I usually try and look at videogames to see their flaws and how I would improve upon them if I myself would have made that same product with all the time and money I would need. Or indeed, having the source code, knowledge of how everything works and all the time in the world to tinker with it. There’s too much of that to be done with Iesabel, it’s a broken mess.
I would love to make an action RPG like this one could be, the classic hp/mana game, maybe with a twist or two. Iesabel has close to no redeeming qualities - much like baby geniuses - besides that it’s a shipped product that you could play if you wanted to. That’s more than much of what I’ve ever done, small personal projects with no outreach nor fans. In any case, all the menus and voice acting in this game are terrible and badly translated.
The gameplay was also pretty bad, difficulty to aim, even basic controls were confusing, enemies killed me way too fast for no reason, menus are assigned to weird hotkeys, stats and skills are poorly explained to irrelevancy, I couldn’t figure what my stamina was, nor why my character was a naked person getting murdered by mosquitoes. Or that giant wooden door in the middle of nowhere, or just the basic movement that didn’t work.
I suppose that showing exactly what stats do is a neat idea, maybe adding a small arrow with the ‘before’ and ‘after’ value would help this particular system work a bit better, but that would be like adding a bandaid on someone cut in half. I think this game is also an Android phone game, working with a touchscreen, it must also be terrible there.
Anyways, I love Action RPGs and I always want to try different ones, but this one… Nah, don’t play Iesabel, even I couldn’t fix it. (Also, what do the orbs in the skill tab mean? I think they represent stats required, why not just name them out?)
