How we rate the games?
A new 2D video game appeared, directly from Ubisoft framework and we are eager to have a look at the nice graphics. At first look the game might seem just another 2D game, but it turns out to be an interesting idea. When you first start playing Child of Light you will find yourself playing as little girl.
During the first chapter, you are going to learn the basics, just as a little tutorial to help you find yourself around the game. Approaching the first enemy will eventually send you to a different gameplay, from platform to a turn based game. A menu will pop up each turn and your choice will impact life or death in some situations. There is also a light following you all the time since the beginning and you can use it during fights to slow down the enemy attacks. Certain enemies are weaker against some attributes, making you deal more damage than usual. Some others are stronger, making you deal less damage. During your journey you will meet new characters and they will be added into your party.
Adding new characters to the party, will allow you to select them during the turn based game, not during the platform. Certain members are extremely useful especially against some bosses because of their special abilities. When you defeat enemies or when you open treasures, you will find oculi, power ups or potions. You can use these for your party, but some members of your party might already have potions as abilities. For example healing potion is not needed, since one of your party members has the healing power. The oculi which was mentioned before, is a gem which can be combined to create an even more powerful gem.
There are different oculis and you can mix them. Brilliant oculis are the best, but as an effect, it depends what you value the most. You can assign your main character the best oculis you have, or assign them to other characters. Onyx and Diamonds are the best oculis you will find, but there is also one last type of oculi and we are not going to reveal that so easily. When you defeat the game you can restart it as new game+ and earn even more oculis, since you will start the game with all your oculis and abilities. The characters also level up and you earn skill points. By using those skill points, you will have a better character and more powerful skills. Starting the New Game+ will also make you go on collecting even more skill points.
Enemies become more powerful as you progress further in the game. Depending on the difficulty you choose and if you are starting a new game, the exact same enemies are going to be much more powerful, but they will give you more experience, so you can level up easier and become more powerful. It is very interesting to know the fact that some enemies fly, or cannot be reached. It turns out that the main character, Aurora, can fly later in the game so you don't have to worry at first about this. Also there might be cases that you might want to reach someone which is impossible for the moment, so you just have to progress further. Fortunately, the enemies don't become too repetitive since you will face different enemies in different areas.
Overall the game seems very colorful with some nice graphics, but the gameplay doesn't seem to be so nice. There should be more possibilities in the game and you will complete the game very easily. It takes 2-3 days to complete it and you won't be making a great deal out of it, except of the nice graphics.
