For those who like good RPGs a clear Recommendation! :) Even if I've never been a Fan of NES graphics myself (SNES all the way ♥), it works here and makes Sense! As well as the entire, clever Story full of Twists and Soul! Fascinating how many Emotions are generated here with the Means given. CONTRA:-Towards the End the fights become a bit monotonous ...-Some Areas are very empty ...-I didn't get an Archievement since I ran right,,, #salty-"Pokémon" Allusion to obviously ^^ ' PRO:-... The fights are always tactical, fun and never a "push Through"-... All Areas have their own Charm and Variety to offer-... For that I was interested in the Archievements:P-Well written + Good Director-No Cliché and a lot to Think about:) I hope there are many more such Pearls coming from the Maker (have already bought, installed and look forward to Experiencing:D) Try them out, if you like the Kind of RPGs! :) #LOVEDIT

8-Bit Adventures would do damn well in an NES game collection! 8-Bit Adventures surprised me in a really positive way! The Plot succeeds in telling the Feat both an exciting Adventure and in spying On nostalgic Allusions without letting it push plump to the Fore. The Game itself offers rock solid Genre food With a well-integrated Scissors, Stone, paper game element as well as contemporary comfort and successful difficulty balance. Furthermore, the Title succeeds really well in reviving the audiovisual Feeling of an old NES JRPG. But Unfortunately 8-Bit Adventures is not perfect. The retro graphics should have seemed a bit more homogeneous and some unnecessary Comfort flaws such as Restricting It to four Storage Spaces are simply annoying. In addition, the Fun for rounded up 10 Euros should have been kept a little longer than the 10-11 Hours that Steam indicates as my Playing Time. Nevertheless, 8-Bit Adventures Remastered Edition is easily one of the best RPG maker games currently available on Steam. Pro and Cons: Pro:-clever Story that skillfully plays with nostalgic Elements but never lets them push into the Foreground-superb Soundtrack-self-created Graphics, so no maker esets and sprites-cute Scissors, stone, paper game element Within the Battles-usual uncomplicated Control with controller support-very well balanced Difficulty-high Game Comfort despite retro faiirs (hardly Grinding, you can save anywhere, ...) Neutral: Apart from the clever Plot and the color system within the Fights, the Game basically offers nothing really Creative or New contra:-The completely useless "accessory" equipment slot should have been removed-the Spritegraphics in the 8- Bit style doesn't always seem fully homogeneous to each other-Price-playing distance ratio is a little shaky (€10 for about 10 Hours of Play)-no racing function or no dash button-offers only four Saveslots The full Review: http://www.gamecontrast.de/8-bit-adventures-the-forgotten-journey-remastered-edition-review/-53443
