“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."

Edit #1: This game is pretty hard. When I play this, I get quite frustrated, but I like a good challenge.
Some of the challenges seem impossible, but it might just be because I'm a newb.

In this game, each "level" is referred to as a trial.

Each trial has 3 achievements you can unlock:
-Completing the Level
-A unique level challenge (such as beating a level without killing monster spawn points, etc.)
-And beating the level with a speed run aspect to it (Time Trials).

When you beat a trial, you earn "crystals" which are basically level ups for your gladiator.

Crystals unlock active and passive skills to make your hero stronger.

There are 4 Heroes (weapons), you can choose from, and that you can change at any point in the game:
-Volcanic Hammer (Warrior class)
-Spirit Claws (Rogue class)
-Ice Shield (Paladin class)
-Storm Bow (Hunter class)

It plays like an arcade game, but man, it is pretty hard, and my frustration is a 9/10 most of the time. lol

The cool thing with this game, is that the puzzles and monster spawns scale with the number of players in a game.

So the more players, the harder the game is!

For completionists, the good thing is that you can compare your rankings with other players from around the globe to see how well (or poorly) you've done.

All in all, a good game, and would recommend even at full price. :)

[END OF EDIT]

~~~~~~~~~~

So far so good!

I've been eyeing this game for quite some time now, and have passed up various Steam sales, either out of forgetfulness or laziness.

66% Off, 50% Off, I finally picked this game up for $2.24 (85% Off), and the initial game play is decent so far.

Initially, the game has a Gauntlet Legends/Warcraft 3: Custom Map/Use Map Settings vibe to it.
The game plays similar to StarCraft 2 Challenges, mixed with some Gauntlet Legends-Arcade style vibe to it.

I've read the reviews prior to mine where the difficulty ramps up as the game progresses, and isn't fair towards the later stages of the game... (Dungeon Defenders suffers from that, where you HAVE to play with people)

I haven't gotten that far yet, however, when I get to that point, I'll be able to update this review and give my whole-hearted opinion of the game.

There is one thing though: the story/voice acting, albeit, is minimal thus far, is very lacking/dry. (Supposedly the game was created with a team of 7, so it's just a side thought. You aren't playing the game for voice acting, you're playing it for the fun factor!)

All in all, the Trials are challenging... it gets me frustrated trying to race the clock and I get killed in the process. lol.

I promise to update this review as I progress in the game. :)

Don't try this without friends, you'll go mad in singleplayer. Extremely difficult, we've spent over an hour on certain trials (still not done with all of them), especially difficult if you want to do the challenges. Controls work great on a controller, gameplay is overall interesting. The orb idea is a neat one, makes for fun and interesting puzzles, although you might kill your friends over it at certain times. You WILL have to go back and revisit previous levels to do the challenges, which provide the upgrade gems for abilities. I personally like this, challenges are usually fun and they really need teamwork, but I imagine it may bother some people playing the same levels over and over.

Plays best if you have friends over, you really need to communicate (yell, actually). The main reason why you really need friends for this. Everyone should have a mic and lots of patience, really difficult to have this with strangers.

Got a 4 pack in sale a while back, money well spent. We're at roughly 23 hours so far and still has a lot to offer, so I'm pretty sure you would be happy with it even at full price.

if you wanna play alone, dont buy this game because this is almost impossible to complete the game.
this is hell fun to buy with your mates or other players, team communication is very important to kill the boss or finish some hard missions.

One of the best co-op arcade puzzle games ive played.
It has challenging and entertaining puzzles and will really test your teamwork on some challenges.
Pick it up now when its 85% off, its well worth it.

Details on store page are incredibly misleading. This game is about beating short challenge levels and replaying them again and again until you beat the time limit to get more rewards. Still a promising concept but it's badly executed. It's also hard, but not in a good way. Expect getting frustrated with your co-op partner a lot over stupid levels. Gets repetitive fast. Also has a lot of problems and bugs. Do not be fooled by massive amount of positive reviews. You may still enjoy it more than I did, even love it maybe, but even then this isn't built for single player and connecting to your friend is problematic. Even playing local co-op has problems as it was really buggy to play with my Logitech F-710. So that "full controller support" on store page, is also misleading.

Also I've played this game with friends for around 5 hours. Not 1.6 hours as Steam says. So I gave it more than enough chance to be entertaining. Unlike people who say it's the best game ever but only played just enough to get all the card drops. I don't know why people do this. Even if they love the concept of the game, the game has problems. Thus it is hard to recommend.
