“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.”

Om detta spel

"FORCED är ett en- till fyrapersons kooperativt arkad-action-RPG med pussel- och taktikelement. Du spelar som slav i den hårdaste fantasy-gladiatorskolan av dem alla, dömd att kämpa som gladiator och eventuellt vinna din frihet. Du kommer att möta dödliga prövningar och enorma monster, men Balfus, din andevägledare, kommer att vara din ledsagare under ditt sökande efter erkännande.

Egenskaper

  • Gladiatorkampanj med 25 arenor och 5 bossar
  • Fyra unika karaktärsklasser med 16 upplåsbara förmågor vardera
  • Skicklighetsbaserat spel där alla fienders attacker kan undvikas; det är upp till dig att lista ut hur!
  • Andevägledaren, en extra gruppmedlem som spelarna måste hjälpas åt att kontrollera för att få ett övertag mot fienderna
  • Survival Arena-läge (fler spellägen kommer)
  • Märknings-stridssystem: Applicera Märken på fiender med vanliga attacker för att göra dem mer mottagliga för vansinnigt kraftfulla specialattacker från antingen dig eller dina allierade

Bakgrund

FORCED började som ett studentprojekt på ett universitet i Köpenhamn. Det designades med kooperativt spelande i åtanke från allra första början, och spelet innehåller flera nyskapande egenskaper som uppmuntrar och framtvingar samarbete mellan spelarna; själviska spelare lämnas blödande på arenans sandgolv."

Forced is absolutely brutal, requiring constant team communication, clever problem solving and the mastery of combat skills. It can be an incredible amount of fun and is highly recommended for any group of gamer friends.This game pleasantly surprised me: simple in concept, but with an incredible amount of depth to it.I can’t stress enough how much fun Forced is when you’ve got even just one other player. It’s a smartly designed cooperative action game with a great variety in its challenges, and a great combat system that encourages teamwork over all else.Forced is an honest cooperative RPG with some good ideas suitable for 3 or 4 players but a hard nut to crack for lone wolves.Playing solo is oftentimes more frustrating than fun.However if you’re itching for a hardcore co-op action experience, then you’ve struck gold with Forced.

Incredibly solid game. Well designed, good level selection, and an impressive balance between puzzles and combat. Co-op is wonderful, and the leveling stays constant between allies and weapon choices, so you never feel like you have a hard upgrade choice thats permanent.Definitely recomend it, but dont play it singleplayer.

Do NOT buy this game if you plan to play single player. It's miserable.

That said, I absolutely recommend this game for co-op with 3 or 4 players. This game is a very tough gauntlet-style game, with puzzley elements frequently thrown in. Yes, you are smacking monsters and trying to stay alive, while doing puzzles at the same time. It's freaking hard.

But, it is very satisfying to complete the levels.

The only downside is that the netcode still isn't rock solid. For whatever reason, I have a 20%ish game freeze rate when trying to start a group game, requiring me to totally shut down the game and restart. Other than that, it seems ok.

If you are looking for a couch coop game, this one is the best or one of the best.
Levels include increasingly challenging puzzle and hack n slash level. Some levels are almost purely slow puzzly levels, some are fast paced fighting levels and rest are some combination of those two.
Game mechanics are simple and are introduced sufficiently smoothly so you don't feel overwhelmed. Later on these mechanics are combined in various ways and the game never feels boring.

Biggest con for this game would be that its not a single-player game. You can play it alone but its not even half the fun.

So if you are looking for a coop game to have fun with your friends this game is for you.

Incredible game. Hits the right balance between "these developers are evil!" and "holy crap I just pulled that off!". The four classes are well varied and the skill trees are very interesting. Toying with characters builds is quite fun. The story is simple but the early twist plus good characters and good voice actors make it engaging. Coop (and local coop!) makes this a great party game too. All that together and the result is a game I haven't been able to put down. I think about it when not playing and push for the "ok just one more unlock" when I am playing.

Simply the best 'Diablo 3' style local arena game I've ever played.
The more local players you have with xbox controllers connected the better your experience will be but this can still be enjoyed by yourself.

The story is well done, the gameplay never gets boring and is fair, the enemies are challenging but too much and the traps and obstacles are intense and will make you think.

Just a really top game I would recommend this to anyone looking for a game that won’t disappoint!

I strongly recommend this game if you're looking for an awesome (local) coop game, that you can spends entire nights with 1-3 friends and some beer on. The levels are challenging, but never unfair and completing a challenge is extremely rewarding.

I've played it with 3 different groups of friends so far and always had lots of fun. Even if you know the levels, your friends will still suggest different ways of solving the puzzles sometimes which makes the leves never become boring.

This game is AMAZING.

Play it co-op with 2-4 people and it's endlessly fun. I haven't been as addicted to a non MOBA since Starcraft 2!

I played this game co-op with a friend. I have not tried single player. That said, the game was quite fun with one other person and requires a signifcant amount of teamwork to complete challenges and to fight bosses.

FORCED is an interesting take on the action rpg genre. Instead of running around solely fighting hordes of monsters, you have arenas that you must enter and complete challenges. You also have an NPC that you must guide around who is an integral part of completing these challenges, which usually involves calling him to particular locations, causing him to move over shrines or other objectives to complete objectives while monsters are there to get in the way and make things more difficult. I wouldn't go so far as to call these challenges puzzles, as it is usually pretty obvious what needs to be done and is more a matter of execution.

There are a panoply of abilities you can unlock to help you destroy monsters. They are unlocked by completing arenas, completing them quickly, and by doing special objectives in them. There are four classes and you are not tied to a particular one. You can change your class any time you are not in an arena and you will have the same tier of abilities unlocked on each character, so you don't have to level each one or anything like that.

