Early Access Review
I dind´t play too much, but from what I played, 8BitMMO is a trying hard to be nerdy, I mean, hipster dungeon, and I am like "ha, wait, do we still make hipsters jokes?"
Clunky, a basic grinding MMO, go kill this, do that, so boring and repetitive, the combat sucks, press SpcBar to attack, but the range of the sword is bad, and it´s pure random, 50% of the times that you strike at point blank range, you miss.
Building is a mess, the perspective doens´t help, and the UI is all over the place, and yes, you can build cool stuff.
You wake up in the Dev home, for real like, haha, a unfriendly first meeting, but I think the game is just a big parody, and it doens´t have a plot.
WTF? Seriously? I mean, everything is so pricey, and you gain so little Gold, but no fear, you the wonderful overpowered microtransations, I mean, in Brazil, where I live, R$(Real, Brazil´s money) or BRL, it costs the double of the dollar, so that pricey ultra duper whatever gold pack costs here 400 R$!(200 U$D!)
It sucks. it ins´t 8 bit btw, it´s boring and bland.
Good Concept, Bad Execution. And I understand for example the aesthetic being crap(Cuz is retro and intentional),
but it doens´t excuse an poor and obnoxious title like this.
