Breath of Fire I Review

 A RPG with a good storyline behind it all

You play the role of blue haired boy or man called RYU depending on what you want to call him as well in this  game you play the role of the Light Dragon warrior .

When you first start the game of with a good storyline where your village is attacked by Zog of the Dark Dragons.


During all this battle Sara trys to save the village or members from the attack by Zog forces she is taking hostage in the game but she turns all the village including the main characters into Stone when he wakes up and the other village it's being burned down more less except for like the village hall or the Dragon Shine area you can save the game from the Dragon shire or if you get killed you go back to that area which I felt was a smart idea to make gameplay more enjoyable than the usual gameover idea in many other games often. Breath of Fire II




Once the main part of the introduction is done you need to get to at least level 4 since you have no herbs or other healing magic or items for now so get to that level before you  head to the next town.

When you get to the town you will find out Zog has attacked the village and the king is outside the first quest you need to complete in this area make sure you gather all the weapons or armor you can to boost your attack or defense and collect the herbs to make getting through  this part of the game more easy.

Try and get up to at least level 6 before you fight the boss here you could do it at 6 maybe with enough herbs but 7 a better level to win here I believe so try and do that before moving onto the next part of the storyline overall.




RYU with Poison look  makes his hair change from blue to white as shown here




when the characters  get poison the hair will change to white which I felt was a very good use of creative to make the character feel older than he is looks wise by that creative idea to me.





The first boss looks like over size  Green Slime monster he is not hard to win against one heal from herb should give you enough to win against him quite easy then this part of the game is complete for now.




When you beat the Slim Boss you should reach around level 8 in all the tests I did so far into level grow tests which should make all the enemies at your current area become very easy to beat overall.


When this is done you need to wait until it's night then sneak into the village but be aware if a guard sees you get thrown out then need to go back until you can get into like the horror castle style of the building once in there just collect as much items as possible then you will find the boss who looks like knight he is kind of hard for early on the boss since he can heal throughout the boss plus his standard attack pretty decent as well and also his magic thunder attack can do a lot of damage to you may use all your herb during this boss battle so make sure you have at least 6 herbs before you battle him.
Showing  second boss of Zog Knight














You pass the destroyed village you made before and now enter a village called Wialot which has angel sort of characters in it .


Getting your first character which is called Winlan 
Winlan    screen showing Winlan at level 5 with HP 36 and AP 45



This woman is good at magic healing or attacking a bit as well but her physical attack or defense is kind of low plus low HP as well.









Winlan  with two soliders in the cave

When you get to this part of the game you really need the soldiers to give you the physical strength or Defence here if not you would get killed often unless you were at least like level 10 here to me.











Mini boss like the Grime Reaper

This blue Mini boss like Grime Reaper us fairly hard to take down and once you do make sure you get your health and other stats back from it from the blue water shown in this picture here also make sure your boost attack spell then it will make winning this easy.







RYU after flying there with the boss knight here

Shows RYU here after flying from the village castle with the red coloured flying man it is a good design display here like a lot here and the purple doors I found very attractive design-wise here.









After RYU beats the boss here  you see the word "Nina" name of the woman here and also you see red style of like 1800 centry Royal castle style here on top part of the building with a gray steps going down as well here plus like monster style of design around this

After RYU beats the boss here you will get Nina as your magic character she can heal you well which is useful when you spend more time on this game in my viewpoint.














Warhog  fight in Breath of Fire 1

Warhog to me looking like pig is both bit funny or bit dark that was big reason for why so many people still like SNES RPG since in a lot of ways they have amazing displays often on even the simple monster which often have good looks to them.

The monster here can be killed by one to two hits normally.





The boss fight from Pog he not hard to win against really just keep attacking until he dies level 12 is probably the minimum you can do it at overall I always found the boss designs were very cool to look at overall.

The monster looks kind of like a demonic cow for the bottom part of the leads and for the yellow part kind of like beard yellow coloured fur here with both a blue and Red Dragon style of heads here.









Zog Green Knight




For the boss coming directly after the one above he was semi hard but not to much but you need to get healed if your health is a bit low as shown here then hit it with attacks until you beat the boss then move on the next part of the games but getting out of the area is bit messy so have patience here if possible.






Shows part of the game where you drop down a hole to get a bag which allows you collect water to end the villagers turning into zombies


Graveyard showing up with Blue Zombie to the left of RYU and to the right be the old lady telling you to go down the hole this part does not take long to get what you need to complete this stage.











Cleansing Water Purified the Soil  showing in writing in the village





This is part where you see the village is now purified allowing you to get further in the game .










Showing the part of the game in the water where you use the tablet to into the cave sort of castle here


When you collect the talent which will allow you to cross the water then go into the next storyline scene here  and the graphics showing cave castle going towards the bridge looks nice from a delay viewpoint in my mind.









once the  tablet to into the cave sort of castle  will show up here

Once the tablet is in this what we see and now we can go inside the base here.
















Demonic boss fight  in the cave

Shows the demonic style of the boss it's semi hard boss but you should be able to win by getting Wing girl to boost the attack of both RYU and Bo make sure the attacks do good damage as much as possible while she can heal when you need to get your health  up to a reasonable level try and stick to at least 40 health when possible to stop you losing anyone during the boss battle once you win you get a ring to allow you to get further into the storyline.








You get 1200 EP and 300 GP from the demonic boss

EP  means experience points here and GP means money or gold in other games .

Has to be here again Amiga graphic style showing up here.












Zog boss with lancers showing up here Zog is green knight like normal and the lancers are purple coloured






Boss is fairly easy here just take out the lancers and the boss will be easy enough with some good hits here to me .

Secret of mana

  The starting part of the game you see the Mana Empire building in action used by the Empire in the past or present during the game the future screen you see is very well designed to me looks wise and the dark green and the blue lights on the power part of it look fantastic to me.  A role playing game released on the  Super Nintendo  it was for many people one of the world best RPG games since for older consoles it had many impressive features to name a few would include Dragons Cannons Magic Weapons many kinds Three main characters Special abilities Mana sword The dragons when you get the device to summon it allows you to call for a dragon which can then fly you to any location on the map when you see the map from the dragon's viewpoint the graphics look incredible for 16 bit machine which is very impressive showing the lack of graphic possible ways of the past it could pass in some ways as better than a decent amount of modern games for the graphic in some ways. https://www.game

Doomsday Warrior •Taiketsu!! Brass NumbersJP

   Controls really suck here even getting attack on a keyboard more less impossible to do here you would need a controller to have any fun but I doubt the controls would really get much better. Graphics look very 1990s here but with better controls it could had being like possible competitor to street fighter instead of like cheap rip of here for how it looks to me and most others I doubt it would had any serious fans unless they never played street  when they first got the game or had no other games making it's low quality seem in theory high quality to a small amount of people in some cases.  https://www.game24hours.com/2023/05/doom-troopers.html All the moves look very bad display wise to me.
