Alundra is a 2D role-playing game where players assume the role of a young adventurer named Alundra — a Dreamwalker — with the ability to peer into other's dreams and wake them from nightmares. After crashing on the shore of a small island town, Alundra sees trouble lurking in the townspeople and the surrounding environments.
It turns out that after hundreds of years of imprisonment by powerful wizards, a horrible entity named Melzas has awoken and threatens humanity. The foul denizen attacks people while they're sleeping by altering dreamscapes and locking them in an infinite nightmare of terror to die. Alundra is the only one who can stop Melzas and save people from their dreams.
Developed by the same team who created Landstalker for the 16-bit Sega Genesis, Alundra plays like an action RPG. Battles are conducted in real time like Secret of Mana or The Legend of Zelda. Pick up items, push and pull blocks, and hop between platforms. The action takes place around the small village with various surrounding areas: caves, temples, forests, and mountains.
Each completed task leads you to your next mission — entering another person's dream to save them. Sometimes that person is chasing a loved one they never catch, or is surrounded by demons. The rest is textbook role-playing — enter a dungeon to find an item, bring the item back and unlock the next portion of the game. ~ Matthew House, All Game Guide
