It's no ain't like any other sidescrolling platformer ever.
Puzzle's very well made, some puzzle require precise timing and well executed shot, and any others have multiple solution for it.
I think this is frozenbyte most excellent game.
Easy to learn yet so hard to master. most of the puzzle needs minimum of 2 heroes to help each other, no heroes left unused. If you don't play carefully and diligent enough, you'll miss most of the exp vial/bottle, and makes your hero didn't get to expand their skill as the level continue to become harder, that's the second point of puzzle game, push ourselves to the edge of fun but entrusting us to always be patient.
don't forget you can always play local co-op with two of your friend with one control each hero by themselves.
Sound & Narrating (8/10)
you will never get bores as the old man wizard speaking, it's so calm and yet the deep voice give you chill and keep you interested at the narration (at least for me, to be sure). Thief voice actor makes you fall in love shortly, naughty voice! and that Knight, well, it always makes me laugh to hear him sayin' things.
oh, amazing sound effect btw, sure to fill up your adventure.
I'm not too whiny about graphic, but if you can have game that perfect at gameplay and graphic altogether, this game welcome you. From darkness of cave and colorful landscape of fairy mountain, it's an eye candy to everyone of you.
even with the lowest setting you still get pretty visual effect.
Overall score (8.5/10)
"Not just a game that waste your time like any other 2D(3D) sidescrolling platformer, it give you pleasant time finishing it puzzle and worth all your well spend time."
It has it flaws, no games are perfect right? Here's some list that bugging me (you can say con) :
- since the first level till the end, you just fight skeleton, ♥♥♥♥ing skeleton with upgraded armor at the last level. I mean, c'mon frozenbyte, there's like many other creatures in this fantasy world you can come up to.
- Thief (archer), is the most played character in this game, almost every single puzzle required her to grap and swing. And things going worsen when Wizard get the last skill, creating triangle that can be hooked by Thief grappling hook. and at that time it become Thief-centered-puzzle-solving.
- Level 3 fire arrow + Amulet 25% damage (for skill that use energy) is total ♥♥♥♥♥. 4 full stretched shot to big boss, 1 to full armored skeleton, sure a funstopper.
- The ending was good, but to be honest, I thought I'll be fight a massive big flying skeleton, but em-em nope at all.
summarize my review, it's a great platformer game, fill up your 15hours gameplay.
