Let me start out by saying that this is a fantastic game and you as the one man army you are did a superb job start to finish.
music is always so good for game battle sequences and the main theme is still ever so mesmerizing.
-Tons of new areas, clever puzzles and challenging boss fights.
-Love the elemental synergy between spells such as water into electricity
-Really cool secrets such as glitch and the forest maze puzzle.
-Adding a new character was a very nice and refreshing change.
-Addicting enough for me to play 20 hours worth.
-Could play on normal and then swap to epic for the boss fights.
-Lots of recycled items, weapons, gear and enemies. ESPECIALLY in an RPG where the game is based on all 4 of those hard to stay into something when new things happen as much.
-Characters have not changed at all nor have the skills they used except for a few. Anna though a cool addition to the trio, is basically Nat with small boobs, yet when you give her gear she grows larger boobs? (Like in anime I guess) I wish she looked more like her own person and less like a clone.
-Game was too long, I know it is a RPG but I felt to myself near the end of the game I was being dragged along by nothing but just wanting to finish the game. I was not having fun the last 5 hours because it just felt wayyy to grindy.
- The ending being such A CRAZY FINAL FIGHT was brought with a less epic ending cinematic or even scrolling credits to give it that end game feel. I know credits are in the option but eh, would have been a nice touch to maybe add that with funny blooper screen shots from the game.
I know I have way more cons than pros, but I say this because we all already know the game is awesome. I just want to give you insight from a person who follows you and many others like you and hopes that you keep cranking out amazing games every year or so. I only write long reviews like this for your games, because you deserve it.
I hope you read this and it does not anger you. I am only trying to strengthen your ability to CREATE BRILIANCE!
So I finally beat this damn addicting game.
I could never review such an epic game without beating it 100%. I can honestly admit I was really not too fond of your last 2 games and had not even looked at anything but a few images for your new game. The fact that you added an hub world, treasure chests and even quests to this game made it 10x better than anything you have created to date. You are truly skilled. Enough about that, I will get to the review part of my review now.
The random battles are great, you can skip them if you want for harder boss battles or grind your way to the top for a less difficult fight later on. I am a fan even though it does get slightly repetitive at times. That is what an RPG is for the most part (grinding) so I really can't complain.
The items and skills are such a good addition to the series. If anything upgrading and picking what you want to use next always keeps things interesting. Also having 3 party members added more balance and less redundancy making it that much more enjoyable.
I did not notice until about the mammoth boss (once he owned me) that you could upgrade weapons and armor at the forge and once I did this I felt so overpowered, it felt awesome.
So many medals and so many interesting changes from what you had made before. I spent a good 13 hours on the normal difficulty. I don't think I will have the time to beat it on the epic difficulty however I think I got the most out of it that anyone could want anyways. Cheers man, I hope that one day you are making your own games for the consoles or the PC outside of just flash. I don't know how it works but stuff like this would do so well on the Xbox lives indie game section.
It took me 3 days.
However, I finally beat it. Spot on with the movie and a blast to play. Thank you for the auto save feature... :P
The "fights" really made me LOL.
Clouds move too slow.
I only did up till lv 7. The game is not super hard or anything it's just that it moves so damn slooooooowwwwww. I mean after I die by accident or just building a cloud shape wrong I have to go and do the same thing again but in slow motion. You should of made like awsd fast and the arrows the speed it is now. I would of gave you an 8 if you did something like this. Decent at best.
Ok this game was fun.
For all the people bitching about lv 6 I honestly had no issues with it. I died the most on the outer wall lv ( the final area ) to be honest. Very few games actually make you think and remember while still staying fun. This game is very well rounded and I loved it a whole bunch, as for the speed run.. I am pulling a good 6 minutes.. now how do I cut that down to 3 minutes without breaking my keyboard?
I feel like i'm playing a basketball game that has nothing to do with basketball, thanks to Stampers sound. I enjoy the animation more than the game itself and the voice acting is very good even though its the same voices used in Tankmen and Blockhead. Game play is interesting yet I think it takes a bit to master. Seeing it has a save feature I don't plan on beating it in one sitting anyways. The game is very playble not too difficult but I have only beaten the first world and a few from the second world. This game is supreme good for people! Even if you hate basketball.
So let me get this right?
You made an INCREDIBLY easy 3 lvs of a game that I got past in about 5 minutes total and used like 1 save egg near the "bats that fly underwater" then I get to the end and fight a wizard that has over a 5 times harder learning curve than the entire game? To top it all off I can't drop a save egg... at the boss and then have to repeat a lv I don't die on over and over. Lots of fun man... I am only giving you a 5 for the Music and Art Style. The game play is bad.
A epic sequel to "The Beard"
I must say I enjoyed kicking the crap out of Luis (sorry Luis :p) However I figured out his move set and how to dodge it a little too easy. I actually had more problems escaping the cave after Luis' defeat lol! Good game none the less :D Power of 3 is gonna rock \m/
I have gotten a good hour of fun out of this game. This genre usually does not interest me what so ever. Maybe it's the castle crashers music... or the swanky pixel like art style you have. It is probably those cool upgrades, the things that make me want to keep playing to see what does what and how it can help me in the long run to get that last medal. I will come back later to polish the rest of this game off. You two did a great team effort making this and is probably second on most hours I have clocked for a newgrounds game.
I did not find any "bugs" however when you get ABDUCTED by a ufo there is a small grammar error at the end when you finish on the bonus that says "Abducted be a UFO (500) points" I am guessing it is suppose to say "by" not "be" but just thought I would point that out if it has not been brought up yet.
This is a great game. Not hard. Easy to pick up and looks very shiny. I like Shiny things.
What's the trend with near impossible medals?
If I remember right when I played a game I did not want to smash my fist into a keyboard. I admit you have a decent game here good music too. However the difficulty setting is rather bothersome. I got "5" points for just finishing the damn game in like 17 minutes and losing around 180 lives. Yet I get 100 for beating the game without losing a life (ok that's impossible, show me any NG user with this achievement, whos not you) Great game. I just wish flash game authors would make more reasonable medals, ones that did not make me want to plant my fist inside my monitor.
