About This Game

Inspired by Chrono Trigger, Final Fantasy VI, and the Dragon Quest series, you return to the land of Labyronia, now in the cold grip of an evil force. Roam the war torn lands. You are the only one who can save the planet from destruction. The epic sequel to the critically-acclaimed Labyronia.



10 years have passed since the hero of Labyronia fulfilled the Dark Prophecy.

This hero, Aeres, fought back against the four elemental beings, invading their strongholds across the land. He helped dismantle the armies of monsters that had trampled the countryside and devastated the centers of human power.

Backed into a corner, the elemental beings used their weapon of last resort: a power so bleak that it threatens to suck the life from the planet itself.

The world has gone cold, and dark. The sky is completely clouded over. Dangerous ice wraiths attack any living being that comes near them. The elemental beings cloister in their fortresses, waiting to pick humanity's bones.

It's up to the last band of human survivors to find the power to reverse this apocalypse. If they should fail, the world will be left an eternal frozen wasteland.

Key features -

  • Partly non-linear progression in a large and original world.
  • The Cue system encourages exploration. Find abnormalities to obtain skills, and challenge yourself to collect all the Cues!
  • Strategic Boss battles, and smooth combat system with Yanfly's battle engine.
  • Random battles are limited to the world map (and even there it's possible to avoid them usually.) Otherwise, all enemies are visible.

System Requirements

    Minimum:
    • OS: Windows 98, XP, Vista, 7, 8, 10
    • Processor: Intel Pentium III 800 MHz
    • Memory: 512 MB RAM

Pretty good jrpg alike considering the price of the game. Improvement in every aspect of the game compared to the first title. This game is a soft version of classic Jrpgs such as FF and Dragon Quest.

+ Smooth Music
+ Variety of Enemies
+ A little Grindy (it wont spoil the gameplay)
+ Nice maze design (with darkness)
+ Much improved questing and sense of direction compared to the first game


- The story is a bit off (It is a weak story, but this is what you can expect for this price and RPGmaker games)
- High pitch sound for menu selection is never recommended
- Very high exp monsters appear in early stages of the game making it way too easy to level beyond your calculated level(might be a pro for some)

Overall a pleasant game, consider it a weak version of Final Fantasy, Chrono or Dragon Quest games.

-Quick Review-
Labyronia RPG 2 is a RPG developed by Labyrinthine and released Aug 28, 2015. (Lets pause a moment and ask "why the heck was Labyronia RPG 1 released August 14, 2015 and Labyronia RPG 2 released August 28, 2015? Can you make RPG maker sequels in 14 days? or was this originally supposed to be one whole game? ...That would explain why the sequel starts you off at level 20 or 30. But I'm getting ahead of myself.)
synopsis: It's an RPG maker game, you can tell the developers care a great deal about the lore within their game, most people won't read the literal books in it, the sequel has minor improvements which I appreciated being added, like seeing sprites attack in the battle screen. I missed seeing people swing at monsters before numbers pop up.

-Detailed breakdown review-
Story: Welcome back to Labyronia, the story for this series is one of it's strengths (*mumbles* It's an RPG which looks like it's from the Gameboy color days of 1999. It's not like the driving features are going to be it's bedazzling special effects and graphics, or it's revolutionary game physics, or in-game realistic cut sceenes... - not like those are actually aspects all games are to be judged by, but I digress! */end mumbles*)

The story is a continuation on Labyronia RPG 1, this makes writing a review a bit sticky, because I first played through the first game before playing this (Actually that's not quite true, I stopped before fighting the 4 or was it 6 'gods' because I didn't want to grind out the experience and I felt like I was done because I got all the achievements.).
My point is, I'm familiar with these characters already, and the game kinda expects you to know who the heck "Arres" is, because they're going to talk about Arres alot, because he's kind of a big deal, he's the protagonist in the first game!

Basically crap has hit the fan, as the Starks from Game of Thrones warned everyone "winter is coming", but it was too late the land was covered in a white blanket faster then you can say "wait what". ...I guess that's note quite true because Labyronia RPG 2 takes place 10 years after the original game, but that's not funny to say.

You must assemble your party again, and confront the darkness to put an end to this infernal winter. Why did it take them 10 years to do that? I dunno, that wasn't very well explained, or my brain fell asleep. Regardless that's your job now! And the old "gods" are now your friends, so yay! they're just fancy mages that no longer age. that's why I use quotation marks... fakers...

Gameplay: Okay, RPG wise, there's not much new which you'll be surprised about. You have gear, you have levels, you have magic, you have elements which are super effective, you have defensive stats, get and equip the right gear before a boss and you'll have minimal trouble. Expect slow progression, some grinding, and random bosses to be hard for no real reason.

Oh yeah, pro tip: Equip your gear when you start the game. Because I went against the monster sieging the wall in pretty much my underpants. I won, because I'm Atratzu... but after realizing I took on a huge monster in my underpants I did blush and ask the Captain-of-the-guard to forgive the noobish mistake and promptly restarted the game and didn't use any items on the first fight my second time through. (how embarrassing!)

