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

Rated 4 / 5 stars

played this game for a few days

I can't stop comin back to it, its one of those "gotta level up and learn the new skills" and i have a strong desire to keep at the main cave just to see cut scenes, they are pretty darn funny :D

so far down to floor 10, all ppl level 10, its going to be an entertaining run, really great work!

The End... Or is it?

This is one heck of a game, you've really outdone yourself Lan14n! I've found myself playing for hours and have yet been bored. I don't really like reviewing a game until I've completed it 100%, however, I decided to make an exception. I've completed the Main Quest and all Side Quests.

STORY: The story is entertaining and quite humorous. Character development is refreshing and diverse. My only fault is the short length, however being a flash game is almost expected.

I absolutely love that you used a random dungeon generator. By doing this, you've made it seem like you'll never encounter the same dungeon twice. Within the dungeons you've randomized the Treasure as well as the Enemies as well. Very well done.

GRAPHICS: The animation is very well done aside from some slight flaws in combat here and there (I've already sent the faults in a PM).

SOUND: The soundtrack is AMAZING. Very original. Diversity is rather important to keep the game from seeming too monotonous, I think you've done a great job.

OVERALL: Crystal Story captured my attention, and has held it with a vengeance. My whole experience with the game has been a joy and there is so much more I could say about this masterpiece. However, since this is a review I decided to keep it brief and only touch on key points.

I understand this game is bound to have some bugs, some of which I have been able to exploit. That is why I've given this game a 9/10.

I will continue to play Crystal Story to completion (Currently Level43) and continue to keep an eye out for bugs.

There are always ways to improve a game, so If you read this Lan14n and would like my suggestions for improvements, please either reply or send me a PM.

Great game!

I love this game, been playing it over several days. It has a great soundtrack to it, and the animation is drawn pretty well. The questline outside of the main story is pretty funny, and I enjoy all the different things you added to keep the game from getting entirely monotonous. Youve also kept this game on front page for a bit- good job!
Only thing I dont necessarily like is how slow the character progression goes as far as AP. However that actually kinda balances it out so you dont get stupid powerful early on and just pwn everything on your way through. Good game overall and I will definately look forward to your future submissions!

Great Work

Its a very well made game and I'm enjoying it so far. The battle system is well set up. Although the designs for Tristan and Phoebe are too simplistic when compared to Kaili and Rueben. But all-in-all the game is amazing for a flash game.

The game is good

But forging a hammer at 1000 degrees wouldn't make a very good hammer. I think you forgot a zero.
