Only played 5 games this weekend because I'm still in my honeymoon phase with Elvira 3, but one of the things that made me happy was I finally heard my favorite game start callout: "Welcome to my world underglass!". I thought they took this callout out with the latest update, as I haven't heard it since in like the hundreds of games that I played. Sure... I might not have noticed it a few time, but I always seemed to get stuff like the Hangman is waiting. So that kind of made my day to know that the callout is in fact still in the game.
Love this game so much. Its just super fun to play.
And while playing it, one of the things I like is how unique each of the modes are to themselves. Elvira 3 I really do enjoy the early code(its not complete, but its still fun and the bones are there), but the modes themselves... While there are differences to them, they are not as unique as Maiden.
Aces High 2 ball mb that can have one add a ball with all main shots lit for jackpots at start. Collect a certain amount lights the ramps. hit the ramp and that lights the shooting of the ace. Hit the ace twice and now you lit the shooting of the bomber. Just so cool.
Its so much different than Rime's MB.
And of course Icuras is ramps mode.
Fear of course makes excellent use of not only making combos. Ramp to ramp, but also ramp to orbit to get the rip on the spinner. Such a fun mode to play.
And I guess the closest feeling mode to any of Elvira 3's modes would be Hallowed be thy name. As that you basically have to hit all the shots in the game, along with the newton ball and the drops.
But, I also think the Mummy MB is cooler than junk in the trunk. And I think the rules for the drops lighting locks while being a much safer shot than Elvira 3, does stink that you have to cycle through the x bonus, and mummy rewards. But, again that is due to the drops being a relatively safe shot. Elvira 3's drop target for ball lock can be a very dangerous shot.
As I said before I am really enjoying Elvira 3. But, man there is really something special about Iron Maiden. Such an amazing game in both layout and code. Not to mention there is just a great energy I get when I play this game. Love the music, love the callouts.
I would like some of Elvira 3's modes to stand out a bit more. But, I don't think that is the intent with the code. Which is fine.
Anyway. Sorry for the ramble. But, I really was just too jazzed to hear that callout when my game began.
