RPG and dungeon crawler players will fall in love with Castle Torgeath, an Indie game that after three years of development was finally released. Enjoy playing a RPG with a twist as it adds mechanics from several different game genres.
You are called upon by an old friend asking you to find out the whereabouts of an expedition team that was sent to Castle Torgeath as you enter the castle and all of a sudden there is a cave in, you are trapped and the only way out is to venture deeper into the castle. On your quest you will face deadly traps, curses and even starvation.
As soon as you start you realize that this is a different breed of RPG, adding the element of starvation into a genre where you already have to manage your inventory and character stats carefully. Your starting choices for combating enemies are a sword or fireballs. Normally you are bound to either magic or physical character types in RPG games but that is not the case here as both are given to you at the outset.
The enemies range from spiders, rats, wolves and skeletons to bigger creatures like orcs, which gives you good degree of variation, as does the reanimation fog that will morph fallen enemies into more fierce creatures. A good example is a normal wolf that is transformed into a werewolf.
While the game does have some positive points there are a few negative factors such as the fact that they did add an option where you must manage the starvation of your character to start with. This will see most players’ running around scavenging for food since it does drop quite quickly, causing you to lose focus on the game. You will find yourself backtracking later in the game to find keys and the doors they belong to, as there is no quest system or indication.
The last point is the music that is triggered when you enter combat or when spotted by an enemy, at first you will be thankful as it does serve as an early warning but it does get annoying later. Even though it does have some flaws it’s an interesting dungeon crawler.
