Review: Dragon Fantasy Book II: The Black Tome of Ice (Wii U eShop)

Steer Clear of This Fantasy...

Developed by Muteki Corporation and published by Choice Provisions Dragon Fantasy Book II: The Black Tome of Ice is the sequel to Dragon Fantasy Book I: The Volumes of Westeria which we thoroughly enjoyed in our Wii U and 3DS reviews of the game! Dragon Fantasy Book II is fantastic in theory, however many horrible bugs leave the game in a nearly unplayable state. Here's our opinions of the game.

Dragon Fantasy Book II is an action-rpg similar to Chrono Trigger in-terms of its mechanics, which would be good if not for major technical issues. First of all, during battles the game has a tendency to lag horribly which doesn't make much sense given the fact that the game could have run on a SNES given enough time and effort.

The battles are fast-paced whin the game is functioning properly. You can befriend monsters and have them battle alongside you just like in the first game of the series. The game is quite easy at times and the controls are nearly flawless the latter of which might be the only strong-point that the game possesses. Now to the ugly truth of the matter. Dragon Fantasy Book II is broken, the game freezes frequently, the audio cuts in and out, visual distortions occur regularly, and so many buildings and locations are buggy beyond belief...

Several buildings have a bug that occurs when entered which freezes the game and wipes your save data. There are other bugs that occur during certain story missions when you die that respawn you in an area that prevents you from returning to where you were before forcing you to restart the game from the beginning. These bugs are among the worst we've ever seen and seriously hurt this game's overall score...

Visually the game looks gorgeously retro and the music is fantastic as well! In-terms of the audio-visual presentation Dragon Fantasy Book II: The Black Tome of Ice could easily be mistaken for a 16-bit era AAA JRPG except for the constant static and issues with the audio cutting out and minor visual distortions that occur throughout the game. Honestly this game would be 10/10 material if not for the horrific number of game-breaking bugs that this game possesses.

Bottom-Line:

With flawless controls, excellent gameplay, and a fantastic audio-visual presentation, Dragon Fantasy Book II: The Black Tome of Ice would be a nearly perfect game if not for the fact that nearly every aspect of the game is hampered by serious game-breaking bugs. The issues are so severe that we can't recommend the game to anyone as-is.

Price: $14.99

Chrono Dragon Fantasy VII Cross!

Topics tagged under choiceprovisions on  Dragon10

Muteki Corporation and Choice Provisions have announced that their retro-inspired JRPG Dragon Fantasy: The Black Tome of Ice will finally be hitting the Wii U and 3DS eShops in North America next week! The price-point for the game hasn't been confirmed yet. The original Dragon Fantasy game titled The Volumes of Westeria released last July on the Wii U and 3DS eShops and was very reminiscent of the early NES Final Fantasy and Dragon Warrior games. Dragon Fantasy: The Black Tome of Ice , however is more reminiscent of SNES classics such as Chrono Trigger and Secret of Mana with an active battle system, group techniques, etc.

Here's the official trailer for the game:


Here's the official overview of the game:

Official Overview wrote:Join Ogden and the heroes of Westeria in this classic JRPG epic, Dragon Fantasy: The Black Tome of Ice. Travel through the frozen wastelands of Tundaria, experiencing action-packed battles without random encounters, using spatially aware Area-of-Effect attacks and power moves.

Review: Shutshimi: Seriously Swole (Wii U eShop)


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

Seriously Swell Shmup!

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

Topics tagged under choiceprovisions on  Wiiu_s40

Developed by Neon Deity Games and published by Choice Provisions Shutshimi: Seriously Swole is a very unique shoot 'em up title that has players take on 10 second waves of ememies as well as bosses and did we mention that it's blisteringly difficult too? Does the game as a whole warrant downloading it? We think so and here's why:

The gameplay is fast paced as you must take on hordes of enemies or a challenging boss in 10 seconds while trying to survive and rack-up points to spend in the shop to power-up your gun-wielding musclebound fish or change the elements of the next stage!

Every playthrough is completely unique which is a great feature of the game so expect plenty of surprises even after your 20th or even 50th playthrough! The difficulty is very unforgiving especially in the unlockable difficulty settings. Luckily, however you don't have to play alone as up to three of your friends can join you for some hilariously insane co-op!

The controls are fantastic and there are tons of different compatible controllers which is great for a game that utilizes co-op gameplay! The game also features Off-TV-Play which is a great feature when playing alone!

The game features two graphics options and BGM options one each that's retro or more modern both options are fantastic in both categories. The visuals are very fluid regardless of on-screen action, and the soundtrack is retro sounding and fits the game really well plus it sounds awesome to boot! Overall Shutshimi has an excellent audio-visual presentation!

Bottom-Line:

With superb gameplay with top-notch co-op, excellent controls with a ton of controller options, total randomness of the stages that seem completely balanced, and an excellent audio-visual presentation, Shutshimi: Seriously Swole is very close to perfection, however it's not quite there nonetheless the game is still one of the best indie titles released on the Wii U so far this year and has earned a near-perfect level of recommendation from us!

Price: $9.99

Score: ★★★★★★★★★☆ 9.5/10

eShop: Shutshimi Blasts its way onto the WiiU


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

If you feel that muscle bound macho men in video games are getting a little old and overdone rejoice, Shutshimi totally isn’t that.

Developed by Neon Deity Games and Published by Choice Provisions Shutshimi has players taking on the role of ……..….Muscle Bound Fish???

Yes that’s right Muscle bound fish, Muscle Bound Fish with memory problems, as they protect the seven seas with their “trusty Bullet Morphing Shotguns”. Shutshimi is classic Shoot em up that has players battling waves of enemies, collecting power–ups and battling awesome bosses.

Shutshimi isn’t just another Shump title though as its Ten Second Combat and Upgrade cycles add an extra layer of difficulty and gameplay that sets it apart from similar titles.

The WiiU version of the game will feature Co-op and Off-Tv Play via the Gamepad. Though the game has been released on the PSN Network and Steam for a bit it’s just today that it has been confirmed for WiiU via the games Twitter page. Look for this title to hit the E-shop on February 4th 2016.
