The Fall may have been released a few weeks ago but it clearly deserved some coverage on Gamersyde. Taking its inspiration from the old sci-fi 2D games of yore (like Flashback and Another World/Out of this World), the first title of Canadian developer Over The Moon is a subtle mix of action, adventure and puzzles. What's most striking about The Fall is that it plays like a classic 2D game but it also feels a lot like a point and click. Great writing, well-crafted puzzles and excellent sound design are also part of the package deal, making Over The Moon's first project worth your time and money. A beautiful tribute to the games of the eighties and nineties that you shouldn't miss if you're a fan of the genre. Enjoy it now and look forward to their second game!
... I can't even think of what they want. Maybe expecting CoH or AoE or even a Starcraft like game, but it's not even trying to be a strategy game like that. (5 Hours ago)
@rayy: I think so. If I hit on something later in the game that I haven't gotten to yet I'll let you know, but so far I don't see any control flaws. (5 Hours ago)
If you took the sword work and handling from Witcher and put it in Skyrim, you have the ultimate game in that genre. Mods made Skyrim in my opinion; vanilla was stunted outside of stealth backstabbery (5 Hours ago)
@GriftGFX: Both games in my eyes had spotty combat. I played W3 for its story and life. As for Skyrim, the vanilla version of the game felt bland without the mods. (7 Hours ago)
And I think the gameplay that is there is pretty janky and pretty shallow. (7 Hours ago)
I get that you think Skyrim is crap, but The Witcher 3 aint "a good version of Skyrim" because they have totally different goals. TW3 doesn't even attempt half the systems that Skyrim does. (7 Hours ago)
@KORNdog: Nah, that's *really* not all there is to it. You're comparing a broken apple with a poorly designed orange. (8 Hours ago)
