The tiny isle of Ripple Island was once a peaceful and abundant land. But since the evil Groaker appeared, kidnapped Princess Nasarell, and proclaimed himself the Emperor of Darkness, black magic has begun to destroy the island’s natural environment. Seeking to end this conflict and claim the reward promised by the good King Dotella, a young boy sets out on a journey to Groaker’s stronghold north of the island…
Ripple Island is a 1988 Famicom adventure game developed by Tokai Engineering and published by Sunsoft. It’s a significant departure from the murder mystery and detective adventure games that dominated the Japanese market at the time, instead focusing on gentle themes, colorful graphics, and a fairy tale storyline.
This is an English translation of “Ripple Island” for the NES.
This patch fully translates the game into English.

Area 2 FrustrationReviewed By: knkn on 04 Oct 2020
It is very cute game, I’m very thankful for translation, BUT it was possible to add in-game clues for Area 2, there are a lot of useless text, I had to watch walkthrough, and only now noticed “spoilers” at ReadMe file, that actually is clues to pass impossible game design, as usual person I skipped water “it is our first game, we are very glad…” and spoilers.
I was close to delete it because of blind searching, but again it is mentioned at “spoilers” that it would be beatable next. I have no problems with translation, but didn’t we want to introduce favorite game to as many people as possible and not make them rage quit - it has to be fixed, better in visual way.
