Tanzia reviews and comments

Early Access Review This game is pretty good, i like the Grafiks and gameplay but i think the controls of this game can be better... Controller controls are good but the Keyboard and mouse controls could be better! Otherwise playing with controller makes fun and its a very good game it would be cool when there will be a german translation in future ^^ German: Das spiel ist sehr gut Mir gefällt der Grafikstil und das Gameplay an sich, ich finde die Steuerung mit Maus und Tastatur kö nnte besser sein aber mit einen Controller macht es viel spass ich kann das spiel also mit einen Controller empfehlen Maus und Tastatur ist gewöhnungsbedürftig

Product received for free Early Access review Tanzia is a good game still in development, today you can only reach the "zone" 10 more or less, getting all possible objects and doing all the missions took me about 6/7 hours. The biggest problem of the game is the combat system, it is very slow and coarse, in the end in almost all cases it is best to run causing enemies to pursue you and when they are all together start hitting them with damage skills in area. There Are A few bugs and some parts that can be used for "farm" experience and gold without practically doing anything, only running, apart from that, the melee is the worst of the game, at least now, I could only get 2 wands and both did very little damage . Otherwise, the game has good ideas and a lot of potential, I think with a good development and listening to the community the game could become something very interesting. Right Now I recommend it in a good offer, if not, wait for the development is more advanced. Steam Mentor

This game is awesome! It reminds me of the good old days when games weren't just about good graphics. I enjoyed it alot. + great comic like graphics + interesting story + fun challenges + i liked the choice of skills (fire totem is my favourite) + you could really feel that the developers put their heart in the game o the movement controls are alright, i was hoping for melee attack while movin g though. I didn't miss it too much because of the spells. Things the developers should improve: - Mobs shouldn't follow you forever, it's annoying and even leads to some advantages you probably shouldn't have. For example i could make the huge turtle follow me to the lagoon, and it just died because i went into the protective bubble. Often times you have to walk unneccesary lengths to another area, just so the mobs will stop following you. - Let the player regenerate health/mana. Potions and Gems are alright but i think there should be an constant regeneration when standing still. Even if its just a little bit. It's annoying to walk again unneccesary lengths just to regenerate health/mana when you are out in combat. - I couldn't figure out how to make the quest with target practice dissapear. I focused that target maybe for half an hour... - A wing glider would be great for moving faster. Would fit in the world i think. Overall it's a really great game. I hope for more to come in the future (DLC's or maybe even a part 2).
