This game is just awesome! :) It's like mix of of 2D RPG, metrodvania, fighting game and bullet hell with crafting and kinda "monster hunter" elements. I really like the art, it looks original and really fits to postapocalyptic world setting. It feels a little bit like Odins Sphere but with different setting and not so deep RPG elements. Combat - well crafted. You can use double (even triple later) jumps, boosts and air boosts (kind of fast dashes, you can even improve it's distance or add homing through point investment). You can use swords, guns, broadswords (2h great swords combined with gun), shurikens (great fast and deadly weps), crossbows, combinations of 1-h sword and gun or dual swords. Also you are not limited to 1 weapon set, later in the game, you'll get skill which allows you to manage 2 different and switch them even in missions (combat). Skills - you can manage 5 different skill sets, each with maximum of 200 points invested. You can improve your attacks, learn new abilities such as sword shield, homing boost, max air jump increase, you can raise your imunity to several efects such as burn, paralyze, freeze etc. up to 100%, increase your HP and stats and so on. Craft - craft is really good, sometimes you need to grind to get rare materials, but it's not that bad since combat is really enjoyable. You can craft and upgrade weapons, armor, accessories and costumes (avatar armor and head gear with no stats / effect). Once you beat the game main missions and final boss, you can start with "endless" mission where you can gain some special materials and boost your weapons even more with extra stats. Story - story is good - i mean like background story for this kind of game. Nothing epic with movies and tons of cutscenes, story of Earth's Dawn is about few pictures displayed and narrated simply by text and Japanese voice actors (very good imo). Music - i really like it, great tracks Overall: original action mix with really good combat system and great and original art. Gem! :)
It's hard not to see the resemblance between the EARTH'S DAWN and the Vanillaware creations and this is a great think to be honest. I really love that kind of art style and presentation. Even though there are many similarities there are some unique elements, unlike the games from mention above developer this game is set in a post-apocalyptic world invaded by robotic aliens. I must say I love it, it's an excellent game with a whole lot of research and crafting between brawling. Worth checking out.
If you ever heard of games like Muramasa: Demon's Blade, Dragon's Crown or Odin's Sphere, you will know what to expect from this game, because it is heavily inspired by those developers and there are no doubts about it. Graphics are nearly identical, feels hand drawn and it looks gorgeous, soundtrack is pretty solid and it was great choice leaving original Japanese voices and giving this game subtitles. Gameplay is fine and identical to games mentioned, but since it has more science fiction to it than mentioned developers, it is slightly different. You actually must have a right mindset for this game, because games in this genre can get little repetitive after a awhile. Overall, this game is really solid, and for this price it is better than it really has the right to be. Recommended, especially when it's on sale.
EARTH'S DAWN is a 2D sidescrolling action game with an appearance that makes it look somewhat like a Vanillaware (Odin Sphere, Dragons Crown, Muramasa) title, but with a more sci-fi feel and of lower quality. The characters, enemies, and many of the animations are of good quality but the environments and backgrounds are dull and repetitive and the animation when you fire your gun is very poor, with your character just waving his arm up and down and like he is firing a slow shooting weapon when you can actually fire quite quickly. There aren't that many different areas in the game but the game uses a mission select style that will have you frequently returning to the same areas making the often repetitive nature of a game like this worse now that you aren't even seeing new environments. Sound effects are typically good though the frequent grunts of your character can get annoying and while music can be absent or good depending on where you are it can become difficult to hear with the sounds of combat. The game has a lot of voice acting that is all in Japanese with English subtitles and they seem to do a good job. The game has many different skills from different areas that you can learn and that you can link to other skills as you improve your character, you also can make use of a crafting and improvement system for upgrading your gear.
