Battlepaths is a loot-centric and addictive 2D-RPG featuring neat monster hacking, an excellent loot system and a huge variety of character development. Learn skills, use powerfull potions, and hunt down the Chaos Overlord. The battle begins in Babatula, the first of three big realms to explore.
Battlepaths offers a sophisticated drop system that generates countless different items along with more than 50 unique items. The character customization allows you to create a unique hero with its own strengths and weaknesses. You can build a heavy, damage dealing tank, a deadly ninja that utilizes high speed and agility to attack his victims from out of nowhere, a true master of mind who crushes his foes with powerful combinations of special abilities, or something in between.
You can choose to play in different realms that each have their own landscape and their own set of creatures. The many superior items you will find can be exchanged between different characters, one of which will eventually become the first powerful enough to face the Chaos Overlord.
Prepare yourself for Battlepaths!
this is one of those nice little low-cost unexpected gems that you find once in a while in the vast sea of non AAA titles. This game offers cute cartoonish style graphics wrapped up in a simple, yet effective hack-and-slash format that will keep you involved until the very end. Unlike so many other games that seem to wear out their welcome a couple of hours in, this game finds a way of staying both interesting and more importantly fun all the way through. If you are looking for a nice, inexpensive game that will provide some hours of fun, then you should give this one a try.
A true challenge awaits the weary who dare to enter down the path of battles fighting different sets of monsters in different environments. Each new level and foe provides a new challenge to conquer. Complete quests and earn experience and gold to buy better gear in order to take on the boss. You tried one strategy and and didn't work, so you choose a different skill the next time to fit your needs. With a bit of skill and a little luck, this path will soon be feared by the foes whom cross your path. This is a solid game and worth adding to your vast library of games if you are someone who seeks a challenge. As the open grid turn-based game style awaits you, you'll find yourself trying to conquer the first level by failing over and over on the hardest difficulty until you learn the tricks for defeating each enemy type.
The game has you deciding on your stats and looting new equipment as you play but the combat options are few. The loot system is one of the better elements but combat eventually becomes very boring and there is nothing to invest you in the world or story. Graphics and sound are nothing that is going to hold you attention. A passable budget title, if you have to buy something you can definitely do worse, but there are much better options available that aren't priced that much higher when found on sale such as Dungeons of Dredmore, Torchlight, Crypt of the Necro Dancer, etc.
It's a decent budget title. There's some creativity to the characters and world design, but it's mechanically a standard rogue-like. It looks nice, and plays well enough, but there's nothing really notable to it minus the setup and design, which while enjoyable, are just the outer layer of the experience. Otherwise, it's rather standard and doesn't bring much new to the table. That being said, for the price, it's a worthwhile purchase.
I did not expect much from this game, like many of the people reviewing it before me, I saw the graphics I thought it wouldn't amount to much. I bought the game in a bundle, and it wasn't even in my sights when I got it, I simply started running the game to get the steam cards. I was quite pleased to find out that it was actually a very good game when I played it, It's sufficiently challenging for people to actually die once in a while, the humour and the references to other games are entertaining. The Achievements are fun to go after, and not exceedingly frustrating. I do feel like the game's sound track is somewhat unoriginal, but I suppose that could be part of the humour. And despite what the screenshots for the game look like, once I played the game, I realized that the engine fits it perfectly, despite some clunkiness here and there (e.g. being blocked by a weed when you want to walk somewhere), over all I love the game, and I feel good about the purchase.
