Azure Dreams is an Action Role-Playing game, developed and published by Konami, which was released in 2000.

Story:The huge Monster Tower stands near the village Monsbaiya. It is populated by vicious monsters, and few dare enter it. But the monsters in the tower lay eggs, and whoever takes possession of such an egg, can tame a monster which will come out of it, and those monsters, called "familiars", will help their tamers in times of danger. Some brave adventurers dared to enter the tower and to take the eggs. One of them was called Guy. He was killed in the monster tower. Now his son Koh is fifteen, and he is allowed to try his luck in the tower.

Bahamut Lagoon combines RPG mechanics with squad-based combat. Characters have HP, MP (SP for fighter characters), EXP, equipment, stats and class-specific, SP-draining special elemental abilities very much like traditional console RPGs. The player can explore his surroundings, talk to people and visit shops when not in battle, though to a limited degree as there is no world map and no way to leave the current area.

The game's core is its turn-based battles fought on a 2d grid. Characters are assembled into parties of four and the player allowed a maximum of six parties, which are usually well outnumbered. The two opposing sides act in alternating turns so that each party can move once and/or attack once a turn. Attacks are divided into distant and close-up combat. In the former, a party uses a special ability (e.g. casting fireballs, throwing lightning, healing allies) of one of its user at a distance. The range and possible area of effect damage vary per ability. If the attacking party has two or more characters with the same ability, they join in the action to multiply its effectiveness. Distant combat results in less money and generally less damage, but the target cannot retaliate. Distant attacks can also affect the field; fire and ice ignite or extinguish forests and melt or freeze ice, etc. Close-up, each unit in two adjacent opposing parties can act once. Very much like Final Fantasy SNES combat, they can attack an enemy, use an item or a special ability (though these can't be combined and most only affect one target instead of all) or defend.

Dragons are the player's ace in the hole. They have their own stats and gain experience like normal characters do. In battle, each party has a dragon attached to it and draws a large portion of its strength from that of its dragon: if a party's dragon is slain, the party will lose the ability to use special attacks and class-specific abilities for the remainder of the map. The beast acts as a very powerful autonomous unit that moves after its party does and it cannot be controlled beyond very simple commands, e.g. "Come!" Out of battle, dragons will eat anything and raising them by feeding them items is an important part of the game. Feeding can improve their stats as well as affect their behavior on the field, and the dragons develop into new forms as they grow.

The player can change the characters in each of the parties, their formation as well as what dragon represents them at will.

Simulating Japanese survival war games, players must survive an assault from the bad guys. The closest equivalent that North American culture has to this game is paintball. Each character is assigned a Japanese code name and a main weapon by the player himself. Players can only move up to a certain amount of squares per turn and can only be hit a certain number of times before being killed. The game itself is divided into 24 different missions. Victory conditions vary from mission to mission, and may be anything from "kill the leader" to "free the prisoner and return to the escape point."

Unlike a medieval strategy game, rushing at an opponent with nothing but a knife is the way to get killed. Medium and long-range weapons are the speciality of the game. Battles can take place anywhere from desert islands to office buildings or shopping malls. All the opponents are seen wearing helmets that resemble those of legendary Star Wars villain Darth Vader.

The Bard's Tale is a straightforward "dungeon crawl". The objective is to gain experience and advance characters' skills through (mostly) random combat with enemies and monsters. This is done while exploring maze-like dungeons, solving occasional puzzles and riddles, and finding or buying better weapons and armor.

Our hero stumbles across an ancient power in a long forgotten cave that proves to be the start of a dangerous quest to thwart the rise of an evil which also hearkens from the past. A single-player RPG that comes across as something of a cross between the Norse Eddas and the Arabian Knights.

A top-down Zelda-like adventure, with great character art and animation along with Street Fighter style special moves. Not many enemy types, but decent gameplay and great graphics.

Bikkuriman World is an action/adventure game by Hudson Soft. The game is known in the west as Wonder Boy in Monsterland and is supposed to be the second episode of the Wonder Boy series. However, Hudson Soft slightly modified the original game and made it fit their Bikkuriman World franchise (read the info section). The player takes control of a young warrior on a journey to rescue his beloved girlfriend. One of the key element of the original game was to offer a clever mix of platform/action and Role Playing elements. At its core, Bikkuriman World is a side scrolling action game featuring a vitality bar that automatically decreases unless our hero eats fruits and vegetables. Our hero starts his journey with his underwear and his first task is to find a short sword (interestingly called 'Gradius') and a tiny shield. Not the best weapon to bash with, but enough to take down the small snakes and mushrooms wandering around the first area. Defeated enemies often drop coins that can later be used in shops to purchase new equipment. A handy magic potion can be picked up and used to refill the precious health bar but only one can be carried at the same time. Our warrior can also use magic spells and throw tornadoes, lightings and fireballs at his enemies. The game counts numerous areas with small villages, dungeons, caves and mean bosses waiting at the end of each one of them.

Hundreds of years ago, dragons and dragon warriors protected the land from evil. Perhaps their greatest victory was against the Great Demon, a being that terrorized innocents everywhere by unleashing its legion of monsters. The Dragon of Wisdom taught humans how to find safety while the Dragon of War defeated the Demon in battle, forcing him to return to mist. The Dragon of Good Luck trapped the Demon in an underground cavern.

