Good news for all 2D platformers’ fans out there who, until now, thought that Blackhole might turn out to be too hardcore for them. Not only Easy Mode was just added to the game, but the free demo is also now available. And if the amount of dialogues bugged you too, consider it solved as well.
Consisting of 5 diverse levels, the demo will allow gamers to get a glimpse of what’s best in Blackhole. Playing with gravity, solving puzzles and learning how to wall-jump should be enough to convince all not convinced yet, that it’s worth to join Endera crew and learn their story.
Not a big fan of long chats between NPCs, that interrupt your platforming experience? No problem as from now on you’ll be able to choose ‘Less dialogues’ option and turn it on or off freely throughout your whole play through. This option doesn’t switch the story off completely. It only disables some side dialogue lines that are not core for the plot. And leaves you with pure, dynamic, platforming joy.
Unlike ‘Less dialogues’ this option can be chosen only once as it changes the gameplay massively. Also it disables most achievements based on hardcore playthrough and timing. And it won’t allow you to send time record or coffee-time for levels to online leaderboards. So be careful and think twice before enabling it! In the same time this may be a great solution for gamers who seemed to have problems with finishing the game but yet were keen on learning the whole story.
Mostly because with Easy Mode on, you will be able to keep your collected selfburn if you die. And if you run over the start portal, your progress will be saved. Those, who already had a chance to try out the game know, that this will make beating the levels and solving puzzles significantly easier. And in result the game should be more accessible for casual gamers.
