I’m still playing through Playdigious and Shiro Games’, Evoland 2: A slight case of spacetime continuum disorder on iOS, but I wanted to share some gameplay video for those who are considering picking it up. I never finished the original game because of an annoying dungeon where I kept dying and there were no save spots anywhere in it. But I wanted to still give the sequel a chance, as I like the whole premise of it, which is to play through the history of video games.
I apologize for the sniffles, especially in the first video, but I’m still getting over a nasty cold. I also accidentally shut my iPad’s screen while I was playing in the first video, so it got cut off prematurely.
I find the game feels more comfortable on my iPhone, even though I’m sacrificing the bigger screen. The joystick just feels too clunky on my iPad.
The touch controls are still not perfect, as I sometimes miss the attack button if I’m not looking right at it. I’d prefer the area to be a bit bigger, or even to maybe half or a quarter of the screen be the attack button. But I guess that might be an issue if we get more skills later.
I’m currently stuck trying to figure out what I missed in the mountains, and as with the original game, there aren’t a ton of save spots, so I had to leave to the main map to save my progress. Hopefully I’ll be able to get past that point and update you on my thoughts of the game.
Anyway, here you go. I’m not sure if I’ll continue recording my playthrough, but if I do I’ll add the videos here.
