DFG Exclusive Review Summary

A superior game, one of the very best in its category.


  • Intriguing story with a centuries old prophesy, mad magicians, and vampires trying to take over the world
  • Three levels of difficulty make it accessible to new RPG players
  • Monsters appear on the map in real-time so there is no worry about running into random battles as you explore the world
  • The use of either the mouse or keyboard, or both, makes the controls very intuitive (whatever works best for you)


  • With around 10 hours of gameplay the game is slightly on the short side for an RPG
  • Since it is the first Quest in a series, the story does leave you waiting upon the next installment

Mel, a young orphan thief, thinks she's taking on just another job when she agrees to retrieve an heirloom orb from Darkthrop Keep. However, when she touches the orb and its glow encases her, she realizes that something strange is going on. That realization is completely confirmed when she returns the orb to the man and he turns out to be a vampire!

Now, Mel must embark on an epic quest to defeat the vampire before he destroys humanity. Can you guide the young thief through rat-infested dungeons, frozen mountains and dangerous cities and help her battle terrible enemies and save humanity?

Review by Alex

Aveyond: Lord of Twilight continues this series' classic role-playing-game action with the same gameplay elements found in such titles as Final Fantasy and Chrono Trigger.

Typical 2D RPG

All the usual elements are there: turn-based battles, dark creatures to fight (from the weakly rat to powerful skeleton warriors), plenty of loot to find, and various party members to level up and develop. There are dozens of lands to explore and the ability to adjust the difficulty at the beginning of your quest makes this title accessible to RPG fans old and new.


One Part in a Bigger Story

The only slight issue some fans of the Aveyond series may have is that the developers decided to go a slightly different route this time around and have broken up the story into two games, so Lord of Twilight is slightly shorter than other previous Aveyond titles and you are kind of left with a cliff-hanger ending until the second part of the series.

That is not to say that there are plenty of quests and adventure to be found and spells to throw around. Whether it's slinking through the night to steal a statuette from a noble's bedroom to facing a party of blood-thirsty vampires, you'll find several hours of enjoyable gameplay.

Conclusion - Short But Good Classic RPG Gameplay

Aveyond: Lord of Twilight is a perfect example of a classic RPG and works well to introduce new fans to the genre while also providing challenging gameplay for the more hard-core RPG gamers. Its intriguing tale draws you in and by the end will have you craving the next game in the series.
