Helheim Hassle

Helheim Hassle

Hello, new hyperfixation! You are just what I needed to get through everything else, my ray of light in this time of darkness!

That might sound overdramatic, but in all seriousness this game is excellent. To be honest I was a bit worried that the world of Manual Samuel might have been ditched, so finding out that this takes place in the same universe was a relief! I’d been pretty attached to MS’s characters back when I was into it, and it would seem that Helheim Hassle is continuing Perfectly Paranormal’s trend of introducing characters you can really feel for!

Honestly, I too would want to escape Valhalla if I was forced to be on an Esports team.

The creators of Manuel Samuel is back with another game! And just with how Manuel Samuel was a unique adventure will humor surrounding Samuel’s unfortunate situation, so is Helheim Hassle. And fun fact, Helheim Hassle and Manuel Samuel takes place in the same universe and even on the same day.

Helheim Hassle brings us to a young teenage Viking named Bjorn Hammerparty who isn’t like his Viking brethren. Unlike everyone else, he is a pacifist. He doesn’t want to go out fighting so he makes sure he doesn’t get into a situation where he has to and he sure doesn’t want to go to Valhalla. However, during a battle that is sure to wipe out his whole village, Bjorn gets into a fatal accident while he was running to his hideout. The sketchy bridge he was crossing may have made him fall straight onto a bear. Once Bjorn comes to, he’s a ghost and his body is limbless. Before moving on, Bjorn attaches his limbs back on his body and talks to Modgunn to be granted passage into Helheim. However, his cowardly fall to his death was counted as him heroically killing a bear without a weapon and is brought into Valhalla by the Allfather.

Really captures the feeling of depression without being too… for lack of a better word, depressing? The game is still funny and doesn’t take itself too seriously. Somehow it’s very entertaining to be told how you’re an idiot and you’ve died horribly.

But then there’s also a really creepy atmosphere, very nice sound design, a solid sense of dread, and some very satisfying puzzles.

Really enjoyable, and I feel very smug for finding the secret ending!

Still not got that rocket launcher though…

I had so much fun with this game. Which is a weird thing to say considering it spent a lot of time all-too-accurately evoking the scathing self-deprecation and casual self-sabotage that comes with depression. Did it make me think about the times real-life-me had not wanted to get out of bed, and said mean things to the reflection in the mirror? Yes. Did it let me wave a spatula off a staircase and caress a questionable pile of black goo? Also yes.

Sometimes — especially in 2020 — there’s not much to do about the pitfalls of depression except to laugh and keep going. This game knows that, and in a rather tongue-in-cheek way, nudges us to remember. It’s a fun, satisfying little puzzle that rewards trial and error, persistence, and (if you’re going for the secret ending) the occasional madcap experiment. But most importantly, it tells us: Don’t worry. Try again tomorrow.

Savior of Light

Savior of Light

I definitely am hooked! The Story is beautiful. I love turn-based RPG games, so it fits quite the criteria. Savior of Light reminds me much of the old Final Fantasy and Legend of Zelda games. The music used for the game is also top tier!

Real player with 24.6 hrs in game

It’s very reminiscent of the first Final Fantasy game to me, which is pretty nostalgic.

Considering this is a free demo experience serving as a prologue to the entire story there is quite a bit of content to enjoy.

Savior of Light has that classic FF style of gameplay and combat mechanics.

Balanced throughout the story line to pose a challenge without requiring too much grinding.

Story, characters and the world are fun to explore. And the music might be actually my favourite part. I can’t wait for this to continue. ^^

In my original review where I had only played a few hours, I mainly focused the problem with the combat system. I want to give a more complete review of the game after completing it with all achievements.

Initially, combat primarily involves using ranged attacks and depending upon mana regeneration, where the primarily healing is through potions that have long cooldowns. Melee combat requires precise timing to avoid taking damage until you have more advanced weapons and artifacts. However, once you get further into the game and get better armor, combat is less problematic. There are a few challenging bits in the game, but overall the game becomes easier the more you play. By the end you are able to do effective combos of various moves using different weapons and abilities that make it so you don’t take any damage if you are careful.

Surprisingly, I didn’t just enjoy the game. I loved it and wish I could play more.

First off, Zenith isn’t exactly an action RPG, but a light hack’n’slash. You can engage in close combat or, if your manna allows, magically attack from a distance. There’s no real level up system, you can just equip better armour and weapons, which in turn boost your stamina, manna, attack and defense. Sarcasm remains unchanged and always at 999! :D There is a kind of a skill tree, where you can boost various aspects. Fortunately you don’t need to make hard decisions, by the end of the game you’ll have all the points to be fully upgraded.

  • Silly and funny Traps: Baked fish missile, Toothpaste turret, Watermelon bazooka… and much more! Over 15 types of gadgets are ready to be unlocked by you!

  • Break neighbors’ houses to collect resources. Use them to set traps or build a new room.

  • You can have Susumu make power-up items for you. But be careful! When he’s goofing off, give him some loving punishment.

  • Young jobless guy who is avoiding social interactions and shutting himself inside his room all day.

  • In Japan, people like him are called Hikikomori(shut-in), which has become a big social problem.

  • Enemies are trying to reach out to Susumu because they are worried about him, or want to mock him, or just to see him in the wild…

  • When enemies reach Susumu, the game is over. I cannot explain what exactly will happen there, but I can relate to Susumu so badly because I’m also a Hikikomori. I’m making this game solo just trying to reflect my own situation with this game…

Manual Samuel - Anniversary Edition

Manual Samuel - Anniversary Edition

I would like to recommend this game, really, but the final act totally ruins the experience, bringing everything to a grinding halt for what is otherwise a humor and story driven game.

It’s got fair-to-ok humor, lots of jokes that reminded me of the old Diskworld games, especially with the narrator interactions. However the humor is clearly targeting men, as the jokes are mostly physical humor, denigration and toilet laughs. Samuel literally pisses all over himself, and repeatedly vomits as a function of the game, which often comes across as lazy humor.

What is Manual Samuel ?

For a game that started pretty well with a funny sense of humor and a nice personality, its a huge shame it felt so hard on its face, Manual Samuel presents itself as a overconfident indie game but everything is just so pretentious and kinda mediocre towards the end, in fact after the initial moments the game started losing momentum, for a game that presented itself as something refreshing and well-done early to become something so boring and uninsteresting so fast was a huge shame, lets talk about why below.
