Twoer Defence: The Two Worlds 2 Spin-Off

By Alec Meer on April 22nd, 2011.

Aaargh! I love tower defence games and I quite like Two Worlds 2 (even though they wouldn’t send me review code), but I have both Portal 2 to finish and Witcher 2 preview code on my PC. No time! Nooooo tiiiiiime! Maybe you have time. Tell me you do. If you do, you should try the bizarre Two Worlds 2 spin-off game Castle Defense, for which you slip into the shoes of TW2 arch-nasty Gandohar as he smacks down rebellion. The game’s not out until May 17, but there’s a demo now.

Amazingly, they haven’t called it Twoer Defense, but that’s because they’re not as clever as me. Try it here.

Two Worlds 2 Is Too Pretty

By Alec Meer on August 27th, 2008.

Ah, Two Worlds – the comically-translated RPG that malicious types (like me) could describe as the poor man’s Oblivion. Or perhaps the drunken madman’s Oblivion. It was utter nonsense in so many ways, but hard to dislike – it had a certain just-getting-on-with-it factor that its peers lacked, and offered no small amount of unintentional belly laughs. Also, you could improve your weapons by bolting weapons of the same type onto ‘em, which was a fun way around the usual loot fixation.

A sequel’s on its way, and the first screenshots of it are out. RPS’ initial reaction was to cry bullshot, but a chum who saw it in action at Leipzig assures us that these are the genyooine article. More pics’n'words beneath the cut.

Further Adventures In Two-Worlds

By Jim Rossignol on April 25th, 2008.


But, for now, only for people who bought the Game-of-the-Year edition. Developers Zuxxez have announced a “brand new multiplayer add-on”, which will apparently allow some co-op exploration of the game quests, as well as a bunch of new content. Misleadingly written press releases make Baby Jim Cry. This content is now available for all Two Worlds owners to download. This includes some changes to the game world to open up a new trade district and “business centre” as well as some rather more traditional missions.

Players can now go on the hunt for a crazy Necromancer, unsolve the mystery of a massacre in a woodcutters’ camp, deal with a rebel knight (permanently) and lots more.

You can pick up the free Tainted Blood expansion from the 1st May on the official website, and Two Worlds owners can expect more downloadable content to arrive soon thereafter.

(I haven’t played Two-Worlds, but it doesn’t look too bad. Does anyone have any opinions on how it compare to Gothic 3, or The Witcher?)

Two Worlds Demo

By Jim Rossignol on August 24th, 2007.

The demo of Two Worlds, a fantasy adventure with pretensions towards being the next Oblivion, can be downloaded from here.

This is my hero. That’s the default hat. He started the game with it.

But it’s not just about hats. There’s moonwalking too.
