Cavemen Tales may very well be a building and administration simulation to win over those that would possibly in any other case overlook the style. Does that opening line sound acquainted? Should you’ve learn my assessment of Country Tales, it ought to. Cavemen Tales is kind of a reskin of that title.
I suspected as a lot from merely trying on the screenshots and studying the outline on Nintendo’s game page. Which is why it sat within the assessment queue for some time; I didn’t really feel like taking part in the identical recreation one month later. However right here I’m, battling how to not plagiarize myself.
Look, I believed Nation Tales was a reasonably good recreation. So it ought to include little shock that I really feel (in lots of situations) related about Cavemen Tales, or Caveman Tales, because it’s spelled on the Change eShop. Nevertheless it really is, in impact, the identical recreation. The construction is sort of an identical. The format and your duties will trigger déjà vu. Even the story hits acquainted notes.
Frankly, the story was the one factor with the potential to raise this recreation. You’re a caveman dwelling above the forest. I suppose Forest Man doesn’t have the identical ring? In contrast to the inventory characters (feral, shaggy, slow-witted, uncultivated savages grunting like Tim “The Device Man” Taylor), these “peculiar” characters are fairly articulate. However even with a refreshing take, I discovered the Nation Tales characters had been higher. I cared about them extra.
The story right here can be very underutilized so far as the visuals go. The model isn’t all that completely different from its predecessor. The builders critically missed a possibility to throw in giant numbers of dinosaurs to make Cavemen Tales stand out. It’s an actual bummer, as dinos can carry up most video games.
So that you’re left with an all too acquainted 40 degree journey, with the identical management quirks. Cavemen Tales continues to be semi-addictive and has some good music. However the feeling of “been there, achieved that” is as actual as might be.
Cavemen Tales isn’t nearly as good as its predecessor—the theme’s weaker, and the characters are much less interesting. Largely, being an premature reskin, it simply can’t have the identical affect that Nation Tales had. There’s a minimum of one different recreation within the ol’ Tales sequence (Kingdom Tales). Will it even be coming to the Nintendo Change? If that’s the case, I’m going to attempt exhausting to get a recent reviewer. I’ve had my fill of Tales video games for some time.
