High-Def Digest

90 / 100
"Cosmic Star Heroine does for the 16-bit JRPG what Shovel Knight did for 8-bit platformers. It takes everything that worked about them to remind you of why those games are...

Vandal

84 / 100
"This is probably the best JRPG ever made in the West, aimed at players who miss the 16-bit aesthetic and enjoy a good story."

Destructoid

75 / 100
"Playing through took me about 12 hours, though it might take more or less time if you bump up the difficulty or stick to the critical path. None of the problems I had with this...

Retro RPG, extremely well done.

Halaster
Verified purchase
Cosmic Star Heroine is a great example of a modern retro-styled RPG done right. It's obvious the creators put a lot of love and care into the product, and it shows! From the great graphics to the absolutely mindblowing soundtrack, everything in this game is amazingly detailed and crafted. The game wears it's inspirations on it's sleeves, and if one is a fan of the old days, in particular Chrono Trigger, this should scratch that particular itch for most retro gamers looking for something fresh. The game can also provide quite a fair bit of challenge, with adjustable difficulty, and figuring out which party member, or which skill set you wish to use can truly test one's skills. Overall this game comes highly recommended, but only for those who'll appreciate, and actively look for it's retro style!

A great JRPG without the boring parts

The Philosopher
Verified purchase
This is a great game. It feels like an SNES-era JRPG (specifically Chrono Trigger), but with an added layer of challenge that makes it far more interesting. At the higher difficulties, the fights are like puzzles that take multiple attempts to win. Don't expect to breeze through by just spamming attacks--you'll need to actually use every move and item in your arsenal to achieve victory. The only downside to the game (so far) is the cringey, self-aware "humor." I wish the game had the courage to take itself seriously. If you like old JRPGs, or if you want to like old JRPGs, but get bored of grinding and easy battles, you need to get this game. For fans of: Chrono Trigger, Final Fantasy III/ VI, PS1 and SNES RPGs

Simple and great throwback RPG

Fanatical User
Verified purchase
Old-school style RPG. I kind of appreciate that the combat system and everything is a bit stripped down, but still fun and engaging. A lot of modern RPGs can feel a bit overwhelming, especially if it's not a genre you play a lot, but I think this one does a good job creating something that's simple enough to grasp, but is still fun to use and leaves room for strategy and different play styles. Pixel art is extremely well done, and the music is also great. It's not super deep, but if you're looking for a shorter throwback RPG, give it a shot.

This is another gem by Zeboyd games. If you’ve played Cthulhu Saves the World or This Way Madness Lies, you know what the combat system has in store. Every few turns you get an overdrive burst, a lot of combats boil down to timing your buffs around that turn. It’s fun, it’s got great humor, and if you ever are stuck then you can change difficulty settings on a whim. The characters don’t disappoint, the music is solid, and it’s not too long of a game to the point where it feels bogged down at all. Definitely recommend this one.
