Conquest of the Crystal Palace is a hip-happenin' cart. Farron and Zap aren't the heftiest of sprites but the small details, such as Farron's blinking eyes, make up for it. This duo may be small in size but they're giants when it comes to action. With all the thinking and action this cart requires, it's crystal clear why you won't get bored with this one.

Conquest… has so many neat characteristics that keep it fresh and endearing to this day.
Cute sprite work and catchy tunes add to a very good package. A fairly meaty challenge and some levels that go on just a touch too long might be a bit frustrating for some and are the only marks against this otherwise entertaining title.

It is a bit sad that Conquest of the Crystal Palace has garnered so little attention. It can be found dirt cheap and is worth it for an afternoon of fun. The difficulty is higher than I would have liked but is not a deal breaker in my opinion. A nice little hidden gem.

Certo dia, o palácio do príncipe Farron foi atacado por uma incrível criatura chamada Zaras. O vilão mandou os pais de Farron para outro sistema solar, transformou seu melhor amigo, Zapolis, num cachorro e, em sua pior atitude, regrediu o príncipe para seis meses de idade. Quinze anos depois, Farron e seu fiel cachorrinho, Zap (o amigo Zapolis, lembra?), partem para a revanche.

I wish I could find something to rave about here, but in all honesty the only element that sets this game apart from the crowd--your canine companion--isn’t even all that great. If you happen across Conquest of the Crystal Palace, you’re likely to get your money’s worth, but that’s mostly only because you’re probably not going to pay much to acquire it. It’s fine while it lasts, but even as I write this review, my memory of the game is fading…
