Episode 4 continued the trend started in 3: the story has slowed down, and the content is more about battle than dialogue. Violence over character development. There is some nice exploration available, and it's a good move that the overworld is no longer locked to a rails system.

Despite being significantly longer than 3 it feels like there was actually less content here. And what there is isn't that exciting. That makes this is a great example of a game that would've been improved by being shorter. It felt stretched too thin: a foregone conclusion to the series, made solely to wrap things up, not because anyone was interested in what was happening.

I much prefered playing as humans instead of these emotionless proxy creatures. They made me feel very removed from the combat. Since they were constantly changing and all had different powers it was a bit hard to keep track of them. So I locked down my party pretty early. I'm sure I didn't optimize very well, but I didn't really care as long as I could beat the bosses. Once you discover a couple overpowered strategies the system is a boring grind. Lather, rinse, repeat.

While there are some comical moments this final entry in the series leaves much to be desired. The ending fell flat, and didn't explain nearly enough. But it was an ending, and for that I'm grateful.

Worthy ending of this series, it keeps its original humour but in a new setting and with a combat system slighty different.
Personally, I consider the combat system the weakest trait, after a while it becomes a bit repetitive and boring, but overall it's a good game and there is no reason to skip it after playing the previous installments.

It is a decent continuation of "Precipice of Darkness 3". The story wasn't really compelling nor interesting, but the jokes and meta jokes really made up for it. I found the battle modes to be a bit challenging; you had to essentially 'test' out each ability/item combination at least once as the tooltips were less than useful. Additionally I found the battle music - specifically the electric guitar loop - to be infuriating. The battle sounds sometimes felt out of place as the sound sometimes didn't match up with the ability/tooltip - (ie.. a gun-shot noise on a non-gun ability).
I think the fantastic hidden gem in this game was the Fish Force song... that was absolutely great.

I'd say if you enjoyed "Precipice of Darkness 3", you will probably enjoy this 4th installment.

Go Fish Force!

This game is awesome. A fitting ending to the series.
The story picks up where the third game ended, as our casts thrown into the abyss they have to finish their job of destroying the world and finds out what happened to Tycho in the process.

The game itself is improving what the previous games did. Fixing the linearity of the previous game by adding world map and much bigger, unique and interesting dungeons. Music are AMAZING. Totally different from the 3rd game.
Characters now aren't involved in battle instead they use demonic spawns they found in the underworld to fight other monsters ala Pokemon. With characters acting as trainers and giving them osnters bonus in stats and skills as they leveled up. Giving some sorts of customization.

Jokes are great and the game is bigger and way more epic than the prevs one.
If you have finished the 3rd game this game is a must to play.

Якщо ви любите стару школу Final Fantasy ігор, швидше за все вам сподобається ця гра. Персонажі дивні, але це приємно.
Плюси:
+ Забавная Історія.
+ Бій схожий на "Active Time Battle" системи в Final Fantasy 4.
+ Чудовий сюжет.
+Чудова музика.
+ Легка для проходження(тому рекомендую починати з складності ветеран)
Мінуси:
-Гумору занадто багато, багато і діалогів з пустого в порожнє.

Висновок: Гра заслуговує уваги для любителів РПГ-жанру.
8/10

the combat becomes unbearably repetitive mostly because one is so keen to rather keep experiencing the funny dialogue, and humorous but also dramatic story, so you end up steaming along trying to get it all done in one go, but every path is blocked by constant fights.

fortunately you can speed thru the fights by decreasing the game difficulty to "easy" (at any time) and holding down a certain key (i forget which) to accelerate the animations. I do recommend this game, but play it on easy. Combat mechanic is just too meh to bother with.

thats not to say that the combat is awful, its just that there is about 15+ hours worth of combat and thats way too much for what ends up being recylcing the same abilities in the same order again, and again....and again.....and again.

...and again.

If you like 16-bit era RPG's and Penny Arcade humor, you can't really go wrong with these two games. They're each good for around 12-16 hours.

