Musashi no Bouken is a role playing game for the Nintendo Entertainment System. The game plays like Dragon Warrior, like any other similar games in that era. The main character was based on a famous legendary Japanese hero.
The hacking and translation for this game are both really great, especially when you consider that DW-type RPGs are a pain in the ass to translate. Believe me, I’ve been there. The readme says there’s still some bugs, but I got about an hour, maybe two hours into it with no problems. So at the very least, you can play this for five minutes and laugh at how cool it is before you move on to the next rom in your collection. I wouldn’t recommend it though. Cmon, the game’s fun!

Fun Dragon Quest CloneReviewed By: Klaviaturist on 19 Jun 2011
You could lump this into a number of other Dragon Quest clones that came out for the Nintendo back in the day. And yes, that would be appropriate but at the same time it is very fun with a fun translation as well.
Really what we have here is Dragon Quest with a sense of humor that takes place in a more ancient Japan-like setting. The storyline is really basic but that is expected. You are the son of some great warrior and go out on a quest to fight some evil dude. That’s pretty much it.
The graphics aren’t much better than that of any of the Dragon Quest games released on the NES. Battles are identical to Dragon Quest as well so if you like a fairly basic battle system than you will love this. Really my only issue was in gaining exp. I am old school but I have well grown out of having to massively grind levels to push a relatively short game.
The translation was great. Although there is not really much to go on as most NPC have very few words. But the dialog was hilarious in sections. Particularly the opening dialog in which the lead character makes a reference to wanting to get laid. Frankly it was the translation that made this a very fun experience.
So if you are old school and a Dragon Quest fan this is certainly worth the time to play through. If you like this play Glory of Heracles 2 as well. Another excellent Dragon Quest clone.
