Indeed - Azutura feeds on people's fears. The solution is found and crafted by the best alchemists of the realm: a special relic whose vapours will put the Demon in a profound sleep for the next few decades or so.

    The Book of Legends is a classic retro J-RPG that proves itself to be long-lived, solid, interesting, full of things to do and with many characters and secrets to discover. On the other hand, it's a classical formula with very little new stuff. But that's not a big deal.

    The Book of Legends is a good RPG Maker game worthy of Aldorlea's pedigree, but it has the potential to be more. I'm left feeling as if the limitations of RPG Maker prevent the game from realizing its full potential.

    I enjoy 2d-roleplaying a la 16-bit, but here the Portuguese team from Aldorlea Games takes the easy way out. Where other retro developers try to combine old school visuals and mechanics with modern amenities, this is as pure as it gets – and sometimes it just feels old.

    Hard not to give this game five minutes of my time to write a review given how many hours I sunk into it (more than 100 according to Steam).Hard not to give this game five minutes of my time to write a review given how many hours I sunk into it (more than 100 according to Steam). It has everything that makes a great RPG. The retro feel is a delight. The characters are very good. Everything in this title makes you want to keep playing. Expand

    this game is like other rpg makers game, has 8 bit era visuals and old school charms
    jrpg combat feels stale to me honestly after i have
    this game is like other rpg makers game, has 8 bit era visuals and old school charms
    jrpg combat feels stale to me honestly after i have played them over years but if u still play turn based games nothing matters here.
    story is not weak or spectacular. like most adventurer u go on journey not knowing whats ahead which is good thing nowaday cuz most games are very predictable
    what its better than most main stream rpg is it has strong rpg element even though graphic is weaker
    aside of turn based fights, u can actually have enjoyment on looting and developing chacracters.
    pros:
    - little visual appeal but strong rpg aspects
    - nostalgic feels all over game
    - combat is challenging not walking in the park
    cons:
    -lack of map means u can get lost for hours and backpedal all across map
