Summary

Fan-freaking-tastic

The Good

Easy player control/interface (there's really only one or two buttons), nothing too cryptic about puzzles in the game, and some really neat little twists.

The Bad

Not supported for Windows..Dammitt!

The Bottom Line

First player perspective of the older genre of RPG- completely turn based, no animation, but a great plot/story line, some cool ways to perish (which thou wilt regularly)- my first RPG that made a fanatic out of me. Interface for the NES not so good. However, the most interactive version is available for Macintosh, running on the 68030 processor type, runs on anything up to and including system 6.X.
