Ragnarok Eternal is a tale of burrito, grinding, cash shops, and griefers. Don't worry about today's date, this game requires a 12 week playthrough to complete. If you enjoyed the game, please support Gravity co. by following the Blizzard Diablo 3 model and purchase digital gears with real money in a balanced multiplayer game.

Stockholders, chocolate, etc, happy april fools.

...

now the NG version had a lot of the flashy effects thrown out of the window because there are too many flash apps on the screen already

so if you want to play the version with full effects and NO LAG, follow this link:

Sorry for not working this out properly.

--- known issues ---
1. jumping through lava pit will make your character disappear: please do not attempt to access unfinished content
2. slide kicking Zealotus to death will make your character disappear: my bad

also will include map and keyboard based dialogue in future releases, thanks for the complaints, meant a lot.

As a veteran of Ragnarok Online, and an avid Metroid/Castlevania fan I can safely say a few things about this wonderful submission:

1.) The mash up was brilliant.
While not exactly perfect, the theme and story of the game was enough to make me want to keep playing and delve into this world.

2.) Equipment
Having a small, but useful array of gear is nice. Much better than 10,000 different choices that sport no variety. I liked being able to swap weapons on the fly with the E key as well.

3.) Enemies
The way you interpreted Ragnarok Online's enemies into a side scrolling action game was brilliant. I almost freaked out when I found my first Injustice and did not want to be on the receiving end of his Sonic Blow special. Marionettes, golems, zombies, skeletons, Owl Duke (I think it's Duke, I don't remember) they were all seamlessly represented in a great way.

As much as I might regret saying this, I was surprised that I didn't find any Mimics (oh god I hate those things).

4.) Combat
The combat was fun, and never really got old. I could see me playing this game for a long time (well if it was a finished product anyway) and enjoying every second of it.

5.) Skills
While I should just include this under Combat, I'm not.
The skills were unique and fun. The up+atk and fall+down+atk moves reminded me of Zelda 2 (which is good) Blade Beam was really fun (I always wished my Lord Knight could do that)

6.) Stats kind of confused me for a bit. Stars is definitely different. I was expecting a stat table with points but this worked out nicely too.

Overall:
I love it. A brilliant mash up that seamlessly brings together many elements from successful game archetypes and doesn't leave me feeling like anything wasn't done justice.

I sincerely hope you plan on finishing this project (and perhaps expanding it a little...perhaps character classes? Or Job advancement?)

This game is ABOVE 100%, if I could vote more than 5 on it, I would.

thanks for the long and detailed review, along with praises enough to last me through winter. The rest of the game will hopefully be on par with what you've had so far.

Oh yeah, and thanks for reminding me about mimics, will throw some in there.

A well-made Metroidvania is a rarity these days. I hope you really are considering making a full game out of this.

Some other names for people to try, aside from the one that you can find out ingame:

Hisao Nakai / Hisao Necktie (+ item)
Megaman Zero / Rockman Zero (+ item)
Kenshu (+ item)
Evan Incognito (start with ABSOLUTELY NO STAT OR SKILL POINTS; I think this is how you unlock the "beat the boss with no stat points" secret, incidentally)

ShadowWhoWalks responds:

very nice, did you take the swf apart? I didn't expect players to dig out the other names as well.
Just to clarify, the last name is just a placeholder, and the game will not reward you for beating it with no stat/skill points invested, the message was just something for ballers to ball through the game. I still need to come up with appropriate reward for players who are balling out of control.

Thanks for the review, full content will be delivered as soon as possible.
