Review: My Time At Portia (PS4 PSN)


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Extravagant Abode?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Topics tagged under adventure on  Ap_3d710

My Time at Portia, released on April 16, has been well received by the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One communities alike.  It has several points that make it an excellent game.  Do you think you’ll enjoy it?  We think so and here’s why.

Topics tagged under adventure on  Ap_c8c10

Developed by Pathea and published by Team17, My Time at Portia is a relaxing yet highly addictive game.  This crafting sim has several activities to keep you busy throughout your gameplay, from crafting to farming and many more in between.

Starting out with Pa’s inheritance of the workshop, you’re thrust into the world of Portia at a fairly good clip.  The tutorials are very simple, and the controls are extremely easy to figure out.  After chatting with Presley, you learn you must register your workshop in order to accept commissions, which is the lifeblood of this game as far as its currency, gols, along with earning relationships with your fellow townspeople.  There is the main storyline, and it’s entertaining but feels slow at times.  It’s not enough to sway one from the game, however.

As the game goes by, the missions become increasingly difficult along with relationships harder to earn. They aren’t insurmountable, but they do take a bit of strategy and finesse at times.  New areas of the map open up as you complete your tasks, which lead to more opportunities for your character to flourish.

Now to the very integral part of the game: your workshop.  This is what the game revolves around.  You need it in basically each mission you attempt along with upgrading it.  Your missions are based upon certain levels of machinery, and the quests will not progress until you reach that milestone. It’s not impossible, just time-consuming.  

The devs have been extremely helpful and polite to the community, listening to their complaints and promising full game content in the near future. Their communication is unique as far as a dev goes, but this is another aspect which makes the game great.

Now to the cons.  There have been bugs reported by players, ranging from ridiculous to game-breaking.  They are few and far between, but when they rear their ugly heads, you typically have to leave the area and start again.  The hopeful part is the devs are aware of this and are working diligently on a patch.  

Some of the timed missions don’t specify they have a strict time constraint unless you open your mission book and review the quest.  There were several times when I had the dreaded failed quest announcement flash across my screen, so it was only logical to restart the day.  With the knowledge of the timer, the quests can quickly be completed in the allotted time.

Relationships take a long time to attain, but it isn’t hopeless.  There are many different levels of gifting for each player, points determined by the type of gift you give the NPC. Between fostering these relationships and carrying on with your missions or free play, the player won’t run out of things to do.

Topics tagged under adventure on  Ap_49810

The graphics are in a soft 3D style, which adds to the peaceful feeling that the game has. Sometimes the rendering is comical, but all-in-all they are deemed pleasant.  The audio is another story. When you start playing, it’s interesting and enjoyable.  However, when you have a few hours in, the soundtrack becomes very monotonous.  A more ranged soundtrack would have been welcome in My Time at Portia.

Topics tagged under adventure on  Ap_3d710

Overall, the pros definitely outweigh the cons.  The fact that the devs are hard at work devising a patch makes this game more attractive.  Taking the entire impression of MyTime at Portia, we give this game good level of recommendation!

Afternote: Team17 released the update for My Time at Portia this past week (May 23) and like many gamers that play, I am very pleased with the updates and bug fixes that were plaguing random players.  While there are more updates promised, this one nipped the infinite loading bug and seemed to have solved the disappearing item bug as well.  The graphics are more pleasing since the patch with additions to the load screen and subtle differences in gameplay.  New quests and small improvements to existing content were added, making the game feel more rounded.  You can view full information on the update here.

Review: The Wizards ~ Enhanced Edition (PSVR)


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Solid Wizardry!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Topics tagged under adventure on  48611110

It is time! time to mage-up and uhm time-up… never mind! Ok here's our review for The Wizards: Enhanced Edition for the PSVR which is developed and published by Carbon Studios. OK so the game starts you out as an apprentice of sorts wanting to learn magic from a wizard, but the wizard who speaks to you doesn’t have a body, so he begins with a small tutorial explaining the basic fireball spell and shield spell. After the tutorial is finished you get introduced to your study or hub world if you will.

