Avernum ist eines dieser Spiele, die auf den ersten Blick sehr primitiv und hingeschludert wirken – und teilweise mag das stimmen, dennoch gehört es zu den spaßigeren Indy-RPGs auf Steam, die ich bislang so gefunden habe.

In gewisser Weise ist Avernum ein Dungeon Crawler, allerdings keinesfalls in purer Form. Dazu läuft der Spieler dann doch etwas zu oft durch Städte und redet mit NPCs. Ich nenne es deshalb Dungeon Crawler, weil die Spielwelt an sich ein riesiges Verlies ist, dass sich in viele kleine Dungeon unterteilt.

Du erstellst dir eine eigene Gruppe, bestehend aus vier Mitgliedern (oldschool!) und erledigst allerlei Quests für die anderen Exilanten, die derweil in dieser unterirdischen Welt ihre eigenen Städte und Verbünde gründeten. Die Story ist hierbei aber ohnehin nur Vorwand für das Szenario, welches ganz klar der größere Fokus bei der Entwicklung war.

Das Kampfsystem ist rundenbasierend und erinnert stark an klassische RPGs wie Pool of Radiance. Strategische Tiefe hält sich dabei mit Würfelglück die Waage – soll heißen es gibt eine prozentuale Wahrscheinlichkeit bei der Treffer- und Schadensberechnung, die durch passende Ausrüstung und Stufenanstiege der Charaktere verbessert werden können.

Level-Ups kommen in angemessenem Maße, sie werden dem Spieler nicht nachgeschmissen, sind aber häufig genug, um die Motivation aufrecht zu halten. Der moderate Schwierigkeitsgrad ist ebenfalls ein Pluspunkt in Sachen Motivation. Jede Einstellung des Anspruchs ist direkt spürbar und schlägt sich schlicht in den Werten der Feinde nieder, nicht aber in deren eher zweckmäßiger KI.
Die Monster sind allgemein eher doof und lassen sich mit typischen Taktiken wie Engpässen oder Hit and Run locker überwinden.

Grafik und Sound... sind mit zweckmäßig hingegen noch SEHR wohlwollend beschrieben. Dadurch, dass alles unter Tage spielt, werdet ihr euch mit der Farbe grau anfreunden müssen. Das Design hätte deutlich mehr Farbe vertragen können und die Höhlen-Ausrede lasse ich da nicht durchgehen. Andere Dungeon-Crawler bekommen das schließlich auch hübscher hin. Immerhin gibt’s Lila-Korallenwälder.

Musik existiert außerhalb des Titelbildschirms übrigens nicht. Höchstens mal kleine Jingles. Soundeffekte sind vorhanden. Das ist alles was ich über den Ton sagen kann.

Fazit:

Ich hatte mit Avernum aus zwei Gründen meinen Spaß:

1. Die Spielwelt ist mit seinen vielen Tunneln und unterirdischen Gewässern ein Fest für Entdecker. Die Entwickler haben glücklicherweise dafür gesorgt, dass es auch viel zu entdecken gibt für mutige Wanderer.
2. Ich mag diese Art des Kampfsystems aus der Iso-Perspektive.

Wenn du dich in diesen Punkten wiederfindest, dann ist Avernum was für dich.

Es ist ein rundenbasiertes Rollenspiel in älterer Grafik, welches aber heutzutage immernoch gut unterhalten kann.
+ interessante Story mit guter Erzählweise
+ faires Kampfsystem mit einigen Möglichkeiten
+ Schwierigkeitsgrad ist überraschend ausgewogen
- Flächenzauber sind manchmal schwer zu zielen
- das Aufsammeln von Gegenständen ist unnötig schwer gestaltet
- es gibt ein Limit an Gold was man haben kann
Avernum: EFTP ist zwar ein recht lang gezogenes Spiel, aber wenn man sich an den älteren Stil gewöhnt, wird man mit einer schönen Reise belohnt.

Let's just get this first part out of the way, you're not really playing this game for the graphics. While it does have some nice pixel art, the animations are pretty terrible. But it has a decent story so far and the music and sound effects are nice. This is very much a classic party based CRPG experience.

