Reviews

“I’m really impressed with Driftmoon. Not just because it’s such an impressive indie project, but because it was a memorable RPG in its own right. A fun, light-hearted game, with a more serious story running beneath it. And once it’s over, there’s still more to do.”

“It's been a long time since I enjoyed a game as much as this one. Think Quest for Glory and Frayed Knights mixed and blended together and you'll have some idea of what to expect.”

So you get back from vacation to find everyone in town turned to stone including your mother. Your father has been taken by the evil King Ixal and it’s your job to save everyone. Hey why not, everyone wants to be a hero right.

Driftmoon is an action RPG somewhat like the old school classic Zelda. You return to your home to find the whole village turned to stone except for one of your friends. He tells you all what happened and that your father was taken hostage by the evil King Ixal. Your father has one of the crystals needed to raise the dead and become immortal.

Collect weapons and armor, craft items, and complete missions to help level up. Each level you get one stat point and one skill point to build your character stronger. It was pretty fun to play for a while but I grew tired over time with the mass amount of reading in the game. Enemies also became tedious in fighting since it was mostly a small variety of different types. This is understandable though as it’s not a big budget game.

Overall the game is worth checking out. The story was pretty good and had some laughs and can give you plenty of play time with the main game. There is also editing tools to make your own mods. There were a few mods out for it when I played but nothing that peeked my interest and I also did spend any time creating any because I’m just not skilled enough for that.

So, this was another in a long list of games I own that came from some bundle or another. It looked pretty cool though, so I thought I would give it a try, and I am glad that I did.
It's not the sort of game that will blow your mind, but what it does, it does well, and is the true definition of a solid game. An RPG that has similarities to Zelda-esque games as far as art style and even mapping ot an extent, but without really trying to be that at all. In fact, I would say this game does a good job of establilshing its own identity, even though you will find it to be similar to other games. You are basically witnessing the developers influneces, but enjoying their own vision.
The game incoporates a lot of pop culture references. The Holy Grail references will be the most identifiable, but there are plenty.
The story itself is solid (pretty much the "a great evil has entered the world and you must try to save the world and everybody in it" type tale), as is the gameplay. The combat is fun and real time, there are plenty of traps and some decent puzzles. It's really a nice (pleasant even) game that does everything right and really nothing wrong, without trying to be something it's not,and manages to do all that without falling into the trap of doing more than it should. In a way, it is hard to describe this game because it is so uniformly solid, that, while not a great game, is in fact a very good game and one worthy of your attention. It took me about 9 hours to finish, and I'm not the fastes gamer I imagine you could finish it in under 4 if you really wanted to, and weren't worried about completing everything.
I recommend trying it out. I think it deserves 7 out of 10, and probably 74 out of 100.

Driftmoon is, to put it plainly, too charming to resist. An extended love letter to Ultima VII and other adventure/RPGs of its era, it may not look like much, but it's a game with plenty of soul. While the plot isn't particularly amazing or original, the writing is consistently very light-hearted, genuinely funny, and manages to make even minor characters unique and memorable in just a handful of lines. It's rather short, but manages to feel like a complete, fulfilling experience all the same. Quite lovely.

Am currently enjoying my playthrough of this game. Driftmoon reminds me of earlier RPG games, with a twist of Harry Potter and Little Big Adventure thrown in. I have read reviews criticising the game's soundtrack and graphics, which in both cases were not an issue for me. I wouldn't expect a game with AAA graphics for the price but everything here is well crafted and works. I really like the humour within some of the characters and the item names. The dev(s) have known when to use sound thoughtfully, and there are no annoying voice overs either. It is text-laden in character dialogue, i'll admit to skipping a little of this in order to advance!

The puzzles are simple but make you think, and inventory is well organised borrowing from a Torchlight style UI. The only big criticsm I have is that one of the game's useful mechanics (being able to move items around with your mouse to find hidden items) isn't really mentioned in the initial area of the game - I stumbled over this by accident, and would have liked to have known from the start. Lots of secrets, puzzles to solve, questing, levelling up and cool characters. In a sale, snap it up - a really nice game for a quiet moment.

An old style RPG that is worth a look. It has good charcterisation and quests, seems family friendly from what I have played.
I give a quick overview of the game/ review here if you are intrested:
