Although the title of today’s game may sound like a heroic line from a movie – which it probably is – you won’t need to be very brave in order to play Go Forward Bravely (by TheRock Studio). All you’ll need in order to play today’s game is skill… yes skill…
Go Forward Bravely is one nightmare of a game for anyone who doesn’t know how to multitask. Played on a floatingstage – not unlike the majority of we reviewed in 2018, 2017, 2016, you get the idea… – your mission in this game is to avoid obstacles while creating the stage ahead of you for your ball to roll on.
If this sounds almost impossible you would be totally correct! Played using no less than 4 swipe gestures which can be used to make your ball jump, rotate the entire stage your ball is on(!), and activate your shields, this game requires you to see pretty much everything all at once!! 😓
Obviously, this isn’t easy, so to make up for your lack of mental computational power, you will most likely end up focusing on one aspect of the stage and ignoring pretty much everything else in order to survive. This is where the missiles come into play.
In order to prevent our glowing ball from falling off the edge of the stage, we focused our attention on jumping and rotating the stage, ignoring pretty much everything else. Obviously ignoring any aspect of a game has its downfalls and in our case, it was the missiles.
The missiles in this game aren’t the best to start off with, they are difficult to spot, and it is almost impossible to tell where exactly they are inspace (i.e. should you jump or stay low) until it’s far too late…
Other than the fact that it is incredibly difficult, there actually isn’t all that much to complain about in Go Forward Bravely. The graphics are nice, (except for the point we mentioned above), the controls are simple enough once you get used to them, and frankly, the levels are far too hard to become repetitive.
If you possess the skill required to play this game, Go Forward Bravely is a game you will likely really enjoy.
If you’re an extra skilled player who actually possesses the skill to visualize everything all at once without dying, then this is a game we highly recommend you check out. Unfortunately, we aren’t that skilled… yet… 😜
