Waking up from an eternal slumber can leave any groggy and our pale swordsman has a lot to learn about how the world has changed while he slept.

This side scrolling action game has a nice colorful art style but lacks the substance in it's mechanics. Combat is often as easy as holding right on the analog stick. The UI and world map seem unresponsive to input and drawn to large for the amount of content on it.

I purchased this game on a bit of a whim a few months back while I was searching for games that might run on my laptop, and I have yet to regret it. With simple controls, a decent storyline, good graphics and audio, and a decent difficulty level, this side-scroller proves its worth without a doubt. Even the roleplay options presented are acctually quite decent for such a game!

I was actually quite pleasantly surprised!

Nice fun little action RPG with pretty graphics and a decent story.
It kept me pretty engaged the whole way through with it's simple yet satistfying combat mechanics.
20 hours playing this game went by like nothing.
Plus, it's pretty cheap.
cool little game

A game clearly made for touch-controls/mobiles. The sole tactics at your disposal are: run into an enemy to deal damage (and receive it), and jump over attacks that would stun you.

Jumpin on an enemy forces you to bounce on them, and some enemies cause you damage from this (but you can never deal damage this way). Spiked background elements also damage you, as do those on fire (like torches). In fact, you spend at least 80% of your in-game time in the air, usually uncontrollably bouncing off something. And you'd better hope that the common enemy that's invunerable from one side isn't standing in front of a bouncy background object, because they will be utterly impossible to hit.

The controls/fight mechanics of this game suggest it is trying to be casual, but between the bullet hell enemies, unavoidable attacks and the background trying to kill you, this is anything but a casual game. Oh, and did I mention that once you enter an encounter you HAVE to complete it to progress? That's right, if the 50+ enemies are too much for you in a fight, you just have to keep doing it over and over until you win (or the fraction of XP you get after death is enough to level you up and you're lucky enough to be given a helpful stat to upgrade to give you a new edge).

In short: the mechanics are lazy, the difficulty is lazier, and the repetitiveness is through the roof. No amount of cutesy artwork is enough to fix that.

This game is...not good.

I skipped all the text because do I really need to know why this Pale Swordsman is doing anything? Do I care? You move from place to place and hack and slash things, but there's no valid reason to continue other than to get the achievements. It's just not fun.

Also, what is up with the shops?! Who thought that was a good control scheme? Left analog navigates around your equipped items while the digital pad moves between items in that inventory slot. Meanwhile, right analog navigates around the shops items. L is used to sell items and R is used to buy items. Seriously, was moving with the analog and pressing A not good enough? They had to make this a puzzle. Jeez.

Pros:
* The art style isn't bad
* The small indicator showing the percentage of enemies in the current fight you've defeated is nice
* The world is relatively original

Cons:
* The story drags like hell and takes forever to get anywhere. After maybe an hour or two a subplot about demons arriving started being hinted, which I'd love to pursue, but instead the game forced me to do fetch quests and assassinations for different groups, most of which blurred together into one.
* Random encounters are compulsory. Trying to finish a quest and you bumped into enemies? Too bad, fight them before finishing the quest!
* Environmental hazards are just cruel. Fell down that pit because you misjudged a jump? There goes half your health, unless you bought an upgrade to avoid it! Standing next to some fire? ♥♥♥♥ you, you're taking damage.
* You can't manually attack enemies unless you build up your rage ("Skulls"). I know the game was originally for tablets and mobile devices, but on a PC there's no reason why we shouldn't be able to manually attack, or at least give us the option to toggle manual attacks on and off
* Enemies outnumber you by far and it's easy for the game to devolve into being stunlocked until you're dead or bullet hell. Individually the enemies are fine, but the majority of the time if you're facing more than three or four, it's a struggle to cope with them.
* Airborne enemies constantly fly away from you, making them difficult to fight and frustrating to deal with.
* The gameplay is essentially the same fight repeated ad nauseum, with the only changes being the enemies you fight. There's somewhere between ten to fifteen unique enemies - most of which are interchangeable - and everything after that is just a palette swap.
* Fights give you virtually no experience or gold; most of what you get will be through quests.
* Movement is clunky; you walk very slowly, jump awkwardly and arguably too high, and if you accidentally tap the same direction twice to adjust a fall, odds are you'll waste a skull and do a quick dash to the side, which additionally could be to your detriment.
* The protagonist's only motivation appears to be getting money, which he has no apparent use for outside of the in-game shops (which 90% of the time won't sell anything worth buying). It could be that this changes towards the end of the game, as I didn't beat it, but if that's the case there's no hint towards it earlier.

TL;DR: On tablets and phones, in short bursts, this could arguably be a fun way to kill time - arguably - but on a PC this game is a bore. It's too long, too slow, and the fights alternate between being tedious and too difficult. Not worth buying or playing.

