Monsters, weapons, potions, spells, quests, pets, bosses, a giant castle... and a funny story! Unepic is a combination of platforming and role playing games. There are many hilarious references throughout the game. The game takes place in Harnakon, a huge medieval castle. It is set in the hardcore NES Style, yet refined with the latest features. This makes Unepic a very unique game. Daniel, the hero, is a normal guy from recent times: a great videogame player, big sci-fi movie fan, novice player of role playing games, pot-head and overall, horny due to a mysterious lack of success with girls. During a D&D session he is teleported to a fantasy castle where his modern way of thinking will go against monsters and other characters from there.
the developer are arrogant (when i mention that i use trainer to avoid grinding, and he insulted me for using a trainer for an rpg game, and accuse me of trying to cheat my way into the hall of fame, while i don't care about hall of fame in an RPG game), and the game got too much grinding.
and what's the point of having a hall of fame in a rpg game ?
rpg is not about having the highest point.
and i'm not gonna waste my time playing games, just to grind the levels, too much grinding = boring.
and i almost forgot, this game requires activation, and that itself kill the reason it is on desura.
and this game also needs you to register your copy, and requires internet connection for the so called hall of fame.
you need to understand "hall of fame is not for rpg game, but its for competitive genre, example : FPS, Racing, and so on".
if you like grinding, please help yourself to this game.
my time is precious for me to waste on grinding some level.
and i got this game from a bundle, it just happens to be there, so lucky me, i don't waste too much money on buying this game.
This is a really good action-platformer game full of excitement and humor that unfortunately suffers from a few setbacks that keep it from being great.
1-It is NOT drm free. One has to wonder, what with the limited audience of this game, why is there a need for drm? Granted, it has about the most unobtrusive drm scheme available, but even small drm is still drm. And I'm against drm. -1.
2-It doesn't have any screen resolution options and is stuck at a 4:3 aspect ratio. If this game was made in 1998 I could understand. But for a game made within the last few years to be stuck at a 4:3 ratio is laughable. I can't believe that the developer even has a 4:3 monitor. Do they even still make them? -1.
3-This is obviously a game made to be played at a desk with your face about a foot away from your (4:3 aspect ratio) screen. Everything is so small on screen that playing in your living room on your 42" lcd while relaxing on the couch is next to impossible. Unless you want to push your couch across the room and right up next to the tv. That, combined with the lack of controller support (I recomend you buy xpadder) shows a game design that is geared to a very limited audience. And that's a shame because I believe that this game, given a few changes, would appeal to a great many gamers. -1.
7/10 is still a good score and I'm sure that I'll enjoy the game and all of its humor all the way through to the end, but not without being inconvenienced. And that inconvenience is the difference between a good game and a great one.
Yes I did rate it 10/10.
Because good metroidvania are rare nowadays.
Because it's very nicely done. It's smooth, the controls are sharp and respond very well. The torches give a particular atmosphere.
Because of its humour and the reactions of your hero to given situations, including of course your companion and the spirits.
Because I started playing it, and when I looked back at the time, several hours had passed, it was high time I'd go to bed, but I seriously wanted more.
Seriously, I have nothing bad to say about this game. Actually, here's one : "I want more !"
