Great RPG by the minds behind The Last Story (Mistwalker/AQ)
15 May 2012
Summary: AWAY: Shuffle Dungeon is similar to Zelda, because you have an overworld to explore and then dungeons where the combat and such takes place. However, there's a slight twist in this game, because the core mechanic has you shuffling the dungeons around between the DS's top and bottom screens. While it may seem like a gimmick, it all works wonderfully and adds a little more depth to the experience.
Summary: I bought this game because it was pretty cheap and got pretty good reviews. I'm really glad I didn't shell out much cash for this one. The graphics are "ho hum", you get a pretty good idea from the picture on the box. The character's interactions with their environment is extremely limited. For example, in any Zelda game you can break open pots, cut the grass, or open drawers, etc. to find rupees. There is no such thing in this game.
Summary: The game is very fun in the begining, the storyline gets more and more interesting as the game progresses. However the dungeons are all the same, it is just the same dungeons over and over again, with different monsters, and a little bit different things that need to be done to progress. All in all i did enjoy playing it, but after 18 hours of gameplay it is still going on, dungeon after dungeon.
Summary: I can't believe a game of this quality is going for the price it's set at and every time I look it's cheaper and cheaper. Cut to the chase: if you have a DS, buy this. The gameplay is phenomenal, the writing is a scream. Refer to the other excellently written review for details but there is simply no excuse for a game this great to be ignored.
Summary: I'm really surprised that no one has written a raving review for this game, considering how great it is, but I'm glad that I can be the first. This game ROCKS THE CASBAH! I've been looking for a good game to play for a while, and till the next Professor Layton comes out or till someone *cough* gets their act together and put out a new Legend of Zelda for the DS, I bought "Away.
Summary: Frantic action puzzle RPG, with a surprisingly engaging story. Mostly a combination of monster-bashing and switch-pushing, with various side quests and some blob-farming thrown in - the blobs help you through the dungeons, and I got very attatched to mine! I found that it got really hard towards the end, but the story kept me pushing through. Certainly worth a blast at under a tenner.
