Ohhhh, what did I just play? Maybe it's my copy but it skips the title right ahead into the game (with battery save); Musya was easier to follow

Managed to get to the fourth stage, but it sure is difficult at points; on the plus side it's more fun than Dragon View given Kemco's involvement

I definitely understand that issue. I'm surprised that it's worth much, though, because it isn't all that well-known. That said, Live-A-Live is my favorite RPG, Final Fantasy 4 (SNES) is a close second, and Lennus 2 is an equally close third.

Paladin's Quest is an old favorite of mine. I would highly recommend the sequel, because it's even better!

That's a pretty neat observation about Hyperzone. I'd missed Grasslands, since it's a fairly generic title, but I should definitely have caught Ripple Field. I at least noticed that Hyperzone was a reference to... well, you know. Great game, too, with a pretty cool soundtrack and good use of Mode7. A lot of those early titles made Mode7 seem kinda cheap, like descending to the surface in Actraiser; my lady and I always get all dramatic about blatant usage of graphical effects like that, saying, "moooooOOOOOOOOODE SEVEEEEEN!" starting with a low rumble and escalating to a climactic bellow. Anyway, the Redeemer Statue from Terranigma was a nice touch.

I have to respectfully disagree that Neutopia is a clone of Zelda; at the very least, it's not an accurate one. The first Legend of Zelda was an overhead Action-Adventure, yes, but what made it what it was was the focus on exploration, which Neutopia just doesn't have. I mean, yeah, each of the 4 worlds has 2 dungeons that you can conquer in either order, but aside from that, it's just paint-by-numbers. As much as it seems like Hyrule Fantasy on the surface – and the dungeons actually do a decent job of imitating those in Hyrule Fantasy – it isn’t like Zelda in any way that really matters. They’re still good games, and worth the time for most anyone who has a TurboGrafx-16, but their similarities to Zelda are mostly superficial.
To each their own
