Rating Summary:

This is a role-playing game (RPG) in which players attempt to save the medieval kingdom of Boletaria from demons. Players manage a number of stats (e.g., strength, endurance, intelligence) and inventory items while battling humans, animals, and supernatural enemies. Players use melee weapons (swords and axes), bows for ranged attacks, and magical spells to kill an assortment of enemies (e.g., human soldiers, dogs and rats, giant insects, demons). Attacks usually result in large clouds of dark red blood; blood appears splattered on walls, floors, and around corpses in several environments. During one boss battle, blood continually spurts out of the wound of a demon's stomach and covers a large portion of the floor.