Topics tagged under adventure on  48611210

Basically you have 3 things you can do there. The main part which is a map were u chose the stage you want to go to, the table were you power up your spells and learn new one's. You can also test your spells as well. There's another table with a large sort of a sink? I'm not sure how to describe it, but it's basically water and a bunch of hands holding balls of colors and if you drop a ball into the water you can dip your hand and paint your hand the color you want for fun we guess.

You also have a fireplace were you can burn a book just for giggles.  Also while you on the map choosing a stage you have the option to insert a card into the stage that changes certain things like enemies have more hp or enemies are weaker, you only start with a few but as you progress you will find chest with a new card in it basically to alter the stage for a more challenging experience.

Now every stage has 3 hidden gems that you use in order to power up your spells and also depending how you fight you get scored on that but we honestly are not quite sure what determines a good score. In the end its just for a leader board thing, unless you’re into being number one on the leader board you don’t have to worry about that.

Now regarding the story, we found it ok, but nothing that really wowed us. Basically you travel through time and save certain time periods from monster and some sorcerer who's casting an evil spell. The somewhat troublesome thing thar I noticed is that it’s a little bit too linear in the sense that there no monster around the map you just explore get trapped and have to beat monsters and survive in order to proceed, I was hoping for a little more interaction or to make it more lively but the stages continue same way, explore, get trapped, defeat enemies, continue. However we did find fighting bosses interesting.

The game also has an arena mode, but it really doesn’t add anything all that exciting and like the campaign mode it has the same spells and you power up the spells by getting tokens which you get by playing in the arena and getting good scores, the arena has 3 modes, one where you defend pinewood from monsters while remaining in one spot only without moving, other mode is red crystals spawn around the map and you have to destroy them cause if more than 8 or 9 get damaged over time you lose, and the last one has you defending 3 giant crystals from monster attacks, the pinewood stage is the hardest because you can’t move, just shoot spells left and right and kill monster before they reach the town, the one with the red crystal was so easy and boring that I let the monster just kill me.  

It was like 3 to 4 minutes of destroying crystals over and over again while completely ignoring the monster chasing us. And the last one is sort of like the pinewood one only that this time you moved over a large map while defending 3 crystals. Our main problem with the arena is that there’s no music, at least nothing that would get you motivated all the time you’re going to hear constant grunts from the enemy. You can also use and receive card like in campaign mode.

Visually the game looks really nice and has the option to play standing or sitting and adjusting heights to a certain height you can even changed it from teleporting to just walking or both, you can even change how you turn if you do sharp instant turns or slowly turn which you can also adjust the speed in which you turn, but personally I got more dizzy slowly turning than instant sharp turns.

Topics tagged under adventure on  48611513

Good things:

1: It looks visually nice

2: It’s quite fun to cast spells doing gestures

3: Has a good variety of control adjustments like for sitting or standing and  how it changes, how you turn which is very nice

4: Fighting bosses with magical spells feels pretty cool


Bad things:

1: Story is not very entertaining after a while

2: Too much repeat of the same explore a little get trapped, fight and continue.

3: Needs more spells the amount is not bad but it gets pretty repetitive quickly.

4: Needs better music especially in arena it just doesn’t motivate me and I personally don’t care about leader boards.


Topics tagged under adventure on  48611610

Overall I give the game a good level of recommendation. It’s not a bad game, but it could be better, however it’s about the norm for a VR game, I also didn’t comment on the PS Move controller detection cause I don’t have a lot of space where I live so I have to make do but the detection was good just had a few problems with the height making things to low or to high but I think that was more my problem with camera placement than the game. Also for those who care about leader board it should detail better how well you score.

