“Fearless Fantasy Shows No Fear In Its Condensed RPG Design”
Hardcore Gamer

“It’s a strange, silly game that just so happens to also have a unique and unexpectedly challenging battle system.”
VGBlogger

“A compact adventure with a focus on turn-based skill, a notion as unique as the whole game itself.”
9/10 – GameGrin

Awesome game. Don't listen to all the bad reviews talking about the game being designed for ipads and not for pc (Mostly referencing the swiping QTEs). Yeah it's a different time based mechanic, that will take a little to get used to. When you do get it down, it is very rewarding, and satisfying to pull off.

In terms of the game itself here is some things to consider:
-Game is fairly short (can be finished in about 3 hours)
-Voice acting! (and not terrible at all)
-Charming comedic charm
-Balanced mechanics, that have good synergies between one another.
-Absolutely fun.

If you like RPGs or have never tried one and would like an introduction to turn based RPGs I would recommend this title, as it is fairly simple, short, and interesting.

The game had potential, not a lot of potential admittedly but it had some.
Ruined by a ♥♥♥♥ing ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ need to use dumb phone controls on a PC game.
No, I can't swipe and touch all around my screen like some ginny ♥♥♥♥!

I tried to like the game, I really did but its just yet another mobile game ported to PC with the sad irony being that the game came to PC first. What they should have done is put it on Nintendo 3/i/DS then ported it to mobile.

If you can get past the janky ♥♥♥ control scheme of swiping or tapping then you will have middling fun, middle of the road. Even looking past the control scheme the game is overall very solid and well done in many parts (yes that is a compliment) but its not captivating. Every time I failed a heal or missed an attack or performed an epic defense and still took a lot of damage I couldn't help but wonder if the game was done in this style so as to hide is awful flaws.

Overall, I can recommend this game (surprisingly) if you play on normal or easy and just have an itch for a Nintendo DS gimmick style game. Since, however, if you fall into that category then you either own a nintendo handheld from after the year 2000 OR a mobile phone, then you are already spoilt for choice aren't you?

Everyone else, stay away. Waste of your hard working tax dollars.

I bought this as part of a bundle with Party Hard, and I was genuinely surprised at how fun and interesting the game was. Pretty much everything was exemplary to me. The art was fun and interesting, the music (in part by OCRemix stalwart Andrew "Zircon" Aversa) was way above average. The battle system was just plain fun. And the voice acting was well above average for an indie title. The story was fun and carefree... I could go on and on. The short version is, if you want a fun distraction for a couple of hours. Fearless Fantasy is very worth it!

Fearless Fantasy is truly a gem. I purchased it when it was released back in 2014, and really enjoyed the game. Now, almost two years later, after the developers have overhauled the game and updated it drastically while still keeping the core mechanics intact, it still captivates me, perhaps even more so now.

I don't want to spoil the story, but the art design, character design, voice acting and game mechanics are all very well done for such a lesser known title. Whether you play this on a touch screen laptop, or with a mouse, you're likely to never get tired of the combat (which is primarily what the game is based around) as it's something that is easy to learn, but difficult to master.

If you enjoy RPG's, unique art styles, fun combat mechanics, great voice acting, humorously cliched (but not in a bad way) character design, than you NEED TO GET THIS GAME. You'll thank me after you do, I assure you.

I never really liked turn-based combat, but this game got me hooked! I'll probably try some other turn-based RPG titles after this one.
Like the gameplay, story is awesome and the voice acting is top of the notch!
Music is a bit repetitive and there's nothing to do here except for the battle.

Still, I'd recommend this game to any RPG fan. It's cheap, get it.

Good enough game, takes 2 and half hours to complete and is realtivly simple but very disappointed at the port from Ipad, this game is quite clearly not meant for PC, the mouse doesnt have time to react to half of the finger motions being shown on screen and sometimes the mouse cant create the curve needed for a perfect score so it was just annoying at stages but still its such a short simple and easy game and i did enjoy it, any longer and it would of gotten a negative review. 5/10

The game was clearly designed for touchscreens with the combat, but it works decently on PC up until the last two levels on the hardest difficulty, which almost broke my hand.

