Pokemon - Septo Conquest

Hack of Pokémon: FireRed Version

Description:

Pokemon Septo Conquest is our debut game. In essence it’s to show that ANYONE can make a good ROM-Hack if they work hard enough on it. Because we’re actually friends in real life and not just online it’s given us a huge advantage to make Septo Conquest, which we’ve been working on since last autumn. The hacking isn’t the BEST, scripting could be better, but we feel as if we’ve got a good, funny and enjoyable game.

THE SEPTO REGION The region of Septo is divided into seven main islands, with a smaller mini-island to the west. Here’s a short description of each:

  • 1st Island: The island you begin the game in. It’s a forestry island with lots of twisting mazes.
  • 2nd Island: This is a muddy barren island with only one town. Lots of rocks and caves.
  • 3rd Island: It’s a tropical beach island. It’s the smallest of the main seven islands.
  • 4th Island: This island is mostly made up of open fields. Has many thugs running about.
  • 5th Island: A very misty island where visibility is really low.
  • 6th Island: This is the biggest of the main seven islands. It’s constantly raining and several places are flooded.
  • 7th Island: Made up of mountains and is very sunny. Lots of hikers around.

The mini-island can only be accessed after completing all seven islands. The final bosses are on this little island.

THE STORY One year ago, the King of Septo was assassinated and his kingdom was stolen from him by two people known as The Dictators. Prof. Oak, who was working as the King’s chief researcher, managed to rescue the King’s only child and took him/her to his hometown of Faris Town. Now living with an alcoholic foster mother, you, the only child to the King and the true heir to the throne of the Septo Region, must take the region back. After Oak gives you a Pokemon, you start your very own quest. The objective is to overthrow the seven Barons (minions of the Dictators), each of who rule one island. By doing that, you’ll be able to conquer that island and get closer to the showdown with the two Dictators.

However, there is more to it. You will also be fighting two evil teams: Team Vine and Team Solar. Team Vine are a bunch of eco-warriors who fight the save nature, but in bad ways, and Team Solar are an organization of criminals who steal, pillage and kidnap people and Pokemon alike.

NOTABLE FEATURES

  • 3 Starters: Machop, Drowzee and Skarmory.
  • A host of new characters, including the player, the 7 Barons, a Pokemon thief named Cookman and much more!
  • A few old characters from the original games return in new roles: Oak, who was the King’s chief researcher, Lance, who becomes an ally and gives you many free items throughout the game, Brenden and May, who were kidnapped from Hoenn by Team Solar and brought to Septo, Bill, who is now an evil scientist who likes to clone people. Also Brock serves as a boss early on in the game, as he is now homeless after being kicked out of Kanto and seeks to battle many skilled trainers in order to get his old gym leader position reinstated.
  • A whole new region to explore.
  • Lots and lots of humour - very good dialogue to keep

people entertained.

  • All 386 Pokemon from the advance games.
  • No Pokemon Gym Challenge. Instead it’s fighting the Barons.

Interesting concept, poor execution

Reviewed By: Sparkbomber on 31 Mar 2014

I’ll keep this short. Using a Pokemon game as a basis for an rpg might be fun. Heck, with a little effort it can be a blast to play. Sadly enough that is not the case with PKMN Septo Conquest v3.1 .

Enormous plotholes, abysmal dialogue, intense graphical glitches and basically lacking any sense (particularly of balance in a game) it is difficult to credit the makers for all the time they claim to have put into it.

To illustrate, dialogue for professor Oak mainly consists of stereotypical gangsta-slang that grates instantly. On top of that most dialogue features randomly misplaced symbols and letters.

The balance is not to be found, you either pick the right starter or you get your behind handed to you.

One point in favor of this hack is the design of the world. Towns are like a maze, but at least they are eye-pleasing.

So in conclusion I would say that unless the team goes puts in a lot more effort to bring it up to snuff, this is one hack you should avoid like the plague.
