What a lovely, beautiful game, with a unique flow, where pure movement is simply fun, with a satisfying, simple but versatile combat system, the real hero of which is the game world, which is the actual progression. But from the front:
The game... in charmingly simple but very beautiful cell shading graphic style, which it does very well, reminds of Zelda, it's about exploring a world, moving in it in a slightly isometric angle, with jumping, climbing and running, but also fighting against sporadic opponents. Action-Adventure-Jump n' run probably hits the genre mix best. The star is as called the game world, which changes and reassembles itself again and again by interaction of the player, thereby a mixture from nature and machine represents
Dadurch result new ways by the world and the progression is defined by just these new platforms, in addition, finally attainable abbreviations, whereby it gives also distributed over the whole game world fast journey pneumatic tube stations. Besides the things needed for progress, you can also find many secrets that improve your weapon, give more life and endurance energy or give you upgrade points to unlock more abilities, which are not necessary for playing through, but make it easier and the urge to discover in the game is strong anyway. Because the movement through the world is simply fun, the running, the climbing, the jumping, the discovering, the trying out of new ways. But here comes the only criticism I have seriously, the precise alignment of the jumps in 3D space is sometimes a bit difficult, the alignment of the character is not always 100% visible. Since the distances back from spawn points are always short, however, this is not very critical. Fighting against sporadically occurring enemies (which remain missing after defeating the opponent group once) is fun, the fighting system works smoothly and despite all simplicity (there is only one sword strike, a rash and an evasive role) there is a lot of variety, especially because there are different enemies that require very different tactics:Generally, one of the most beautiful game experiences of the year, because it simply develops a unique flow, not very demanding but satisfying, it is one of those games where playing is simply satisfying, which is also due to many nice details (animations, sound scenery, etc. ). ) and which is full of little kindnesses, like that the respawn animations are always a bit different
