Quick Reference Guide to Retro AA & ARPG Games

by PresidentLeever Tue Jun 30, 2020 11:57 am

https://worldsunraveled.weebly.com/

If you checked the AA & ARPG games topic on the general board then you know what this is. I decided to make a separate site with a new name, and separate pages for each year for easier browsing (both for the viewer and for me when working on it) and so I could spice it up a bit visually.

This project started as complementary pages to my retro Platform Adventure/Metroidvania quick reference guide, where the original purpose was to briefly list top down and isometric view games based on their overlap with that genre, but it eventually grew into its own thing.

It covers 70s-90s games and divides them into three categories based on the (main) perspective used. Each entry lists some relevant info and links to a playthrough vid, a review and my own mini review, though obviously it's still a work in progress.

An example of a (mostly) finished yearly page at the moment:

Let me know if there's something you want mentioned about a certain game, a link to your review or if you have any other feedback.

Alright, finished some major updates for the 1986-1990 top down & iso pages:

Let's see if someone here can help me get rid of some of the question marks regarding stuff like save and map features for some of these. Otherwise I'll get to it as I play them.

I've updated the 1992-1998 FP & TP view (1st gen) pages and added YT playlist links for both main categories:

Latest update:
I added info and a mini review for Xak 1 (SNES), and some subcategories added for basically every entry so far.

Next up will probably be Silver.

Looks like there's not much interest in this one compared to the MV site, so thoughts on what I can improve would be appreciated.