Unfortunately, the dragons and their human companions, the dragon warriors, have faded into the annals of history and are now merely legends. Only one dragon warrior remains, and he has set off on a dangerous mission in search of the last dragons. Before leaving, he told his son Remeer that he must continue the hunt for dragons, especially if he does not return. Sadly, Remeer hears the fateful tone in his father's voice and begins preparing for the most important task of his young life -- that of hunting for and finding the lost dragons.

Remeer is the star of Brain Lord and the only character you can control, but he does have an entourage follow him during his journey. Kashian is a bounty hunter and adventurer with the skills of a witch and warrior. Barness, a deeply spiritual man, began hunting dragons after being inspired by an omen in the stars.

When it comes to self-sacrifice, Rein reigns supreme, using his bounty hunting and warrior skills to mete out justice wherever and whenever he can. Last but not least, Ferris, a witch whose parents were fortunetellers, keeps to herself, but is nevertheless an asset to the group.

As you journey through the various towns and castles in Brain Lord, honoring your father's request that you search for the lost dragons, you must solve many puzzles and do battle with a host of bloodthirsty monsters. To help you defeat the creatures, you can purchase (and later resell) axes, maces, boomerangs, bows, arrows and other weapons.

You will run across nine different Jades in your journey, each one holding a Fairie. The Fairies perform a variety of helpful tasks, such as throw fireballs, release lightning bolts and restore your hit points. You can also acquire shields and armor and up to 13 magic spells of your own.

When maneuvering around the various obstacles that obstruct your pathway, you will find that you can move some types of rocks and barriers. You can also collect keys that are useful for opening locked doors. Other items you will need throughout the game include X-ray glasses, food, warp gates, and herbs. If you need to save your progress or refill your life meter, you can stay at an Inn. If you need information, try talking to a statue. Statues can also save your progress.

To succeed in this game, you must be a Brain Lord -- a being clever enough to make it through the mysteries and challenges you will face. If you don't like your given name, Remeer, you can change it to one of your own choosing. However, the perils and struggles will remain the same.

In Brandish, a role-playing game similar to Breath of Fire and Brain Lord, you are Varik, a mighty swordsman falsely accused of murder. While being pursued by a vengeful sorceress, you fall into an underground world of scary monsters, mind-boggling mazes, and treacherous traps. Your job is to escape from this dark underworld and return to civilization. In trying to escape from the labyrinthian depths of this hellish place, you must use your swords and shields to ward off gargoyles, skeletons, minotaurs, ninjas, wizards, and 50 other types of creatures intent on your death. Along the way you can find, purchase, or sell more than 50 different items including fire magic, magic potion, steel balls, sledgehammers keys, and other things to aid you in your quest. A map is available for your perusal to help you navigate the 5 levels of play. At various points throughout the game, you can try to get helpful information by communicating with other characters. So you won't have to repeat earlier levels every time you turn on your Super Nintendo, you can save up to two games at any one time.

In the beginning, there was a race of beings who had the power to change into powerful dragons. The Dragon Family lived in peaceful harmony, until the Goddess Tyr appeared. Promising to grant their wishes, the separate clans of the Dragon Family started fighting amongst each other, hoping for the power the Goddess had to offer.

One clan, the Light Dragons, realized that something was amiss and sent a warrior to stop the evils. He was victorious and sealed the Goddess into six keys and spread them across the land. The world recovered from the catastrophic battles, and the Light Dragons grew soft. With this softening, they lost most of their powers and lived as men, but the Dark Dragons were biding their time. Soon a leader rose among the Dark Dragons, named Zog. He set out to destroy the Light Dragons and take the Goddess Keys, and resurrect the evil Goddess. Your journey begins with the destruction of your village. . .

Breath of Fire II takes players into the world of the fantasy RPG, where friends are made, battles are fought, and an intriguing storyline develops with every step the hero makes.

One day you take a nap near the remains of a once great dragon, only to wake and find that both your father and sister are missing. Upon being recieved as an orphan into a local church, you meet and befriend a little theif named Bow. Agreeing that greater things lie in the next village, the two of venture across the country and into a cave. You meet with a fierce monster and all goes black. Years pass like the wind and your childhood is all but a memory of the past. And thus your adventure begins...

Breath of Fire II utilizes the same tried and true over-head perspective and graphics somewhat in the style of Final Fantasy III. The battle modes have differences here and there, but much of the key actions such as attack, magic, defense, item, or special move remain. The game also contains "party building" elements, instead of revolving around a lone, central hero as in the Zelda games.

The game also contains multiple game save slots and the ability to name the main character.

"Welcome!" says the king, "Long have I awaited your arrival. My kingdom of Dirzar was once a peaceful place until the Balrog came. He has abducted my daughter and laid waste to the land. Now I must trust in you to bring her back to me safely and rid us of this terror." With that, you begin your quest as either warrior or magician to rid the land of the evil Balrog. A scaled-down port of the hit arcade game.

A side-scroll fantasy platformer that strives for RPG variety but ultimately fails. The RPG element tends to slow down the game, as it needlessly complicates the power-up process. If they had just stuck to the arcade element, then Taito might have had something here.

The Genesis port curiously excluded two of the four playable classes, keeping only the fighter and mage. The port was not entirely accurate although the graphics were similar, albeit with a much darker palette. The giant kelp boss was removed entirely from this version. The healing value of herbs, damage from enemies, enemy AI, and many more aspects of the game were altered. This is the only version of Cadash where the player can buy elixirs, which serve as extra lives, in item shops. The time limit, that existed in the original arcade version, was removed.
