After spending a bit of time in early access, City of Brass is now available and it offers a first person roguelike experience in a colorful Arabian Nights setting. With many enemies to defeat with your whip and sword and traps to avoid (or use against your foes), you'll need a bit of time to beat the 12 procedurally-generated levels before the time is up. Gameplay modifiers allow to make the game easier or harder depending on what you're looking for, but you'll have to unlock them first. One of them makes it possible to deactivate the time limit to complete the level, which can be convenient to train and get better. The game is pretty nice, though not as fluid as we'd hope in terms of gameplay when played with a gamepad. The concept is obviously a bit repetitive, but the sword and whip combat is fun despite a few hit detection issues.

Thanks for the videos and a reminder it left early access.

The reviews are very positive on Steam (96% Positive). Just a few quick questions:

Is there enough platforming with the fighting - a percentage guess will suffice?

Does platforming feel good/smooth to execute?

Platforming is pretty limited actually and traversal is not as smooth as I'd like it to be compared to games that do it well.

Thanks for the reply.

That's disappointing then, I was looking forward to a balanced mix between the two. Something like a Prince of Persia, but in first person. Gonna hold off on it for a year or so and hopefully the developers add more platforming with updates and/or expansions.

    Sdarts I loved this game, you can play with different characters, each with their own abilities. You had a dash, that was basically like flying - Really cool mechanic. Squaresoft at its best. (1 Week ago)

    Sdarts Found the game I mentioned - never thought to look for it till now. The name is "Soukaigi": [url] Seeing some comments of people who looked for it for 10 years. Crazy! (1 Week ago)

    Sdarts But got to a place where I couldn't progress further, because I didn't understand Japanese - before 2000, I wanna say. Really liked it and still remember it randomly sometimes. (1 Week ago)

    Sdarts And then later their American versions. There was this Japanese game only released in Japan, I think it was from Squaresoft, the game was quite cool and I went very far in it. (1 Week ago)

  • Sdarts

    Sdarts @nostradamus: Yes, PSX, N64 & Sega Saturn as well. Those days, I played a lot of imported games. I believe I played Final Fantasy 8 around 6 months before the US release. Tenchu 1 & 2 in Japanese. (1 Week ago)
