You know, every once in a while, Game Gear games can be pretty damn sweet. Take this here Sylvan Tale game for example. Action RPGs (such as this one) are rare, and GOOD action RPGs are rare indeed. This is just the tip of the iceberg as to why Sylvan Tale is cool. Actually it’s pretty much the entire reason; it’s a damn fine action RPG. The music is simply awesome, especially considering the system (with one small exception!), the graphics are very well done, and the gameplay’s there. It’s ALL there. There’s a plot too, but it doesn’t matter. Who cares? Swing your sword around and kill things! That’s what life’s all about goddammit!
This zip file comes with two patches. The STMUSIC.IPS file changes the menu music to a much less annoying tune. Trust me, you’ll want that patch. The SYLVANTL.IPS file contains the “untouched” English translation, for you purist freaks.
The screenshots are all from VERY early on because I kept forgetting to save my game. And the screenshots really suck too. But it gives you a good idea of how sweet the game is. Go play the game.
Recently, Gideon Zhi has teamed up with z80gaiden to improve the patch, and hopes to soon offer a new release with an improved script, a VWF, two-line item names and translated map graphics.
