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

Meh...

I am a huge RPG fan, I have played one of atleast every type of RPG and RPG series out there.

The reason I didnt like this so much, even though it is a great game is because... of unoriginality.

Battle system, level system, item system, and character designs aswell as names are all stolen prettty much or tweaked barely.

Level system- Dragon Quest. Its almost exactly like it, some name changes and instead of stat increases you give buff spells. It even has omnislash for some characters.

Character Designs- Tristam looks like goku, and has his outfit just recolored oraneg n red instead of blue n orange. he has similar hair n face expressions and movements except wields a katana.

Kaeli looks EXACTLY Like Tifa in her redone look in Advent Children Cinema. The only differense is one again re colors, make everything black and vwala. also she wilds a bow.

Phoebe is Ramona from Scott Pilgrims twin, even wields a hamemr and has a weapon names ramona. just recolor and take goggles off.

And finally Reuben... he actually looks very uinique actually... but very bland he wears a t shirt with a long sleeve under adn ahoody he lets down like a samurai coat when he fights... im so so for him.

fighting is just like final fantasys/ dragon quests. But thats not a biggy since thast teh genre so. but allot of attacks are names the same.

Some animations are lazy and when ever someone uses a melee skill or spell they so the same animation, even like frost strike and the frost spell stuff like that they looks exactly the saem just different attack variable.

Even though this is a recurring problem in every video game, you use alot of over used monsters even stole some like slimes. skeletons and other such monsters are to corny but thats not your fault. I only blame you for takine monsts like slime and even having slime king and such.

Walkign around looks really lame how it has oen sprite animation.

I do however love the random dungeon and i like the random weapon stats. it is a well balanced game and its fun but.. i think htat because you took so many elements from other games, which every big game developers so now... I want to see something original for once. Newgroudns opens up a new door to endless possibilities to do that and i was hoping for more.

Anyway in conclusion, this game is fun, and i keep playing but its onlyu good because of others ideas... not yours... you seriously just pieced popular video game rpg mechanics into it.

My suggestion is, REDO your character designs, when you change weaposn the weapon actually changes, make spells and attacks of the saem element and power level so different animations, have them do a unique animation for spells attacks and skills, like when Tristam uses his flam strike he does a kamehameha stance and somehow the enemies slashed then fire spurts out. Make that a sword swing animation but different from the attack one.

If it was your truest attention to mimic final fantasy, dragon quest, star ocean etc then thats sad if not thats uncanny but i doubt u didnt. im sorry if i seem to rough with my criticism but that my opinion. It IS a good game though. Obviously many people like it so be proud but I implore you, please be mroe unique and put in diffferent character designs etc.

If you would like I will provide character designs for you that are unique and not from major manga/anime/video games.

Very Enjoyable

Things I love about this game:

- The character graphics were fantastic.
- Top down movement interface is very intuitive and much like that in many other adventure games. Combat is also kept intuitive, nothing complicated for a user to learn.
- The wandering monster reactions and the ability to see and move around them in real-time is a cool adventure game feature you don't always see.
- The combat screen is not 2d and you actually animated character attacks very well.
- The ambient music is kinda creepy.
- My FAVORITE thing about this game was the point-click movement and combat screen. I am not a console gamer and I'm not a huge fan of scrolling through combat choices. Using the mouse like that is awesome, major props for that.

The only things I did not enjoy so much:
- The initial cut scene was really really slow and I wanted to play really fast. I had to skip it but would have liked to know the whole story as well. A story summary if you skip the initial cut-scene would be nice.
- I use a high resolution and reading the screen was difficult at times. This was particularly frustrating when the characters were being introduced the first time. An options item that allows some kind of text manipulation may have helped.

Altogether a very enjoyable game. Thank you for making it.

Enjoyed this a lot!

Loved the game. Played it for 3 weeks! Legend Weapons Exist
(DON'T SELLTHEM!!! I MISS YOU DRAGOON!)
Amazing game lots of fun tinkering around with strategies.

End game strat*

Tristam: Rogue, Fighter(Rocket Launcher=Omnislash+stun proc per hit) S Ninja Ring for Increased speed for quick Haste all to start the fight out clean.
Kaeli: Rogue, Healer (S War Ring= Good heals stupid damage) Quickshot spam main DPS
Phoebe: Fighter, Rogue(Ramona best legendary Att wep, Final Heal skill is single target... T.T) Disruption Ult+ att all= gg to all bosses.
Reuben: Aww this guy is all around badass but his Final Healer Skill is All Heal+All Defense+all Regen. So put an epic or Legendary Magic Weapon(Icy Chill)= GG Dargon easy mode.... Sub Mage for extra MDPS when heals are not necessary.

One of the most fun games I've ever played. Can't wait for the creator to create another game! I would even pay money for that. :)
