Atelier Escha & Logy: Alchemists of the Dusk Sky is the most recent RPG release in the extended Atelier series. It is a stand-alone game, so if you’ve never played any of the previous ones, you could definitely start here.
The main characters in the story are Escha Malier and Logix (Logy) Fiscario, government employees in the small town of Colseit. The game-play is based around the idea of governance of time: the year is split into quarters, and each “season” has its own story quest, and side tasks that help develop the story. The quests are your main priority, and after those are completed, the story furthers into more detail including exploring and adventure, crafting/upgrading items, battling monsters, and checking off side tasks.
The game offers different endings and slight variations throughout the game when you play as either Escha or Logy. According to Griffin Vacheron of We Got This Covered, the “combat falls a bit flat compared to crafting, and it’s not always clear exactly what to do next, but luckily, the enjoyable and rewarding nature of exploration largely offsets such complaints.”

The sequel to the much loved strategy story continues to keep you on the edge with new offense zombies, and new plants to defend your lawn with. Join Crazy Dave on a travel through time to defeat and defend your home base from zombies in Ancient Egypt, the Wild West, or even in the Pirate Seas.
Lightning Reed, and Bloomerang are only two of the new powerful plants you will need to help defend your lawn. There are new power-ups and plant foods to help assist you in the new dimensions.
The graphics are also way better in the sequel, and the plant/zombie movement (not that it matters to anyone else but me) is much more fluid. You’ll notice you the zombie’s arm swinging much more.
The app is currently free in the App Store, but there’s an additional cost for extra dimensions. Even if you’re only getting one dimension, it’s free, so why not? Get it here.
