Удивительное дело: казалось бы - выпускать плоскую 8-битную RPG в 2014-ом году на РС - весьма странно. Ведь сейчас в ходу последние достижения 3D и потрясающая графика, новые идеи в плане развития игровых персонажей и сюжетов, а здесь - плоская линейная RPG, по виду очень похожая на игры времён DENDY/SEGA, и чем она может заинтересовать ? Однако может ! Хотя бы тем, что это ностальгия, но не только. Здесь всё просто, начиная от системы прокачки заканчивая оружием, бронёй и заклинаниями - но тем она и прекрасна, не надо рвать волосы на заднице в поисках путей прохождения и новой экипировки, пошёл набил монстров, кои обновляются при выходе из локации, да и просто по прошествии небольшого времени или ухода из определённой области и возвращении в неё, и купил всё что нужно. Исключения составляют вещи, которые можно найти в сюжетных локациях. Некоторые вещи валятся из монстров, такие как средства лечения например. С заклинаниями ещё проще - самые мощные даются за выполнение сюжетных заданий, а в этой игре они все сюжетные, посему не пропустите. С оружием то-же самое. Система развития проста до безобразия - 4 параметра и определённое количество очков за каждый уровень, остаётся только решить - кто у вас будет, воин-дамагер или маг, и тратить очки на соответсвующие ветки. Ну и конечно-же не стоит забывать о невероятной харизме и сюжете про эпичного злодея, стремящегося отомстить всему миру. В общем несмотря на простоту и убогую графику игрушка великолепная, и истинные ценители классики проведут за ней немало приятных часов !

Игра, не смотря на свою простоту и дешевизну, интересная. В игре разворачивается интересная история с неплохими, хоть и короткими, диалогами. Игра короткая, но это скорее плюс, т.к. сам игровой процесс не очень разнообразен. Всем любителям жанра понравится.

Evil Quest is more or less a homage to the classic NES game Crystalis. I'm sure this little nugget of info has been mentioned by many other reviewers, all the same it's worth mentioning.

Homages are a mixed bag. This is how they usually end up: "Wow! This reminds me of my favorite game...except worse." Evil Quest isn't as good a game as Crystalis, but it's still okay. Evil Quest is about Galvis. What does he want to do tonight? He wants to destroy the world. He kills everyone that stands in his way, and even murders anyone that annoys him. Like any other villain, this guy also talks too dang much. While I can't imagine a mute evil-protagonist working out, by the end of the game I was sick to death of Galvis and his speeches.

As with most action-RPGs, Galvis starts with a pitiful knife and dirty rags, and his enemies are mere rats and low-ranking grunts. By the end of the game he's wielding the legendary chaos axe and slaying dragons & demons with no trouble. Getting to that point involves the typical town -> overworld -> dungeon progression. The dungeons are standard stuff, lots of respawning enemies, some treasure, sometimes a puzzle or two. It's nothing really involving, but I guess that's to be expected from a game that harkens back to simpler times.

The only bothersome aspect is that with every level-up, you're given points to distribute. Having stats for HP and DEF seems a bit superfluous, especially on hard difficulty where everyone hits like a truck. Boosting STR and MAG is more effective, mainly because the faster you can kill something, the less chance they have of damaging you. Plus if you want all the achievements you have to focus on two attributes (this will take two play-throughs), because the level-cap will keep you from maxing out all four.

This game can be really easy, with much of the difficulty being player-imposed. By this I mean you have things on harder on yourself (don't buy healing spells, don't use potions, etc) to remain challenged. However, the final bosses have some cheap attacks that are nearly impossible to dodge, so it's probably not the best idea. A sequel is in the works so the issues involving difficulty should get ironed out.

What I'd really like to see out of the sequel to Evil Quest is A) better art-direction B) better plot C) a more involving quest. An old-school bum like myself probably shouldn't care about A or B but they along with C are why I consider Crystalis the better game (well, all that and better difficulty balance). Evil Quest was originally an Xbox Live Indie Game and it shows. The sprite-work is serviceable but not in any way unique, and just looks really banal.

C gets it's own paragraph because it's the most important of the three. A good quest isn't just finding powerful weapons and killing massive enemies. Crystalis gets a lot of credit for changing things up beyond "kill monsters & get money". In one area you could ride around on a dolphin, there was a town run entirely by women, and you had to use a metamorphis spell to talk to their queen, there was also a zombie-infested town, and so on. In a lot of ways Evil Quest is too similar to traditional action-RPGs, which results in missed opportunities.

There aren't many games where you play somebody who is actually evil. It seems like there would be a lot of cool methods to progress the plot, like using sabotage, threats, murder, etc. Take Kefka from FF6 for example, imagine playing as him. At one point you poison the kingdom of Doma, later on you assist the emperor in fooling the resistance, then not long after that stab the Emperor in the back and take all of the god-like power for yourself. The rest of the game could be spent trying to stay one step ahead of the heroes, slowly picking them off one by one (or in parties).

All that said, it's not really a huge deal. As a homage throwback whateveryoucallit title, Evil Quest is solid. It has the basics down, and a sequel could turn out to be pretty spectacular with enough creativity injected into it.

Evil Quest was a purchase I made not expecting too much from it, however after just completing it, it was well worth the ride. It's a nice change to play as the bad guy and want to take over and destroy the world for once. This classic SNES type RPG game did everything right for me. It doesn't take itself too seriously, I mean, c'mon, you have to kill God....

Towards the end of the game, I pretty much ripped through any enemies in one shot, you can collect some pretty overpowered spells, and if you are like me, and stacked Intellect to get a higher mana pool, you could simply AOE through most zones, mopping up the experiance as you went.

