Since combat is the heart of the RPG, the extremely thin version on offer gives the game little traction. If there's much positive to say about Astonishia, it's that there are no barriers to entry. The simplified controls, which work with a very minimal interface, won't stymie anyone without RPG experience. But the absence of story and strategy will. This is a game best played on autopilot, if you have to play it at all.
