Costume quest is finally back. It surprised me, i was not expecting Costume quest 2. I loved the first game and i instantly fell in love with this one. Again you play as the very cute little kids (i know it sounds creepy coming from a grown man) and running in halloween costumes fighting giant angry moles and snails.
The game didn‘t change much. The core is the same. Simple rpg mechanics, collecting candies, leveling up, collecting new costumes to become a three-headed hotdog.
The combat system changed a little, you now need to press a button when attacking to do more damage and same goes for defending – press the button in time to receive less damage. And there‘s fountains where you can restore your health after the fights. I heard people complaining about it, but i don‘t see the problem here, fountains are always close to you, it‘s easy to go and refill you hp. Other than that the game is same as the previous one – great. Yes it‘s very short, but i don‘t know if i would want to play it for 30 hours.
Double fine has done a fine job here. Costume quest 3 next halloween maybe?
