  • Summary: A very mediocre game especially compared to its peers. Graphics are poor, artworks laughably bad, gameplay is run-of-the-mill with very little innovation. 6/10 is for the retro style feel.

  • Summary: Really short and full of random RPG jokes, cliches, and game design choices. There's about 5 hours of gameplay here and the ending is an abrupt CONGRATS YOU SAVED THE WORLD PLAY AGAIN ON A HIGHER DIFFICULTY OR TRY TIME ATTACK. Sadly not much replay value and it feels like an actual numbered game, as if it's in the middle of a series or part of some "episodic" DLC series. I guess that was intended but it's still frustrating. I'd be more upset if the game wasn't so cheap.

  • Summary: I've read some of the reviews. Yes - this is a Classic RPG. It is humorous, funny, original in some respects, yet certain design choices deter me from diving into this game with my head. Example: i hated early Final Fantasies. Why? Because i could put a book (or any other paper weight) on the SPACE key and let the game finish itself.

  • Summary: Very old school rpg that I liked until I lost about an hour of progress because I died and didn't bother to save. Hate losing progression and have not lost that much time in a game since my gamecube/ps2 days.

  • Summary: I was hoping that this would play similar to the early Ultima games. While the looks are there, the gameplay isn't. There's not a whole lot of depth. It does have some positives like game controller support and a very simplified user interface. Also the combat is nicely done. But if you are expecting an adventure along the lines of Ultima III, you won't find it here.

  • Summary: This game is terrible. It is supposed to be a throwback to the old days and then it takes 2 hours to finish. I don't remember finishing a RPG on my superNES in 2 hours, ever. It used to be more like 20 minimum. Throw in terrible graphics and conventional gameplay, and you have one of the most overrated indie RPG of all. At least Cthulhu had some redeeming qualities but this one is just terrible.

  • Summary: A guy walks into a shop: "Hello, I'd like to buy a steaming pile of manure". Shopkeeper: "Ah, I have just the thing", quickly serving up a double pack of Breath of Death and Cthulhu Saves the World, "That's 89 pence please!" This game is just so bad, where do I begin? Well, I want my 89 pence back! I should have bought that hot chocolate instead...

  • Summary: Breath of Death VII: The Beginning was the first Zeboyd game (Robert Boyd) that simply blew me away. A loving and dastardly humorous homage to early 8-Bit RPGs, it's certainly clever, but it's also a finely tuned role-playing game that's worth far more than the asking price. Cthulhu Saves the World is equally worthy, but don't overlook this true classic.

  • Summary: It is very easy to summarize what this game is all about. Homage to the SNES era of RPG'S. Breath of Death VII is simply a homage to the classics. It's very witty and very well written parody that at times left me laughing out loud. The combat is familiar yet just different enough to keep things fresh. Leveling up is fast and easy, and your skills can be picked through a simple branching mechanic.

  • Summary: A retro game that does exactly what it set out on doing; mimicing a retro 90's RPG game. Right down to the absurdly high difficulty, slow manapoint regeneration and lack of a proper map. If you thoroughly enjoy 90's RPGs such as Breath of Fire and Lufia and still long for the days games were poorly designed, then this is for you. The story couldn't grip me as I found it hard to symphatize with an undead mute.
