Fish Force for life.

For 5 bucks it's definitely worth it's money in entertainment and fun. Would definitely suggest buying the 3 and 4 bundle for the 3 dollars extra.

To be perfectly honest? This game is sadly the worst of their 4 games so far. The New Monster system just didn't seem to work out, but also their Final Fantasy 3/6 [Depending on how you wanna see it] group switches always disrupted my game experience. In the end I grew accustomed to a group of monsters, and then readjustet again to another one, by itself no problem. But from basically Level 1. Jump, finally getting stronger - jump back yay this again.
The Story is very good.

The Battles? Jokes. If I have to think about how to defeat a group of monsters effectively, I have run into the problem of the HP. The HP grows for your enemies is gigantic. The battles in the end felt like a drag I had to do. If that happens in an RPG with Fighting as a focus? Ouch.I don't mind beating the hell out of mighty creatures that outdo me if I don't think and just act, but that was the story of every Battle. SMT Persona 3&4 keep me more entertained on Maniac/Very Hard [Respective for the game] and even though I sometimes just wanna throw my PS/P/VITA around, it's still fun. This game does the exact opposite for me. I've seen this as a problem in the Precipice of Darkness 3. The Battles are dynamic yes, the Waiting bar system has been done well and offers strategical insight to when to use Delay attacks or when to leave that alone. I don't want a game where I can beat up a monster in One Turn [Makes battles redundant] but if I have to fight Battles with monsters on a Boss LVL HP all the time, for basic rewards and this continously and all the time it's bad. The Boss battles were just a sign for me that I get closer to the finish of this game. I had a blast with it when the Fish Force song came up, I even enjoyed the first two Character Group jumps, but... the "Master" system where they gain extra stats for level ups and skill based on which Pokémon trainer - woops, slip of tongue - you use seems to be mysterious. The Badge system where you could swap your Class on the fly in the PoD 3 is better. By a lot. Experiment every fight! Here... not so much. "Catching" new pokédudes [a Grotesque reference] seems like it's hardly worth the time. This sums it up for the Battle segment.

The Map looks Beautiful and by far the best overworld they have ever produced. If only Cthulu could've looked this good, that would've been a delicious experience Visual wise. The Character models look good. The Music blows, and earlier mentioned Fish Force track took the cake. The Battle Theme is so-so. The other themes were fitting and good.
But going back to the Themes - if you know the Cthulu Battle theme, everything just pales in comparison, so this is biased.
Extending the Item system by new senseful things ; Great Job 10/10 Please do that again. It was cool in 3, and even better in 4.

All in all it's a very funny game, but as you can see the negative section weighs a lot heavier. BoD7/Cthulu/PoD 3 were all better by a big margin. I recommend playing the earlier mentioned games in succession to see how they evolved and then compare it to this. Otherwise I can't recommend it. *Prays for the well being of Cosmic*

Penny Arcade Adventures: On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness has a title that is immediately indicative of the brand of humour you'll find throughout. The writing in these games, courtesy of Penny Arcade writer Jerry Holkins, is everything you'd expect, but unfortunately you'll have to put up with a turn-based JRPG of sorts to see much of it.
In Ep4, they've streamlined 3's mechanics further, but they may have gone too far, and it's another hard slog through to the end of the series.

Even when I didn't play the previous titles on the series, I enjoyed this game a lot!, I really liked the item system, which avoid the accumulation of items till the end of the game. The battles are fun and can be challenging at some point (maybe not that much). The humor on the game makes you want to continue and see what will happen. It is a good old style rpg game with some interesting new concepts on battle and item system. Definitely a good game

The best game I have ever played in twenty years of computer gaming, bar none (and I have played a LOT of games). Eight years on I can still recall how profoundly that game gripped me, and I am not an overly emotional person. You will care about the characters, you will be moved, you will make choices that tell you more about yourself. It sounds trite, I know, but it really is that good. If only someone would make more of these...insightful, intelligent, devastatingly creative. Fallout is the only RPG to come close. A word of warning: You MUST read all the text, explore all the dialogue options, if you are to gain the most from the game. A decent intelligence and wisdom score is recommended.....although so is a decent score in everything else....the game does the best job of making usually superflous statistics genuinely useful that I have ever seen. Still very much worth playing.

