This game provides a large world with many caves and dungeons to explore. However, the sameness of textures in each environment makes it incredibly easy to get lost without a map spell. Even seeking an item/weapon shop or an inn to save your progress in a friendly town can be a maze-like experience. The game is also often music free, which contributes to its vague bleakness. It does offer some interesting concepts, and is worth a try for a dedicated player.

So while said dungeon’s magic might be alluring to my sensibilities and the elemental sword might be plenty powerful, I found zero reason to progress in this broken-down crumbum of a game.
