If you have already made experience with RPG Maker games and found them decent enough, you will find this game decent.
If you like these games, you will like this one.
A classic Top-down RPG game.
It shows it was not made with a budget to speak of.
This is noticable from the beginning, as the 'Options' menu is the bare minimum.
There is no resolution to choose from.
Windowed is not recommended because of the resulting low resolution setting.
The sound is also restricted to On/Off with no option to choose a specific level.
Button remapping is also a thing dearly missed by me.
Still, i find it enjoyable.
The story (2h in) is written well enough to keep me interested.
Both keyboard and mouse controls are viable.
Combat is simple with a classic turn based system.
If you are someone who needs a lot of options in the options menu and are more used to modern style games, you will be disappointed.
But, If you are looking for a classic turn based RPG experience, I can recommend this game to you.
It feels quite nostalgic.
I've also researched a little bit about this series and found out, that all parts of the "Orbs of Magic" series (this is part 1 of 4) are already available for download at amaranthia.com for 10.99USD, though i recommed getting the game during a Steam sale or promotion, as the standard price is set a little bit too high.
In the end, it is a game made by only a few people, enthusiastic about old school rpg's and it shows.