I enjoyed everything about this game though, and i really wish i knew who the voice actor was for the bad guy... reminds me of Shaco from League of Legends

I wouldn't be surprised if you could find this game on Kongregate, but none-the-less it's all right. Main problem being that it's a mobile game ported straight to PC, so if you're trying to play this game on the hardest difficulty it gets pretty damn infuriating when the game expects you to have your fingers on 5 different spots of the screen when you're using a mouse. Second problem is that when you upgrade your weapons, it becomes harder to pull off an "epic" attack, which often you need to do to even do damage. For the 2 dudes, this isn't a problem, but for the ♥♥♥♥♥, upgrading your bow to the 3rd tier is a downgrade because of this since it's often impossible to hit all of the spots that pop up on the screen. Third super minor problem, there's not enough of the main villain in the game (he's very Joker'ish) and you don't even get to kill his whiney ♥♥♥♥♥ lackey whom you fight 3 times (or 4, I don't friggin' remember) in the game.

Anyways, the game is all right, voice acting isn't painful, the animated cut scenes are spiffy and there's 1 or 2 laughs to be had. Playing through this game on the hard mode took me 8 hours, playing through on normal mode could probably take you as little as 2 hours to do. I got this game out of a bundle, wouldn't recommend spending actual dollars on it (especially not for the retail price of $6.99), and if you have the option of playing it on your mobile/tablet, definitely do that instead.

This game is fun and has a lot of good moments in it. You will enjoy it more if you go into it expecting a game that isn't going to be serious at all. It would be great on a tablet or phone but I actually really have had fun playing it on the PC using my mouse. It's more of a less serious Final Fantasy game. Watch the videos on the store page and it will give you a better idea of the combat and interaction. I got this game in a bundle and from what I've played and enjoyed so far I would put this game at around $4 - $5 price range. If you get it for cheaper than that you've gotten a great deal.

Its a mobile port, and you especially notice it while you try to do the near impossible movements with a mouse to active a §$%§$& skill. Once you figure out how you can make it work with a mouse it gets easier. I would not pay the full price, i've got it from a bundle.

I love weird games in any kind of sense and Fearless Fantasy is such. The creatures are not typical, the battle system is not entirly typical. At first glance, it seems like another mobile port and to some degree it is, but make no mistake – it's defenently worth your time and money.

The main character here is Leon, the best bounty hunter in the world. He's tricked by princess Alice to save her from arrange marriage and they start a quest to stop an evil king. Along their journey, the company is joined by Vonn, friend and fellow bounty hunter of Leon, to help them with their quest. Together they have to stop the bad guy and kill a terrifying monster. The story is cheesy, simple and there in nothing to remember, except the character interaction. The writing is surprisingly fun. Cheesy, but fun. Dialogs between everyone is good. It won't win any awards, but I didn't want to skip any of the cutscene.

The option are bare-bones. Sound sliders, fullscreen, dynamic camera and visual effects. There are non rebindle key, because it's entirly mouse driven game.

The developer put a little twist on the traditional JRPG's battle system for the player to be more involved. You choose a regular attack or special. Then arrows and/or circles appear on screen and with the mouse you have to slide and/or click on them at precise moment. Better you do, more damage you make. Different skill have different patterns. Some even takes quite a few seconds to do and this keeps you on edge. This is the case with the enemies. When they make a move, you will do the same thing. Better you do, less damage you take and later in the game, this may be the difference between life or death. All skill require energy. Sometimes character can be blinded, but you can still make a flawless move. I really like this battle system. It's not just click to choose, it involves you and it's awesome! But it can also make you rage-quit, if you mess up.

All enemies have description and from here comes the strategy part. Some enemies while they are alive, his allies receive less damage from range attack, but when they are left alone, they die and so on. So you have to decide to kill the other creatures first or the single one that provide this buff. And this is kinda cool.

The skill are acquired by leveling up. When this happens, you have one point to put in stats and one in skills. All skills can be level up 5 times. Their sound and especially visual design is great.

After a battle you will get gold. With him you can buy weapons, items and gadgets. All are pretty standard. You have to be at certain level to get better weapons, items and gadgets. I wish there were more things to buy.

Beside the battle system, the graphics and charatcer design is what caught my eye at first. Both are amazing!!! All creatures are non standard and I can't even describe them. A mushroom with a some sort of shotgun and an evil flower. This is the best I can do. They are really weird in a good way. A lot of thought is put in them. The backgrounds are great too. They have this oil painting style and I like it. It's different than the characters. The bosses are really fun to fight. All have some sort of support, like tentacles or other characters, that have some buffs and you have to decide from who to start. They require some strategy.

As for the level design, there isn't much to say. You have a static map and there appear the next level. You click on it, choose the difficulty, represented as stars, fight 3-5 wave of enemies and that's it.

