Hello player. You stopped by the choice of this game, but you're not sure? Take her boldly, this game forced me to meager a male tear at the end, I think it will not leave anyone indifferent, passed it on the legendary difficulty, it is still fun: got a real shuttle, the co-Partians are balanced, thinking on the move forward, Sometimes there are moments when it becomes easy, but exactly until the moment you step over the next part of the archipelago. So to the pluses: 1) The plot to go into the details will not need to read yourself, to be interesting 2) search for secrets-secret rooms is our all =) 3) game mechanics-Difficult to extract Shmot, Kraft potions, use of accessories in various situations 4) Card-I had a metal card Jarrada which costs at times more than the game bought on sale =) So to Cons: 1) For Someone it may be minus, but not for me-it's a game RPG Maker and this is all said 2) This is mainly linearity, but here our Actions are justified by the characters, so that the plus/minus. 3) You Need an average level of Inglesa, without it I'm afraid to take it is not. Ps: The Game is very well done, well balanced, a great story, places a great sound track, I would certainly like to be able to explore the world a little more, but also so in principle excellent. Take it unequivocally, if not frightening RPG Maker and speak English on the average level.

It's a RPG maker role-playing game, but it's designed to cover the JRPG formula in a very different way... a way that looks at the world from the eyes of a common man who seeks revenge. Players will take on the role of a common farmer called Jerrat who seeks revenge after his wife and son are brutally murdered. The adventure sees Jerrat accompanied by other warriors and adventurers along the way, attempting revenge while playing a much more complicated conspiracy that will affect the destiny of the nation. Jerrat must also fight against his own demons, in the hope of not letting himself be consumed by the hatred that led him to his quest and maintain the fundamental principles that led to his wife to the lover of him from the beginning. The tale of a common man is a 16-bit inspired puzzle game with a shot, seven characters that can join the party, five active characters during the fight, 30 secret rooms and 30 hours of play "I liked the graphics of the game. Of course, it's not the most remarkable, but everything looks neat and appealing. All backgrounds and characters are drawn with love. "The fights here are the same as in any JRPG. Their complexity depends on the level of difficulty you choose at the beginning of the game. "It's a RPG-maker game, so if it bothers you, it may not be your cup of tea. If however, you like to play a difficult game both funny and clever, then you will enjoy it. I did. The playing time was about 10 to 12 hours. Not bad for an inexpensive game! "...
