A remake of Namco’s Arcade game, this doesn’t really make the game any easier (unless you play one of the easier difficulties). But what it does do is give things a little more depth.
Gil now has his own stats which are upgraded by finding equipment, and after a floor is passed. Treasure chests are now also unlocked differently: before you enter a floor, you are given a hint of something you’re supposed to do. Solve the riddle and you’ll find the chest on the floor. There are also four difficulty modes. Other than that, for the most part this works like a graphically enhanced version of the original.
This is the very first ROM translation that I’ve ever performed. The Tower of Druaga for the PC-Engine is a remake of the original 1984 Namco arcade game. It was wildly popular in Japan, and completely overlooked in America. I discovered the PC-Engine version while researching information about the original game and it’s variants. In order to do well at this game, you need to know each of the seemingly random methods necessary to reveal the treasure chests on each floor. The goddess Ishtar provides you with hints before each floor, but if you can’t understand what she’s saying, it’s of little help.
Everything that I could possibly find and locate has been translated. If there is any remaining untranslated text, I don’t know how to make it appear. I welcome any notes about spelling mistakes or things that I might have missed, so don’t hesitate to contact me. Please enjoy this patch, and enjoy the game.
