Tune in next time for Royal Stone; we'll see if the game's sequel is any better.

Sometimes it's kind of a shame to find a retro game that's lowkey a pioneer, but at the same time hasn't aged well at all.
The JRPG fusion idea is pretty cool in of itself, but I also find it fascinating that you can recruit wild monsters! That's some SRPG Shin Megami Tensei business right there.

Literally! The Devil Summoner games have a lot in common with this, mechanically--only, like, executed way better.

Sethe(I think that's their name?) looks like Rika from Phantasty Star IV. Lol that guitar parody. Anyway, I'll be staying away from this one.

Interesting, I've been curious about Crystal Warriors for a few years, having farted around with the first stage back when I first learned of it. Looked kind of cool from the outset, with the decent (for the system/time) graphics, battle sprites that give an almost Super Robot Wars-ish presentation, and most of all, that intriguing battle system. Shame to hear it doesn't pull itself together very well.

Thanks for slogging through it, though! If nothing else, I love seeing games from this deep in a genre's bench get some coverage.
