Eagle Island Review: Eagle to Please

Story 333308061

More times than not, it is very difficult to make a game that stands out in the action-platformer genre. Eagle Island tries really hard to separate itself from the pack and actually does an admirable job in their attempts.

 

Eagle Island: The Land of Lost Friends


This journey begins as you join Quill and his two owls, Koji and Ichiro, at sea when suddenly a raging storm appears and leaves the players shipwrecked on an island unknown to the lost little boy. Now if you pause right there and think back to a certain game series you may recall the similarities between this game and Link’s Awakening in their opening sequence. This island is guarded by an eagle named Amraura, a bird that loves to ruffle up some feathers by kidnapping birds from others and holding them hostage. And what does this bird do when Quill arrives? It kidnaps Ichiro, leaving Quill and his feathered companion to rescue these birds from captivity.

The game’s story is delivered primarily by characters dialogue in the form of text boxes within the hub-world and a few at the end of specific levels. There is also a bit of visual story-telling within the environment and some rather impactful instances of in-game scenes that are noteworthy. The game’s narrative is rather minimal with the focus being on the gameplay. However, the limited story does provide solid objectives, some light plot twists, and some emotionally impactful scenes that are entertaining enough to hold the story together.

 

 

Koji Physics

During my first bout of combat, I thought “poor bird must have a skull of steel”. You attack with your bird aiming in one of eight directions and releasing to shoot from your hand to hit the target. Quill’s arsenal of solo moves consists simply of running, jumping, and the occasional ledge grab – keeping to its classic 16-bit inspirations. To further build upon this mechanic there is also a combo system which is exceedingly satisfying when performed correctly. When a hit is successful your owl will return to you almost immediately allowing for you to quickly follow up with another attack. If you land four of these attacks in quick succession you will be rewarded with a heart piece, which you will most definitely need in order to overcome many of the challenging levels. Also, at the completion of a level, you receive powers and attack upgrades for your feathery friend that aide in beating down enemies. Three abilities you can earn through progression are lightning strikes, a combustion attack which explodes on contact, and a mystery attack. In some levels, there is the option to ride in a minecart throughout the stage, reminiscence of Donkey Kong Country. Which brings another level of complexity to the game. For example, as you’re on the cart, you still need to attack the enemies but you have to think 3 steps ahead and prepare your bird ahead of time to attack.

Graphically Stunning

Simply put, wow. First off, the attention to all the little details is a defining factor in how Eagle Island stands out. You can tell so much time went into making sure Eagle Island would look as stunning as possible in any angle …

The Sims 4 hosts an update full of novelties

Recently the latest extension for The Sims 4, Island Living, was released for PC. It adds a new location to the game, called Sulani, and a host of new content including, beach, sun, sirens, canoe trips, and of course new items for your Sim and construction modes. Even if Island Living is available since June 21 on PC, console players had to wait a little more because the expansion is released today on PS4 and Xbox One.

On this occasion, the consequent free update has just been deployed. The most visible thing this update brings is a graphical overhaul. The Sims 4 gets a new look with game covers and extensions, loading screens, icons of packs, and especially a new menu for the game, which becomes more beautiful and more pleasant. In addition to some new objects and bug fixes, this update adds two things, which will delight the fans of the license.

The first is the addition of the Story option in Create a Sim, which changes the way you start your game. This option, which you can easily ignore to create a Sim normally if you want, consists of a quiz of several questions, which will define the personality of your Sim. You can not change the aspirations and character traits of your Sim, which are defined by your answers. On the other hand, the aspect of your Sim remains customizable. This addition spices up the game. Your answers in addition to defining the personality of your Sim, will define his career and bonus skills. You can start your game with skills at level 2 or 3 for example, and you will also have a starting fund allocated which may be more or less important.

The Sims 4 – Create Sims with the option History

The second major addition that will thrill budding architects is the addition of a new code that will unlock no less than 1200 objects for construction mode. It’s actually only decorative objects that can be found in the environment, and the designers use them to bring the worlds of The Sims 4 to life. They will not have a function but will allow you to greatly enhance your creations, for example with stones, boats, commercial signs, or plants. EA, however, warns us in its release notes that these objects are not optimized and your Sims can pass through them. You can also find the full release notes at this address.

And as usual, to get The Sims 4 and the latest expansion Island Living at the best price, visit our comparator.

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey gets its last Fate of Atlantis DLC today

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey will see today the end of the Fate of Atlantis story arc with the launch of the third DLC of the series. Judgment of Atlantis will continue the story of Kassandra and Alexios right where the previous installment left it. If Fields of Elysium allowed you to deeper into the secrets of the First Civilization as you helped to build a rebellion against Persephone, and Torment of Hades let us pay a visit to the Underworld to give a hand to its ruler, the third episode of the series will lead us to Atlantis, where Isu and humans seem to coexist together in harmony, or so it would seem at first glance.

As a human-Isu hybrid, you are the maximum exponents of this utopia, and Poseidon has decided that you will be the new Diktates, something like a judge or a ruler, so you will have your hands full with work very fast because not everything that shines is gold in Atlantis. Quelling rebellions, settling disputes between citizens, and dealing with all kind of problems will keep you so busy that you will need to find a way to have time for your own adventuring and exploration. If you manage to unlock the potential of the Staff of Hermes, that will ultimately give you access powerful pieces od loot among other things, but there are also many other things to discover in Judgment of Atlantis.

Similar to previous DLC, new weapons will be available to you aw well as new skills. You will be able to forge three different Isu weapons that once created, can be imbued with Assassin, Hunter, or Warrior enhancements, and there is a brand new set of armor that you can collect. The Diktates armor set can trigger an invulnerability effect on you when you are hit, but to gather all of its pieces you will have to hunt and fight the Polemarchs, five of Atlantis’ most powerful Isu warriors.

The beautiful Atlantis

Whether you play as Alexios or Kassandra, Judgment of Atlantis brings the story of Atlantis to an epic end, and it’s included in the Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Season Pass.
