"A surprisingly fun game given the simplistic nature, you will not be disappointed. I spent hours upon hours enjoying this tile-based retro RPG."

Version 1.73 Now Available For All Platforms

Finally, both Windows and Linux users have access to the latest update for Battlepaths. There were a few issues with the Linux version which we actually didn't update since 1.7. Besides several fixes for the Linux version, version 1.73 allows you to rebind your key settings, which so many gamers asked for.

If you are interested in what we are currently doing at Key17 check out our homepage. There's quite something going on!

Version 1.73 In Public Beta

Players can now opt into the public beta branch and play the most recent version of Battlepaths. Among several minor changes, you will now be able to rebind the keyboard controls. During beta, this has to be done by editing the file "keymapping.txt" in the install folder.

Also, the game got a little more verbose and you'll get informed when your hero receives any enchantments, e.g. when getting slowed, weakened, or poisoned, but also when you receive temporal boosts from your equipment.

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!

I got this game as a bundle and really cheap so I didn't start with very high hope for this game.

Well I was right! Don't put very high hope for this game.

On Steam review I can only choose Yes to recommend and No to not Recommend. But sometime like this game i would love to have an option "Neither".

This is not a terrible game but it's just too simple. It's simpler than the old Windows 3.2 Game Castle in the Winds. Which i played over 20 years ago.

The graphic is decent for indie, The Combat is very simple and there are not much choice for spells and ability.

Basic you build up your character and use ability to cover the short coming in order to get though tough fights.

You had to save and exit many times to level up and get items to win the tough fights.

I have just played 1 game of hardcore to get achievements and 22 hours later, right after I get the last achievement that require me to play hardcore I died on the last floor of Brutal challenge room.

This means i have to start over. But since i already achieved over 60% achievements and all the rest ones are just more grinding of exact same content over i don't think i will play this game for a second time.

Over all I would rate this piece 5/10. If you can get this game cheap and there are no other game for you to play... Give this piece a try.

A simple little game of haack-n-slash, exploring, and sorting through piles of loot.

Easy to pick up and play, albeit the controls are a bit clunky.

For the price it's an enjoyable, casual romp in Fantasy RPG land when you want to whack some mobs but not be bogged down with a lot of micro-managing or other heavy elements. This is the perfect game to play for just those times.

This Rogue-like game have:
* a good mechanism (with respawn function: It's not a "1 life try"-game)
* but about the look:
  • Only the Main Hero have a moving animation, the enemies- not. But attack animations are
  • The Humans looks like asleep or they living in a "Smoke Weed Everyday" -village
  • The bats are soo cute ^W^

4/5 Cute bats & "Yo men! What's up ?"-guys

Remember that dude who drew Garfield the cat commic strip faces on everything in Middle school?

Well, he made a game. Everyone in this game looks like John Arbuckle from Garfield. Yes.

The horrors... It is true.