I've played Exile 1-3 a lot, back in the day.
This is the first of the re-remakes that I've enjoyed.
If you liked the Exile games, well, these are an upgrade in just about all ways. It is so much fun to retread nostalgic areas and also face new challenges. This is not a walk in the park, even as a veteran of the series! :)

Avernum: Escape From the Pit clearly does not have the greatest graphics, but the storytelling is very immersive and the RPG aspects are interesting and challenging enough. The game has quite a few 'walls of text'. These 'walls of text' are not for everyone, but it adds a certain depth to the story that often cannot be conveyed by other means. In that sense imagination fills any void left by the low quality graphics. In hindsight class balance could have been slightly better, but it is not detrimental to the game in any way. The gameplay value is immense, so it can be great if you have a lot of time. At the same time, lots of points of interest need to be remembered (or written down) in order to not be forgotten for those who desire to explore close to everything, so this game does not lend itself well to longer playtime pauses.

Unbelievable remake of the first game, I enjoyed it very much. The game works similar to Geneforge so it was easy to pick up and play. You have control over a party instead of a single character, so leveling up was a bit more fun. Ended up doing all three endings.

The Avernum series is an isometric remake of one of the greatest classic PC RPG series ever, Exile. As with its previous incarnation, the incredibly strong writing and grasp of RPG mechanics retains its gold standard. The keystone of Spiderweb Software's repertoire, Avernum is testament to why Jeff Vogel is and forever will be regarded as an absolute legend among independent game developers. Although I still wait with fingers crossed that Exile will see a re-release one day, until then the Avernum titles do a fine job of conveying the spirit and soul of the original games.

I've tried really hard to like this and other Spiderweb Soft games over the years but every single time I put effort into it I'm constantly pushed out by novel game mechanics that are more often punishing than fun:

- Exploration is far too tedious.
- Overwhelming amount of empty space, useless items, trash NPCs that serve no purpose, lifeless quests, etc.
- Repetitious battle system. There's really nothing more you can do other than spam the same spells, buffs, debuffs, and attacks until everyone you can see is dead. I supposed that's every RPG in a nut shell but never before has it felt so boring as it does here.
- Too many enemies at any given time. Sure, more enemies means more challenge but when your available options for how to fight them is so limited, it just becomes a slog of attrition.
- For the love of all that's holy, I should not miss four 95% chance attacks in a row. The amount of times the game RNG rolls on less than 10% to miss is anything but random. I'm not a mathematician but good lord is it not fun to CONSTANTLY miss attacks. Watching my characters skip multiple turns in a row because they can't hit anything is infuriating.
- Complete lack of in-depth enemy stats. Perhaps I would want to know what I'm getting into before starting a fight I can't reasonably win.
- Leveling up is tedious and unsatisfying. The skill tree looks fun at first glance but moving to a place your character is halfway decent takes far too long and there are too many skills that are seemingly less 'good' than other skills.
- Having skills, abilities, and magic potency tied to in-game loot hunts or money sinks. Let me level up my dang character instead of forcing me to grind for gold to 'train' so my spells can be worth a crap.
- Not being able to see anything isn't a game breaker but it starts to wear on you the more you play. It's a QOL thing but the game isn't so interesting you can get past it.
- Pathing is frustrating more often than not.
- The only redeeming factor in a game like this is the writing but all the good parts of the story are buried under hundreds of lines of useless dialogue.

Ultimately this isn't my kind of game. If you enjoy it, that's good. I really want to enjoy it but I just don't get it.

Not a bad game. Not a great game. The systems behind it are decent.. but man, this game is ugly. The washed out colors and clashing art get hard to stomach after awhile. There's also not much for character building options, so battles start to get pretty repetitive. I got pretty bored after 12-ish hours.

you might like it. There are far better games out there then this. Very unbalanced game. I found that it was easy to just have your priest and mage go full int and spells and aoe the mobs down. have a soldier/ priest hybrid to buff and soak damage. Archery is garbage in this game, and since your going priest and wizard a backstabbing rouge isnt going to do anything so you need to have another soldier/priest or duel wielding dex/mage build just to summon monster to also tank damage for you. do that you are going to wipe the floor with any monster.

