A Diamond in the Rough
The game cartridge arrived in great condition! The internal battery needed replacement (which was a fun experience in itself), but afterwards, everything worked perfectly!
As for the game itself, it is a sequel to Solstice: Quest for the Staff of Demnos. You take control of Glendaal, son of Shadax, the wizard and protagonist of Solstice. You will explore a total of eight sprawling dungeons - each with unique design, music, and atmosphere - to collect the twelve tokens scattered throughout in order to summon and defeat the guardians hindering your progress.
The puzzles can be infuriating at times (the later dungeons in particular can be a real pain), and the ending is a bit lackluster, but the satisfaction of finishing a game like Equinox is more than worth it in my opinion. If you're looking for a decent adventure-puzzler, I'd definitely recommend this game.
