In general, the style of play The devil in me remains the same as the previous parts. We have the option to play solo or with others locally or online. The level of difficulty is defined in 3 levels: patient, difficult, fatal; and can be changed at any time in the game (a good point if the game seems too hard or too easy during the chapters). Our choices and actions affect the relationship between characters, as well as the potential for each to die.

However, many features have been added The devil in me. Previously, the game was too much for us: the character could only move forward and backward Qty at the right time. Here we can now jump, climb, move decorative elements and even maintain some balance during a graceful transition (for example, moving along a tree trunk). It is clear that these additions bring a certain dynamism to the game. A way to renew the license.

A large labial slip as seen: the character’s mouth begins to curl, and the sound of his voice does not come out after a few seconds. Bugs that don’t stop us from playing, but are a little annoying because they take us out of the game.
