Mystic Quest Remastered is todays' adaptation of the classic Final Fantasy: Mystic Quest title which was released for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System. It was rebuilt from the ground up and does its best to keep as much as the original as possible, while also providing a set of new and welcome changes. A true recreation of the classic RPG experience
Right off the bat, from the looping theme song to the graphics, Mystic Quest Remastered takes you back 20 years when things were much simpler in terms of visuals and gameplay but still plenty of fun.
It relies on good looking pixel art, exploring revisits the top-down bird's eye view, and interaction and movement are done using a handful of keys. The combat system is pretty much the same, with the exception that in Mystic Quest Remastered you can have up to four characters fighting together and the HUD layout is somewhat different. Equip your heroes with the items you want and fight the evil that lurks all around
Just like in the original, monster random encounters no longer exist and are replaced with stationary minions. Fighting them is easy but defeating them, well that's a different story. In Mystic Quest Remastered you still rely on a good battle plan and the proper time to engage because some monsters are simply too tough to beat at a low level.
Fortunately, your characters can be equipped with the items you pick up along the way. Potions and spells still play a huge role in the game and using them can completely turn around the outcome of a battle. Relive your childhood game in a new way or try a solid recreation of a true RPG
On a closing note, you have to play Mystic Quest Remastered to really appreciate it. Of course, for the true Final Fantasy fans some things might not entirely please but looking at the bigger picture, it's an honest overhaul of a classic.
To be able to install and play the game, you must have a purchased SQUARE ENIX title in your possession. You can visit the developer website for more information about obtaining a Mystic Quest Remastered registration key.
