  This version is older than the Sega CD version, and plays quite differently as well. The characters are smaller, and you have no melee attack button, instead, you run headlong into your foes like in the Ys series. While the dungeon layouts are basically the same as the Sega CD version, they seem bigger (at least in proportion to the characters) and the monsters are different in a lot of places. In my opinion, this is the best version of the game made. The music, while the tunes are the same, is arranged much better. The graphics, while obviously not technically better than the Sega CD version, are much more colorful and appealing. Characters control much better and, in my opinion, this version is not as incredibly difficult as the Sega CD version. The only real \"downside\" is that the game is Japanese only, but of course, that\'s only a problem if you can\'t read Japanese (like me). However, even despite the language barrier, the game is simply fun to play, even if you have to do a bit of exploring b

  Actually this rendition is (loosely) based on the Nec PC-98 version of the game (the oldest of the bunch)and although the latter is older than Sega\'s Mega-CD version, this PCE version was \"created\" AFTER Sega\'s port. Contrary to Sega\'s remake this one is more faithful to the original formula, but it\'s far more charming than both. For those who don\'t like the \"bump on enemies\" type of attacks, you will be pleased as soon as you get ahold of the daggers (which you can throw a la Ghost\'n\'Goblins) or other long range weapons which you can buy pretty early in the game. Loved it all the way!
