Daedalus - No Escape reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Deutsch
Daedalus-No Escape is a Top-down shooter that is strongly oriented towards Unreal Tournament and Quake 3 Arena. There are Currently 5 Game Modes, 9 Weapons and many Maps. Lt. Developers will follow more Game Modes and Weapons if there are enough Players. If you don't want to gamble in Multiplayer, you can also play against Bots. The AI can be adapted to your own Liking from really light to very heavy. Everyone should be called upon to do That. The Control is a bit easy to get on the Default Setting, because the whole Map spins along and you quickly lose your Bearings. However, this can be switched to the classic Control for Top-down shooters. Due to the included level editor (which is really easy to use), there should also be No Boredom in the longer term. The Graphics are really handsome for a Top-down shooter. To my Mind, the Videos and Screenshots do not reflect the actual Quality. I have already played the Game as a Demo for several Hours and have to say that it is still a lot of Fun until now. Very suitable for Intermediate, but you can also sit for longer without which you get signs of Fatigue. From me a clear Buy recommendation.

"Revive the competitive experience and bring it to a new level. 8.8/10 "If something has Daedalus – Do Not Escape that would be quality, design, gameplay and mechanics, a work done with affection and patience, polished in each of its details. Here I was able to find a simple gameplay and a very addictive multiplayer. It Is The first thing you will notice when playing (obvious), each room has an incredible design, either by textures or dynamic lighting. The Light follows your character, so it will only keep lighted what remains right in front of you, the lighting changes as you move between the rooms creating the feeling of persecution when moving with enemies behind. The Playable field makes interesting these changes of light, because only where you point your character you will see, which surely cause you to die repeatedly because of a player well hidden behind the wall or in the corner. It Is A shame that there are not many people playing Daedalus, if it were the case would have had the opportunity to review each and every one of the modes of play by my own hand instead of just reading from them, each one differs greatly from the previous although it is nothing that never We have previously seen in the game of the same class. The game includes modes like; High Score, Deathmatch, Capture The Flag and Last Man Standing, of which I could only play Deathmatch and Last Man, although the 2 that I have not been able to prove are already perfectly described by themselves. Unlike human players, artificial intelligence won't do much to kill you, which can be fun by creating a butchery of soldiers and bots, but nothing compares to getting face-to-face with a human opponent. Pros: Great variety of game modes. Incredible graphic Style. Addictive and entertaining Gameplay. Excellent use of light and maps. Cons: Lack of a variety of environments. Conclusion: Daedalus – Do Not Escape is that kind of games that come in an unexpected way, raze everything and then stay still. It Is Perfect to play with friends and even to play alone, fun, addictive and brilliantly designed, just and I have had some negative thinking about it and if I have been skeptical at first I have already learned the lesson. If you are looking for quick action, raw and a couple of hours of online fun Daedalus is a compulsory purchase.
