Absalom RPG 2

Share Collapse

Author Comments

Okay, it's out! This game is the sequel to the first Absalom, and continues where the first left off - if you haven't played the first game, you might want to visit it before you start this one. If you have played the first one, you can finally use the password that you got from it! If you played Absalom 1 but forgot your password, you can still play with a default party.

Absalom 2 features improved graphics, new combat options such as retreat and item usage, and the ability to get passwords to return to the game midway-through!

This game requires Flash 5 to play.

The first good RPG on Newgrounds, has quite the length to it. Overall I thought the moves each having a unique strategy to them was really cool, and where the art lacked, the game filled in. Improvement from the first game is noticeable, with new moves, and being able to continue from the first game's save. (minus your cards, but whatever)

The one problem I had wit the first game was solved with the password you could use to save. The characters seem to be progressing as much as a 2000's writer could really do at the time. And the whole world's "spades are hidden from history" plot is interesting. I'm not sure if Absaolm Dungeon is the next in line for the story, but if it isn't that's a shame it didn't finish. Great job again Kinsman!

5/5, 10/10

Oh, come on with the scores, guys! It's one of the first RPGs made in Flash, you can't blame people for trying. Also, I love the cards idea and I think it's one of the most creative stats system in Flash RPGs ever made. Story's also fine, can't deny that. Stop being so judgemental and try to appreciate this piece of history.

Also, if you want a good save - here's a 10 level Emma and Martanne with 99 gold for some shopping: HHPSOO.

I really like this series a lot

But it looks like there may be a memory leak in it (or in Flash itself). Firefox finally froze with 1GB memory in use!

I'm all for old-fashioned turn-based games (everything seems to be real time nowadays) but I feel I've lost too much time perfecting my card selection to start all over again. :-(

Calm down people !

Calm down people !

This game is nearly 10 Years old.

It was made with Flash 5. The first flash, which gave you the possibility to make action script based games. It´s still in the games section because it´s a classic.

Back then flashs had to be small in filesize, to load quick. That means low graphic effects and a minimum of animation and sounds. Flash 5 also wasn´t so good at compression.

My advise, take this game as a history lesson in flash games and don´t blame the maker.

Interesting

~~REVIEW~~
It was an interesting flash more like a game, i would like to see it improved, maybe remove the next buttons so its more like a movie somehow

~~THINGS TO IMPROVE ON~~
As stated above

~~OVERALL~~
Entertaining movie/game
