What element are we talking about? Well of the “mandanga”, sirloin, one of the most important aspects of the game: weapons . Yes, because we can not understand this production of Dodge Roll without mentioning the arsenal that we can obtain when we inspect the precious treasures that hide inside the dungeons in which we must enter.
It’s a real party, crazy about guns. Titles such as the Ratchet and Clank saga or, even more recently, Broforce have delighted us with truly incredible arsenals. Well, both works pale in comparison to what this dungeon crawler offers us in that same category. Dozens of weapo
ns (more than 100) can be wielded by one of the various characters that come together in the game. There is everything! Rifles, pistols, a kind of Ghostbusters rays, bows and arrows, grenade launchers, cut of great destructive capacity, explosives of all kinds … And that we do not want to mention other more curious and imaginative to not ruin the surprise!
We are facing one of those games that do not forgive the untrained players
Maybe some of you are thinking that, due to this amazing offensive power that we have, adventure is what we usually call “a walk”. Error! You can go arming with patience, cool your head and warm your hands properly because we are facing one of those
In the purest style of what happens in some dual stick shooters, in many rooms of the labyrinthine areas of play that we walk are “feted” with waves of shots that sometimes occupy almost the entire screen. Authentic “bullet hell” skirmishes of which we can only
escape in two ways: by miracle or by using the technique of rolling on the ground (dodge roll in English, the same name of the studio). When we perform this action, our character becomes invincible during certain moments of it, so the “timing” becomes one of our main allies when it comes to getting out of each ambush alive.
As you can see, this is a title full of action. From a zenithal perspective we must go surpassing not only monsters of different kinds, but also fire traps, blades and other obstacles that make life impossible for us. As we have already warned you, the level of challe
Two characters can collaborate in the same console to eliminate the hordes of opponents while they advance in the labyrinthine decorations, which are generated procedurally in each new session with the title. What does not change is the final boss who wait
s for us when we reach the last room of each place we visit, which as you can imagine is really complicated to eliminate. The problem is that this cooperative modality is only local , at least in the version we have played. We do not know if in the future they will launch a patch enabling online mode, but for the time being it has been a pity that said network option has not been integrated at the start.
It’s a real party, a crazy thing about weapons
Leaving this last factor aside, until now everything works perfectly, and that we have not yet commented on all the ingredients that make up the gameplay of the title. As a good dungeon crawler, there is also room for marketing and interaction with nume
To all this that we have just commented it is necessary to mean its excellent control , which is as simple as could be expected and responds perfectly. And finally, their production values are quite decent, highlighting above all the sensational aesthetic line and the fluidity to which the action is developed.
