Product Description

Fight in turn-based multiplayer battles up to 9v9 with the old school graphics you've been missing!

Begin by journeying through any of the eight intense Trials, or play a friend in the free included Card Game, gaining gems and cards for use in The Arena. Then enter as a Warrior, Mage, Rogue, or Healer of either gender, and prepare for a turn-based multiplayer battle game like no other! Use gems to give yourself an element, and cast spells. Use cards to transform into any of 16 characters, combining their stats and abilties with your class's. Gain Charge during battle to do more damage, boost specific stats, and more; or just save your turns for later and pummel an enemy all at once-- all while chatting with the other players and audience, and jamming to a rockingly awesome soundtrack!

This game is absolutely terrible. The window for the game is tiny, even when zoomed in it's still small on a normal sized screen. There are very few people in the main server, and even if there are they don't join the arena so there's no way to even play the game. The combat is boring when a game actually starts.

I understand it's nostalgic for some, but to me it's a boring, pointless waste of time and energy.

But it's free. Try it out and find out for yourself.

I can understand BETA testing or a game that hasn't gotten enough of a following that a match is easy to find, but this is ridiculous. There is NO way this was ready to be released. The controls were awkward, slow, and unpolished. I don't even know what the actual gameplay was like - I was trying to get access to an arena first. The "trials" that grant such access highlight the poor controls.

And I get that 16-bit implies that we don't get modern graphics, but it is obviously not actually a 16-bit system being emulated. At the end of every trial, there's a portal. It looks like an old GIF image, and it's off-center, so my computer's higher-resolution pixels are poking out.

This game needs a LOT of work before it's ready to be in the general public.

The Palace was an old, old graphical chat program long ago that has since fallen from the face of the internet, yet now is still barely kept alive if at all. Psycrow, who is in one of the screenshots here, ran a type of 16-bit 'Colosseum' where you could pick characters from various square games and go head-to-head. I remember where you had to click a round Hit button at the right time to actually hit.

Eventually, donators could pay to have characters all to themselves. How frustrating.

That's what this is. He took the palace from his little arena and set it up here. Look up Palace Chat and Balamb Garden Colosseum to learn more. The palace chat is free to download, and if his area is still up, you don't even need to pay 10 bucks to play it.

I know all this because I used to play in it. It was fun for a while, but the community was made up of snotty s***s and was kind of toxic.

I'm sorry, but the few times I even tried logging into this confusing mess, there was no one else on any of their servers to play with or against or however that's supposed to work. So you're stuck wandering around a few lobbies full of nothing and... that's about it.

Didn't seem very interesting at first but I saw it being listed a free so I thought I would give it a shot. I downloaded, installed, and ran the games, but nothing was very well explained. Haven't touched it in almost 6 months.

The graphics were a mix of okay for the characters and terrible for the backgrounds. The mechanics were aggressively unfun, it was grindy, and the community was kind of rude too.

It did not download properly, and I never had a chance to play it. Please, contact me if there is a way to download it, and then I can also be given the option to change my review.

It was okay as far as gaming goes. It was not what I expected it to be, so I am going to look into it a bit more later on.
