About

Imagine a Diablo-like game with the mouse clicking part replaced by an horizontal shoot'em'up core gameplay. That's what is Drifting Lands in essence: first and foremost an action-RPG (Hack'n'Slash or however you may call this). Then and only then a different kind of shoot'em'up, accessible to a wider audience than usual.Drifting Lands main characteristics are: randomy generated missions for replayability 100 levels of difficulty to climb with your skill or your ability to optimize your gear and powers 70 active and passive powers with various effects: dash, area of effect attacks, time control, etc. a complex item generation system with a lot of stat modifiers to optimize, unique items with "game changer" powers 3 classes of ships for different profiles of players Not your usual bland heroic fantasy universe Drifting Lands is designed to meet both shmup and hack & slash enthusiasts’ expectations.With the choice of your class, you’ll have the opportunity to take control of different ships, best suited to your favorite gameplay style. You’re a super player of bullet hells and don’t mind dying on the first few impacts ?You’ll find a perfect class for you with high-damages / low-resistances interceptors. You’ll benefit from a smart customization of your gear, but your performances on the field will be mainly based on your skill.You enjoy the progressive design of a powerfull build through skills and inventory optimization ?Your class will offer more resistant ships, able to put up with a lot more impacts. But if you want to shine, you’ll have to be smart in the selection of your special powers and how you create synergies with your equipment!

Many Years Ago, a huge Disaster took place and destroyed this World. Mysterious Gravitational Anomaly keeps these huge Debris in the Air. There are still some floating Continents suitable for human Civilization, but these are controlled by evil corporations. Some Nomadic Communities try to survive with a certain Degree of Freedom. We are Part of one of those Outcast groups of Outlaws, Smugglers and Mercenaries, trying to survive in a fracturing World. Graphic: Drifting Lands can impress with a really good 2D graphics and great Effects. The Background Graphics were designed with a lot of love, but you could have got a Little more out of it. Basically, however, the Graphics have succeeded very well, although the Background Graphics play by Longer seem a bit Monotonous. Gameplay: The new indie title is a pure horizontal shooter with some Role-playing Elements. We have to shoot, dodge and use our Skills with Sophistication. Drifting Lands offers a good Challenge even for experienced Players, because really all Levels are generated completely randomly and of course we can upgrade our Ship as well. Sound: The Background Music is really interesting and fits perfectly with the Game. Furthermore, all Effects also have a considerable Sound and thus the new indie title can also convince completely. There's really nothing to complain about here and the French indie developers of Alkemi did everything right. Conclusion: Drifting Lands impresses with a very good Story, challenging Gameplay and classic 2D graphics with great Effects. Unfortunately, the Background Graphics after playing for a Long time unfortunately seem a bit monotonous. You shouldn't be put off By that, though, because Drifting Lands really has it all in it!

A very good cross between a scroll-shooter and Diablo. Thoughtful level desing, challenging bosses, interesting abilities. But the story ends a bit too soon.
