Game and RuneReview – Hammerwatch and Faster Combat
Double update this Wednesday! Since I fell behind, I decided to put the Runescape and game reviews together in one big fat entry.
First is Hammerwatch! A roguelike dungeon crawler, you choose your class, ranging from a Paladin, Ranger, Rogue, and others and try to meet with your companions that are stranded on the other side of a bridge that goes out at the beginning of the game. You roam around the dungeon, murdering everything you run into, collecting keys to open doors, and coins to eventually upgrade your stats or abilities. You can also collect vendor coins which actually make purchases cheaper, which will help a lot in future purchases.
And now for the RuneReview! Combat got updated to be more responsive and less laggy. After talking to some of my clanmates and some in Twitterscape, I’ve gotten mixed reviews on what they think. For myself, I think that the update did a lot better, I use Revolution primarily and it is seamless in moving from one ability to another. Now I still need to use a familiar with this and try it as well, but just from the combat stance, it’s very nice. As for the aggressive monsters, I haven’t tested them yet, but it’s good that some of the more arrr monsters are menacing again.
