Personal review

Un juego de rol por turnos sencillo y entretenido, una parodia viva del género.
Recomendable tanto como un primer acercamiento al combate por turnos como por su múltiples referencias y humor a otros juegos y obras de fantasía en general, además de un interesante toque absurdo/surrealista.

Official description

Grotesque Tactics* combines the features and clichés of Western and Asian console RPGs like Fire Emblem or Final Fantasy Tactics and provides a highly addicting and entertaining change to the current, more serious role playing games. The game is focused on providing the fascination of the Strategy RPG genre, but also weaves a humorous storyline and plenty of amusing dialogue, poking fun at some of the most successful RPGs, such as Oblivion, Final Fantasy and Lord of the Rings.

To protect the kingdom from the merciless cult "The Dark Church" which has murdered all of the kingdom’s heroes and knights, you will have to hire dubious soldiers and rescue jealous maidens who will follow you into combat as your groupies. Up to 10 heroes are deployed in tactical battles to take on the Dark Church with their mysterious special abilities.

* Turn based tactical battles with humorous animations not seen in any RPG
* Distinctive party members such as the arrogant Holy Avatar, the blood thirsty Vampire Solitaire, the sweet but hot-tempered Angel Angelina and many more
* Gorgeous village landscapes and dark, sinister dungeons
* Scantily dressed maidens to be freed from the grasp of merciless monsters
* Enormous, highly detailed and very angry end bosses
* Classical RPG elements: quests, treasures, trade, leveling up and out¬fitting a party of unique heroes
* Enjoyable multiple choice dialogues and conversation puzzles in the style of classic adventure games, such as Monkey Island or Maniac Mansion

*In chess, a Grotesque is a problem or endgame study which features a particularly unlikely initial position, especially one in which White fights with a very small force against a much larger black army. Grotesques are generally intended to be humorous.
