Equal parts frustrating and amazing
This is a game that was in constant rotation in my early NES years. It's an adventure/RPG that has unique graphics & music, fun hack & slash platforming and just enough RPG elements for seasoned Roleplaying fanatics.
The frustration comes around an hour into the game where the player is required to be judicious in exactly what they keep in their inventory - because usually you'll need at least one of MOST things. You will constantly run to the town for more J keys, Q keys, or winged boots. It's fun, it's frustrating, it's Faxanadu!
