    Fastar! may be a parody of RPG and action titles, but its strong, simple gameplay beats the pants off just about everything out there while still making your crack a smile.

    It's challenging, requires a surprising amount of thought, and most importantly, is fast. Pick it up for some great action, just don't go in thinking that you are playing the next Final Fantasy.

    Fastar! is an action RPG with an original kind of enemies, never seen before: squares. The RPG elements are very simple but the fighting against the different squares is more difficult than it can appear.

    Fastar! is not what most would expect of an Action RPG, nor is it what most would expect from Kooistra having played his previous app store releases - admittedly, the game left me scratching my head at first and it took me several plays to warm to it. Set aside such expectations, however, and Fastar reveals itself to be an excellent casual action game, well worth the paltry price of admission.

    Fastar! is a very unusual game, unlike any Action-RPG we've played before. It's worth a try if you want something different.

    Most games last a couple of minutes. [Dec 2010, p.94]

    I'm stunned by the fact that this game is enjoyable.

    Fastar! is a clever distillation of the role-playing form, even if it lacks the variety or dynamism of other quick-hit adventures.
