DeathSpank is an action role-playing game which also features elements from graphic adventure games. Combat gameplay is similar to Diablo. Players can acquire several pieces of armor and weaponry, each with different abilities and attributes. During combat players can chain attacks in combos, which in turn deal more damage with each hit. As more hits are gained on enemies, DeathSpank’s Justice Meter will fill. Once full, the player can unleash more powerful attacks for a limited time.
In-game conversations with non-player characters are also a large part of the game. DeathSpank features advanced dialog options, similar to LucasArts’ Monkey Island series which play a large part in unfolding the game’s story. These conversations may lead to quests for DeathSpank. In all, the game features 79 side quests in addition to the 33 quests required to advance the main plot. Once the game is completed the player can return and complete any unfinished side quests.
