Breath of Death VII is an indie title released back in 2010 on the XBLIG service, where it and its compatriot "Cthulhu Saves the World" noticed decent to okay success. With its rerelease on Steam for a meager $2.99 with CStW it exploded, and how could I resist? So I plunged into the depths of this RPG knowing full well I was in for a 16-bit RPG...and boy does it satisfy.   Sort of.   Where the game shines is its humor, fast-paced and enjoyable combat, and music. The humorous aspect of this game ...

A short and Inexpenisve trip back in RPG time 0

(EDIT: 1/30/2013 - Changed Star Rating to reflect removal of half stars from the new Giant Bomb Site. Revise down to 2 stars from 2.5)Retro gaming and 80’s homages are not new or rare concepts in video gaming, but few take it as far as parody JRPG Breath of Death Vii does (and its’ companion sequel Cthulhu Saves the World). This bite sized throwback 8 bit-esque RPG comes at an extremely bite sized price to match.Gameplay and ControlsBreath of Death Vii appropriately controls very simply as you w...

One Word Review: Time-warp 0

Breath of Death VII transported me back to a time when I could push a button on my console and the game would start. There was a point during my playtime where I walked downstairs, at my Mom's house and grabbed a pop out of her fridge and returned to my game and I really felt like I had taken a jump back in time. This game brings back memories of renting games from the local video store. It reminds me of a time when I didn't think about getting laid 24/7. It reminds me of a time when JRPGs were ...

I'll Buy That For a Dollar! 0

BoDVIII is set in a world where war has killed off all the humans and left the planet populated with the undead. The hero is a skeleton named Dem (as in "dem bones," I assume) who doesn't speak, though we do get to hear his thoughts thanks to the narrator, and he is joined by a ghost, a vampire and a zombie on his quest. A quest that starts out with his pushy new ghost companion Sara wanting to explore some ruins and ends up turning into a mission to save the world!There are references to other ...

A fun throwback that gets too close to the tropes it lampoons. 0

The ShortPros- Entertaining JRPG parody that lampoons both the genre and other retro games- A solid JRPG in its own right, with an interesting and unique "escalating enemy strength" mechanic- Looks straight out of the NES era- Dialogue is entertaining and its story is wonderfully stupid- Music is decent, with a solid battle theme- Only $1 on Xbox Live IndiesCons- Only about three hours long- Random battles are frequent, and can get dull (except bosses)- Some of the dungeons seem unnecessarily lo...
