[1.1] About Icarus

Icarus: Sanctuary of the Gods is an RPG game for the PC. As I like RPG games, I
bought this game and give it a try.

There are up to 8 characters to control with also lots of magics and special
attacks can be used.

The graphics and musics may not be as good as other games but the storyline is
really nice and interesting.

[1.3] Patches

Before you continue playing the game, it is recommended if you download a patch
for this game at http://www.game-club.com/icarus/

This patch fixes Stage 19 and other bugs and changes the game to version 1.3.
Also, this allows you to use cheats. Cool, huh?

[1.5] Review

I caught my eye on this game as the game stated, ''Very different feeling for
strategy RPG'' and I spend my money on it, thinking it will be a good change
after playing Worms 2 and other strategy-based RPG for a long time. At least,
all RPGs I played before are definitely good and last for a long time though
some RPGs such as Final Fantasy Mystic Quest and is two times better than
Icarus: Sanctuary of the Gods. The title itself sounds incredibly stressed out.
The developer wanted to make the game looks cool and sophisticated but ends up
making the RPG terrible.

Graphics - 7

Despite all the hype that it has fantastic 3D modeling and realistic graphics,
it don't have the real feel to it, whether 'cartoony', realistic, plain-looking
or not. Not to mention that it does not have nice graphics though I guess they
just fit into a game like this. Lightning, smoke, fire, water and all other
elements in this game looks perfectly stupid. The so-called detailed characters
are not true at all as they look horrible. The enemies just look quite like
mud-ghost haunting around the dungeons, not even realistic as this game had
bragged about.

The background itself did not even enhance anything towards the graphics but
make the game even worst. I don't know whether the developers are just too lazy
to create beautiful graphics or just plain lazy. Just to say that I'm not
criticizing, this game could be one of the best RPG if the developers are more
concern and take more initiative to upgrade Icarus to a better game.

The FMV sequences are certainly better than the graphics in the game but sadly
enough, there are only two or three such cut-scenes that you can see. One at
the beginning and one at the end when you finished the game. I just prefer the
FMV sequences most of all but still, they could be much better and can be
improved. The characters themselves look odd with odd names.

Music - 8

The background music that is played throughout the game is definitely original.
They're pleasant to hear and most music comes through in the right time and
right situations. The sound effects are not really that great but just nice for
this game. Example, the sound of lightning doesn't really sound very real but
at least, they add something to Icarus.

Gameplay - 7

An original feature in this game is to have a new type of system, Class Up and
the usual one, Level Up. The levels will have some sort of relation to the
Class Up system because certain classes that your characters will obtain are
based on the levels that you are now. Although that is a nice feature, this
game can be your worst and hardest game you've ever played.

You need to think and spend you money wisely because the only way to defeat
enemies and bosses are to have the right equipment, shields, accessories and
other stuffs, other than having a high level. Let say if you have spent all
your money buying items but less on weapons, you're 100% risked that you will
lose in a battle because the more powerful your weapons are, the better chance
and faster you'll win a battle.

Every battle you're engaged in, it will be noted (well, all battles here must
be entered, no secret battles or such) and there are more than 50 such battles.
Even the battle system is quite original and unpopular as most RPGers may never
heard of it before. This battle system will have square boxes around the whole
area and you can be in dungeon, forests, city and all sorts of places. The
treasure boxes which contain important items and weapons will be in the battle
instead of outside of the battle.

The magic system uses MP (Magic Power) which usually consists of lightning
attacks, fire, water and the rest. Some magic have 'summon-type' from Final
Fantasy VII which calls the demon from hell, king of lightning and etc. to come
and join the battle with you (the person that you have called are controlled by
the computer. You can also expect healing powers later on by one of the
characters, Lydia. Now, the special attack will use your HP (Health Points) and
you have to be careful using it or end up easily killed. The special attacks
are certain much more powerful than magic so use them when you are in tight

Other than that, you're mostly in battles, battles and more battles. You'll
fight with pirates, human, soldiers, archers, gnomes, monsters and when the
whole game is focused only on battles, you will see how boring it is.

Story - 8

The story is about Dreus, the main character to avenge against his closest
friend's death, Guile after Colias, a wizard killed him and destroyed the
Coshark Mercenary (what a name!). Helena, his fiancée, together with his other
friends joined the Mercenary and promised to rebuild it. This story is mostly
about tragedy and it's a pretty exciting story line.

Replay Value - 5

What replay value? This game is so terrible that I would dearly give it a 1 and
the replay value is certainly out of the game. As the game is difficult, added
with astonishingly dumb graphics, you won't spend your time replaying all over
again a game like this, provided it has special features that will keep you
tuning over.

Overall - 6

As we approach to more advanced year and new millenium, you can certainly
consider this game worthless to buy as super-advanced graphics truly beat this
game a hundred times. You better spend your money on other games as Icarus is a
real disappointment.

- Cool Class Up system.
- Nice soundtrack music.
- Unique square battle system.

- Boring to play after you complete the game.
- Simply terrifying graphics!
- I repeat, simply terrifying graphics!

{6} Guide for Icarus {6}

This guide is created to help people who have difficulties on getting certain
treasure chests and defeating enemies. Note that I too have difficulty on
defeating some enemies.

