Blackmoor 2: The Traitor King is an interesting sequel of the first dynamic action-platform game with elements of a fighting game for Switch from Four Fats studio, in which you will fight with the dead who captured villages and cities. The game received a familiar design of locations and graphics in a cartoon style, modest animation and good sound.
The meaning of the gameplay is practically no different from its predecessor and consists in clearing locations from all evil. First you need to decide on the protagonist. Immediately after the start of the game, the choice will be small, but it will allow you to adopt either a sword or a club. In addition, there are other differences in the skills of the protagonists, but at the initial stage this does not play a special role. Over time, you will gain access to other heroes and believe me, the need for this will also appear.
The first antagonists will be green goblins. Some of them attack from the front, others from the back. And not all enemies will come at you with close combat. Very soon you will meet archers, barrel throwers and other dangerous junk, so you will have to get closer as the enemy does not want this. A little later, skeletons, flying monsters, incomprehensible ticks, attached to the protagonist and other representatives of the afterlife will come after you. Of course, you will have to deal with all of them, otherwise you will deal with the knight.
It is also worth noting that the gameplay is divided into separate levels, and at the end of each of them a bossfight awaits. Between battles, you can look into a kind of forge in order to improve your heroes in four distinct skilltrees and neglecting those upgrades is undesirable. The controls are quite tight for a game that was once a mobile game, with buttons mapped for jumping, attacking and the left joystick to move around.
Whenever you kill a monster, several coins will appear, and defeating the boss will grant you a small fortune. In addition, you can pick up food on the way that restores your health. In general, the game turned out to be quite interesting and even quite fun. Blackmoor 2 joins the Switch its line-up of beat’em-up action games and is one of the more fun games to pick up and enjoy with a friend.
Blackmoor 2 is an engaging and fun action platformer to start of your new year.
