DarkEnd reviews and comments

German first, english below. Great RPG Maker Game that may not be worth £13 but a 50% Discount in the Sale should make you strike already. Hand-drawn Graphics, Character Selection, some special Scripts make the Game really entertaining and provide variety against the whole Standard RPG's. The Story is good in itself from the Approach, but unfortunately nothing is really done. Not as good as the Games that used to be free on the Net (when it was still about the Game itself, not about the Money), but of the clearly available on Steam in the upper Class. English Simple and good RPG Maker Game. The Price is a bit too high, but in a sale with a 50 percent discount you should give it a try. Handdrawn Graphics, Choose your Character and some special scripts are included. Way more different then the most RPG Maker RPGs these days. Good ideas are hide in the story but not all are well used ... DarkEnd is not that good like rpgs from the old maker scene, where games were for free and everyone will a good story and not much money, but paid from the games on steam, its one of the best.

After the first Round in the Dungeon, I almost wanted to give up. The Reason for this was the scarcely available or affordable Means to cure the permanent Poisoning. This is unfortunately one of the not a few Flaws of this Game. OK, the Trader leads after getting some Levels items that stop the Poisoning. Unfortunately, this occupies one of the few Equipment Slots. Well, what else is there ... Random Level, at least such a Kind of Random Level. The Dungeon is divided into different Themes. In these, however, the Random Levels hardly differ. Honestly it usually just looks ugly, The Opponents are either 08/15 Standard goods or so from Level 5 you get to See some that kill the Character with one Stroke ... Even you need 2 Rounds to do it ... So only if there is a Free Round is possible. All Enemies are visible and you can run away from them. To be able to leave one Level, you have to find the Teleporter to the next and a Key. These are contained either in Boxes or as a Loott of Monsters. All Pair of Levels there is a Bossfight to get on in the Main Quest. There is also a Portal to get back to the City. Only there you can save, shop and above all visit the Skill area in order to unlock new Skills with points received by Level ascent. There are also some of the side quest givers. Ah, let's still talk about the Quests. They are found X-Items in The range Y or find Clue in the Range Y. The Items are usually intended as Ingredients for Blacksmids, but he then sells better Weapons. The other Queste ... oh, that's where the random levels come in. It may well be that you have to play through an Area dozens of times so that it finally finds the right Level. Initially there is a Fairy in the Dungeon as a Questess ... I probably had to play this Area 2 Dozen Times until finally ds level with the Fairy resurfaced. And oh Man did I say how ugly they are? You Can only repeat. Well, can I recommend this Game now? I Got for a few Pennies in the Bundle ... But for the Price charged here, I would NEVER buy it. There are better Free RPG Maker Games,
