This game is a funny joking, breaking the forth wall, RPG. It's all good fun in the world of EBF4, with jokes coming left and right, and all being masterfully crafted so that none fall flat you won't stop laughing. Enough about how funny the game is, let's talk about gameplay, the game focuses on the goal of collection and completion rather than harsh and numerous battles, the creator has also made it so that character's not battling will also gain experience so that you won't have to grind for any other character at a later time. The collection will included things such as: chest locations, random drops for armor and weapon upgrades, those weapons and armor themselves, certain creatures to fill that damn bestiary, ect. All battles are fair and equal as long as you do a little side searching here and there to gain a little extra exp. Jokes, fair battles, and no grinding sounds like a good game to me.

Randomly found this game and seeing that it had JRPG elements, i investigated further. I Watched a few gameplay video's, read the full description, but i found myself still not convinced that it was of worth. I Thought to myself, " just go for it".. i did not regret it one bit. I Am so addicted.

How this game was created, was so thoughtful to details in the terms of gameplay. From witty dialog that pops up but does not get in your face, the excellent setup of the battle system, puzzles, loads of achievements to keep a player occupied, to even the collectable elements. The game is just so thoughfully pieced together.

I Would recommend this game to anyone who loves the JRPG genre, and everyone else alike.

I played kupo's games since 2009. Yes, 2009, the beginning of the Epic Battle Fantasy Series. That was even before I knew about Steam. I played the hell out of those games and still to this date, they're amazing.

It is one of my favorite, or I can say my favorite Series of RPG Gaming. I am glad to see that on steam, because I wouldn't remember the old times, when I didn't saw the Steam Notification about EPF4's release.

I love this game, but sadly, I cannot record it, because of the lagspikes, that happen when I move my mouse. I hope, that there will be some solutions to that problem. Maybe someday, I make a full video about this franchise.

Kupo, you did make me happy with it and I hope, that you will do that in the future too with more EPF. I highly recommend it for everyone, who loves turnbased combats with a mix of humour.

What can I say, this game is one in a million. I truly enjoyed it from start to finish. The music, graphic, effects and light hearted story deserves a 10/10. And the last boss..eh..let's just say its no push over. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who wants to enjoy a classic styke rpg that's has a perfect balance of gameplay, difficulty and story progression. Oh and it also has moe haha.

Fun, great, and good old turn based play. It has a lot of fun jokes inside of it, as well as a very interesting story. The gameplay itself can bring back nostalgia to those of us who prefer the old final fantasy like turn based games. I highly recomend this game.

you know what i like about this game? there are almost NO FLAWS. the gameplay is addictive and the gui is well put together. the music is really good. i like the artstyle (especially the cutscene art). and the characters are charming memorable and humorous. not for everyone, but still worth the pricetag for me at least.

It's very good it's slightly like it's kongregate variant except you have the premium pack and a few other things I don't know how to really explain it since I haven't see it all. It's a good game though the newgame+ for steam version makes it really fun. 8/10.

No tengo mucho tiempo registrado de juego.. Pero me siento satisfecho por la compra que hice

ya que la mecanica del juego es simple, sencilla con personajes divertidos. Muchos logros que vas desbloqueando con forme avanzas y tantas habilidades que puedes usar

no es un juego de niños aunque se vea asi

si estas pensando en comprarlo animate, y si no quieres "arriesgarte" comprarlo en las ofertas o bien juega la version gratuita ---------> http://www.kongregate.com/games/kupo707/epic-battle-fantasy-4

las canciones del juego son una de las mejores cosas que tiene

deberian de vender el soundtrack como lo han hecho con otros juegos :P

RECOMENDADO

Was a great buy on sale and heck of a nice surprise.

The gameplay is simple, but very enjoyable in that "old JRPG meets quirky environment" kind of way.

Really good game indeed!
As a big fan of Turn based RPGs and RPGs in general I would really recommend this game. With it's great mix of commedy and references as well as some strategy for the harder battles on epic.

It's a great game. I've played all of the Epic Battle Fantasy games, and this one is my favorite. Despite my dislike of uncouth humor (and there is quite a bit of uncouth humor), I find this game to be quite enjoyable. And there is also humor that I do like, so there's that. There's more content here than you can get play in any short period of time.

It's a FInal Fantasy-esque game, so if you are familiar with that, it is easy enough to figure out. Click on this, click on that, enemies get exploded/shot/sliced/arrow'd/. Level up skills with skill points. Use items.

If I were to make one complaint, it would be that it doesn't have a Mac version. The dev said that it won't be happening for a while, so if you don't have a Windows computer, you might be out of luck.

Matt does, in fact, like swords. Even if they aren't actually swords.

Amazing game. Light hearted-humor, tons of breaking-the-fourth-wall moments. Great combat system with good item and skill level ups. Story is decent, no surprises but keeps you entertained. Fantastic music both when walking and while in combat. If you are a fan of turn-based RPG games, definitely get this.
