I’m playing Dragon Warrior 1 (Dragon Quest in the East) on the Gameboy Color (the cart also contains the 2nd game) and right now I’m either dying or walking around in the dungeons finding stuff but not knowing what I’m doing or where to go. I don’t want to resort to using a walkthrough just yet but I’m growing frustrated!
I’m at level 10 right now (grinding and exploring levelled me up) and have an Iron Shield, Iron Chain Mail and Iron Hammer (I think it’s a hammer, the icon looks like one, maybe it’s an axe?).
I also started up playing Heroes of Mana for the DS, thinking it was an action RPG like its SNES counterparts, but it turned out to be a game I’d played before with a DS-based real time strategy with farming for resources, building barracks and other stuff, summoning monsters and fighting off approaching enemies to win each stage. It seems interesting and all, but I can’t be bothered to learn its system at the moment, so I’ll have to go back playing it later on.
