I liked this game a lot, for what it was. It's a short (I beat it in 10 hours) and sweet little RPG with combat in the turn-based form many of the classics of the 90s were in. There is nothing groundbreaking done in this game, but it does what it does properly. The game is short, but not in a bad way... sometimes RPGs are way to long. There are only 4 areas to explore and the content is limited-- but it all flows well and once you're about to get bored something piques your interest. So, if you are looking for a quick and new world to explore combined with a turn-based RPG experience that may make you nastalgic for the RPGs you grew up on, I think you will like this.

The graphics and sound are decent, nothing special. The game worked just fine for me, I experienced no glitches or crashes. The customization and new party members are limited, but it is enough to continuously give you new abilites to try in combat until the end. There is no voice acting, but no voice acting > bad voice acting... and it adds to the potential nastalgic enjoyment.

The story is ok, full of predictable tropes, but it was entertaining enough... and it ends right when you may start getting bored. A lot of people complain that game ends on a cliffhanger, and it does-- also, the devs have said they won't finish the story. It's akin to a TV show being cancled. But if you just accept that the "to be continued" at the end of the game should be read as "the end" its not even that bad of a self-contained story with an open ending. Many stories use open-endings on purpose that are worse than this game's ending. Anyway, you will have to decide for yourself how you feel about it.

Lastly, the game is very easy-- even on hard. It's a simple game, so there are no advanced stategies needed. Just basic elemental strengths/weaknesses and remembering to heal. But much of what would be excessive combat can be avoided by completing quests diplomatically. You choose how to solve many quest.

I can say all-in-all I enjoyed playing through this game, so I give it a thumbs up, but I can see how others with different taste may not enjoy the game.

Pretty, interesting story, good game mechanics. BUT.. and I knew this in advance (thought I might not mind) there is no voice acting. The lips move yet no sound comes out. Since I find the background music anoying as I do for 90% of the games out there, I turned that down. I was left with a totally silent game except for the occational combat grunt. It's creepy and depressing. So I looked it up, this game had voice over on other platforms, the Steam version doesn't. And frankly it just makes what could have been a pretty sweet rpg, into a suck fest.

It stinks that Steam only offers two ratings, "Recommended" and "Not Recommended" as Faery had me thinking a lot about how to classify it. On one hand there's a charming game with a pretty good art design, quick movement and an interesting world while on the other hand the story isn't finished, (and never will be) the game is too easy and the quests are pretty much fetch quests.

The fetch quests aren't too bad as the world's that I traveled were pretty compact, usually beautiful and the characters travel pretty damn quickly. It's not like I'm hiking 5-10 minutes just to get back to a person that I just fetched a mushroom for. The combat isn't horrible either, in fact it does have some depth to it but on the default difficulty setting I only had one character knocked out once simply because I knew the enemies weren't going to win so I decided not to waste time using a healing spell.

In the 7 or so hours I played the game I gathered a party of some interesting looking characters. I say "looking" because the game never really delves into their personalities. There was a scholarly Troll, a mad hatter looking character with a habit of keeping animals as friends to summon in battle, an efrit, and a little dragon just to name a few. The all handle pretty similarly in battle with maybe just a few tweaks here and there.

The game uses mirrors to teleport that characters to the different world's and I saw The Flying Dutchman, Yggdrasil and a town on the back of a giant Scarab amongst the gathering of mirrors but most of the teleport stations remained inactive which I'll discuss later on in my biggest complaint about the game.

Then the game wraps it all together with turn based combat that is pretty easy and an equipment screen where different sets up armor and weapon changes the look of the main Faery and the look depends if you picked a male or female protagonist.

One of the more interesting aspects of the game was the leveling system. Here's were the character is upgraded a point at a time and the points are invested in areas that change the appearance of the Faery. Dragonfly style wings enable the character to cast fire spells, bird wings would enable wind spells and I had to choose because you're not allowed to have both. The game further defines the character with tattoos, auras, tails, horns etc... My final Faery was a female with dragonfly wings, a scorpion's tail, ant like antennae, some tattoos and a wisp that hovered around her. It was a pretty interesting feature and I enjoyed cycling through the options and weighing the looks and benefits of the spells/abilities that the choices gave me.

The main downside is that the game doesn't feel finished. Now there are right ways to do a trilogy or set a story up for a sequel and there are wrong ways. I feel the correct way is to have a conflict, then a resolution within a single game but it doesn't have to be the resolution to the main conflict. Faery: Legends of Avalon ends right when the story is reaching a climax and I thought I was about to fight the first major battle in the game only to be greated with some text and the credits. There were plenty of mirrors left to travel to but they all remained inactive due to the cliffhanging ending of the game.

There's also a strange lack of sound coming from the majority of characters while traveling the world which lends an empty feeling to the environments despite the music being good. There are also some spelling errors in the text.

