JPH, you are late.
Whats this game about? The title makes me think it's a dungeon crawler, but adventure?
Are all the NFO's on this site broke for everyone or is it just me?"
What ferrariman said >.
I thought this game had been hyped up for ages as well. Now no-one even knows about it. Apparently it's an average dungeon-crawler that randomly changes as you play. It's big selling point is a dynamically moving dungeon (even when you're in that part of the dungeon, it will move about).
Think the stairs in Hogwarts, it changes as you play. Will check this out to see if it's any good, but according to reviews, it's just above average.
Huh, wasn't it delayed 'till December ? Nice surprise dump, can't wait to try it.
Side note : given nearly all of their recent efforts sold horribly in Japan (ASH and BD+ bombed pretty hard, and Away didn't even sell 2000 copies !), one gotta wonder how Mistwalker hasn't kicked the bucket yet.
I saw gameplay vid and it's look like:
Action (RPG?) + Snake
Hooray! It's not delayed!
Or it leaked earlier.. whatever
I was looking forward to this
Well, just played through the first dungeon, and though it's not quite what I expected, I like it quite a bit. At first I wasn't too impressed. The graphics are kinda "meh" and the game doesn't really direct you much to start. But after completing the first dungeon, I see a method to the madness. It seems to have a fun, tight formula in place.
Wow, finally. I've been waiting for this one for a while now. It has gotten some pretty good reviews, so I'm anxious to get started.
It's pretty good. It looks like it's heavy on presentation and atmosphere. It's sort of very Zelda like in it's look and characters.
As far as gameplay, it's a dungeon crawler with a time limit to get to the top or bottom part of the screen before one half is removed from the screen. You have to collect treasure and other items to level up and collect helper monsters before this all happens. It's a great new approach to an old genre.
I can see this staying on my card until I finish.
I didn't even know this was out untill I checked here.
it has time limit? i think i'll pass
This is getting released already?? Gamefaqs said December 2, VGReleases said back on the 21. You kinda wish one of them would be right and non-contradictory.
this was leaked by gamestop so im not shocked it got dumped early/
i love it so far...speed dungeon crawler = yum yum
the character models look stupid..
BUT it has a cool game mechanic.
something that hasn't been done over 9000 times for a change
i like it so far.
It's not really a bad thing for this game. Maybe you have to try it to see what I mean. You'll see one part of the screen shake and you'll just have to get to the other screen before it changes/shuffles. The levels will keep shuffling until you go down a level that leads to the next floor. It repeats if you don't go down so there's always time to collect all the items again if you miss any.
So you don't die from time running out to leave the shuffling screen. You die from the shuffle itself. The time is just the warning you have before the shuffle comes. Maybe I should have called it the shuffle countdown instead of a time limit. This is why I always suggest for people to try it themselves in case my words are misleading. There's no experience like your own experience.
I think I'm gonna stick with it. I played through some more this morning, and the second dungeon is quite a step up in difficulty...but then the third dungeon is easier. Only fought one boss so far, and though he was pretty simple, it was fun and he was cool to look at.
I like the production, though. They really made a nice, tight package here. Not sure how long before it gets old, but I like it. It also has a kind of simplified Pikmin thing going on with the flubongs (or whatever the heck they're called). Not much to it, but again, fun.
i just poked around and i couldnt find the sound files
did the undubbers fund it yet?
