I really, really wanted to like this. Vlambeer is one of my favorite developers, and I do have a small soft spot for serious sam.
The problem with Serious Sam: The Random Encounter is it's a bit like Space Jam, it's an idea that sounds really great on paper but doesn't work so well in execution. It's pretty much a heavily scripted pixelated turn based RPG which has one of the oddest turn based/action combat hybrids I've ever seen. You pick a character, pick a weapon or if you want them to use an item, and then point them in a direction to fire said weapon or use said item. Then you get around 5-10 seconds of action while you try to dodge bullets and hit targets with the aim you set.
The problem with this is that especially when you gain a third party member, it becomes almost impossible to actually dodge anything or have any real "skill" with dodging or hitting. As hordes get bigger later on, aiming gets less useful too, as hordes will get so big that it pretty much doesn't matter where you aim.
Keep in mind this is a scripted RPG, so no shops, no "real" overworld and every item or weapon you get is found as part of the rigidly scripted story that's underwritten even for Serious Sam. There are technically "Random encounters" (heh), but with the rewards they dole out it's actually more resource efficient to just skip straight to the next area.

It's just not worth it. You will probably get about 3-4 stages in like I did and quit when the Texan comes into play because of how impossible it is to keep going.
Buy it maybe it if goes on sale for like a dollar and you're curious. You won't even get an hour out of this.

Game constantly crashes. Developers tell us an update is coming soon to fix it but nothing and the game still crashes after a few minutes of playing. Would not recommend the download even if it was free.

It's not often that words fail me, but in this case I think they might. There's just no way to fully describe the variety of reactions that I get when playing this game. I can describe SOME of it - enjoyment, amusement, mild frustration, more amusement - but more than anything this is something I simply did not expect in a Serious Sam title.

Briefly, the game plays a bit like a classic turn-based RPG, with you selecting actions (primarily attacking) while facing off against enemies. What makes this a Serious Sam game is that it's initally just Sam against 20+ enemies per encounter, and you're running backwards as they're running towards you. The format is also a bit different in that you can move Sam around as wave after wave of enemy heads towards you, allowing you to dodge attacks, or try at any rate. As you progress through the game you gain two other allies who you can control during fights. This improves your damage output but makes dodging much harder, as all three move as one unit. In between fights you move around on an overhead view map, encountering enemies randomly as you move; thus, the name.

Of course, what also makes this a proper Serious Sam game is the weapons you are given. Initially limited to a Revolver and Minigun, you eventually pick up nearly the full compliment of Serious Sam weapons: shotgun, rocket launcher, laser rifle, sniper rifle, grenade launcher, and even the Cannon. Each has been balanced fairly well for the way the game plays, with differing strengths and weaknesses. Last but not least, the game has no shortage of humor, perfectly on tone for Sam and his usual shenanigans. Many of the jokes are aimed at the game's new format, with Sam complaining about "puzzles" (read: having to pick up a key) for example.

In the end, Serious Sam: The Random Encounter is an amusing and enjoyable spinoff of the Serious Sam brand, though admittedly a very short one. On my first attempt it took me about an hour to get through the entirety of the game to the final boss. I won't say that's a dealbreaker, especially since the game has a reasonable replay value, but it's worth knowing when you're deciding how much you're willing to pay for a copy. If you need something to kill an hour or two, you could do far worse.

Um lixo! Praticamente não existe estratégia e as batalhas são todas iguais.

This is an old school RPG based around the Serious Sam franchise. You'll have a top down map with enemy encounters and be taken to a RPG style battle system. The map worlds are literally one screen sections, if your party is wiped out three times, you need to restart that one map. It would feel right at home on the original Gameboy or a mobile phone. Random battles can happen when you walk one space on the map, so if that angers you, avoid this game.

The real game is the combat, each battle pits you and your allies against several if not dozens or hundreds of enemies chasing after you. You select fight, swap weapon or item. Any of your characters can use any weapon. Here's where it gets interesting, the weapons and enemies have uses like in an action game. The revolver will shoot at the closest enemy, the shotgun is a defensive weapon if any enemies or big projectiles get within a proximity of the user, the rocket launcher sends a spread of 3 rockets one per turn, the grenade launcher does big damage.... if you can hit your target in it, since enemies move, they might be gone before the grenade lands, and there's a mini gun where you aim the line and fire until the end of the turn.

