A couple of quick questions about the newest Humble Bundle (Sanctum+GMod)

#1colormecrazyPosted 12/11/2013 2:30:55 AM(edited)
a) Are Sanctum 1 and 2 MP or can they be played single player too?
b) What is Sanctum Slums DLC? I have a code for it from like 2 years ago but I have no idea if it was provided in a free update or not
c) Can I play Garry's Mod if the only Source game I have is Portal 1?

And a couple about whether I should buy the above average
d) What's the diff between Sanctum 1 and 2? Why did they put 2 in the $1 bundle and 1 in the BTA bundle?
e) Are the two Orcs Must Die games kinda like Torchlight? Or are they more action based rather than action RPG?

a: They both have multiplayer
b: Slums is one of the old map DLCs. All of the map DLCs were combined into a couple of map packs.
c: Yes, but you really should get the HL2 games and Counter Strike: Source
d: I don't really know
e: They are nothing like Torchlight. They are Tower Defense games where you can control your character.

garrys mod can be played without any other source games having other games ie half life 2 just adds extra items that you can use in it that are from that game.

Orcs must die is similar to the idea behind sanctum except its fantasy with orcs and old fashioned traps etc. The first orcs must die is only 1 player and the second is two player. Both are very good games.

There isnt much difference between sanctum 1 and 2 so not sure why they had 1 as above the average.

apparently there is a huge difference between sanctum 1 and 2. one is more tower defense based. The other is more FPS *pewpew* based

While I may not agree with your opinion, I will defend to the death your right to have it.

I haven't played the first one yet (Just got them in the bundle), but I'd say the second one is probably the shooter-based one. It feels like my towers barely do anything to the enemies and I have to spend most of my chasing after enemies.

Both OMD games are great, I had them before the bundle. Only complaint I have is that the second one is more Co-op based. It's harder to do some of the later levels if you're playing alone. I'm not sure if I'd say it's a tower defense game in the traditional sense like Sanctum. You can place traps on the floor, walls, or ceilings, and all of them can be put in the path of the orcs. The only trap that blocks movement is the barricade, which you can use to guide orcs into a certain path. You could also just block the path entirely, but then they'll start attacking the barricades and destroy them.

They can be played both single and multiplayer.

You still can, but it'll be a little limited because you won't have access to some hilarious character models. Like Ellis in L4D2. I'm not sure if TF2 assets would be in there. It's F2P, but no idea if they restrict it to people who actually spent money in the game.

Mostly gameplay stuff. Off the top of my head, the first one has an overheat system for guns while the second has a bullet system (with infinite mags). They added a levelling system in the sequel as well as more characters to choose from, each with a weapon specialty.

They're like Sanctum, actually. Tower Defense games where you take an active role in killing the baddies, with a major difference being that OMD is in third-person. The first is exclusively singleplayer, but definitely worth a playthrough. I found it very fun.

The second has multiplayer with a choice between the Warmage and the Sorceress. It's fantastic in co-op. Adds a lot of other traps too, with favourites from the first game returning.
