The game was taking too long and I was giving up hope on finishing it when I found ... Goodie Caves!

I love that this game allows you to cheat in order to make the game shorter. Very nice touch from the developer!

The story was pretty good. I'm not sure, however, how I feel about the story being separated by multiple games. It felt like it would have been more rewarding to have breaks in the story and allow the next game to pick up rather than make the player feel as though they were left with nothing but a cliff hanger.

The game play itself was very smooth.

Regardless of how I felt about the story ending in a bit of a cliff hanger, I can't help but add a thumbs up for this game. :)



...........................Moderator comment................................

I see what you are saying about the cliff hanger. I suppose that's why they split this particular game into three parts. If you consider that most games of this type used to cost a minimum of $20 each only a few years ago, but since the recession hit prices have dropped dramatically, the developers have been very wily and split this particular game into three parts. They are still self contained, but to link the three they have had to create a story line that links each game together.

I really don't know whether we will be getting another on in the series. I suspect not, though I reckon we are more likely to purchase the final one in the series if the second one was also given away in the not too distant future.

Downloaded fine and installed perfectly on Win 7 x64 Home Prem. Game play was similar to what you would expect from classic FFantasy and Phantasy Star series games. I personally liked the dark theme and after playing the game through (About 10 hours or so), I felt inspired to purchase the reamaining ones in the series and have done a complete playthrough of the Orbs of Magic series. Gameplay and story were great, but I felt it could have had a little more detail to the story. The ony complaint i had was that the menu list kept changing order. I can understand this being it was a game that was developed in chapters, but it annoyed me a little.
I loved Mel and company's character development in the series. Again Fairly well written.

I personally give it a 9/10

After playing through it all, I came back to add: GREAT GAME! Thanks so much for giving it away - I'm seriously considering buying the other parts (although I nearly never buy PC games... okay, apart from The Sims and Age of Wonders...)
It's not too hard but I was VERY happy about the provided walkthroughs when I got stuck now and then (and I would have missed some side-quests otherwise).

I've been been playing this for several days now. It's a high quality, enormously funny and entertaining RPG. I have two suggestions I would make to the developers is to have the sound and music separate, so that the music (good though it is) can be turned off without loosing the sound. I'm sure I'm not the only one who doesn't always want background music, but I hate to loose the actual game sounds. Also, the ability to zoom out or to have a map of the area (even if only the area traveled by the character) would be a big bonus. Thanks GOTD and Amaranth!

@35: ASPack is an EXE compression technology used to reduce the size of EXE files. The side effect is it also wraps the EXE file and make debugging difficult. Think of it as ASProtect's little brother.

Related is UPX, which is another EXE compressor, but that one you can decompress the resulting EXE, and is open source.

If I have to judge the quality of ASPack and ASProtect, I'd say they are poor for protecting EXEs. Their debugger checks can both be bypassed by modifying the return from the Windows API call IsDebuggerPresent. The new SKE edition of ASProtect is apparently more secure, but I haven't seen a lot of it around.

Thank you to all who left constructive feedback; it was much appreciated.

For me this was one of the best giveaways in quite some time. The total number of downloads was just over 8000 which is an average download number for this project. I'm quite surprised that it was so low considering it was a new giveaway being given away.

I didn't expect it to reach the dizzy heights of a couple of the more popular genres such as the HOG's and Match 3 games that have recently been given away here which have had between 18 to 21 thousand downloads each despite having been given away previously; then again I suppose RPGs are a niche market that many casual gamers won't bother with. Cest la vie. :).

Now it's too late as the giveaway ended less than a minute ago. ;-)

Ahh, I'm glad you got it fixed Marshall...I was getting the same error with windows7 64 bit on my gaming rig, so I know it wasn't my hardware, xD. The Mod recommending the DEP fix on one of your comments prompted a google search on how to do it, was easy for me to find, I thought you would take the same path or I would have posted a link to the guide I found. I was much happier with that than some of the wierd dll fixes I was seeing, especially after changing compatability didn't work at all. And it sees it as RGSS, because that's the platform its built on, its a game building engine, like Unreal etc.


..............................Moderator Comment.........................

