Cladun: This is an RPG Review

 

What can we say...it's an RPG.

Cladun: This Is An RPG was one of the more daunting starts to a game I think I can remember playing recently, particularly in this era of game tutorials holding your hand for the first hour or two before setting you loose. However, the graphics and...

Yep. After all these years, 8-bit dungeon crawling is still fun. Some of you may remember the days of the 8 and 16-bit. Those were the days. You'd sit on...

Great 8-bit look ; Fun gameplay ; Magic Circle is deeply fun ; Great music ; Multiplayer is a blast ; Actually funny dialog

Can become rather difficult ; Leveling grinding is a must ; Sometimes gets laggy online

Some of you may remember the days of the 8 and 16-bit. Those were the days. You’d sit on the floor of you room staring at a television screen playing the newest game you just got for your birthday (and the only one you’ll get until maybe Christmas, if...

ClaDun: This is an RPG! Review

 

What did I do to deserve this RPG, my lords?

Deep RPG at $20!; Little barrier to entry; Deep hero customization; Create your own characters; Cool pixel-art style

Endings are okay, credits are long; Multi-player is there, but broken

Cladun: This is an RPG!

 

ClaDun - This is an RPG! is an unapologetic tribute to the great games of the 8-bit era. Some of the charm may be lost on today's new-school gamer, but to those who know their gaming history ClaDun will bring back some fond memories. Don't let this PSN...

To visualize the magic circle, think of a cross, the character the player is using resides in the middle and on any side and above and below their can be one or two places for sub-heroes to attach.  Now each formation is different, players may only be...

Cladun: This Is An RPG

 

Cladun's name is something of a misnomer. Cladun is a dungeon crawler that happens to have loosely related story bits between dungeons. Imagine Final Fantasy and Nethack got together and had a kid. Cladun is the newest in a series of new old games. The...

Deep and rewarding party customization, random dungeon makes for great replay value

Magic Circle can take a while to learn, the story is presented as the main mode when it is clear that more development was spent on the Rangeon system

Review: Cladun: This is an RPG (Sony PSP)

 

You start off the game with only two characters – Souma and Pudding. Yes those are their names. Every few dungeons you beat, you earn a weird little story segment that is pretty light on character development or any real substance, as they are meant to...

Cladun: This is an RPG is definitely just that. There’s no bait and switch here. What you’ll be getting for your Cladun: This is an RPG is definitely just that. There’s no bait and switch here. What you’ll be getting for your $19.99 is a game that is...

Cladun: This Is An RPG

 

About a month ago, I'd never heard of it. Like many wonderful games coming out this month, it was overshadowed by Halo: Reach, Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood and Metroid: Other M. So when it was offered, I reverted to a Google search, routing around the...

Cladun - This is an RPG! Review

 

Modern retro gaming done right

Great sense of humor, magic circle is a fantastic twist on the RPG party mechanic, satisfying dungeon combat

Lots of trial and error involved, this game needs a manual

Cladun: This is an RPG Review

 

The 8-bit days are well behind us but this generation, we've already seen a lot of “retro-chic” productions, including Atlus' recent 3D Dot Game Heroes. While the latter is more of a homage to old-school Zelda adventures, NIS America's Cladun: This is...

Cladun: This is an RPG is made for the old-school RPG lover who appreciates nostalgic throwbacks with a dash of modern glazing and almost endless smile-inducing comedy. The learning curve is a little high, the gameplay during combat can feel a touch...
