    Hi guys! Once Upon the Woods is my entry submission for the One Map Challenge event being held at Rpgmaker.web. :) It is a very short and simple RPG that features the story of Hansel and Gretel, an old fairy-tale that we have all heard. This game is sort of like my high-fantasy take on the story. ^_^ I hope that you enjoy! :)

    Once upon a time in a faraway forest, there lived a poor family that has two twin children: Hansel and Gretel. The twins' parents have been in an economic struggle for a very long time, and they decided to take the twins out in the woods to abandon them and free themselves from the burden of feeding the twins. Fortunately, Hansel left a trail of white stones from where they left which helped them return home, but, the Mother was angered with their return and decided to take the twins out on the woods again to abandon them once more. With Hansel leaving behind a trail of breadcrumbs, will this help them find their way back home again?

    Gretel:
    The girl of the twins, Gretel is a timid and shy girl who has an optimistic outlook on life. She's easily frightened but is always determined to see her and her brother's dreams fulfilled. She has learned magic from secretly reading their mother's books on witchcraft and wizardry. Gretel specializes mostly in healing and light magic.

    Hansel:
    The boy of the twins, Hansel is a brave and caring boy who is very protective of her sister. He has a strong sense of justice and is the one who has overheard their parents talking about their abandonment. Hansel has learned the way of the sword by finding his father's old battle equipment. Hansel specializes in tanking incoming damage and dealing physical damage.

    I did a short review of this:
    http://atspela.blogspot.se/2018/05/once-upon-forest.html

    My main points:
    - Really fun rewrite of the basic Hansel and Gretel story. The whole mood of the game were great!
    - Had the content of the chests been randomized that would have made it fun to retry the game.
    - The battles are really well-balanced and the designs are very creative.
    - I really liked the strategy of the skills and the resource-management you had to do. The game was pretty challenging but never felt unfair.
    - I was a bit confused about how old the characters where supposed to be?

    @Canini - Wow!! I'm really that you took the time to review this short simple game of mine, Canini! ^_^ :) Thank you so much for your feedback!! :) I'm glad that you liked the gameplay and mood of the game!! ^_^ :)

    Oh, and the twins are supposedly teenagers in this game xDD Kinda like, 17-20 years old! xDD :)

    Also, I do agree with you. That idea with a randomized chest would increase replayability and strategic flexibility! ;) Should've done that, too! ^_^

    Once again, thanks a lot for your review, Canini, I really appreciate it! ^_^