Glad to hear you got it working. It can be really frustrating when a game won't work and you can't figure out what's causing it. Usually it's something simple, and usually involves windows settings or conflicts with other programs; though it can also be resolution problems. I'm not sure whether i included the DEP fix over in the FAQ's section of the Game discussion forums.

If you ever get a problem running a game again, it''s worth checking that FAQ thread. you'll find it in the Game discussion stickies. :)

Thanks Verity, that fixed it. Although I had to look all over to find where to set it. And there were a couple of other things Win 7 didn't like but it seems to work now. BTW, Win 7 sees "Lord of Twilight.exe" as RGSS??




........................Moderator comment..........................


Did you not read my suggestion back when you first posted? I did mention turning off DEP as those app crashed can often be caused by DEP. Not too worry. Just glad you got it working.

Had to stop back and sing praise for today's give away. $10 for this game is a winner in my book. Will probably be purchasing other Aveyond games from this series. Love the music, it's well done. I much rather game with a mouse for casual gaming, which this game has, but I would prefer the ability to be able to swap mouse button functions.
This in my opinion is one of the best game giveaways ever!
Thank you, Amaranth, and GOTD.

I don't normally play this type of game, but was intrigued by the descriptions here, and by hearing the music when my husband played it.

At a quick glance - a few minutes of playing only - I can say that the graphics are colourful and appealing, the soundtrack out of the norm and the playability (speaking as a complete beginner) is good.

So, yes - I'd recommend giving this one a try. I expect I'll return to it a bit later, and explore a bit further! Thanks for another interesting reason for not getting on with work. :-)

I did not get this game from this website, because I bought it as soon as it came out. I love all of the games in the series and I am glad many others are getting the opportunity to try them. The developer's website, www.aveyond.com, should help with any of the technical problems people are having. The best part of her games are the characters and stories :) Enjoy!

I didn't need to download this offer, but wanted to thank GOTD for getting such a good game up, especially for Mother's day. I have all the Aveyond games. In fact, the original Aveyond(after Ahriman's Prophecy)was the first game I ever played on a PC. I have been addicted ever since. If you like old school style games with the modern convenience of using a mouse, Amanda does a great job of making them fun! This game is a keeper!

Note: If you grab the free Ahriman's Prophecy, it is real time based play and a bit harder than the giveaway. ;)

So I played the tutorial,first quest, escaped and I am now resting in Thais. Like I already thought this is indeed a retro rpg. So far the story seems interesting enough, the controls easy to learn (personally I walk with the arrows and do the rest with the mouse)
Does this game has GameMaker written all over it? Heck yes, do I care HECK NO.
For the retro gamers among us, for those that loved the old zelda's and final fantasy's and for those that only have heard about these iconic games GET THIS GAME for what I think is gonna be hours of fun, aggravation, laughter, swearing and puzzling.

I had some loading hick-ups during start up and the first few seconds after the first two item pick ups, this went away after that though and didn't rerturn during this brief session.




........................Moderator comment..........................


Thanks for your feedback noname. I agree with you. it's rare to get something more appealing for the dedicated gamer. I've been downloading games from the game giveaway project since the day it was created and prior to that from the giveaway side of the project when they gave an average of a game every three or four days and have rarely een anything other than casual games. Probably the last one of this ilk (but not genre) was the card based RTS game we got about 4 years ago. Can't remember it's name offhand, but it was quite good.

It is not often that I am thrilled with a game presented by GGOTD, not because they have bad games but because the genres they present are more for the casual gamers that are happy with Angry Birds and FarmScapes or Bejeweled but not for the "hard core" gamers. However this little gem will give loads of fun to "us" as well, I hope the other episodes will be presented here in the near future as well but I am afraid that if this company is a bit clever..... well.... I would buy the others if the rest of the game is living up to what I have seen so far

Once again thanks GGOTD and Developers at Amaranth

Nice game, definitely worth downloading. Played about an hour so far. Enjoyed the retro look and feel: colors, textures, graphics all well done. Gameplay is nice and intuitive, happy to have the option for "easy/normal/hard". As a left handed player, its good when I have a game that doesn't require extensive key-mapping to make it playable without massive hand-contortions. Story-line so far looking like a standard RPG, with reasonably decent narration and dialogue. Definitely worth the download as a freebie, and if the rest of it maintains the quality of the initial gameplay, I may very well purchase the rest of the series. THANKS!!!!

