The character design is a great example of game development. It is nice to see game developers try different things such as stock art, original illustrations, and even doing fancy character design. The background artwork is detailed and beautiful. The music is bouncy and fitting to the game's general atmosphere. The writing is witty and funny, even if it is a little too comical in places. Eastward is a game that will appeal to your sense of humor.
It is an excellent example of game development that seeks to create memorable characters and stories. It is a game that mixes many genres and includes a bit of everything from classic games. This game will appeal to gamers of all ages and backgrounds. I strongly recommend it as an entertaining game to play.
The basic structure of the game is the same as other retro games from Square Enix and Nintendo: a basic setup, an ending, and a few things to collect along the way. The various parts of the game are pieced together by the story's epic conclusion, which is in turn justified by the first time you play an ending stage. There is the usual setup that creates a character and puts them on a journey with a cast of characters. There is an ending with a conclusion that leads into the game's main story. There are also numerous stops along the way to collect items, which are kept for the final mission.
The characters can be met again in other locations, leading into another story. Some of these characters may get their own storylines down the road, but for now I can't say anything more. You'll have to play to find out. I enjoyed this game for its humor and its many story elements, but the characters were the biggest highlight of the game for me.
Each main book is divided into multiple chapters and each chapter is divided into multiple verses. Whether you have been reading the Bible for years, or have never picked up a Bible before, you can get the enjoyment of a game without having to leave your couch.
