Video Game Abyss Odyssey (PC) (2014)

20150906:
At midnight, my friend Michael and I decided to try the co-op mode for Abyss Odyssey, because it was currently free to play on Steam (Steam Free Weekend).


Setup: At first we tried playing co-op online and we encountered a lot of lag. Then, when Michael tried to host an online session, the game crashed. As such, we eventually played it over a local connection.

Gameplay: Implement a Smash Bros. combat system with custom skills to collect (like Megabyte Punch (PC) (2013)).

Thoughts: (Co-op)
Pros:
+ Good music
+ Decent graphics


Neutral:
~ Brutal (high learning curve) combat system; it's more like an advanced fighter than a smash brawler
~ Co-op mode implements friendly attacks; on the one hand it made the game harder, on the other we enjoyed it.
~ Some rogue-like elements

Con:
- The developers decided to assign both players the same color; how confusing
