This title for the Game Boy was released soon after the first Final Fantasy game came to NES consoles in the United States, but is actually part of the Seiken Denestsu series. In the role of a captive gladiator who is forced to battle for his livelihood, the player soon learns of a special item which could bring him amazing powers. With nothing to lose, he sets out on a quest to break free from his captors and recover this powerful talisman.
Unfortunately, the special item is a pendant held by a mysterious girl who has been kidnapped by the same evil knight who had kept the hero as a warrior slave. The hero must find another special item, a sword of legendary power. Only then might he summon the strength he needs to face his nemesis, rescue the maiden, and recover the pendant.
The player controls the hero from an isometric perspective as he explores the Empire of Glaive, defeating foul beasts and collecting items of interest in a real-time interface. Success may often depend on choosing the correct spell or attack for a given situation. When it's time to rest, several villages around the land offer healing and gossip. ~ T.J. Deci, All Game Guide
