Sylia - Act 1
This is a great game that features unusual heroes instead of the old tired formula of mages and warriors. You get plenty of action and twists, too, and a lot of value for your dollar. Sylia is recommended for anyone who wants a good adventure.

Great game; nice content & story
I don't know where to start... I really enjoyed the story, as well as having so many, lovely characters !
Since I don't want to spoil anything, I'll just say this : If you enjoyed playing to SNES or Genesis RPG, then you'll definitely enjoyed this game !!
It haves everything you may expect for a RPG, as well as hours & hours of fun, having so many things to accomplish... And the game can be quite challenging !
This is certainly one of my favorites games on this website... And I can't wait for Sylia - Act 2 !!

Great game with a fun plot and a good length, you want to know more and ask Bigfish where is Act II. Hopefully it's in the plans.

Beautiful game with a plot that's pretty surprising in itself and a level of challenge that is perfect (in normal mode... can be adjusted), great game for people who like to think and reveal a fantastic story at the same time.

A piece of true genius
There are so many great features in Sylia that I don't know how to start...
1) the storyline! I played a lot of RPGs, but I never found something even slightly similar to Sylia.
2) the RPG experience is fantastic and very different from most similar games. You will play TRULY unusual characters, each one with interesting individual spells or skills.
3) huge world to explore
4) great background music
So if you like RPG or you are looking for something different, try Sylia :-)
Warning! This is Sylia Part 1. To complete the game you will wait the release of Part 2.

Funny game with an unusual plot
When did you last play a game where the main protagonist is a cat?
Sylia might seem to be a "regular" RPG at first sight, but this time it's a collaborative project of Aldorlea and Ensorcelled and it shows. There are a few twists you wouldn't expect - the story and crew being one of them.
Otherwise, it's a classical stuff for anyone who knows other similar games, such as Laxius Force or Millennium - huge dungeons, many secrets, relics, artifacts and plenty of fights.
And for $2.99, it's a steal, especially considering the length, which easily exceeds 30 hours.

Definitely different, in a good way.
I've played the demo, I didn't read the reviews previously but I'm glad I didn't because then I wouldn't have had the 'What the heck' moment about ten mins in.
Originally (previous to those aforementioned 10 mins) I thought this would not be my cup of tea, aliens are not something I want in my RPG's. But yes, you have to give it a shot.
I haven't bought it yet, but I will.
So far, I love the storyline (the naming the characters in particular!), the maps are wonderful! Instead of only being able to go to one of two places at the beginning you have this vast space (some areas are blocked off of course) which you just wander! And an actual map!! So you have a rough idea where you're going! Not very useful for me on the demo, but I presume would be great in the full version. The enemies are visble and also sometimes avoidable so no nasty shocks when you LP is low! You level up quite nicely with the game and so far so good.
What my one negative is (to bring it to 4 stars) is the areas (towns & mazes). It is quite easy to go the wrong way, get to a dead end, have to go all the way back again or find your self exactly where you started! When the demo ended I was in the middle of a maze trying to figure out how to get to the other side (if you read that as a chicken joke it might just be funny...) but I was a bit stumped. Due to this, I'll put of spending this months credit on the game and get it next month, when I can't remember where I have and haven't been, so to start it afresh.

Really did not like this.
I think it started with the bad graphics.
But then I tried to keep an open mind but just didn't have any fun playing this.
It sounded interesting from the description, but ultimately it wasn't good.
