Finally Got Around To Beating Torchlight On Very Hard

Posted by mzuckerm (351 posts) -

I died a shitload of times, particularly on Ordrak, but I finally got around to it, a year or so after I initially purchased the game.  What I found interesting is that this latest playthrough rekindled my interest in the game, and I quickly followed up with a sub-5 hour run (on easy) just to compare.  I'm now planning on doing a slower, more meticulous run on normal and see if I can get down to the 100th floor of the dungeon.  I've got to hand it to the developers, they put out a terrific, inexpensive game that's got a ton of replay value. 
 

She's pretty bad-ass, right? 


I used that gun (Hannibal's Mortar) for probably the last half of the game. 


 I'm a big fan of this helmet style, too.

         
Yes, my pet 's name is Abe Lincoln. 


This battle probably took close to 20 minutes. 



Getting really close.... 


About time.

I went to Gamestop yesterday and they didn't have it.  Bummer!
 
I really, really liked the time I spent with it at a friend's house.

Great game!!! And well done. I never dared to do it with a thief, although I finished it with the mage and warrior. Next stop will be the thief. Your's is very cool. I like the outfit.

@HaltIamReptar: Get it via Steam.  They've got a great system.

Congrats of beating it on very hard! How long did it take you beat on the diffiuculty? 
Also, Abe Lincoln is a pretty good name for a pet!

@Wildfire570: Probably somewhere in the neighborhood of 15-20 hours.  I wasn't really keeping track, but some of the later levels took a long time to work through. 
 
I also love the name Abraham Lincoln for a dog.  I can imagine saying "Abraham Lincoln, stop drinking out of the toilet!"  Cracks me up every time.

I've been playing it a lot on easy and normal but just don't feel like I could put in the time and effort to play through it at a harder difficulty, it's one of those games I enjoy because you can play it quite casually. Doing what you did requires dedication, congrats!

I've spent hundreds of dollars on Steam, duder.  I was hoping to get it at Gamestop because I currently don't have a credit card.

@HaltIamReptar: I think they take PayPal too.

@mzuckerm: But PayPal is a bummer.

100 floors???wtf?  I never dreamt there were that many.  I think I'm on like the 23rd or so,lol.  Fun game agreed and only $20, and even better you can just play it for 20 minutes whenever and just pick right up again some other time.  TC, have you seen all the stuff for the next game due in the spring??  Looks to be very good :).