The suprise for me is the soundtrack. It's great!!! I want to listen it every day. It's that good. All tracks are fast-paced techno and really fits the combat on screen. Sadly, you can't buy it or find it anywhere.

Sound effects are great. All have enough punch to feel satisfying and when you combine it with visual effects, they get even better.

The voice acting is really nice and I wasn't expecting any. I like Leon, he's bold, cocky, looking for a fight and he always have something to say. Vonn and Alice have their different personality. Non of them three characters are original or complex, but their conversations are fun to watch.

I have few problems with the game. The first and most important is the lack of any information about the debuffs you get. Some you can recognize, like poisoning, but others you can't, at least in the beginning. All have icons beside of characters name and with time you will know them, but I think it would be better if I hover the mouse over them to show me some information. The second is grinding. It isn't much, but had to repeat few level to get some money for new gear. Next is minor. When enemy is about to attack on screen you see “Tap when ready”. Come on, it's a PC game remove tap and put click. Next is audio in cutscenes. It feels really compressed. Other conversations have much better quality. And lastly the combat. I can't comment the mobile version, but the games feels kinda clunky when you have to use the mouse to execute the moves. Further into the game they become longer and complicated. It feels more natural to swipe with fingers. Despite that it's really fun. Oh, and tutorial for the combat is nowhere to be found.

Overall I had fun with the game. It's defenently worth the asking price. If it was more, I would say wait for a sale. The game is not super long. It will take you 3-5 hours to beat it. There is three star rating system and from here come some replayability. I didn't maximise all my skill and I still beat the game, so for me it's not worth on the hardest difficulty, because the fighting become faster and this can make me break my mouse. The battle system, creature design and soundtrack are really great and because of them you can overlook the shortcomings. I recommend it.

The combat in this game is built for touch devices - something that makes gameplay on a desktop much less fun.

All other things considered, this is a great, albeit short game - grab it during a Steam sale!


Pros:
Art style
Music
Light-hearted satire
Easy to play

Cons:
Combat controls

REVIEW
With a cursory glance, it would be easy to dismiss Fearless Fantasy as another mediocre game, with mobile-game-era mechanics (oh my), that isn’t worth looking into. I will tell you: that may be a mistake.

If video games were people in a Hollywood high school movie, Fearless Fantasy would probably be that odd, quiet girl who sits alone during lunch. Most people know she exists, but don’t necessarily acknowledge her existence— best she just stay in the corner “where she belongs.” Then when the jock has to talk to her (on a dare), we find out she is indeed a bit odd and won’t ever fit in with the popular crowd… but she is also surprisingly fun and suddenly attractive when you give her a chance to take off her glasses and let her hair down.

Many people will automatically dismiss this game because it uses ideas rooted in mobile-gaming. That is their prerogative. All I know is that I only play games on PC, and I play many different games— and I found Fearless Fantasy to be one of the more enjoyable games I have personally played. It isn’t the best, but it is better than many.

What makes this game enjoyable is the combination of nostalgia-evoking, tried-and-true, core RPG mechanics (turn-based combat, level ups, skill points, and items) with some modern zest (using the mouse to make gestures to execute abilities), and a light, casual style and storyline. While you play, it simultaneously feels comfortably familiar and interestingly novel.

Many games try to find ways to spice up the classic turn-based-RPG combat style; one of the best I have seen is the swipe-and-click gesturing used in Fearless Fantasy. Instead of just clicking “attack” and watching your character attack, you have to use your mouse to perform various combinations of swiping and clicking, involving timing and precision. I thought it was exceedingly fun trying to pull off the advanced moves on the high difficulty.

With the relative ease and short length of this game, it is a great candidate for a quick bite of a variety in your gaming diet.

I'll hold this little crud as a perfect example of a bad port from mobile platforms.

You see, it is a decent game, by indie standarts. It is working, there are no bugs, it has start and end, and there are even a challenge of some kind! Like in the famous Osu! title.
But, just like with Osu! and even worse... its main part, the battle system, is strongly tied to touchscreens. You just can't do same shift with mouse, and don't even try to use joysticks, trackballs or something like that.
I repeat again - this game is designed to mash and sweep your finger via screen, back and forth. And it is quite good only in that.
But here we are - at PC station. I know, somebody might have a notebook with touchsreen, but statistically it is an imperceptible minority among usual mouse+keyboard users. And there that game fits as well as a fifth wheel.

