REVIEW OF DESTINY
Author: Paladin Phantom Snake
Reviewed by: Slade
In my opinion, there was no real intro, just credits, and four or
five lines of text.
The 35% comes from the cool credit-pictures.
With the exception of a couple of tiles, all I can say is DEFAULT,
DEFAULT, and DEFAULT.
And to make things worse, at some locations, the tiles were really abused,
like the fact that the "snowy trees" had a different snow behind them then the
snowy ground, thus creating a horrible line around every tree.
Also, mixing characters from different character-sets is not a good idea,
since some characters were huge in comparison to the others.
My suggestion is: Stick to characters that look alike in proportion!
However, not all was bad, I REALLY liked the bats, they were AWESOME!
Not that they were graphically spectacular, but they REALLY set the
mood for the cave!
None, but of course this doesn't affect the overall score!
The sounds in the game were great! but the fact that ALL of the music was ripped
off from known games, like Final Fantasy, and Tales of destiny, I cannot give
it more than 70%
Okay, okay, the story isn't original at all, your father, who is the greatest hero
ever, dies, and you have to save the world.
Also, the presence of five crystals, which you have to liberate from the forces
of evil, seems awfully familiar.
There were no MAJOR bugs, but here and there I found annoying bits, like the difficulty.
In the beginning of the game, enemies were REALLY difficult, and came in hordes,
overwhelming you, and later, your characters became too powerful.
The variation of enemies was lousy, at each location, I encountered one group of enemies,
and after a while, that gets tiresome.
Also, I have 2 questions:
1, WHY can you get unlimited apples in the first house? and
2, WHAT are the apples for?
Final Score: (55%)
Mediocre game, but lots of room for improvement.
