Gorytale is a fast shooter with a first-person perspective. As the name suggests, the game is based on violence combined with fairy-tale elements. The player is thrown into the land of sweetness in which his madness begins. From the very beginning of the game, our focus and attention must be at a very high level, because the danger lurks at us everywhere.
Introduction, control, and rules
The game begins with a short tutorial that is supposed to teach the player the absolute basics. However, the first thing that catches the eye is the huge distance and sense of humor of the creators, which is shown in the tasks of tutorial and the words shouted from time to time by our main character. Moving in the game is intuitive and simple because it only requires a mouse and classic buttons: W, A, S, D. Player plays an unknown hero, who after death goes to his appropriate version of hell - a wonderful, charming land. The player's task is to complete the next stages of the game. However, this is not so easy, because at every level there are swarms of monsters that only wait for us to lose our vigilance for a while. These monsters seem to be harmless because they look like food and the only thing they want is to hug us and be our friends. Unfortunately, our character is their total opposite and the longer he stays near creatures, the worse he feels.
Game modes and other additions
In the game, you can distinguish between two game modes. The first of these is a story mode in which we pass the entire map to finally defeat a very strong boss. The second is the arena mode, where our goal is to kill as many enemies as possible to climb in the ranking that is available in the game. I must admit that it is not easy, because only a few days have passed since the game's release, and the results of players are very impressive already. There are a lot of monsters, so we also need weapons, depending on the situation. At the very beginning, we can only fight with our bare fists, but very soon we get more (though sometimes absurd) weapons.
After killing monsters, occasionally we can get bullets for our guns, but the most important are coins, thanks to which we can significantly upgrade all our weapons.
It must be admitted that the game has a kitschy plot and soundtrack, but surprisingly these are its greatest advantages. They allow the player to focus on the game, which is extremely dynamic and despite appearances, not so easy. In addition to the incredible number of monsters that are constantly arriving, most of them have a different range of attack and speed of movement. Also, thinking that you must pay attention only to what is around you, you are wrong, because some monsters can fly, so we constantly have to watch not only what is in front of us, but also over us. Another advantage is the fact that the game works extremely smoothly, so you can enjoy it even on a weak computer. A huge drawback of the game is a very small number of levels, but it can be noted that the creators listen to players and often release updates that improve overall gameplay. The game is available on the Steam platform from July 19, so do not wait because it's worth it!
