- - - CONCEPT - - -
(e.g. the world of the game generally / the main idea / the story: sad or happy? / the environment: light, dark, nature, urban? / Well defined Genre or total new gameplay? / New Ideas or Clichees or both? / Presentation, etc)

So this game lets experience you an adventure: Stranded on a myterious island without being able to remember anything, you're totally on your own to survive and battle your way through sappy grasslands, thunder shores, icy routes in the mountains, fire deserts as well as the dangerously hot and dry volcano lands with the ominously, red glowing ash ground. Soon there are loads of question about the own identy you want to be answered - but instead of getting answers you meet Sigils giving you quests to advance, to come closer to your target you are unsure of ...

Castaway 2 has gotten a lot new features as well as gameplay elements. It has an insane amount of items, foes, bosses, quests and craft combinations. The gameplay doesn't lose its deepness over the various dungeons, the story and main idea are really interesting, though the storytelling is getting a bit dry in the middle of the game.

However, Castaway 2 is definetly a game you have to play, especially if you're a fan of adventure games!

- - - ATMOSPHERE - - -
(e.g. Tilesets [but not mapping] / Background details & ideas / Foe Details / Movement Animations / Music / Attacking Sounds, walking sounds, etc.)

The Atmosphere is a gigantic plus of the game. The tilesets for the many, different terrains are huge but still not based on each other - you put every existing climate zone into this game, and you gave each climate zone unique flowers, trees, rocks and much more. Your love to small but fine details surprised me on and on.

However, even if I like your three soundtracks, put next time some more into your work. The dungeons are huge and consist of many stages, they all really need each one unique theme.

- - - LIVELINESS - - -
(e.g. Way of Storytelling: Comics, movie sequences, images, texts, narrations / Dialogues / Charakteristics of the Heroes / Realistic Reactions etc)

Well, with a few ideas on storytelling and many dialogues (e.g. between pet and the hero!!!), the liveliness of the story would have gotten much better!

If you divide the story of Castaway 2 in ~4 parts, it would be pretty cool if there would be for each one a comic, a video, a narration or a bigger dialogue to contribute to the story smoothly!

- - - ADVENTURE SPECIFIC - - -
(e.g. Dungeon Mapping, Item Placing / Skill & Equipement Balance / Foe & Hero Design / Puzzles etc.)

Besides that I loved nearly everything of the game anyways, the dungeons were simply awesome - each of them was so different from the others, the only thing they had in common was that they all allowed combined with the great atmosphere fun gameplay!

Another fusion with great effect was the one between mapping and the tilesets!
