Video Games

It was released as Nintendo Entertainment software from NCS (Extreme) on October 30, 1992. Genre is a role playing game. The hero is a person of the game original, and becomes a youth "Joule" who was banished from the twin sister Sasha to the devil Samoilenko. The hero's classes are selected from "Warrior" specialized in melee fighting, "Saint Warrior" who can use recovery magic, "Magic Knight" specialized in attack magic. The goal of the game is to travel around the country and add characters of the original to their friends and beat the five star star and Samoilenko.

In the attack other than the warrior, you can hardly give damage to the enemy, while conversely it is difficult to challenge enemy opponents with high defense without wizards, so the role sharing by the class is clear. Many fellow characters will appear, so you can organize various parties, but it is important to consider the balance of class abilities.

In addition, special actions are set for each class, and when you use the "Defense" command, it is activated randomly.

As a unique system, you can aim for enemy weaknesses during battle. If the hit point is in the head it may cause a concussion or if it is in the hand there is a possibility of shutting down the attack method.
