[app]Castle of Magic FREE[/app]
Came on just to post this. Glad they came out with one!
I will have to try this one now.
One level?! come on, at least give us 2 or 3!
Just beat the full game, man its great!
This is great, thanks for the new. pretty much took castle off my radar once there was news of fps stutter, controls, and lack of replayablility. Now the developer is making me pick it up and i might buy it.
The point of a lite is to try and get people to buy your game, not give away too much =] Besides, the levels in this game are fairly long so one will allow the player to get the jist of things.
its really a little strange that game with only on level. but your explanation reasonable & acceptable. you also move off my confusion
I like it, makes me want to get the full version and it really looks like the best platform game available up to now.
I love the character and how he switches from one costume to the next. Its pure classic fun with beautiful graphics.
I've never been fond of the Dpad and action buttons on the screen. Gameloft has adopted this on their apps and it in effect keeps me away from them outside of their lite versions.
Is it just me or has the function of tilting your iPhone left or right is the preferred option to move your character forward or backwards? It's simply less clutter on the screen and if the devs do a great job with the sensitivity its seamless.
if you like the Dpad, it's simply a question if you like the theme.
I actually really like this game, I might buy it.
I dont generally like the clutter of a dpad and buttons on screen but thats the limitations of the device there, I wouldn't prefer tilt movement in this situation I dont wanna look at the screen sideways afterall in a platform game. Bounce On does this but at least thats kinda the point in that game.
I prefer buttons/Dpad to be a bit less transparent or invisible altogether or even proximity touch in certain areas triggers button a or b and so on. I've seen it work well in other games. Everyone has their own preferences though, but the more options the better I say.
Don't really like the controls in this game, the graphics are nice though. It seems to stutter a bit on my Touch though. Good thing I played the free version first, I saved my money.
Hmm I didn't get any stutter on my 2g touch. I would take a dpad over tilt controls any day of the week. No the controls aren't perfect, but worked fine for me and wasn't a problem. Although worms is making this a tough choice for me. I'm worried about the replayablility and difficulty. Obviously the first level is easy but does it get noticibly harder?
Well, good thing I didn't jump the shark and bought the full version as I was hesitant about it anyways. Now I can try it out first hand. Been waiting for a good platformer for the iDevice too.
The framerate is stuttering on my iPhone 3G and the game is just alright in my opinion. I much prefer them porting Hero of Sparta or Prince of Persia as 2D platformer (like for other mobiles) to the AppStore. I miss some old-school platformer and this one feels like a cheap Mario - wannabe.
tried it... pretty good,
put in my 99 cents waiting list.... haha
Gameloft rocks 99 99 99 99 99 99
like this game so much, surely to get it! but just wonder any updates?
Well it is gameloft, they normally don't add to their games once released. Usually what you see is what you get. I will be getting this game but I have to wait a little while. They will surely decrease the price of the full game some point in the future.
In situations where there are tricky jumps or narrow platforms, I'm sure no one will wish there was a tilt-control scheme. After all pressing a button is always more accurate than tilting; you might tilt slightly more and end up falling off a cliff.
The graphics are just stunning. But I wonder if they just couldn't polish the level design around the control flaws. I mean they certainly do know the problems with their dped. So why are there still plenty of places you can just get stuck so easily.
Nevertheless much fun and not to hard.
I'm keen on a sequel...
