Ys III: Wanderers from Ys (MSX2)

MSX

Game Description:

Yep, the unloved bastard child of the Ys series. It’s really not that bad of a game, but it’s just not an Ys game by any means, aside from the fact that Adol is in it. It’s kind of like Zelda II, except Wanderers from Ys is actuallly good. Anyways, the game takes on a side-scrolling perspective, and you have to swing your sword at stuff (which, if you’re not familiar with the Ys series, is actually a pretty big change), and you get your ass kicked a lot. Maybe you have to go around and waste tons and tons of time leveling up, but Falcom could’ve at least given you an easier way to replenish HP. In order to do so (without using any valuable Herb) you have to go outside the cave, and then your health gradually refills while outside. Then you go back inside. Which is pretty goddamn annoying! Okay, it’s really not that bad, but.. well, you’ll find out in a second.

The MSX version here either has a ton of slowdown, or all my emulators are just whacked. I’ve got to say, though, the tradeoff here is almost worth it, because the graphics are simply marvelous. Lots of colors, parallax scrolling… and a ton of slowdown. Oh well.

Translation Description:

Oasis originally released this as a completely translated set of disk images, so the Whirlpool decided to make four IPS patches (one per disk) for a slightly more legal distribution method. Romhacking.net is hosting these patches with the Whirlpool’s exclusive permission.

Anyways, this is completely finished, with Oasis’s trademark questionable English. For instance, it looks like they decided to leave the apostrophe and the letter Z out of the font. It also seems like they broke the game, at least in emulators; it’ll crash whenever you try to enter the quarry. Just switch to the Japanese data disk and it’ll work fine. Which makes it very difficult to level up anywhere near there, by the way. Cause like, what if you forget to switch disks, and accidentally walk into the quarry? You’re kinda screwed there. So that’s no fun.