After 30 some hours, I think I think I'm officially uninstalling and escaping from the pit on my own terms. Sigh. The run-down:

Good points:
A large open world with a lot to explore. Interesting underground setting. Sandboxy in a generally good way.
Old school, but not unpleasant combat. D&D lite.
Not too punishing, save almost any time.
Some art by legendary artist Phil Foglio!
Name your own characters.

Not-so-good points:
It's...kind of ugly.
Character models are tiny! As I get older this makes a difference.
Quests are boring and scattershot. After 30 hours, I'd have to think hard to even determine what my major goals are.
NPCs are not memorable, and I don't feel invested in a story.
Loot is boring and mostly junk, and the perks you can level up are boring incremental increases for the most part.

Let me be clear, I enjoyed some of my time with Avernum, but there are so many more engaging indie RPGs out there these days, I felt like I was sort of wasting my time by taking it any further.

Underrated. Fucking Amazing.
I would not even know about this game if it wasn't for me playing EXILE III RUINED WORLD on my moms grey-cream looking PC when I was a child. It was amazing. I could customize 6 PCs eventually after a week of play figure out how to leave the fucking spawn castle to the overworld. And then my entire party repeatedly die until I figured out how magic worked. So fucking nostalgic.
I hope the next game or at least III allows non-human races. Was so fun. I'm enjoying myself a lot.

The fact that all the Spiderweb games are extremely similar is probably great for people who love them, but for me the mechanics aren't interesting enough to spend 30+ hours playing each of their dozens of games. The art is similar, combat is pretty much the same, the leveling varies slightly but is generally the same. If you like old school isometric RPGs you'd probably love it, but it's not for me.

I'm not generally the type of person who plays RPG games, however Avernum is a rare gem of a game in my opinion.

Ever since I was young, when I first came across a demo version of Avernum back when they used to include CDs with demo software/games in magazines, I've always loved playing this game.

The Avernum series, in my view, is one of the best turn based RPG game series out there.

I love the amount of quests this game has and how everything in the game is so well planned and well thought out.

Hours and hours of fun, also this game isn't that graphically demanding, it'll run on just about anything.

RPG comfort food, pure and simple. Nothing as mechanically intimidating as some other indie RPGs. Putting character builds together is easy, there's nothing stopping you from picking the game right up and diving in. It helps that its not as overly verbose as some other games in the CRPG genre, without cutting back on the interesting lore. Exploring the world of Avernum is a comfy experience.

31 Hours and I barely scratched what this game has to offer. Simple and deep tactical combat, rich lore and books worth of content to read through and learn about the world of Avernum. Graphics are spartan, and I like that. No music, so bring a podcast/playlist along and you're in for a treat. Make sure you save often and have someone who can deal AOE damage and you'll do just fine.

First time I played, it was the demo. I wanted to see what it was all about. I was initially intrigued, but didn't get very far before a few things bothered me, like the screen moving if I accidentally moved my mouse to any screen border. Turns out lots of games do this! I came into it with more experience in action rpgs than crpgs. I liked the idea of deeper story-telling, but turn-based combat reminded me of my old Dragon Warrior days from when I was a kid. I uninstalled and that was that. Until I started playing some other crpgs, remembered this, bought it to support Spiderweb, and now I love it. Strange how tastes can change. I try to read everything to immerse myself more fully. The combat is satisfying too. I now find myself hovering over bigger-budget titles in my steam library, but not opening them because really I want to play this.

I have been aware of the existence of Spiderweb games for a while. The games do not run on Linux native, but I took the plunge and played this using proton. No problems whatsoever.

As for the game itself, I will spare you the usual comments such as tired interface, graphics etc... In all honesty, the game is a labour of love. There is so much lore in the game, this little world is very believable. You don't have to spend 2 hours crossing the map, yet there is so much to do, you won't feel bored. I have a feeling that this is an 80-100 hours game in terms of content. One last thing, the ambient sound effects are really great.

