As someone who loved Undertale, Unitale was something that really did interest me. With that being said, for all, I find what they have done with this game to be very clever. I feel that to get enjoyment out of this and appreciate what they have done here, you have to have played and enjoyed Undertale. Just jumping into this blind is probably not going to knock your socks off if I am being honest with you.
That Classic Kind Of Style
The first thing I want to talk about is the style and the presentation that the game has going on. I found that in terms of the visuals, Unitale manages to capture the look and feel of what it is based on very well. It has very, very old school sprites, it looks like the kind of game I would play on my schools’ computer where I got computer time back in the late 80s. Even with this simplistic style, it is very charming and something that I and I am sure many other fans of Undertale will get a massive kick out of.
Simple, Complicated, Basic, But Fun
One of the strongest things that Undertale had going on for it if you ask me was the story. It was very interesting and had me intrigued right from the start. With Unitale here that epic story is not quite there, but that is kind of the point. The idea of this game is that it takes the sprites, data and so on from the battles that were part of Undertale and you then need to take part in various battles.
The battles are always a lot of fun and while when you look at a screenshot or video it may seem basic. You never know what is going to be thrown your way. You can fight, run, use items and show mercy. Showing mercy was a big part of what you would do in Undertale, but it is not as important here. In all honesty, as a fan of Undertale, I have had a lot of fun just screwing around with this. I feel that I am the kind of gamer that something like this is aimed at.
There will be many people who will fire this up and just hate it and not get what it is trying to do at all. For me and you other Undertale fans. You are probably going to find what has been done with Unitale rather interesting and have a lot of fun just screwing around with it. It still manages to have that charm the battles in Undertale did and being able to tinker with the various systems is kind of cool. As I said, I do feel you need to have played and enjoyed Undertale to get any kind of enjoyment out of this.
