Un petit jeu sympa qui ne demande rien à personne.
On controle un chevalier un peu pommé a travers un monde peuplé de tribus aborigènes et d'espagnol en quête de conquête. Le jeu vous demandera de faire des choix, d'aider ou non tel personnage et va influencer vos relations avec ces derniers.
Un jeu de plateformes avec des skills a gagner, des niveau a augmenter, de l'équipement à acheter, le tout dans une ambiance plutot paisible sans grande trame scenaristique et sans grande musique ... dommage le jeu aurait gagner a etre un poil plus profond ...

En bref bon jeu de plateforme, avec une ambiance assez plate certe mais aussi avec un coté rpg / jeu de rôle tres interessant qui demande certaine réflexions.

Before I start this review I'd like to say that I do like the work that Hexage does and have immensely enjoyed some of their mobile apps. I must say however that "Reaper: Tale of a Pale Swordsman" looks nice, but plays terribly on PC. Reaper feels like a mobile app and just hasn't been adapted enough for PC to make it an enjoyable experience. I had some trouble navigating through game menus using the Xbox controller support and tended to resort to using my laptop's touch screen for certain commands - I'm not sure what I would have done without that option.

The problem with Reaper is that it's not just the menus that are mobile oriented; the gameplay through and through feels like a mobile game. The worst offender being that you permanently have auto-attack switched on because you don't have the range of inputs available to you on a mobile device that you have on a PC. This ends up making the fights feel somewhat tedious because you just move about getting your guy to automatically hit enemies while waiting to build up enough "rage skulls"so you can perform special moves where you actually get to press some buttons. The end result is a sloppy feeling combat system where the only attacks you get to time precisely are the special moves, and because these special moves are fueled by the boring auto-attacks interesting combo moves are pretty much non-existent.

On top of the non-PC-oriented gameplay, the level design is pretty bland. You move to different locations on a map and enter small two-dimensional battle arenas which might have some pitfalls obstacles or spikey traps to fall onto or into, and despite there being some nice art it's all pretty samey.

The story for Reaper had an intriguing concept of a the protagonist being a sword for hire working for both imperial colonists who burn something called "Fluidium" for their war machines and also working for the native tribes who harness the power of the magic which is released as a byproduct of burning Fluidium. That's about as interesting as it gets because after that you just wander from camp to camp doing anything for money without ever feeling that you should care about the stories of the different groups except to tell them that you should get more money from them.

I wanted to finish this game to see if the story took an interesting direction, but the combat became so mind-numbingly tedious I just had to mark this game as a closed file in my Steam library. I'm sure this game would be one of the better selections available on the mobile market, but it just doesn't cut it for PC.

3/10 would not reap.

This game to me looks like a mentally limited offspring of Odin Sphere, except that the pacing of combat is boringly slow, and you get stuck in combat phases without the chance of / and because you can't wander off to muscle up.

And of course this is yet another mobile port on PC that seemingly didn't live with the opportunities of a bigger platform. The art is pretty enough but the dev could have walked the extra mile with some amateur voice acting. That only would made a big difference as it may have made the game feel more like a whole PC game.

I'm not hating the game though, I just see its existence more justified on a retro platform. It would have been awesome on 8-16 bit consoles/microcomputers where I expect less.

A bit addicting. It's pretty much the same (as far as I know) as the iPhone version, which I did like. This is much better though since you get controller support. Once you get used to the moon jump and feel for the movement it can be a fun time waster.

A calm average game (port from mobile phones), it's fun to play but it can be very frustrating sometimes. It's luck based, why? Well fight stages are randomly generated (mainly: travel and dark harvest mode encounters). Also it's very simplified you just go near enemy and your character automatically attacks him, but not like you would normally use sword no no, it's so close that protagonist could hug enemy -.-, there are rage based attacks (rage meter is displayed in skulls) collected by hitting automatically enemies. When you're out of rage skulls it's over for powerful moves, but still can be very useful for some demons spamming from air bullets. Sometimes fight is so intense those air, land monsters/imperial troops/Wilderness spam so many bullets makes me to wonder if I'm playing casual or a bullet hell game, but easier? ^^
Story is text based, so just reading, travelling on map from point to point without side missions.

Pros:
  • colourful and nice artwork,
  • simple combat system,
  • using xbox360 controller is the most comfortable way to play this game,
  • challenging stages,
  • "double agent story" protagonist is working like mercenary for gold for both sides :p,
  • dodging bullets, missiles (subjective)
  • no broken achievements =)
  • easy to pick up and play
Cons:
  • have problems with locking up my laptop (have password on log in screen win7), this game is locking some keys in keyboard. Had to turn on program keyboard to type manually password,
  • In game music: heard 1 or 2 combat music? After few battles, I decided to mute it and just play music from foobar :P At the end boss I was curious if the song will be different and this game disappointed me, the same combat music :|
  • BOUNCING gold, O M G really? I know enemies are exploding when they have been slain but god. Gold acts like caoutchouc ball with gravitation to the nearest pit, end of screen :| it's very annoying when doing loot achievement every gold coin +5, bigger gold ore +25 (you have to collect 300k value of bouncing s**t
  • this game should be called bounce, or trampoline simulation ^^ everything palisades, camp fire, huts, enemy's head, etc. make character to bounce, some allow you to double jump some not (because of that I have fallen into pits very often), nearly everything can cause damage, that is more deadly than enemy ^^,
  • the same enemies coloured in different colours, so from that depends how will they attack and act,
  • spamming opponents: some of them are shooting bullets and then run away as fast as possible and I mean FAST D: you can't pursue them with simply running and also another enemy is coming when it happens (eye to eye contact: run away, turned back: enemy runs towards character and spam, repeat it and frustration arise)
  • story should be more complex ***SPOILER ALERT*** after defeating end game boss you go back to the Old Grey Beard house to find out that stormers have badly injured him what caused his death, after slaying those stormers you get ending ("swordsman don't know what to do"). Really? No revenge / killing frenzy? They killed his only friend. It could be done like that [Swordsman is going to kill every one who is connected with imperials and going to assassinate Lord Protector, after defeating all camps, fort, Lord Protector fly to his homeland, swordsman pursues him (new act, enemies, country, combat mechanics etc.) but it would be too long for this game[/spoiler],
  • this game runs in slomo all the time 30 fps, but when someone is joining broadcast the game wakes up and run like 5x times faster, impossible challenge,
  • no run in window option,

    Some people would say don't buy this game, can't agree with that, if you get it from bundle. Well it's not that great but still playable (for achievement hunters it's must have thing). It would be O.K. if the game developers could extend this game.

    5/10 => 6/10 with your own music on :P
