Lufia: The Legend Returns continues the role-playing series first introduced to American audiences in 1993 on the 16-bit Super NES. The four Sinistrals have arisen once again from their slumber and plan on returning the submerged Doom Island to its former state, hovering high above the land. As a descendent of the hero from Lufia II, Maxim, players embark on a perilous quest to defeat the Sinistrals and their monster armies.
Lufia on the Game Boy Color features randomly generated dungeons and a turn-based combat system that uses up to nine characters at once (a total of twelve playable characters can be found during the adventure). Characters in combat are grouped together in three columns of three, with the first row receiving the most damage from enemy attacks. Players select one character from each column per round to initiate an action until the battle is over.
Each character accumulates Infuriating Points after receiving damage, which can be transformed into powerful attacks after finding Ancient Text scrolls. Learning Points are also awarded after combat and can be used to acquire magic spells. As players advance through the dungeons, they will eventually come across the mysterious Ancient Cave found in 1996's Lufia II. This version of the Ancient Cave features 200 levels of treasure to plunder and monsters to fight. ~ Scott Alan Marriott, All Game Guide
