What's New in Version 1.1.01
Game polish and minor bug fixes.
This game is awful:
1.) horrible targeting system will cause you to stay stuck on an npc and likely ensue a cheap death. If this doesn't happen - there will be some lag and it will.
2.) Very repetitive missions. Every stage is built the same. Point a to point b. Hunt/destroy/protect/simulator. These are the missions in a nutshell
3.) The game becomes absurdly hard by level 25, that if you don't got a good case on your phone, you might destroy it with all the cheap deaths that await you. Difficulty is one thing, npcs that snipe you not even visible on screen nor timed unblockable/reflected attacks. Yea. Fun times await.
Other then the fact you level up (for gear, majority of the game is spent rolling backwards and killing off most bossess with your gun away.) - the stats don't make or attribute to anything. You leveled up! Stats are increased! But.. What kind of stats?? Just health and maybe sword damage? Idk. Seems same to me.
By the end of the game, its just a continous grind. Sams mission again and again. Committed +25 hours to this 'game'. Just beating it has absolutely no replay value.
The chance of getting gear out of the cache box is so incredibly rare, if not, not once happened for me is a waste and depressing. The npc specimen guy rewards you better than those cache boxes. Waste. Even the $ challenge missions make little sense. See lag deaths.
While I did have massive crashing issues with the game previously, for whatever reason it seems to have worked itself out. I don't know if it was something with my iOS settings, my ad-blocker, or what... but the game plays wonderfully now. I just became a level 15, and am REALLY enjoying the game. While it can be kind of a grind, the gameplay is fun enough that I don't even care. I spend more time trying to better my scores in the simulators than I do actually completing missions. I think always having that option of endlessly earning currency is incorporated to perfection here. I can't wait to get my guy to a level 50... bet those weapons are SAWEEEEEET!!
More Robot Entertainment Fun
As a die hard fan of Hero Academy (I play almost every day since release), I have been looking forward to their newest game. I watched some gameplay and wasn't too blown away, so I held off.
The game goes on sale, so I give it a go. Playing is a lot different than watching terrible videos. I'm shocked at how much I enjoy this game, and think they did a wonderful job on the controls. From rewarding the timing of moves to the Echoes, they really nailed it.
Kudos to Robot Entertainment. You guys rocks.
