From the makers of the world renowned “Wizardry Empire” titles, Starfish SD brings you the latest entry in their popular series of dungeon crawlers. Elminage Gothic, previously only available in Japanese on PlayStation® Portable, now comes to PC offering a classic old school dungeon crawling experience with a dark, gothic twist!
In ancient times, the Great and Dark Gods clashed in a ferocious war over Man's control of the world, bringing despair and ruin to the lives of all humans.
As the conflict raged, the Great Gods sought to vanquish the power of the Dark Gods through the faith of humans. In return for their faith, the Gods promised humans a world of peace and prosperity and thereby a contract between humans and the Great Gods was formed.
By the contract, the Dark Gods could not interfere with the world of humans and were forever sealed inside their world of darkness. The people worshiped the Great Gods in thanks for their prosperity, and the world entered an era of peace.
The humans grew complacent and allowed their faith to fade.
Now, in the far-off realm of Ishmag, King Jardin ushers in an age of peace. Unknown to him, the dark powers have already begun reaching out in secret, planting the seeds to bring about the revival of the Dark Gods into the hearts of men. Foul and hideous creatures are emerging from the deep, treacherous caves of Tsun-Kurn and rumours of a rising evil are creeping across the peaceful lands.
It is up to you to arm yourself and descend into the depths of Tsun-Kurn in an attempt to put an end to the ever growing darkness and save your kingdom.

Elminage Gothic reviews and comments

Have returned the Game despite it only costing £2.99in on the Sale. Unfortunately, no Purchase recommendation due to too many Flaws in game Design. Role-playing Technology is very much oriented towards Wizardry 7. Here is a small List of the Defects found:-a fresh lvl1 party has NO chance in the 1st Dungeon. Even the Uralt hardcore games (yes Wiz7, I'm looking at you) have mastered this better-purchased Cards from the Dungeons can obviously only be viewed 1x per dungeon visit. At least I could only look at the (in-shop available) card once-a little Comfort should have been. I can only create my Weapons and equipment in the Shop (As far as I can tell) and examine mistaken Explanations in Character creation make it difficult to get the Original (Wizardry 7 also here), Might and Magic 10 or Starcrawler. Those are more Fun.

I find the Game far too difficult as a Beginner and even after 4 Hours I got zero fun For the Game. There Is a Lack of Earth nutrition and Clues everywhere. As a hard-hitting Fan, I would certainly know why certain Figure characteristics ensure that I can't use Weapons, but I can't use them, and some certainly like to have to look around the Internet like the Basics in order to do even the slightest. Chance to be given. Moments like a Npc tells a 30 Minute in the first Dungeon that he Annoys not having bought a Magic Card, which is probably a Facepalm for yourself and a Laugh For the Developers who are happy that you have only just got it That it was also not even known that you had to buy a Card first AND THIS FOR WORLD PRO BENUTUNG. For me it was a Mispurchase there as a New Entrant absolutely inaccessible, but for Fans of the Series it seems to offer a lot (I can recognize a High Complexity in Character Development and Tactics commendably, but it is too Hard for me to see there in the first place in order to Having Fun with it). Those who like turn-based RPGs should only buy them if they are aware of the "Hardcore" Addition.

Eliminage Gothic Is an old-school dungeon crawler, the gaaannnnz old School. Here, no one holds our Hand as we head into the Depths of the menacing dungeon of Tsun-Kurn. Forget magic Cards? No more Spells? Just a surviving Healer in the third Basement? Fate! Lack of Explanations in Character creation and incomprehensible Shortcuts in item Descriptions make it difficult to Get started as well as the complicated Menu guidance Of the Game. Here, the Origins of Elminage Gothic as a handheld game can be clearly seen. Graphically, the Port, which is first available in English two Years after the original Release, is unlikely To win Beauty Prizes. On the Contrary, the underground depths of the Kingdom of Ishmag are low-detail and ugly. The Drawings of Players and Opponents, in turn, serve their Purpose. The Outstanding Feature of the Title lies in the captivating Gameplay. If you take the Trouble and invest a few Lessons, get to know the Game step by Step, you can look forward to more than 80 Hours of addictive Playing Time at a Price of €9.99n.
