    It's a casual beat-em-up with floaty controls, pseudo-RPG character customisation, and a boring comedy plot. It reminded me of Deathspank but without the "witty" writing. The fights are hugely repetitive, the enemies are palette-swapped every so often but there are only ever a limited number of them on screen and their attack and movement patterns are easy and dull.

There are only 5 buttons and it's incredibly, ridiculously easy to go flying into chasms by pressing L, L to do a charge attack. After spending a couple of hours on it, I have no sense of having achieved anything - it's just a timewaster. Expand

    Reaper’s main adventure can use a little more meat, but cutting up enemies should keep you busy regardless.

    The last Hexage title is unexpectedly original. It is able not only to decline precisely and clean scrolling beat em up dynamics, but to mix them with a (unexpected) sprinkling of shoot'em up and a very simple but solid GDR structure. Absolutely worth the free try since level 10.

    Reaper - Tale of a Pale Swordsman does nothing revolutionary, but it does everything pretty well. It's a simple, fun, good looking action RPG, full of quests, weapons and items for you to unlock.
