Author's comments and explanations:

In Paladin's Quest, you play Chezni, a boy born with natural magical talent. Because of a bet, you "accidentaly" turn on an ancient machine of doom. Your goal is to stop this machine. You will meet many mercenaries, blue trees, green mountains, walk on clouds and fight pig-like creatures.

This is my third publication (of a different game). It was hard in many ways : the frame lag is hideous, making it hard to know which frame is right to press a button; the random battles are uglyly numerous, and there is little way to diminish this number ( I tried it many times); and before about half the game, those battles are necessary, if not to get quick enough to escape them!

On the bright side, rising stats is very easy, and so is the dropping of key items that raise stats of magic affinity. It was crucial to get +6 strength for Chezni until after Gabnid... Also, many times, you don't have to talk to key people (Karon, Mistuo) to go forward with your quest.

Here are the highlights

Possible improvements : restart altogether and pray for luck with respect to random fights; try to use less cards; fight less (if it can be done!)...

FractalFusion: Well done for an RPG. Accepting for publication.
