Is Undercroft worth buying?

I'm interested in buying an RPG something like The Quest and Undercroft, I have tried both although I tend to lean towards Undercroft. Is it worth buying (why or why not). How many hours does the game clock in total?

Also can you suggest an RPG with a good story, with length and obviously detail. Graphics isn't a must, but if they are good sure.

I did beta testing on it and if you tried the lite you know the type of game it is. Average play time is probably 15 - 18 hours. Obviously you can play with other characters but story does not change. I love these types of RPGs.

A long list of pros but I am on a phone - humour, side quests, surprises. Good difficulty, always challenging, but not frustratingly so. Lots of items, weapons , etc. Good emphasis on exploration. Able to be a completionist.

I think biggest con is that as you move from area to area you can't go back. Also story does not change, so even with different characters you kind of know what to expect and where to go.

I can't compare them as I could never get into The Quest. I can't explain why, just did not. I enjoyed playing Undercroft immensly though. Time wise you can't beat The Quest. Hundreds of hours for 10 dollars.

I recommend going with the one whose lite version you liked better. Even with the shorter play time, you will have a great experience.

Chaos Rings when it comes out.

Zenonia 2 is out already, but the dialogue is pretty terrible.
