A very nice game by uchuu on October 29, 2012
Brain Lord is a good choice to go if you want to try out a somewhat different action RPG. (no big spoilers)
The fighting system is interesting and IŽd say new for its time. Your character moves and attacks similar to Zeldas Link, but you can make him actually jump. Also there is a big variaty of interesting weapons / magic to use and your hero can collect little fairies that help him in battle. All this makes the game into a great experience.
The graphics are nice to look at, the world and characters/objects are well and interesting drawn out, not perfect but very good in my opinion. The overall feeling that the game has, fits the story nicely.
The music adds a fresh feeling to the general refreshing atmosphere and is really nice to listen to.
Now to the gameplay: It reminds me of Zelda a bit. You have to solve puzzles, defeat enemies and bosses. The puzzles can be really mindboggling as far as I can remember and fun to do. The bosses are extremely hard to beat, but with time one gets the hang out of it and it gets easier to beat them.
The only two things that made me not give this game a 10 out of 10 is: The graphics can lag sometimes heavily, but in the end of this review I give you a hint how to reduce this lag (will contain spoiler, read it if you are a bit into the game and have lag issues already). Also I being a gamer who takes his time while playing games to embrace the world/atmosphere of it found it to be short and this is a pity. It seemed to me as if the makers didnŽt have enough time to complete this game. That also would explain the error with the lag. Nonetheless an exelent game!
If you are searching a game that takes brains and skills to solve, I can only recommend it.
(Spoiler) How to reduce lag a bit: (Spoiler)
You will have the option to carry two faries with you, use only one of them to reduce the lag. Two fairies at the same time will lag pretty often and make the fights/jumps worse. IF I remember it right it is best to let only one fairy of your choice level up from the beginning to get pretty tough so you donŽt have to use two.
