Bo'ri Brew o'yinlari ostidagi mashaqqatli saboqlardan so'ng, Endryu Gilmur Katta Shakar, Chelik Mantis, Birlashtirish O'yinlari va Raqamli Uppercut bilan birlashib, geymerlarga zo'ravon dunyoning qorong'u taqdiri orqali murosasiz sayohat qilishni ta'minladi. Valfaris uy konsoli uchun va PC, va bu o'yin uni parkdan yiqitdi.
Bo'ri Brew Games vakili Endryu Gilmur geymerlarni og'ir metal, goth, hack-slush yonma-yon chiziqlar bilan tanishtirganda, Qatl!, shuncha yillar oldin, u video o'yinlarga ishtiyoqi borligi va geymerlarni o'zlarini ta'sirli va visseral his etadigan ko'p miqdordagi qon, qon va qattiq uradigan qurollar bilan do'zaxning ichaklariga olib borishga tayyorligi aniq edi. Qatl! kind of fizzled and died out when it launched, though, but not because of the concept; it was due to a lot of technical hurdles they didn’t overcome before release. Gilmour and the crew came back with O'ldiringlar! Orqaga Jahannam, va uyni boshqarish pultlari va shaxsiy kompyuterlarda yanada yaxshi boshqaruv, sifatli nazorat va ajoyib sur'atlar tufayli yaxshi qabul qilindi.
Siz barcha qiyinchiliklar va olingan saboqlarni aytib berishingiz mumkin Qatl! bilan bog'liq asosiy muammolarni hal qilish bilan shug'ullanadi Valfaris, such as ensuring you could complete the game from start to finish without getting bugged out, or having challenging but workable controls to navigate the 2D world, and most importantly creating a well-paced adventure that’s both fun and rage-inducing.
Tekshirish juda oddiy. Siz chap analog tayoq bilan harakatlanasiz va maqsad qilasiz. Siz chap qo'zg'atuvchi bilan harakatsiz turib blokirovka qilishingiz yoki qo'lda nishonga olishingiz, kema hujumini amalga oshirishingiz, asosiy zarbangizni o'qqa tutishingiz, shuningdek maxsus raketani otishingiz mumkin. Oh, va siz sakrashingiz mumkin. Haqiqatan ham asosiy narsalar.
Originally I wasn’t a big fan of the controls because I felt like aiming with the left analog stick was cumbersome and reminded me of the old metall Slug o'yinlar. Ammo men oxir-oqibat turli yo'nalishlarda o'q otishga odatlanib, keyinchalik o'yinga xalaqit bermay o'rgandim.
To'g'ri analogga ega bo'lishni maqsad qilib ishlarni osonlashtirish mumkinmi? Albatta, lekin agar u ishlayotgan bo'lsa, ishlaydi.
O'yin shahzoda Therionga ergashadi, u o'z sayyorasini moslashuvchan va kosmik zulmatdan vayronaga aylangani uchun Valfarisga uyiga qaytayotganida. Therion otasini topishga kirishadi, u otasining uyida dunyoning orqasida turgan odam, HAYVONLAR, mutant buglar va kosmik dahshatlardan vayron bo'layotganini aytadi.
Dastlabki bir necha bosqichlar juda oddiy, yonma-yon yurish, o'q otish ishlari. Men o'yinni Sega Genesis sarlavhasi bilan taqqosladim Doomsan askarlari, and that’s because there’s certainly a similar tone there with how the game is portrayed.
Shu bilan birga, Valfaris qo'lida juda engil, RPG mexanikasi mavjud.
Throughout your journey you’ll encounter items known as Blood Metal, which can be gathered and used to upgrade Therion’s weapons. You can acquire Blood Metal by either exploring the environment or killing certain sub-bosses.
There’s a limited number of Blood Metal scattered throughout the 10-hour adventure, so you’ll have to pick and choose which of the 19 weapons you you’ll want to fully upgrade.
Speaking of weapons… oh boy do they hit hard. You have a unique array of different pistols you can acquire, from railguns to blob cannons, to tri-shooters and flamethrowers. Each one can be useful for different situations and will sometimes be required to switch or swap depending on the enemies or section you’re in.
