Description of Sorcerian
Amidst the flurry of imported games that resulted from Sierra's deal with Japanese publisher Gamearts are Sorcerian and Zeliard, two quirky action/RPG titles with strong "console" feel. Definitely "light" games in that there is few statistics (although characters do gain levels), and the arcade-style platform action may not be every RPGer's cup of tea. Still, interesting plots, spells, and lots of "secrets" make these games above average despite chunky graphics.
Although both games are RPG with heavy arcade elements, Sorcerian has a stronger RPG flavor because you get to control a four-character party, comprising the traditional retinue of priest, fighter, and wizard, each of whom have access to unique weapons and/or spells. Zeliard, on the other hand, is a solo-player RPG with much less emphasis on character development than nonstop platform action.

While the game itself works without issue, I’ve yet to succeed in perfecting the Munt-Sorcerian cooperation. Unlike other DOS games from myabandonware Sorcerian has a bad habit of playing incorrectly when in MT-32 mode, using less and wrong instruments and muting itself every time there is a track change. It is a shame as the MT-32 soundtrack for this game is superb. I will report if I find a fix, though after two weeks I’m not holding much hope.

Dear lord, did you really have to link to The CRPG Addict? God that guy's a douchebag.

Cool game.. your characters age and can die. The action fighting is similar to star ocean and you can choose different attacks.
