Out of the Blue (No pun intended!!)
This game is truly a hidden gem. I honestly never heard of this game till I stumbled upon it coincidently in the App Store similar games search results. I felt this game was short, like it can be finished in a day, but I purposely took the time on the game because I was hooked on the graphics and storyline and I was afraid to finish it. Another thing is that I felt it was anticlimactic, and the controls can get a little used to. Other than that, this game is beautiful, I love the character (Icey) and I felt I was her while playing. I swear, I wish I can find a cosplay costume similar to Icey’s, but no such luck. *Sigh* her in-game uniform is electrifying!! Hopefully there would be a sequel, and I would recommend this game to anyone who likes a good hack n slash!
A small gem with heart
I really liked this game, having finished it not more than 5 minutes ago. It has a lot of fun moments, and secrets galore, both big and small and that simply contain currency.
I have a few nitpicks, mostly with the controls. It’s port, so it’s never going to be perfect but I would still like a better dash button, I found myself trying to parry with it constantly but finding myself attacking or facing the wrong digestion. A floating left stick would be great as well.
One last thing, I won’t spoil it but there’s a trophy called a modern day Pandora’s box which is a secret and the reward for achieving it is a little lax. I would have loved a reward like an all around boost to damage or something more solid that what we get. Or potentially a counter wherein we kill a certain number of enemies and get an instant kill on the rest or something. Anyway, it is a fun little bit of game and I really like the interactivity with the devs as you play.
[Edited] Really fun! Exactly the hack&slash-meets-performer I wanted!
EDIT: I really really enjoyed it, but there are a couple things that unfortunately made me take off a star. The main thing is that the game is actually really small. I thought I had been still at the beginning but it turns out I beat it all in just a few hours, whereas Grimvalor, for example, kept me going for a much longer time. If this game had been longer, it would’ve been among my favorites ever.
The only other small thing is that the move list could’ve been a tad better; several of the ones at the bottom didn’t show a control but instead of nothing, it showed the control of the move before it, which was confusing. The shadow cut in particular could have been much better explained in terms of how it is activated.
Anyway, it’s still a really enjoyable game, and I’d still recommend it to anyone. :)
For the longest time, I’ve searched for a new game to play similar to Grimvalor, that meshed the hack & slash genre with the platformer that included hidden areas and secrets to find!
I’ve only just started and although it’s past midnight, this is now the first time I’ve managed to put it down after hours of non-stop playing.
I can’t really say this game is absolutely a 5* one since I’m still in the beginning, but so far, I really love it.
