Più che discreto dungeon crawler d'inspirazione anni '80 caratterizzato da un stile grafico molto originale. Il gioco è divertente e piuttosto longevo MA ha una serie di magagne che gli avrebbero fatto meritare il pollice giallo (se ci fosse): Prima di tutto il loot è quasi completamente casuale, in certi scrigni potrete trovare la spada di Greyskull +500 come una scopa (true story), perdipiu si può salvare di fronte allo stesso scrigno e ricaricare a piacimento, non va. Il combattimento a turni è interessante ma molto ripetitivo, una volta trovata la formula giusta difficilmente farete qualcosa di diverso. Per gli amanti del genere.

P.S: Al momento ben 7 achievement sono impossibili da prendere causa bug.

Do you like old school Wizardy? Do you like old school RPGs? Do you like cheap RPGs? DO YOU LIKE RPGs?

If you answered "Yes lawd PRAISE THA PAPER!!" then I'd say you're mocking me.. but if you responded "OH HELL YES" to any of the above, then you will enjoy Paper Sorcerer. It's simplitic yet satisfying. As controller throwing difficult as you wish for the ultimate challenge. Playing the role of an anti-hero is a pure delight, and I would suggest this game to any of my friends.

Yes, the visual style is great. Yes, it's nice to see an old-school turn-based dungeon crawler being made. Yes, it's really impressive that it's pretty much all the work of one guy. Mad props to him.

But none of that changes the fact that Paper Sorcerer is a glitchy mess with serious balance issues. That these glitches and balance issues remain after the game has been out for so long is surprising. There are many game-crashing bugs - seriously, if you ignore this review, save often - especially before you try to leave your room in the game's town area, as there's a glitch there that will randomly crash the game. And the first three bosses will kill you, while the rest will meekly let you by - one of them will literally refuse to fight you.

What really killed the game for me, though, and what prompted me to write this review, is that there's this neat minigame within the game where you're solving puzzles and opening secret doors throughout the dungeon, in anticipation of a big payoff near the end of the game. That payoff, the thing you put in the extra hours for, the thing you put your characters at risk for, is glitched, such that when you finally get to the end, you can't get it. When you get to the final set of doors that the big reward lies beyond, the game forgets you have the key to those doors. You get nothing - no in-game reward, no achievement, nothing. From perusing the forums, this is a huge bug that has been around for a long time, and which the developer has refused to fix.

Glitchy, unbalanced, plays all of its neat tricks right up front, wears out its welcome. I'm disappointed.

While the game's a little buggy and there's a few balancing issues (I'M LOOKING AT YOU CELLBLOCK 3 BOSS) this RPG's really enjoyable. Not too grindy, and you get enough "summons" (party members) to vary your party and not make the game stale. Definitely worth the full price of $5.

I am extremely impressed with this old-school dungeon RPG that it's been taxing on sleep as its "one more level" kind of game. While its old-school turn based combat would seem boring its unique Skill & Energy system changes everything, so you no longer mash Attack and instead encourages you to find combinations of debuffs, buffs, effects, and damage type that is very satisfying. Love the minion collection and random loot with some great Skills & Spells, as well as the set monster placement with only random encounters in a "special optional (but recommended) dungeon levels".

The art style blends well into the creative narrative of being trapped in a book, while the music is quite fun and as soon as it becomes repetitive new music enters at the right time. The puzzles are not overly difficult and the writing is simple but never becomes a bore to read.

My only want is more information on my enemies & the effects I put on them.
If I knew how good it was it would be worth the normal $5 for a couple weeks of play, but I scored it in a Humble Bundle and it is easily my favorite in the pack.

Would be willing to get trapped in magic book again: 10/10
