A top-down 2D Action-RPG. The main draw of the game is how over-the-top the protagonist is. It's not uncommon for you to learn spells and get equipment by threatening some NPC and then after getting said upgrade, to kill them. The entire game is played out in this tongue-in-cheek manner and I found it amusing enough, though some will no doubt find it to be a bit try hard.

The artstyle is crude and bland at times and dungeons are a bit long and boring to traverse, but the dungeons have save points so replaying long stretches of them shouldn't be much of a factor. Puzzles are rare and quite simple when they show up.

The best aspect of Evil Quest gameplay-wise is how easy it is to become a walking flamethrower. Magic regenerates over time, so if you level-up and make it a point to pump intelligence, by the halfway point of the game you can constantly spam spells as you walk around and it trivializes most enemies. I don't find this a downpoint since combat is rather simplistic and mowing down enemies with various spells is fun enough.

The game is pretty short, you probably won't end up with more than a half-dozen hours at most on a playthrough, though that's about right and it ended just as I was tiring of it a bit. I had fun with this and the price point puts you in position of not having much to lose by taking a chance on it.

EvilQuest is a charming game. A must have for every pixel lover. Finally, a game that does not use the old concept of good vs bad, but lets you be the villian instead.

The game features a very lame, but original, storyline. This storyline combined with the medieval setting, old-school graphics, the random texts you exchange with NPC's, retro music and sounds with completely random switches between situation-oriented music, are what makes the game into the hilarious thing it is. It's even fun to just wander around the game world without following the storyline.

Despite the fact that the storyline seems insignificant and easy, you still have to focus on advancing through the plot. Because the game seems very easy at first you will probably end up just walking through the game as if it were a stroll in the park. However, if you do this, you will almost inevitably soon find out that the park is full of landmines, with which I mean that you will get stuck at some point because you did not pay enough attention earlier on.
This concept of going easy on you to let you soften up, and then beating the crap out of you, if you do, is most definitely a plus.

Of course, like any game, this one is not perfect. A pretty significant letdown was that the towns were much the same and had a lot of copy-pasted elements. Another negative point is that there is very little variation in your conversations with NPC's.

This game, costing only €1,99, gets you great value for your money. Don't be a cheap ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ and wait for it to be on sale, it is already a good enough deal.

9/10

Really fun game for the price. Reminds me a lot of Crystalis on the NES. Overall it isn't too hard but the bosses are a nice challenge. Worth picking it up. :D

Pretty simple mechanics, some funny moments, overall I really liked it, if the trailer is appealing to you it's a pretty safe bet.

The developer is clearly a fan of the great classic "Crystalis" as can be seen by the gameplay, soundtrack, and system.

I really admire the retro-throwback feel. As for the plot, it is amusing and it is nice to play as the villain for a change. It does get overly repeditive to always play the heroes in this sort of genre so I consider it a breath of fresh air overall.

For a mere 2 bucks, this game is one of the best deals for fans of the classic action/rpg's from the days of old.

Well done, well done.
