Description

Magic was once strong in Granvallen, the miraculous world of floating continents. A thousand years ago, six demons lords rebelled against the benevolent twin goddesses Aplyes and Espina. Thus the Great Sorcery War began, in which humans fought valiantly against demons. Tiara, the Priestess Princess of the Holy Kingdom of Valence, and the Crusader Paradys managed to defeat the demons, but the force of magic that penetrated Granvallen began to fade as a result.

Five hundred years later, a mysterious masked man enters the peaceful village of Puck on the continent of Arshes. Two fourteen-year-old children, the girl Pipiro and the boy Pokkle, witness how he enters the village temple, murders a guard, and steals six Goddess statues, the village's biggest treasure. The kids decide to leave Puck, track down the stranger, bring him to justice, and perhaps gain fame and fortune in the process.

Zwei!! is an action role-playing game with bright, cartoon-like 2D visuals. The player can switch between Pipiro and Pokkle at any time; when controlling one character, the other is handled by the AI. Pipiro uses magical projectiles while Pokkle fights with a drill-like close-combat weapon. Elemental and combo attacks can be used to exploit enemy weakpoints and force them to drop better items.

The player accesses individual locations from the overworld. Most of them are labyrinthine dungeons with multiple levels populated by enemies. Experience points are obtained from food dropped by enemies or found in the game world. Food items can be combined in a restaurant to create more powerful ones with a higher experience count. The player can also acquire a pet animal (a cat or a dog), who follows the protagonists, helps them collect items, and unlocks specific combo attacks.

未被发掘的真钻

The Good
画风非常可爱(新海诚负责人设),游戏剧情很连贯完整,各单元的迷宫非常丰富。难度适中,对于我这样的操作苦手也挺简单。「吃食物来升级」的设定非常新颖而且有趣。

The Bad
迷宫探索作为游戏的主体部分稍显繁琐,每张地图都有好几层、每层区域众多,时间久了感觉有些审美疲劳。没有跳关设计,游戏中后期再去回顾初期迷宫会变得有些无趣。 「吃食物来升级」的设定严重受到「食物只能从怪物身上获得」的限制,如果可以自行烹饪/制作食物会变得更加有趣。

The Bottom Line
给我留下非常深刻印象的故事,角色塑造和故事叙述非常成功。2D画风非常精致而且资源开销很小,但战斗画面依旧华丽。第一次开始注意到游戏的制作公司falcom。
