Video games have certainly come a long way and this hilarious RPG demonstrates just how far things have changed. It presents the classic story of a dragon knight entrusted to save his world, but goes on to tell his tale using different RPG types across the decades!

It starts with a 2D side-scroller before a treasure chest instantly puts you in a larger, free-moving map. Discover more treasure chests in the area and pick up other items that evolve the game. From “Turn-Based Battles” to “3D Sprites,” the whole world keeps on transforming as the story progresses.

One moment, you could be dodging traps and bosses like old-school adventure games and in the next moment, you are facing off a squad of enemies alongside a party of friends! It even makes parody references to certain RPGs along the way! It is both an entertaining an educational experience for all video game history buffs.

▲ The story begins in the memorable style of sprite-based action adventure.

▲ Open special treasure chests to transform the game and incorporate new graphics and gameplay!

Halloween without candy?! That is like a fish without water! One plucky hero feels the same, and now that an evil mansion has stolen all the spooky sweets, it is up to him and his trusty sword to save Halloween once and for all!

Tap and hold on an empty area to move in that direction, and swipe from the hero to anywhere else on the screen to draw a guideline that slashes all enemies in its path! Every smack from an opponent or dangerous obstacle brings down your health, which is found to the top-right. Collect hearts throughout each level to bring it back up again!

▲ Enemies drop candy when defeated, simply move into it to add it to your stash on the top-left!

▲ Tap the bottom-right backpack button at any time and choose a costume part to equip it – where it is equipped is shown by its icon.

▲ Chatting with the characters located on the main screen lets you purchase stat upgrades using sweets, as well as diamonds, and more.

Treasure chests scattered around the mansion each contain one of 102 different costume parts that give you different boosts when you wear them. You can also mix and match costume parts, from the Frankenstein mask that ups your weapon skills to the bear suit that increases your speed!

Moving into the yellow portal from the home area teleports you to “Infinite Mode,” where your survival skills are put to the test as you go up against endless waves of enemies. Lasting long enough just might help you to make your way up the global leader board as you indulge your sweet tooth, battle bad bosses and menacing monsters, and take back Halloween!