Hi!
Its working great for me. The pointer gets a bit wobbly, but quite workable. Has an old style, but use to love Dragon Warrior/Zelda etc.
Had no problems and finished getting orb and moving on. Started in easy and might want medium though.

Nice 2D game,brings back memories of Link/Zelda on NES.
It would be nice if the larger map scrolled a bit smoother(jerky on mine).

I only had time to start the first quest,but I would also like to see more interactive fighting or at least animation in the fight scene for the player character.

Possibly a choice of a different font for the dialogs(like the font in the log book)

Thanks! Played the demo a long time ago, but never bought it. This reminds me of the old games, yes. The first "adventure" I ever played was LucasArts' "Loom", and the graphics were much like this! That was a great game, and I bought it from Steam a couple of years ago and replayed it - still fun!

This one installed, opened and played with no problems on my XP system. I'm an adventure gamer, not used to the RPGs with battles, but appreciate that the game lets you choose difficulty, which maybe will let me get through it on easy. It seems to involve puzzles as well, like adventure games, so I'm liking it.

Not every game that comes along on GGOTD is up my alley, but I download and try most of them, because, after all, they are FREE. LOL, I've sometimes been surprised to find I've enjoyed a type of game I thought I wouldn't, like brickshooters.

The only thing I would like a little clearer is how to do battle. Do you just click madly on the enemy (like the bugs in Magic Farm), or do you have to do something else? I mean, I've killed them, but not sure if I'm supposed to get hit, or if I do something different I won't.

Thanks. No go Win 7 x64 Ultimate. Tried DEP & compat modes. Nvidia GeForce GTX 460. 8 BB ram.
On C: where it tries to load & either closes or freezes PC.
First game that failed in long while but also first game I tried over past several weeks.





........................Moderator comment..........................


One of my secondary computers has the same set up re Win 7 Ultimate 64bit and a NVIDIA 460 Graphics card though only 6GB RAM and the game works fine. Possibly another problem. Have you worked though the FAQ's thread over in the game discussion forums? Possibly a resolution problem. I have several steam games that do the same thing when I'm running both my monitors as an extended display. They only work if I turn one off and/or duplicate the display.

I wouldn't delete it yet just in case we find a solution via the thread over in the forums. someone may come up wit another fix. :) Maybe try the demo from the developers site to see if it's the giveaway version that's the problem?.

This is a brilliant idea on the part of the developer. Give away the first in the series and those who like it will buy the rest. Reminds me of the old shareware model of games like Doom. I love RPG's and I've seen Aveyond being sold at various places but didn't know enough about it to take a chance. Thanks to Amaranth and GGOTD for the opportunity to try it out.

I had heard talk about this game and how good it was...So once I knew this was the game, I downloaded immediately. Being Mother's Day, I just set it up and played for a few minutes. They were right. Love the music and the retro look. Gonna get Ahriman’s Prophecy tomorrow and between the 2 and how I do..I may just have to buy the others..if need be.

Company's here got to go.

Thanks Amaranth and GGOTD for a great RPG game. Thanks Wrascally Wabbit to for a great review. If I have time will add more..

This is the first game that has interested me as a fairly hard core gamer. I downloaded it and it installed just fine, but I was getting the RGSS crash when I tried to run it. Adding a DEP exception worked though, and I look forward to enjoying the heck out of it when I'm ready for a new game ^_^

Sorry some people find it necessary to bash this game with their words... Aveyond is one of the best RPG's I have played in a very long time. I have all Aveyonds to date, even Ahriman's Prophecy, and am eagerly awaiting the carried on series from Amanda (/thinking (hoping) Mel and Edwards' children will be carrying on the tradition of superb role playing games..??? :) ). Please don't pass this up just because some naysayers think "old game" when they see "RPG",. This game is well worth every penny, should you have to pay for it.... Thank you Amanda and GAOTD!!!!!

