Hi! Just finished this awesome demo of yours and i decided to sum up some of pros and cons of this wonderfull game (or demo at least).
Cons (order is important):
-Player gets less rewarded for taking hi-risk fights. (I mean, you get less rewards becouse you fought longer. Which leads players to low level farming and not using Inifinity Arena)
-Map is almost usless. Colors and portal are ok, but important characters and important places indicator would bo much appreciated (eg. market, forge master, this monster army guy, infinit arena)
Those are important (i think) and now those a bit less
- No crouching (yea wierd, but there was a moment when I would get any chance to get past some birds )
- Some thinks dont have to be explaind. It's easy to figure how combo works ;) and you can leave it in library (just like in good old Zelda titles) or add tutorial tab in menu.
-In battle my monster stats, becouse i would calculate if that burn/poison will kill my enemy or do I have to hit him one more time. (but if you want you can leave this that way, it's a matter of disign)
- Last thing. Double jump is cool but player can avoid lots of combat becouse of it. (as well you can leave it that way)
-I had a lots of fun playing this demo
-Story that is implemented wery well suits theme of the game (Tolkien aproves if you know what i mean)
-Every battle that i encountred was always full of danger, antycipation, ups and downs. They are fresh, not like most of AAA fights (I was comparing to Dragon Quest XI , old Final Fantasy I-III and Persona 5). I won almost all fights that I encountred and felt a lot of joy (also from losing).
-It's just demo but there ale lots of monsters with uniqe skills. I thought that you don't implemented mobs with AOE attacks and BAM!!! New monster aperad with fire AOE that almost melted my party. Also there are alwas at least 3 new skills with monster (and one or two olready seen) which just blew my mind with posibilities to potential builds (I mean I thought that I might do some crazy uber badass buidls, but this probably be able in full game) . So yea, crazy tacticks!!!
-As mentiond earlier you can avoid battles. Not like in pokemons (the lame way) but you have to show your true power in avoiding enemies phisicly. (Spoiler: enemies sometimes rush on you when you try to pass them XD)
-And at the and Arena. I was about to put it in negatives of the game, but it is too well crafted. I've seen couple games (apk) that tried to do this, but they totally failed. Not like this one.
All right if you made it here. Just stop reading and try this game for yourself. I might be wrong but this game will be 10/10 after release.
P.S. Found a graphical glitch. Whenever I use Shield skill, background sprites are flashing (apear and disapper sometimes in diffrent order than should). Maybe becouse of Update method (I would try Fixed one, but I've never done 2D game in Unity). Glitch is totally repeatable.
