When I heard about the Goemon series in my youth I caught immediately fire as I played the first part "The Mystical Ninja". But soon I had to realize that part 2-4 had only been released in Japan what made it difficult to play the games within Germany and also to read and understand the story. Thanks to the amazing work of the whole team a dream came finally true! Playing these games in English, and more oriented to the original files, feels great! I honor all the work and effort that had been put in and I look forward seeing new great projects from the team! So please keep on going, and always remember ... Go for it, Goemon!

My favourite game is Castlevania - Legacy of Darkness for the N64 directly followed by Castlevania IV for SNES. I used to play Aria of Sorrow and some on the NES either however the both ones mentioned in the beginning are still my favourite ones.

I think I haven't read about it in this topic before but I played Feda - The emblem of justice some years ago. It's some kind of JRPG and strategy game and maybe a little bit comparable to the Shining Force series. It was released for the Super Famicom in the early 90's. But still it is different. Within the game your actions decide whether you develop to a good guy, a bad guy or something in the middle. Furthermore your party evolves depending on your behaviour and what you're aiming for. The game is different to common RPGs and maybe one or another doesn't like it however if you do you should give it a try.

I think there's no special game that I would mention however RPGs for the SNES in general. In most of them you get to understand that friendship is a very important thing and that in this world there's no place for evil (or maybe just a little little bit ...). Besides you mostly learn to be a good person e. g. when you help other NPCs in sidequests by finding some stuff for them, bringing them healing or just hit some bad guys or monsters. But pretty often the main aspect is that violence is no solution at all! Sometimes it might be justified but these moments should be very rare. I wish we had the power to convince also others that the world can't be ruled with force, hatred and egoism. But current international sensations let my hope fade away ... *sigh*

I'm using a Nacon GC-100XF gamepad. However the reason I got it was because ... it's been rather cheap and it's been the only one in the shop at that time (please don't ask where I bought it ...). But I get along with it and it works pretty good. First I thought it might be a little too big for my hands but I'm fine with it. I realized later on that it looks kind of similar to a xBox gamepad. I didn't know before since I never played xBox and I didn't yet.

To be frank I have long given up hope that I will ever find this game again, as I have come to the conclusion that it must have been a rare homebrew game of some sort, because even its cover art looked like a slightly modified Final Fantasy Mystic Quest cover art.

People have suggested and found VERY similar games, but no one has ever found the precise game that I remember.

I know this post is already pretty old however there're still two games for SNES I remember which got a similar style:

- Wizardry (there exist more games of this series)
- Obitus

As far as I know Wizardry had Japanese and English language and was never released in Europe. Howver Obitus was released in the US but not in Europe either. I really hope that info might help.

Hi there everyone,

I call myself Poe however it's just an alias. My mother tongue is German. I would describe myself as a kind and ambitious person. I grew up with Nintendo in the early 90's and still I enjoy spending my freetime playing some favourite games. I'm especially into role playing games. About one year ago I got the chance to join a group doing rom hacking and translations in Germany. Since I'm not very familiar with rom hacking yet, I concentrate on translations from English to German and conversely. I'm always looking for new challenges. However when the current project is finished I can imagine to do my first steps in rom hacking though I know it might be a long and hard way. But before then I still do what I can do best - translations. I wanna dive deeper into the rom hacking scene and offer my translation skills if it's needed. So, in case any help or support is needed I look forward hearing from you.

Kind regards, Poe.
