This is a great little game to get into with your kids. It has some RPG elements but they're not too complicated. Powers are tied in which costume you wear and you need to collect materials to craft those costumes. This is a fantastic little gateway RPG to get casual people hooked onto the genre. Relatively easy and the atmosphere is light and amusing.
I must admit I am a sucker for Double Fine games, Costume Quest is another of the games made by this studio and I'm so glad that I tried it out. The game is rather easy but there is a great amount of charm in this title and I recommend giving this one a try. The only grudge I hold against is the way that some of the assets were recycled. Some of the music was copied from Psychonauts but when you forget about that it is a charming little gem.
Costume Quest will forever be in my top 10 game list! Remember when you were kids (or now while you're a kid) you play dress up and pretend you are what you're dressed as with all the traits? Love Halloween? This is the game that will indulge you that awesome feeling of playing dress up and trick-or-treating! You get adventure, awesome game play, funny story line where you can't hate the villains simply because they are as adorable as the main characters, cool puzzles, and cute art style. I also purchased the sequel and looking forward for more DoublePlay productions!
It's a relatively short RPG where you play as a young kid who goes trick or treat with your twin, who very soon gets abducted by candy eating monsters, on Halloween Night. Now you gotta fend off the monsters from your town in order to save your sibling! The battles are not your typical recipe though, instead it employs simple QTEs for both attacking and defending, which in my opinion makes the game even more kid friendly since practically any age can accomplish that, so if you got young kids this can definitely prove a great game for them. What you can do in battle depends on the costume you're using. You can dress any of your party members in any costume you have acquired, each with it's own strengths, weaknesses and ability. Want to have an astronaut, a giant robot and a ninja fighting? Great! Want to have a Unicorn, the Statue of Liberty and a serving of McFries fighting? Yes, that can happen. The game can get a bit repetitive but thanks to its length it doesn't really wear you out. All in all a very entertaining experience!
I started this game with some apprehension, as I am not really familiar with turn-based style RPGs and felt that it would put me off. As it is, my lack of experience with turn-based combat is probably what saved this game for me. Costume Quest is a delightful and funny game that, although easy for the most part, is still enjoyable. Gameplay consists of moving around one of 3 areas, collecting candy and collectable stickers through quests and platforming, and trick-or-treating, which results in candy or combat with candy-hoarding monsters. Combat is turn based and involves the characters transforming into their costumed identities, and is a very simple affair, consisting of 1 normal and 1 special move per costume, with battle stamps providing stats or additional moves. Those who are more into turn-based combat might find this game to be too easy and dull, so I would recommend this game to beginners in that genre. You might find yourself interested in a whole new world of turn-based games!
