It wasn't quite as good as Phantasy Star, but it had a rockin' soundtrack with music that still dominates to this day (and if you don't believe me, check out some of Falcom's remake CDs of the music--incredible), and gameplay that set it up as an innovative predecessor to games like Seiken Densetsu.


Finally someone else appreciates the music of Ys, that series always has the best soundtracks in videogames :D


I've never played the games, but readily agree that the soundtrack is marvelous.

Phantasy Star was the best, of course. I also liked Alex Kidd in Miracle World and Columns (which I always found far superior to Tetris). I vaguely remember some game, I think it was called Cloud Master, where you rode around on a cloud shooting enemies, and you could upgrade your weapons, and you had to be careful not to get caught between a rock and the edge of the screen.

It sounds silly, but I also liked the Master System version of Monopoly. The music and graphics were pretty good, and there was nothing funnier than a boot or an iron being sent to jail and spending some time behind bars.

I vaguely recall CLOUD MASTER, although I don't think I ever played it.

AugFourth: Are you of the popular opinion that after MIRACLE WORLD, the only Alex Kidd game that came close to recreating the magic of the first one was SHINOBI WORLD (i.e. you'd like to forget about HIGH TECH WORLD and LOST STARS)?

I actually never played the others, just Miracle World. I didn't have a whole lot of games and I never bothered downloading the ROMs for that series.

Then by thunder, it's time for you to play those three games (they're not all that time consuming...well, maybe HIGH TECH WORLD is) so you can give me an answer. :D

I'm not aug4th nor is this about the SMS, but "Enchanted Castle" is a game I have a love-hate relationship with. I'm crazy enough to have downloaded it to my Wii, and I find that the cartoony, 16-bit color-saturated graphics just drown me in nostalgia. I think I sigh wistfully every time I start the game. However, the first half of the game is easy and the last half of the game kicks my butt. The butt-kicking isn't worth the incredibly awful ending to the game. But darn you, Alex Kidd in the Enchanted Castle, I can't quit you.

I liked the Enchanted Castle and I proudly admit that the game did not kick my butt at all. Miracle World, on the other hand, just utterly defeated me for years on end (it took me years to make it to the first castle). I only beat it after using cheat codes.

IMO, Miracle World is the best by far, but Enchanted Castle is a decent sequel for Miracle World, though inferior. The other Alex Kidd games are not that good. Lost Stars was silly, High-Tech World had some fun parts and some stupid ones and Shinobi World is just an average game.

Phantasy Star, lol. As far as I know, it was one of - if not THE first RPG in the world.
Also, it WAS the first game in the world to have a girl as the leading character without being sexist.

Even though most games back then were really fun to play! Someone, quickly invent a Time Machine so that people from this generation can see the perfection of that time! XD

One that folks should probably ought to try is Golvellius- it's a pretty good Zelda-like by Compile, who would later make The Guardian Legend.
