2020 년 XNUMX 월 출시 Skellatack was one tricky little platformer. I quite enjoyed it, to be sure, but I can safely say it’s the hardest platformer I’ve ever played.
하지만 이야기는 나를 게임에 끌어 들인 것입니다. 좋은 몬스터를 위해 플레이하고 침입하는 인간과 싸우는 아이디어는 비디오 게임에서 거의 찾아 볼 수없는 독특한 트위스트였습니다. 야만적 인 괴물이나 사악한 외계인이 인류에게 낭비를주는 게임을 찾는 것은 충분히 일반적이지만 (예를 들어 Maneater 및 Destroy All Humans) 게임에서 인간이 사악한 괴물이되고 괴물이 희생자가되는 것은 드뭅니다. 나는 이것이 궁극적으로 내게 부족하다고 느꼈던 이유와 문제를 해결할 수 있다고 생각하는 방법을 설명 할 것입니다.
In Skelattack, you play as a young skeleton living in the underworld with all sorts of monsters: zombies, skeletons, rat people (my favorites), and even devils who live in peace here. This peace is ruined when humans from above ground invade and steal the Blue Flame – a magic fire that powers the Underworld. Humans need it so they can become immortal. Our plucky skeleton and his talking bat sidekick set off to bring back the Blue Flame to save the Underworld. In the end, you must fight Serenity, the human warrior princess who happens to be your character’s sister from when your skeleton was alive. After defeating her but sparing her life, our hero retrieves the Blue Flame and “peace” is brokered between the humans and the monsters.
Only one problem. This peace is not actually a good deal for both sides. While the monster’s victory is complete and they are allowed to live forever, the humans get nothing and are still dying off of old age. The monsters don’t offer to share the Blue Flame with the humans so everyone can live forever. This makes me emphasize the humans much more than the monsters. To those who say that immortality is unnatural, I’ll point you to the fact that this is a world with sentient mice and kind undead wizards.
It’s disappointing that the ending is so one-sided, but the developers could fix this in a sequel. Imagine a sequel where you could play for Serenity, who is still searching for a way to save her people from death. Perhaps she can team up with her skeleton brother as they go on a quest to find a different way for humans to be immortal. Maybe this time the villain could be a fanatic devil or some other monster who believes humans shouldn’t have eternal life because it would be unnatural. I know I’m probably just daydreaming, but I would definitely buy that game. I’d even be willing to back it on Kickstarter if the devs announced that they were making that game.
하지만 그때까지 나는 Skelattack의 결말에 실망했고, 그것이 내가 모든 일에도 불구하고이 영화에서 인간 편에서는 이유입니다.
