AVEYOND [2 HOUR TRIAL] (full version is $20)

Probably the most popular game from the RPG Maker XP engine is Aveyond. It is everywhere, because it is pawned off as a legitimate RPG. Which it is a legitimate RPG when you take into account that the game is 50 hours long with 60 quests. I am not sure what counts as a quest but in my 2 hours of playing it I have encountered maybe 2 of the quests.

With the trial it only allows for 2 hours of gameplay. This means 2 hours of the entire game's existance. You cannot start a new game and go for two hours. If you get an hour into the game and start over, that means you only have an hour left to play! If you are not willing to drop $20 on a game you may want to avoid it, just because you will get addicted.

The game is legitimately fun and very digestable. The game gives you a story and a series of events to complete, but it still gives you the freedom to roam, explore, kill enemies and treasure hunt.

The battles do have something to be desired though. While there is a side battle system like in RPG Maker 2K3. The battle characters are very unimpressive being that they are the exact same chips as in the overhead map that you roam around with. You will also spend the first few legs of your journey running from monsters in the overhead map, because you WILL be killed by them. There is no escape feature and your one character is defenseless against a nest of spiders. There also needs to be diversity to the enemies, because in 2 hours of gameplay I only encountered 3 types of enemies, spiders, chickens, and serpants. There were 4 if you include a teacher that gives you your battle trials to become a sword singer.

The game is very long and drawn out, which allows for 50 hours of gameplay I suppose. There is a main story that brews throughout the game unknown to its main character Rhen as she trains herself as a sword singer. There are multiple plot twists and turns. Some of them are in there for the sake of a plot turn.

There are major use of scripts, but it seems to be a little too much where in my 2 hours of playing I never reached any points where I gained party members. The game also boasts about how you can marry characters. I never reached that point either.

There are new graphics and most of the game has new graphics, but they seem dull and dirty. Some I think are really good 8 bit graphics taken from NES games. It seems more like you are playing a RPG 2K3 game, which not that its bad, but the game is still a RPG XP game.

The mapping is excellent, beautiful and detailed. The towns can be large, but they are broken down into sectors like a few shops clumped in one area, with two exits each leading to a different sector with different houses.

By the end of my 2 hour trial I did feel like I had played something new and different from the graphics, the story and the plot that twists and turns. There is good character development, maybe because there is only one playable character so far, with a major villain and his sun priest.

In Fun:
4 stars

In Challenge:
4 stars

Mapping:
4 stars

New Graphics:
3 stars (not the prettiest graphics)

Overall:
4 stars (out of 5)

Worth a download at 22 MB
MAYBE Worth the price of the full version at $20

I still regret spending those 20 bucks. THe story was creative, yet horribly cliched.

I am always warry of indie made quest games that you pay for after those first 2 hours the game could be 48 more hours of unplayable nonsense.

Nope. I was able to shrink it down to 52MB. Also there will be a dial-up download available in 11 parts ~4.8MB. Except you mean Aveyond and not CP...
