Sometimes: Success Requires Sacrifice reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Deutsch
Product received for free Beautiful, entertaining Game Sometimes: Sucess Requires Sacrifice Is indie game that basically consists of a Collection of five Minigames. Gameplay In Sometimes: Succes Requires Sacrifice We have a few different Game Modes to Choose from: Classic Mode: Here we have to find the Starting Portal, but everything is dark. To brighten the Environment, you have to sacrifice the Character. For each Sacrifice, there is a small Light Source that helps with Orientation, hence the Name of the Game. Every Sacrifice brings us closer to Success. The Game concept is very casual and pleasant, as we have no Limit of Time and Life. I don't know how other People are doing, but I find the Idea pretty good and also kind of instructive and philosophical. After all, you can also transfer the Idea of the Game to Life, as everyone occasionally loses something and doesn't consider getting anything Bigger with it at all. You have the classic Mode after 20 Minutes at the latest and you can deal with the other Game Modes. Endless: You always look for the medals on the same (first dark) Meadow and you often have to sacrifice yourself for it. Once you have found all The medals, the Level is finished. Basically, the Mode is invoning and pure Employment Therapy so that the Game net becomes too short. Trust Case: The Name already says it. You fall and you have to dodge the Obstacles. Chips: I say the Mode is like Pacman, except that the Characters (= Ghosts) don't track you so hard. Heart: Click on it [gamejolt.com] you will be directed to this Page. Sometimes you lose your Heart is a free Playable promotion for the Main Game, by Running through the Levels via jump and Run and having to cheer your Light Source with Gems over and over again. A little bit of a shame that you have to download this Extra, because I like this Game mode more than the Main Game. Once you have played all The modes, you are after an hour with everything at The latest (The Game Mode Heart is not triggered by Steam, as it is a standalone game) Grafik/Sound/Other The Graphics, as you can already see in the Trailer, are quite rudimentary. However, the Main Focus is not on the Graphics, but on the Style of play. An important Point why I can recommend the Game is the beautiful Music. In My Opinion, the Soundtrack is loosely worth the €1 and I'm also just listening to it about Steam as I write this Review. Verdict Sometimes: Success Requires Sacrifice Is a short Game that just wants to have the Player shut down as there are no big Challenges. But I don't understand What the XP and Levels are supposed to be for. I couldn't discover a Benefit. The Only thing that bothers me is the Brevity of the Game. Here you should have inserted the Game Mode Heart and put an Editor in. Then the Game would have more Appeal, occasionally throwing it back on again. However, on the other Hand, it is also quite good that it is so short, as the Game Mechanics only promise entertaining Fun. In My Opinion, the Main Focus is on Music and quiet Employment. As if you were puzzling to good Music and the Mind can relax. Nevertheless, I find that €1 is a very good Price for the Game and I can recommend the Purchase If you can start with the Game principle. Tip: The Game asks if you want to clear the Storage Level. At the first Start you should resect, then only load. And the classic Mode can only be played through in one Go, individual Levels are not saved. Did the Review help you? Then follow me in my Steam Group, where I write my Reviews as a Curator.
