If youre bored playing AAA games, Bastion is a must try.
Bastion is a beat em up platformer action game. The story takes place at Caelondia, fictional world left in ruins and swarming with monsters after destruction event called “The Calamity”. You played as the kid, white haired buffed teenagers who came to save Caelondia. Along the game, every action you take will be narrated by “The Narrator”. with sulky, manly voice. This makes you feel like youre playing games accompanied by Morgan Freeman’s Red in Shawshank redemption.
Gameplay is quite simple in general. You explore the level, beat some monsters, gain experience and beat the boss at the end. After each boss, youll get The Shard which will be used to open more Shops. This is Great thing about Bastion, Shop will open more customizatio. Theres blacksmith to upgrade your weapon, liquor shop to upgrade you status and even Shrine which give you options to harden the game in exchange for more exp per kill.
It is a well design game, visually beautiful and so much depth. The soundtrack though is something else. Until today, it is the most beautiful in game music ive ever experience. I havent played Read Dead Redemption though, as reddit forum told me the soundtrack is beautiful as well.
Bastion as the time this is written is on sale in Humble Store for only 3 bucks and previously it was priced less than 10 bucks on Steam also. If youre looking to buy a gaming piece of art , go grab Bastion.