The game is actually pretty simple. As long as you read the story, you won't find yourself wondering where to go next as it is quite clearly set out for you. There isn't any side quests to complete, however there are a number of achivements you work towards.

I would highly recommend this game if you are looking for something a little different and only want to spend £1,60, you can't go wrong with this five hour long title.

I have really been enjoying this game. It's number 1 on my backlog (first game i'm going to complete as I work down the list)! Tons of fun. The art is kind of iffy and it's REEEEALLY ♥♥♥♥ing edgy but it's a nice story and I can see where it's going. It's almost heartwarming, in a way. Combat is your typical ARPG top-down combat. You're basically on a cross-axis where you can only move up, down, left and right. I recommend it.

I really enjoyed playing Evil Quest. It sort of reminded me of some of the older Zelda games in the sense that you charge up your attack, and release like you do in say Link to the Past.It has some minor rpg elements implemented too. You more or less go through each dungeon killing mobs, and then fight a boss to move on to the next area. I had so much fun on my first play through I actually did a second one to get the rest of the achievements I was missing. It's not an overly difficult game, but it is a fun casual game to play in between longer games. It took me about 10-12 hours for my first play through exploring, and grinding. My second took less than 8 on the hardest difficulty as magic, and health as my main stats. It's worth playing through at least once.

I came across this game compleatly on acadent, and decided it was worth picking up becaues the price was low enough to take a chance on. TBH ive thought for a while now games where you get to play the bad guy are quite rare, and its a style id like to see done more often. While this game is not the most polished or perfect game, it is very fun to play through, it gives nice chalanges, has an art style while not amazing is quite pleasent to look at, and the gameplay works well for what it has, and has no real glitchs that ive seen. It is made to be remincent of old school JRPGs from the snes era and it does a good job invoking that. its a very fun game thats well worth your time :)

A really fun game where as the twist is you play the villain on a mission to kill god and destroy all of creation. The villain however isn't that likable as a character as he doesn't seem to have any reason for this beyond he hates the world and feels that he needs to take revenge on it.

Sadly there isn't much more deph to it besides being a ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ and the character is not too likable, however the game itself is a lot of fun.

Fun game. It's an SNES-style action RPG, so if you've played Secret of Mana, the core gameplay is similar to that. It builds upon that formula with more options for customization, including equipment and spells. Well-executed concept.

In short, it's a good game for it's price. But it's just too easy.

Story:
Not great, it's just the same as a hero saving the world - In reverse! It's about a villain destroying the world. It's predictable, but it's not bad.

Graphics and Music:
Aren't great either. The graphics represent all they should, but I feel like it's too plain. The designs are good, though, the bosses look awesome. The music is your usual MIDI medieval track. Nothing too shiny.

Gameplay:
Super simple. I've finished the game in the Hard difficulty in the exact registered play time that I have. In the boss battle, I've only died once, and that was in his first form, just because of a little fumble...
There aren't many secrets, and that is a bad thing for me. Just make sure you explore everything and you'll get all the equipment and spells. I've only used the heal spell through the entire game, also.

Game Entertainment:
The hours that I put into this game didn't feel empty. It's a fun game, but sometimes you feel like an area could have been shorter. But the final boss battle is going to counterbalance any bad things in the game - It's great.

Overall:
I rate it 9/10. It's not like you can ask more for this price! Just needs more secrets, filling some empty areas, a better looking grass, and it would have been perfect!

A fun little game where YOU ARE THE BAD GUY!

Graphics:
The graphics are colorful, but simple looking. All look handdrawn in a paint program, but the detail is good. All of the sprites, special attacks and certain backgrounds are well animated. But the bright colors do get hard on the eys after a while.

Sound:
The sound is decent, but the music kinda bland and reused in some parts. Not really memorable.

Control:
The controls were decent enough and I had no problems with it.

Gameplay:
Despite it's look, the gameplay is good. You get MANY different attacks to use, from charging your wapon for a LoZ-style ranged attack to screen-wide magic attacks. You can also set certain items for a quick slot of easy use during heated battles. Also, most battles are a challenge without being cheap. Never do you feel the need to grind to beat the boss because if you just kill the enemies you see on the way, you will be fine. But money will be an issue when you want (and need) certain spells and armor. The Cure spells are a MUST! But most of the important attack spells are given to you. The story of this game is, despite it's premise, very hilarious and the writing had me smiling.

This game made me enjoy being an evil ♥♥♥♥♥♥. I like that.

EvilQuest is a satisfying revival of action-adventure RPGs of the 8- and 16-bit. This game reminded me most of Crystalis on the NES, though it also has some similarities to Lagoon on the SNES. The map designs are similar as are some mechanics (jump boots.) Early on, the combat is fairly easy, though you may fail if you attack recklessly. Positioning and timing are most important for success, but, unlike the earlier action-adventure RPGs, enemies appear to have predictable cooldowns on their projectiles and abilities, making it far less likely you'll get surprised.

The controls are responsive, however you can perform only one action at a time like in the older games previously mentioned. The one thing that sets it apart is that you can move and turn your character while attacking, allowing you to control quarter- or half-circle sweeps with your weapon; otherwise, every attack is a forward jab. Opponents can do this also, which can catch you off-guard when flanking a foe.

While formulaic, it's a tried-and-true recipe. I recommend this to anyone who enjoys the genre and art style.

Simply put, if you have fond memories of the 16-bit generation & its RPGs, this RPG will scratch that proverbial nostaliga-fueled itch for you. Now, hre's the twist - as the name suggests, rather than playing the role of the hero trying to save the world, you play the role of the bad guy. Sounds interesting to you? Well, pick this game up then!
