Endless Memories Switch NSP Free Download GAMESPACK.NET If there’s one thing that never ceases to bring a smile to my face, it’s a successful Kickstarter. Especially when that Kickstarter is for an exciting indie game thought up by a talented small team. And given that Endless Memories managed to raise over $14,000 and is developed by just two people, I think it qualifies. To add to my excitement Endless Memories is a combat-oriented Metroidvania. Given my past experiences playing the likes of Valdis Story and Hollow Knight, I was more than up for this. And even though there are some hurdles to overcome, Homunculus Games’ first release does not disappoint. Outside of the occasional platforming segment, most of the challenge in Endless Memories derives from its combat. Your choice of weapon plays a bit part in how you approach each battle. Although there are options to improve your equipment, most of the time you’re going to want to find a shiny new weapon instead. Weapon drops can be acquired in a handful of different ways. Defeated enemies can drop them. TOP/BEST ADULT VIDEO GAMES IN UNITED STATES OF AMERICA (USA)

This varies from heavy two-handed melee weapons to lighter options like bows and daggers. This allows you to fine-tune your play style for power or precision. Combat is tough and relies on you knowing both how your weapon works and what the enemy’s behavior patterns are. Although most enemies are predictable, there are a lot of them. Endless Memories can be unforgiving in this regard, as it feels like a new enemy appears every time you enter an area for the first time. Some enemies require you to parry their attacks, others you’ll need to dash through, and some are best rushed before they get their attack off. Figuring out when to do what is challenging. Expect to die over and over. Just be aware that enemies will always respawn when you leave and re-enter an area. On the bright side, this lets you farm for experience and equipment which is required for certain stages of the game. Unfortunately, it can be annoying at times since it hurts the overall feeling of progression. After all, what’s the point of killing everything when you know they’ll all be back in no time? I won’t lie, when I first began playing Endless Memories, things weren’t going great.

STORY DELVE DEEPER INTO DREAMS.

There’s no difficulty curve as such with even the earliest levels offering plenty of challenges. That’s not to say things don’t get harder down the line, but at least by then you’re all kitted out with strong equipment. Perhaps craziest of all, there’s a boss fight about half of hour in which requires a better understanding of the combat mechanics than you’ll likely possess by that point. There is a limited tutorial, but I can’t say it helps out too much. You’re told how to use several abilities and weapons right at the start but then they’re taken away from you when you enter the first real world. When you finally unlock them again for real, there are no instructions on how to use them. I suppose I’m just meant to remember what I was told several hours ago. However, while Endless Memories doesn’t do a great job of explaining itself, actually learning how to improve is fun. Even if it feels undeserved, pretty much every death is avoidable. I’d consider the harsh learning curve here akin to something like Spelunky. Theoretically, if you learn enough about the game and master its mechanics, you should be able to complete it without taking any damage. ROBOQUEST

It’ll take a very long time to get to that point, but for some, that’s the appeal. On that note, if you’re looking for something more on the relaxing side, Endless Memories is not for you. I have no idea if Homunculus Games is planning to add it in the future, but right now there’s no way to adjust the difficulty. A set difficulty isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but it does mean that some may find its steep learning curve against their favor. When I first saw Endless Memories‘ gorgeous hand-drawn art style I was convinced it was the work of a sizable team. Each sprite is beautifully drawn, and the environmental details far exceed what you may expect from a self-published indie game. And all this was single-handedly put together by co-creator Robert Roy. I can’t even begin to imagine the amount of time and effort it took for a single man to put together so many high-quality assets. The animation is certainly praiseworthy, too. I’ve been particularly impressed by how every action feels and looks surprisingly realistic. From the swinging of weapons to mantling up steep surfaces, every action feels correctly weighted.

GAMEPLAY  HACK, SLASH, LOOT.

