“Distills the humorous melodrama and razor-sharp wit from Rain-Slick’s 3D entries, and then fuses it with stellar Super NES-era pixel art, all without losing an atom of the sharp wit, detailed Lovecraft-ian lore, and goofy melodrama that make the series special.”
“In the process of mimicking the past, Penny Arcade evolves beyond its own history to earn a newer, better RPG identity.”
“The third episode of Penny Arcade Adventures looks and plays different than its predecessors, and the new direction is one worth rallying behind. ..the smarter combat and more elaborate encounters keep battles entertaining while the witty, long-form comedy keeps the overly dramatic story light and fun. Unless you're allergic to nostalgia, there's no reason not to play Rain-Slick.”
The terrific sense of humor and retro stylings work together well.
Awesome, highly-detailed pixel art creates a cool world.
Simple though it starts, the complex combat stays interesting, challenging, and surprising throughout.

“The classes themselves are all brilliantly designed, some exhibiting a witty reimagining of classic archetypes, while others throw archetypes away entirely in favor of completely new ideas.”
“Combat gleam(s) with forward-thinking design, streamlining certain archaic aspects of RPGs to keep things fast-paced and fun.”
“The humor and terrific class system make it a great choice for fans of Penny Arcade and classic RPGs alike.”