My only gripe with this game is that it is difficult to gauge whether you are within shooting/casting distance, resulting in your squishies (mage, priest, archer) running up to the enemy instead of staying safely behind.

One of the most original and entertaining worlds an RPG was ever set in. The story was very deep and interesting, with many entertaining twists and turns. Combat felt very tactical too, and the modern refresh did wonders, albeit there were fairly few environmental tactics to be used. Some gameplay aspects still feel a little bit dated but meeting all the residents of the pit and the atmosphere more than make up for it.

Honestly if this game was just a graphical and UI updated version I would recommend this version but I find the older versions that you can get on GOG to be vastly superior. More customization for classes, and character creation. More strategy required and you can't just load your inventory with whatever you find, and basic mobs still drop loot, I was so dissapointed when my first bandits didn't drop any loot.

I am a huge fan of Spiderweb Software games!

People who love oldschool isometric CRPGs and don´t mind “simple” graphics will love this game.

Avernum: Escape From The Pit is the first instalment of the Avernum trilogy.

Like all Spiderweb Software games the story is deep and meaningful (prepare to read a lot), there are tons of side quests, encounters and dungeons. Decisions you make during your play will influence the ending of the game.

I needed more than 40 hours to explore the whole map!

I enjoy the turn-based combat. It is challenging (especially on higher difficulties) and “forces” you to use everything you have available (potions, scrolls, magic items, skills). No more hoarding items like other RPGs.

Avernum 1 remaster is a great game worthy of your time and attention if you like deep and story-rich crpgs. It's graphics and sound leave something to be desired, true, but crpgs are essentially about stories and choices, and this game has plenty of both. The combat and progression are simple to understand and use, and they offer a flexible way to develop your characters in any direction you like, whether you want a sword-wielding mage or a spellcasting warrior. Combine that with an open world where you can go in any direction you wish to explore, only to have your ass handed to you if you wander into a nasty encounter that does not scale to your pitiful level, and you have an excellent crpg that may keep you busy longer than many puddle-deep AAA titles. And guess what - there's two more Avernum remastered sequels waiting for you when you are done with this one, so that's awesome.

An absolutely perfect RPG for anyone looking for an interesting story, simple but meaningful combat and character customization and a clear UI that is easy to navigate. The world is large and interesting with hidden areas, useful loot, fun encounters and combat, and flavorful character progression that you can use to easily build the team you'd like.

Like most Spiderweb Software games, this is a true indie gem and a labor of love. I highly recommend playing the free demo if you are curious, or just buy the full game if this sounds like your bag of holding.

This is a Spiderweb Software game, and Spiderweb Software games are all about looking past the surface-level flaws to get to the good stuff at the game's core.

The graphics are basic, the sound design questionable, and the music non-existent. But with a bit of imagination, and guided by the high quality of writing, Avernum is a truly interesting and unique setting that's ripe for exploration.

Exploring the world can feel difficult, at times, due to the levelled world forcing you to poke around until you find somewhere level-appropriate. But once you do, the world's packed with random encounters, towns, dungeons, and so on, so that you'll always be rewarded for exploration.

Getting new loot isn't represented graphically at all, so the impact can often feel small. But the magical items in the game are well-designed to reward the player for obtaining them, be it powerful weapons, or items that let you open up new paths in the overworld and in dungeons.

There's few real opportunities for you to roleplay your characters, and no companion system beyond your starting party. But the characters you meet are well-written, and at times, provide some great comic relief.

Avernum is for players who want an old-school RPG, and are willing to accept the game's limitations.

Finished a hard playthrough, completing the three main end game quests. Avernum: Escape from the Pit is a modern remake of Avernum 1 which was itself a remake of Exile. It is an old-school, turned based dungeon crawler with up to a party of 4. I played with a party of Main Tank, Dual Wielder (DPS/off-tank), Priest (primary healer/buffer), Mage (caster with a side in Priest for alternate mass healing)

Pros:
A massive open world to explore.
Quite lengthy.
Very interesting game setting and story imo.
Pretty decent writing for describing NPCs and areas.
Can be quite challenging, with plenty of difficulty battles.