Don't get me wrong, there's a lot to like about this game and I think it's probably near the top of Spiders' best works yet and this is where I don't think Steam's way of catogorizing games really does F:LoA justice. I would recommend this game with some reservations because, like me, some of these complaints are deal breakers.

This game is pretty cute. You can fly around like a fairy and help (or fight) other creatures. The graphics are good, and they fit with the atmosphere in the game. The story line is okay, it is an interesting and a fairyesque(is that a word?) story, but also a bit linear and also very short. You can mostly choose between a violent or non violent option to solve the quest. When you talk to an NPC you can also choose between the good (blue texts), neutral (white texts) and evil options (red texts). So with that you can also make a NPC let you like you more, or less. And with that you can solve quests or problems as well.

The character customization is good, you can make a cute looking fairy, but if you want to make an evil one, go ahead. When you level up you can give your fairy special skills and equipment. You can also find several companions to help you in your adventures.
So now the combat: it is turnbased, and some skills/spells work better on your enemy than others. It is a bit of balancing who you take with you, so you can do max damage. But you can find a companion who heals you and your allies as well, or do it yourself.

There are only a few things that bug me a bit. I don't like the black lines around characters and objects (I know it is a small thing, sorry).
And I miss a bit of voiceacting. You see the animations in the conversations, see them talking, but you can't hear them. Which is a bit awkward in my opinion.

But overall I enjoy the game. I like the story, and the combat. I would recommend it to buy it in the sale. If you think that the combat is too easy, you can change the difficulty in options by the way.
I hope they make a new game, which you would expect because of the open ending. But no one heard about a upcoming sequel.

My rating for the game: 7/10

I thoroughly enjoyed this game. While short, I felt it engaging throughout and enjoyed every aspect of it.

Except the ending, that is the only gripe I have with this game, the ending. It NEEDS a sequel (or even trilogy), having heard the news that this isn't in the works makes me greatly disheartened.

If you thought Mass Effect 3's ending was dissapointing, this is a whole nother level.

I would give this game a 7/10, would have been a solid 9/10 for me if it weren't for the ending.

A fun little RPG, with just enough background, interesting landscapes, and battle mechanics to keep it from being hated. Why the hate, you ask? It seems pretty obvious once you start playing, that they had intended for a sequel to come out later, but because of poor sales, will never happen. The game DOES end with a cliffhanger, where the sequel would would taken off from.

If this is something that you can overlook, then you will find 7-8 hours of good gameplay for a decent price (especially if its on sale).

Absolutely love this game! The quests are fun and unpredictable, the worlds are beautiful, the characters are amusing, and the difficulty is challenging but not intolerable. This game is waaaay too under-rated and needs attention! My only complaint is how little you can customize your character. I had a certain image for my faery I wanted to have and it didn't turn out the way I thought it would, but the game is so fun that I don't even mind. My first session was 6 1/2 hours long right after it was installed. I'm addicted <3

Faery is a budget RPG with problems, no other way to put it.

Good points first: it has a very beautiful visual style and a fitting soundtrack, and the game scales pretty nicely across difficulty scales. On harder difficulties combat is nice and rewarding, and on easier difficulties the game becomes a breeze to get through.

The worlds are filled with unique characters and quests that are well thought out and fit in the world, and you encounter many different races on your journey.

Sadly, this game feels unpolished in many other aspects. All the dialogue is unvoiced and delivered through subtitles, and the music, while fitting, sounds like a repetitive rip-off of the Harry Potter movie soundtrack.

It also has very limited controller support: while you can control your character in the world with it, for menus and combat you're forced to use a mouse and keyboard combo. At least with my setup. The game is marked as both Partial and Full Controller support, which I guess means just that.

And sadly, as of right now (October 2014) the game is broken. The executable will not work, so you'll have to track down a patch from another site as well as copy the PhysX DLL to the game folder to get it to work at all.

As I'm writing this review, the game costs €2,50, and for that price, I think it's definitely worth it. I suspect it will give me easily 10 hours of playtime or more to get through, and I do want to continue. So it gets a thumbs up, with warnings.

PROS: I found the game to be fun. My son, who just turned 11, is having fun learning the game. I have been playing RPG's for over 32 years. I love games where the main character can be a faery. You get to fly almost anywhere. With each leveling up, you can to choose what you want to add or upgrade. The game IS NOT all about slah and hack. I love that feature.

CONS: You have to live with the upgrades and attribute choices made. Once you select, you cannot do a take back. That is only a minor setback though. I decided to just not make some choices, the next time I play. The largest setback is tat just when you are really getting into the story, it ends. You are left with a "to be continued" feeling.

Overall: The first playing it, took not too long. It ended too quick. Had a lot of fun playing it. My son played it for over an hour before I bumped him. (Not many games grab his attention for that long.) For mere fun and entertainment purposes, I feel satisified with the purchase. I hope Part 2 is much longer....

