At the end of last year, the Steam version of the action roleplaying game Torchlight from the young developer studio Runic Games was tested. Now Jowood has put a German boxed version of the now award-winning title in the shop. Reason enough to retake a look at Torchlight. The game itself has not changed. You still choose one of three characters - typically a sexy archer, a magically gifted alchemist, and/or a fat warrior. After the selection, you will land in the fantasy village Torchlight. The town attracts adventurers because the mines below it mine precious hat stones. The only problem is that the ore corrupts creatures in its vicinity. To descend into the comic-strip-like, various galleries to find out what this source of evil is all about. An epic story or great quests won't be waiting for you. When it comes to the gameplay, however, you'll notice that many of the Runic staff had previously worked for Blizzard on the Diablo series. Every second you click monsters dead, cast spells, and collect magical items. The types of enemies differ significantly from one another. From the giant spider to the speared gnome, you'll find everything. In between, the game with fat boss enemies throws harder nuts at you. In short: Torchlight is the essence of a role-playing action game. Condensed and improved for the fastest, most uncomplicated game fun possible.
