About This Game

Following the success of the RPG-Parody Grotesque Tactics franchise, comes a spin-off nestled in the heart of a tropical zombie bevvy of beauties against the greatest hero of them all, conveniently titled: Holy Avatar vs. Maidens of the Dead

As the story goes...

...after the last great battle, our hero Holy Avatar decides to grab a little R&R with his Guild of Maidens on a Caribbean island he recently purchased and renamed “Holy Island”.

Upon arrival on the beach, he makes a gruesome discovery; numerous dead maidens, horribly mutilated, are scattered all over the island and what’s worse, they’re not staying dead! Holy Avatar must put down his mai tai and investigate this strange and unsettling turn of events. New adventures, new hazards and, did we mention the zombies… await our hero and his companions inside the dense woods and caves of this once idyllic island.

This is a spoilerfree review of a complete playthrough of the german version of the game, played with keyboard and mouse.

Man I would love reccomending this game. I loved the first two grotesque tactics games. As soon as I saw this I immediatly bought it. The main problem with the game is, that there is less everything. Basically this game is, what the first ( maybe the first two) chapter in one of the first two games is. Only that the first two games had a bunch of chapters coming after that. It has fewer characters (barely any actually), fewer quests/places to go to, way fewer items and is extremely short in general. This is basially a DLC and not a game. Whats worst though, is that the humor this time falls flat. Where usually there was dark humor and many references to pop culture, now there still is a bit of that left but just a tiny bit and the jokes are basically sexist/blonde jokes, which can be funny and only offensive to really sensible people if you do it right, but they didnt do it right. The jokes are performed so clumsily that its hard to give anyone more than a grin at best. Now if this was only 2 dollars I'd say go ahead and take it if you are a fan of the series, since the few characters that you use are still the ones you know and love and a tiny bit of story unfolds itself which might interest you, but for the price it is at right now I can only say stay away, its not worth it.

P.S: If you havent played the other games yet this game is just confusing and totally not worth your money on any sale.

Despite some awkard controls and low frame rates (despite the fact that my system is pretty darned fast), this is a fun RPG. The tile-based, turn-based combat is satisfying. The characters are charming and fun, despite and because of their silly dialog. Not a bad way to spend a few dollars.

I was actually pretty surprised at this game. I thought I would be immediately put off around five minutes into playtime, but I found myself quite surprised by it. While this certainly isn't the best game out there, it's got it's own unique charm - that I believe - should be given a chance.

I found the characters to be refreshing. They aren't super complex or deep, the opposite really, but I think it plays to it's strength. The main character is self-centered, misogynistic, and completely oblivious to it. The 'love' interest is flighty and hangs on the main characters every word, despite having to do his bidding - even at her own expense.

There are a ton of pop culture references in the game if you are familiar with them. (Things like that always tickle my fancy.) And the dialogue, while pretty limited, is pretty endearing. The graphics aren't anything to write home about, but I've found that because the environment is bright, made it pleasing for me to play.

Now this doesn't mean that there weren't a few things that didn't bug me. There were. Like how the camera liked to fly away when I moved my mouse. Or how certain dialogue no longer appeared in a box - which made it hard to follow. Then there was one point where there was a battle with scripted dialogue, but I moved and killed something before the scripted actions finished - effectively leaving me stuck and making me reload. Text will automatically scroll fast in the beginning until you change the speed. But none of this was actually enough to stop me from finishing.

So to be super honest, this game - while enjoyable - is definitely what I call a 'one and done'. So once you finish, you probably won't play it again. So I advise to not buy it at full price; wait until a sale.

