Found this review in the "good read" upper right hand corner. They actually translated this game on romhacking.net, and GameFAQs has a walkthrough for it. I considered writing maps. But I got sort of bored, and didn't write any game stuff for a while. That usually means I wasn't willing to admit a game sucked.

I don't think it does everything wrong, but it doesn't do much right. The zodiac signs make no sense, and I think the color is interpreted as blood type. Still, I found the game to be at least a 2, maybe a 3, for as far as I got, because the dungeons are interesting, and the teleports are cool once you understand them. Funnily, this reminds me of reading your Castlequest review, which I also enjoyed, though I rated the game a bit higher.

After I wrote that review, I got emailed by a dude who'd been playing it a bit, too. The two of us worked together and scoured the net to figure out how to beat it. This was before that walkthrough got done on GFaqs. I started to do one for that game.....but realized I really hated playing it and that was the end of that.

Any fond memories I have of that game involves me and the other guy scanning the 'net for anything that might help us figure out the game and emailing each other our search results.

Congratulations on solving the untranslated version! I'm starting to wonder if someone needs a support group to solve this game, period. Some of this stuff is arbitrary, like finding the devil key fighting enemies. Or having to scour most of the map to find an item. I'm starting to see why you gave the game a 1. It is turning viciously bad. But it may yield a very cathartic bash review. It has so much wrong with it, I don't think one review can hold it without sounding bitter. I mean, I tried cheating my way through and got bogged down.

It all leaves me wondering why anyone bothered to translate this game.
