Truly Excellent

I am reviewing this in-progress, just past the volcano in the ice area.

A truly awesome game (And from a fellow scotsman too!)
You get 10/10 in spite of flaws, because there's just so much effort and awesomeness. The art is simple but cute and wonderfully effective ^__^
My only complaint about it is the shoop face that randomly appears as a hit reaction. It looks silly, like many things, but it seems out of place and isn't very cute.

The combat system does have a Final Fantasy feeling, although I feel there's a problem with giving the player too many options. I have two menus full of spells for every character, and while they all have their use somewhere, many are redundant and their job done better by other spells.

Also problematic I feel, is the health/mana regen system. Adding -any- passive regen, no matter how slow, to this kind of game, just breaks things. I have an unused stockpile of healing and mana restoring items, because they're almost useless. I rarely go through my whole mana supply in one battle unless I was careless enough to not heal first and go in with low mana.

The enemy levelling system is also a bit problematic. It never worked when Final Fantasy 8 did it, and it doesn't work here either. Having enemies constantly match your level does not, in practice, make the difficulty consistent. Your particular implementation seems to scale the enemies' HP more than their damage, so as I progress in the game I'm becoming constantly more powerful than the enemy, yet their durability is going through the roof. Several turns are spent unnecessarily pounding on punchbag enemies with massive HP and poor damage output. It just slows the pace of the game down (and RPGs are already slow) and isn't fun.

I love the music. The battle theme has a place in my heart forever. It really makes the atmosphere of the game.

I feel there's a balance issue with Matt's swords. You save up and buy the Soul Eater, then there's not really any reason to use anything else. Adding some element your enemy is weak to doesn't really compare to increasing your damage by 80%, and the Unleash attack on that weapon is just silly damage. It makes everything else I've found so far, obsolete.

For a sequel or possible update, I would suggest the following changes:

1. Remove passive regen from walking around. If you still want regen, make it something non-exploitable, like regenerating a set % of HP/Mana after each battle. As is, you can walk into any fight at peak condition by wandering around for a few secs first, and the non-random nature of the battles makes this very exploitable.

2. Increase damage done by enemies, make them more of a threat. The only thing so far that makes me break a sweat is running into four self-destructing rocks in one battle, and even those couldn't finish me off.

3. More boss battles. They are too widely spaced. Turtles with 10 million HP don't count.

4. Less redundant skills, or make the skill choices more meaningful.

But overall, I love it!

Great game, but...

I keep having troubles with walking around. Sometimes I'll be walking left, and suddenly the character starts walking up, and no matter what I do he won't stop, so I have to refresh the page. This has happened several times. I have gotten some good gameplay in though, and it is a fantastic game. Just try to fix that problem and it will be perfect.
