Tristoy from Headup Games is a wonderful Hack & Slay Advanture Co-op Indie Games, and definitely worth a Look! But it's best to take a look at it in my Little Preview Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_uT95uWYa0M I can just recommend it for all Hack & Slay Lovers;))

To make it simple, the game is broken. Between the contextual actions that do not work, the fact of falling through a wall and the hitboxes to the picks, I can not advise anyone to lose 2H to finish the game. Yes, 2H to finish it without forcing. In the end I had a good time laughing at the bugs and absurdities of the game, but hey, it's sad anyway.

Product received for free I got the Game in a Bundle, otherwise I wouldn't have bought it. It is a pure Multiplayer Game, but visually quite demanding! I therefore cannot recommend it for People who are only teasing alone. It would have been great if there had also been a Single-player version with a NPC on the Side but I think then the Game principle would have gone fluttering, it's all about the Fact that you have to open doors to each other or whatever ...:)

Warning, Tristoy is a game that is played in two, only no, do not think that you will be able to play alone, this is not possible. Tristoy is designed to play two, it's a must. It is a game of platforms in 2, 5D taking place in a fantasy medieval world (for me, a fantasy medieval world is often a world where magic is possible (but not that)). You play a young Prince who is being dethwared by an evil sorcerer and who is trying to find out what his sister has become. In this game you will often have the choice between several ways that will bring you all for different purposes. For example, instead of saying that it is his sister, it is possible to say that it is his wife (but hey, he still has 17 years). To return to the importance of both players. In many battles, the two characters are important. Often the one hitting and then the other must bump then, this is most of the time the only way to destroy the monsters. You can play two on the same computer (just one license) or on two different machines. If you love games of cooperation, if you like platforms games and if a fantastic atmosphere is magical for you, Tristoy will please you. To read my full impressions on Tristoy. [www.graal.fr]
