[PlayStation 4] The Tale of Clouds and Wind Review
The Tale of Clouds and Wind from QUBYte Interactive is a classic beat ’em up now on PS4. Learn more about it in our The Tale of Clouds and Wind review!
The Tale of Clouds and Wind from QUBYte Interactive is a classic beat ’em up now on PlayStation 4. The game was originally released in 1994 in Hong Kong as Water Margin on Sega’s MegaDrive, and it offers single-player and multiplayer for up to two gamers at once. It’s a weapon-based beat ’em up, and it takes some sprites and content from other beat ’em up games and edited it to present a different experience – games such as Knights of the Round, Golden Axe, and Streets of Rage.
There are three characters for you to choose from: Shi Jin, Hu Sanniang, and Li Kui. Each character will have different values for their attack, defense, agility, and jump stats, thus favoring different gameplay styles. Shi Jin has balanced stats. Hu Sanniang favors defense and jump but has lower attack and agility. Li Kui has outstanding attack and agility but a lower defense and jump.
Once you’re ready to go, you’ll play this one with the left analog stick or the D-Pad, attacking with the Circle button and jumping with the Square button. Pressing the Circle button while in mid-air will unleash a jump attack. The X button is for activating your special attack, which will consume the corresponding special item displayed at the top of the screen. You can also go into the options menu by pressing the L2 and R2 buttons at the same time to remap these buttons as needed in case you feel the default setup does not click with you.
Trophy-wise, this one has a full list with a Platinum trophy. There are 2 Bronze trophies, 13 Silver trophies, and 6 Gold trophies. Trophies will pop as you complete each level that the game has to offer, with others popping when you’ve used each of the different special attacks at least four times, complete the game in each difficulty setting, complete the game in the Hero difficulty setting with each of the three characters, and score 60,000, 300,000, and 1,000,000 points in total. And as has been the case for other classic game releases from QUByte Interactive, you can take advantage of the state save and loading features to fix any mistakes made along the way.
The Tale of Clouds and Wind is an actual old-school beat ’em up that was only released in Honk Kong many moons ago in 1994 for the Sega MegaDrive, and it’s now ready for you on PlayStation 4 with a budget price of only $4.99, offering seven levels to take on as you defeat everyone on your path.
