I picked this one up too. I expected to see a literal remake of the original, but its nothing like it. I give it a 9/10 overall. I'm enjoying it.
After playing it a little while, for some reason, I started having flashbacks of the game Overlord. While we have no minions in this one, its oddly similar in layout. Just imagine the little Seed Orbs in this one as Sheep in Overlord. Then in Overlord we have certain areas controlled by some sinister ruler that the Overlord must destroy...same in this one. Is it just me having these thoughts?
Plays super smooth maxed out here. No bugs at all.
