Good game when I'm bored
5 years later... this game is still amazing!
Since many people seemed to be interested in the game when it was released earlier, so I decided to TOFT. I like RPG type games and it looked interesting to try (being a programmer myself I was curious about a game with hackers as its topic). By now I finished the base game, so I can finally share my opinions.
No IAP at all!!
It did not really look like an RPG at first glance, but only because it has a very own system. It actually very much works well as an RPG. The game was made to fit one-handed gameplay and it was a pleasant surprise to find out you can switch between right and left handed modes (with the zoomer on the map). It is also easy to navigate between the menus, it is not complicated at all (you tap on your characters to check skills, health to use items and the menu to check cards, stats, reach options and save). One thing is, that the game has a save option. You can manually save (and you can actually have 2 games parallel), but there are some events, when the game saves by itself (when you get a card or finish an event).
I think the most important part of an RPG is its system. It's a bit similar, yet entirely different than usual RPG systems. You can have at most 4 characters, each with their own skills. You have health and energy points. If your opponent attacks you, you lose HP. If you use a skill, it costs energy. It worths to mention however, that health and energy is shared by your characters. In each turn, you can choose only one thing to do (use a skill of one of your characters, defend or use an item).
However there are some attacks, that affects only a character, not the entire party. So one of your character might get disconnected, so that you can't use his/her skills until reconnected. There are a couple of status effects and special skills, that adds a lot of strategy to the game, especially later.
You don't have XP, but you have ByteCredits (BC) and ResearchPoints (RP). BC is the ingame currency, and RP is a bit like skill points. You get a couple of RPs for battles and many BCs. You can buy skills, battle items, boosts and cards from BSc, and you can increase your skill levels from RPs.
The game has a very interesting card system. You get them from battles, events and you can also buy them. They give you buffs (more skill levels, more health and energy, more attack, etc). You can have a card at 4 levels: 25%, 50%, 75% and 100%. Each level gives you additional extra. You can try to upgrade your existing cards using BCs or RPs, or simply wait until you get a better one from battles. I found this card system very clever and unusual.
There is no map to wander, but still you can see a map with cities, available missions and events. You simply tap on it to select. Sometimes you get dialogues between your characters or events, sometimes you get battles. Actually there are many battles (they are mostly optional, but sometimes you need to do a bit of grinding to progress with the story) but as the game goes on, these become more and more strategic and hard.Q
The story might be a bit confusing at first (it is linear by the way), but the dialogues are fun to read and the characters are likeable. It is not too dramatic, but more of a parody with many reference jokes.
The game is quite long. It took me more than a week with a lot of gaming hours and even after beating the base game you get an extra to keep on playing. I still haven't finished that extra part. I easily have 10+ hours in it if not more.
It has a Japanese style graphics. The characters are well drawn. I don't really like the map's outlook however, but it actually fits the game well and is easy to overview. The enemies are also a bit strange looking, but the battles themselves look actually very fun (I mean, the background catches on fire just from hacking and there are even cannons! etc XD).
The game's best part is its system and the battles. It might be a bit monotonous at the beginning (it gets hard fast), but then becomes much more strategic. I don't regret TOFTing the game at all, I really had fun with it for a long time and I still have. Those who like RPG for their systems and numbers (lot of numbers ), will definitely love this one. Those, who love jokes or might be simply interested in hacking in a fun way, might also like this game.
Simple, yet enjoyable.
I am only about two hours into this game, but I have enjoyed it so far. Simple gameplay, a passable story, and an interface common to the iOS platform are both the positive and negative qualities of this game. While it may sound bad, these qualities are used in such a way that makes a quirky and accessible rpg that is easy to pick up and play, while still being interesting enough to keep playing.
