Costume Quest 2 is charming, and it makes me happy that there are still game companies out there making family-friendly and yet interesting and fun. There is a ‘but’, though. There are over fifty scenes to explore and over twenty costumes to dress up for the player. Chariot, Child of Light, and now Costume Quest 2 were all published that year – while we will get into some more serious games later on in my list, it has been really nice to play some light-hearted games over the past few days, and CQ2 is no exception. What’s the point of working out all year long if you cannot get the chance to show off some muscle? Even the costume contest seems to get bigger and better each year. It’s downright silly and charming, even for a creaky old kid like me. It’s also downright silly and charming, even for a creaky old kid like me. It’s basically a big, fat empowerment fantasy for every kid that’s ever been purple nurpled, wedgied or spitballed. Later on it’s masked by different missions–package deliveries, speakeasy drop-offs and the suchlike–but far too often it’s a case of locating a house with a light on, knocking on the door and waiting for a surprise attack.
There’s the unnerving Red Light, Green Light robot girl; pastel-candy-colored stairways in the building where the doomed contestants live; and, of course, the striking costumes: red for most of the guards, green for the contestants, and an impressive Darth Vader-like dark metal look for the mysterious Front Man. But the most striking transformation has been among the fans. This is yet another game that I’m excited to play with my kids in the next couple of years. This thrilling action-adventure game puts players in the shoes of Aloy as she attempted to traverse a futuristic dystopian Colorado. Being able to traverse time also means that Costume Quest 2 can present some dramatic shifts in location, all with the same pleasurably creepy feel. Judicious use of Creepy Treats can finish off bosses swiftly or save a battle when you’re on the brink of defeat. The game is played from an isometric perspective, and the player can battle against enemies to earn experience points.
Battle against the dental agents out to ruin your fun and save the day once more. One futuristic mission had me double-crossing monstrous, corrupt businessman, using the hand-shakey power of Jefferson’s diplomacy ability: these are the moments which stand out. Opportunities are limited, but there are some nice touches: I planted a candy seed in one timeline, only for it to blossom into a tree in the future. Despite their numbers, combat cards aren’t terribly crucial: half the time I forgot to even use them, though there are some fun combinations to make the fights go quicker, such as playing a card that doubles the damage of an attack along with one that provides a the same hero with two attacks per round. While Costume Quest 2 also has an Xbox One version, it makes the impact of switching over from Xbox 360 to Xbox One less severe for those who own a lot of Xbox 360 games. By using one of these instead of attacking, you can add numerous effects like debuffing enemies or instantly filling your special bar. Some cards you find while exploring, others you can buy from the card dealer, Shady, along with maps of the game’s locations and costume upgrades.
The game’s locations are mostly fun to explore, though the layouts of a few are confusing and a little too labyrinthine, and I had to spend more time than I wanted wandering repeatedly through them. We understand that dressing up as the prey in a game that plays on the authority of the predatorial makes little sense. With addictive gameplay, superb mechanics, exciting characters, and smooth controls, Meltys Quest is the best game to play. Here are some of the best video game cosplay ideas of the last ten years. Meltys Quest is an Anime, Role-playing, Female Protagonist, and Single-player video game with an emphasis on JRPG elements developed and published by Remtairy for Microsoft Windows. The entire game is wholly reliant on a familiar trick-or-treating mechanic. All I could hope was that the representative of Her Majesty’s constabulary would be familiar with Cluedo and its murder weapons, and would chuckle as I explained – and let me on my way.
