For a Gameboy game, this looks and sounds great. Which is saying alot, given that most Gameboy games are lacking both musically and visually. The sprites look really neat, and character portaits displayed alongside the text are well-done, and make for a nice touch. Sadly though, there is a lot of dialog, and since none of the translations translate very much of the dialog, it’s hard to say anything else about this game. Hell, for all I know, this might be more of an RPG than an adventure game. I never made it far enough in to encounter anything hostile. But what I’ve seen of this looks really nice, and it is a Compile game… so I hope it gets finished someday.
Okay, maybe this patch doesn’t have much English, but it’s definitely of somewhat higher quality. For one thing, you can tell the dialog isn’t made up, and for another, the spelling and grammar are halfway decent. Unfortunately, there are some problems with the naming screen (the inputs are off by two characters in some spots–pushing ‘v’ inputs a ‘t’, for instance), but you can look past that.
