IMG Reviews DROD: Journey to Rooted Hold
12:43 PM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story

IMG has posted a review of DROD: Journey to Rooted Hold, the latest game from Caravel Games. Here's a clip from the review:

Gaming in DROD is old school to the core. The action is top-down and movement is both grid and turn-based. Navigating using the keyboard, the gamer guides Beethro through rooms that are puzzlers disguised as combat scenarios with herds of nasty creatures. The game is turn-based, but not in the standard Final Fantasy-RPG style. It works this way: Beethro gets a chance to move, then ALL the bad guys move at once. While that may make things sound pretty much impossible, all the enemies have different rules to define their movements. I won't divulge too much of that info because the way many of the enemies move are puzzles in and of themselves, but some enemies will follow you no matter how you move, some will only move if you trigger their sight and some have trouble following certain types of movement. Combine keeping track of all that with endless room puzzles and DROD is one heck of a challenge.
