3 Stars of Destiny Review
Take On a Powerful God
In 3 Stars of Destiny, an evil god has set his eyes on a mysterious power held by a trio of youths and has set a trap to capture them and claim the power for his own. You'll need to form a strong party and hone your skills to foil his plan in this thrilling role-playing game (RPG) and prequel to the Laxius series.
You'll explore a vast world of forest, caves, villages, and more. You'll have a variety of quests to take on and enemies to battle against. You can adjust the difficulty of the game to find the challenge that you want, and also adjust how often you'll come across enemies to battle. A helpful tutorial and simple controls make this a game that's easy for anyone to learn and play.
Tutorial Gets You Into the Action Fast
You start off in 3 Stars of Destiny with an introduction to the story and tutorial, and then jump right into the action. The story plays a central role in the game from the start and drives your exploration. You travel throughout towns and forests as you progress through the game. You can find various items, secret rooms, and boxes of treasure hidden around the world. These items can be new armor or weapons, food that restores health or cures things like poison, or items that are only useful to sell (like eggs). You'll need to collect items and earn gold to purchase better weapons, armor, and skills. You'll also need to keep a healthy amount of gold so that you can rest your party at inns.
Turn Based Combat
As you explore, you'll randomly encounter enemies and a battle will begin. Combat is turn-based (like in many other RPGs), and you have several options on how to battle. You can use the basic attack, defend yourself, use skills that can restore health or deal damage, and use items that can do the same.
A lot of strategy can come into play when deciding which attacks, skills, and items to use and which target to use them on. As you progress in the game, you'll quickly gain new allies that will join you in exploration and battle. It won't be long before you're taking on a large group of fierce enemies with your own group of heroes. You'll be able to collect and purchase stronger armor and weapons, as well as learn more powerful skills.
One of the better features of the game is the ability to choose a difficulty before starting. You can choose an easy experience where enemies are weaker and you are stronger, or a tough and challenging experience with difficult enemies. The difficulty level also affects the number of save spots scattered throughout the game. On top of that, you can adjust the frequency at which you encounter enemies in the wild. It makes the game more attractive to a larger group of players, and lets you experience the gameplay and story even if you aren't the best or most experienced RPG player.
The one downside is that even on the normal setting for encounter frequency, the rate at which you get pulled into battles is still fairly high. Fighting enemies several times in one area can get annoying when the mobs aren't a threat, and can be dangerous if they are.
The controls for the game are relatively simple and straightforward. Combat, moving and interactions can all be accomplished with the mouse or keyboard. Additionally, there is a helpful tutorial to teach you the basics of the game (from equipping items to combat) using either the mouse or keyboard.
Decent 2D Graphics
The graphics in the game are fairly simple and 2D. However, it doesn't really hurt the game or detract from the gameplay at all. The graphics are also similar to those of many other RPGs (such as Laxius or Aveyond). Similarly, combat animations are fairly limited and not all that exciting, but it's not a huge issue. The sound effects and music are both great additions to the game that add to the atmosphere and help draw you into the game.
Conclusion - A Fun Game With Humorous Dialogue
3 Stars of Destiny is an addictive and entertaining RPG that's excellent for any fan of games like Laxius and Averyond, as well as anyone else. Humorous dialogues help tell an interesting story that drives the gameplay and exploration. You'll explore a vast world of forest, caves, villages, and more.
You'll have a variety of quests to take on and enemies to battle against. You can adjust the difficulty of the game to find the challenge that you want, and also adjust how often you'll come across enemies to battle. A helpful tutorial and simple controls make this a game that's easy for anyone to learn and play. Don't hesitate to give this game a try.
