The Braves & Bows reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Russian
The Braves & Bows – Almost the classical Metrodvania from the native developers from Gunsquad Development of The Braves & Bows were engaged only two people. The Hard way The Braves & Bows began in 2016, when two friends showed their project on the Global Game Jam. Later The game was abandoned, but in September 2016 the development of the game continued. And So, on August 3rd, the game goes to the Steam digital counters. Its Price is 128 rubles on the territory of Russia and 2.99 US dollars in the whole CIS. The game contains Steam cards and achievements. Since the launch of The Braves & Bows comes the idea that it will be something on the likeness of a shooter, with elements of platforming. But, playing at least a little bit in the Braves & Bows immediately realize that this is no shooter with elements of platforming, it's still platformer with a boevkoj, which is not like any shooter. But you know, played very nicely, although looking at the trailers I did not think that the game will be so good. So, we will play for the Little Archer, who went to the castle count, who stole the king's daughter with hundreds of mercenaries who died during the storm. When The mercenaries went to the castle they noticed dozens of monsters that crave blood. After the rest of the mercenaries have been the protagonist of our hero, our brave Archer decides to find the princess and it becomes his personal motive. Let's go to the gameplay: before us is the goal to get to the princess. On our way will meet the lava lakes, narrow corridors of the castle and cloud of enemies. Each Enemy has its own sprite attack, thus forcing the player to adjust their game for each type of enemy. Our hero has a bow, by which we will kill those very enemies. Arrows can be ignited to solve puzzles or for the firing enemy, if you have a lava lake. Also in our equipment there are daggers, which can be thrown into enemies, if the arrows run out. Yes, the arrows in the Braves & Bows are not infinite, which adds a special complexity to the game, because it makes you think how to use each arrow. But arrows can always be found in chests, or buy from a merchant who sells health potions, daggers and just those arrows. The Game is not as dynamic as it may seem, because the protagonist is still stretched the string of his bow, while the arrow flies-you can kill. It is necessary to Play excessively carefully, because chekpointi raskiddana not very much and densely. To reach the next checkpoint may take 5-10 minutes, and with the local dynamics, believe me, these 5-10 minutes-long. The Whole world is painted in detail and it adds a special pumped atmosphere in the passage of the game. The Character seems to be cute, but the whole world is so gloomy that the protagonist can not alone change all the mood in the game. Verdict: Really Good, beautiful platformer-Metrodvania from domestic developers for a paltry price. Everything Here is good: music, gameplay, though it is not for everyone, graphic style. Rating: 7/10 The Game is very short and not too responsive control. The developer did not fulfill the Promises, so the score could not be higher than this.
