悪夢のようなアクション作業ゲーム

このゲームは同じ面を何度も繰り返す、言わば作業ゲーの一つだがその中でも異質である
FPS視点で広大なマップの中にいるモンスターを全て倒し、かつ武器を回収するのが基本的な目標だが
1、17~19レベルは若干異なる.

他のレビュアーがこのゲームを「これは悪夢だ」と言っているが、抵抗のない人は 一瞬で悪夢に落ちるだろう

悪夢の例:
●マップがない
討伐型の作業ゲーであったとしても通常はマップに敵が表示されているが、このゲームにはマップがなく
FPS視点である為、広大なマップを迷いながら敵を討伐する事になる.
また恐ろしい事に全モンスター、マップに隠されている武器を回収して
ゴール地点に向かわなければ終わらないので、永遠と同じマップを彷徨う事になる.

●たまに敵が消える
信じられない事だが、たまに敵が地面に沈み、マップから消える場合がある.もはや正気の沙汰とは思えない
つまり埋まったモンスターを永遠と探す場合がある.
消えたモンスターを確認する手段もない上に、無駄に時間を浪費してしまう.
このゲームをやる場合はこうなる事を想定してレベルクリア直前のデータを用意しておこう.

●同じようなマップ、レベルが続く
只でさえ悪夢のようなステージだが、それが2~16まで続く.
17~19は武器が出ないので多少楽にはなるが、全モンスター討伐は変わらないので
面倒臭いのは変わらない.

●変わらないモンスター、同じような武器
まずこのSSを見て欲しい
http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=312368000
色違いはあるがこのゲームにはこの二種類しか雑魚敵は登場しない
レベル19に遂に始めてのボスが現れるが、それはラスボスである

作品中に剣、斧、弓など様々な武器が登場するが
リーチの差はあるがどの武器でも雑魚敵は6発殴る必要がある(弓は溜め時間にもよる)
つまり ダメージ量は変わらないのではっきり言ってどの武器でも構わない.
と言ってもこのゲームの6割の武器は斧である為、気づいたら斧を手に持っていると思うが…

●ノーヒントのキーアイテム
まず躓くのはレベル1だと思うが、出だしから広大なマップの中から
ノーヒントで「剣を持ってこい」はいくらなんでもやり過ぎだ.
※ちなみにレベル1はまともにやったら何時間もアイテムを探す事になるような
非常に危険なステージな為、攻略動画やガイドなしは絶対にお勧めはしない


他にも死角の屋根の後に置いてあったり、木に火を付けないと門が開かなかったりと
製作者はプレイヤーを超能力者か何かと勘違いしているのだろうか?

私は絶対にこのゲームをお勧めしないが
最後のTHE END見た後普通のゲームではありえない現象が起こる.
それは、是非自分の目で確かめて欲しい

I did not get too far with this game, it was so F-U-C-K-I-N-G horrible. First off you have to sit through 8 minutes of the credits EVERY time you start the game, no jumping right to the menu. The graphics are REALLY bad, like something a game design student might produce as a freshman. voice acting is pure amateur, the characters lips don' t even move. Mouse sensitivity is low, its like you are drunk or your connection is laggy. Controls are not customizable WASD to move and thats it. This alone is a deal killer for the Munkey.

Go ahead and buy it, see for yourself what an awful, horrible peice of crap this is.

There isn't a whole lot more that can be said about this game that hasn't already been said. It's bad. Not even fun bad, just plain old regular BAD. But let's go over it, shall we?

First, the graphics. Everyone knows this. Take one look at the screenshots, it's not too difficult to tell how utterly atrocious they are. The game's description on Steam says that the game has an old-school look to it, (or something like that, I can't be bothered to look up the exact quote) but old-school doesn't even begin to describe it. Castlevania is old-school. Zelda 64 is old-school. Doom is old-school. This game's graphics, on the other hand, just look like they were ♥♥♥♥ out by the leftovers from Morrowind, which in my admitedly unpopular opinion, has not aged well at all.

Second, let's talk about the controls. You can't keybind anything. You can make some adjustments to mouse sensitivity, and invert the mouse's Y axis, but that's it. Don't like the layout? Well, ♥♥♥♥ you. Your character's movement, too, is just weird in general. Movement is very sluggish. Everything seems a bit zoomed in, but if you zoom out, it still just feels nauseating. Combat, if you've got the patience to even get to it (I'll get back to that), is painfully bare. There's no strategy involved whatsoever. Hit your enemy, pull back, then go back in for another hit. Rinse and repeat.

Third, let's talk about the story. What's the story? A bunch of monsters and/or people in scary get-up have been ravaging the land, and got into the castle. They killed all the guards, and took all the money, taxes (yes, taxes), and swords. Also, they took this guy's sister, and you better save her, because you're in love with her. The only image we see of said woman is awkwardly animated, with flailing arms and a grand total of one facial expression. Now normally I wouldn't complain too much about the damsel in distress trope, overused though it may be, but the way this game goes about it is just stupid, to the point where I had to stop after the cutscene to finish laughing. Basic isn't even the word, bad is closer to what I'm looking for.

Okay, now here's the big one. How would you expect a fantasy hack and slash video game to open? A tutorial level? Sure. What's in the tutorial level? A few low-level baddies for you to kill, with a few different weapons to try out? Nah, that'd just be asinine. Instead, let's have the tutorial level be a stupidly complex find the key quest, in an overly large castle? Yup, that sounds good to me. Yeah, no litterally, the FIRST instructions you are given in the game are to find a bunch of keys so you can get a sword. But it's not like you just find one key and get your reward. A key opens a door, which opens a chest, which gives you some unnecessary item, which lets you get another key, which THEN lets you get the sword. And all of it is separated between different rooms in this quite large castle.


All this makes the game seem REALLY bad. It is. But the worst thing about this game, I repeat, the WORST thing about this game is nothing I have mentioned thus far. What ♥♥♥♥ed me off most about this game is that Barnabas Collins didn't even get a single appearance. Or Quentin, or Angelique. 0/10 Worst Game Ever.


No, but really, what's with the title, guys? It's not some super obscure thing, Dark Shadows was pretty dang popular back in its day. And okay, even if you didn't know about the show, how could you completely avoid the recent shipwreck of a remake Tim Burton ♥♥♥♥ out a couple years ago? That's a lawsuit waiting to happen there.

I absolutely do NOT recommend this game. Though the graphics are old school, this was and is no problem to me. But the game is NOT responsive or very slow in response to controls, if there are any. I can hardly find any key to manipulate anything and the F1 and F2 keys are absolutely not helping much.
What is even more, the entire game lacks ANY pleasure a gamer needs of this kind of game: almost NO loot, disappointing endings in which you suddenly get killed by an invisible enemy and an impossible quest at start: find a sword and some keys. After 1 hour of gameplay, I have been killed 5 times and only found 1 key, unable to defend myself and with a feeling of... disappointment.
PLEASE TAKE THIS GAME OFF YOUR LIST.
It isn't even worth giving it for free..........
