Equinox is a cross between an adventure game, a RPG, and a puzzle game. Your goal as an Arabian boy is to weave your way through a complex maze of caves beneath a fantasy world. While in the caves, you have to accumulate tokens and keys to open doors to finally get to a boss. Most of the tokens are obtained from slaying Pac-Man-like ghosts and other bizarre creatures that have it in for you. Gathering keys usually requires well planned jumps and pushing objects around to provide safe places to step. To help you with these tasks, you will gather magic spells that can be used to heal, put the enemy in slow motion, and more. Wandering above-group will see you engage in random fighting while crossing vast amounts of land to get to new areas.
Equinox is complemented by an eerie soundtrack and simple, but fitting sounds. This is one of the first SNES games to use a diagonal 3D perspective, and executes it wonderfully with superb graphics for a cart. This is a fair game, but often frustratingly difficult to pass certain dungeons. Equinox will allow you to save your game frequently, which is vital since it can take hours to complete a single level. Equinox has a feel to it like no other game and will likely keep you coming back for quite a while. ~ All Game Guide
