It's a Xen Experience
As the free to play gaming market continues to grow, the Ten Ton Hammer
staff continues to review the games that have hit players' hard drives.
One of the more recent additions to this list is Secret of the
Solstice, a top-down MMORPG that features cartoony graphics and a
fairly intuitive gameplay experience. But is it fun? Ten Ton Hammer's
Ty "Ram" Meixsell jumps into the fray with his first review and his
initial impressions of Secret of the Solstice!
world of Xen is alive with vibrant colorful animations, but as I played
I felt about 20 years younger than I actually was. In general, I had a
nice warm and fuzzy feeling as I roamed about in the third person view.
The graphics feature sprite-based characters viewed in an isometric
format and feel suited towards teens or pre-teen players. During
combat, damage numbers are splashed and scrolled making them easy to
see and read, while the spell animations are bright, colorful and
enjoyable to watch.
