Crusader of Centy
by NexTech Corporation
Just when thought role-playing games on the Genesis were becoming a lost cause, along comes a game that makes you eat your words! Crusade ot Centy was first released in Japan for the MD (see EGM #2). Through a wise decision, Atlus decided to release it here! Anyone who has played Part 1 or 3 of the Zelda series will quickly catch on, as the playing perspective is practically identical! Every-thing from the swinging of the sword to the scrolling of the backgrounds is beautiful! Though being a little on the easy side, this is still an RPG that's very much needed on the Genesis!
Zelda action on the Genesis! This is one game to rent at the very least!
This game was targeted for a younger audience in Japan, so don't expect a brain-buster.
How cute-looking everything in this game appears to be!

Think of Crusader of Centy from Atlus as an RPG with training wheels. It's not new or loaded with hot anime graphics. The sprites are reminiscent of the old Sega Wonder Boy series. The puzzles and challenges are as much physical as they are cerebral, and not all too tough at that. But it is fun. The button commands are easy to master, the interface is kept simple, and the story line is geared toward a 14-year-old boy. This is also a good title for parents and kids to play together. And you can't say that about many RPGs these days.
- Chop down grass in the training area to find coins.
- As soon as you have 20 coins, buy the power of sword throwing.
- You need all three medals to get the Holy Sword from the King.