Score: ★★★★★★★☆☆☆ 7/10

Review: Evoland Legendary Edition (PS4 PSN)


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Legendary Voyage!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Topics tagged under adventure on  111

Developed and published by Shiro Games, Evoland: Legendary Edition is a series of two retro-style action-RPG's that are heavily inspired by classics such as The Legend of Zelda, Final Fantasy, Chrono Trigger, Metroid, Mario, Diablo, and many, many more series. But does this live up to the series that are the source inspirations for the game? Not quite, but it's still an amazing set of games nonetheless. Continue reading our review to find out why we enjoyed the game so much!

Topics tagged under adventure on  Evolan10

The story of the Evoland games are actually quite good and have tons of references from classic characters, to anime and western cartoons, and even non-animated programs. The characters in the games are quite lovable, but the one's in Evoland II are by and far more complex and relatable. The gameplay is pretty interesting as well. In the first game you basically start off in a world reminiscent to an original Gameboy title, but as you progress your game will evolve to become more and more modern, mostly by finding the upgrades through treasure chests.

The second game handles this differently, the game has a time-travelling theme with each era in time representing a different era in gaming. Both games also have different gameplay styles and elements that represent different classic series such as The Legend of Zelda, Final Fantasy, and more and at times you'll face turn-based battles, platforming segments, and more in this short, but sweet duo of quests!

Topics tagged under adventure on  310

The first Evoland is extremely short clocking in at around five to six hours in length while the second Evoland title is far longer clocking in at just under fifteen hours in length. It'll likely take around forty hours to earn the platinum trophy for the game. The game can be quite brutal on the hardest difficulty setting as well, but on the easy setting it is an absolute cakewalk so the standard difficulty is recommended for most first-time players of the game.

The controls are also superb which is always a good thing. The audio-visual presentation is absolutely incredible in Evoland as not only do the visuals and soundtrack perfectly reflect every era of gaming, and look AAA quality for each era save for a few exceptions. Speaking of the soundtrack it is quite catchy and enjoyable and fits the game perfectly.

Topics tagged under adventure on  Evolan11

Bottom-Line: With an enjoyable story, excellent gameplay and controls, and an incredible audio-visual presentation with only a few minor exceptions in the visual department. The only other complaint we have with the games are the fact that they are extremely short, especially the first Evoland title, but otherwise the game is amazing! We give Evoland: Legendary Edition a great level of recommendation.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Score: ★★★★★★★★★☆ 9/10

Review: Eden-Tomorow (PSVR)


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A Massive Disappointment Like The ill-Fated Titanic...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Topics tagged under adventure on  900x

Developer: Soul Pix.
Publisher: Soul Pix.

Ok let’s review this game, when I played the demo for this game I was excited and intrigued because it seemed like a game were you would need to survive and would need to venture out and find many means of survival. However after playing the full game after 3 hours or so it all went downhill, let me explain, basically you start in a sort of drop ship falling down to a planet and it seems while in mid air you were in the process from awakening cause you were asleep but the drop ship gets torn apart and it crash lands. After landing you get attack by a monster that flies and you quickly get out, you are then greeted by a little robot or drone that got damaged in the crash and can’t remember his name or purpose and your character can’t remember anything either all he has is a photo of him and his wife and son.

Topics tagged under adventure on  900x

Essentially the drone explains the basic controls of how to use him to scout places, that in order to control him you need to be inside a ring the creates a barrier that protects you from harm, that’s basically how the entire game works you walk a little, get stuck by a wall or something similar and you have to look for a “safe zone” activate it and then use the drone who calls himself newton  and always find 3 energy core to boost his shockwave and even thought he tells you  that you only get 3 shot to brake the wall, it’s so simple and easy you had to be a complete moron to miss the shot on a big wall and even if you shoot it in 1 shot the other 2 just disappear.

As you progress in the game the main character starts getting flash backs of his past revealing what has happened.  Now the biggest problem with this game aside from the graphics which most of the time all you ever going to see is dirt and metal is that the game practically holds your hands throughout the entire game and it’s so linear there is little to nothing to explore whenever you control Newton its 90% of the time is to look for 3 energy cores to blast something out of the way with one shot which basically makes the other 2 cores useless.

