Version 1.7 Released - Hardcore Mode And New Achievements

The newest update for Battlepaths has just been released and features a new hardcore mode. Characters created in this mode will stay dead, but items in your stash remain so that future characters can benefit from the awesome loot acquired so far. Four new achievements have been added that can only be obtained in this mode.

Also, we fixed an annoying bug where the game would hang when ranged creatures fought outside the viewport.

Finally, you can now gain XP in one of the areas in the Halls of Challenge which comes in handy when going for max character level. The other areas are still the best choice to gather your perfect equipment.

Enjoy!

Aside from adding a hardcore mode, we fixed an annoying bug that made the game stuck on several occasions when ranged creatures fought outside the viewport.

About This Game

Battlepaths is a loot-centric and addictive 2D-RPG featuring neat monster hacking, an excellent loot system and a huge variety of character development. Learn skills, use powerfull potions, and hunt down the Chaos Overlord. The battle begins in Babatula, the first of three big realms to explore.

Battlepaths offers a sophisticated drop system that generates countless different items along with more than 50 unique items. The character customization allows you to create a unique hero with its own strengths and weaknesses. You can build a heavy, damage dealing tank, a deadly ninja that utilizes high speed and agility to attack his victims from out of nowhere, a true master of mind who crushes his foes with powerful combinations of special abilities, or something in between.

You can choose to play in different realms that each have their own landscape and their own set of creatures. The many superior items you will find can be exchanged between different characters, one of which will eventually become the first powerful enough to face the Chaos Overlord.

Prepare yourself for Battlepaths!

It plays like a roguelike, but it's basically just a generic loot-driven RPG. It has really inconsistent balance (scenarios 1 and 2 are really easy, and then scenario 3 killed me a whole lot, for instance) and a bunch of mind-bogglingly bad design decisions, too, like the Halls of Challenge not giving any XP at all.

In the end this is a game I can't really recommend to anyone! Go play a good loot-driven RPG (see: Titan Quest, Torchlight 2, Diablo 3, The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing), a good turn-based RPG (Avadon or Avernum), or a good roguelike (ADOM, Tales of Maj'Eyal) depending on what made you look at this game.

(EDIT: Version 1.7 added the ability to get XP in the Anti Babatula area of the Halls of Challenge, and quite a lot of it. This makes hitting level 35 much more reasonably possible by running through the Anti Goblin Cave a few times, if you're really determined to do that.

It still doesn't fix most of my problems with the game, but it was worth pointing out.)

This game is like a simplified version of Dungeons of Dredmor but without the humor. It feels more like a glorified flash game. That said, I am still enjoying it for what it is. If your in the mood for something light, give this a try.

This game is a very fun, fast turn-based arpg. It reminds me alot of diablo (I think the background music in the town of Babatula is intentionally similar to the in-town music in diablo), but is a deeper game with its own unique style and character. There is a lot of loot and great variety of ways to build your character, Rick. I like the 2d, almost cartoonish character graphics and the art in general. This is some of the best turn-based hack and slash you can get for 5 bucks.

I also bought this game on Xbox Live in 2012- btw, shame on xbox for their shoddy support for indie games - I owned my xbox 360 for 5 years before I even realized there were indie games available. Xbox does nothing to promote indie games despite the large number of quality games, frequently available for just a dollar.

I've played the xbox version, so I decided to buy this version. It's a pretty interestingly deep strategy RPG style game, with a large ingame world, and a great art style, it's got a pretty nice price for all the content you get. Buy it if RPG(s) are your cup of tea.

Fun little game, absolutely worth the four bucks. Old 1 turn = 1 attack/movement game sadly no graphical upgrades as your armor gets cooler. But nice little time killer that has kept me entertained for a few hours.