If you know how to defeat enemies that I have not wrote down, please e-mail to
me at [email protected] . You will be credited.

Also, sometimes I may give some advice what to buy equipments and sometimes
not. Just plan carefully what to buy and you will end up sucessful.

The adventure begins as Colias destroyed the Coshark Mercenary. Guile was
killed by Colias but Dreus escaped. After that, the next scene showed Helena
and Recardo.

Dreus came in and fainted. Later on, after some conversations and scenes,
Recardo gave them 1500 dinas (dinas is the currency) and both of them set off.

Then, Goblins came near them and wanted to kill Dreus and Helena. So, the
Battle 1 begins.

[6.1] Battle 1

There are 4 treasure chests here altogether. They have Cab, 3 Lemons, Short
Sword and 2 Powders. Try and get all of them on your way. Be warned, if you
kill all enemies before getting the treasure chests, you'll automatically go to
the next part.

The Goblins are a bit easy. Just attack them with normal attacks, special
attacks and magics.

After that, they'll arrive at the village Inerheim. Go to the weapon shop and
buy a Robe for Helena. Be sure to equip the Cab for Dreus. You may also sell
the 1 Short Sword.

Among all the houses, there will be one clickable. It is located north of the
well. Enter that door to meet Mrs. Guwen. She will talk for a while and give
them 2 Red Wines.

Exit the village by going to an opening at the fences. You'll arrive at Padran.
You may want to buy Flamberge, Staff and Leather for both of them. Go to the
house right of the mine cart to talk to Kejal.

Now, head to the mine cart to start Battle 2.

[6.2] Battle 2

This battle is a bit easy with the help of Mr. Guwen. There are three treasure
chests here that contains 3 Pills, 3 Powders and 3 Blue Lemons.

To get all of them, try not to kill all the enemies. Leave some alone and
they'll keep following you.

About the enemies, don't worry. You may not kill all of them if you want; Mr.
Guwen will finish them all. Unless you want to build up your level, then kill
the enemies.

After defeating the beasts, Kejal will come out and speak to them. As a reward,
he give Dreus and Helena 1000 dinas. Mr. Guwen will speak to them and give
Helena the sorcery book.

Then, exit the village. At Tursha, you'll come across the Orcs. Argon will come
out from the inn and help them. After some talkings, the Battle 3 starts.

[6.3] Battle 3

There are three treasure chests that contains 400 Dinas, 400 Dinas and Open
Helm. Once you get the Open Helm, you may want to give it to Dreus. Give the
Cab to Helena.

To get all the treasure chests, try not to kill all enemies. Kill some that get
on your way.

The battle is a bit easy. Just use normal attacks, special attacks and magics.

Later, Argon will tell them about a reward from King Yulian. Go out from the
village Tursha to go to Regal.

Here, buy Saber for Dreus and Power Staff and Ring of Sun for Helena. Go to the
castle to meet King Yulian. You'll need to find Tarsha in the Tower of Winds.

[6.4] Battle 4

In Battle 4, the monsters will be a bit tough. Use Special Attacks and Magics
on the ghosts. Normal Attacks won't work.

To get Flamberge, 300 dinas and 500 dinas, try and get them on your way.

[6.5] Battle 5

This battle is almost the same as Battle 5 except that the enemies is a bit

There are three treasure chests. Each of them contain 500 dinas, Leather Armor
and Ring of Fight. Just get them on your way.

[6.6] Battle 6

Battle 6 is the battle between the three and Tarsha. There are only two
treasure chests located in separate ways.

To get 500 dinas and Scimitar, use 2 characters to get them while leaving 1
character alone.

If your attack is strong, just rest and don't bother to attack Tarsha until the
two treasure chests is collected.

If your attack is weak, attack Tarsha until he is almost dying.

After defeating Tarsha, he'll give you the scale and disappear. Then, you'll go
to Regal. This time, SPEND all your money on weapons and shields. If there are
money remainding, you may want to buy items or wines.

After spending, go and meet the king. The group will give the King the scale,
receive 5000 dinas and went off.

Then, the royal guards will come and take them off to jail. They will also take
all of the remainding money (that's why earlier, I told you to spend ALL of the

Pares will come and rescue them but spotted by the guards.

[6.7] Battle 7

To get 2000 dinas, 500 dinas, 500 dinas, Power Staff and 300 dinas, form 2

fly off to the sky.

{7} Cheats {7}

There are only three cheats I know. I got it from http://www.game-club.com/ If
you type correctly, a message 'cheat enable' should appear.

In a battle, before you attack an enemy with magic or other attacks, type
'baby' without the commas to kill an enemy immediately.

Before attacking, type 'waac' to preserve your HP & MP. Even when an enemy
attack you, your HP will still maintain.

Before attacking with attacks or magics, type 'upup' so that you can Level Up

I got the cheat below from Al Amaloo of http://vgstrategies.com/

This 'jjun' cheat is unknown to me. In a battle, if you type 'jjun', a message
'cheat disable' will appear. If you activate one of the cheats above, type
'jjun' and the message 'cheat enable' will appear. Strange, isn't it?