Well, thats a fine small jewel.

It makes some real fun. You dont have to kill every mob in sight, there are ways to solve some of the quest without force. But the turn based combat is fun to. A pity that there is no voice output.

Disappointing at the price. Graphics really not up to par. Occasional pretty scenes are ruined by limited execution, and unclear in-game controls. Repetitive jokes and unintentionally humorless interaction between the characters make this one a dud. The combat system is excruciatingly slow and clunky, and over-drawn for the painful and repetitive battle music.

Faery - Legends of Avalon is a turn based RPG story game. It centers around the main character that you create solving the problems in a given world before advancing forward in the next one. Faery, however, is an incomplete game. All the mechanics are there, the gameplay, the story, even the combat system. All these things just need more work put into them before it is complete. This game has a beautiful artsyle and is executed well graphically. I found myself drawn to this game in the first place because of the graphics. But graphics DON'T make a game. The story is pretty generic. It had its moments but all in all it is very predictable. Go to place y, fix thing x, solve problem z, return to me for your reward type of deal. This playstyle is amazing for games like Skyrim and Mass Effect and generally RPG games as a whole. However those games give you a sense of adventure, fullfillment and endless possibilities. They have substance to back it up. Faery seems to desperatly want to provide that to the player but just falls short. This is a shame cause I think the game could have actually been something. I found myself wanting to like this game so much as I played but I was ultimately dissapointed. If Faery was put back into development and polished up, given a more wholesome stroy and a better dialog, I would have no problem giving it a 9/10. But as it sits, I couldn't justify more than a 5/10.

I bought this game for around $2. I wouldn't pay much more for this game. There are some problems with the game the designers should take to notes but otherwise it is decient old style of game.

Good Parts:

Graphics nice looking creatures.
Mimicing combat like 'Final Fantasy' easy yet still turn based.
Being a small fairy was intresting.
Nice assortment of skill upgrades.
Intresting loot. Simple interface.

Bad Parts:

SPACE BAR - I didn't like the fly ability was mapped to tab key it should be mapped to space bar like every other game.
The space bar key instead was used to pull up the interface which annoyed me even several hours later
I would be hitting that sometimes.

No voice over - This game is 2014 you should have voice over in this day in age even if its bad voice overs.
No variety of music - The music doesn't change or respond much if at all to the enviroment or action taking place.
No variety in game - The entire game consisted of either talking / fighting / finding. Granted that is common to most games but lacking the voice over and music made this more apperent.

Overall the game is good if you liked games like "Final Fantasy VIII" for 10 years ago.

The game had a few glitches, speficially when your toolbar is on the top. It kept cutting to the windows 8 start screen randomly. I take it because the game did not control the mouse right. It also glitched quite a bit that only an Alt+Tab could fix. Pretty annoying.

The storyline was decent, but you had to read it all vs having talking. The option to skip most of it was great, the game play was just like any other turn based, but way easy. Even on the hardest difficult, there was not much of a challenge. The 2 companions following you around while you look for people etc (getting in your way, especially on the pirate ship) was annoying as well.

The game was good, but not worth what I paid for it in my opinion. It has no replay value. 12 hours was what it took me to fully beat it, however, most of that time was spent with me afk due to kid aggro or getting bored and then alt tabbing to look at other stuff then coming back. If steam had a star system, I would do 2 stars simply becase it was entertaining, just the few bugs / glitches as well as the lack of replay value.

This game is cute. You probably won't die a thousand times during the fights (they get repetitive pretty soon) and in most quests you can find an another way to fulfill your goals (mostly running around and collecting things and using them up). The quests are easy enough and when you level up, you choose your abilities and bonuses, so your character gains new tattoos, limbs etc.

What annoyed me sometimes: the flying. Especially when you are forced to do it in a dark and narrow cave or when you are playing an elevator bc you are searching for an NPC or a place and the maps are useless. 3D exploration is fun and being a fairy is fun too, but also irritating! :)

The biggest problem is that this game is supposed to have a sequel, I guess? I actually thought that there will be a big boss fight or something, but I only got the ending scene and a "To be continued" line.

(Not sure about this score. Probs not going to replay this game.)

Seeking a very simple 100% acheivement "Perfect Game"? This one is it!
Seeking a game that takes 10+ hours to finish, look elsewhere.

It's a very pretty game and I particularly like the way your avatar changes based on the choices of gear and magical upgrades. Combat is fairly simple and the spell graphics are rather nice. The immersion of feeling very tiny, at times, was interesting.

I wish the other mirrors worked. I wish it was longer. I wish there was a genuinely difficult quest to complete. I won't spoil the end but I wish that was different as well.

Do I recommend? Yes, but base it on price. I got it in the sale at 75% off and feel it was worth that price.
