reviewed The Legend of Tianding
Interessting Action-Plattformer with some neat ideas. Liao Tianding isn't just a fictional character but historic persona. I enjoy going back in the time of early 20th century Taiwan/Taipei with all the cultural influences from China and Japan.
The level design is quiet ok, I somehow enjoy this weapon stealing mechanic, which is mostly known by Beat-em-ups. The boss-designs are very good. But by far the best part of the game is the visual presentation. The Art work ist just nice. I also enjoy the quality of the translation (checked german and english), which isn't a given by many games from China or Taiwan.
The one thing I didn't like was running around in the City, speaking with characters I don't really care for. Felt like a waste of time until watching the credits.
It's by far not the best game ever, but a solid plattformer. Got it on lunar-new-year-sale on Steam.
