Good work!! but... it's really hard... i men... geez... good try... but sorry: 7/ 10 3/5 :(
Great but insanly hard
Its a great game,like the graphics and the storyline and stuff. just wow.i had to focus none stop. but of course thats the point. and i started to get the hang of it. but i simply cant do it XD. 8 out of 10.
yes it kinda hard until you get the controls. but i like the graphics. there blood and bouncing goodies what else can a guy ask for lol.
Very enjoyable but plagued by a few issues.
I really liked this game, I managed to get to the final level before giving up. I think this would be a perfect game if you ironed out a few of these issues.
-The farmers are incredibly hard to kill for some reason, sometimes my javelin would go right through them. They also hit a fair distance in front of them, and there is no way to hit them once they get too close which is a big problem (with duelists for instance, even if their spear was right at me, pressing the shield would still block instantly) when they are placed directly after a jump or other obstacle.
-The voices are very well done, and it helps that you can differentiate what person is coming up by what they say but I often reacted wrong because all of the voices sound almost identical, especially if I had just cleared 3 Hoplites and a farmer or duelist at the end.
-Finally, the reason I quit was the chaser guys. I think they add way too much difficulty to the game since it is hard enough when moving at regular speed. If they were a standalone obstacle and you didn't have to deal with all the other stuff while escaping them it wouldn't be so bad. I often found myself trying to get away from one when a farmer would pop up and there is no way you can hit him with the javelin's finicky range.
Those are my 3 beefs. It was still very enjoyable. The graphics and music are top notch, even though most people seem to be saying that the obstacles were hard to see, I never had much of a problem with them. The semi-random generation of levels kept me on my toes and the feeling of clearing a level was great. It just devolved into a luck based clusterfuck in the last level.
For those having issues with obstacles: Try to jump so you land right behind a ground obstacle, you have more time to react to whatever is coming.
-You duck longer when you hold the button, tap it for branches, hold it longer for other things.
-Wait till you just see the arrows on the screen before reacting to them.
-To hit farmers you need to press the space bar roughly when he has just come on the screen, you can hit him when closer but it seems to backfire more often.
not that's a real challange!! heeling all my four thums for great job!
