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

Edit: I have been hearing a lot about save files recently. You can backup your save files here:

Don't get me wrong - the game's really fine and I'm glad I was able to play it, but it's still not perfect. Most things probably have been mentioned, so I'll just focus on the bugs, stuff that annoyed me the most and some tips that might help other players.

- When you're being attacked by an enemy just before you switch a map, you're going to start a fight right after changing location - even if it means a battle with no enemies, getting no loot, money or experience. You weren't planning on making it possible, were you?
- When Kaeli kills an enemy with first attack of Double Shot, she doesn't hit another enemy or stop the attack - she just hits the air and still deals damage (sic!). Here's a question - what are they going to breathe when she kills the whole air in the dungeon? (But - really - you could work on that skill or simply make dying animations a bit longer.)
- Healers are useless, in my humble opinion. Items are much better - they seem to have less 'cooldown' (I still haven't figured out the whole speed thing, but character do seem to act faster after using an item than after a spell) and can be used on any character by ANY character - which means you can actually turn a mage into healer by simply using a few potions in combat - and still be able to deal some serious damage.
- There are also other balance issues. Magic is very powerful and gets pretty much overpowered with time; non-massive attacks become useless as the game progresses. Combat becomes way too easy after some time.
- Feeding slime gives you way too good rewards. I mean, come on - five high quality dishes and you've got yourself a legendary item? Aren't they suppose to be rare or something? This way you can just save the game and load it over and over until you get a nice, legendary item you need. Not fair, I'd say. (Also, the seeds - let's face it - suck. +1 speed or a powerful artefact that can actually raise your speed more than usual, 'purple' items? I don't see much of a choice.)
- The menus are weird. Seriously, I have no idea how to load a save or get back to the main screen after starting a game. Also, I can only guess which spell uses which skill. Some equations would be nice. And when it comes to selling... Let's just say a few simple buttons would save me extra 5 minutes every time I'm trying to sell some loot.
- Either I'm not every smart, or the hard and expert modes are a bit TOO hard. Even with some luck and clicking as fast as I can, I wasn't able to win. (Maybe because I don't like such games and I gave up very easily. But still.)

OK, maybe it's enough complaining (for now, at least!). I'll also post a few tips, in case someone's having some problems with the game:
- About the classes - don't waste your characters on healers. As I've said, they're not worth it. Try to get as many characters with massive attacks as possible. Tristam is a great rogue or mage (warrior is worth using if you have 30 APs to spare), Kaeli can stun as a mage, but her true potential lies in the rogue class, you'll simply love Phoebe's stuns as a warrior, but you can also try to make her a rogue and Reuben can be a great mage, but also not so bad warrior. Try to suit your style and don't be afraid to change classes often.
- About the items - try to get as much speed and accuracy as you can. Yes, purple and orange items are much better, but if you're able to get high level white/green stuff with great bonuses (for the moments), don't be a I-have-to-look-epic!-player and don't be ashamed to switch some stuff. Just be careful not you sell your artefacts. Also, use armory as often as possible.
- Do all the side quests. Can't have too many APs.
- If you're bored of constant fighting on higher levels, try to avoid enemies that don't drop high quality food. Trust me, with your enormous damage and massive attacks, you can have a lot lower level than your enemies.

Well, I'm running out of characters for the review. What can I say - it's a really entertaining game, but it does need some changes. Please, work on it and/or make a second part!

Great Game!

Well like i said above this is clearly a great game. I don't intend to give you all those little details about bugs like most of my predecessors did but i wanted to hint a bug that i haven't read about in the review section below.

Every time i load the game my mage and healer class (Tristam, Reuben) lack 3 MP. And trust me i am more than 100% sure i visited the inn before saving cause that's what i always do. Not a major problem but i thought i'd let you know.

Oh and you could try to fix the move bug. By that i mean that when you click to move around it sometimes bugs out so that it automatically "spams" the mouseclick

Lan14n MUST READ THIS

THIS IS A GREAT GAME ALREADY, YET IT STILL HAS PLENTY OF ROOM TO GROW.

1. Lacks HOTKEYS, a.) for inventory b.) for skills c.) for equipment d.) AND THE MOST IMPORTANT, for using items. It's killing everyone, clicking all the way to the inventory just so I could heal.

2. TOO MUCH CLICKING ON USING ITEMS and HEALING, it's killing everyone, clicking the item and the heal skill again and again after each use. Maybe you could make this continuous so we don't have to "CLICK ITEM/HEAL, CLICK CHARACTER" over and over again.

3. TOO MUCH CLICKING ON SELLING, when we have rare things we don't wanna sell and they stack up, to be able to sell common items we have to "CLICK NEXT, CLICK ITEM, CLICK SELL" over and over again. Maybe it shouldn't go back to the first set of items after selling.

4. TOO MUCH CLICKING ON EQUIPPING, it's killing everyone when the screen goes back to the character screen AFTER UNEQUIPPING.

5. GIVE THE ITEMS THEIR STATS and NOT COMPARE THEM ON YOUR OWN, it's killing everyone that you underestimate their knowledge of comparing items for themselves.

6. GIVE AN EQUATION ON HOW SKILLS COMPUTE FOR DAMAGE in the SKILL DESCRIPTION, the offensive ROGUE SKILLS of TRISTAM are VERY UNPREDICTABLE, I'm having a hard time which stat increases they're efficiency. The SKILL DESCRIPTION SHOULD ALSO INFORM IF A PARTICULAR SKILL DOESN'T CRITICAL,
like the magic skills, or if it has LOWER ACCURACY than ordinary attacks, such as QUICKDRAW, TRITON'S WRATH, OMNISLASH and ROGUE SKILLS.

7. INCREASE THE HP OF SOME MONSTERS TO 5X-10X, the battles don't last long enough for ANY SIGNIFICANCE FOR USE OF DISABLING SKILLS. Maybe you could also multiply the exp to 5X-10X to compromise for the HIGH HP. ADD VARIETY WITH THE HP's also so as NOT TO BECOME REPETITIVE. With this, you could even lessen monsters per map so everybody would have the FEELING of HUNTING FOR STRONG MONSTERS, which is MUCH BETTER than the REPETITIVE FEELING of KILLING PLENTY OF WEAK MONSTERS WITH ONE SKILL.

8. THE DISABLES TAKE EFFECT EVEN IF THE ATTACKS MISS.

THE GAME IS JUST LACKING IN TECHNICAL ASPECTS WHICH COULD BE EASILY IMPROVED IF YOU MAKE A SECOND RELEASE, GREAT GAME OVERALL. GOOD JOB!

Very addictive!

Another amazing game that truly defines the meaning of RPG. I like how you get to choose the class for each character whereas most games have them preset. Also, I noticed that even if you choose the same class for different characters, they don't have the same spells which is spectacular. The one thing that bothers me is the fact that there are goddamn slimes! I am so sick of seeing slimes! I don't know if it's an RPG requirement, but it's just so overdone. So far for me, I haven't experienced any glitches and such so I would give the programming a thumbs up. This just got me hooked right from the start.