Достойное продолжение третьей части.
Очень понравилось то, что разнообрали систему боя. По ходу продолжения сюжетной линии, некоторые монстры будут переходить под ваш контроль , что также увеличивает интерес.
Так же не оставили и без внимания всякие вкусняшки в виде пещер с сильными монстрами и различными ценными сундуками. Один раз возле сундука стоял сильный босс. После двух неудачных попыток я все-таки убил босса,и радостный пошел открывать сундук. Вы представляете, что было в сундуке? НИЧЕГО! Видели бы вы моё лицо в тот момент;) Разработчики тоже любят троллить обычных игроков;)
Каково было мое удивление,когда под моим контролем оказался сам Cthulhu, с которым прохождение сюжетной линии очень облегчилось (кто играл в Cthulhu saves the world, тот поймет).
Английский язык в игры поймет даже обыкновенный школьник.
Но сильно расстроило только одно НО:конец игры уж очень грустный лично для меня, не знаю как для других.
Рекомендую игру всем, не проходите мимо этого шедевра!

Игра так себе, видел и лучше, просто ходите, дерётесь с монстрами и всё. Никакого геймплея, графика вполне хороша (16 бит), сюжет абсолютно не понятен, и своих денег она не стоит. Можно купить, но эта игра для самых искушёных любителей RPG. 4/10

A very uniqe game to say the least. Definitely worth playing for a few bucks. I have to say I liked the fighting style better in 3 but the map is more broad in this game. This series seems to thrive on wacked out endings. Wish there was more to add but the game is just simple rpg funnness. I wouldn't say the humor was that great here but still an enjoyable game.

We are villains to our very core.
Heroism is out the door.
Saving people isn't what we do!

We hold our monstorbs to the sky!
(Ah, hahahah. Hahahaha.)
When they open, you will cry.
'Cause monsters will pour out.
And jump. On! You!

We are Fish Force! Trail blazers!
We are Fish Force!
We beat the odds, 'cause we tip the scales!

I'm Gary Gray, adoring throng.
I write all the Fish Force songs.
Yes, I do it using this, stupendous hand!
(I model, you know.)

I'm Mistletoe but I don't kiss.
Call me your battleness.
Nigiri-Chu's a big, part of our brand.
(Ah, yes, where's he gone now?!)

We are Fish Force! Trail blazers!
We are Fish Force!
We beat the odds, 'cause we tip the scales!
(Get it? Because you know, scales?)

Within my orb, the world is a memory.
All of my enemies, howl in the dark.
A crow man so lustrous, black feathers shining.
Black talons pining, to tear out my heart!

We are Fish Force! Trail blazers!
We are Fish Force!
We beat the odds, 'cause we tip the scales!

We are Fish Force! Trail blazers!

We beat the odds, 'cause we tip the scales!

The story and characters are pretty epic, and I jumped in with this one without playing the other 3 :X

Reminds me of older FF games.

Honestly it pains me to do this.

Zeboyd Games has a reputation for really grabbing the unholy trinity of RPGs: Interesting premise, well constructed gameplay, and dirt cheap price. In the finale of Rain-Slick, they pull off one and a half. While the game retains its bizarre unpredictable environment, fast-paced action, humorous writing, and gains a killer soundtrack, it overstays its welcome rather quickly. Which sucks considering this is the longest game in the series.

Early on you're introduced to the UnderHell, which fits considering the fact that virtually everything is unoriginal and dull to walk through. The enemies are as creative as ever but it's horribly boring to go through, which sucks since one of the aims was to give the game a more epic scale with the addition of a world map. The job pin system is also replaced with a party of four different monsters ranging from a bro rodent - or brodent - to a living vending machine, which hits and misses. Similarly to the job pin system of the last game, each monster has its own playing style, but none really match up to the rather impressive ideas that came from the mundane made awesome job system, which in case you forgot, weaponized shoemaking and planted gardens that caused various effects as time passed. Ultimately they play very simularly. The difficulty ramps up nicely as well and offers a good deal of challenge as time goes on, which is nice, though early game feels very simple.

Ultimately, Rain-Slick 4 just motivated me with the desire to play 3 again since I had a much better time with it. While this game offered a great amount of unpredictable moments, it's much more predictable. If this was 3 it'd be running around in circles, then as you thought it would keep running it'd do a backflip or start talking in an incomprehensible language, or randomly combust. 4 just keeps running, sometimes changing speeds and direction but it's still moving and you know it's going to move. This works out for it somewhat well as endgame is a lot more predictable compared to 3's endgame coming near out of nowhere, and it finishes very strong too. It's just a lot of the middle faultered greatly.

I recommend this game if you want to see the conclusion of the Rain-Slick series, are looking for a somewhat enjoyable RPG to play, or just enjoy Zeboyd Games' games. I mean it's cheap, you really can't beat that.
