Set in a steampunk version of the late 19th century where people use giant airships to travel the world, Nostalgia puts gamers in the shoes of Eddie Brown, the son of a great adventurer who disappeared after coming across a mysterious organization. After securing his father's dirigible, The Maverick, Eddie and his companions, Fiona, Melody, and Pad, leave the confines of London and head out on an epic journey that takes them all around the world, with stops in places like Cairo, Tokyo, and New York City. In each location, players must seek out helpful citizens and dredge up information about where to head next, while also participating in some dungeon crawling to fund their journey.
Gamers can engage in airborne ship battles as well as traditional ground combat, both of which unfold in a turn-based manner. The Maverick is outfitted with a cannon, machine gun turrets, a laser, and a "prow" used for ramming, and players can purchase upgrades for each weapon from city merchants. The higher gamers soar, the faster they can travel from place to place, but as the altitude rises, so too does the strength of enemy ships. Ground-based combat is no cinch either, with players squaring off against a variety of mythical beasts, but each character has special attacks and skills that can be customized. Those not satisfied with exploring the world and hunting down Eddie's father can stop by the Adventurer's Association for a variety of lucrative side quests. ~ Christopher Brown, All Game Guide
