Duo Princess – Beat ’em up? More like, cast and watch!

…and somehow,a pumpkin is involved.I DON’T KNOW!I haven’t played the original game “Threads of Fate”,also known as “Threads of Fate”,”Dewprism” and also as “Threads of Fate”.I don’t know much about the characters and the original story,but hey! – That is something to look forward to in the future I guess…

So “Duo Princess” is a pretty old Doujin game based on “Threads of Fate”.You play as Mint or Maya and you get to beat various mobs and bosses throughout few stages.Each character has her own style of playing,with Mint being more tanky and direct approaching,while Maya relies on ranged attacks and…

Well,regarding the spells that the game will grant you through the whole playthrough via scrolls,their effectiveness goes something like that – The First scroll grants you a good spell for both characters,if not “A-must-have” for Maya to be able to deal with the mobs and bosses in the later stages.Every other spell that you get after that is pretty much useless,due to its cast time,range or damage input.Except maybe for the fire-based-whole-screen-barrage spell for Mint,which is pretty much as effective and important as Maya’s first additional spell that I just mentioned.Then you get the last scroll,which grants the exact same spell for both characters that pretty much destroys everything on the screen,turning the endgame into a “Run and cast” situation.

For a title from 2003, the graphics in the game are quite alright.The CGs in the game are pretty neat as well.The music is fine too I guess… Although,the desert stage is a master of sending the player to Dream Land.Both the music and the layout… Then again,I don’t really remember ever playing a game with a desert stage that would do otherwise.Deserts… they are not too fruitful and exciting in terms of information that would keep out attention and conscious ticking for too long…

Duo Princess DONE!

The variety of enemies and bosses is quite decent,but it tends to quickly lean towards the “recoloring sprites” formula.There is also a boss rush towards the end game,but it feels really pointless,given the fact that the game gives you the scroll of “Let’s make sure you won’t have trouble finishing this game…”

There is also a 2 Player co-op mode!Grab a friend and have some fun!This is a good pick for those who seek some co-op videogame action,when “Goof Troop” can’t cut it anymore!Steal all the scrolls for yourself and watch your friend struggle against the masses of generic mobs!This is probably the jerkiest thing you can do in this game.That and maybe stop in your tracks when your friend is trying to jump over a pit,so the screen can freeze,making his/her character fall to her doom.I have no idea why I’m giving advices like that…

BE NICE TO EACH OTHER,JUST LIKE HOW MINT AND MAYA ARE!

P.S. I learned what the pumpkin is all about…

NEVERMIND,go back to playing “Goof Troop”…

My score for this game is a solid 6.4 out of 10.It’s pretty looking,fun and simple to play,but it lacks a good replay value and it’s on the easy side of difficulty.

…and I like Maya more than Mint.That’s related to how good the game is somehow…

Nunchuck Charlie – A Love Story – [-] Mixed feelings

Nunchuck Charlie

Here’s a game that showed a great potential in the early part of my playthrough.Nunchuck Charlie – A Love Story – is a game about a guy and his teddy bear.Thhhzzs bear gets kidnapped and you outta travel through some weird places and save him from a bird-queen-crown-bird-bird.The game starts out with you having to make a dish out of cucumber and coconut by chopping them with your nunchaku.That’s pretty great!The art is also pretty enjoyable!The cast is pretty interesting too!Man,I wonder what this game has in store for me further ahead?

…and then you just go around and you beat enemies.AMAZING!You also solve puzzles,which are pretty much “Hit that thing” or “Push that thing with your bare body”.It was pretty disappointing,I am not going to lie.I guess I am pretty disappointed in the game due to it’s low difficulty overall.Even the achievments are quite easy to obtain.I don’t know.I feel like this game had a potential flavor,but it was just not used…at least not in good way.[Good is defined as “How I wanted it to be”]

NUNCHUCK CHARLIE DONE!!!

There is also a potential “New game plus”,where you get to //s#poilersspoilerspoilers\\\,but overall,it’s the same game all over again,if not even easier.That’s…yeah!No!No…

Then again,fans of the easy genre would love this game.You can also notice few neat touches in the game in terms of interact- SPOLERSPOILERSPOILER!!!

… and everyone is spoiling the new “Star Wars” movie.Talk about humans being themselves in this modern age of maturity!This is game related somehow,I DON’T KNOW!Here’s 5.2 out of 10.My mother loved it so it’s alright!
