Edit: Mobile version can be found here:

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

Actually amazing

I have dabbled in creating RPGs and this game has impressed me. The gameplay mechanics are clearly the work of someone good at understanding the flow between reward and effort, which is the principal reason i believe this game is way better than many other commercial JRPGs and dungeon crawlers.
You have my full praise, Lan14n. I hope you will continue to create role playing games.

pretty intresting

the game is intresting and fun , I didn't stop playing until i looked at the time which is now around 4am from 2am .

Note glitchs

-I noticed that on the main page where the characters states are didn't change once i've heal them with my characters abilities or item. Even tho i shouldn't the "random" generator works in peoples favor once you find out about the treasure popping up , I'll note you once i start playing again (in an hour probably or another time lol)
-Animation there aren't many animation movements from the characters or enemies when attacking and i haven't gotten "cursed" or anything yet but there aren't to many animation (at least that i noticed that throws off the flow a little).
-The Characters equipment even tho it isn't really necessary but it doesn't show how the equipment looks or that there weapons even changed.

Well Continue your work your doing great man :)

It's a fun game with an overall cute look to it! The story seems interesting far what I've seen so far. The best part of this game by far is the game play. It takes me back to those class RPGs from the SNES where you're characters would take turns attacking the enemy and then they would attack you. It's a lot of fun I can't wait to see what else this game has in store.

I do have one criticism however, the lack of movement in the battles is depressing. The characters just pause for a second, make an stationary attack and you see at slash on the target enemy. Personally I find this boring and feel that actually animation the characters hitting each other would go a long way to making this a perfect game.

Thanks for the game, it's very fun and the music is quite enjoyable as well!

I very much like games like these, but there were a few hitches here and there. My main problem was with the movement system. I'll talk about it soon.

The graphics: The graphics were wonderful, and I thought it had a kind of cel-shaded look, if it was. The monsters were drawn wonderfully and the characters more so; the tilesets and the character in the dungeon in the overworld view was convincing, but lacked detail, but I guess that comes when you're naturally looking from above.

The music, sounds: The music was chosen nicely, and portrayed the correct situation at the correct time; an example I liked was the dungeon, and the battle music. The battle music was fast-paced, and the dungeon music was slow and eerie. Nice job on that.

The animation: It was fluid, and was fast. Now that's not a problem; rather the opposite. If anything, that's good, however in the battle scene the character animations being fast posed a minor problem, since I found the enemies' attacks a bit too fast for my eyes to even notice what has happened to the character.

The gameplay: Not bad, I quite liked the battle system and the level system; for one I didn't find it too hard to level up, although I can't really say this on others' behalf. However, I did find a flaw: I don't really like point-n'-click games, or at the very least moving in the overworld was a bit tough since I normally move using the arrow keys. Perhaps you could've added an option to switch from arrow keys and mouse buttons, but then again it could've been there and I might not
have noticed.

But all in all, a good game, one that I'd like to play for quite a while. Then again, I remember seeing an exact clone in RPG Maker XP, except there I could control the character with the arrow keys. It's your choice to decide whether that's good or bad. I'm leaning more towards the bad.

~~ Summary ~~

~~ Good points ~~
1) Nice animation
2) Nice music
3) Good graphics
4) Good gameplay

~~ Bad points ~~
1) Could not control with arrow keys.
