User Review Information
it should be closer to Spellcaster we knowReviewed By: knkn on 24 Oct 2021
some things could be different but there are some problems:
1 - name of main character makes no sense, because Peacock King - it is God from legend, and according to the manga, hero and his sister is reincarnations of two gods fighting each other. I can understand why demons call hero a Peacock, but he is “usual japanese schoolboy” and he has usual name to call himself. Also he has spell “Peacock give me gift of flight” - it looks like he asks himself.
2 - It is sci-fi story about modern schoolboy, who was trained as medieval monk, he knows about japanese legends and deamons, BUT plot twist is ancient monsters are products of futuristic technologies - Iwato family wants to revive Serpent God - it is futuristic energy cannon of spaceship, it has shape of 8-headed snake - that’s why it is called Serpent God, BUT here it was translated as “Oogane from semacharu” - it makes no sense.
3 - And it is my taste only: i’m against corrupting the title screen, because it was piece of art-design, and i’d like to see names before text people say, to understand who is talking - just like was at Spellcaster on sega master system
4 - does it have bugs? after guy from Iwato family gave me Orb, my stats were maxed, so i’m too stong to die - it should be balanced
Version 1.1 Recommended - Yes
