Set in old Europe, the player takes on the role of the seductive
princess Allura, who after being framed for her father's murder,
is forced to flee the castle to take refuge from those that
are out to kill her. Allura, along with her maid Rachel, escape
to the Black Forest, where an evil spell from the devil transforms
Allura into a trap master, an evil temptress that uses deadly
traps to avenge her enemies. Returning to the castle with
the devil as her guide and on a mission of vengeance, Allura
uses her wicked strategy and skill to set up gruesome medieval
traps to lure her enemies in and then destroy them...
or Kagero 2: Dark Illusion as it's also known, is a
bit of an odd game to pin down. While the basic premise is
fun - set up traps to kill your enemies - it starts to get
a little too repetitive a little too quickly.
play the part of a princess who has been framed for the murder
of her father, the king. Your maid, Rachel, saw everything
and knows that you are not the guilty party - although who
is going to believe a servant? As the palace send guards and
other assorted characters after you, your quest is to kill
them before they kill you, hoping that somewhere along the
line you will be able to prove your innocence.
can set a variety of traps that come in three main categories
- traps that are sprung from the air, walls or ground. These
include swinging pendulums, bombs and arrows that fly through
the air. Or you can crush your enemies against a moving wall,
or have them sucked towards a huge magnetic panel (if they
are wearing a suit of armour).
biggest moan (and it is a huge sticking point) is the fact
that you can't change the camera controls to your exact preferences
- you only get a choice of switching the horizontal or the
vertical, not both. You get a choice of two control settings,
but you can't change the horizontal and vertical control of
the camera. If you're used to inverting the left and right
control and the up and down movement, then you are going to
be reaching for the off button before too long as it's essential
in this game that you can quickly check where your enemy is
in the room.
also doesn't help that this game seems to offer little in
the way of new and exciting levels. You'll keep on setting
the same traps time and time again (because they take the
most health off your enemies) and be reluctant to move on
and try other things (or move to other rooms).
the most satisfying element is setting traps and watching
the enemy get clobbered, maybe a better game to buy would
Vs Spy. This is certainly a game I'd advise
trying before buying.
