Ys III: Wanderers from Ys (MSX2)

MSX

Game Description:

Yep, the unloved bastard child of the Ys series. It’s really not that bad of a game, but it’s just not an Ys game by any means, aside from the fact that Adol is in it. It’s kind of like Zelda II, except Wanderers from Ys is actuallly good. Anyways, the game takes on a side-scrolling perspective, and you have to swing your sword at stuff (which, if you’re not familiar with the Ys series, is actually a pretty big change), and you get your ass kicked a lot. Maybe you have to go around and waste tons and tons of time leveling up, but Falcom could’ve at least given you an easier way to replenish HP. In order to do so (without using any valuable Herb) you have to go outside the cave, and then your health gradually refills while outside. Then you go back inside. Which is pretty goddamn annoying! Okay, it’s really not that bad, but.. well, you’ll find out in a second.

The MSX version here either has a ton of slowdown, or all my emulators are just whacked. I’ve got to say, though, the tradeoff here is almost worth it, because the graphics are simply marvelous. Lots of colors, parallax scrolling… and a ton of slowdown. Oh well.
