Personal review

I have experienced better Action/RPG mixes than "Super Hydlide", which is a port of "Hydlide 3" originating from Japanese homecomputer systems. There are a couple of factors that make this game hard to handle. The weight system is annoying as is the time system, where you get gradually weaker when not resting in an inn after some time and the necessity of having enough food rations in your inventory. Other little annoying things are slowly moving NPCs blocking entrances, slow character movements, hitting with swords through walls and the fact that the graphics make it hard to see what is normal ground you can walk over and what is an obstacle. Speaking of graphics, they generally could be considered looking too much like coming from an 8-bit system and they can't conceal their mid 80's homecomputer origin. The music on the other hand features some nice and atmospheric tunes.

Official description

The Fairyland Council feared that the same evil in the legends was back again. A wise old oracle was among them. He predicted the second coming of evil. He also spoke of a young man who could save Fairyland from its gravest crisis. A young man was chosen to find the reason and source of the evil. As the people gathered to bid him good luck, they couldn't help but wonder if they had chosen the right one. What fate awaits our hero and Fairyland? Only you can answer those questions.
