I haven’t particularly seen eye-to-eye with Com2uS over the last year or so. They’re a solid developer out of South Korea that’s making quite a name for itself in the mobile space, but that name is also synonymous with shady in-app purchases. From their social games to their mobile gaming staples, there’s a good chance their games are consciously going to try bleeding a little extra cash from their users. If there’s one thing Com2uS does particularly well, though, it’s competitive multiplayer.
A couple days back, I tossed out a preview for Com2uS’ Witch Wars with, really, next to no information and a shitload of speculation. The game definitely looked like Dungeon Raid, perhaps the best (and most unique) match-3 in the App Store, but with multiplayer elements. I should have known better, though.
Com2uS just posted the above trailer for Witch Wars over on YouTube. Within seconds, you can tell the only things the game have in common are what led me to believe it was like Dungeon Raid in the first place: swords leaning to the right and a 6×6 grid.
Witch Wars looks very similar to Dungeon Raid, though in landscape mode, with different items to be matched in a 6×6 grid. However, whereas Dungeon Raid went with a minimalist presentation, Witch Wars appears bright and vivid. There’s no telling, at this point, if the game actually PLAYS like Dungeon Raid. It may be a simplified take on Puzzle Quest as well. I’m hoping it’s the path less traveled.
Last month, I went negative pretty early on Magic Tree by Com2uS. I was told by a representative that the preview I was down on was an early look, not quite ready for press, and that I should give the game a try. I agreed to give Com2uS another shot, even though they’ve disappointed me in the past.
When you first boot up the game, you are prompted for your Com2uS Hub information. After logging in (or creating an account), the game selects your character’s name and sex based off the provided information. I understand, as this could be a holdover from some strict Korean laws regarding gaming and the Internet. It could also be Com2uS looking to curtail men scamming other men with female avatars. That’s cool with me seeing as I’ve no interest in creating a female character, but I’m sure a lot of people will have an issue with this.
So, remember how I said the magic Chocolate Trees in Magic Tree by Korean developer Com2uS looked like they were made of shit? No? Well, I did.
I’m PRETTY SURE that was intentional, now. Check out the little flies and the fly icon about the tree. “Like flies on chocolate” isn’t how I remember the saying.
It’s been a while since I used feces as foreshadowing, but I’ve a review on the way.
Com2uS recently updated HOMERUN BATTLE 2 to version 1.0.6, which saw many minor improvements. Among them were a better advancement curve with new achievements, new costumes, and the ability to purchase goldball uniforms piece-by-piece, now.
Between this update and the 300 star giveaway, I was starting to feel a little bit better about HOMERUN BATTLE 2. All it takes, though, is just one problem to bring all those good feelings down.
