Loved Armed with Wings series.
This game, in a way, reminds me of Bioshock and Skyrim.
Well not really just this game, but your Armed with Wings series.
Because all of them are easily simply massive art projects.
This new installation to your Armed with Wings series is obviously a lot shorter than previous games, involving a quick play through only lasting 20 minutes tops on normal.
The fighting system, in my own opinion, isn't as in depth and..well "hardcore" as your previous game, though it was still very much enjoyable laying out combos on enemies and decimating them with your ultimate. You've made in perfectly in your last few games that when you're fighting enemies or bosses, it's exactly like those fight scenes in different anime's, filled with eye candy and over the top stunts with abilities that make the crowd go "ooh" and "aah". Which is partially why I found the last game more enjoyable, but that could also be that it was more RPG style and that appealed to me more (though I did love the "Flash Step" ability, finally getting the hang of that was my favourite part of that game).
I really hope the Armed with Wings series continues on into a bigger franchise, possibly moving onto the Steam network of the PSN or Xbox live, I'd pay for a fully immersed game such as this. Easily.
Review thing of the game thing..
FIRST AND FOREMOST
A MESSAGE TO PEOPLE COMPLAINING ABOUT THE GAMEPLAY
I have seen many many people complaining that they have such a great computer but the game was just so graphic intensive that they could not play it. I could play it just fine, and to those haters out there on Mac's, I have one. This plays nice and smooth on a Mac, thus "obviously" it should be fine on Windows or what not. Secondly, if you haven't realised yet there IS a quality option if you right click.. Gosh some people are so inconsiderate.
NOW onto the game itself.
All in all this has been a FANTASTIC game. Honestly so far I have had no issues with it. It's been a great challenge defeating the waves and waves of enemies and siege weapons.
The ability were well and balanced, charge was a great starting ability as it completely wiped out those Breakers and the other abilities just made the game that much more enjoyable. Really I think the people that would enjoy this game the most are those who can look at the BIGGER PICTURE. If retarded people haven't read anything into this, it's just a freaking prelude, which honestly makes it all the better, to know that when Ortus does come out that we'll have so much to choose from, weapons, armour, abilities, looks. *jizz*
The graphics were fabulous, pleasing to the eye with Jouste's fantastic drawing skills and Miccool's special effects. The entire team has just been great! Of course we can't go by JAZZA here, as we see him to be much of the leader.
Guys this has been a great game, but make sure because of this game a lot of people are going to have some high expectations for Ortus, just make sure you deliver.
10/10 and 5/5 and favourite'd.
The game has very much potential, though still needs a few things and fix some bugs.
Have something more interesting going on, I mean don't get me wrong I loved the feel of it.. but like maybe something more scary? More of those Blackies dead around the place or something?
Some more challenging puzzle rooms, with machinery or Whities walking around inspecting the place for survivors.
A longer game? Maybe escaping the facility into the city, finding your family. Though I only got one ending.
A few bugs I spotted were, after I finished the game I suppose the main menu was supposed to show up? Or some writing? I couldn't actually see anything.. So I'm not sure.
Also whenever I hit a button or there was a "flash" on the screen, the game would slow right down and only things like the character, the background, and the platforms could be seen in that time.. Kind of removing the feel?
Just my review.
I am quite ensure what happened on Puzzle 14
But I was just playing around, trying to figure it out. I started moving the dark purple block and it started jumping around, moving back and fourth.. I thought it was just some lag at first, but then the light purple block did it, so I tried the Greyish Blue Green block, tried moving it down, and it jerked back and fourth like the other two, but this time it "merged" with the purple block. I took a screenshot incase you need proof or something. Though I'm sure it's a minor bug.
Nonetheless, the game is great, a fantastic brain teaser. Considering my mathematics test is coming up I wonder if these solving skills will come in handy!
I am quite excited to get to the challenging puzzles if 14 is this hard.
I encountered a big bug that froze my game entirely yet the music kept playing
I don't know what happened..
I was using Reinforcements by Daicos
And I went into a bubble, sent out my "soldiers" and was going fine, then was hit by those green sticky bubbles, and the game kinda froze, everything stopped except me. I tried to excite the bubble but then my guy froze entirely.
OTHER than that bug there this is a great game full of creativity. I love it.
Creating your own tanks is so much fun and I could keep playing this for hours on end.
This is pretty good for a simple tutorial on AS2
I mean this would help me as well I don't doubt
Some things you're missing though might be like... Don't be afraid to go into detail with tutorials,
Take the button one, all it says after the "Now you've officially created a button" Where does this button go? How to change that? Etc
In the movement section isn't speed pretty much the same as friction? You need to explain a bit more than just give us the code, as much as that does help we're not learning enough.
More examples as well in the Mini Tut's?
Don't know if this is well enough explained, it's late enough for someone that hasn't had any sleep -.-
Good work though
Your so close there man
Very Very Close
But there is some tweaking involved with the game
You know how you say that you will be severely gimped without the sound?
Well even with sound on, after a volley of arrows from behind there was no sound for any other opponent!
Other than that it's a very interesting game... quite annoying sometimes
For those who don't know
This is like a true story haha
Don't know the full details but a man burnt his house down and stole a single engine airplane and crashed it into a tac building. Just saw it on the news and was like omg that's what this games about xD
Fun for like 5 secs nonetheless
There are like a few bugs
Like while I'm writing this I'm in an infinite freefall
I got "teleported" to the top of stage and then just fell...
Lol but still an awesome game man
I've been "teleported" twice now... so like xD
This kept me entertained all morning!
GOD! I love platformers and RPGs... so together it's like zomg...
1 problem though... I got 100% completion... talked to the Boy and then it's just froze... I can't do anything :( Please fix man..
Great game nonetheless