Bundan tashqari sizda maxsus qurol uyasi mavjud, u odatda energiya hisobiga ko'p zarar etkazadi. Bu sizning dushmanlaringizga hujum qilish va sizning maxsus qurol qobiliyatingizni ushlab turish uchun o'z energiyasini to'plash uchun sizning zanjirli qurol (lar) ni ishlatishda yaxshi muvozanatni talab qiladi.
Maxsus qurollar orasida issiqlik qidiradigan raketalar, qisqa masofali to'pponchalar, mini-qurol, elektr kamera va boshqa bir nechta qurol bor.
I’ll be honest, once I got a hold of the arc caster, known as the Bringer of Mayhem, it was the most reliable special weapon in the game save for when another weapon was required for a certain kind of boss.
Bitta ta'kidlash kerak Valfaris‘ weapon cache is that all of the weapons seem inviting to use, and they’re all effective in different ways based on your play-style. In fact, the weapon catalog reminds me of the different elemental weapons and tools you had to acquire in Chakan: Forever Man muayyan darajalarga yoki hududlarga kirish uchun.
Shuni yodda tuting Valfaris is not a Metroidvania. You can’t backtrack and if you miss something in an area, you’ll likely either have to restart from the checkpoint or restart the game. It’s punishing, but fair, and most times those willing to bite the bullet and suffer enemy hordes to explore will be rewarded with new weapons, Blood Metal, or the checkpoint tokens known as Resurrection Idols.
Tirilish butlari o'yinning eng yaxshi tomonlaridan biridir, chunki u asosan aqldan ozgan o'yinchilarni qurbongohda o'zlarining sog'lig'ini va kuchini tejash uchun butlardan foydalanmasliklari uchun mukofotlaydi. O'yin davomida borgan sari ko'proq va ko'proq tirilish butlarini olib yurishingiz mumkin, yoki siz o'zingizning o'yiningizni saqlab qolish uchun ularni qurbon qilishni tanlashingiz yoki ularni ushlab turishingiz mumkin, natijada sizning hayotingiz va energiya panelingiz yanada kengayadi.
There’s a huge risk/reward setup with the Resurrection Idols, which I think encourages gamers to go back and speedrun the game, or try different tactics.
This isn’t to say that the entire game’s balance is perfect, because it’s not. There are some segments where enemies repeatedly respawn, so you don’t really have time to get your bearings. Other times you have to deal with the fact that not all enemy patterns stay consistent, so sometimes this can be used to throw you off any recognizable patterns, which can be annoying since Therion handles like a heavily armored badass from the 16-bit era, as opposed to the very nimble characters you get to play in games like Tenchu, Sekiro or Tuz va qo'riqxona.
Men ba'zan kontrollerni devorga tashlamoqchi bo'lganman, lekin odatda men yuklamamni o'zgartirib, mavjud bo'lgan taniqli naqshlar ichida ishlashga harakat qilsam, ba'zi qiyin segmentlar ancha toqatliroq bo'lib qoldi.
Now in the headline I talk about the game being “manly” and mention that it’s a game for “heavy metal fans”, I know this is kind of burying the lede talking about it so far down, but I wanted to get the basics out of the way before talking about why I was so drawn to this title.
Ko'pgina o'yin mexanikasi va ishlov berish, 16-bit davridagi kabi, ayniqsa o'yinlarga o'xshaydi Robocop Vs Terminator, Mega Turrican or kontra.
However, it utilizes a really cool, dark sci-fi fantasy theme that looks like it comes right off the heavy metal artwork for bands from the yesteryears such as Manowar, Warlock, and Iron Maiden. There’s also some cool inspiration from newer artists like Eliran Kantor or the artwork for some of Hammercult’s albums, such as Steelcrusher.
There’s a combination of grotesque science fiction meets space-hell architecture.
