This is an RPG game where you play as Magus from Chrono Trigger.
The game itself is meant to be a continuous story from after CT.

Q: What does these diffrent Items do?
A: Tonic: Heals 30HP
Ether: Heals 15MP
Elixir: Heals 60 of each(HP & MP)

Q: Why can't I use items outside of Battle?
A: Well, you can use Items outside of battle. Just press M to open up the menu and the press on "Equipments" and there you have it.

Q: How do you fight when you are in battle?
A: You just need to choose what actions you want to do. Attack, Techs or Items. When it says "MISS" that's when the Enemy Miss (same goes for Critical Hit).

Q: Those imps are to hard. How do I defeat them?
A: Well, be sure to have the Raven Armor equipped (You find it in Viper Manor). It should make them miss a lot more. But they can still hurt you with their spells. Now that you can see the enemy HP it shouldnt be too hard. When the Imp has 50hp or lower he will start to heal himself. Thats your chance to kill him. So as long as you keep his HP under 50 he cant harm you (almost) at all.

Q: The Boss in the Castle is impossible! How do I beat it?
A: She is actually easier than you think. First of all you should be level 14 when encountering her (So be sure to train before the battle). The key here is to Spamm with Dark Matter (You'll get it at lvl 13). You should also have the "Raven Armor" equipped. Be sure to have the Elixir ready (It will save you for sure). When she starts to heal herself thats when she's weak, so finish her of with a Dark Bomb or something. But she can get multiple Magic Attacks, so watch out for her x3 Lightning.
Don't heal up before the battle. You will get full HP & MP automaticly.
Took me almost 2 months to do and I’m sorry for the file size (The music tends to take up a lot).

Good Luck!

Okay, so, I decided to replay this for the first time in fifteen years. It definitely shows that its a 2005 game, but in a way that makes it such a surreal experience. Like, Magus barely says anything beyond denying that he's Janus, it tries to do something with the Time Devourer but accidentally becomes a kinda-not-really prequel to Radical Dreamers(?), and also its just weirdly grindy on purpose. Like, the whole game is ten minutes long, but eight of those are just grinding up until you get Dark Matter, with the rest of the game after that point being just nuking the shit out of everything with it.

Like, its easy to say "this bad", but I'm mot sure if I necessarily dislike it? Like, its just such a weird flash in the pan type deal. I have no clue how to feel about this.

Ok so I absolutely loved the concept for this. Was a huge fan of the whole Final Fantasy franchise up to FF7. The story is a good start. I feel like this is a really good foundation to build more from. If you were able to build more of a world you would have an amazing game on your hands. If you used original content, like change the character but use the similar graphics and your game mechanics you could have something really great. Looking forward to your next game.

I feel bad for not knowing more about Magus. I'm not much of a "Chrono Trigger" fan. This is a great game you've created. The title's generic, but that's fine. It's very easy to understand everything. Maybe that's why I don't like MOST RPGs.

The music was really good. It's just a nice, soft game. I can appreciate that. The sprite work is done so well. You just have so much time and space to do everything.

This was pretty good! It was a bit short, but for the most part a very good example that you have the potential to make a really massive and great RPG!
Good music,
Good story,
Why were you stingy with the items and weapons?

Because this sample was short, I'm giving it a 4.5, but don't worry, I'm sure your next submission will be fiveworthy! You did a great job

great! make another one like this!
