Attention span: 6/10 It can get a little monotonous...
Controls: 10/10 Too simple: 2nd=yes, Alpha=back/no.
Implementation: 7/10 Cool game, RPG style, simple plot.
Overall: 8/10 Good average score! Go Justin!

Joltima is medium length RPG game for the 86. I'm not really a fan of RPG's so, Justin should feel a little special that I'm writing a review on something like this.

It's your basic RPG so nothing is really hard to figure out. There are 8 crystal shards hidden in 8 caves. Your job, of course, is to find all eight of the shards.

Basically, during battles, you either fight, use a potion or some type of healing item, or you can run for the battle like a coward. Like all RPG's, you start off inside a town, and you learn the plot. Train outside the town and gain a couple of levels before searching for the first cave because if you look around and get too far from a town without gaining some levels, you WILL die.

There are 4 people in your group: The knight, the ninja, the hunter, and the mage. (at least, that's what they look like.) The ninja will usually get the first attack, and then the night. After that, the enemy usually attacks. Then, the hunter and mage fight. Use the mage's power wisely, because she/he only has a few amount of shots. After that, she/he just attacks with his/her staff, which doesn't do much damage.

Make sure you go from the first to the second cave. I had a lot of trouble going in order. I ended up skipping from the fourth cave, to the eigth! I'm not sure if Justin included the locations in his Readme, but if he didn't, he might want to either put it in there, or put signs in front of each cave, specifying which cave it is. It would help out people like me, who can't get's lost after riding about 2 blocks down the street!!

All in all, Joltima is great. Make sure you talk to everyone in the towns and look for secrets like hidden boxes and people in the forests in and outside the towns. My favorite secret message is in Forestra. Check out Justin's other work at http://www.affinix.com . He's got his own business! Go Free Enterprise! He's got an awesome game he and his crew are working on for Gameboy Color. Hey, maybe he'll hit it big! Show some support, and I pray you collect all the shards for Joltima.
