A great sequel to what was previously a newgrounds series of games, that continues with its original ideas and gameplay, whilst providing a fun RPG experience, with puzzles and the like, including a funny dialogue placed in to the game. And, well, jiggle physics yo.

So lemme just get some facts and biases straight.

The first game I ever played from Matt was Brawl Royale - a simple flash game that's basically just a reflex game to see how fast you can press a button when prompted. The animation, for me at the time, was pretty dang good and he gained a fan from that moment on. I've played every other game that came out since then, other than the Bullet Heaven ones, and I loved all of them.

If you ever get to read this, Matt, I gotta say thanks for entertaining me for all these years. Hopefully, EBF5 will blow EBF4 right out the water.


Tl;dr - I'm a fanboy and this review may be a little biased. Also, this is my first ever review.

NOW ON TO THE REVIEW!


REVIEW:
This game was originally a flash game that was (and still is) free to play on sites such as Kongregate and Newgrounds. The only real differences between the free version and the Steam one/Kongregate's premium one are the additional weapons, armors, and badges and Battle Mountain. This is a little underwhelming for something worth $12 dollars, I have to admit.

If you've played any traditional JRPG games before, that's pretty much what this game plays like. This may be a turn-off for some, but for fans and newcomers to the genre, I think you'll be in for a treat.

The characters are all unique and interesting in their own way - even the NPCs, while not really memorable, have some choice bits of dialogue. As for the dialogue and text in the game, it's very humorous with loads of little nods and jabs to all things video games.

The plot is pretty linear, so NG+ is really only for maxing out whatever skill you didn't learn and trying out some new tactics.

...That's all I can think of at the moment while typing this up so...

Overall, 8.5/10 - needs more boobs

Epic battle fantasy 4 is a slightly challenging rpg. It is a remake of a flash game that was later greenlit. This game makes you think more than most current and past gen rpgs. Buffs and debuffs matter a lot in this series. More rpgs should expect you to play smart, or reward you as much as EBF4.

To think, this game started life as a flash game on Kongergate:

I'm not kidding about that statement, it baffles me to think that this game is flash. I've been playing this game with very little previous knowledge of the series and I've been loving it to pieces. EBF4 is a lovechild/parody of games like FInal Fantasy and other turn-based RPG's. So right off the bat, if you like those games then you will most likely love EBF4. Not a fan of JRPG's like I am? Then continue reading as this review will be based on that mentality.

So first thing you may ask is "What if I'm not great at RPG's?" No worries, EBF4 has multiple difficulty settings so you can either worry about resistances and stats or just use the flashiest move you have. So what is so different about this game that I shoud considering it worth my money? Well the game is not serious, like at all. The game is part parody after all so the game is very funny and makes a ton of jokes at RPG's and gaming overall. The 4 charecter's are all really interesting and have a ton of good lines. Other than that, there is the previously mentioned simple but intuitive RPG combat mechanics. Most of your attacks are in the form of spells and trust me when I say there are plenty of spells to customize your movesets out. The game is very straight foward too, NPC quests is are short and sweet and there are only two optional areas to visit. Yet despite the linar design, there is a ton of replay value. The main story is about 8-12 hours but you can play through the game multiple times with harder foes and do other stuff like collect all of the medals and weapons. To tie all of the game together there is simplistic but charming art style and one of the best soundtracks to a game ever, I'm not even kidding when I say that last part.

So overall, would I recommend this game to newbies of the RPG category, maybe. Would I recommend this to long-term RPG fans, definetely. Would I recommend this to those who just want to play a silly and fun idie RPG to enjoy, yes. The game is cheap and I guarentee you'll like it.

The Epic Battle Fantasy series started out as just a bunch of flash game you could play on Newgrounds and Kongregate back in the day (and you still can). For the longest time, they had stayed in the top rated flash games for both of those sites, and for good reason. This series is pretty obviously inspired by them, and if you're a fan of turn based strategic combat in RPGs similar to old school Final Fantasy, you'll love this game.
If you're on the fence on whether or not you want to buy this, you can simply go on Kongregate or Newgrounds right now and play the free version. Now you may be wondering, "If I can play this game for free, why should I buy the Steam version?" Well other than supporting a series made by a developer who does both the coding and the artwork, with a quality soundtrack by Phyrrna (aka HalcyonicFalconX) that comes for free upon purchasing it, the Steam version comes with additional content, including a new area with tougher challenges that yields extra equipment to help you out on your main journey, not to mention being able to keep your save files on the Steam cloud. I also recommend Epic Battle Fantasy 3, which is not on Steam, and is completely free.
Now this game does have some intermittent performance issues when it comes to frame rate, but you can toggle the quality to deal with it, and other than that, I believe this is well worth the money. I usually wait for games to be on sale, but I bought this game as soon as it was available on Steam, and I don't regret it one bit.

This game is a lot like Final Fantasy series with some fun elements. It has a lot of quests to do and items to find. You will use some environmental spells a lot in this game. Some people say it's a bit repetitive but i dont think so due to the fact that there are many different tactics and gears avaliable and it has a large variety in environments. Overall it's good value for a small cost.

This game is addictive as hell, and is pretty funny. The end gets a bit grindy and repetetive, but the game stays fun and addictive for the most part. Its fairly simple and easy to learn and play.

This is a fun JRPG that doesn't mess around with any of the nonsense most of the newer ones have. If you can get over the cutsey graphics, it's a great time to play a JRPG in the classic turn-based style.
