I suggest that players should vs the Final Boss on hard mode (this is the REAL boss battle).

Provoked by his King into a fit of rage; the fallen Hero of the Earth, now at his lowest point. Driven by the desire to culminate, he embarks on his last journey to fulfill his destiny as he perceives it. You (the player) must guide him to his destiny.

Storm your way through 15 levels and lay waste to countless different enemies. Complete with multiple difficulties and packed with 20 achievements, Culmination is a wildly chaotic action / platform game focused on delivering a unique and grand experience.

Players with little time can get a full taste of Culmination thanks to the unique 'automatic leveling system'.

Players looking for deep experiences will find Culmination to have a well though combat system, rich with complex mechanics.

So...

First off, the good parts. The art style is fantastic, and the thing I really like about thisset of games. It's best in black and white, and I thinks it's the strongest point here. Controls were pretty okay, though they could really use some tightening.

Now for the problems I drew. First of all, I could not get past the penultimate section of hard mode, with the gauntlet of little shadow things and fire breathing mosquitos that can destroy you in an instant with the two larger creatures at the end. Here is the reason why: I couldn't use my ultimate. Everytime I did it broke the camera, and I had to reset. Meaning I had to try and get through the gauntlet with normal attacks, which was just about undoable. In the process of trying though, I managed to expose a few other little flaws in the combat.

Now this is where I draw my main beef. The combat felt very slippery, and I never felt like my blows had an impact on my enemies. Changing direction of attacks on a dime was difficult. The lack of any block function was a huge detriment.

Now, I recognize that we could "jump" to get out of enemy attack chains. But this had almost no effect against the bugs, which were in midair already. This basically nullifies our only negation tactic.

The biggest squib here is the difference in recovery time though, which I find unacceptable. All of our opponents had a 2-3 second period of invulnerability, which we did not posses. Add the fact that their combos can't be broken and the fact that the Ultimate attack can bug out he camera, and you get an unwinnable scenario. Either give both protaganist and enemy the same recovery time, or get rid of the recovery time on the enemies.

I'd also like to bring up the fact that the game is only about a half hour long, with no replay value. But I may start to get more petty than constructive, so I'll cut the review off here.

Wait...

I've played this game before. This same exact game was released a few years ago, possibly under a different name. Was this stolen?



So-so

Very good game, FAR too easy and short.



This game is very good, but I'm having a bit of trouble with the controls, maybe it's just for me, but it just lags and keeps doing whatever the hell it wants even when I've let go of the keys. Also, attacks need to reach farther, for enemies can continuously knock you back, and it'll just happen again if you try to attack.
