Horace reviews ( 5 )

smansell, Sep 16, 2019

The best game I've played in a long time. A really touching story line with excellent characterisation wrapped around a tricky platformer with excellent puzzles. Lots (and I mean lots) of retro gaming and "80's life" references, and a massive array of mini games that playfully poke fun at the original arcade classics. Excellent graphics and soundtrack to boot - combined with soooo many great jokes - delivered perfectly by the monotonic hero. Can't recommend highly enough - an amazing achievement for a solo developer (with help from friends, I believe)

I'm not a big fan of all of these perfect 10 scores on Metacritic. It really is ridiculous. A 10 score should be reserved for a really great game. However, this is the very imperfect review system that we have to work with, and I don't want to penalize a great game just because I want to be realistic, when it's clear that the overwhelming majority of reviewers are not. Horace is something special. It has done something very different within the platforming genre. It's telling that I like this game so much when platforming games are one of my least favorite types of games. As a whole, I also do not like Indie games very much. There's just too much garbage being pumped out, and it has become trendy to call terrible Indie games "amazing", and refer to their crude graphics as "gorgeous pixel art.". That having been said, Horace is definitely an exception, so I will break my rule about 10 scores to give it the credit it deserves. For an indie game that has low tech graphics, Horace does it really well. The graphics are colorful, varied, and overall, are probably more deserving of the description "gorgeous pixel art" than any other "pixel art" game that I can think of. My only grievance with the graphics is that when you are in close up scenes the graphics are so crude they almost hurt your eyes. This applies to all games with crude graphics, not just Horace. Unlike most other games with this type of graphics, when you're not close up, which, thankfully, is most of the time, the graphics are charming, and also unlike most games of this type, the graphics vary so that you really can't wait to see what the next set of screens will look like. The way Horace intertwines story and cut scenes in between the platforming levels, and even within the levels, is refreshing to say the least, and is very well done. It's virtually assured that what Horace has done in this genre will be copied in future platforming games, and may well help platforming games increase in popularity. The controls are not part of what makes Horace special. Fortunately, they are good enough that they don't really hurt the game. In more traditional platforming games that are so dependent on outstanding controls, it would be much more of a factor. This game isn't nonstop movement like most platformers. It's more slow paced and creative which I really like. When I first started playing the game in the instructional levels I was not too impressed with the controls. Fortunately, this is an Indie game that let's you remap the control configuration. If I had not been able to do so that might have killed the game for me before I even got started. So definitely wait until past the very beginning before forming an opinion. In addition to the "gorgeous pixel art", the music is great, and fits the game perfectly. It's not only good music but is constantly changing and altering the mood, which is a huge plus. Music is another aspect of Indie games that I think is very overrated. People just love to rave about music that doesn't seem to be that impressive at all. In this game it really is great. Finally, this game has so many fun references, and tips of the hat to other games. I think I will play again just to see if I can recognize all of them because there are a lot of them, and they sometimes pass very quickly. Maybe I'm wrong, but this game does not seem to be getting the recognition and accolades that it deserves. I hope this has been a successful venture for the publisher and or developer because it would be bad for gaming if a gem ( another overused word!) of a game like this wasn't successful. Hopefully it will generate more buzz now that it is free on Epic Games. Sadly, I would never have known about it, let alone bought the game, if I had not looked at it as a free game choice on Epic Games.

The art, music, and story are really what makes this game good. The actual gameplay however is primarily all platform jumping that throws rotation into the mix and it was ... a lot. If you have ever played Meatboy you will feel right at home. Checkpoints are few and far between and you will be ready to pull out your hair getting close to the end of a room or boss only to get zapped by an electric fence, fire, saw, or any of the other many killers. On most sections if you eat it too many times you can get up to two shields to help you get through it, but most bosses it's one and done then starting it over again. It wasn't terrible at first, but the difficulty ramps up quick and I didn't enjoy it as much and pushed myself to finish it. The moon base trial almost broke me but I eventually got through. In context it's about a 12 hour game and my death count was around 1100. Not fun when your constantly dying. If you enjoy brutal, precise jumping platforms then this was made for you. The story and cutscenes are the saving grace, but you can watch those on online if you would rather not bother jumping and save some sanity. Difficulty aside, this game is not for kids despite being under the platform genre. It gets savage towards the end with executions, shootouts, and a bloody beating.

The game is surely very original and varied, both story and gameplay-wise. Too bad the same can't be said for the soundtrack, which is mainly comprised of pieces of classical music in few seconds loops, that while charming at first, will get really annoying really fast. Add some frustrating gameplay sections (dreadful swimming), unskippable cutscenes and, in my opinion, the excessive length, and what you get is a game whose goods outweigh the bads, but not by much.

В игре есть куча механик, ни одна из которых не доведена до идеала. В каждом аспекте игры есть мелкие недочеты, которые портят игровой опыт. Плюс к этому на уровне алисы словил баг, который не позволяет мне ни пройти дальше, не вернуться назад по сюжету. Потратил на игру 7 часов, и в итоге получил только гору раздражения. Причем раздражение это асболютно не похоже на раздражение от соул игр. Если в соулс играх ты умираешь и фейлишь только из-за своего скилла, то тут ты фейлишь из-за кривизны механик и багов. Не тратьте время на игру, господа.
