Description

Penny Arcade Adventures: On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness - Episode Two is the second part in the Penny Arcade Adventures series and takes off where Episode One left off. The player can create his/her own character to rid a steampunk 1922 version of the U.S. of Fruit Fucker robots with. The main characters of the Penny Arcade comics (Gabe and Tycho) quickly join the player's ranks. It is also possible to import the character used in the first episode.

Gameplay is similar to the first episode with turn based RPG combat and item searching similar to adventure games. In combat the longer the player waits with performing an attack the more damage it does, but in the meantime the enemy has its change to do damage to the player's characters. Blocking attacks has been made simpler in this sequel.

The game features many new enemies. Destroyed Fruit Fucker robots can be harvested for parts which can be used to upgrade weapons.
