Your frame of reference to Arthurian legends is traditional, such as classic novels and movies or comics, e.g. Monty Python and Holy GrailThere is no doubt that you have been exposed in one form or another to the iconic story of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table.
However, Arthur’s story has been told many times over the years, prompting developer Room-C Games to think differently about it. How could they pay homage to a favorite science when it also had a new twist?
The result is Merlin’s hand: A tactical, rogelite RPG fusing element of sci-fi and horror with Arthurian legend.
Our story begins in the years following Arthur’s death. An apocalyptic event, known as the catastrophe, threatens to destroy the universe, as each world is blocked by the rampant corruption of evil to extinguish the last sun.
After years of imprisonment, Marilyn is weak and unable to intervene directly, but maintains influence in the mortal world, looking for those who will succeed where Arthur failed. The rest is up to you. Hire a team of heroes and guide them on a perilous journey to take the Grail from Albion to Jerusalem and save the Multiverse from falling.
Sounds simple enough, doesn’t it? I thought so too at first, but then my first few runs were quickly and unexpectedly deleted. These enemies say “No!” Says much more barbaric than any knights.
However, it was here that I was able to really appreciate the game. Yes, it can sometimes be a punitive experience, but the game rewards players who learn from their mistakes and adapt to their tactics. If rushing the enemy leads to a brutal defeat in an intimate battle, you will definitely try a wide range attack first next time!
I appreciate that Merlin’s hand Offers various difficulty options, allowing you to play the game at your own pace. “Stories” is a great place to start for newcomers to strategic RPGs and want a more casual experience. For those experienced in the technique, the difficulty level up to Hard Mode ++ increases significantly. Have fun with that!
Whether you’re a hardcore player or a newcomer to the genre, Merlin’s hand Provides a well-crafted story and a satisfying adventure. Are you ready to hold the grail and save the multiverse?