Other then the regular RPG elements, I don't want to go over all the same details my review for the first game did, so really quickly about the mechanics: You attack, use special abilities which use a secondary source (and depending on the type of character, builds up, or uses like magic), defend, or use items.
You can use these to come up with different strategies, yada yada yada blah blah blah... if you don't know how to play an RPG already just google "best JRPG" and buy one of those, you'll be an expert in a few hundred hours.

I noticed a few big changes from Labyronia RPG 1 and 2, aesthetically speaking these weren't necessary to play the game, but made the game actually feel like I was playing an RPG rather then a no-budget-1-man-first-project (no offense Labyrinthine, just being honest. We all start at the bottom.)
You can now see your characters attack! Originally you would chose an attack and you'd just see a swiping animation on the screen to indicate sword attacks, or a particle effect to indicate magic. Now you get to see your cute little sprite walk up to the middle of the screen and then see the animation swipe or sprite attack. ...Yeah, it's not much, but to gameplay it's a huge improvement! Feels like I have characters fighting, instead of picture frames fighting.
Additionally it's worth pointing out you can see your whole party trailing behind you, the more characters you get, the longer your Snake train gets. Not even Final Fantasy 7, Legend of Dragoon, or Pokemon (or other JRPG's I've played and forgotten the title of) did that. Probably because of hardware limitations... but I digress! a cool feature, I liked it... but very much aesthetic.

Everything else though...? Pretty much the same as the first game, except for starting out at level 20 or 30 and with Garic (if that's how you spell his name. Truth be told I will forever read his name as "Garlic", and so he's endearing to me, my little cranky old-man-vampire-repellent)

Conclusion: Well that's probably more words then anyone actually needs to know weather this is a skip or a buy. Labyronia RPG 2 goes on sale regularly, you can pick it up at a reduced price. There's not much to the game, I highly recommend playing through some of the first game before jumping into the second game. But as far as RPG's go, you could choose a worse RPG maker game.
I recommend this game to anyone who misses playing classic JRPG's, and just needs to fill that hole in his or her heart. Have fun and may Garlic be with you.

Just by playing 6 minutes I can write this kind of a review:

PROS:

-The game is cheap
-The game has pretty good controls
-Fluent gameplay
-A long game (compared to its price this game can offer a lot of entertainment)

CONS:

-No settings menu

EDIT: Well turns out there is a way to change settings. I'll quote Labyrinthine's comment here:
"You can launch fullscreen by pressing alt-enter, or additionally meddle with the screen sizes with F5/F6. There is also a settings menu if you press F1, although this is directly engine-provided and not exactly customized for the game menus."


Points: 8/10

I like the fact that the game is cheap and offers a lot of things for that low price tag, but the settings menu not being there is a big downside. But now that I heard about the things that I can change settings with, I can add up some points there :)

Maybe I played this too soon to the first one. The first Labyronia was challenging, had a good story, and I enjoyed overall. This game decided to NOT use the Labrynth mechanic of the first one on maps (so easier?) but the challenge went up on the difficult in some of hte combat. But at a certain point, it becomes simple again. Story was not as clean in this one, so hard to recommend.

I think it is worth a shot on sale if you like the first one, but not something to instant recommend.

Achivement Quest: Harder to get that the first game, but something you can achieve.

Labyronia 2 RPG is the sequel of Labyronia RPG. (Obviously, Duh!?)
Being inlove with Labyronia RPG, I am excited to play the next story but . . .

-They changed the graphics but as time passed by, you will adjust to it.
Example, the chest are well blend in the environment. (Who doesn't want easy chest?)

-The High-pitch sound. (It makes me cringed, mostly at night.)

-The battle scene and effects. (Something is not right. Maybe the status effects?)

I have to say that Labyronia RPG is way better.
Although, the story of Labyronia 2 is same as awesome as Labyronia RPG!

I have mixed feelings about this sequel. First of all, the gameplay is still turn-based RPG, which is exactly what I wanted. The world is the same as the first game, but far more bleak and hopeless (this is not a drawback to me). I got additional party members early on, and I can use one joystick for both movement and menu selection, so those improve on the original! However, I feel like the writing was weaker in the second game, possibly due to the increase in "zany" characters, who came off as irritating and not funny at all. I noticed more grammatical errors and exclamation point spam as well, which could mean I'm just being more picky with the sequel. That said, I still enjoyed the gameplay, and most of the puzzles (a few were not intuitive at all, and one made me rage-quit for a day), and I'm curious to see where the story goes from here. If you liked turn-based retro JRPGs, liked the first game, and are willing to put up with some mediocre writing, I'd say you'll like this.

Not sure why there are so many positive reviews early on, but here's my two cents. Not a bad RPG, but there are two design flaws that stopped me over 3 hours into this game:

-Lack of detail for mission progression: In other words, I saved game, and the next day I forgot what I even needed to do. It was obscure. Going back to important characters did not contain the dialogue to direct me in the right direction. I luckily succeeded by chance and progressed. Story is very confusing and not direct.

