    Join forces with elves and dwarves, and slay the evil dragon, Wyrmvarg in a retro-style fantasy RPG!

    Set out in search of the legendary weapons to free the world from the rule of Wyrmvarg!

    Employing 8-bit graphics and sound that hark back to the golden era of RPGs, Dragon Sinker brings a visual and audio feast to the table of hungry gamers starving for the nostalgia of the great classics of yesteryear!

    Scour the world in search of new companions and collect more than 16 jobs! Then lead up to 12 party members into turn-based battles and swap freely between 3 teams to take on a host of powerful foes! And if that were not exciting enough, character costumes also change according to their job, giving pixel lovers something even more to look forward to!

    Plus, with plenty of subquests for the hero to tackle and secret dungeons to explore, this is one adventure not soon to be forgotten!

    Dragon Sinker is fortunately no ‘Dragon Stinker’. True, there is nothing you haven’t seen before a couple of decades ago and there is little reason to once again venture into this quest if you happen to have played it on another platform previous to this release. But nostalgia is a powerful force and what the game does, it does so quaintly and provides many hours of blissful, care-free JRPGing tropes. Not revolutionary but still a very welcome choice for Switch owners with a retro itch. If you do love JRPGs, miss the simpler days and enjoy getting out of a game as much as you put into it, we have little reasons not to recommend you give this quest a go.

    Dragon Sinker's strength is that, in being such a slavish homage to one of the greatest JRPGs ever made, it too manages to be more playable than many of the original story JRPGs that Kemco produces. It is an endlessly replayable formula that the developers are copying wholesale, after all. But then, in being a slavish homage, the Dragon Sinker also opens itself up to comparisons with the game it's derivative of. And, sadly, it doesn't come out well in those comparisons at all.
