GIZORAMA - In an age of gorgeous graphics, digital transactions, and the all mysterious “Cloud”, it is nice to hearken back to the past. Recently, this “hearkening back” has been happening a lot, with just about every independent developer making their own version of a retro platformer. Avadon 2: The Corruption is a return to the classics, but in the form of a turn based RPG much like the original Fallout. While Spiderweb Games does not exactly do anything new, the world of Avadon and the “old-school” mechanics that it employs are nothing short of entertaining.
The story is filled with generic fantasy tropes, but it is pure escapist wonder. The land of Lynaeus is going through a civil war. Avadon has been weakened and rebels have emerged from the once strong kingdom. There isn’t a whole lot of completely new here, but it serves as a set up to drive gameplay. Multiple endings are possible, because it is up to you to decide who you will fight for.
