Is It Any Good?
Take on the role of an evil mastermind and plan the defense of a dungeon from would-be hero marauders... sounds simple, doesn't it? But Legend of Keepers is so much more than that -- the game presents challenges in terms of managing your training, visiting a merchant for new spells or monsters, delving into the weaknesses of heroes and then planning spells, traps and combat-based defenders for battle. If you do it right, the heroes will be eliminated before they ever make it to the last room, where your final boss is waiting.
While the game mechanics are entertaining, Legend of Keepers isn't the most eye-catching of games. This is a turn-based, side-scrolling, two-dimensional games that can appear pixelated and ugly at times. There are some truly fun elements, like spending coin to get your employees therapy, so they can talk about their feelings. The core elements of the game don't vary much, but the actual challenge drives the game forward, and there are other story or non-combat elements that bring some distractions between the fighting. The loads of violence and blood makes this title for older gamers, and it'll find a nice spot in their libraries. Legend of Keepers proves with a quirky twist on the fantasy and adventure format that it can be fun to be bad, and surprisingly, quite profitable for your monsters.
