    dkirschner's Capsized (PC)

    [November 20, 2015 02:45:47 PM]
    Just created this to close it. I've been *trying* to play Capsized for a long time but it is a pain to get working smoothly. I have a friend who played it and recommended it, and we generally have crossover tastes on 2d platformers. But after trying and failing to run this smoothly on my personal computer, trying and failing to run this smoothly on my personal laptop, and finally getting it to run smooth enough to play on my work laptop, I was able to play the last few days.

    Here's a blurb I vented after the first time trying to run it: No, no, no, no. The controls are all floaty, like youíre supposed to be in space (oh wait, you sort of are!), but I hate the floaty controls. I want this to be tight. There was input lag, and that went away when I turned off v-synch, but I still am not down with this. Also, the gamepad layout is illogical (no use of ABXY) and canít be changed. Mouse and keyboard controls arenít any better. I hate games that use UP to jump. I am always jumping when I donít want to jump. Trying it on a different computerÖ

    Verdict: floaty controls and annoying AI that just charges straight at you all the time. Neat for an hour, then gets frustrating. I spent a lot of my time just using my gravity hook to try and manipulate objects where I wanted them to go, and holding Up + Left/Right to scale vertical walls. Story is bland so far. You crash on a planet, rescue some crew mates, and kill a lot of aliens. It seems there is multiplayer, like drop in/drop out co-op, because after you rescue crew mates, they are present in subsequent levels...except with no one to control them, they just stand dumbly at the beginning of the level. That reaaaally kills the suspension of disbelief. Lame.
