Rpg conesuer Game looks to be good... just one little flaw... there seems to be no start up menu! So I accidently clicked start with a character that sucked... and I could not exit that game to a startup menu and make a character I liked! So the game looks fun enough that I erased it off my device and am going to reinstall it so I can try a different character that I get better rolls on. I will give 5 stars if you make a startup menu to return to for making new characters or restarting etc.
A nice little romp Well done, fun little throwback to old SSI style. Too short. Decent writing. One problem is that without resting, survival is about resource(potion) management. As wizards are SP dependent, this hampers their abilities severely. Weapon and item placement are a bit random and key to success(and why a Katana?!?). Fun little game though, and gives promise to future games/modules.
Excellent Love this, great characters and writing. Battles are balanced (once I realised there were areas I hadn't explored yet). One small criticism, the character creation tool is a little weird, I created a character but they didn't appear in my party automatically. Took me ages to figure out where they were and how to add them. Would love a longer story!
Short, simple and nice Obviously copying some things from ADND, but it's not annoying. And skipping battles if you aren't ingested in is a really great feature) But I miss loading save game without application restart. And I wish I had an ability to reverse order of actions in the battle: attack and then move if I wanted so. Also, how to remove created characters? )
It seems very fun... but I can see none of this 'balance'!! A very difficult game, with hard combats, no way to heal, and no way to level up beforehand.... a couple of items around, but nothing world-shattering.. it could also remember your settings, instead of having to turn on\off everything, every time...
Really Fun game, loved the storyline, would liked to be able to hold the buttons down and move automatically instead of tapping a billion times to get around the map. I found the map got too dark when emulating night. I'm thinking instead of making it so dark, maybe keep the brightness and use a moon symbol instead? Or not make it so dark. Also, was there a way to revive dead characters? If so, I couldn't figure it out. Hope to see more chapters, great game!
