Raji: An Ancient Epic - Enhanced Edition
(ESRB - Premium Edition Games, Revision 000)
- Nodding Heads Games
English and Hindi voiceovers
Beaten on Normal Campaign mode.
Tested the first half of the game in handheld mode and the second half in docked mode.
Level select available upon completion, but no New Game Plus.
Gameplay holds at 30 fps but it can go lower occasionally. Except for the final boss, it can tank significantly, will explain further.
Shadow screen flickering early in the game. Was mildly distracting as it happened.
During a later part of the game Raji accidentally got stuck and there was no way to reset in game, so we had to close and relaunch the game to fix the issue.
A white outline bug below the screen eventually happened further into playing session. seemed like the extensive length of the session caused it. A reset also fixed this, thankfully.
Some enemy animations for the Assassin type won’t show up correctly sometimes. Also the same enemies sometimes will bug out their health bar. They were still killable, though.
Unsure if intentional but a yellow rectangle shows up while doing some of the face puzzles. Again, a bit distracting.
Sometimes while doing the circle puzzles the L and R buttons don’t work. You have to switch to another layer for it to continue working.
Tester Tip 1: It is highly recommended to use the sword and shield to protect yourself from the second bosses’ screams and claw attack. Also be ready to as soon as possible to spam dodge roll against her fire pit attacks.
Tester Tip 2: At the near end of the game around the 3rd world there will be 2 demon towers that will keep spawning demons. It is best to use the spear to take them out as soon as possible.
Issues with the final boss:
Sometimes after death, Raji just all the sudden dies again prompting for another reload. The cause as to why is unknown. However, after that, the game resumes like normal.
As you get to phase 2 of the final boss, when he summons a lot of shadow clones, the fps will tank SIGNIFICANTLY. This is very close to download recommended scenario.
Tester Tip 3: With the disc weapon, ensure you angle the weapon to defeat the shadow clones and his health properly. For the shadow hands, it is best to spam dodge to avoid being hit. For the part of the final phase he will not get hurt immediately from the weapon, it is not a bug but intentionally designed that way. After you beat the last sum of health, he will spawn more shadows and the game will be top down, but the game will then transition to the ending.
Only one ending is on the cart. No other endings are available.
