Loren The Amazon Princess Demo
JRPGs are quite different from western RPGs, starting from the way the story is told and how the characters evolve, all the way to the combat system, gameplay mechanics and even the dialogue system. Thus, while games like Final Fantasy might feature turn-based combat sequences, titles like Baldur’s Gate let you approach the confrontation in real-time, although it is also possible to pause the action at any point and issue new orders.
Loren the Amazon needs your help
Loren The Amazon Princess is a role-playing game that takes a lot of inspiration from oriental RPGs and tells the story of a young Amazonian princess, who loses her mother and goes on a quest to save her. However, your role is to be her companion along the way, rather than the main character, which is nice to see and quite the interesting idea to see implemented in a video game for a change.
You can choose from a variety of personalities and backgrounds, as well as whether you want to be a male or a female at the beginning of the adventure. Your hero can gain new abilities over the course of the story and use them in battle, since there are plenty of unsavory creatures waiting for you and Loren along the way, including demons, thugs and wizards.
Gather items and find your true love
As you keep on looting corpses and searching treasure chests, you can find a variety of weapons, armor pieces and various other valuable items that can be of use in your journey. On the other hand, they can also be sold in exchange for gold, which is perfect if you ever need cash to acquire potions, powerful artifacts or various other items you find interesting.
Items are not the only things that you may stumble upon, since the creators put a lot of effort into integrating a pretty complex love component. Thus, you can meet around two dozen different partners throughout the campaign, all of which can prove to be the perfect choice for your character. Naturally, you can only choose one and the story evolves depending on your decisions.
A casual JRPG for lazy afternoons
In the end, Loren The Amazon Prince is quite simplistic and not very original, but it does hold a lot of content and it can be difficult to put down once you get lured in by the gameplay. However, the characters are in no way memorable, the story is just a bunch of cliches on top of each other and the combat is way too simple and repetitive to keep you interested for too long.
