First off, I haven't played the first game. Thus I receive the privilege of having an unbiased opinion about the series, but I might lose some context about what I am playing.
Interesting take on the whole fixed side-scroller beat 'em up. Good pixel art with fantastic animations. However, the gameplay here is pretty stale. All that you're really doing is stabbing things to get lifeless shards so that you can by powers to get more lifeless shards, to get more powers...and so on. There's nothing that is really keeping me playing, nothing compelling about the game. I found myself bored in under 5 minutes after finishing the tutorial. The medals will add a little to this, but not much...a game should be good without achievements. It might help if I had some sort of back story to go with, or i knew the reasons specifically why it mattered that the mortals were trying to achieve immortality (this could possibly be a link to the last game that I have missed because I haven't played it, but even then a recap might be nice), but right now the light humor of "Challenge accepted!" doesn't quite cut it was a reason to play.
Still. Fantastic art.
If we work on a next expansion to Necrorun, my wish would be to add a last level with a lot of bosses you have to defeat, to eventually reach an ending on the story.
However, the game will always be about the challenge. About trying to get the maximum combo and hi-score you can.
I miss the first game, Death is more like a villain in this one. Also, it seems that the trees are still the annoying part as sometimes they are in an impossible spot to kill. I just think this is a step backward from the first game, and it seems the medals aren't working.
It was actually our intention that death was the villain from the beginning. The heroes are in essence, everything that is part of this world that is subject to simply disappearing one day because of her.
fix the medals please, nice game
Nice game!Can you make another maps for this,please?:3
Newgrounds medals aren't working, for one, and for some reason sometimes it won't let me jump and I just run into the next platform..
