Okay, where to begin… Well, in Gulliver Boy, you play as Gulliver. He gets this really nifty energy-wave-hadouken thing which is his main attack, and you eventually get spiffy Minder attacks which are basically like spells and stuff. And you also get this Edison guy who really has very limited use ‘cuz he only gets one or two bombs (at first) and he takes forever to make more. The game is also rather short (I completed it in about six hours, I think.)
The story in short: Spain is trying to take over Europe, and Judo, prince of Spain or something, killed Gulliver’s father. Now Gulliver’s pissed off and wants revenge. Who wouldn’t? And so you set off to kick ass with nothing but Edison’s bombs, Gulliver’s hadouken thing, and Gulliver’s gigantic hair. Misty eventually joins you, but ends up being dead weight at first :P Oh, and in the second part of the game, you get this badass mech thing for all of two or three boss battles.
This patch fixes the broken dialogue text and garbled splash screen in the English patch by Dynamic Designs, both of which could be experienced when running the game on real hardware and accurate emulators.

Decent, short and sweetReviewed By: Real_Character on 09 Sep 2016
This is no Mana game, but it’s a decent action rpg based on an anime property. No heavy grinding here. Some near the end, but nothing crazy. The hardest parts to me were the 3rd person mech battles, which are fairly clunky. Getting to the translation and hacking work, it’s well done, from the font to the dialogue. I vaguely remember watching this anime in Spanish back in the day, and all the main characters seem to be here.
Version 1.1 Recommended - Yes
