Personal review

In a country where humans and animals live peacefully together, an evil being kidnaps the princess. Your task is of course to rescue the princess. The game is divided into areas. Each area (consisting of about 20 screens) has to be played through in order. In contrast to most other early console adventures, the game uses icons instead of a verb list. It is also centered more about finding objects inside the screen, which is the main problem with objects sometimes not very easily recognisable to be able to interact with. Graphics are very cute and fitting for the fairy tale scenario. Language is in Japanese only with no translation patch available yet. All in all a decent and a bit "different" adventure game for the Famicom.

Editor note

Developers were self-compelled to amp up the animation and graphics of this game due to the talent of a new artist at Sunsoft that was creating the cover art for the boxes and labels of several of their games.
