School of the Dead: Anastasia

School of the Dead: Anastasia

I don’t enjoy many shooter-type games. This one, however, caught my attention because of its bright, neon-ish appearance (yes, I’m the type of person who totally jumps for graphics). And probably because both the videos and screenshots looked kinda weird. I tend to like weird games.

School of the Dead is the story about a cute neon-pinky girl named - you would never guess… - Anastasia. She sits in class when suddenly a strange accident happens. In a short period of time the school is filled with hideous monsters. Anastasia must find her little brother and needs to get out before it’s too late.

Serious review alert, no memes here.

This game is a hilarious action platformer and is genuinely really great, it’s definitely one of the funniest games I’ve ever played but also has challenging and fun gameplay, though it’s a bit unpolished and frustrating at times.

There’s a lot of small bugs I encountered, but they were mostly just funny to see and didn’t really get in the way (a boss once froze in place and just let me kill them, moving platforms act strange when you go at them from the wrong side, and other even smaller things). There’s also a lot of framerate issues stemming from the lack of optimization, but it’s mostly just during cutscenes and doesn’t inhibit gameplay too much.

TLDR: Semi decent double jump platformer. Held back by odd minigame choices, pacing and difficulty issues and low audiovisual ambitions.

This is basically NES mario. But you can double jump. You can swing a sword at close range rather than jumping on things to kill them. You can wallgrab and jump from wall. You can swap your ability attack.

Abilities are kinda neat, throwing bombs or shooting lasers, you can charge it for more power. Coins are actually used to unlock static bonuses, not a bad idea.

**TL;DR: it’s no masterpiece and has some very noticeable problems, but it is overall a perfectly serviceable game that will provide a couple of hours of lighthearted fun, and it’s cheap enough even at full price (and often receives huge sales anyway) that I’m pretty sure fans of the genre would find value in the short experience.

6.8/10 - Still better than Mighty No. 9**

I really am not one who bothers writing reviews, but I’m going to go out of my way because I feel people have been a bit too harsh on this little title. Let me be clear now, it’s nowhere near perfect, and has the misfortune of belonging to a genre that is already oversaturated and filled to the brim with imitators, which means it has to compete with a huge amount of similar games, including a lot of well-made indie ones. But if you don’t go in expecting the level of quality you’d want from Megaman or Cave Story, you might be pleasantly surprised.

I expected much more. This Game-Maker sadly suffers from a lack of ambition and creative thought. The UI design is lacking, the audio rarely works and the game is incredibly imbalanced. Hopefully in the future this can be improved, although that may take a lot of work.

Great mix of roguelike and squad based strategy. Unique setting and mechanics for a zombie game. Love the art style and the music is very enjoyable and gives a nice tone. Very polished with no crashes or issues so far. Has that addictive “one more turn/mission”. Glad I found this hidden gem.

recently got this game on sale, got completely hooked within the first three missions

the style, dialogue, combat, and crafting system are all top notch, 10/10

some of the things that hold the game back in my eyes is the movement, often times passing through another person (or vice versa) can mess up my placement, but to be fair thats just a learning curve

the combat enforces high mobility because of the healing combat, and i think thats really interesting. It makes positioning, resource management, exploration, and map awareness very important. Also requires a little bit of tracking which “patients” you have already treated, etc

I adore this game on a variety of levels– from the fast-paced combat to the more methodical RPG-like elements.

With that being said the default controls for gamepads on PC (both Nintendo Pro & XB1) just feel unnatural, and from what I could fing there isn’t a way to remap them in-game. This would be a wonderful improvement to an already wonderful game.

A boss rush rogue-lite that has 3 playable characters and a decent amount of replay value. However, the game also features randomised map exploration that may include regular enemies, shops and special events. I managed to finish the easy difficulty within 30 minutes, although I think there are 3 different final bosses. It may not sound like the game has a lot of content, but you have to consider that higher difficulty may require more upgrades before you can tackle it, plus you can replay with different characters. When you die you might earn some points that could be spent on the skill tree with 3 pages.

Valdis Story: Abyssal City

Valdis Story: Abyssal City

Valdis Story: Abyssal City is one of the best games i’ve played so far, i’ve been so hooked on to it that i have yet to become bored of doing the game over and over, it feels like each playthrough is a challenge and the hardest difficulty which is unlocked after your first playthrough really puts your skills to the test.

The storyline is quite a fun turn of events as neither hell or heaven is the good guy here!

You start off on a ship with your crew then some giant monster comes and crashes your ship and you all sink and end up in Abyssal City which is deep under the sea, it turns out that you have been caught up in the middle of a war between angels and demons and your only way out is to battle your way through hordes of angels and demons as you search for your missing crew!
