    Swapped the primary and alternative names. The original Japanese title should be used first with the translated title used as an alternate. The original name of the rom has been made the primary name. Kinda odd that the Japanese title makes more sense than the supposed translated title, but I didn't make the names I just swapped them lol.
  • Games
    Just another name swap. The Japanese name is "Lipple Island" and I figure it should be the primary name and the translated name "Ripple Island" should be the alternative. :)
  • Games
    The given name for this game was a translated name. The original name attached to the rom file and found elsewhere as the name for this game was not included except in the translation notes of which rom to use. I have made the rom name the primary name and the translated one the "alternative" name. I do believe that should be how it is. :)

Sylvan Tale

Sega Game Gear

Game Description:

You know, every once in a while, Game Gear games can be pretty damn sweet. Take this here Sylvan Tale game for example. Action RPGs (such as this one) are rare, and GOOD action RPGs are rare indeed. This is just the tip of the iceberg as to why Sylvan Tale is cool. Actually it’s pretty much the entire reason; it’s a damn fine action RPG. The music is simply awesome, especially considering the system (with one small exception!), the graphics are very well done, and the gameplay’s there. It’s ALL there. There’s a plot too, but it doesn’t matter. Who cares? Swing your sword around and kill things! That’s what life’s all about goddammit!

Translation Description:

This zip file comes with two patches. The STMUSIC.IPS file changes the menu music to a much less annoying tune. Trust me, you’ll want that patch. The SYLVANTL.IPS file contains the “untouched” English translation, for you purist freaks.

The screenshots are all from VERY early on because I kept forgetting to save my game. And the screenshots really suck too. But it gives you a good idea of how sweet the game is. Go play the game.

Recently, Gideon Zhi has teamed up with z80gaiden to improve the patch, and hopes to soon offer a new release with an improved script, a VWF, two-line item names and translated map graphics.
