my computer is a decaying heap of garbage


The sad thing when buying a new computer is, that some of your old fav games ain’t compatible and can’t be played; you know, Windows XP vs Windows 7.

Anyway, our opinions might differ about Legend of Pandora, but we’re both fans of RPGs. So, for the future, if I notice that you have given a game a good review here on AoG, I know it will be worth playing.

I envy you. See, I'm here surfing Flash games because my computer is a decaying heap of garbage that was top of the range back in 2006, but now wont even let me play the games I already own let alone any new ones. It's not worth fixing now, since it's too outdated, and I can't afford a new system either. Plus, I'd need a higher-end gaming computer for it to be worthwhile, or I'll just end up needing to upgrade it within a couple of months anyway.

That, and I've never owned a console--only ever PCs.

Anyway, my point being that all the other games I mentioned in comparison--Legend of the Void, Chimera Stones, etc.--those are all free-to-play Flash games too. And if the creators of those Flash put the time and effort in to do it right, and make brilliant games either because or in spite of their chosen platform, then there's no excuse for half-assed attempts like we see here.

Obviously you couldn't expect to hold all games to exactly the same standard, but I do expect anything calling itself "an RPG" to achieve certain genre-specific criteria.

And I have played the third chapter of Mardek, here on AoG. Another example of a decent Flash game that doesn't do things half-assed, although I still find the total lack of character creation/cusomization incredibly frustrating. Random encounters get annoying too.

If you haven’t tried it yet, maybe you’d like the Mardek Series. As in a lot of RPGs, the fighting and grinding can be a bit repetitive, but the three chapters (chap. 1 is more of a prologue) will have you building relationships with more than one character, and it comes with a decent plot.
Beware, though, it’s very time consuming :-)
(PS. Preferably to be played at Kongregate, a newer version than AoGs)

The game is friendly to the player: you can choose your key settings, the map you explore gives you a good view where you are and have been, you make money quick and upgrading also goes fast (spend some skill points on money collecting/upgrading speed), lots of save stations – often combined with a merchant. And the possibility to warp everywhere is a great thing, as you don’t have to go through the same areas again.


You know what? You have a point. I've been viewing this from the perspective of an adult roleplayer and holding it up to the standard of good RPGs like Chimera Stones, Legend of the Void, Monsters Den Chronicles and the like...

But really, this is much more like the "Tonka Toy" of RPGs. :P

Seriously though: Of course all these things are great to have, but not all on their own in lieu of substance and depth. All RPGs essentially stand or fall by the relationship between player and character, and the value of any good RPG lies in providing that depth in the context of an arcing, complex plot.

All this one offers is overwhelming simplicity, bright colours, being "difficult to break" and unlikely to challenge, frustrate, scare or confuse:

The "Fischer Price" RPG. :P

Just finished this game, part 1 it seems, as the developer has announced a sequel.

For a game in the Zelda-genre, I think it’s a fiver.

"Kill at least fifteen snakes, and I will give you a powerful weapon."
[The adventurer kills fifteen snakes]
"Thank you for your help!"
[The adventurer receives: A plank of wood]

XD

I've been Jonesing for a decent new RPG that I haven't already played.

This isn't it.

Before you get the wrong idea, the above actually wasn't meant humorously at all, but within the context of the game appears to be completely serious. Like the writer simply didn't notice how ridiculous it would be.

The graphics are hideous, and the character interactions, inventory system, skills and stats are all incredibly limited, basic and dismally unimaginative.

What I find personally most annoying though is that this is yet ANOTHER so called "RPG" that manages to completely gloss over THE most important aspect of the entire genre, and offers players only the most boring, basic, one-dimensional generic character to play.

I mean, seriously? No character creation AGAIN? Really? Not even the ability to choose between premade characters, this time? WTF? >.<

It's about a 2/5. At best a 2. A generous 2. Rounded up.


Still, I'm having a good time playing this :-)

There are save stations spread out (looking like computers), and you can also warp between them. The first save is to the right of the stairs which leads into town. Press K (if you are using the default settings) to open the save menu.