Ko'pgina muhitlar va dizaynlar menga 1990-yillarning boshidagi klassik aksiyalar o'yinlarini eslatadi DOOM, do'zax dahshatlari va ilm-fan yutuqlari o'rtasida chuqur taassurot paydo bo'lgan va ular o'rtasida biron bir narsani boshdan kechirish xayolotining paydo bo'lishi. Valfaris u estetikaning mohiyatini mukammal egallashga muvaffaq bo'ladi va bu meni Therionga olib boradi.
In a world ravaged by outer-dimensional terrors and horrific monstrosities from the other side of a dying star, one would think that most people would be terrified of such creatures… not Therion.
Much to my surprise, he’s portrayed as an absolute badass from start to finish. Heck, even when he jumps down from large platforms the ground trembles and shakes beneath his heavily armored feet. He reeks of being a larger than life alpha male.
Uning xushmuomalalik va muloqoti, shuningdek, hech narsadan qo'rqmaydigan kosmosdagi jo'shqin texno-ritsarni eslatadi.
I was really taken aback by this because so many games these days give us some of the most insufferable main characters; either they’re always second-guessing themselves, or steeped in self-doubt, or whining all the time, or unsure if what they’re doing is right, or constantly bogged down by moral dilemmas.
It was doubly refreshing to have a main protagonist who was given a personality equivalent to the sort of hero we used to get during Saturday morning cartoons back in the late 1980s and early 1990s… only Therion isn’t afraid to rip, tear, and vaporize any and everyone that gets in his way.
Therion’s journey is complimented with a testosterone-driven soundtrack put together by Curt Victor Bryant from Celtic Frost.
Qo'lda pastga tushadigan ba'zi bir ohanglar bor edi, ular shu lahzada sizni ruhiy holatga keltirib, ishlanmaganlarni otashga, nopokni elektrga ulashga va infektsiyalanganlarni tutib olishga imkon berishdi.
Bryant runs the gamut of heavy metal styles, going from symphonic rock for the adventure segments, speed metal for when things get ugly and you need to channel your inner Doom Guy to eviscerate armies without prejudice, and doom metal to encapsulate your experience for when you’re moving through the decayed techno-hell structures that litter the ruined surface of Valfaris. Heck, there’s even some Gothic metal that kicks in while you stomp, crush, and inflame all beneath you in a skull-mech.
Musiqiy ohangdor, o'ychan va jasur qahramon uchun juda mosdir Valfaris.
Men bu o'yin haqida hamma narsa to'g'ri va yaxshi bajarilganligi haqida o'yladim.
Tugatish potentsial ketma-ketlikni yaratadi, shuning uchun umid qilamanki, Endryu Gilmur va Tomas Jenns antiteni ikkinchi kiritilishi bilan urishmoqchi. Valfaris seriyali.
Texnik xususiyatlarga kelsak, o'yin asosan old va orqa fon uchun oldindan tayyorlangan parallaks aktivlaridan foydalanadi. Therionning o'zi ham 3D formatida oldindan namoyish qilingan, ammo 2D platformer uchun rastrlangan. Bu o'yinning an'anaviy 2D o'yinlarining fizikasi va manevr qobiliyatini "suzuvchi" o'rniga tez-tez va 3D-ning ishonchsiz fizikasini saqlab qolishga yordam beradi.
Valfaris boshlang'ich yuklanishidan keyin Switchda qisqa vaqt bor. Qo'lbola rejimda piksellar sonini ko'rish etarli, ammo televizor rejimida o'ynaganda vizuallar loyqa ko'rinishi mumkin, chunki ichki piksellar soniyasi taxminan 720p ga teng.
Umuman olganda, menda portlash bor edi Valfaris. I purchased a physical copy from Signature Edition Games because I don’t trust digital distribution for as far as I can spit, and so far I haven’t had any problems with the game from a functionality standpoint. It’s well worth the purchase price for as far as I’m concerned, but that all depends on what you’re looking for out of a game.
If you enjoy unbridled hardcore heavy metal music with hard-as-nails gameplay, awesome dark-fantasy sci-fi themes and weapons that feel like they’re as devastating as they look, definitely buy Valfaris.
