Sword of Mana Review

Black and white start of Sword of mana game  on 2022-09-01 at 13_47_06

Showing Black and white colours in the RPG of the past was powerful way to make it seem serious or exciting some of the time or show the past as well for why colour style was used so often all around the world.

Gladiator battle zone

Showing the Realm Solider speak before the first battle begin here I felt was a good idea for the best way to start the gameplay. Secret of Evermore 

 The boss you fight is like a monster form of bear for how it looks and is mostly yellow colour you can win the   fight easy with just like 10 hits roughly to take down the  first boss.

Dark Lord starting  at the start of the game on Bridge with the main character and willy and 2 knights

I always felt this start showing the Dark Lord with the knights was pretty to see and good way to show both the hero and anti hero together and him trying to fight the Dark Lord but losing interesting and powerful from storyline viewpoint

Girl Storyline start

Girl start scene  in black and white colours showing the woman as girl here

The story for the girl starts  of her being in the Mana village with the other Mana Clan members which include Willy the man from the storyline with the boy in the jail meaning the idea he knows the woman is true which I thought was a smart storyline plot twist to me

Once the black and white story done you will play out the story similar to the boy you will find him  in the same place the boy starts when he gets pulled out the water more less once that bit is done with him he will leave you short term then come back to you again

Am I the only one who has a bad feeling about this one

the messages the storyline players see or say is interesting to read most of the time since it's like in some ways you are playing the game as like a Hollywood movie from the 1990s before the modern movies all turned terrible more less.

The Vampire house is very fun or entertaining to play against the zombie or vampire like characters  is probably the most fun baddies to play against overall and the bosses in these parts of the game both fun and easy to play against .

You see the game as like the boy with the girl the two main characters from this game you can pick the boys like the knight or battle unit but the girl is like the magic character so if you prefer magic pick the girl to start with or if you prefer the fight then go with the boy here.

The story is very action paced overall you see the game in black and white in the past this was popular viewing experience to make the things seen more dramatic overall once that is done you wake up as a grown adult if you pick the boy in jail where you fight a monster like big  sort of bear monster once you win then you try and get away where you meet the Black knight with bob who offers you to join him and become a knight which you refuse then you go to fight him which you lose then you get knocked of the bridge then this rabbit looking merchant guy finds you and then saves you using the fishing rod to catch you then you can start playing the game you can pick combat level boosting I normally start as like the monk for max attack when you first play it taking down enemies like wasp are kind of hard so boosting levels important to make you be able to win easy overall.

Puzzle elements in this gameplay is sort of like zelda in some ways for example in the  Jadd Dessert you press button like sand area which is similar to how the Zelda games of the past or present from these games which is very smart part of it overall.

The game has in some ways like a maze  which is   impressive for  a  Gameboy Advance  system.

The storyline for me is overall the best out of all the Mana games for how fast-paced it is and also the fighting methods from like swords to knuckles or axes or other weapons change so much which is very impressive for Gameboy advanced graphics and the team behind this game put a lot into the storyline or the gameplay or the game engineering side of things to me which I liked a lot.

Night time battle means some of the enemies are asleep which can make killing some of the bodies more easy or fun but tougher enemies normally exist at night such as like the bat which can be deadly at the start of the game if your level is to low overall.

Swapping characters like the Dwarf as first swap from the girl is both fun and interesting to play with   you also get Amanda who has spear and has good magic and attack skills overall which is a good character pity she dies  so early on the game I felt she should have lasted bit longer in the game to me.

Vampire  boss Vinquette Hall

Shows you the Vampire boss before he turns into the boss who you fight after this part of the storyline.

Vampire  boss Vinquette Hall

You can only see the feet of the monster but you can find it yourself by playing the game fairly easy it's a very fun boss to play against my overall favorite boss from the game .

Once the battle done it is agreed he will release both the girl and his sort of wife to be the woman who when she leaves she then trys to marry the Dark Lord oddly enough but it shows you prefer strong men to marry overall.

The music Lester Amanda brother players it sound like high quality opera music to which I think is good thing to input into a RPG game  in general.

   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. All the moves look very bad display wise 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.

Dokapon Gaiden: Honoo no Audition

  Kind of like boardgame with like RPG elements, I suspect it would be fun for short term gaming but anymore that would get boring pretty fast overall but the graphic look  great here and the idea of adding in RPG elements to me is pretty smart as a whole.