The game also moves extremely slowly even when running it looks slow, and then there are part were the monster who sort of look like dragons are everywhere and you have to sneak by them which makes the game move slower.

Topics tagged under adventure on  900x

 The story is actually pretty boring, basically the story is that the humans built an ark, a ship to travel to another planet because it seemed that their home planet was messed up and can no longer live there and to manage the ark they made a supercomputer with an AI called mother she was suppose to keep the human in cryo stage and drive the ark to a new planet, however since she had the ability to think for herself she studied the humans and their nature and decided that humans are a plague and they don’t deserve to live except the main character so she decided to create her own human and tried to program them to act the way she wanted but before that when the main character was put in a cryo state she had put something in the liquid of the pod to induce amnesia.

Also  at some point the main character got out of the pot and opened a gate which let out the artificial humans mother had created and they ended up worshiping mother like some goddess but she didn’t want that so she decided to drive the ark into the sun but she needed the genetic code that was in the main characters blood to have that authority in the ship so she hacked the drones and send them to hunt him, newton since he was created by the main character wasn’t affected at first so after you finally get inside the ship you end up giving the blood sample anyway to go further into the ship, meet mother, end up giving her the authorization she needed and then tricking her in order to shut her down , then the artificial humans appear through a gate you open and give the main character a key to stop the ship from going into the sun however they didn’t know what the object did since they had little knowledge of technology, and that’s the only moment you speak with a person in the last 5 min of the game, after you stop the command of the ark, your characters passes out and then wakes up on a ship with the artificial humans and one of them is holding the picture of his family and  says I think know where the wife is and that’s it the game ends there with a “the end”.  The story was too generic and disappointing and I tried to summarize most of it because it left a lot of unanswered questions

Topics tagged under adventure on  900x

Bottom-Line: The game did have objects you can get in certain places but everything looks the same and so boring that I didn’t bother to look I just occasionally found some. Also this game uses the ps4 controller not the PSmove. So I give Eden Tomorrow a poor level of recommendation due to the boring story, having little freedom to really explore and the game being completely linear while holding your hand. The camera was fine, however.

Score: ★★★★☆☆☆☆☆☆ 4/10

Review: The Legend of Zelda ~ A Link To The Past (Wii U VC)


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Link To The Amazing!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Topics tagged under adventure on  Wiiu_s13

Developed and published by Nintendo, The Legend of Zelda: A Link To The Past returns to the formula that the original game in the series utilized, but adds to it in many ways and all of which are positive improvements! Continue reading our review to find out why we think you should add this retro game to your Wii U Virtual Console collection of games!

Topics tagged under adventure on  Wiiu_s14

The story in ALTTP is by and far better than the one that the original The Legend of Zelda title had and showed that RPG's weren't the only genre that could be epic in this regard! The gameplay while similar to that of the NES original added quite a few changes such as eight-way movement, much more complex equipment, weapon and equipment upgrades, and even an entire second world.

The game is also quite lengthy for an SNES game that's not a JRPG, clocking in at over 20 hours in length! The controls are also easy to learn which is always a good thing! Another good thing is the game runs much better on the Wii U than it did on the original Wii with far less stuttering and frame-rate drops.

Topics tagged under adventure on  Wiiu_s15

The controls in the game are quite good, but we highly recommend using the Wii Classic Controller Pro for the best experience. The game's Off-TV play is executed perfectly with a great balance in its sound-level and ALTTP looks absolutely gorgeous on the Wii U Gamepad.

The audio-visual presentation is also superb with gorgeous cartoonish graphics that are exceptionally detailed for an SNES title, and the animations are fluid with rarely any dropped frames. The soundtrack is also pure bliss with catchy chiptunes and surprisingly good sound effects!

Topics tagged under adventure on  Wiiu_s16

Bottom-Line: With an amazing and lengthy story , excellent gameplay, great controls, and a nearly flawless audio-visual presentation, The Legend of Zelda: A Link To The Past has aged gracefully and is just as fun today as it was when it was released well over 25 years ago! The better frame-rate compared to the Wii Virtual Console release makes this the most definitive re-release of the game thus-far! We give The Legend of Zelda: A Link To The Past for the Wii U Virtual Console a perfect level of recommendation!

