There is a Fox in the ballroom!
Or so the whispers from the other ballroom dancers suggest. Can the Flock trap the Fox before it is too late? Or will the Fox systematically eat all the other dancers before they even realize he is in their midst?
Based on the puzzle game Fox & Geese, Fox & Flock is a dark, modernized version of Queen Victoria's favorite classic!
Storyline, local multiplayer, and single player modes supported.
This game is very simple to pick up, as it is a lot like checkers and a number of other similar board games. The art, and the sound track are nice and fit well, but the game is short, and too easy, so you don't get to enjoy them for long, you might even finish the game before you listen to all the music. But for the price, and considering that it delivers everything promised, it's not a bad purchase. I do wish it had more content though, sure maybe multiplayer is too much to ask for, but maybe at least an options menu? >.> Pros: - Easy to learn - Nice look, - Good sound track - Easy and clear moves - Available on all platforms (works fine on windows and mac, did not try Linux) - Has steam cards (yes that's important when the game is in this price range) Cons: - Too short, and lacking content, once you are done with the story, that's that, doesn't even have steam achievements - Bit easy - No Options Menu (can't adjust volume, display, any of that) For the price we paid, it's an ok game
I bought this yesterday, after discovering it the other day. The artstyle seemed cool, and for the price, why not? So, apparently, this is based on an old Norse game, dating back to 14th century, and later popularized in England. There are some variation on the basic game, although this version only has 2. Still, for someone who didn't know the game at all, it was interesting to play! The game doesn't do all that much, but that isn't really a problem, since it's a 2€ game. The graphic style is really cool, and the soundtrack, although not having much thought put into (sound design-wise), still sets a nice, classical mood to the game, fitting the story nicely. The soundtrack is simply a collection of classical songs, from Vivaldi to Dvorak, and they play sequentially. The game has Story mode and Quick Game. On the story mode, you play a few matches, each with a slightly different rule-set. It's a nicely put together tutorial, essentially. Between each match, there will be a narrated cutscene, of sorts. It's mostly a voice acted story, but it's nicely written and also fits the setting very well. The story also highlights a bit of the morbid part of the game, with some symbolism that wouldn't be obvious at first. It's nothing serious, but it certainly presents board games in a new light. The game itself is pretty easy to learn, but not something that's very exciting to play against an AI. You'll soon learn how to trick it a win fairly consistently, so the game doesn't hold for very long. Perhaps it'll give you 1-2 hours of playtime. That might sound bad, but I really enjoyed the game! I didn't know the game nor its origins, so it was cool to investigate a bit. Other than that, the game is well done, and the price fits its content. If you're at all interested, give it a go! I'd love to see more games like this: simple concept, well executed and to the point!
