Madou Monogatari I

Sega Genesis

Game Description:

It’s the day of the graduation exam at Magic Kindergarten, but only one person has qualified to take it: the promising mage but uninspiring student Arle Nadja, who fluked into passing the preliminary by choosing random answers. Now, Arle finds herself unexpectedly facing the school’s terrifying final exam: to escape from the massive, monster-infested Magic Tower in the playground. Will Arle make it out? And more importantly, can she earn enough points to pass her exam and graduate from kindergarten?

Sorcery Saga Ⅰ for the Mega Drive is a 1996 dungeon crawler by Compile. It’s nominally a remake of the first episode of the Madou Monogatari 1-2-3 trilogy, originally released for the MSX2 home computer in 1990, but aside from the basic story premise and a few gameplay concepts, it’s essentially a completely new game. Turn-based combat has been scrapped in favor of a fighting game–inspired action battle system, the dungeon layouts are completely different, and a new system for catching and battling with monsters plays a prominent role. It also holds the distinction of being the very last game officially released for the Mega Drive in Japan.

Translation Description:

It's a pretty nice game with a pretty good translation

Reviewed By: xZabuzax on 14 Dec 2020

Just finished this game a couple of minutes ago in the emulator Kega Fusion, took me 4 days to finish it with a 100%, the translation was pretty good and I didn’t find any typos, AFAIK it was perfect, this is a high quality translation for sure.

About the game…

The good: It’s a nice game with pretty graphics, interesting fight mechanic and nice music, it’s a nice dungeon crawling game to pass the time, don’t expect anything serious from it because you won’t find anything serious, the story was simple.

The bad: It was quite tedious most of the time, you needed to grind a lot and the enemy encounters was pretty high, sometimes after the fight is over you start walking 1 or 2 steps and bam, another encounter. You are given absolutely NO DIRECTION of where you need to go or what items you need to find, or break because you need to break 4 crystals located in 1 of the 10 floors (out of 12 including 4 more floors underground), hidden, you probably wouldn’t know unless you see it in a walkthrough which I needed to use because I got stuck plenty of times. Good luck trying to complete it with a 100% without a walkthrough.

The game was nice and tedious at the same time but I still enjoyed it, otherwise I wouldn’t be playing it. Kudos for the author for this excellent translation.
