La-Mulana is one of the trickiest series to review thanks to its combination of high skill gameplay and just plain frustrating design. The last time I played it, I could not recommend it for its focus on difficult for the sake of difficult design. I also received all manner of threats and attacks from fans saying that I didn’t like hard games. With La-Mulana 2, the developers are back with another grueling run through the temple. And if you’re hoping that they have improved things…no such luck.
A few weeks ago news that made my inner-child happy was announced: That WayForward is working on a remastered edition of the classic Nintendo game: Duck Tales. My inner-child got a second dose of happiness when the game Mickey Mouse: Castle of Illusion was also revealed to have a remastered edition coming.
Duck Tales, like many children’s cartoons made the transition to video games with help from veteran studios at the time such as Capcom. But what’s interesting was when Wayforward revealed plans to make an allowance for children playing the game by having easy modes. Now the odd part was that Duck Tales and its ilk when they were released were aimed at children… or were they?
