Shallow storyline and game play make this game nothing but average.

Astonishia Story: Take on the role of Knight Loyd and try to recover a mystical staff.

A.S. is your typical rpg, you have towns with inns and shops, and territory full of monsters outside of the towns, where you fight and level up and learn some impressive spells. There is not really any exploring, you want want to explore either, load times and battles can take up quite a bit of time if your in a hurry and they're quite annoying. Your just following what everyone tells you to do until eventually you beat the game.

The graphics are 2d, old school, and the spells are quite impressive and flashy.

The music is pretty awful, you might want to turn it off during play.

It uses turn based type of gameplay, which can be slow.

The biggest problem I had with this game is that throughout the entire world is all the same monsters from start to finish. That makes it even more repetitive. The bosses are way too easy, and even sometimes annoying.

There is no character customization, no choosing stats or spells, just some armor and a weapon.

A.S. is too unoriginal to recommend.
