A new Light Dragon rises

Reviewed By: gnome_chomski on 20 May 2022

This romhack breathes new life into a retro classic, and is very much worth your time whether you’re a first-timer or you’re an old hand returning for your dozenth playthrough.

The graphics restoration work and quality of life enhancements are great (especially the new menu labels and equipment icons), but this hack deserves a special salute for the writing. The original translation is serviceable, but pretty stilted. For their part, Vivify really went the extra mile in adding flavor and emotion to the script and character dialogue, while still staying true to the “Breath of Fire feel” of the BoF II re-translation and the later PSX games.

This is A+ work that’s fully compatible with the SNES Classic and every other retro-box I’ve tried it on.
