Skiffy Decides 2015: Price drop!

Hey everybody,

Episode 1's price has been permanently dropped down - it's now just $2.99USD (and there are equivalent price drops in other territories)!

The Hollow Wish pack (Ep1 and Ep2) has been dropped to $6.99USD as well, to ensure it's still value for money compared to buying the two separately (so that's about a 12% saving).

Episode 2's price remained unchanged at $4.99USD at this point in time (just to make sure that's clear).


Cheers!
Linds

Незатейливая аркада, в которой исследование уровней занимает значительно больше времени, нежели сражения - а уровни тут весьма немаленькие, с кучей секретов и тайников, это я как раз и люблю, чтобы было где пошариться. Героиня, помимо дистанционного махания левитирующим мечём, бега и прыжков, может цепляться практически за любую поверхность и передвигаться по ней - проползти почти весь уровень по стенам и потолку вполне реальное занятие в этой игре =).

И, да, сама героиня-кошкодевочка крайне удачно нарисована, она, ровно как и весь игровой мир, не пытается косить под анимешную стилистику - нормальный такой европейский комикс, адекватная героиня со вполне кошачьими манерами и чувством юмора =)

Здесь почти нет скоростных забегов по уровню и совсем нет трудноубиваемых боссов - это игра для отдыха, а не для превозмогания. Нет, конечно, если хотите открыть в игре всё-всё-всё, то придётся "превозмогать", но для обычного прохождения этого не потребуется.

P.S. пока прошёл только оригинальный первый эпизод
P.P.S. костюмчики героини "для красоты" присутствуют, бóльшая часть приобретается у местного ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥и, некоторые можно получить только выполнив определённые условия; апгрейды героини и новые мечи покупаются у него же, мечи по характеристикам различаются

Довольно интересный платформер с молодой и харизматичной нэко-мерсенари в главной роли.

Особенности:
*Кит Баллард (так зовут гг) умеет лазить по стенам и потолку, прям как Наклз (вселенная STH)
*Можно разблокировать клинки, различающиеся по характеристикам. А так же костюмы, прям как в симуляторе шапок (только без доната)
*Простое управление
*Тайнички для тех, кто любит обследовать каждый уголок
*Неплохой сюжет и наличие юмора

Недостатки: Единственный минус (на мой взгляд), отсутствие руссификатора. Увы, те что были, под старую версию игры...

Оценка игры:
Геймплей: 7\10; Совмещение платформера и слэшера может и не самая лучшая задумка, но в целом неплохо.
Звук: 10\10; Придраться в этом плане было не к чему, да и не особо хотелось.
Графика: 7\10; После достаточного времени проведённого в Borderlands 2, графика не кажется такой уж непривычной. Остальным же придётся привыкать.

Вердикт: 8\10 Пройден пока только первый эпизод, но уже можно делать выводы. Игра - самое то, чтобы посидеть пару вечеров и расслабиться. На вопрос стоит ли брать отвечу: Несомненно, особенно на распродаже!

It seems it's finally time. After 5 years Blade kitten has gotten it's episode 2 and conclusion. Was it worth the finish though? One way to find out, isn't there?

Blade kitten is a Platformer developed by Krome studios and released by Atari in 2010. If you're familiar with either, you'd know that Krome Studio's made a previous platformer game on the Gamecube and other consoles called "TY: The Tasmanian Tiger." which is a game that personally I've had a lot of good experiences with when I was younger. Sure, the voice acting was cheesy and some game mechanics were irritating as sin. But it was a fun game. And if you know about Atari, you know they went bankrupt some time ago, but I'll get to that later.

In Blade Kitten, you play as Kit Ballard. Essentially a catgirl with an interesting hair genetic, but realistically she is part of a rare(?) alien race called the Felion's. It looks like "Felines" but is pronounced differently, get it? Anyways, her job is to be a breaker; which is the game's essential equivalent of a Bounty hunter. Hunts targets, get paid. Usual stuff. First person she runs into is her soon to be rival but not main antagonist; Justice. Blonde woman working for an evil-ish military group known as the Sollers.

Gameplay is simple stuff. The game runs entirely on a 2.5D plane. 3D models but the game always sticks to it's camera angle; and the game's entire system runs as a platformer. Kit's attacks focus on a hovering "Breaker Blade" which can be swung at melee range, or sent out at a distance. You can hold RMB to spear people's armor or shields, or just to yank them in. There's also special attacks, like a Q to mount and throw soldiers by the head.

There are a few kinks to work out though, that's unusure if they'll ever get fixed up. First off, Episode 1 was originally designed for consoles. It shows when the "how to play" is just a bunch of symbols with no real display on what you're /supposed/ to press. The only one that does show this is the loading screens, and if you have even remotely decent of a computer it wont be around long enough to read. The Enemy AI can also be seen as unfair at times, countering hits from you are most of the basic enemies 90% of the time.

