Review: Flame Protector (Nintendo Switch)
Flame Keeper is an motion/journey recreation that takes gamers on a journey by means of a darkish, sinister world and lets them management the facility of FIRE! Take management of a chunk of coal named Ignis. He’s the guardian of the Everlasting Flame of Orbis. The story begins with the enemies descending into the land of Orbis and stealing the Everlasting Flame. As soon as they’ve simply lit the everlasting flame to embers, they roam round and wreak havoc on the remaining creatures of Orbis. It is Ignis’ job to revive the fireplace to its former glory and “smoke” the dangerous guys!
Flame Keeper is straightforward to be taught. The left joystick is used to maneuver Ignis and the best joystick is used for aiming and firing. Ignis is provided with a common sprint capability and a protect capability, in addition to a wide range of talents that gamers can use to destroy enemies. Attacking enemies along with your particular talents lowers your stamina, however regenerates over time. You even have a well being bar. Usually, you do not have to fret an excessive amount of about this as enemies drop loads of well being after defeating them. Nonetheless, your well being bar can also be used to rekindle the assorted lanterns and fireplace pits round Orbis.
To ignite the fireplace pits in every space, you’ll need to gather the coals/embers scattered throughout the terrain. Yow will discover them shaking timber, transferring objects, or defeating enemies. When you gather quantity you’ll add them to the fireplace and after getting absolutely regenerated you possibly can transfer on to the subsequent space. I solely needed to go searching for embers a number of instances to finish a degree, however discovering them was by no means a giant deal. Enemies respawn, so the sport offers you what you want.
The quick paced fight system is actually enjoyable. It feels nice to run by means of the degrees and blow by means of the dangerous guys. However there are challenges and obstacles that can take a look at your expertise and persistence. Enemies respawn as talked about above and generally the battle will be repetitive. Newbie ranges are fairly simple. However if you go far sufficient, the issue will increase barely. There are additionally bosses it’s a must to defeat. These supply a welcome selection in relation to gameplay and fight.
Between ranges, you possibly can go to the central space, a small village the place you may get new talents and upgrades. Right here you’ll have entry to your ability tree. You need to use any sources you gather throughout your travels to improve Ignis as you see match. Talents vary from stronger bodily assaults to primary spells. Sources are acorns, mushrooms, seeds, and so forth. These are discovered when defeating enemies or exploring a degree.
Earth has a darker colour palette. Nonetheless, a lot of the enemies distinction with the intense and darkish backgrounds. There are various eye-catching creatures lurking round. Aesthetics and quick cutscenes have been good. When you’re within the temper for Halloweentown 24/7, Orbis is for you. I might have preferred a deeper story although. I admire the dearth of dialogue and with the ability to get straight to the purpose, however I at all times really feel removed from a recreation once I cannot actually get to know the characters or their backstories.
Total, Flame Keeper is a enjoyable, action-packed recreation. It is a matter of how a lot motion you possibly can take earlier than you are feeling “burned out” (I am fairly good at these fiery phrase video games). The gameplay is repetitive and never a lot to stimulate you visually, however operating round and kicking round is satisfying. When you’re searching for a fast-paced, combat-based recreation, you will positively wish to try Flame Keeper.
