WANDERERS FROM YS
MAKER: HUDSON SOFT / FALCOM
RELEASE DATE: 22 MARCH 1991 / 1991
STYLE: ACTION ROLE-PLAYING
A vast divergence from the gameplay of the previous two episodes, Ys III bears more resemblance to Sorcerian, with its side-view action. Control of Adol involves a button to jump and another to slash your sword - yep, no bumping into enemies any more. Naturally, as the game progresses, you obtain greater armour and weapons, and also rings with magical properties which is similar to the magic system in Ys II - although here you have a limited 'ring power' to use them.
