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

I enjoyed playing this

This is a good old-style rpg. I, however found some of the dialogue to be choppy. Without real closure or introductions. That's only a minor thing though. The major part of this is the gameplay. While repetetive, it was tedious, which I like in rpgs.

1 thing that I would constitute as a "bug" I suppose you could call it. Attacks that deal damage AND have a status effect (I.E. Tranq. Shot) will still do their status effect EVEN if they "miss".

Also, I can't really tell if you meant to do this, but, Moves like Fire Strike seem to depend on magic power rather than your actual attack power? That would be alright if you didn't learn it in the fighter's tree. That also seems redundant, considering that you already can learn a fire move from the mage's tree.

So far, other than smoothing out some edges to the system...I really like this. The battle view reminded me heavily of Breath Of Fire II. I also hope you are inspired for a possible sequel. I don't write reviews often...I felt this deserved it. Thank you for the experience!

Thanks. I had attack and status effects calculated separately. This is so Accuracy stat won't be overpowered, and you would need resistance if you want to counter it. Warrior first skill (except phoebe i think) deal magic damage. I made it like that so you can hurt monsters with less mdef even without a mage on the party.

I find this RPG highly entertaining. A few things though:

- I think that if you added a music or sound mute button, or even just some sound options, I think not only me, but other players would appreciate this.
-A Run button would be nice, but even if you do not add one, it still creates a situation where players must use potions, spells, or just completely avoid a part of the map.

Otherwise, REALLY good job.

Thanks for putting in the time to create such an enjoyable game.

Wierd Glitch

Whenever i get into combat the only one who dose anything is Tristam the enames don't attack and no matter how many times i skip turn none of the other part members get a turn.

Lan14n responds:

I do not understand what you mean. Please give me more information. It sounds like a huge bug.

Awesome game!

I love it a lot, but one thing I think would be great to add would be the option of upgrading weapons you have in your inventory too--not just the ones your characters have equipped.