The boss arenas are fun and each one has their own interesting set of mechanics. A few of the arenas and one of the boss fights in particular (the skeleton, for reference) are quite difficult, but that just makes beating them all the more satisfying.

So all in all, a fun game to play co-op. I'm not sure about the single player aspect of the game. Having had a multiplayer play through, I have no interest in going through a second run solo.

the game 'Forced' is a very well playaible game.

the art of this game is stuning
When I first played this game I didn't know what to think of it.
But when I started playing more I fell in love with the stuning game art, It looks great!
I like the nature overgrown in this game it really makes the arena's intresting to enter.

Nice combat system
I also like to way your character fights in this game, you can just slash your opponents with your sword or shoot them trough the head with your mighty bow, but you may also use some neat skills you gain when you set down your roots to victory! these skills are very nice it's not just a button you press so your character slashes more differently than normal, the animations of these skills are just lovely I really like it when you teleport with your green assassin your character fades for a second cause he is to fast for tracking him, the game desingers really had there minds at this game they didn't just made a new game that looks like all those others it is a little bit different than a normal RPG game, I really like the arena's in this game.

I would recoment this to you if you like gladiators or rpg games.
you need to try out this game, it is in the sale now so be quick -75% that is a very very very good deal if you ask me!

go ahead and try it out yourself!

I will rate this game a great 4 out of 5!

Exellent local CO-OP game ever!
Play like Impossible Bosses but with some sub-boss to fight first before fighting the big boss!
The combination of characters gives you ability to win the game easier and funnier. You and your friends may need more communication during the game to solve some simple logic tasks!

Forced is a multiplayer heavy game. i really dont recommend playing alone, as it is not as much fun and also some of the challanges are very hard or even impossible without other people helping you control the orb/ fight the mobs.
it would also be pretty cool to see each class have their own "combo" with each other that can change your playstyle if you change class instead of just holding the attack button and use your skill when enemies are fully marked (marks is a system where if you hit the enemies they will get mark, more marks=more damage to skills)

gameplay is basically a multiplayer coop puzzle action rpg game, where gems act as "levels" , more gems you have means more skills/shortcuts are unlocked for your character. i dont really like the only 3 shortcuts at max, but maybe this is so the game wouldnt be too easy, as the skills dont have that long cool down.

my favourite part is probably the bossest. each have their own way to kill and each works differently, you may need to swap a few classes to see which is most efficient for which boss.

graphics are pretty good, not in a high res way, but it looks pretty unique in the enemy/your character design, though i wish there is more customization done for your character other than picking out which skill to use.

fun game, even more with friends. get it if you have friends to play, if not then they do have lobbies for that but it seems like the servers have wobbly connectiong or net code because it connects whenever it feels like, only when its a private game your friend or you make will work. at least, thats what happened to me. this will probably get fixed soon.

Absolutely Positive, regardless few minor bugs (but since it's an indie game, i guess its fine). The boss fights remind me of WoW raid boss(which is fun and chanllage), and this game is not time consuming at all. (due to the fact that it is not a grinding game)

Buy a 4-pack for you and your gaming friends (friends who had experience on video games, since this is not an easy game), you will have a wonderful 20-30ish hours gaming experience!

IMPORTANT NOTICE: This is not really an RPG game in most of its sense; there is no actual character sheet, and when your character evolves, whatever choice you make in that regard can be undone freely. Changing your build is literally like changing clothes. There is no looting or potions. There is no choice of gear other than the 4 basic sets, which are also your "class", and once again, you can freely swap. This is nothing like Diablo (in this sense) unlike other reviewers insist to claim. Bear that in mind.

Devilishly challenging yet fair, this here is a masterpiece.

You are simply FORCED to undergo challenges in a twisted sort of arena. Endlessly spawning monsters chasing you while you try to solve a maze, or while you run away from a deadly red myst, or perhaps while you try to take cover from a laser beams (lol what?! its magic!)... figuring out how to solve each area is one thing, solving it is ANOTHER THING!

Completion of each area is required to access its respective boss, and each completion awards you with one crystal - literally one "experience point" - that unlock skills. Optionally you can solve an area while doing a special challenge (depends on the area) or while time-attacking, each of which award you another crystal. Whereas you might think "Nah, I'm not an achievement hunter, I just wanna finish the game" you might be FORCED (unexpected pun) to change your mind there as sometimes the higher level skills give you a crucial advantage when fighting the boss.

There is no difficulty tweak, you cannot switch to "easy mode". Definitely not for people who get frustrated easily.

For those who like games with good graphics i dont recommend u playing this game :)


Story : 7/10
Basicly the players are cast as slaves who are forced to fight in a fantasy gladiator arena.
The slaves are from a village where people are bred solely to be gladiators and fight for the pleasure of demon types to win their freedom.
The players have the help of Balfus( this guy has a ♥♥♥♥ty voice actor btw) , a Spirit Mentor, and need to overcome the challenges and defeat the guardians of each arena.


Graphics : 5/10

As i mentioned eariler the graphics r really bad but that doesnt change the fact the game is fun to play !

Gameplay : 9/10

Though i havent completed the whole game yet i really enjoyed sloving the puzzles n doing the challenges
There are 4 weapons to choose , each one represnts a class and each class has 8 different abilittes( and 8 passives)

Voice acting: 6/10

cant really tell why they made that ♥♥♥♥ty guy voice act balfus +_+" im just disappointed ,,


Music: 9/10
Good music = Good game for meh :P



overall 8/10
