Groupees are hard at work with constantly providing a lot of content for a minimum price while remaining true to their build-a-bundle and thematic-connections formulas. This time, with Adventure Role Playing Groupee, it’s time for some classic point-and-click adventures, more action-heavy or weird adventure games and RPGs.
Adventuring and slaying monsters in a violent and non-violent way
The current compilation includes aquatic survival arcade-swimmer They Breathe, humorous comic adventures Ben There, Dan That!, Time Gentlemen Please!, customisable 3D adventure-RPG Vox, sidescrolling fantasy action/RPG-platformer Aztaka, unique 3D-adventure with a camera-shooting mechanic Reef Shot, violent vikings action-adventure Rune and strategic travelling hidden-object adventure game Pickers.
Additionally unlocked (at the time of writing) are the classic fantasy RPG (in the vein of Final Fantasy) Laxius Force I and space western first-person action-RPG Exoplanet: First Contact while the OSTs of Rune and Aztaka are included as well.
Back to the past and present future opinions
I already had the pleasure of playing Rune when it was released and despite its age, it’s still an impressively brutal and good-looking title. They Breathe has already been covered in the Indie Royale Winter Bundle article and except for its rather harsh difficulty curve it’s a unique gaming experience with some pretty creepy soundtrack and an overall strange atmosphere. The Ben and Dan adventure games are without a doubt crude-looking and the humor is not for everyone, but I very much enjoyed playing these when it was released, especially with all the references to classic LucasArts (R.I.P.) games. And every game featuring Dinosaurs with nazis and time travel is a winner regardless of the gameplay. The other games are also imaginative and feature nice-looking visuals and audio, so one can’t go wrong getting all of these anyway.
As with most Groupee bundles, the price depends on how many games one wants to add to the basket, but starting with 1 dollar and seldom being more than 5, the bundle still remains a great bargain, not to mention all of the extras which can be unlocked after a certain number of sales are reached.
Giveaways for the first four people who’re up for a short quiz