When I checked my emali today I came right to the site and downloaded! I did not have to read anything to grab this one and activate it fast!! I am thrilled!! I played the hour demo years ago of the very first one and have been thinking about getting it through Big Fish for the past few months! I am so happy to know that this is the first in a series! I will be buying them for sure!!

This game reminds me of the Final Fantasy, Shining Force games! The work they put in to make the colors pop and all the textures! I know they used RPG Maker in the beginning, and it is a truly beautiful game! Money is hard to get in the beginning for me, the music is so lovely! The story is engaging. You care about what happens to everyone. I love the landscapes, the flowers, the blobby looking monsters. You do have to save all the time! One never knows when you will be defeated. I agree with your score. It is a fabulous game. If you are new to rpgs, this is a great game to start with. I am sure there are Let's Play on youtube where a player will go through the entire game and you can go back to it if you get stuck! I have used this many times for Skyrim and Fallout!!

You made this mom very happy Amranth Games and Game give away!!

@30: Not quite sure what could be causing it, as the fault module is a stack hash and doesn't tell much. One fact I can provide is the program's wrapped with ASPack (to developer: really, why?), so maybe that has something to do with it. Does the crash happen all the time?

For a discussion on StackHash, see http://tdistler.com/2009/04/10/stackhash-and-application-crashes-on-windows

Remember Working Designs and their RPG Games? Its like playing their
"Ultra Series" brand of games. This company is like an independent version of Working Designs. Great graphics and retro style play. After all newer is not always better! I like it simple and this game is relaxing to play with an entertaining dialog.

App crash's are often caused by DEP, so you could start by turning that off. Also check out the FAQ's section in the game discussion forums for possible tips. Try the free version of the original game which I've just linked to a the beginning of my review to see if that crashes as well. did you get that info from the event logs? If not check your event logs for more info.

If you don't find anything check back later just in case one of the more technically minded community members such as Mike or GMMan comment.

This is not my kind of game, but I thought I'd try it anyway. I found the custom cursor very "jittery" and a bit difficult to control with precision. I am a "lefty" but the game did not recognize that I have "switched" my mouse buttons. I didn't go any further than the Keep. If I had felt I had better control I might have played longer, but it was too annoying. Game deleted. Sorry.

Thanks as always for the opportunity to try new things.

I too am a lefty but have managed to adjust my gaming style to cope with the right handed oriented game world (It annoys me that most game controllers are designed for right handers and hardly any of the decent ones have a left hand alternative - for example the Razer Naga mouse an excellent mouse for playing rts games, which has 12 buttons arranged down the left hand side of the mouse and designed so that a right handed person can access the buttons with their thumb easily. I have to use my left pinky which isn't as precise as a thumb. It's the same with all Gaming keyboards (apart from one I came across recently) where the key pad is designed for right handers. Maybe one day. :)

Thank you for the warning Della, firstly you do need to have an account to be able to download the free game. I downloaded it earlier today and got no warning. Maybe your AV software is a little sensitive. Realore Games are a highly respected site. though it's not beyond the possibility that they may have been hacked.

Thanks for an RPG game. This is something I can sink my teeth into, pun intended. Please provide more RPGers as well as some turn-based strategy games like X-Com.

I played this game years ago (soon after it came out) and enjoyed it. Will be redownloading to play again. It's very long in length, well-written, and an enjoyable game. As someone who has used the program the developers used to program the game, I can appreciate how much work went into it.

I agree with the advice to Save Save Save. It's not a cakewalk.

Thank you! A great game that I'll enjoy alot. The graphics are fine for this type of game and lets you concentrate on the game play rather than the eye candy.

I'm a RPG fan so am happy to see this here. The publisher Amaranth Games also gives away the prequel to this series on their website. You can find it here: www.amaranthia.com/modules/oledrion/product.php?product_id=5

The prequel is named Ahriman's Prophecy and could be considered Aveyond 0. It was released in 2004, five years before today's game which came out in 2009. So expect the prequel to be a little more basic and old school. BTW, this is chapter 1 or 4 although it reaches a pretty good conclusion at the end of chapter 2. Chapters 3 and 4 are sort of like additional stories with the same characters.

Great review WR.

Thanks for the feedback Campy and the link to Ahriman's Prophecy. Totally forgot about that. ;-)
