Kodoani.com – After the huge success of Dragon Ball, manga author Akira Toriyama created several short stories on Weekly Shonen Jump. Among these exciting titles, the manga series Sand Land in 2000 has been adapted into a game version expected to launch in 2023. In this article, we will explore a little bit about the demo version of the game, along with quite unique playing experiences.
Very Unique Control System
One of the special features of the demo version of the game Sand Land is the quite unique control system. In modern games, control schemes often place the left analog to control movement and the right analog to control the camera. This is fine for most players, as most of us have better movement control with our right hand. However, there is still a weakness – if the player is left-handed, and this already makes the game more interesting.
Initially, the game starts with an exciting chase with a Sand Land monster and your challenge is to avoid its attacks. This is done by tapping left or right on the left analog stick. This player felt this was quite simple, until faced with the afterlife. There, the tester fails first.
The difficulty comes from having to adapt to the new control system – the left analog button controls movement, while the right analog controls the camera. This created a challenging experience, and the player had to learn how to control the controller effectively to complete the mission within the allotted time.
Part of the demo includes a fight with some tank-wielding bandits. This is a fun little fight, especially for new players. However, even more fun comes when you can get hold of the powerful tank. In this car, players can freely explore the world and blow up everything on the way. However, that’s only true if you’ve adapted to the game’s rather unique control system.
While using a tank and shooting things down looks exciting, the game also forces players to learn how to dodge attacks and adapt to the change in controls. Although there are some challenges at first, the game has potential and is definitely worth the wait.
Although there is still no information about the official release date, it is expected that Sand Land will appear on platforms such as Nintendo Switch, PlayStation and Xbox. We have reason to hope for an interesting game based on the creative talent of Akira Toriyama.
