Cavemen Tales might be a development and administration simulation to win over those that may in any other case overlook the style. Does that opening line sound acquainted? When you’ve learn my overview of Country Tales, it ought to. Cavemen Tales is kind of a reskin of that title.
I suspected as a lot from merely wanting on the screenshots and studying the outline on Nintendo’s game page. Which is why it sat within the overview queue for some time; I didn’t really feel like taking part in the identical recreation one month later. However right here I’m, battling how to not plagiarize myself.
Look, I assumed Nation Tales was a reasonably good recreation. So it ought to include little shock that I really feel (in lots of situations) comparable about Cavemen Tales, or Caveman Tales, because it’s spelled on the Swap eShop. However it really is, in impact, the identical recreation. The construction is sort of similar. The structure and your duties will trigger déjà vu. Even the story hits acquainted notes.
Frankly, the story was the one factor with the potential to raise this recreation. You’re a caveman residing above the forest. I suppose Forest Man doesn’t have the identical ring? In contrast to the inventory characters (feral, shaggy, slow-witted, uncultivated savages grunting like Tim “The Instrument Man” Taylor), these “peculiar” characters are fairly articulate. However even with a refreshing take, I discovered the Nation Tales characters have been higher. I cared about them extra.
The story right here can also be very underutilized so far as the visuals go. The fashion isn’t all that totally different from its predecessor. The builders significantly missed a chance to throw in massive numbers of dinosaurs to make Cavemen Tales stand out. It’s an actual bummer, as dinos can elevate up most video games.
So that you’re left with an all too acquainted 40 degree journey, with the identical management quirks. Cavemen Tales continues to be semi-addictive and has some good music. However the feeling of “been there, finished that” is as actual as might be.
Cavemen Tales isn’t pretty much as good as its predecessor—the theme’s weaker, and the characters are much less interesting. Largely, being an premature reskin, it simply can’t have the identical influence that Nation Tales had. There’s no less than one different recreation within the ol’ Tales sequence (Kingdom Tales). Will it even be coming to the Nintendo Swap? In that case, I’m going to strive laborious to get a contemporary reviewer. I’ve had my fill of Tales video games for some time.
