The Cave to iOS?

#1 Posted by sumjugei (66 posts) -

So they just announced The Cave for iOS. It seems most people like the idea of The Cave more than they actually enjoy the mechanics--especially on successive play-throughs.

I tried to give it a play through with a buddy, we had to stop because someone was always waiting for the other to catch the third character up.

So what will iOS bring? Multiplayer on different screens? A follow button?

Will The Cave for iOS, like Diablo 3 for Consoles, be the version we wish had shipped in the first place? Have initial releases become glorified betas?

"The Cave on iOS doesn't have virtual analog sticks or buttons, but allows the player to tap and drag characters around the map, and choose characters with a poke on their respective icons along the bottom of the screen, the hands-on report notes."

Sure, that is what they are doing. I am more interested in speculating about weather it will improve the gameplay and how some recent ports seem to achieve the promise the originals failed to muster.

I enjoyed my 2 playthroughs of the game because the character levels were awesome, but they should have made it 9 characters instead of 7. No fucking way am I trudging through the game with 2 characters I've already played.

I just did a second run today and it was still pretty fun. Once you know how to run levels you can actually beat the game insanely quickly.

@naru_joe93and @demoskinos: did you play alone?

I am beginning to think that playing with just one other person is the worst way to play. You either need to go it alone, or with two friends....

@sumjugei: i played by myself. Like I said, first 2 playthroughs were great. I just didnt want to go for a third because it would have become crazy repetitive. I might go back to it one of these days

@sumjugei: I went alone. Which was fun but as already said two runs through is about the tipping point for fun on this thing. Anyone who gets all the trophies are nuts.
