An advanced game book-like game

If we had to be historically accurate, the roots of Sword and Glory go back to some early Spectrum games which were a sort of game books but involved a few variables as well. Of course, there are many games based on this premise, but the weirdly eerie atmosphere created by artsy noire and white sprites sprinkled with color gives to this game an eye-catching look since the very first time you run it.

Once you play, everything's quite RPG-esque. Choose your clan and beliefs, your perks and throw yourself into the adventure. Adventures are made of a series of microquests more or less randomly chosen from an event pool, while fights are 2D fighting minigames, very simple yet surprisingly more thrilling that other actual 2D fighting games out there.

In a nutshell, a comprehensive game book game. Design may not be of your liking, brawls can become too haphazard even though you understand how the gears turn inside, but in the end it's a n experience worthy to be recommended.

    I love this game very much.. so much I play it regularly, so its pretty adictive to my opinion. Im really hoping for a number two of this game because it still can have potential drilled inside..

    Half the screen is solid black outside quests, making it near impossible to play

    Such simple controls and rules. Yet, Ifelse has made this game outstandingly well. With combat being a type of rock-paper-scissors, with a shield bash thrown in, it couldn't be any simpler than this. But simplicity doesn't mean easy. Once you accrue a bit

    I really enjoy this game, it is simply great, my reason for 4* is because when you try to visit locations other than your home the game crashes and corrupts your save, if this problem is fixed I will give 5* gladly

    For some reason the screen splits diagonaly for the text heavy parts, still playable, but not as much fun.
