Rise of The Avatar gameup on Nick.com

26 Comments

Today sees the start of a big ATLA event Nick are doing, The Rise Of The Avatar Weekend. From June 13th to June 15th they will air all of ATLA in a marathon and they are kicking it off with the release of a new game on their website, Rise Of The Avatar.

Here is the link, note if you are not from America you will need to use a program like Tunnelbear to play the game.

RiseofTheAvatar

The game is a grid based button-masher fighting/adventure game.

It is interesting enough, but honestly I am not a fan of how it plays at all. The camera angle makes the controls awkward, because your view is a 45 degree isometric view I found I was constantly messing up where I was moving Aang. Did up on my keyboard make Aang go diagonally up and right or up and left and so on. Add to that that with it being a grid based game, but not turn based it makes the combat extremely awkward and frustrating as you miss your attacks constantly. Especially the part I got stuck on, the boss battle with Zuko, I simply could not beat him because of a combination of the controls and the awkward combat.

The level structure seems very basic, 3 main levels, one for Book 1 Water, 1 for Book 2 Earth and 1 for Book 3 Fire and a mystery level at the end that will be unlocked through a code revealed during the marathon on Nick. This game was advertised as taking place after the show, so perhaps this final level is post Book 3, but I am not sure and even if the level was open I doubt I would be able to make it to the level.

I also encountered a few bugs like Zuko phasing through obstacles he should not have been able to walk through and other stuff like that.

I think the game is worth a try and perhaps people more experienced with these flash games will get more enjoyment out of it than I did. I am interested in seeing what this final level is, but I was frustrated enough that I have no desire to really play the game again. I appreciate Nick putting up a new game, but at this stage I wish they would put time into developing a quality game and really make it something great.

    As flash games go its just ok. It took me a while to adjust to the isometric view but after a while I could navigate enough to avoid enemies. I noticed the bug with zuko too. It seems the less life he has the harder he get which is expected but being able to break the game physics it a bit much if that was intended which I doubt it was.

    The dancing dragon gave me the hardest trouble since you have to really get the timing down with your keyboard. The moves they where preforming actually looked kind of cool but if you try to look at Zuko and Anng while doing the moves you will mess up which is too bad.

    Getting fire bending was pretty cool though but it seems a bit over powered since it’s a one hit kill on most enemies though it does take a good amount of energy to do.

    It took me under 30mins more or less I think to get through the 3 books but I didn’t bother trying to get the all the medallions.(I’m the avatar why would I not use all of my elements on a level?) Not sure why I was expecting something more awesome, must of been the 5 seconds in the trailer made it look good.

    I wonder if the last stage is air and Aang gets an upgraded air attack. We need someone to just figure out the code and tell us so we don’t have to wait.

    The tv event has already started. I don’t get nicktoons, I think nobody needs to watch. If I find the code on tumblr I will post it here for people on the site who have made it that far.
