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

Good but interface problems

I like the game, as far as gameplay goes its alright. Classic combat that works well (if a bit bland). Dungeon system thats simple yet effective.

Art and sounds are sweet.

Story is meh. Uninteresing even for something thats basicaly a joke.

I don't like how confusing and obtuse the inventory system is. I have to click a whole lot just to be able to compare equipment..thats too long. Let us see all the relevant stats right there and then, so at a glance i can decide what to use.
Equipment level is unreliable, for high level stuff can be worst than low level ones.
Oh and we cant see equipment stats in the inventory screen.. or "equip" screen..
Leaving the player in the dark for critical information isnt fun/good design.

I dont like the AP leveling system, again, information is hiden from us and we are poking in the dark to know what the stuff we get does.. after we paid for it. Big mistake there. Its important to know that BEFORE we buy stuff, otherwise we are forced to pay big bucks to reset AP if the "thing" happen to not be what we want/need. And its just plain unfair for the player. Im here to play and have FUN, poking in the dark isnt fun.
Just make it a small popup window/text that give us a quick, yet fully clear info on the skill/item or whatever happen to be needed.

Boss battles are cheap, why let the boss regen at 100% and change stance when you could just double his HP at the start and change his behavior at 50%. Same result, less frustration due to showing the player that all he did was for nothing.

8 of 10 for gameplay and all that. You lose 2 points for hiding critical info from the player.

Best flash submission ever?

I have a hard time seeing why this was voted as the best flash submission in actuality. It is a mindless grind-fest, thirty levels full of enemies with nothing to really entertain you amidst all that but short 10 dialogue-box-long cutscenes every five levels with some sidequests thrown about which are not innovative at all. I kept going just because of my obsession to fucking finish this, and so did everyone else, I assume.

I'll give it that, it was enough to keep me entertained for a long time, but it's VERY slow paced, shallow and unbalanced, as much as it kept me playing, it was far from deserving as much praise.

I give it an honest 8 because it's not a bad game, it's just highly overrated. Good job though and don't take this too personally.
