Contains content that may not be suitable for persons under age 10. If this were a movie, it would probably be between G and PG.

A very simple game that's really just an excuse to play around with variables and stuff. You play as a generic RPG hero trying to defeat the Behemoth.

Player Comments

Well, this was certainly more game than story by a rather large margin to say the least. There's really not much to say here, but I feel that the scripting is done rather well, making for an interesting battle simulation.

Since there isn't much in terms of story, would it be more fair for me to go about this comment in a more game-orientated manner? Because I think I'll do just that.

Difficulty wise, this really wasn't that challenging. I know this game is supposed to be rather simple and bare bones (as stated in the description) but I feel that maybe another harder enemy could have been added for players that finished the first battle. It's obvious that the creator of this game know his way around well enough in using scripting and variables to craft a decent battle. I found myself simply pressing one action repeatedly when my character was out of mana, and doing just that with the occasional different action was enough for me to topple the behemoth with much energy to spare.

Options, I feel that having more options in terms of attack would have made things more enjoyable. There seems to be a definite room for depth in selection here to make for a more dramatic battle, and I'm not saying by any means that this game required something like ten or twenty actions. I feel that even just five would have been enough to make this plenty of more fun.

I must say that despite its lack of depth, the fact that there's at least different classes to choose from was something that I found to be a welcome addition. And despite the repetition, this is something that shows that CYS games can be remarkable behold when the right variables and the like are put into place correctly.

I feel there's missed potential, but for a simple game and test of variables, this is okay.

This is a decent battle simulator with some nice, cheeky writing. Definitely way too shallow to be of any real fun but nonetheless, it's not a poor effort.

Limited options, couldn't determine that the variable system was more complex than taking off a certain amount for each spell every time. Still, calculated overdrive. Liked the beast pic. Overall had fun, liked the writing. Phoenix link didn't reset game at end.

Well, some of the items sadly dont register (i was a thief and just stole stuff til i died). Strategy was to steal as much stuff until im down by 50 points then use a potion i stole. sometimes, the items dont show up so i ended up stealing 4 pots but only had 1 in my inv :/

Meh. It was kinda boring, but still. Would rather play this than do homework.

When fighting as the wizard, using thunder is ironically the most POWERFUL attack you can do!

This is because thunder still deals like 30 damage, AND the behemoth doesn't get to counter! Thus I just cast Thunder 7 times, used the ether, and then cast thunder a few more times, and bam! down goes the behemoth.

In fact this was the only way I could beat him as the wizard!

Also, you can't really win as the thief unless you cheat, to always get your steal. Also, there is no point for the thief to scan more than once.

I think this could be an EXCELLENT game if you threw in some more monsters, and added a plot.
