WeakWood Throne is an motion RPG printed by Drageus Video games. After I first took a take a look at the trailer, I assumed it will be charming and possibly even a little bit enjoyable so far as RPGs go. Sadly, this wasn’t the case.
I’m not fully positive what the aim of this sport is, and I don’t suppose the sport is aware of, both. You play as a anonymous character who runs round from display screen to display screen finishing mundane duties for NPCs and preventing enemies alongside the way in which. It doesn’t sound too unhealthy, no, however the place are we? Who’re we? Why are we right here? Is there a narrative? Is there a cause why we’re doing these quests for random NPCs?
No, there doesn’t appear to be a cause in any respect. With the shortage of story, there’s a scarcity of stakes. I didn’t care about any of the characters or what was occurring within the sport in any respect. The quests, which gave the impression to be the primary level, have been boring. They have been principally fetch-quests that didn’t appear to have any which means in any respect. For instance, an alligator wanted his guide about butterflies again. So, you speak to the man who borrowed the guide, however there’s one butterfly lacking. You want to discover the butterfly and provides it to him so he’ll provide the guide and you’ll return it to the alligator.
What do you get for these quests? Expertise factors and gadgets—the identical stuff you get if you’re out and about exploring and defeating enemies.
Expertise lets you degree up and earn factors to place towards your well being or magic factors. You’ll be able to put these factors towards energy and different stats, which is what you want for sure weapons. As you discover, you’ll discover weapons all through (or you should buy them from the city’s weaponry), however every weapon requires a specific amount of energy to be able to be outfitted. Whereas this is smart, it wasn’t truthful to start with.
The primary weapon you discover is a stick, and also you’re caught with it for some time. However the stick isn’t robust sufficient to defeat enemies, particularly when the controls aren’t responsive within the slightest. The sport didn’t know tips on how to intention even when my cursor was on the enemy or flower that’s not even shifting. You want to acquire sunflowers or carrots for quests and gadgets, and this was one of many hardest issues.
The controls are arrange as a twin-stick, so you progress with one stick, intention with the opposite, and hit with a button. It didn’t work with this sport, although. Even when I had the flower lined up good, I nonetheless managed to overlook a number of instances. In comparison with enemies which might be a lot larger and stronger than my stick, fight was tough.
The graphics are cute, however that’s about it for me. I loved the music, however the entirety of the sport is a single observe on a loop. There’s no selection.
Between WeakWood Throne’s lack of depth and story and poor controls, I couldn’t get into this sport. I used to be pissed off all through my total playthrough, and though the fight obtained a little bit simpler as I obtained farther, it was powerful to finish.
