Lara Croft goes Jump n Run!

This is an update to my yesterday’s post “Tomb Raider 9: Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light“…

Some new screenshots and a First-Look post on gamespot have been released in the meantime. Thanks to @fylaracroft for mentioning it.

It seems that LCatGoL is not meant to be the next real Tomb Raider sequel. To me it looks more like a promotional mini game or something like that. Hard to believe that i shall open my purse for it…

Back to the 80’s!

This is how gamespot describes it: “Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light (…) is an arcade-inspired action romp with a fixed isometric camera and a focus on high scores and replay value…”

After the first shock is over it becomes clear to see that this piece of bits and bytes really has nothing to do with Tomb Raider. It seems to be a side-product and reminds me on some 80’s Jump n Run games…

I mean fixed isometric camera, high scores and arcade-inspired… really not my genre. And when i want to play such stuff i’m sure i can find Mario in the forgotten box underneath the bed.

Maybe not that bad!

Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light probably isn’t that boring. Nobody played the game yet. It can happen that it’s an entertaining, nicely done game for a lazy weekend or two.

After all, such an unexpectedly strange looking Lara Croft game is better than nothing. Maybe it’s the perfect thing to shorten the waiting time until the true Tomb Raider 9 comes out.

Still a remaining questions is about the platforms. I still don’t believe that it comes for the PC, but anyway, everything is possible, even that “Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light” is available for free download (Huh, have i really said that?).

I’m sure the Games Developers Conference will bring more news.

If you are a Tomb Raider fans as well you can follow developer Crystal Dynamics on Twitter. The guys trying hard to satisfy the needs of Lara’s fans. Check them out.
