Quite Generic

As generic as they come, I'm afraid. The game plays on nostalgia and a few mild references to known titles, but it doesn't go much farther than that. The models, even for 8-bit, are very uninspired, the world looks empty and barren and it feels like it's made to not satisfy anyone, even if you're a retro gamer. It tries, but fails. Fighting is traditional turn-based combat with very unsatisfying graphic response. Stay away unless you're the most die-hard fan of RPG ever. It doesn't bring back memories of the golden days of 8-bit gaming as much as it would like to.