-Puzzle Mechanism: I could not get out of some puzzles, requiring a full restart. This is a problem, since one of the times I had a lot of progress that went unsaved.

Not recommended, when I compare it to the likes of Last Dream.

Basic Information
Title: Labyronia RPG 2
Developer: Labyrinthine
Publisher: Epic Quest Games
Genre: Classic-style RPG

General Impression
Labyronia RPG 2 picks up the loose ends from the first game and offers us a new map, new quests and characters, while still being as refreshingly open-ended as before. I’m glad the grinding and backtracking issues are now gone and that the writing still manages to slip a joke here and there. With Trading Cards, Achievements and a storyline that can eat up several good hours, what more can you ask from this wonderfully crafted 2D RPG? Its decent asking price does not reflect the amount of work and thinking that went into the game, that’s a certainty!

Strong Points
+ Same great storytelling as in Labyronia RPG and less grinding this time around.
+ Steam Trading Cards & Achievements.

Weak Points
- Map seems smaller than the first one in the series.

Rating 7/10

Labyronia RPG 2 is a RPGMaker, Adventure, action game. In the beginning you can see what happen in the first game so you won't be confuse. The game have a great story, a lot of things to explore, hard bosses.

Disclaimer: I was generously given a free copy of Labyronia RPG 2 with the understanding that I was expected to review the title after spending some time with it.

So I must admit that my view of Labyronia 2 is tainted before I even began playing; I had quite the negative experience with the original Labyronia and dove into the sequel only a couple days later. To my surprise, however, it appears that the developers learned a lot from their first title and polished up the sequel accordingly. Kudos on that guys!

Upon launching the game, by default it ran fullscreen and while the resolution was rather unappealing, the assets appeared to be improved enough that it wasn’t unplayable on a 1080p display. Sadly the select button is still inexplicably mapped to the O(PS4)/B(360) by default. Unlike the first Labyronia though, I was actually able to easily fix all the mappings and get a grasp of the games controls before setting off into the world. The opening itself feels like the devs learned a lot from the first game because there was a lot better guidance and exposition in the early game to direct the player. The story was no less generic (the main boss introduced at the beginning was the Father of a thousand evils) but I don’t feel that I have the right to judge much about a direct sequels narrative when I was unable to play the first game.

Overall, Labyronia 2 feels like a great application of lessons learned, but this is where my big picture judgment takes a turn. Yes, most of the originals issues were fixed, but that only brought this game up par with every other RPG Maker title. Die-hard fans of this style of RPG may get some enjoyment out of it, but there’s not that “wow” factor to distinguish it from the thousands of other games just like it flooding Steam.

DISCLAIMER: I was given a key for free by the publisher!

New updates Review after completing Game! (for my original quick first look, just scroll down)

Labyronia RPG 2 is a direct sequel to Labyronia RPG taking place roughly 10 years after the incidents of it's predecessor. Thus most of the main cast, many locations and references both cosmetic as well as story wise will make a more sense to players who have completed the first game. At the same time it has to be mentioned that it is possible to play and enjoy this one on it's own without any prior knowledge. A newcomer will make sense of the story and the relations among it's characters.

Gameplaywise is where the major differences between Labyronia RPG 2 and 1 will be noticable. Most and foremost is a more streamlined and focused approach in Labyronia RPG 2. While the first game saw the fere leave his house in the beginning and thus threw the player into an open world without any clue where to start and what to do next; as such requiring the player to call the "oldschool" ability of being able to explore on there own without any guidance.
Here in hte sequel the path forward as well as the objectives are always clear to the player. You will always know where to go to next and what to do!!!
The battles however are still dificult, expecially in the beginning and require a careful and strategic approach. Simple attack spamming won't get you anywhere, just as in the Labyronia RPG 1.


Overall I can recommend this game to everybody who enjoyed the first one and to fans of the genre who can get past the fact that this is an RPGMaker VXAce game using many default graphics, simply because there is a very nice oldschool style JRPG beneath it's surface that I enjoyed very much.

---
Quick First Look!

I really like the first Labyronia game, but I still haven't finished it and that is the reason why a quick first look at Labyronia RPG 2 will have to do (at least for now!).

Labyronia RPG 2 is still Labyronia!! Everybody who enjoyed the first one will feel right at home.
However there is one major change and that is a more focused approach to the game. This time around you will not just be thrown into an open game world without any clues; this time you will be pointed into a specific direction once the short opening sequence that functions as a basic tutorial has been finished.
However this doesn't mean that the game has become linear. Whether you are following the directions or just wander off exploring, is still up to you, the player.
The game world is still open and once again, careless rushing out will get you into trouble easily and simple attack spamming without any strategy will get you killed as fast as possible (the very first enemy got me, again XD - This is Spar....errr...Labyronia!!!).
