    This game was released in the US in 2019 as Trials of Mana. Because that is the earliest official English title I changed it to Primary Title.

User Review Information

Simply incredible.

Reviewed By: Doomkid on 10 May 2020

The graphics, sound and player control are all so much better than in Somari. The only bug left that I’ve found is that pesky ring that doesn’t get collected as you run through the loop. If that lone remaining issue was fixed, I would call this (already amazing) hack the perfect version of Sonic on NES!
