The player must choose whether to control a male or a female as the main character in the game, after which they must name him or her. While the plot is relatively similar, the game will be slightly altered depending on who you choose.
The game is a remake of the classic Game Boy game Final Fantasy Adventure, though unsurprisingly the game contains elements from the Mana series as well (unsurprising since the developers of the game, Brownie Brown, consists of various ex-Square veterans who worked on the Mana series).
Because of this, the gameplay is similar to The Legend of Zelda though requires the player to wait a short time after using their sword in order for it to deliver more damage the next time you swing.
References to other games
- Moogles from the Final Fantasy series are in the game. This is probably due to the game being a remake of a Final Fantasy game (in America it was labeled as Final Fantasy Adventure, though elsewhere it wasn't part of the series).
- The game's art is a fusion of both Seiken Densetsu 3 and Legend of Mana. The graphics are similar to the former while the artwork is similar to the latter. Some of the elements from those games are also present.
