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.

As a spin-off Holy Avatar vs... stays true to the formula presented by Grotesque Tactics: That is, it is a light-hearted and funny Strategy RPG. As with GT this one refers to many popular games and laughs are around every corner. The major difference from the main series however, is the fact that the player this time controls "his semidevine humble self Holy Avatar" directly on his quest to rid his holiday island from a zombie maiden infested plague.

Gameplay wise, this game keeps it simple. The story and progression is linear most of the time. Only when one is mid-way through the story, order of completing some quests becomes optional.

The battle system will be immediately familiar and proofs to be not very deep. It is clearly not aiming for hardcore S-RPG players, which means even below-average skilled players like me can win the battles and enjoy the story.

In the end I can recommend this one to everybody who enjoyed GT 1 & 2, because you will definitely have a good time here.
The same goes for newcomers who are looking for a parody of popular games and familiar gaming cliches. Just don't expect too much of challenge!!

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 ...

It's a lot like the first two games, quite a fun adventure! Turn based RPG goodness mixed with plenty of humor.

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

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.

Cell shaded RPG with a corny story base behind it. Rescue maidens, collect this, kill that. Humour however is done to a standard not normally seen games of this genre since the developers last hit with grotesque tactics. If you enjoy turned based strategy with a quicker based story and RPG progression for characters. THis game may well be right down your alley. Growing up in the era of leisure suit larry and maniac mansion, this humour hit right on the funny side 90 percent of the time. Casual or long gaming sessions, I think this could be a great way to pass the time. And for the price, it's a definate recomendation from me. Played 2hrs so far. Enjoyed every corny minute of it!
