Deception IV: The Nightmare Princess Honest Game Review
The game starts you off with a much-needed tutorial, which you can skip if you know how to play these games. This will teach you the basics of traps, environmental hazards, combos and enemy types. You then learn that these “witches” are being hunted for the Holy verses they have. The humans think they are witches but they are actually daemons. You basically lure them into traps and beat them back over and over again. The story itself isn’t great, but it gets the job done.
Where the real fun comes in is the combos. There is nothing more satisfying in this game then to get a massive combo and kill a difficult enemy in one shot. It’s great set a bear trap, into a swinging axe, into a pumpkin head, into a wall push and finally into a cannon to capture an enemy. The story mode doesn’t let you use all the traps that are in the game, but is a good way to get a basic combo flow going. It’s just good fun to lure an enemy into a super huge combo, every time I did it I would grin.
Now story mode isn’t really where the game shines. There is a mode called Cross-quest where you can make you own maps and download other player maps. I’m not really big into level creators but this one wasn’t that hard to set up. I had a great time playing other high rated levels though. I’ll admit that some were crap, but you can find some really challenging levels here. You can also select your own traps and abilities in this mode. Here you will get to try out some of the traps that you didn’t get to use in the story mode. This can help keep the game going longer for you.
The graphics in the game are a bit dated to say the least. I almost looks like a PlayStation 3 game in 2015. The sound I can’t knock though because it is on point. Both the music and the grunts and yells of the enemies are great, and sometimes funny. Oh and for those of you interested it is subbed with no option of dub. That’s not a super big deal to me but I know some people dislike it.
Ultimately Deception IV: The Nightmare Princess is a great guilty pleasure game for strategy buffs with a sense of humor. If you like the idea of knocking someone into a cannon and launching them into a cage then this game is probably for you!
