DX-Ball 2: 20th Anniversary Edition reviews and comments

Translated by

Rarely write negative reviews, but this game is just disgusting. The Sounds on the spectrum in the 1990s were nicer. The Background cuts the eyes. On the video in the store plays music-in the game music plays only in the menu-there are no music levels. Levels are divided into packs of 20-25 levels. After passing the Pack-controller-yes, you will write a kind of congratulations, you have passed, but all-the counter stopped, start from the beginning. To get into the top, you need to deliberately grab all the bonuses, including the majority of the negative, as only so you can get extra points. In no case do not explode blocks-less points, Nlzja to miss the bonus transition to the next level, because you do not get points for the unbroken blocks. Most of the levels are armored and will crumble mostly negative bonuses. As a result, you will be in the half-hour of these levels waiting for the fall out bonus to pass through the blocks. With this + 1 life I fell only once in the whole time of the game, but the negative bonus, which instantly kills you-pieces of 20 per level. By the Way, the first pack, in which 20 levels contains 4 absolutely identical levels, just with different colors. As a result, we get a mutornuu, Squealku without music with disgusting, cutting eyes background and a limit of 20-25 levels in one game. Yes full of free arcanattrades with a more pleasant color gamut of levels, which are more dynamic, raging and more fun. I Don't see the point of paying for such a candid hack.

Product received for free More in the Retro Curator SoSeen, this Game principle is older than the Game itself, yet a Classic in its Genre. Even if it comes quite "late" for 1998 or seems outdated, it works fantastically. And for Fans who have already played it in Childhood Days, this is of course not only an improved Version here with the Anniversary Edition, but the best you can have. Items are explained simply in the Menu, there are a few collectables and the best one Workshop Feature with which the Level packs go infinite. Here are also a few Standard Things that were not always Standard at that time, for example, there is also an Option to upload his High Score. I hope there is more To be found here, as it is a bit Nieschig so far. For a chilly evening where you don't want to do anything after Work etc, or just so few Laps in between it's just fantastic. Little Criticism, hope it still comes after. There is music in The Gameover and Menu screen, but not in the Game. That would still be a good thing. Otherwise, THANK YOU to Longbow that they brought this Classic back in a very Version. Great new Features a Meeeeeeeeenge Level And a Classic Mode, where you can also inspect the Original. And for the few narrow talers, you can also strike Full Price immediately. Especially those who stand on Breakout Games or generally such Kind of Games. For all those who know and liked it from before, the Question "Buy or not buy" should be fixed immediately. :D