Holy Avatar? - Holy s*** is this man sexistic and political incorrect.
The dark humor of this game is strange, but also unique. Imagine Holy Avatar comes with 3 of his favourite girls back to Holy Island to relax, which is btw a tropical island full of virgin slaves, goblins and elfes. First decision: Put on your red swimsuits and help me fighting the deadly hugging lovebears. So far so good.
Who's this guy with long blonde hair growing til his back, bearded + dark sunglasses? Idk but somehow he's is very very cool. Ah yes the story begins, when some of the island virgins transform into zombies. But how worse the situation will come and people are really dying here ... Holy Avatar has everytime a good story to tell or laughing about the stupidity of his virgin friends. There's a lot of cliche and accidently sexy moments happen during the story. Do you like giggeling babes that you must protect with your life? And they are so grateful to you ...

mmmh...I'm a big fan of GT1 and GT2, but this next episode wasn't the same thing.
First, the lack of english voices, but it was ok, I can understand german so was not so bad.
Turn based combat was also decent, even if too easy even at hard difficulty.
I've found the dialogues were too short, characters personality not developped and the game damn too short. Completed in 6 hours with all achievements. The humor was ok, but I laughed a lot more with GT1 and GT2. Overall I can't say I was disappointed, but this third episode was a "lite" version of the previous ones. I suggest to buy it on sale, 10Eur is too much for what will you get. 3/5

This game is alright. It doesn't stand out in any way visually or in gameplay and the dialogue is cheesy (which it is meant to be I know but it is not cheesy in a fun way) with a boring almost non-existent story. Basic turn based combat with a skill tree and a few weapons and such to collect. I played through this just because I enjoy this style of combat gameplay and the execution of everything may be run of the mill but it is smooth and without technical issues. There is a main story with a few side quests and you can roam around where ever but the game is pretty linear really no reason to revisit any areas.

Maybe I was just super bored when I loaded this up but I was mildly entertained at the time enough to barely recommend this. Buy it on sale or in a bundle?

This is a bad game. But if you liked the other Grotesque Tactics games, you already knew that. It follows suit quite well. It is a silly, poor taste humor, tactics game that takes nothing seriously. If you want to kill a few hours and get some laughs, go for it.

Fantastic value at the on sale price, even helped me improve my German "Jungfrau" ;0)
I advise you to switch on the German audio, or otherwise the text will scroll too fast, you will pick up the langauge eventually too!!!!
Only complaint is I would have liked it to last longer, but cannot fault it for the price I paid. Very well put together spoof, congratulations to the development team, good luck with the English release. Can we look forward to more titles in the future? Something with a dragon? You have to have a dragon ;0)

Very slow, terrible turn based combat. The path finding sucks.

Will check back when I have lower standards.


not much else.

It's bad... real bad.

The main menu barely functions; I can only save if I click the middle slots, no others. The humor is fairly weak- it get's pretty old to read "his humble semi-devine self" for the 50th time, especially when the text pops up off screen... Speaking of which, the camera is unbelievably bad as well so you're constantly scrolling around to see anything. The fights are easy and monotonous.

Absolutely awful. I didn't expect much, given my prior experiences with Grotesque Tactics, but geez, how do these games make it past the QA department? Oh, right. There isn't one.

Besides the rampant 80's style misogyny, which hey, I can overlook, the text crawls off the top whiz by without prompting as if the devs themselves can't be bothered to read it. Then you are thrust into a semi cel-shaded, kinda 3D isometric world that looks like a garage sale threw up on screen. I wouldn't mind that so much either if it weren't for the fact that moving around is like stumbling drunkebly through a house of mirrors.

Alright that's all I have patience for writing about this. Even if you love the art style and think the jokes are funny, this is a grindy, run-of-the-mill RPG. Save your money.

I have to change my original review from thumbs up to thumbs down. After a few hours one of my characters got bugged, and now has -47 strength. That means she can't even move during combat, let alone attack. Changing equipment doesn't help, and usually makes it worse. I consider this to be gamebreaking and a deal-breaker.

It's a shame, because I was liking the game up until then. Glad I got it cheap. I'd recommend avoiding this one.

Terrible top-down game with a badly-written, parody male protagonist. Combat is bad, characters are bad, graphics are bad and it's even got a terrible font choice. Do not play.
