Pre-Thoughts:
The first time I saw this game, the only thought that came to my mind was: "Is this a good game?" And now I have finally come to review this. In the beginning, like where the player was placed, it looked like a simple game. I thought, "This might no be the best game to review." But then when I started playing, it got really addicting saying, "I want more!" In otherwords, the game had 3 points that were so confusing to get to, that you just want to get the game over with. But otherwise, lets get to the main chunk of this review...

Review:
When it started loading, I was extremely impressed by the game's Difficulty. Then that its where I got intrested. So I started playing it, and the game was a little bland. There really wasn't much besides killing a few monsters, and such. But here's the cheese, The game was hard at some points, and it got me thinking, " Is this a Puzzle Game? Or An Adventure Game?" I got so overwhelmed in my mind of what happened, I can't even explain it. But then, it all made sense. In Scarred Past, seemed as if there are not too many puzzles, so I thought it was an adventure game. Although there were a couple of monsters that made the game hard, and a couple of hazards you couldn't avoid, it still was more of an adventure game. As it says in the description about the game, "You have been sent back to your past, but the place you conquered years ago seems to have been rebuilt more sturdy then ever. Can you destroy all the creatures and collect all the precious gemstones before it's too late?" Then that is where I started to get intrested. The game said I needed to get 3 gemstones, otherwise known as crystals, and defeat all the monsters, then I knew I was up for a challenge. But anyway, The game required 3 tools to pretty much win the game. A Mace, a Flamethrower, and your sword. But besides power ups, there was no health what-so-ever. So, that is what made the game hard. But not too hard, in my opinion, but for others it can be. Anyway, Lets see if this is worth a feature.

Feature Worthy?
It is the slightest bit feature worthy in my opinion because it wasn't "impossible" hard. I actually got close to beating Scarred Past, but then I couldn't find a way to get the last gemstone. Slightly Confusing, but nontheless better than most games. Overall, this game does have a chance, so good luck!

Pros: (Starts off With 2.5, Nothing was Really Bad)
Professional Enemy Placement (In rating +1)
Tool Placement (In rating +0.5)
Addictive and Fun to Play (In rating +1.5)
Profesional Trap Placement (In rating +1)

Cons: (Starts off with 2.5, Nothing was Really Bad)

Beginner Traps (Easy Traps, In rating -0.5)

Score: (Out of 5)

Gameplay: 4/5 (Minor Flaw)
Enemy Placement: 3.5/5 (Minor Flaw)
Tools: 3/5
Traps: 3/5
Overall Rating: 3.5/5

Conclusion:
Overall, I am impressed. From the Gameplay to Monsters, This game was a fun game and Enjoyable. I will reccomend this to my friends and comrads. And I hope this game gets far over popular, I'd like it to be famous!

Thank you for Reading!

Denied, it wasn't bad, but a lot of things were clumsily expressed, and you kept changing your mind throughout. A lot of it I found myseld muddled and hnsure of what you mean. I also feel as if I haven't been told anything specific about the game.

Better luck next time.
