A fantasy adventure in which you control a party searching the land of Hestor for a wise wizard possessing knowledge necessary to stop an invading demon army. The game uses three-quarters overhead perspective and boasts a conversation system with over 70000 words.
Daemonsgate is a top-down RPG made by Imagitec Design. You play the role of a young hero who is the only hope left of saving the besieged city Tormis. It is surrounded by demonic hordes so it's no easy task!
You start off all by yourself at the "Pigge and Ballbearing" inn located within the city. However, new recruits for your party are not far off, so finding them should pose no problem. The game is fairly easy to get going and you'll be immersed in the gameplay before you know it.
The graphics are functional and I found the artwork fitting for a game of this type and age.) You can have conversations with many non player characters although most of them are generic and just walk around the map. The innkeepers tend to be more knowledgeable so they can be a valuable source of information. There are a few minor subplots and distractions from the main task as your journey progresses but the game is event driven so there is no passing task X before completing task Y first.
I did have fun finishing this game but it was hampered by bad designs in a few places. This is particularly true of the last level. Deamonsgate is a game of moderate difficulty but its fairly easy to discover actions required to advance the plot, so you probably won't find yourself being stuck and not knowing what to do next. All in all, it is a solid adventure RPG that will keep you busy travelling around temples and taverns in order to complete the quest at hand. If killing demons and saving cities does it for you, I guess you'll be right at home.
The game is very old, so you should not expect to muhc of the grafics, also they where good in the time the game was programmed. The Game is a epic RPG, wich will forfill lots of RPG player dreams, modern games cant reach. Beside a detailed inventory (head, breast, arm, legs, right and left Hand, belt, backpack,..) and various character abilitys (strenght, wisdom, agility, charisma and lots more) and skills ( over 20) wich can be improved in many diffrent ways through 8 levels. Along with many other fancy opions (like you can talk with everyone you see about everything, big knowlegde database, many locations, varios random ecounters, etc) the game provides RPG fans with many great things.
Note that players who are used to modern games, will have difficulties, with the difficult and partly confusing game control. There aint no drag and drop or similars. And without a manual, you will have difficulties learning howto play the game.
There are a few weak parts on the game tho. for instant, the fighting (realtime like the game) is very weak and partly confusing. And if you accidnetly skip to a fwd part in the story (can only happend if you do not follow the main plot strictly) you may make the game unfinnihsable.
Another sadly bad made thing in the game (beside minor bugs like male pictures with female names on random people) is the HUGE world. Every epic fan will now shout, but belive me, the world is huge, and there aint no automap. You can literly spend hours, searching for a city, or even worse, for a certain house in a city.
So all in all: For epic RPG fans, who have no problem with uncomftable controlling, the game is can be alot of fun. For everyone who needs modern Click and action control, for everyone who cannot live wiht older grafics and for everyone who does not like to read text, this game is no fun.
One of the few old games that failed commercially despite an ambitious marketing campaign... which in this case includes a 30-min "The Making of Daemonsgate" video with the first copies.. mine still works G. The game really *deserves* the bad sales it got, due to poorly designed levels (the final Demon's dimension in particular is almost impossible to get through), banal plot, and repetitive dialogues. Underrated, sure, but not by much -- recommended ONLY if you are an extremely patient gamer who have finished all other RPGs and simply must play another one.
Let me start by saying that if you aren't a roleplay game fan don't bother reading on as only true roleplay fans will find this game worth playing. You start the game in a city which you can then explore. The movement and general interface is simply bad and boring. You move your character around with your mouse or the arrow keys. The poorly done animation makes it look like there is something wrong with your characters legs or something similar.
Daemonsgate does offer the classic parts from regular roleplay games like unlocking and picking doors, inventory screen etc. but it's the general gameplay that is lacking not to mention the lack of a good story that can usually save any roleplay game from being regarded as a poorly done game. Seems like the developers failed in both things with Daemonsgate.