Score: ★★★★★★★★★★ 10/10

Review: Yomawari ~ Midnight Shadows (Vita Retail)


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A Frightening Tale of Friendship & Togetherness!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Topics tagged under adventure on  YomawariHaru-noscale

Developed by Nippon Ichi Software and published by Nis America, Yomawari: Midnight Shadows is a creepy game that proves that friendship can overcome anything, with a heartfelt premise like that it must be a fantastic game, right? Continue reading the rest of our review to find out!

Topics tagged under adventure on  20171025203930_1-noscale

The story of Yomawari: Midnight Shadows follows two girls trapped in a nightmarish hell where ghosts and other supernatural creatures are running rampant in their hometown. They must reunite and work together for there to be any hope for them to figure out what has happened to their town and to survive. The gameplay and settings in Yomawari: Midnight Shadows are surprisingly eerie and gave us plenty of jump-scares during the course of the game.

Basically the flashlight you obtain early on in the game allows you to see spirits and other dangers, however you can't fight them and instead must hide until the creatures or spirits who spotted you give up their search. This stealth element is pretty enjoyable, but doesn't always work if a certain creature knows where you are so it's best to get a little distance between you and the immediate threat before hiding if at all possible. There are times where certain key items are needed to distract certain spirits or ghosts, but if you are an old-school gamer this will pose little to no problems at all.

Topics tagged under adventure on  469143-YomawariMidnightShadows

The controls in the game are straightforward and easy to learn while the difficulty can be quite unforgiving if you aren't used to  retro-style stealth-based adventure games. The game is fairly short as we beat the game in under 10 hours though it might be possible that we didn't fully explore the game's areas. The game is PSTV compatible which is always a plus in our opinions!

The audio-visual presentation is superb as expected from Nippon Ichi Software! The pixel art is flawless, the dim lighting adds to the eeriness of the game, especially if you play the game with the lights off in your room as the developer intended.  The character and enemy models as well as the world itself look gorgeous as Nippon Ichi put alot of love and attention into the intricate details that give this game and series a distinct level of uniqueness that will leave a lasting impression.

The soundtrack is mostly ambient, but it really adds to the eeriness of the game. It might not be all that memorable, but it's still nice to hear nonetheless. Some of the sound effects such as screams, heartbeats, and other spooky sounds really add to the overall experience we had with the game!

Topics tagged under adventure on  20171025200545_1-noscale

Bottom-Line:

With great gameplay, flawless controls, and a fantastic audio-visual presentation, Yomawari: Midnight Shadows will draw you in from beginning to end with it's spooky gameplay and charming visuals. If you're a fan of retro adventure games this is a must-have! We give Yomawari: Midnight Shadows for Vita a good level of recommendation!

Review: The Legend of Zelda ~ Breath of The Wild (Switch Retail)


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A Walk On The Wild Side!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Topics tagged under adventure on  900x

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of The Wild is a fantastic open-world adventure game that completely reinvents the franchise. And while it's an excellent title it feel like it's lost some of that Zelda magic. Despite this we still feel the game is one of the best titles in the franchise. Continue reading our review to find out why!

Topics tagged under adventure on  900x

Breath of The Wild is an open-world adventure game and possesses a massive world with tons of secrets and hidden areas to explore and despite being much smaller in scale than Xenoblade Chronicles X, Nintendo did a fantastic job with the topography of the world in the game to make you truly feel like an explorer! This is the game's greatest strength, however it's also its greatest weakness as well since the game nearly does away with complex puzzle solving and dungeons in favor of smaller and easier shrines.

These mini dungeons number in the 100's, but are substantially simpler than a typical dungeon in the Zelda series. With the exception of this, however Breath of The Wild is a fantastic entry in the series and other aspects such as the story-telling as well as sidequests and pseudo guild quests are superb and will keep you entertained for many hours!

