"Battlepaths is a loot-centric and addictive 2D-RPG featuring neat monster hacking, an excellent loot system, and great variety in character development."

Short Comments:
- I chose these settings: Normal; Power; Babatula
- I mainly used a Logitech Rumble Gamepad F510 (sometimes I use the keyboard when I don't know which button on the gamepad to press).
- I like the music: classical guitar.

Inventory
- Oh my goodness, these pair of snakes were so annoying. I couldn't hit them with my weapons so I had to use three potions. I should also mention they killed me twice!
- I only used my special once after I got it, and the only time I used it was after I found out about it and decided to test it out. Press the shift key and choose a special. It'll go on cooldown.

I died. ;_;
First Impression:
While fun at first, the turn-based fighting system and loot-centric gameplay eventually loses its thrill. In addition, the 2D artwork has neither a retro nor modern feel. As such, for gathering loot and hacking my way through monsters with pleasing 3D graphics, I'd rather play the free-to-play online RPG Path of Exile (2013). With that being said, Path of Exile also has an intricate and complex skill system, which might be a negative factor for some.

Gotta love the out of combat healing factor.
Later I played a little bit more.

Short Comments:
- Resuming the game, I found the enemies had respawn. This would be useful for farming experience. In particular, it would seem necessary for the hardcore mode.
- Reducing the cooldown of the special power is useful.

Take this!
