Hacia mucho que, por falta de tiempo o de ganas, no comenzaba un videojuego. He podido empezar a jugar #Dandara y, por el momento, me ha gustado porque le da una vuelta extra a un gรฉnero tan trillado como los #Metroidvania. Creo que lo terminarรฉ, ademรกs no parece demasiado largo (cosa que le da puntos extra).

Total NewPlays: 278

Game: Patch Quest

Platform: Steam
Release Date: Mar 3, 2023
Library Date: Sep 14, 2023
Unplayed: 0d
Playtime: 24m

Patch Quest is a top-down 2D twin stick roguelike-metroidvania-monster catching bullet-hell mashup.

This is the fifth game in this month's Humble Choice bundle.

With cutesy cartoonish graphics, you run around a "patchwork land" armed with a lasso and a gun-that-is-not-a-gun-but-really-it-is-a-gun, to capture monsters and ride them while you shoot others with the not-gun that makes them "fall asleep" and disappear.

Unlike last night's game, it's not that I'm too tired too understand it, it's just that it just all feels kind of bland.

There's a basic story to try and provide a reason to want to care about this odd maze full of monsters and give me a reason to catch or not-kill them, but I was kind of glad when I was done.

Patch Quest is just kind of:

Let me just start with admitting that I used a hex editor on my save file to boost my health to... many times the normal value... so I could actually defeat the final boss.

That said, with some perseverance I *did* manage to deal with all the other difficult boss battles scattered throughout the game.

It's an absolutely lovely #Metroidvania about a cool girl who has traveled to a living castle to break a curse that killed her parents.

#VideoGames

A cutscene frame where Europa and her stuffed bear companion encounter a ghost.
Europe fighting a sphinx-like creature called the Shadow of Demise, while standing on a floating platform in a slightly infernal landscape.
Europa introducing herself to her new stuffed bear companion, by saying (regarding her name):

"Mine is a bit odd too. I'm Europa."
One of the lost musicians you can find throughout the castle. She's a butch woman dressed in red and white with a fang necklace and a side-shave. She says:

"Perfect! I'll be at the theater, I'm supposed to meet my girlfriend there soon."

Come to think of it... I never did find out which of the other girls was her girlfriend?

Really playing Super Metroid for the first time, I'm surprised at how good it is. It doesn't feel like a 30 year old game.

It manages to guide the player so well through level design, but still always requires and rewards thorough exploration.

So you have to really engage with the world, and that in turn makes the atmosphere so much stronger. (+ the awesome music)

Such good design, it must have been mind-blowing for people who played it back in 94

Platform: Steam
Release Date: Feb 7, 2018
Library Date: Apr 7, 2019
Unplayed: 1579d (4y3m27d)
Playtime: 15m

Dandara: Trials of Fear Edition is a 2D pixel-art Metroidvania platformer.

It's not like any other platformer I've played. Instead of running and jumping, as Dandara, you fire yourself from surface to surface, but only the surfaces that are covered in salt.

As you move around the map, the map is moving relative to you as well, sometimes rotating through 90 or 180 degrees.

After the first couple of levels familiarising you with the controls, the Metroidvania aspect of the game starts to reveal itself, as you make your way back and forth through multiple areas to activate switches to raise and lower platforms covered in salt so you can traverse to the end of the level.

You also find yourself armed, to shoot environmental threats and mobs.

Unfortunately, it just didn't grab me. I found myself watching the timer waiting for the 15 minutes to be up.

Dandara is a:

Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship Edition (yeah, I'm not retyping that constantly) is not what I expected. It's one of those games I repeatedly skipped over, because I assumed it was a luchador-themed beat-em-up.

Turns out it's actually a 2D Dรญa de los Muertos/luchador-themed Metroidvania brawler mashup.

For a game that's 9 years old, it doesn't play like a game that old. It feels like it could have been released in the last couple of years, and I think that's largely down to the art-style.

It's also multiplayer co-op playable, but I've not had the chance to test that yet.

Platform: Steam
Release Date: Feb 25, 2017
Library Date: Dec 4, 2018
Unplayed: 1674d (4y7m1d)
Playtime: 32m

Hollow Knight is a 2D Soulslike Metroidvania. I find it wryly amusing that six months ago, that was word salad to me.

Now I know I'm dealing with a 2D platformer that will have me traveling backwards and forwards through different zones, with parts of levels inaccessible to me until I find MacGuffins or character upgrades that will allow me to access those areas.

It's also going to be hard, and I'm going to die a lot; I'm going to be faced with the option of trying to get back to a save point to redeem the stuff I've picked up and upgrade, or risk it all to collect more stuff. If I do go back to the save point, all of the stuff I killed will have respawned.

That's the game play; the relevance of all of that to this review is that this isn't a game I could have appreciated six months ago.

It's one of the unexpected discoveries of this project, that in pushing myself to play all of these games has given me a new appreciation for the mechanics underlying many of them, that were opaque to me before.

Hollow Knight has a melancholy feel to it, both with the soundtrack, but also with a muted, stark palette that reinforces the Soulslike feeling.

There's not a lot of explaining what's going on, so when an NPC does have something to say, it's slowly opening up the world around me.

I still feel like there's a lot to put together to make sense of what's happening, but Hollow Knight seems:

Platform: Steam
Release Date: Apr 28, 2016
Library Date: Mar 12, 2023
Unplayed: 79d (2m18d)
Playtime: 26m

Ori and the Blind Forest is a Metroidvania platformer, and it's utterly gorgeous.

The prologue broke my heart a little bit. I don't know quite what else to say about this. The sound design is also wonderful, immediately drawing me into Ori's world.

It seems that Ori's goal is to restore life to the forest, but I haven't played enough of the game yet.

However, I wanted to keep playing, which is a significant change since the start of the year.

One of the odd things about playing so many platform games over the past few months is that, in something that has genuinely surprised me, I do seem to have improved at my platforming skills.

It's still a struggle, and I'm not going to be playing anything on hard mode (or probably even normal), but on easy mode I find that platformers go from something that just provides me with endless frustration, to a challenge that feels rewarding.

Ori and the Blind Forest is captivating, and is:

Game: Sundered Eldritch Edition

Platform: Steam PC
Release Date: Jul 8, 2017
Library Date: Jan 7, 2019
Unplayed: 1564d (4y3m13d)
Playtime: 45m

Today I found myself faced with a "pure" Metroidvania. I even Googled it to make sure I understood the term.

So, some of the games I've been referring to as "platformers" may actually be better defined as Metroidvanias, and that is to say, I don't like them.

I find them frustrating, and I lack the hand-eye coordination to pull of the moves at the right time, and somehow this morning, none of that mattered.

I thought I'd knock out the game this morning in a quick 15 minute play session, and write up a review, and that would get me focused and into work time.

Some time later, I quit out to find I'd been playing for 45 minutes. Somehow, I managed to pull all the pieces together and find a rhythm, and what a marvellous rhythm it is.

It's an incredibly atmospheric game, inspired by H.P. Lovecraft. Part old-world horror, part technology, dropping through floors, and wall-jumping, killing everything in sight.

While (as usual) I was playing in "easy" mode, it wasn't easy for me, but not so challenging I wanted to punt the controller out the window.

It makes me want to give some others another try.
