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:
C:\Users(username)\AppData\Roaming\Macromedia\FlashPlayer\#SharedObjects\(so me number)\uploads.ungrounded.net\579000\579445_rpg.swf
The file names should be rdgDataSlot(number)

After going for everything, I got a positive - but mixed - opinion overall. As a RPG and what makes one it, the game is very good, and, well, that's about it. Simple without being unpolished, entertaining for the first "half" of it, then becomes increasingly boring. Difficulty is a joke - The only challenges are zombie defenses, and sometimes, luck kicks in and makes it also a breeze (Tips for minigame down below).

Positive points:
- Simple and entertaining, at least before the dragon is defeated the 1st time
- Quite intuitive gameplay
- Good package (nice original art, music, code without bugs)
- Job system for characters

Negative points
- Lack of challenge. The game is incredibly easy at all times - since there's no "cap" for equipping items, just rush to floor 49 and keep grinding there. Equip the lvl 49-50 items on everyone and you're good to finish the final boss - The dropped gold also provides infinite potions and ethers
- No online saves to this date (Well, at least there's a disclaimer on about backing up our saves)
- Game is EXTREMELY GRINDY. In order to get the lvl 50 medal, one needs to equip the exp ring and kill a LOT of mobs. Which isn't really needed, as the final boss can be consistenly killed long before anyone hits 45.

In short: Good game, but take a weekend off in order to fully complete it.

Floor 21, all chests contain 420 gold, well played.
Reuben has no excuse for being such a dick all the time.