Cons:
Graphics are very dated.
Can be a pain to get started in the early game. While the world is massive, enemies stronger than you are basically can't dodge most of your attacks, do lots of damage to you, get first move and resist most of your damage that you actually manage to land (enemies have quite heavy resist in the game I found) so a lot of the early part of my game was stumbling around trying to figure out where to heck to go at my level. Acid and Lightning damage absolutely wrecks you early game.
There's no way to see enemy stats so you're kind of blind when attacking stuff as you have no idea what type of stats it has or even what level it is; this winds up with quicksaving, getting wrecked, quick loading a lot.
Quests are very simplistic, with no real moral choices. This is a dungeon crawler but would have been nice to have some more meaningful decisions.
Combat can get a little repetitive I guess.
Bit of a nitpick but pathfinding can be a little annoying. It can be difficult to move to certain squares due to the player sprites and characters can swap places with each other but only if you do this yourself so if they don't have a clear path to attack something or move to a place they'll try to take the long route (and potentially run into other enemies doing so).

Dungeons balance tends to be a tad random at times. Some have areas of increasing difficulty, while dungeon bosses can be far more difficulty than other content. Often you'll find yourself having to clear out parts of the dungeon that you can then go looking for other content to gain level before you can tackle the rest. Basically expect to do lots of quicksaving + loading as you explore and do dungeons.

Recommended assuming you can tolerate the 'old-school' graphics and slow turn based gameplay.

Disappointing. I liked the way the game felt, but the world was EXTREMELY bland. Every town, every NPC, every enemy felt the same. The towns had no mysteries, or conflicts or really any story or feature to differentiate one from another. This basic, utilitarian writing is understandable, being a faithful remake of the creators first game.

That being said, I thought I'd give Avernum 4 a go to see how Mr Vogel had developed as a writer and game designer. Afterall, I did like the way Escape From the Pit felt, and the snappy, though simple gameplay. But I couldn't even get past character creation. The mouse was so painfully slow I couldn't bear it. I know that there is a fix for this issue but I just can't be bothered figuring it out. There are so many much better crpgs to play.

This game is an absolute YES.
I was a little esceptic at first because i'm not a huge fan of turn based games on isometric (i prefer those that are from up to down). Because I played Exile 3 and Blades of Exile i had an idea of what to spect with this saga of games.
So even before playing a lot i can tell you:
The Lore is the best Lore i've ever played on a video game. Masterfully crafted and really inmersive. I never played the first Exile or the second, so this game is completly new to me.

Just a couple of minutes playing this game i can see a lot of new additions to the combat and spell mechanics.
From my experience i can 100% say: You can replay this game many times and never get tired. Once you finished the game, you'll desire to play it again with another aproach and other kind of characters (i write this with my experience of Blades of Exile from behind).

If you love turn based games, this one is a MUST HAVE. I wish this game were more popular because is an absolute jewel.

And i will say this anytime i could: if the developer read this review, please upload Blades of Exile to Steam, it's my favorite turn based game ever. The posibility of making your own adventures, opens a huge chance for the community to build great things. Pixel art games are well apreciated on the steam community.

Super fun and nostalgic. Nice character advancement and development system.
After my recent switch to Mac, I was worried about not finding decent games, but behold, the classics are still available.
Reminds me of playing DnD as a kid.

In 2021 this is still better than pretty much every game I've purchased in the last few years. I can't believe that one man, as low-key as he is, can write such incredibly alluring lore to such an in-depth underground world. I would rather read this guy's exposition than George R. R. Martin's. If one can look past the limited graphics, there is an amazing game underneath. The combat it challenging and fun. The character building is familiar and robust. The narrative has branching paths and the writing only gets better the deeper you get. Please give this game a chance if you liked the RPGs from when Bioware wasn't woke and lame, back when Baldur's Gate was capturing our hearts.
(This game lacks music, which some might not like, but it is incredibly easy to find fantasy themed lists on spotify)

If you played Exile: Escape from the Pit or it's sequels then this is a MUST BUY.

