Hi Fishies,

I just wanted to add to the OP: This thread has been reserved for reviews only.

If you have any questions about someone else’s review (even if you feel that their review contains incorrect details about this game) please contact that user directly via PM instead of replying to or quoting their post as this can develop into a discussion that is not suitable to the review thread.

While the reviews in this thread are first and foremost helpful to other players, they also tell us and all who were involved in making this game, what you liked/disliked most, what you’d like to see more/less of in future games, etc. This can only help us in continuing to provide better games, which is what we all want!

We want to ensure that everyone who visits this thread can easily find the reviews that they’re looking for, so the Moderation Team will be proactively removing any off-topic posts (i.e. non-reviews) that pop up in this thread.

For any non-review related posts, please feel free to create a "Comments" thread in this Game Forum if there isn't one already. You can always create a new thread for any game questions or tips.

Thank you!

Only played for a few minutes to get the feel of this RPG. ALT-Enter makes the screen larger. Holding down shift and an arrow key makes the character run. There is mouse support. No journal so you'll have to keep track of quests on your own. Enemies are invisible, which I dislike as they are unavoidable. With no journal & unavoidable enemies, I'll pass until this is a DD.

Quest Journals should be mandatory!

Sounds like it was someone's first attempt at the rpg maker 2 which is fine. What is not fine is the fact that you have no quest tracker and that you cannot see the enemies. That seems just wrong. Maybe one in a while, but not like this. I also noticed the names of the mobs and also the one liners are pretty cliche. Maybe would consider buying after they fixed a bunch of stuff. There are far better rpgs here....and out on steam ect.

As much as I love RPGs, I'm going to pass on this one. No quest journals, you start out with no equipment, no money, and no way of getting either. Your first quest is (as far as I could tell) not achievable in the starting town. The first dungeon has a place where you need to jump or otherwise cross a space - I couldn't figure out how to do that and when I went for help on controls, was refused.

An amateurish attempt, in my view, and not ready for prime time.

I am loving this game.
Really, you have to work to earn the big bucks and at 5 coins a shot, I feel like I'm working for minimum wages A quest journal would have helped ... not sure how much more game time there is before the 'end'.
I am at the point where I have to find a way to get back all my boy parts lol and for the life of me can't figure out what's next?
Still, rpg's are worth the $ - lots of game time, full of surprises and different choices for a different game play

I am enjoying this game and not in a rush to get to the end because the side stories are funny and/or interesting. Minor things like the 'walking thru walls' glitch haven't hurt game play. The more you look around, the more you find ways to get money and items needed. The story line and humor are what makes this game good, not the graphics. Some of the more 'elegant' graphic games have stories that are so trite or obvious that all the fancy coding in the world won't make them worth the time or money. I am not so sure a quest journal is all that important because I am seeing that there are many options of where to go and what to do first. A quest journal tends to make people think in a linear way and I suspect that in this game it may not be necessary to go from A to B to C..... you might be able to jump around from A to D and back to C!

The game was not as much fun as other rpg's but it is well worth the $. I confess that I do like having a journal to keep up with things, making sure I don't miss anything. I like having the monsters drop money & items after a fight. Wish this game did more of that. The best you get is drinks & sometimes food. I was disappointed that you didn't really earn much experience with each fight but you did start out pretty strong without weapons or armor. The graphics were not the greatest but, all in all, I did enjoy the game. I will play the game again.

Forgot to mention, the hardest part was the forest with the flowers, hornets & mimic boxes. You could hardly take a step without having to fight. It was drastically different from all the other areas of the game. I didn't like fighting & fighting but getting so little reward.

Just finished the game and I must say that I really enjoyed it. I will agree with the others that the graphics were not as spectacular as ones made by more polished game makers, but the gameplay more than made up for that for me. At first, I was frustrated by the lack of of a quest log/journal, but as I played, I realized that it freed me to play the game as I wanted. Whenever I had trouble remembering which side quests were still available, I'd just revisit the pubs and reread the notices on the walls (esp. once I had gotten the airship). The characters felt authentic and the dialogs were usually humorous and informative. I would recommend the developer include either a map or a journal in any subsequent games, just to make finding things/people again easier. I will definitely play this again, and am looking forward to the next one they put out.
