Not as fun as it could be...
So I got this game based on a review of another owner of this game. Let my review paint a clearer picture. Like the first person to review this title, I too like play games with my spouse. Unfortunately this game is not fun. It’s basically a 360 shooter with Zelda-like set up. An RPG without "R". It claims to have sweet graphics based on hand drawn art, which is better than some I guess. The actual play of the game confused my wife as she tried to decipher between her character and the enemies on screen. Player 2 is just different shade of Player 1. A shade that is similar to the backgrounds. The power ups are good enough for the game, but lack variety. It seems that the creators spent more time on the hand drawn graphics than the game itself. This game would be more fun if changes were made involving the game's overall set up.
Great Arcade Game
My husband and I are always on the look out for new co-op games, as you already know these are quite rare so when we find one we get it right away. Heavenly Guardian seems really silly when you first turn it on, but let me tell you it is addicting in all ways. The graphics are very Mario like, the screen sort of just goes along with you. The monsters are very cute and easy to kill at first, but it gets harder as you go along. Your special attacks are very powerful and you must continue to collect diamonds in order to make them stronger, this is very helpful and you should choose 1 color and stick to it so you can get as strong as possible. Watch out because as soon as you are hit you lose power ups. The major drawbacks to this game are: No level ups - you stay the same throughout the game, though your power line does get longer if you collect hearts. No saves - you can set the game to 5 continues, but once they are up you must start from the beginning again. Overall, this is a great game and lots of fun, however the lack of saving power makes it frustrating for real gamers who want to see the whole game. Enjoy!!!!