Topics tagged under adventure on  900x

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of The Wild is also the first game in the Zelda series to have full voice acting in most of the important story scenes which gives a breath of fresh air to the narrative of the game! The difficulty of the game is fairly easy for the most part, though it can become somewhat challenging at times. For those who want a challenge, there's a difficulty setting for that! The item scavenging and pet system are extremely rich and can make exploration extremely fun for completionists!

You can also cook and craft items in the game as well. This system is somewhat limited, but is enjoyable nonetheless! The Legend of Zelda: Breath of The Wild is also by far the longest game in the Zelda series clocking in at over 300 hours to complete one hundred percent!

Topics tagged under adventure on  900x

The controls in the game a flawless and are a piece of cake to learn which is always a very good thing. The visuals in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of The Wild are absolutely gorgeous and even give Xenoblade Chronicles X a run for its money in-terms of the best looking Wii U games! The environments as well as the character/enemy models are intricately detailed and the Cel-Shading gives the game a breathtaking art-direction unlike anything we've ever seen before!

The soundtrack is also absolutely flawless with fully orchestrated dynamic tracks that not only fit the mood of the game, but also change in rhythm and tempo depending on what's happening around Link which adds to the game's atmosphere!

Topics tagged under adventure on  900x

The Switch Difference:

Besides a slightly higher resolution and better frame rate on the Nintendo Switch version when docked both games are nearly identical. The only difference we can think of is that the Switch port has better textures and object models, but overall you'll have an amazing experience with the game regardless of which console you play it on!

Topics tagged under adventure on  900x

Bottom-Line:

With an incredible story, superb gameplay, and flawless controls, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of The Wild will draw any Wii U or Switch owners to the game while the unparalleled audio-visual presentation will keep players coming back time and time again. Honestly the only drawback that the game has is that it is too different from the other games in the series, however in-terms of open-world games, Breath of The Wild is in a league of its own which is why we give the game a perfect level of recommendation to any and all Switch and Wii U owners!

The soundtrack is also absolutely flawless with fully orchestrated dynamic tracks that not only fit the mood of the game, but also change in rhythm and tempo depending on what's happening around Link which adds to the game's atmosphere!

Bottom-Line:

With an incredible story, superb gameplay, and flawless controls, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of The Wild will draw any Wii U or Switch owners to the game while the unparalleled audio-visual presentation will keep players coming back time and time again. Honestly the only drawback that the game has is that it is too different from the other games in the series, however in-terms of open-world games, Breath of The Wild is in a league of its own which is why we give the game a perfect level of recommendation to any and all Switch and Wii U owners!

Score: ★★★★★★★★★★ 10/10

Review: Chronicles of Teddy ~ Harmony of Exidus (Wii U eShop)


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

One of The Best Adventure Titles For U!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Topics tagged under adventure on  Large10

Developed by LookAtMyGame and published by Aksys Games Chronicles of Teddy: Harmony of Exidus is an Adventure-Platformer in the veins of Zelda II for the NES or the Wonder Boy series. The game was originally nearly broken when it launched on the Wii U eShop, but was quickly patched "at least in North America" so what do we think of the title now that it's been patched? Continue reading our review to find out the answer to that question:

The gameplay in Chronicles of Teddy is very polished and enjoyable, with enough content to be considered a full retail release! There are four main dungeons chock full of unique enemies and bosses as well as several smaller mini-dungeons to test your wits! The game has quite a steep difficulty spike near the end so expect to get stumped!

Topics tagged under adventure on  Large11

A unique element of the game is that you communicate and solve puzzles using a unique musical instrument in the game. In fact if used cleverly enough you can even get past certain bosses without even having to face them, which is a really cool feature in our opinions! You can also find new powers to progress further into the game's world after completing each dungeon.

The game's controls are quite tight and are easy as pie to learn which is always a very important factor for any game! The Off-TV-Play is always a welcome feature, as is the option to use any one of a plethora of controllers such as the Classic Controller Pro, Wii U Pro Controller, and of course the Gamepad!