The combat can get a bit tedious as you wind up doing the same abilities repeatedly, but it is mixed up somewhat in the 4th title by having the focus switch between 2 parties through most of the game.

The story is cheese but the humor will see you through to the end. All in all they are well worth their cheap price.

This game has a Furry mode that makes the characters furries. See that girl there with the red hair? She becomes a fox. No joke. I'm serious. Tycho is a lion, and Gabe is a pink pony.

Laugh at me now, sure, but the thing is, anyone I know who would actually end up buying this game will probably be doing so for only that specific reason. That is just the demographic that I, for some reason, have ended up surrounding myself with. So, there's that.

That aside, it's a pretty funny game.

Awesome old-school style RPG, with simple mechanics, sick pixel graphics and epic battle and locations music. And dont forget hilarious outside-the-box characters who never seize to amaze with their bold actions and unexpected plot twists. Every one lacking some different RPG experience should pick and try this game or even the whole series.

PA'sOtRSPoD4 is the conclusion to the Penny Arcade 16-bit throwback RPG saga. It maintains the same look and gameplay as the previous game in the series. As with the previous game, the battle mechanics are unique and overall decent, plus there are tons of options and strategies to play around with. This time, Instead of having "pins" with special abilities that can be assigned to characters, you now have a zoo's worth of cutesy and/or weird Pokemon-esque monsters to do your bidding. Each monster has its own set of abilities and attacks, so you have no shortage of options to find a play-style and team combination that works for you. The main characters from the previous game all return and the story continues in the same strange and often amusing fashion. All is fine on that front, and the saga comes to a satisfying conclusion. Overall, the game seemed a bit easier than the previous one, but you have the option to change the difficulty at any time, in case you want a steeper challenge or can't get by a particular battle. In summary, this is a worthy conclusion to the series, assuming you have played and enjoyed the previous games. If neither of those things is the case, then I'm not sure I would recommend it unless you are a mega-huge fan of old-school RPGs and Penny Arcade. It's a passable game, but only has niche appeal. For existing fans of the series, I'd give it a solid B or B+, and for non-fans who are into 16-bit RPGs maybe a C or B-.

Definitely the best Zeboyd game to date. Major improvements over the the last 3 games. Much less linear than Precipice 3. Though still technically a linear RPG, there is an overworld that opens up more the further you get, and once again there are towns with people to chat with.

While the graphics are technically about the same as Precipice 3, there is much more detail, making lush environments and a really beautiful Overworld Map. Hyperduck did a great job with the music. Great game.

Had two problems though, that personally kept it JUST shy of FF6/Chrono Trigger levels of awesome:

1: Still using the same Main Menu and Victory/Level Up/Death resources. This drives me crazy because everything else in the game is so much better than their older games, and these would have not taken much time to update. It was ok on the other games, but honestly...it didn't even look good on BoDVII. It was an NES title but the Victory messages still looked like some crap they made in paint and tossed in there. The better the games look, the worse those messages look.

2: Few interactive objects. No examining Bookshelves or Dressers. Almost nothing you click has an effect, except for signs in one area, and few statues here and there. Big deal to me. *shrugs*

One of those games you must own if you are either fan of Final Fantasy or Pokemons. Loads of parodies like "Fish Force", old school RPG's, empty f**king chest. A game which costs only 4.99 euros is worth your time and money. I recommend this game and I can say it again : WORTH IT !!!.

P.s.Wait , why you are still reading this when you should save your money to buy this game ????

If you like the old school Final Fantasy games you will more than likely enjoy this game. The characters are odd but it's enjoyable.

Pros:
-Funny story
-Combat system and general gameplay are fast-paced
-Easy to play

Cons:
-This game is pretty long. As of the time of this review I have 19.7 hours on record and I don't think I'm even halfway through.
-The characters are odd in the way that it seems the creators were trying TOO hard to be original, although, the names can be entertaining.
-The humor is pretty bland and at times, annoying. The dialogue seems to carry on too long at times.

I know I gave three pros and threee cons, I didn't mean for that to seem like a bad review I only wanted to seem balanced so ill give it a rating.

Rating: 82/100
