Reminiscent of the Legend of Zelda games, with quality game play and music. by Ian Reed11 of 13 people found this review helpful.
I know many people have not played this game due to it being in Japanese. If you haven't, you are missing out.
Also, getting setup to play the game in English is now easier than ever. If you're already using NVDA, just install the JGT addon and follow the step by step instructions in its user guide.
This game shines in several ways:
- It does a very good job presenting top down action in an accessible way.
- It does not shy away from game play features you would see in mainstream Zelda like games, such as jumping, dashing, pits, falling tiles, etc.
- It has the quality feel of a mainstream title, it is a very large game that paces itself well and has many unlockable skills and secrets.
- It has built in game pad support, play it with a game pad to get that full console game feel.
Here is the AudioGames.net forum thread for the most recent voice acted version of the game.

Interested in contributing financially to help keep my work going and my services running?
Contributions are very appreciated, and will help pay for the server that runs this website and the JGT service. Contributions will also be used to expand the JGT service to support more target languages than just English. The button below is setup for recurring monthly contributions. Because the costs of the services are ongoing, I can better gauge how much I can reliably expand services if the contributions are also ongoing.