Enemies have different properties too. Some will stay far and shoot, others will chase after you and damage you, killing themselves. Enemies are quicker and slower than you, so you can either outrun them or they'll catch you. All of the combat is a really fresh take on RPG turn based combat. Oh and as your turn is happening, you can move your party up and down on the screen to dodge projectiles or stall for time as you wait for the next shotgun blast.

After every battle, you get full health. The items mostly consist of armor power ups, health, attack buffs. All of which seem to be needed for bosses at the end of each one screen map.

So if I enjoy the game how could I give it a negative rating?

The game is a steep climb in difficulty before you know it. Walls of bullets, things become unavoidable, deaths are inevitable even if party members are revived with full health after a battle. Everything needs to be done in battle and that is the real downfall. You cannot use any items such as armor outside of battle. So if you're facing a wall of bullets against dozens or hundreds of enemies, you'll just get slaughtered again and again. Luck of who you fight plays a big part of your survival. You can grind all you want before a boss battle. The catch is once you've used your 3 lives, you'll need to start that map over again without all of the grinding you just did. Another problem with lack of grinding is that you can't go back to a previous map to grind and no amount of grinding will save you from bullet walls that comes with every enemy encounter past a few maps. Another downfall is there is no native controller or steam support. Not even key binding, but everything else is a much bigger glaring issue.

In all, its just a fresh take on old school RPGs and I like it, but its as if the developers didn't play the game past a certain point. If you're looking for a very difficult new RPG that is unforgiving and makes grinding meaningless, this is the game for you.

Most serious game OF ALL TIME! Contained absolutely no joking around, horsing off, rigamarole, goofin, flim-flam, ballyhoo, jim-jammery, ribbing, ribaldry, jesting comments, light banter, hoopla, slapstick, vaudvillian wisecracking, farcitude, slack-cutting, or campiness of any kind.

A great use of the Serious Sam franchise. An old school top down desktop exploration game combined with JRPG fighting mechanics. Save Sam and support Vlambeer in the process for only a few bucks!

IF you own windows 8, DON´T BUY THIS. I doesn´t work at all, sound is bad, it´s a laggy game overall
IF you own windows 7, definitily buy this, it´s an awesome take on a JRPG wqith the Serious Sam theme, humor, lore.
(I just not recommend this because the devs said they would fix this and Super Crate Box two years ago, no progress yet).

Pretty bad. Combat is clunky and the difficulty isn't paced well at all. Seems more a low effort tie-in than a legitimate indie title with the Serious Sam license.

This game is fun. Flat out. The combat is very unique. You give commands to your Sam(s), then combat runs for 5 seconds (with you moving your Sam(s) vertically). Then you get to give new commands. This can include switching guns, using items, etc.

Well worth the $5 I spent on it.

Serious Sam: The Random Encounter is another addition to the franchise from the Indie Series kick-off to Croteam's next official Serious Sam game. The Random Encounter is set on a 2D plane with retro-pixelated graphics. The story is simple, the action is fun and there are plenty of enemies to contend with. It is a great addition for Serious Sam fans and retro-gamers alike.

Its fun at first, but by world 3-1 its gets impossible. Everything before 3-1 is great, but due to the massive jump in diffuclty, I can only recommend Serious Sam: The Random Encounter to the most Serious fans of the series.

If you're thinking that this cheap game will keep you going for a while, you are awfully wrong!

Serious Sam: The Random Encounter is a short Run'n Gun game that features only 9 levels which roughly take up to about 2 hours to beat. After finishing the campaign, the player will be given the opportunity to play in Endless Mode, but without any real goal in mind, this would just be a waste of time.

Because the game is so short, the developers made sure to make it extra hard just to frustrate the player into believing the game took a really long time to beat. This also has a big impact on it's replay value, because without featuring any kind of achievements or incentives(like extra content), a typical user will not want to have another go at it just for sheer fun.

Also atypically for any game, Serious Sam: The Random Encounter encourages you to die a few times during a level just to cheat and get a couple more copies of a weapon that can make the rest of the game a lot easier. This is sad and game-braking at the same time, but judging the overall quality of the game, it is something that should have been expected.

On a side-note, screenshots made in fullscreen mode will look weird. The picture will feature a small screenshot in one of the corners followed by a black background and some traces of any pop-ups that may have appeared on screen during this time.

Although I have bought it for about 0.80€ I still believe this game to be a terrible waste of money and I wouldn't recommend buying it. Please, do note that the game has compatibility issues on some systems, so make sure you can play it in case you want to pick it up.
