Edit: Mobile version can be found here:

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

Rated 5 / 5 stars

Finally a good game :D

Everything is very good, the gameplay, the battle system, the characters...
I hope u make a sequel with better menu designs, more jobs, better animations.
A sequel will be perfect if you upgrade that. I like the stats system too.


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Very solid game.

However, I agree with CurtyWurty below on how this game could be improved via an update or a sequel.

All in all, a solid game worth playing, and one that's going in my favorites to play again.

Good game, borderline great.

I'd REALLY love to see you bring out a sequel, or even merely an updated version of this game, so I'm going to take my time to make some suggestions to features of which would DEFINITELY improve the game; I don't appreciate how difficult it is to include certain features, however, so I'm going to disregard how difficult I feel a certain feature would be to implement in your game.

- Firstly. The OPTION to apply attribute points wherever a player wants to, instead of a fixed leveling system; include an info-box showing Exactly what applying a point to a specific attribute will do.
(It is much more helpful to be able to specialise your own characters, based on their classes)

- Include SCROLL-OVER info boxes for EACH character in the inventory screen and (especially) the shop interface that compare the exact stats of the currently equipped item, to the one you're selecting/scrolling over.

- For each of the skills in the inventory screen AND during battle, include the mana cost of each spell/skill, and HOW MUCH damage they do (For example, how much poison damage the poison attack will inflict each turn). This is an ESSENTIAL requirement for an RPG.
As well as that, include the percentages that a skill will succeed. E.g. Stunning and poison - Show the percentage of how likely it will stun/poison the monster you're currently scrolling over.

- Show how much damage a basic attack will do for each character, in their Stats interface. You can base percentages off of this, then. i.e. "Poison will inflict 8% of the caster's basic attack damage each turn."

If these suggestions I have mentioned are implemented into your next RPG (and I'm hoping there will be one ;) ), then hoorah for us all :P

Now for my opinion :P
Your 'graphic style', it has room for improvement, sure, but it's at a very good standard as it is. There's a fairly good variety of monsters, and I personally liked the boss monsters; they were goofy and amusing, and actually a appropiately scaled challenge.

Keep it up, 'Lan', I hope you do well :)

A good game.

However, it's not without it's share of problems.

1. I have to agree with a previous review that the shortcut keys should have been continued past one menu, as I found it tedious to not being able to select the skill, item, or enemy with a keyboard shortcut.

2. The random generator is a good thing but it should really only apply to enemies and not the treasure chests. This causes a problem because I found it difficult to not continuously go back and forth between rooms and farm for items. I got many powerful items simply doing that.

3. Walking with the mouse was a bit strange for me and would have preferred to use keyboard controls.

4. The intro didn't make me enjoy any character, as they all seemed like people I would not like to do business with.

5. Spells had very little description and I had difficulty deciding which spell was actually better, since they didn't have base stats. Most RPGs tell you the base power for a skill, so you know if you will actually deal more damage with a certain attack than another. Also, it would have been very helpful if I knew if a skill did physical or magical damage, unless all of the fighter skills are physical and all of the mage's skills are magical.

6. A monster logbook would be extremely helpful. Since some skills state they do a certain type of damage, knowing what would be most effective would be nice. The monster logbook doesn't even need to be easy to get, it could be that you would have to buy the information from someone or that you would need a skill to gather information on a target, but most RPGs have a monster logbook.

All in all, this was a fun game to play, just needing a bit of improving.
