I definitely didn't expec much for a game based on a novel. However, for the price, it's hard to pass up since it looks pretty fun. it's nothing amazing, but it has some very creative designs that remind me a lot of the original creations. You can tell it's a love letter to T.S. Elliot. It's not the tightest controlling game, but it feels good enough. This game isn't mind-blowing but it is fun.
Ahhhh... this game! I was waiting on a decent Metroidvania to appear on steam that i hadn't played before, when i found this on sale. I didn't have high hopes, but the game surprised me by being fairly decent. First off is the presentation, graphics, sound design, etc. And it's all as it claims to be; 8-16 bit goodness. Special attention must be brought to the soundtrack in my opinion, which is quite good. The visuals are colorful and bright, and get the job done respectably well to make it seem retro and 8-bit, though some enemies have a tendency to blend into the background. As for the gameplay, it's a standard Metroidvania. You fight monsters, and get weapons and abilities to progress further. It's all there, though it can be a bit frustrating at times due to slightly awkward physics, and enemies early in the game taking a large amount of hits to kill. Overall, ignoring a few technical blunders caused by the limitations of the engine or the style, the game is quite good. I'd recommend it highly, it's quite fun.
That game has the graphics of Terraria( if not even worse), but it's an interesting action/rpg with pixel graphics (almost),where you fight your way through different levels,with different enemies and weapons which makes the game not that boring,the graphics are the only - imo,as it may not bring the best quality to the game which deserves much more attention. It looks quite promising,simple and easy. It has good art style,good storyline and music. For 4 pounds i'd insta-buy it as im fan of those kind of games.
This game has good art and music. It's not particularly outstanding, but it does well to accompany the game. Gameplay is your usual "Metroidvania" style, with multiple weapons and abilities to use as the situation calls for it, so I can't really comment on it. It's a formula tried and tested, and used multiple times. It felt very much like Simon's Quest at times, especially when time passes and it turns to night. Still it's a good game. I think a plus for me was finding out that this game was based on T.S. Eliot's poem of the same name. I'm a writing major, and so this piqued my interest. There are no regrets.
