Illusion of Gaia
SNES - 1993
Description of Illusion of Gaia SNES
Illusion of Gaia is an action RPG developed by Quintet and published by Enix and released in the United States in 1994. Quintet is the company behind Actraiser 1 and 2 as well as Soul Blazer and Terranigma. The game has light RPG elements compared to other games on the system. There is no experience system, rather stats are improved after defeating all of the enemies in the same room. Also, there is no weapons, armor, or currency. The game is a story-focused game with no playable overworld. You play Will who is trying to find out what has happened to his family. He develops the ability to change forms in a world inspired by Earth's history with dungeons inspired by ancient temples from cultures such as the Incas and Egyptians.
The perspective is inspired by The Legend of Zelda, but the gameplay does not feel like a blatant rip off. The colors of the graphics are one of the most vibrant on the SNES. The game has a high amount of text, but never feels tedious thanks to colors paired up with the characters on screen. For instance, the character with blue hair will have blue text. The music is as epic as it gets and helps drive the emotion of the story.
Illusion of Gaia will offer a decent challenge, but as you gain more abilities it will get easier. This would be excellent if remade for a modern system. Since the recent remake of Secret of Mana maybe there is a chance Square Enix will give that one a shot.