Visually the game is gorgeous with colorful and cheery backgrounds, unique character and enemy models, and splendidly awesome bosses that really add to the overall experience and the sound-track is equally as enjoyable! You won't hear a single complaint about the audio-visual presentation from us, however the patch that fixed various freezing problems and issues that caused the audio to permanently cut-out in North America has not been released in Europe at the time that we published this article so expect a vastly inferior experience if you're a European gamer...

Bottom-Line:

With great gameplay, solid controls, and an excellent audio-visual presentation, Chronicles of Teddy: Harmony of Exidus is a top-notch eShop adventure that no Wii U owner should skip, unless of course you're a European gamer since the gamebreaking glitches haven't been patched up yet in the region. The game is a meek 2/10 in Europe in our opinions, however the fully functional North American version gets a great level of recommendation from us!

Price: £12.09/$14.99

Thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule to take part in
this interview!


[RWG]: Of course!



Could you tell us a bit about your team who worked tirelessly to
develop 8-Bit Hero?


[RWG]: I was actually the only developer on the game! I programmed it, made the art, and put it all together. I really do have my brother to thank for a lot of the level layout in various sections of the game, as well as a friend from school who made two of the levels.

As I was coming close to the finish line, I really was getting burnt out so I needed someone to help me finish up the last couple of remaining levels, and my friend did a great job.



How long did it take to develop 8-Bit Hero?

[RWG]: Actually working on it, it took about 3 months. I started it back in September of 2015, worked on it for about 2 weeks, and then needed to take a break for school. My brother continued working on level layout. Once January of 2016 rolled around, I got back to working on it. The game was completed in the end of February, but it took a few months to get it ready for publishing.



What games inspired you to create 8-Bit Hero?

[RWG]: Definitely the Zelda series, Mario, and any old-school punishing arcade game.



What is so unique about 8-Bit Hero? What sets it apart from other
action-adventure titles?


[RWG]: Mainly the "art" style. The 3D pixel art is something I was playing around with and thought looked pretty cool. There's really not a whole lot that sets it apart from other action-adventure titles, and I know that. I took on the project as a challenge to further my ability to finish titles that I start working on.

I've always had the issue of starting new projects, working on them for a time, and then starting something new. I needed to change that, which is why I created this pretty simple adventure game. I knew I would be able to finish it on my own without much issue.

Why did you decide to add co-op multiplayer to your game?

[RWG]: By the time I started the project back up in January, I kept playing it and thinking, "yeah, I know I was going for simple for finishing reasons, but this is way too simple." So I then added 2-player co-op.

When that was ready, I started testing it with a friend, and he thought it was really fun, so he dared me to make it 5 player by the next day. Once I was done with that, I got excited about adding new playable characters, and things just took off from there.



The music is fantastic! Who composed the tunes in the game?

[RWG]: I composed all of the music and created all of the sound effects for the game.



Are there any secrets or easter eggs in 8-Bit Hero to keep an eye out for?

[RWG]: Pretty much any time you find one of those hidden shops that pops up from the ground, or secret gems and armour, is a nod to old-fashioned NES games. The old-school games had so many random secrets that most people would never find, which I always thought was hilarious!



We think that's everything we wanted to ask! Thanks again for
answering our questions, hopefully we'll have the opportunity to
interview you again sometime!


[RWG]: Of course! Looking forward to it.



Take care!

[RWG]: You too!

The game looks to be a visual novel with heavy adventure genre elements throughout the game! Here's the official overview of the game:

Overview wrote:Hitomi Akeneno is a 16 year old high school student with a little secret - she has not one, but two psychic powers.

After receiving an invitation, she boards a luxury cruise ship with her friend, Chisono Shio. As soon as she enters a suite room, a loud explosion sounds…and she finds herself stuck, unable to get out. Is this an accident? Or something far more sinister…?

The only way to find out is to escape, with the help of her powers.
