Demi-god Holy Avatar and his Guild of Maidens are taking a trip to his recently bought holiday island “Holy Island“. Here he can finally relax after countless battles, but this doesn't suit him at all, for he constantly thirsts for new adventures. After a rather rushed arrival on the beach the group make a gruesome discovery: numerous dead maidens, horribly mutilated, are scattered all over the path to the inside of the island. The Guild of Maidens is afraid that something horrible happened in the maidens’ camp on the island. Holy Avatar – secretly happy as an adventure lies ahead – is going to explore with a part of his group what exactly happened. Not knowing what kind of scale this disaster has already taken and what hazards are waiting for him and his companions inside the dense woods and caves…

This spin off was fun, but only if you really liked Holy Avatar in the first two games. He's still a player who constantly hits on the girls and is a bit sexist, but remains likable. The game is very short. Whereas the first 2 games took more than a dozen hours each to complete 100%, I was done with this one in 5 hours with 100% of the achievements. It's definitely an inferior game to the first two in every way, but the battle system remains excellent and the dialog is still funny at times. The environments weren't anywhere near as varied in this game, nor were there as many types of enemies to kill. What's here is fun, but it felt more like a cash in than anything else. I would rather have had a Grotesque 3 than this spin off.
Holy Avatar plays like a silly strategy RPG game that focuses more so on making you laugh rather than being serious about its RPG elements. Basically, you?re on a quest to destroy zombies on a holiday island. The premise itself is silly already! The gameplay is very simple and linear, something many RPG fans like myself dislike. Thankfully, there are some side quests to divert your time from the main quest. The battle system is hardly deep and simple. Overall, I found that this rpg was not fun at all for a rpg fan like myself.
