Under rating threshold (show) I'd like to see a player strike order on the left hand side so I know which enemies will be attacking next and which players go first and how the item/spell attributes affect the characters. (+) if you agree

Ty for the suggestion! Edit: I just want to let you know. There is a high chance I wont be able to implement this since the game is already released and I might break something. I am the only one working on this game so I cannot test everything. I will definitely save this (maybe future versions I don't know).

Under rating threshold (show) Protip: Chests spawn randomly when entering a room. If you clear two rooms of monsters, you can hop between them indefinitely and spawn more and more chests (each without a single guardian).

Under rating threshold (show) This is one of the best RPGs I've ever played! I already finished this game on an other page, so here some tips: 1. Don't buy any equipment in the store! You will soon find enough epic (purple) or even legendary (orange) equipment to fully equip all your chars - then upgrade them! 2. This game basically is pretty easy, if you are in a difficult battle, always buff yourself first! I used everyone for a different class, so I had all buffs and a healer. Remember, sleeping enemies won't wake up if you use magic on them. 3. Every boss has 2 lifes (except the final boss - or is he the final one?) 4. Discover the whole floor to get a map of it. You can actually outrun every enemy! Use the environment to your advantage, the enemy will walk straight into a wall if you are behind it, and check the reaction time of the enemies: ninjas react really fast but samurai wait almost 10 seconds before they move. 5. HAVE FUN AND ENJOY THIS GAME! =D

Under rating threshold (show) There is 50 level's in Crystal Story. The first 25 levels are to do with the main story quests and side quest's, while the last 25 are optional. Reaching Level 50 will give you an optional Boss. Vote this so everyone can see please. ;]

Under rating threshold (show) I went ahead and tested crit - I took my level 60 characters, geared them for crit (crit over 200) and went back to the first floor. Regular attacks still never crit. The attacks that I mentioned earlier - unstable explosion, rocket launcher, silence attack, tranq shot, burst, poison attack, cyclone, poison nova, and darkness attack - again, these were the only attacks that crit (they did so pretty much 100% of the time). They have a few commonalities - they're all physical based. All of them except cyclone inflict a status effect. Maybe you have crit flagged as a status effect and only attacks with the qualities 'physical' and 'status possible' will crit? That doesn't explain cyclone though, unless you originally had it causing status and removed it while leaving the flag, so I don't know. I don't actually think this is a problem, I don't want to see omnislash or quake critting when they already deal thousands of damage.

Under rating threshold (show) Probably the best team makeup is Tristam/Mage, Kaeli/Rogue, Phoebe/Fighter, Reuben/Healer. Reuben is the only healer who has an Regan All spell, and thus nobody else can provide that buff. Tristam get's a useless self-buff as his level 20 skill for Fighter and Rogue (since you'll be spamming AOE buffs anyway), but a powerful single target attack as a Mage. Kaeli and Phoebe are just filling in the remaining two class spots for their classes' AOE buffs, but Phoebe does get a very impressive AOE damaging stun, and Kaeli's Rogue is well rounded with high single target and AOE damage. In general, other than the AOE stun, I find the Fighter class to be a bit underpowered, and it might be interesting to make Phoebe a Rogue and make Kaeli a second Mage, as Kaeli has an AOE stun as a Mage too.

Under rating threshold (show) Okay, I understand that the Zombie Defense is *supposed* to be quite hard on Expert mode, but it would be less infuriating to deal with if the game would register my clicks properly. I cannot count how many times I have lost, simply because the game refuses to register a click. Also, if the enemies are allowed to move while my blocks are falling, then *I* should be allowed to act, as well. At least give us the option to highlight the non-moving blocks while the others are falling, like you can in *most* games like that.

Under rating threshold (show) I've commented about this before but I REALLY want a way to view the stats on equipment. The only way to see the actual stat increases is to equip the item and then visit the armory, which is incredibly inconvenient. I'd rather be able to see it in my inventory simply by clicking on the armor/weapon and having it pop up on the right which stats get affected and the specific values the way it works in the armory but without the hassle of having to swap equipment constantly.

Under rating threshold (show) I would like to be able to see the stats of items I wish to buy or sell. And it would be interesting if resistances and weaknesses of different elements were on mobs, and this information could be easily accessed in combat once you learn it. Also it keeps telling me about these badges I earned, but I don't see where I can see em.

The comments are getting bad. Most of it is about no mute button 1/5. I might reply less now :( EDIT: Oh why is this one of the top comment now? Well I didn't mean it i guess. I'm still not as thick skinned as the other devs since I'm new, but I will try.

Under rating threshold (show) Minor bug: Treasure chests like to disappear after combat (before you have a chance to use them) and also appear in areas that you've already been through. Other than that minor problem, good job!

(507)

Developer response from lan14n

Thanks. Not a bug. Chests spawn at a low rate and carry either a global treasure or a gold. Killing monsters give more gold and give a higher chance of giving global treasure. Think of the chests as a reward for exploring. :)
