Resonance's Creator review

"...the real meat of the game is the gameplay - and it's superb.
Wooden sen'sey does not try to reinvent the wheel... but rather puts its own spin on classic mechanics like double jump and trinesque grappling."

This game is insane. It's playful and funny and beautiful on one hand, but on the other one it's a hardore platformer that will cause you to lose all your hair and smash your keyboard. So why get it? It has great music and visuals. It's entertaining and funny. It is a challenge to finish it. There's a simple story with which most of us can relate ("They stole our booze!"). If you're a man (or a woman) ready for a frustrating, but rewarding gaming challenge, get it.

As good as singleplayer sidescrollers get

Beautiful design, great levels, colorful, really smooth gameplay and nice controls. I only don't like the fighting system very much, but that is no big problem, at least not for me. I enjoy every second of this game.

It's a cute little game. The controls are quite smooth (at least with controller) and it has lovely graphics and music. If you like sidescrolling platformers, you'll probably enjoy this, :)

It looks nice - and that's about as positive as I can be I'm afraid.

The default keyboard controls are hilariously bad - switching to a pad helps (and kudos for switching the tutorial on-the-fly too!) but the controls remain 'old school' in all the negative ways (slow/fiddly/imprecise)

The combat is pretty tiresome and repetitive and the platforming is really odd and very vague and imprecise.

Add that all together and you have a very pretty and VERY frustrating game which I just couldn't get along with - YMMV if you like old-school platformers where the controls are part of the difficulty!

The game starts out like a simple casual platform game, not really challenging. But further on they "introduce" instant kill elements, and enemies with a area than they can hit you can you can hit them. The bats in the cave are a real pain. There are segments were you start with a 1up, and then you know that what is going to follow will probably cost you quite a bit of retries. Not because it's really challenging, but more because it's so easy to get hit, and the controls are so sluggish and unprecise.

A pretty generic platformer. Not nearly worth the asking price but it's "alright" bundled with other games.

I was having a scroll through the least-played games on steamcharts.com basically looking for games that have zero current players but which I own. This was showing at about number 2,500 with 0 current players. So I played it.

It's...unoffensive, with an art style I'm not too keen on. A simple-enough fighting platformer with combo moves and quasi-puzzles to solve, set in a classical Japanese environment.

The hero is uninspiring and the enemies seem so far to be...blobs and blocks of stone.

I've played 2 chapters and I really don't think I'll bother with it again to be honest.

I got 3 trading cards from that so, that's some of the money back I spent on this (probably in a bundle of some sort).

3/5 stars but only play it if you're: VERY bored, it's the only game you own, or you're desperate for those cards.

A not too impressive game at all but it just accomplish very well what it proposes. A excellent platform game with excellent graphics and a very good gameplay. I didn't finished yet, but from where I can see it's a litte short game. Recommended

There's not much to say about this game: it's the quintessence of averageness. Everything has been already seen thousands of times and there's absolutely nothing that stands out. Bad music and dull character design don't help too. Not recommended at full price.

Full review: http://www.cublikefoot.com/review/wooden-sensey-game-review/

If I were to use one word to describe this game, it’d be “rage”. I spent a large amount of time replaying and replaying levels due to my constant deaths. The game is difficult, really, but it’s an amazing experience.

The game started with a very simple story. Badguy shows up, badguy steals goods, goodguy must return the goods. It’s primitive, yes, and not really unnecessary, but it lays the foundation for how the hero goes about getting the goods back. The controls are very simple, with new abilities introduced over time, allowing plenty of time to get used to each ability and its corresponding button. I never found myself mixing up the controls. You end up having access to four different attacks, each with its own advantages. Some of the major attacks have other major uses, like jumping higher, or swinging across the level.

There are a variety of enemies scattered throughout the nine levels of the game. I wasn’t sure if each dealt a different amount of damage, but later in the game, it certainly felt like I was taking more damage by the new enemies being introduced, some even killing me in a single hit. The enemies and obstacles both progressed in difficulty over the course of the game and this was a reasonable pace, up until the final level. The final level was excruciating to complete. That level contained the final boss, who I actually defeated on my second try, but the segment leading up to the final boss was just painful. I died many times in an effort to complete that level. It seemed as if they took the difficulty of the rest of the game and squared it.

Wooden Sen’SeY also featured a water level in which the protagonist traversed an underwater cave in a spherical submarine. This added a bit of variety to the gameplay, but I did not find this level as enjoyable as the normal, land-based levels. The level was a bit annoying at times too, especially near the end, when I had to find my way through a maze of wooden crates infested by enemies.

The game’s graphics were simply stunning. When placed on their highest settings, it was just.. amazing. The style chosen for the landscape, characters, and textures blended well with the platforming genre as a whole. The character models reminded me of Double Fine’s “Stacking”, but in a more “cartoon” way. The game’s music was also great, and makes me wonder if there is a soundtrack available?

Wooden Sen’SeY’s primary fault is the length of the game. It took me roughly two hours to beat. That’s nowhere near the amount that I wanted, but it was an enjoyable two hours nonetheless.

Wooden Sen’SeY also has a time attack mode, which consists of 30 small stages that truly test your platforming skills. I still find myself stuck on a single one, because I cannot pass it fast enough, but this mode does add some extra length to the game. It reminded me of Rayman’s time attack modes, on a smaller scale. These stages are surprisingly difficult, and I found myself stuck on certain stages for upwards of ten minutes. I’m still stuck on an early level, but they are fairly entertaining and I recommend playing them after beating the story mode.

Overall, Wooden Sen’SeY was an excellent experience. Fun, challenging gameplay bundled with amazing graphics. I cannot wait to see what Upper Byte Studio brings us next.

Beautiful graphics & nice music, the controls are a bit repetitive in each level, but still a good game for entertainment and relaxation.
画面和音乐都很赞,每一关的敌人和操作稍微有点重复,但是关卡设计还不错,想拿全收集估计要来回玩一阵子
总的来说很值得拿来休闲娱乐的玩一会儿的游戏,推荐
