Rating Summary
This is a strategy role-playing game in which players assume the role of mythical characters battling an ancient race of stone warriors. From a 3/4-overhead perspective, players can position characters around a grid-based area to fight enemies in turn-based combat. Players use swords, axes, bows, and magic attacks to defeat enemies. Combat is accompanied by cries of pain and sword-slashing effects. Some attacks result in small blood-splatter effects and dismemberment of characters' limbs; small pools of blood sometimes appear under defeated characters. The game includes text-based sequences involving alcohol;players select various options to advance the narrative (e.g., “Your insistence that the clansmen stay sober does not go over well,” and “It's Rafnsvartr, the unabashed drunk, staggering toward you, looking not entirely sober.”). The words “b*tch,” “a*s,” and “bastard” appear in the game.