True to the vision of the original Exile series, Jeff Vogel's genius shines through this rework, and hits you with a powerful RPG world.

Are the graphics amazing? Nope. Are they perfect for the world? YES. If you like immersive RPG single player experience, this unique and fun RPG is more than worth the price.

It's not an easy game, so set it to casual or normal difficulty until you get levels and gear.

BUY IT!

This is so hard to word. If you want the nut shell then here it is. This is my favorite game ever. Now I don't care about graphics or cheap thrills. I only care how well the story pulls me in and the experience as a whole. For a long time my favorite games has been skyrim and then assassins creed primal for when and how they came into my life right when I needed them and changed my life for ever. I played the free demo to Avernum and went to jail. Long story yea but when I was in my cell I had a lot of time to think about what I played and how well it had been put together. It was just someone behind a computer pushing buttons but to me it was a perfect blend of adventure and dare I say poetry. I never experienced this blend and as soon as I got out of jail I bought every game and am still only on the first. This is finding actual treasure. It's like the time I was digging holes as a child and found chicken bones thinking I found dinosaurs (turns out in the 50s my dad killed every chicken on our farm and buried them in a mass grave where I was digging) but this time I actually found the real deal. If you question buying this just play the demo like I did. Imagine this. This is your life

You die at 80 and that little plus is a moment in time. We let so many moments go unchecked and don't mind. Most of our life go out the door as sleep and work. Its not big deal to live intentionaly for just a moment and try this game. You may love it or hate it but why not give it a try? If nothing else you are strengthening youre grey matter to try new things despite the self imposed oposition. My god I cant spell but it is my right to contribute a verse when I feel it in me.

I love this game! Great balance of story and action. No giant cut scenes grinding the gameplay to a halt, just great dialog choices. Freely exploring and uncovering the map is fulfilling and I love how you have the freedom to go anywhere, not just locked into a path from destination to destination. Your movement is fast and there are plenty of towns, so I never found travel tedious, or inventory management a problem. The dungeons are full of tough but fair battles, and great loot. It gets all the things I love about RPGs just right. Although I am not in a hurry to have this game end, I can't wait to try some of the others Spiderweb Software games.

Having played the original Exile when I was a kid, I was really excited to play the re-re-make Avernum.
It is better in every way to the original, and having just completed it I am looking forward to playing the many sequels.

Although it can get a bit repetitive at times, this game is great fun!

I am not young. I recently retired and have gobs of extra time to dump into my hobbies. I really only have one though.

I’ve spent years looking at this game from afar, never really giving it the time of day, thinking that it was just going to be a wall of text adventure, with tedious micromanaging of your party and with little excitement to be had. How wrong I was. This is a great game that fires on all cylinders. Just don’t expect triple A polish. That’s not what this game is about. Avernum: Escape from the Pit is about exploration and good old-fashioned D&D inspired adventure. This is old school for sure, but it is very approachable. The writing is topnotch and the setting is superb.

The lack of really any sort of a soundtrack does hurt the experience in the long run I think, but I was completely satisfied with listening to the lonely wind howling through the caverns and the forlorn drip from a distant stalactite for hours on end.

Just as a side note, I’ve been using the Steam controller to play this and it works great.

Spiderweb Software's games all share the same bones (and a lot of the same graphics assets) so if you like one you'll probably like them all. My first exposure was with Avadon: The Black Fortress. Compared to that, Avernum is a lot more open world, versus the clear storyline path of Avadon. Neither is better necessarily, it's just whatever you prefer at the time. My only real issue is that I had to fiddle with the resolution settings to get the graphics to look big enough for my older eyeballs. 1360x768 for my 1080p screen seems to be the sweet spot.

