Crystal Story is a turn based rpg that uses a random dungeon generator. You control four characters and configure what skill sets they learn along the way. You can earn equipment upgrades that will help you traverse through Evil Cave by destroying monsters or playing minigames.

Whoa thanks for the reviews! I love you guys! :D

Excellent work.

A nice addition to the rpg standard, I believe.

I liked how each floor randomized, with different enemies. The mini-games and boss fights were interesting, and the story engaging. Can't really say much more, I'm the type of person who notices faults (glass half-full and what-not).

I didn't like how the side-quests were based off levels and not on story progression. As I write this review, my characters sit at level 23 and have just defeat the Ultimate Dargon, yet I can't start the next chain in the thief side-quests.

The buffs and debuffs are far too overpowered, in my opinion. In the above example, Ultimate Dargon's nova, if left unchecked, would wipe my party in one hit. Rotating through Shell All and Shear, it now its for 60, easily taken care of by Regen All. Poisons tick for a % of health, meaning that the one rogue point in Phoebe's tree (she's healing) does far more damage than a full mage Kaeli, who happens to have 2 magic Legendaries.

There were a couple instances, mainly in the white rings, that the description did not match the actual stat gain. On a similar note, Dragoon (attack polearm) does not have an upgrade cost.

Finally, on rather large bosses (again, Ultamite Dargon is a good example) the shadow would cover Tristam's first buff/debuff, meaning I had to remember what it was to act accordingly.

Like I said, I'm nit-picky, but things like those really can make or break a game. Be thankful you can fix and re-upload a new copy, big-time companies usually don't have that luxury. And good work, it's only one of a few games I've dedicated more than a couple days to playing.

Awesome bugs! Thanks! The Dragoon bug is pretty bad and I found some that are missing prices too. Will fix in the next update.

Epic...

The only way to describe such a game... Why is this not a REAL game!?!?!
I must say that, for a flash game, its truly a remarkable play.

nicely done

This game rocks! I loved the music choice, it went well with this game! The artwork was pretty good. I really enjoy turn based rpg games! I think they're cool! Let me list the pros and cons of Crystal Story.

Pros: random dungeon set everytime you enter and re enter Evil Cave, each class (Rogue, Mage, Fighter, Healer) has unique spells, each hero specializes in a unique weapon type, the ability to not ONLY buy and sell equipment, but also upgrade your weapons, armor, and miscellanious (accessory) items is a plus. I also like that you can save your progress and the fact that when you kill a new monster you'll find that its data is already saved in your bestiary!

Ok here comes the one thing that kept me from giving you a perfect 10!

Con:Whenever you level up, your max HP (health) and max MP (magic / mana) increases, but they don't refill after you level up! Ok like for example you have 100 HP and 200 MP and you level up to LVL 2! Your max HP and MP increase to 300. Your remaining HP and MP don't go up to match 300, instead they stay at 100 and 200 and you have to waste your items and your healer character(s) mana to recover HP to the new maximum HP limit.

I don't no how to make that anymore clearer,but it's what kept your game from being a 10/10! Other than that, exellent work! This game definitely deserves medals!