Ich habe es zwar erst etwas mehr als eine Stunde gespielt, aber muss sagen, für gerade mal 10 Mark bekommt man hier ein tolles Action-Rollenspiel mit Suchtpotential. Durch immer weitere Kämpfe wird der kleine freche Reaper mit zunehmenden Upgrades, Rüstungen und Waffen verstärkt. Das Spiel ereignet sich in einer Fantasy-Welt in der Menschen versuchen Ureinwohner zu kolonisieren. Der Reaper steht irgendwo dazwischen, vielleicht wird er sich noch für eine Fraktion entscheiden müssen. Immer vor die Wahl gestellt, sich den Mitmenschen gegenüber wie die Axt im Walde zu verhalten, ausbeutend und böse oder edel doch finster. Das Spiel erinnert an eine Mischung aus "Wonderboy in Monsterland", "Death Spank" und eingängigen Flash-Spielchen. Neben einem Story-Modus bietet es die Möglichkeit in einem reinen Action-Modus zu leveln und zu erbeuten und das Ergebnis im Schwanzvergleich mit anderen Mitspielern gegenüberzustellen, in der Hoffnung unter die oberen Zehn zu gelangen. Mir macht das Abenteuer jedenfalls viel Spass und ich freue mich schon auf seine weiteren Abenteuer.

Das gameplay macht spaß und man kann sich auch länger damit beschäftigen, kann aber auch einfach zwischendurch mal eine kleine partie spielen. Reaper sieht auch sehr schön aus und die Musik ist auch nett.
Lohnt sich auf jedenfall.

Ich würde es empfehlen wenn man ein ein gutes günstiges Spiel sucht.

- im Bundle erhalten -

Tolle Grafik und Gegner/Weltendesign ! Sehr schöne Rollenspiel Elemente sind vorhanden. Das Reisen auf der Map ist manchmal etwas gewöhnungsbedürftig. Besser wäre es gewesen es als durchgängiges Spiel zu machen mit ein paar Reise Punkten. Die Story ist soweit ok, aber jetzt nichts weltbewegendes.

Also ich muss sagen es hat mich mehr gehooked als ich erwartet habe. Habs mir eigentlich nur geholt weil ich noch Geld auf meinem Steam_Konto übrig hatte. Und es hat sich gelohnt.

Der Preis ist auch in Ordnung. Sehr kurzweilig.

Guilty of being an impulsive buyer, this is one of the few games I've bought on a whim that has surprised me greatly. Fun and fast enough and mildly complex enough to keep me intrigued. It's cheap, buy it already!

Lets start with what I didn't like with the game.
1. Controls:
-The Map interaction really shows that this was made for a touchdevice to begin with, it's a thing to get used to but annoying when you are new to the game.
- Combat is a just watching the game play itself as you will auto attack instantly and consistently as soon as an enemy is comes close. You have your Manual attacks that is an Uppercut or a Slam (downward) attack but they are weak unless you wait long enough for your auto-attack to build up enough rage (skulls on the top) to make them stronger. This is fine for a touchgame when you have a limited amount of "buttons" to use to not disturbe you visual of the screen for the gameplay but a huge flaw when you have an actual controller to play with. For me this was a really fun draining aspect of the control.

Otherwise the movement is very solid and responsive and you can get a really good flow (wich is needed with combat mechanics mentioned above.

Graphics, sound were all good though.
Story I can't say much about since I didn't get very far in to the game due to the offputting controls.

If I had the choice again then I would rather have picked this up on an IOS device rather than getting it here for PC.
All the positive feedbacks in this review area fooled me though.
Maybe I will give this another chance later but not right now.

Wether or not this will be helpful to you I can't say. Just be sure to know what you are paying for, the controls are a major thing to consider if seeking a fun little game to play. This is just way to casual for my taste to be played on a PC with a controller.

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.

Reaper: Tale of a Pale Swordsman has a lot of good things going for it, especially the price. It's an interesting combination of platformer and RPG that's addictive and will keep you hacking and slashing through level after level. There are only a few drawbacks that keep it from achieving a perfect score.

The Great:
1. The graphics are colorful and fun to look at.
2. The pacing keeps you going through the game, hacking your way through level after level.
3. Great sound effects and soundtrack help make the gameplay even better.
4. Excellent Price
5. Action-packed
6. Very easy to pick up and start playing!

The Bad:
The only major bad elements are related to the controls of the game. They're not terrible, but they can seem clunky at times. Every once in awhile you'll find yourself frustrated as a result, but this is a minor drawback to an otherwise excellent game.
I'm recommending Reaper, and look forward to what else the developers have to offer.

It's what you'd expect from a mobile port and then some - The controls are a bit clunky, but you get used to them over time. The plot isn't really there, the fighting is, at times, impossible (Screamer jumps are uninterupttable).

But the gameplay itself is so easy to pick up that I just find myself just... enjoying the experience. The ranking system gives a sense of progress, as do the constant quests.

I'd imagine that if a full-sized dev team were to take Reaper and flesh it into a full game, it would be amazing.

8/10, Slicing through everything in sight is awesome
