This was the first game i ever owned on master system (besides alex kidd in miricle world which came with a Master System II)
I must say at first i was put off, but only because i was ignorant of this fantastic game.
After i got bored of hours of "rock paper sicsors" game in Alex Kidd, i decided to give it another go. Slowly it happened my eyes became glued to my protaganist "Kelesis" and my ears hummed to the music as i led this brave hero though caverns and lairs and over land.
I had found my calling in life, to play Golvellius !!!
I was hooked, end of story.
This game had it all, not only did you explore lands and vast continents, but you also got to purchase items that ment you could go back to your starting points and explore even further onwards at points you couldnt previously (liked winged boots).
Oh and the humor in the game was brilliant. On a certain sector of the map for example, if you killed enough enemies, a hole (or cave) would open up and when you went inside, the little farie girl would say "Stop picking on the little cute enemies)
I'm just glad that this game has touched others in the way it touched me. I was kelesis, i was on the adventure to save the dying king, i felt it was me all the way and for that, i now love games.
This is in my top 3 Master System Games of all time along with Phantasy Star I and... i wont mention the other one, i'll let you guess.
Sonic the Hedgehog
This game represented gaming "Enlightenment" for me. Previously to "Sonic the Hedgehog" i'd only known of platforming games as something to play for 5-10 mins, jump on a crate, shoot a gun or shuriken and jump staticaly around. Enter Sonic, this True Blue spikey Hedgehog with attitude and game play up the wazoo! Sonic was a sexy looking game with lush graphics and vibrant colours (without overdoing it like phantasy zone) and yoru controll of sonic was super.
Sonic was fabaroo, get youself a copy ASAP!
Oh and by the way, if you liked Sonic on SMS you'll love Psycho Fox, play it today, in a couple of areas, its actualy superior to Sonic.
Hmmmmm.... Psycho Fox, those were the days.. *Sniff sniff*
Well i picked up this game for a very cheap price (as all i had on me was $15 - so i subsequently thought oh its just going to be a ho-hum game. NOT SO!. This game provided me hours and hours of fun. Sure i didnt want to play through it again once i clocked it, but what the hey, not every game can be like Sonic or Psycho-Fox.
