Summary: Fortune Summoners: Secret of the Elemental Stone, a side-scrolling Action "Metroidvania" JRPG produced by Lizbox and localized by Carpe Fulgur can only really be described as 'bipolar.' It seems to swing from one end of things to the other, constantly displaying a stark contrast between it's cute, sugary writing and characters with its quirky, stylish, punishingly difficult combat.
Summary: If there's anything that needs to be said about this game, it's that it is incredibly difficult. The difficulty borders along that line of "Incredibly Satisfying" and "Pull your hair out from irritation". It takes a LOT of getting used to, but overall this game is charming, cute, and funny. The story isn't exactly mind blowing, but the like-able characters make it worth sitting down and listening to.
Summary: When I saw this game in the steam store, I first thought to myself, a bunch of little girls running around killing things? whaaa?...Then I decided to try it out since I do enjoy side scrolling beat 'em ups, and I was surprised to how much I enjoyed the combat as well as the cutesy dialog, This is an example of a person who plays games and knows what to add into games, game developers today I think goto school to learn how to make games and have not actually played a game...
Summary: This game is a solid plataformer with some RPG touches. The story is terrible and full of kawaii cliches, but the gameplay makes it worthy. The combat and magic system is complex, with lots of combos, the AI of the companions is good and the regular enemies do present a challenge. This is a hard game, even the normal enemies can, and will, kill you many times. So if you don´t stand repeating a couple of times a certain area don´t get near this game.
Summary: Fortune Summoners is a fun game that suffers from a few unfortunate flaws. It's a 2D action RPG although the RPG elements are pretty basic...you level up, gain stat boosts, can equip better items as time goes on, etc. The game's story isn't bad but not particularly interesting. This isn't a game you'd play for the story but rather the fun but difficult combat.
Summary: This Game is pretty cool! I am not actually into role playing and/ or side scroller, but the cuteness in sounds ,graphics, text and a nice story got me! I can not understand why the rating is so mediocre and how someone could rate this below 70. It´s a fun game! Wouldn´t pay more than 15 euros for it, but on steam sale, it´s must have! I rate this with an 8!
Summary: Very good JRPG sidescroller. It has a very classic feel to it, but the art design and sound are by no means dated. This game is hard and even brutal at times though it stays fair. The combat/controls are very responsive and I would very much compare it with the way one controls a character in Street Fighter when in fighting, this also means you can not charge at mobs and expect to beat them as they all need to be defeated in a certain way and require skill.
Summary: The gameplay is fun and the combat system is far better than expected, it is both fun while there is plenty of moves you can do. Only thing could be that the companion AI is a bit too good, especially if you let it play as the main character and see her wreck up some combos while dodging pretty much everything. The story in the game isn't exactly a masterpiece, but it isn't exactly bad either.
Summary: A little gem, that will go unnoticed by most people. But I have to say that this 2d game was so much better and so much more entertaining than 99% of the games that we get these days. It took me 40 in-game hours to complete it and it was worth it. I had a feeling that I just finished reading an amazing book. If you are into jrpgs, warm and colorful stories, give this gem a try and I bet you won't regret it.
Summary: At first glance, one could very easily fool ones self into believing this is an offline Maple Story. They would be VERY mistaken. The combat system the developers have chosen to implement was extraordinarily complex and rewarding, plus the amount of content crammed into this game was pretty insane as well. It is a 2D platformer / RPG with cheesy anime dialogue, and pretty 1 Dimensional characters, but it does its job....
