The Murky Depths of Leviathan
Captain, steerage is full of murderous robots
After clearing the opulent upper decks of the Leviathan starship, full of big shirtless turtle-rhino boys, the lower levels of the Leviathan are an interesting change, from gold gilded baths to a murky poisonous cyber-swamp. Why is there a giant area full of gross water in this starship? Can you have bilges in the zero gravity of space? Well, the dirty water from the baths has to go somewhere… ew. We’re just going to not think about all the times we fell in the water during that first platforming section.
The steerage section of the Leviathan has some serious health and safety violations going on as well – apparently the only way to reach the lowest levels of the starship is to jump into a giant hole with a murderous fan at the bottom, not to mention the huge fiery void you come to shortly afterwards. Let’s not even start on the huge Vex death robot that lives in the horrific fiery void… Wait, how did all this fit inside the Leviathan? Space magic, probably.
Seriously though, Leviathan, Eater Of Worlds has some well-designed encounters. A tense platforming puzzle, a good old-fashioned gauntlet of mobs, a frantic and fast-paced timed challenge and a decidedly epic boss fight. We recommend not looking up a walkthrough for this one, because it’s great fun trying to work out the encounters on your own (plus it adds some much-needed length to the experience!)
