I'm not sure if I've made this suggestion before, but I'll say it.
Legacy of the Wizard is an often overlooked NES game, which is actually a well made game. However, it had one flaw, and that is the fact that the game is not linear. Doesn't sound like much, but one could play this game for HOURS without making any bit of progress. This might be me, but this game would be in dire need of a hack that at least has a map you can access by pausing the game. Plus, the only way you can save the game is if you crawl all the way back to the beginning screen, and if you die, you restart the game all over again. So maybe have the inns act as a password hub as well. Oh, and you can only equip items after finding one of those inns, which is necessary for this game.
I feel as if Legacy of the Wizard was designed by Satan himself. It's more possible to beat Ooze on Action 52 than it is to beat this game.