There’s something incredibly satisfying about cleaving an enemy with a battle ax and being able to actually see the sheer force applied in the swing. Rem awakens in a strange place. After a little tutorial, you find yourself in the Laboratory of Dreams. You seem to have lost your memory and must explore the minds of dreamers to discover your part in the puzzle that is Endless Memories. As you delve into the slumbers of the dreamers it becomes apparent that Rem has a bigger part to play here. The story was a good means of exploring the dreams of other characters but it struggled to sink its teeth into me. The tale unravels slowly as you explore new levels but the dialogue between characters was poor and made it difficult for me to get invested in the story. Endless Memories is a 2D Metroidvania with all the usual trappings, plenty of weapons, each with their own play style and randomly generated stats, new items that unlock previously unreachable areas, and some challenging boss fights. Its Kickstarter page claims that it is a mix of like Castlevania: Symphony of the Night and Dead Cells, and I could certainly see this inspiration. Since Endless Memories at its core is a 2D Metroidvania then you know what you’re in for. SHOOTY FRUITY VR

You start your journey in Debbisland. The areas are extremely diverse. Across your adventure, you explore jungles, caves, haunted fortresses’ and underwater to mention a few. You never spend too much time in one area due to not being able to fully explore without your full array of abilities unlocked. Speaking of abilities, the variety here is great. I won’t spoil too many of them but you have a ground stomp to break the weak floor and a hook to reach new heights. All of these unlock previously unreachable areas and each area is filled with side areas to explore with upgrades to improve Rem’s health and other statistics. Two things initially piqued my interest in this game; combat and graphics. Combat was advertised as an ARPG with randomized loot, and after the disappointment that was Torchlight 3, I was left searching for some loot. I’m happy to say that Endless Memories knocks this out of the park. You have 3 different tools to use in combat, melee, ranged, and magic, with melee being your main form of attack. The sheer amount of options here is quite staggering. I counted 13 different kinds of melee weapons, each type playing slightly different from the others.

GRAPHICS AND AUDIO SIMPLY FANTASTIC.

Take scythes, for example, they have a special ability that is activated by dodging then quickly attacking, unleashing a spinning attack that consumes your mana. I don’t have a count for ranged weapons and magic attacks but there was plenty to have me changing out new ones pretty often. There is a parry mechanic but it was definitely the worst part of the combat so I opted to not use it often. You play as Rem, a young dreamer who escapes into the laboratory of dreams. From there you can enter other sleeper’s dreams and eventually uncover a means to escape from the laboratory itself. This fantastic premise could be a catalyst for exploring relatable characters or existential concepts. Endless Memories also innovates by injecting ARPG-style randomized loot into a set “handcrafted” world, providing a unique twist on familiar gameplay mechanics. While this game’s ambitions were great, it unfortunately went down the rabbit hole of quantity over quality. Size and scope matters, and so often when you focus more on size, you lose sight of the details. A vast gigantic world isn’t as impressive when it’s tedious to traverse through.

There are a lot of things that Endless Memories gets right, however, some of its clashing designs holds it back from being more than a passing novelty. Combat is the primary focus of Endless Memories, and from the start it feels fairly good. Hitting enemies makes a loud crunch sound, and being hit back provides the kind of feedback that makes you feel the pain. While the animations could be a bit tighter, you get a sense of control over the game’s space that makes any given moment a mostly pleasant experience. This is aided by the breadth of movement options you’re given right out of the gate. You can double jump and dash both on the ground and in the air – the kind of maneuverability that you don’t normally expect to have until you’ve completed some percentage of the Metroidvania exploration. Enemies don’t always telegraph their attacks clearly, but you’re more than capable of dashing in and dashing out of their range that you can make up for most of the game’s weaknesses in this regard. This isn’t as much of a problem with regular enemies as it is with the bosses.

Even on normal mode I was able to walk right into almost every boss’ face and smash my attack button until they were dead, taking whatever damage they dealt to me with little worry of depleting my entire health bar. Part of my ease in this regard was due to pure luck which I’ll talk about later, but even with that taken into account I wasn’t given much incentive to use my tools in a more interesting way. When enemies are actually a threat, that threat feels slightly unfair. Some regular enemies can freeze or stun you, and rather than mixing up their attacks to make that stun an integral part of a fun pattern, they’re perfectly okay just spamming their stun attack and keeping you locked down almost indefinitely. You do potentially have counter methods that can address these problems at a range or by stunning that enemy first, but it does present a bit of a beginner’s trap. Most attacks don’t do a ton of damage to you, which conditioned me to be a bit reckless, but then suddenly I might contract the burning condition which takes off more than two thirds of my health over time.
