I've been really enjoying the development of this game, and at this point as a sandbox I'd say it's definitely surpassed those that came before it. The unique behaviors of the different types of enemies is excellent, and the gameplay itself is pretty easy to balance to what you want. I did want to provide a few points of feedback, as per A5P5:
I've been following this game since the first version, since I was a fan of the original. At first I dismissed it as a clunky, broken, and unnecessary remake. A lot of time and updates later though, this game has turned into something pretty great. The gameplay still feels awkward, but the sheer number of transformations and options make this one of the most enjoyable and replayable games on the site.
Kudos to the developer and everyone who helped with the 3d models, for providing regular updates and constantly improving the game.
Well it's HoP in 3D like dungeon crawl and it could be fun but ...
For a game based on transformation, you actually don't see the transformation happening to your character cause in 1rst person view ... It's a bit strange. The descriptions of the transformation are written in a console so small you can't really read it, and all happens so fast. To be enjoyable at least you should turn into some sort of vanity camera when you can't control your character anymore and something is happening to cause, cause right now i can't see the point to play the game.
Hope it will be fixed in future versions so i can edit this review.
Edit 24/07/2019 : The above have been mostly fixed and the author is quite reactive for bug fixing. That sounds good for the futur of this game.
Loving the extra content that's been added into this version of the classic mode. Great work and I'll be keeping an eager eye out.
It's really getting somewhere! The new rooms and map have hugely improved my immersion and enjoyment and with a full roster of monsters and players, I think the only way to go from here is to increase the ways the players can interact with the world. Right now they can only attack, or be attacked, but is there any way they can directly help one another? And any ideas for monsters fighting eachother?
Or even specific scenarios with bonus features! I can't wait to see where this goes.
