Saturday Morning RPG is an episodic JRPG set in world heavily inspired by 1980s Saturday morning cartoons and pop culture. Players take the role of Martin "Marty" Michael Hall, an average high-school student who has just been granted an incredible power - a power that ultimately leads him to attract the ire of the world's most notorious villain, Commander Hood! Saturday Morning RPG features a full soundtrack by legendary composer Vince DiCola (Transformers: The Animated Movie, Rocky IV) and his composing partner, Kenny Meriedeth (contributor for DuckTales, Power Rangers, X-Men, and others).TECH SPECS:
  • Episodic Gameplay: The story and gameplay of Saturday Morning RPG takes place across several episodes, each of which tells a complete self-contained story. Players can play any episode in any order, at any time! All of your stats and items carry between episodes. It’s a unique spin on the tried and true New Game Plus mode. On top of that, small decisions made in some episodes will carry forth into others – adding a layer of replay to each episode. Five episodes are included!

  • Active Turn-Based Combat: Saturday Morning RPG draws quite a bit of inspiration from games like Nintendo’s Paper Mario series. Battles in the game are turn-based, but the player is always participating by actively defending against attacks and completing reflex tests to power up their own assaults.

  • Defeat Enemies With Regular Stuff: Marty fights all his battles in the game by channeling magic through everyday objects. Use a pack of striped gum to summon rainbow zebras that trample your foes – or call upon a transforming action figure to morph you into a semi-truck!

  • Nostalgia Fueled Everything: Everything in Saturday Morning RPG centers on nostalgia. Marty receives his magical abilities thanks to a certain kind of garish plastic notebook, he can equip scratch ‘n sniff stickers to get statistical boosts, and he’ll traverse worlds inspired by the entire gamut of Saturday morning cartoons.

  • Endless Battle Mode: Take on wave after wave of enemies in an endless survival mode where resource management becomes everything!

  • Optional Arena Battles: Take on powerful enemies in optional arena battles. Two fights are currently included, with more coming as free updates.

  • Controller Support: Full support for game controllers.

  • Steam Achievements and Trading Cards: Earn over 70 achievements and collect 8 trading cards.

Saturday Morning RPG reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from French
The combat system is pleasing, but it gets quickly repetitive. However the animations are absolutely great, and totally fit the geeky atmosphere of the game. I did not like the humor of the game, but I am not fully fluent in English. It is very parodic, filled with cliché and references to pop-culture. Not my jam, but still a nice game.

Usable RPG game, quite well sent to the American animated series of the 80s, with a good game design, decent gameplay, excellent soundtrack and stylized graphics and drawing. I am also Glad that there is a replay, which is usually not found even in many high-budget RPG. It May be a bit upsetting that the episodes in the game are passing quite quickly, and the extra sound effects of the game would not interfere, but otherwise, I am glad that I played in the Saturday Morning RPG.

Well, what to say after the first episode. He was short, and as the training approached perfectly. For learning a great choice of opportunities and stems. The Game is primarily played by nostalgia, not all people of the second half of the 90s seems to me to be close to the fog of humor) And The Oldschool will remember a lot (in the first episode of Floppy, Transformers, a couple of cartoons already forgotten, etc.)). Humor is more than adequate, I hope I will not see the Sorrnogo. Although in 80 such rubbish almost did not. Music, the best music was of course in the promo video, but the game on the level) Grabon, all released sad at the sight of it. And seriously, after Tetris and electronics scare nothing can already) Characters look cool, tricks look cool, bonuses are drawn cool, what else to demand. Threat. I Want to hope that the other episodes will be long, strong) And The game is great, I would buy if a friend did not change to the Tresea. Worth its full price.

Unfortunately not a good Game even if the Saturday Morning theme has been well implemented in itself and the Game is sure to trigger a certain Sense of not-almness in many a Gamer. Accordingly, the Story is very trashy and certainly one of the "big" Plus points of the Game. On the other Hand, I can do little to gain the ugly graphics, grad outside of the Fights simply an ugly 2D/3D Mixture. The Turn-based Fights themselves I also found quite desolate. At First I found the somewhat unusual Approach of this interesting but it becomes clear quite quickly that these are quite simple. In addition, I find the System to intensify the Attacks (which is essential) superfluous, in my Opinion that only prolongs the Struggles. In Addition, there are strong Attacks that simplify too much and then again useless Attacks that are rarely worth carrying out. A Game with good And bad Facets, in my Eyes referred the negative. When the Game is in Sale, however, big Fans of Saturday Morning Cartoons can take a quiet look at it.