I see that almost a quarter of my friends already bought it, probably in some bundle, or with 90% discount. And ALL of them either not touched it at all, or idled for 5 hours, to get all cards. Well, that's the way to go! To beat it and get all achievements... too much honor for that cheapshot.

Avoid. My mark is 5/10.

This game is unexpectedly amazing. It is weird and hilarious.

I am always happy to see an RPG that manages to be funny without being just stupid and/or vulgar.... and I cracked up the first time I selected the dance option in battle.

+ Different (casual) take on the turn-based RPG genre
+ The continuous action keeps you alert
+ Humor
+ Special powers are a joy to watch

+/- Battle system is nice but flawed, sometimes you have no clue what is happening or has happened
+/- Graphics have a certain charm but are also a bit ugly
+/- Voice acting is cheesy but fits the game

- You won't lose many battles but still; grinding isn't fun

[Rating: 71/100]

This game is amazing if you are looking for a casual RPG. Great humour and interactive gameplay keeps you entertained throughout the game. The artwork is amazing and it blends well with the story.

It's quite a short game but it's still worth the money since you can replay all the levels including the bosses. You can also easily respec your character's stats as well as their respective skills.

It can be difficult at times especially if you want to clear a stage in 3 stars. I suggest you practice your timings right because getting a flawless or epic timing is a must to survive some difficult bosses. You also need to manage your energy, so adding points on endurance and using gadgets that adds +endurance is advisable.

More energy = more skill usage = more damage

Graphics: 7 (Awesome art style which blends well with the story)
Gameplay: 7 (Intuitive battle system - timing is a must)
Replayability: 5 (Not so much, no branching story line or another reason to replay the game)
Fun Factor: 7 (Could be low if you aren't into short casual rpg games)

Thanks to you I am glued to my computer playing this game. IT'S SO GOOD.
SERIOUSLY. Sound design, Music, Monsters, Characters, Battle System... just WOW!

The 'weird' kind of look to the enemies really make the game unique!!!

The only thing i'm going to "complain", is that I am a grindy type of person, and I love to level up, a lot.
It's not a bad thing that the game doesn't have grinding! It's just a thing i really like in rpgs.

Anyway, this game gets a 912837918237 out of 10 from me.

On a last note, just so you know, I threw my money at the screen the second I saw the game.

Costume Quest meets Paper Mario meets Elite Beat Agents. If this sounds good to you, read no further.

This is a tiny RPG that came out of nowhere. Surprisingly challenging and interesting battle system. Mildly throw away plot. Though its nice to see the party members adhere pretty well to the “holy trinity” Leon- the DPS, Alice - the support healer and Vonn – the Tank.

Its also a nice feature to be able to re-spec at any time with a just a right click, some battles can be tanked through while others require more.. finesse.

The whole time I was thinking of FFVIII because Leon, mixed with the timing of things increasing damage and the fact that Leon is absolutely holding a Gunblade warrants the comparison to Squall. And obviously on a different scale.

Surprisingly deep diversion.

Do not come into this game expecting the next final fantasy and you will be okay. It is more or less a straight grind of challenges of enemies. The battle system is fun and different, the characters are entertaining and the voice acting is adequate enough for the game. Its not the next big RPG but it is entertaining and fun

Fearless Fantasy strangeness drew me to it like a moth to the flame. I purchased it purely for its intriguing art style and was greeted with humor, two characters that nearly sound like Steve Blum and Mark Hamill's Joker, and a turn-based combat system based on timing and tracing.

I really like the art, especially for the monsters. They were just enjoyable to look at before I slaughtered them. The monster designs range from humorous to creepy (pay attention to their names too). The stills that were in place for the cinematics were not very interesting visually, but the humor usually takes priority during those sections.

The voice acting seems decent enough and light-hearted. Joshua Tomar kept throwing me off with his Steve Blum impression. Adam Harrington's voice kept on giving me serious Joker vibes. Both made my experience with the game even weirder.

The combat system can be difficult to master. Tracing with the mouse did not work out well for me unless I played on Casual or Normal (you can set the difficulty manually for each level). There are three characters with different specialities (damage/debuff, buffing/taunting, healing/defensive) with five different skills available for leveling up. None of them are too amazing, but it's satisfying to trace a perfectly timed path and scoring an epic or flawless rating for very high damage or bonus effects. Look at the first trailer for the game to have a fairly accurate idea of how the tracing mechanic works (you path your mouse through arrows).

Fearless Fantasy is a strange, little game that might be enjoyable for you. Let the art style consume you.
