Mary Skelter 2 is an RPG game that belongs to the category referred to as dungeon crawler. The production was developed by Idea Factory studio, the authors of the first part released in 2017, as well as the series Code: Realize, Agarest and Hyperdimension Neptunia.

In addition to new content, the game also includes a remake of the previous part, Mary Skelter: Nightmares, offering many improvements in terms of graphics and gameplay.

Storyline

The game is not a typical sequel. It tells the story of an alternative version of the world known from the original, and the authors recommend that those who are just beginning their adventure with the series first go through Mary Skelter2, and only then get down toMary Skelter: Nightmares.

The action takes place in a strange living structure known as the Prison, which feeds on the people imprisoned in it. The game tells the story of a female warrior named Otsuu and her partner Mermaid. During one of their adventures, they rescue a young girl named Alice and a boy named Jack. On their way back to the base, however, Alice goes berserk and starts attacking the rest of the group. During the fight, the team is knocked down into a deep crevice, ending up in the depths of the Prison. The heroes will have to fight their way back home.

Mechanics

In terms of gameplay mechanisms, Mary Skelter 2 is a development of ideas from the first part. So the game is a classically realized dungeon crawler. During the game we observe the world from a first-person perspective, the movement takes place in a jumping manner, and the player can turn only 90 degrees to the right or left.

During the game we explore the dungeons of the Prison, collect stuff, solve puzzles and most of all fight with hordes of monsters using turn-based battle system. Battles are also observed from a first-person perspective. During them there is no possibility to change the position of the character on the map, so we deal only with the activation of character's skills, using items and pointing the attack targets.

Inflicting wounds on enemies allows us to fill the blood bar for some members of the team belonging to the so-called bloody women. When it is filled we can activate special forms, which strongly increase the strength of attacks. However, this should be done carefully, because using this option can cause a rage, which causes the character to throw himself on the rest of the team.

As befits an RPG, a key role in the game is played by developing the character's skills. Many of them are used not only in battles, but also during the exploration of dungeons and solving puzzles.

A novelty in comparison with the previous part is the fact that Jack is transformed into Nightmare, a type of demon which we fought in the first installment of the series. However, he retains his sentience and thanks to that we gain access to a completely new set of skills, different from those of the bloody women.

Game modes

Mary Skelter 2 offers only single player mode.

Technical issues

The game offers simple but pleasing to the eye graphics done in a colorful style typical of Japanese cartoons. The environment and enemies are made in full 3D. However, characters and NPCs, which we see in dialogue and intermission scenes, are two-dimensional.

Game mode: single player
