Be sure to use the INN to save your game and yes this is one of the few Game Gear titles that has a battery packed in to save your progress. It wouldn’t be fun to use a long password system you know. ~Luis Zena

Crystal Warriors

This time around I have another Sega title from their long gone portable handheld. Crystal Warriors is yet another of the few RPGs for this handheld. This one is an strategy title and a very simplistic one. It plays a lot like their famous Shinning Force series, and has a very moderate difficulty. At times, you will have monsters try to gang up on your weakest ally so you will have to be on your feet the whole way. Making sure everyone is healthy and healed is a crucial part of your strategy as your enemy will be looking and ganging up on certain allies to weaken you.

The game has different scenarios and once you get passed the first one, you will go to the town and heal up and hire new allies as well. Don’t worry though, you will gain gold from your battle so you will be able to afford quite a bit of allies on your way. Be sure to use the INN to save your game and yes this is one of the few Game Gear titles that has a battery packed in to save your progress. It wouldn’t be fun to use a long password system you know. The game has a very good sound score and the graphics are well, Game Gear graphics. I suggest you use your Game Gear with AC adapter to be able to play this game because it’ll take you a while to get through it. Using batteries is a no-no!

So that’s it you strategy fans, if any of you come across this wonderful game, pick it up! Ebay has the game for about 24.99 on average so hunting for it should be a more affordable solution(I bought my copy for two dollars last week). That’s all for this week, hope some of you got some retro gaming session ideas! Until next time!

  • This made me think a lot of games similar to it like Ogre Battle.
