    Welcome to the 2nd issue of the GBAtemp Recommends Revival Project! This project is a weekly magazine feature where we share our favorite games and applications with you. The things we recommend may be "old school" titles, a Homebrew, a ROM hack, sleeper hits, an application, etc, but one thing's for certain, we think they are fantastic and deserve your attention!

    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Most of us will remember the classic "dungeon crawler" games that began popping up during the 80's, such as Megami Tensei and Phantasy Star. Many of these games are now considered classics, well-known and often released on many major consoles. Red Temple aims to be one such game.

    Though I'm not entirely sure what the game is based on, the theme behind it is simple. Each level (and there are quite a lot) is filled with obstacles, such as doors and walls, objects to interact with like keys and electrical circuits, things to pick up and collect and of course enemies to battle, each with their own unique characteristics. The game play is very similar throughout, and there is a shop to purchase items like health restoring food and weapon upgrades. There are eight in-game achievements, from completing story mode to collecting all characters. None of these are easy to obtain, but they provide a fun challenge for anyone who is playing the game. Each playable character has different stats and of course there is the hard-to-get super character with very high stats.

    Red Temple is a brilliant play for anyone who wishes to play a simple game. It isn't easy, and so provides hours on hours of fun.

    I discover this game with the Homebrew bounty.

    I was amazed by the amount of things you could do, playing with this game few minutes you see that the developer spent a LOT of time on it.
    There are many items, many unclockables (like trophies!), a lot of quests, a shop, multiple characters, very long tutorials with step by step lessons for each element in the game.

    I couldn't play it very long though, I find it very difficult x__x
    All enemies are moving and attacking you in real time, it requires a lot of dexterity and alertness to play and complete the levels. (It feels like I'm old now).

    You should try it if you like homebrew.
    At least to see how much effort he put in developing this game :)
