ToriBash - Violence Perfected
Today I want to talk about one great indie game that unrealistically hooked me. It is called Toribash and is essentially a turn-based fighting game. This game has already been casually touched on Habré, I will only expand this review a little and, perhaps, will attract the attention of those who do not know about it.
If among the readers of this post there are people who played in RagDoll Kung-Fu, then we can say that they are a bit similar. Management is the process of step-by-step assignment of a specific action for each joint. As a result, with proper dexterity, you can learn how to make very effective tricks. For starters, here's a video with the members of the OLDA clan (fully game video, not a screensaver):
Have you looked? Now welcome to kat (pictures!).
In previous Tory reviews,% usernams% pointed to the complexity of the gameplay. It’s hard to argue with this, since the first attempts mostly end in a fall in the pose of the letter ZY.
At the beginning of the game you can get training. It will show how to change the state of the joints, and teach you how to perform individual movements.
At the last stage, there will be a demonstration of several very powerful tricks that you can learn with a great desire. In general, in the settings there are quite a few beautiful replays, including with the participation of OLDA members.
There you can open a list of mods, the number of which is not amenable to even a rough estimate.
Some of them differ only in the addition of swords, others may present completely different mini-games, such as survival races. Each of the mods can be customized to your taste, changing the distance between yourself and the enemy or the time of the move.
In general, the game is designed for multi-user mode, however, to invent techniques or improve them, a single play is available in which you can hammer a doll named UKE. He does not have his own AI, but in the settings it can be turned on. Honestly, I don’t know why this script is needed, since the UKE does not act like a fighting doll, but randomly changes the state of several joints. Well, except for making unpredictability in the gameplay.
So, if you have learned a couple of tricks and burn with the desire to kick everyone's ass, welcome to multiplayer. Servers for multiplayer games are divided into official and unofficial. They differ only in the fact that on the former they give Tory-credit cards, and on the latter they do not. IMHO it is worth playing on informal after you learn to manage your ragdoll well.
The official servers are divided according to the belts received by the players. If you are a beginner and you don’t have a belt, then it’s advisable to go to the servers for Beginners, if the belt is a little higher, then to the Intermediate servers and so on. Within each “zone” group, there are several games that differ in mods. These are mainly Judo, Aikido and TwinSword. Sometimes there are others.
15 seconds are given per turn.
They play on the server in turn: the winner plays the next in order, and the rest are waiting in line. Basically, it happens from 2 to 5 people. However, following other people's fights is very interesting, so while waiting, you don’t have to nervously drum your fingers on the table, burning with impatience.
Each match can be saved so that it can be revised on an autumn rainy evening.
For each victory, 10 Tory-credit cards are credited to the account. They are needed to buy customization for your ragdoll. You can buy everything from the design for the head and joints, to the texture of the blood and trace your own limbs. The average cost of each design detail is from 10,000 and above Tory-credit cards, which hints at the donat.
In Torishop you can buy the possibility of your own design, for which you need to draw your own textures, upload it to the server and after a while it is applied to the ragdoll.
You can also look at the list of awards at Torishop and even get a userbar.
There are versions of ToriBash for Macs and Linux. I have not seen the Mac version, so I can’t say anything, but the Linux version looks much worse. It may just be unfinished, or maybe there are still some reasons.
If about personal impressions, then the game is very addictive. I came up with the first trick only a week after getting to know the game (I can’t upload the video - the computer is pretty weak). It was very funny when I learned to run, which is quite a challenge. In general, to know the game is completely almost unrealistic. Fortunately, on YouTube you can find many tutorials, but it’s much more pleasant to invent something yourself.
The game does not bother her because of her diversity. What is even more pleasant, this game is completely free, and on the servers there are quite a lot of players from Russia. In general, welcome to the game website www.toribash.com
Have a nice night!
