very good! The game itself looks a bit cartoonish. The skill effects look quite nice. For an Indie company they really put their backs into it! Voice acting in the game is very good too!

Pros, cons and final grade.
Pros:
- Very cheap!
- Extremely fun!
- Supports four players at the same time!
- Full of puzzles!
- It's an extremely fun, cheap coop puzzle based indie game!

Cons:
- Almost unplayable in single player.

Final grade: 9/10 !

Extra info: If you're into puzzles and you're searching for something to play with your friends, this game is for you! Don't look anywhere further, just buy this game and play it. It's amazing!

Great Game. One of the best couch co-op game I've ever played. It reminds me a good deal of doing well designed WoW raids without the time commitment and loot grind. Which for me is a great thing. It allows you do test reaction time and forces you to map out plans if you want to be truly successful. Communication between all playing is required and fun. I can not speak for solo play or playing with random people through online play. I've always played with people I know and had a blast each time.