With Atari closing down in a later year and stopping development of Blade kitten Ep2, there was a pretty long hiatus. But now we have it. Episode 2 has nicer animations, a more consistent 60 FPS and a rather shiny level design! Plus, all the original characters voice actors and new content to boot. It's fun stuff, and was a nice wrap-up for the series.

Pro's
------------
+Decent Level design
+Lovely world-building
+Slipped in references of older games
+Level keeps up with you, allowing the player to go pretty damn fast at times.
+Slippery, almost wild yet usable controls.

Con's
------------
-Some enemies are downright irritating
-Climb command registration can be sometimes odd
-Some map bugs
-Enemy's can be expoited using Wild controls, making bosses rather easy.

Verdict: Buy it if it interests you. There /is/ a demo, so try that first.

Thanks for the efforts Krome Studios, I'm glad you didn't leave the game for dead.

Blade Kitten is a charming game when you first start it up. The main character, Kit Ballard, is a spunky cat-girl who happens to be a bounty hunter with a new rival in town. The look of the game is cheery and bright, and the promise of a fun rivalry-based adventure sets the scene nicely. Although they say first impressions are generally the most important, this rule doesn't really apply to Blade Kitten. The game starts strong, but fizzles quickly due to some awkward mechanics, technical issues, and a paper-thin story.
Kit Ballard, as a main character, is interesting enough, and certainly fills the cat-girl "moe" archetype satisfactorily. However, the story, which starts off strong, falls into the "chase" trope fairly quickly, and becomes no more than snippy remarks and chase scenes during cutscenes. Although the lead and her rival certainly have their personalities, they just aren't enough to keep you engaged in the story.
However, since this is a relatively cheap game, a lax story might be forgivable. What isn't, however, is bad gameplay mechanics. The game's world is futuristic, and characters seem to hover around on a lessened gravity planet, which sounds cool in theory, but in practice proves to be quite frustrating. The game's levels feature platform-based gameplay, which means precision-based running and jumping is a must. However, the low-gravity properties of the game mean that there is a lot of skidding around, and you can't stop on a dime or take off at full speed. Though this isn't much of an issue in the beginning, you'll find the sliding mechanic increasingly annoying as the game progresses and you encounter "trap" levels that require precision button pressing and obstacle avoidance.
Another aspect of the game's mechanics that gets agitating quickly is the swordplay. Blade Kitten’s weapon of choice is a big, floating sword that can attack enemies near and far with quick or ranged attacks. However, the problem with the sword is that it only works half of the time. For instance, sometimes I would target an enemy from a distance, and when my ranged attack was unleashed, the enemy would still be standing there. Even the quick attack was flawed, and hammering on the swift attack button when encountering several enemies at once never yielded the results that I hoped. The floating sword mechanic could have really been cool, but with the lack of precise targeting, the sliding controls, and the lack of consistency in battle make this weapon more of a chore to deal with rather than an exciting gameplay component.
The game's mechanics really handicap this title and cause it to fall short of its potential. And the real tragedy of this is that the level design is actually quite good. Though the game takes a traditional approach to the side-scrolling aspect, there are multiple paths you can take through each level, and there are tons of bonus areas with treasure chests to explore. However, these areas are normally hidden behind puzzles and switches, which can be difficult to hit because of the wonky controls. On more than one occasion, I passed by treasure-filled bonus areas because I simply wanted to finish the level instead of trying to suffer sliding around trying to hit switches in a precise manner.
Blade Kitten's level design is also a missed opportunity in the visual area. Though there are plenty of hidden areas and things to explore, none of it looks particularly interesting. Levels generally find a comfortable color scheme, insert a few new elements, and stretch these few elements into an overarching world. This type of visual scheme is not only boring to look at, but can also be disorienting, as backtracking to similar areas can get you seriously lost if you are trying to find a certain area that looks like another part of the stage.
The only aspect of Blade Kitten that is consistently good is the animated cutscenes. Although most of these are brief with forgettable dialogue, the cutscenes are animated in a very high-quality cel-shaded style. All the animations are fluid, and the game really hits all the right notes for the anime style they wanted. The main characters feature some fun facial expressions and lightning-fast movement. However, even the cutscenes are hampered by poor voicework, which often comes across as wooden and completely unemotional.
As far as replay value is concerned, Blade Kitten definitely doesn't have much going for it. Although the game has several unlockable items, including new weapons, costumes, and battle-enhancing consumables, the game's currency is dispersed a little too liberally, and it is very possible to unlock all of this content before you've even reached the halfway point. This might be a good thing if you are just trying to run through the game, but if you are looking for a game you can play and then explore, Blade Kitten doesn't have much for you.
Blade Kitten certainly could have been a good game. It started out promising, and I was excited to experience an old-school platforming title with fun characters that played off the anime/manga tropes we've all seen over the years. However, what I got was a game with bad mechanics, repetitive level design, and little incentive to keep playing past the first few levels. Overall 6/10.
