Epic Battle Fantasy is a turn-based strategy Role Playing game by matt-likes-swords.

Design Edit

Epic Battle Fantasy is a Role Playing Game in the tradition of Japanese games such as Final Fantasy. At the beginning of the game, players can choose from four difficulty levels, which alter the attributes of enemies. They can then buy items at a shop before beginning their quest. The game is strictly linear, and the player must defeat wave after wave of enemies, including powerful bosses, in order to progress. At certain points, the player will reach a checkpoint where they can buy and sell items. The game ends when the player defeats a powerful final boss.


The player controls two characters: Matt and Natz. Each character has his own attacks, techniques and powers. Matt is a swordsman, who can switch between various swords and execute devastating techniques. Natz is a mage, who can use healing magic, strike foes with elemental attacks, and summon creatures to help the party. Both party members can do similar actions such as attacking, defending, and using items. Generally, after the player gives orders, Matt will attack first, then Natz, then the enemies.

Presentation Edit

Epic Battle Fantasy

The first battle.

Epic Battle Fantasy uses a graphical style similar to matt-likes-swords's other work. It is colorful and clearly influenced by Japanese RPGs, which feature eccentric character designs and occasionally surreal enemies. The final boss in particular shows a strong anime influence. The soundtrack uses licensed music.


The game was awarded Daily First and Weekly Third awards, has over a million views, and was allowed to include medals and it was included on the Adventure Games collection and in the Flash Portal History of 2009. Many users however, complained about the hard difficulty and no saving. The sequel, Epic Battle Fantasy 2, fixed these problems and was nominated for the Tank Awards. A third game was submitted September 12, 2010.[1].
