Recettear: An Item Shop's Tale Review by Insanity Prevails

Seventeenth round took place between Christmas and New Years Eve, though not everyone was busy as Insanity Prevails had multiple reviews in the running, with his one for Recettear: An Item Shop's Tale getting the clear win. Using an interesting combination of shop management and dungeon crawling, the indie title has a lot of fun on offer. In fact, he doesn't really have any complaints, and neither will you unless you're not fond of proper difficulty settings.

 Recettear: An Item Shop's Tale     Score: 4.7/5
 Genre: Fantasy RPG

 Recettear is a wonderful shop management slash dungeon crawler game that brings about a rare experience that I think anyone would just love, and with a low price attached to it then it is easy to go ahead and have some fun.

This is my review of Recettear. It is a rather unique and awesome game. Go buy it now. End.

Well, I suppose I should explain things a bit better, but my abruptness should go some way to expressing the sheer love I have for this game. There truely are very few games quite like this, and fewer still done with the kind of addictive quality that demands you to play one more day. A shining example of what indepedent developers can pull off.

So then, what is Recettear? It is primarily a shop management game that reverses the usual RPG roles. This time you are the shop keeper happily ripping off adventurers risking their lives to venture into the most dangerous of dungeons. The game also throws in dungeon crawling areas that can help you in your playthrough. About the only comparison I can make is to Natsume's Harvest Moon Rune Factory games, but done so much better.