A remake of one of the greatest, not to mention one of the first, roleplaying video games to hit the PC market. This game should be part of any RPG enthusiast's game collection. A tremendously rich world, well written and creative beyond it's years. No doubt the influence of many RPGs that came after it.

Be wary though, it uses old school RPG difficulty and level mechanics so don't be dismayed if something whoops your ass while playing. Instead, when you run into that often too hard boss, record the locations, and leave the area and go explore for a while. You'll soon return to find you are now an even match for the enemy that gave you troubles.

24 hours (at the time of this review) is child's play in CRPG terms, and it's true that I haven't finished Avernum. Yet. However, I will report that those have been an extremely fun and comfy 24 hours and I would heartily recommend this game to any rpg fan. Behind the simple visuals and big text boxes lies an immersive interesting world and robust but approachable gameplay, as largely-scoped and open-ended as any larger-budget game of this type.

Developer Jeff Vogel has been in the indie rpg market for longer than many gamers have been alive, and while Avernum may not look sleek it bears the mark of a creator who has learned exactly what areas to refine for a specific audience... even if the UI isn't the sexiest, the sprites aren't the cleanest, the soundscape isn't the lushest, etc. There's an intangible sense of approachability to Avernum that makes it easy to pick up and easy to stick with, and it exceeds even some genre classics in this regard.

It might look like a relic but it's as engaging and fresh as any fancier rpg I've played, and I definitely recommend it.

This game ran smoothly for me on Linux using Proton with no tweaks.

This is a game for RPG fans who don't care about production values or anything - it's made by a very small, but reputable team so you aren't getting anything flashy, but you get a solid game that can get your monies worth.

I wouldn't say anything is spectacular (again it's not a AAA blockbuster type game), but I found it fun for the most part. I found the difficulty just fine for the most part - there's a clear progression in enemy types (i.e. goblins to Nephil to Nephar to Slith to things like various demons and strong monsters) so you can usually can tell if you are ready for the next area by how easy it is to face certain enemies.

That said, there were times where some foes felt annoying - particularly bosses. They never felt hard to me as much as they just seemed like simple bullet sponges. They were no threat as long as I had my protections up but it felt like it took needlessly long to kill them. Eventually I reached a point (max level, good equipment) where nothing was a threat - like the final quests or dragons. That said, I would rather the game get easy, but be quick than easy, but take forever (looking at you Divinity Original Sin 2...) or hard (though I'm not really a fan of hard games - at least at the end of a long journey when I'm ready to complete it.

I also found the game was a little too long in the sense that around 40ish hours was when things got easy, but there was still a lot to do for the ending quests which required annoying puzzles and a lot of running around the world (even if there was things like teleporation).

I wish I could enjoy this game. The lore is quite interesting, I love the world building and dialogues. The gameplay however is unfortunately quite frustrating. If a battle is hard, it's because you're not the right level, so come back a few level later and it will be easy, repeat. There's no real strategy involved, as soon as you're not the right level for a monster, there's little you can do. It often doesnt feel like a game but a chore that you suffer throught so you get to know the story.

The fact that there's no manual, no proper explanation of basic stats, and no list of spells/effects is unforgivable. If you're going to release a remake, at least include proper documentation of the game's basic mechanics.

Avernum is an old school RPG made in a time before the customs of modern gaming. There are many outdated ideas and customs that make no sense. For example, upgraded boots/shields/cloaks can be sold to a merchant, but basic ones can't. Also, there's a finite amount of items and enemies in the world. Once those items and enemies are gone they are gone for good and no new ones will appear, unless a new game is created.

These antique mechanics were common way back in the 90s when the original games were made. This one has updated graphics and minor changes, but is missing fundamental pieces. If you love old school RPGs then there is some challenge and fun here, though you have to work unreasonably hard for it. For everyone else, leave this to the history books.

A remake of a remake done quite well. The mechanics are simple, the quests are simple, but the turn-based combat is solid enough to carry it along. The world map exploration does a great job of making you feel like you are exploring a gigantic cave system. No real moral quandaries, just a simple RPG with a neat premise. Well worth the price of admission.
