The Skull of S’makh-Daon also adds new innovations to the genre, including a “drama star” system that encourages players to accept setbacks in the game rather than reloading and trying again, and a mini-game where players must disarm traps one component at a time using their character skills and available tools.

    A funny storyline and witty dialogue are Frayed Knights' highlights. Just watch out for its unintuitive menus and frustrating endurance system.

    The Skull of Smakh-Daon undoubtedly delivers exactly what it promises. Amusing dialogue and situations aplenty will be found wrapped inside a laborious dungeon crawler that tosses invisible dice around to determine everything inside of battle.

    Funny game about a gang of anti-heroes trying to find the treasure in a dungeon only to realize they've been used by their employer... itFunny game about a gang of anti-heroes trying to find the treasure in a dungeon only to realize they've been used by their employer... it doesn't compare Grimrock, clearly, but it is still a funny little game in its own right. The characters could have been a bit more... dunno, beautiful. Granted, it is probably for comic relief but they do not look all tnat great at all. The rest of the game is developed enough to justify the somewhat high price. Expand

The spells are somewhat complicated and it's not very easy to understand what they do. But other than that it's quite decent. The dialogs are interesting and different from the usual RPG. The characters are not very beautiful to look at though. Like the dialogs, the story has something new about it. Overall an okay game that could use a better interface. Expand
