I’ve completely forgot to write about Dragon Quest VI when It’s came out. I’ve written about Dragon quest VIII  probably the best available dragon quest (and rpg in general) on tablet, we talked about Dragon quest I & II which are both great game and Dragon quest III is on the way (released in japan not elsewere)

The fourth installment of dragon quest, Dragon quest IV: Chapter of the chosen, is very different from other dragon quest in the way the story is structured. You play different chapter to learn about the story of each of your characters until chapter 5, which is basically 80% of the game, where (spoiler alert) you reunite with all of them. Another welcoming addition the introduction of the wagon. Everything else the game is pretty similar to the others except that you can’t change classes like in DQ III.

If you don’t want to be spoiled, go buy it and play it immediately on itune, Google play, Nintendo DS or on the old school nes. If you don’t mind move along.

The first chapter is the shortest Ragnar a fighter who need to investigate the missing children for the king and they go on to find the chosen one.
The second Chapter is about a rebel princess named Alena that want to prove her strength. The third chapter is with Tonerko, a merchant that wants to build is own shop. The fourth chapter is with two sisters, Meena and Maya, that seeking revenge for the death of their father. The final chapter (in the original game) is with the chosen hero who will travel the world to find the characters from the previous chapters and legendary gear to defeat the evil Psaro.

The recent remake of the game include a sixth chapter, where you discover more of the story of Psaro & Rose and who the bad guy really is. You can to be able to have Psaro join you to fight that new bad guy (I don’t want to spoil you to much). Note that Psaro is freakingly OP compare to the other characters, only the hero seems to be not so bad compare to him.

Note: since it’s an old school RPG, expect a lot of random encounter, if you’re playing a recent version they are tuned down a bit but still annoying.

The Cave of Atman

The Cave of Atman

The Cave of Atman is a puzzle with a RPG twist on it. Each class attack differently and they level up by killing the aura of the defeated enemies.

The game play is quite simple and the puzzle are really easy at the beginning, but it’s get harder has you progress. But fear not new class join your quest with new attack and range. Classes like the mage or archer can execute ranged attacks, while fighters are only able to strike at adversaries that are adjacent to them. Note that they all of them can only move and strike once per level. If you’ve made a mistake, you can click on the last action and it will reset it, in some case you need to use the retry button and reset the room for another try.

Hypnotic Owl’s The Wizard

In The Wizard, the player takes on the role of a wizard who is on a quest to retrieve his face from the thief that just stole it.  Unlike the The Cave of Atman the RPG element is more omnipresent. Fear not each level are carefully design to make you think and everything is turn base.

I’ve tried to get a theme, it about some heroes in medieval time or something…

Heroes of Sokoban

This one really caught my eyes, not because of the graphic because honestly they’re almost Atari like. But Heroes of Sokoban is a really interesting puzzle game. You control three thieves and each have theirs own unique skill, is strong has hell and can push stuff around. The other can only pull log and dragon, the last can teleport itself where there a obstacle (log, dragon, gobelin, etc)

Each make the puzzle different because you need to think differently depending on which thief you’re playing.

Kingdom

A Kingdom where troll face actually actack you

While the name is not really SEO friendly this game definitely deserve some love. I would define it has a side-scrolling strategy-defense game where you use your coin to build your defense, enlist peasants, give them weapons and tools.

Beware during the night, creep (who seem to be troll more than creep) will attack your peasants, destroy what you built and they will flee with your money. If they touch you, you lose your crown and the game…

I’ve noticed that the peasants are quite fearless, even sometime stupid, they face the army of troll without retreating even though there a barricade right behind them.
