There are dozens and dozens of different elemental monsters to discover, and that’s half the joy of the game. The other half is the bright charm and personality of Alchemic Jousts. It’s not the deepest strategy game you’ll ever play, but it’s one of the most charming that you’ll see for some time to come.
Alchemic Jousts is a fairly simple game and it is definitely a one trick pony of playing rock, paper, scissors. The ability to unlock more permutations of elements as you progress is a nice aspect to the game, and adds some longevity. Unfortunately the enemy AI can feel super difficult and unfair on the harder settings, but on the easier settings there is some limited gentle fun to be had here.
SummaryAlchemic Jousts is a 2D action strategy game in which you discover new skills by combining the ones you already know. Command your elementals and support them with a wide variety of skills. Control the arena and crush your opponent in one-to-one encounters. [Playstation.com]
