I’m thinking in writing a review, so I decided I would post before-hand a list with all game aspects which I can include…
so if I forgot anything please add.
1- Recovery points are NOT permanent.
Unlike most KEMCO games, well, the ones which features a recovery point at least, here the recovery point will vanish once you use it.
This mean you might want to think twice before using it.
2- Absence of monster HP bars
You can just check on the screenshots, but monsters does not display their HP to you. So you might decide to heal your whole party when the monster is 1 hit from dying.
3- No free healing
Except for the recovery points before boss battles to save you a trip to the Inn, and one or other point of courtesy, the game won’t heal your party for free. So don’t finish a boss fight and expect to receive a healing on the dialog — no, you must pay the inn.
In fact, you won’t even receive a free healing when leveling up. So be prepared to use the Inn.
4- Character weapons will always change
Unless, of course, you want a hard time, each monster is vulnerable to a certain kind of weapon and regardless of character specialization, you must from times to times equip accordingly to what you’re going to face.
Think of it like “elemental weakness”. Instead of elements, it uses weapons instead.
5- Enemy Guide is not really useful
Unless i missed a button in which case by all means reply here as somebody else might miss it too, Enemy guide only shows you the image and name of the enemy.
6- Skills are granted by Bits
Like Fairy Elements, your skills depends on the Bits attached to the weapon. Each bit usually have only 1 skill, active or passive. You have a limited amount of slots to add bits.
7- Saving is not so fast
If you’re of the kind which save often, like, after every random encounter, you might be annoyed in the amount of taps required to save the game.
8- Grinding is not so fast
Well, if you want to fight your first boss on level 2 (because it’s nice!), you’ll need to do more than exploring the whole first dungeon and collecting all treasure. You’ll find the need to walk in circles only for random encounters if you want to complete the level-up before the boss fight.
9- You can auto battle
You can press the auto button for the battles. It works and often there’s nothing to worry (unless if your HP is getting low, then there’s something to worry!)
AFAIK you cannot change auto tactics though. I believe it’ll always attack and… that’s it.
10- No formation
AFAIK there’s no battle formation where you need to worry about moving a character from place or killing an enemy which looks to be closer to you first.
I will add more things to this list later. 🙂
So fell free to add your opinion or write about things I forgot on reply 😉February 1, 2017 at 6:51 am #18506
In End of Aspiration, recovery points also disappear – but if you leave the screen and come, they respawn. Does that not happen in Aeon Avenger?

It re-appears when travelling on World Map. I did not knew that. Thanks for the tip.December 12, 2018 at 4:27 am #32122
I gave the game whatever patience I had available, borrowed some from a few “friends” of mine, (I should remember to pay them back eventually) put the patience on a bank for many months to get even more of it, and finally gave the game YET ANOTHER go.
I let the Walkthrough guide me to minimize my pain on this game and just enjoy the story. (I’m not masochist, you know.) I also let age do its job of making people more mature and capable to write more solid reviews.
Well, the results of that can be seen on game page.
Now, I need more than just any amount of patience to keep playing the game.
Good bye, Aeon Avenger. Welcome, 25 MB of space! I’ll use you well, on another Kemco game probably.December 12, 2018 at 4:33 am #32123
Holy cow I think you win the award for most time between wanting to write a review… to writing the review. 😆
(But at least it’s a well-written review!) And honestly, there’s not a lot in there I could argue with. I think it’s one of those that either you find some aspect of it charming, and therefore disregard all of the numerous cons… or all of the numerous cons are just too much and it goes by the wayside.

Is there a way to switch characters?July 17, 2021 at 12:47 am #40837
Is there a way to switch characters? Like switch out Law for Shin.
