It feels like I'm a broken record these days, but the retro-graphics in EvilQuest really do it for me. They are well done, and bring a feel to the game that reminds me of the early RPGs I played back in the 8-bit and 16-bit eras. I also feel the retro graphics keep the game feeling a bit lighter than the dark tone the story takes.

This game is very much a dungeon crawler at heart. As soon as you take control of Galvis, you are tasked with finding your Dark Armor, which has been on display in the mess hall of the castle you were imprisoned in.

Attacks are bound to your A button, spells on the X button, and items are used quickly by tapping the Y button. The faced paced action makes this one role playing game I enjoy. The corner mini-map that fills itself out as you explore is another great touch.

Overall, I feel this is an excellent title at a great price-point of 80 MSP, and a game you should check out if you ever felt like playing the bad-guy in a video game.

If you have an Xbox Live Indie Game that you feel should be featured in an edition of the Indie Games Spotlight, please PM your suggestions to mancide.

When not enjoying video games, our fearless newshound enjoys an nice pint of fermented barley and hops in a variety of styles. India Pale Ales, Stouts, Porters, Witbiers, Saisons, Gose, Lambics, Barleywine, you name it. If it has water, malted barley, hops and yeast in it, I'll consume it. I also enjoy all things technological, Doctor Who, wrasslin, traveling, and spending time with my family.
