    Fight monsters and explore a medieval world. Aveyond is
    packed with more than 60 quests, tons of places to explore, and over 50
    hours of game play. If you like games like Final Fantasy, Chrono
    Trigger, and Dragon Warrior, you are going to love Aveyond.

    A powerful deity, Ahriman, has opened the Demon Portal and dark
    creatures now threaten the great isles. You must stop the destruction
    and destroy Ahriman before it is too late. The Sword of Shadows is the
    key to your redemption. You must find it in the mystical isle of Aveyond and use it to seal the Demon Portal and stop Ahriman.

    Review from Nov. 13, 2010

    Aveyond 1: Rhen's Quest (RPG)

    Options for this first
    Aveyond game include Windowed/Full-screen (the game WILL stretch to
    wide-screen mode), Music On/Off, Change Keyboard Controls (choose the
    buttons on the keyboard that will control your character's movements,
    etc), Optimize Game (advanced options) and a Tutorials folder.

    By default, the Esc button will toggle your menu
    Arrow keys control movement
    Enter or Spacebar will allow you to interact with others
    and there are three quick keys:

    A - Journal
    S - Items Menu
    D - Options Menu

    Or, just use the mouse and right-click to get to the Menu! You have
    keyboard control, but you also have mouse-control on this game - A major
    PLUS for me!

    As this is an older game, I highly recommend
    either exiting the game or switching to Windowed mode before switching
    between programs (I do that a lot during the review process). If you
    forget and have trouble getting back into the loaded game, try
    right-clicking on the game icon (in the Taskbar) and select "Restore" in
    order to get the game up where you can see it again.

    There are
    three difficulty modes: Easy, Normal and Expert (great for
    replayability!) You also have an option to skip the introduction.

    You need to be sure to SAVE OFTEN!! You cannot have multiple profiles, per se, but
    you do have multiple save slots. You can use these slots for multiple
    game-players in your house, but I recommend using at least two of the
    save slots for yourself. The reason is that you will get to certain
    "triggers" in the game, and once these triggers happen, you can't go
    back to that point unless you've saved before it happens. If your
    character/party gets killed because you've explored too far, it's not
    going to do you much good to have saved way out in the middle of
    nowhere, so make use of the separate save slots!

    Rhen's Quest starts out pretty slowly. There is no battle
    early in the game, as you need to get the gist of the story. The first
    quest is very simple - collect five flowers for the festival that will
    be coming the following day. No monsters to fight, no confusing map to
    traverse. The game successfully walks you through the basics of how an
    RPG is played without being overwhelming, and without a ton of reading.

    Things will get interesting soon (don't forget to SAVE OFTEN!).
    The thought of what comes next is horrifying to me, but I won't ruin it
    for you . Suffice to say, soon you will be fighting your first monsters.

    Monsters on the map are visible and can be avoided if you're quick
    enough. The battles are NOT real time - they are turn-based. Again,
    the developers do a good job making the game easy-to-understand for

    Choose your action (attack, use item, cast spell, etc), then select
    the creature or player you want to affect. I really like that you
    don't have to select the same action over and

    over again - If you want to attack again, you don't have to select
    "Attack" in the list, just click on the monster again. Nice!

    To review, this game has mouse and/or keyboard control, is easy to
    understand, has turn-based battles and starts off slow. If you enjoy
    the demo, get it. You'll definitely have money well-spent on this game.
