The first Madou Monogatari exists in several versions, but none of the others abandons turn-based battling. The game is not a rousing success thanks to its self-imposed limitations in setting and repetitive nature. It is not a failure either, and the limited competition on the Sega Genesis in 1996 would probably have made for a fairly popular localization. Its charms have weathered the intervening years rather well, and since it is not difficult to locate a modest recommendation can be made on its behalf.
