Personal review
"Majou Densetsu II" is the NES port of the second game in the Knightmare series which was quite popular on Japanese homecomputers and the only one which was ported to the Nintendo console. The story is the same as ever. You, entering a monster-infested castle, trying to save the kingdom by defeating the evil Galious. The special thing is that you can switch between two characters (a male and female one) at any time. Each of them has some special abilities which makes switching between them necessary at certain points. Killing monsters will eventually increase you life bar, you can collect coins to buy and upgrade weapons and items, which gives the game an Action-RPG touch. The typical Konami quality is all there with good controls and audiovisuals (although not quite as good as in some earlier games). However I must say that I was a bit disappointed because at this time in the lifetime of the NES, Konami was the one company that didn't rely on overly complicated, nearly unfair level layouts and tons of not non-apparent secrets. But sadly "Majou Densetsu II" features all that. Without a map or very strong nerves you won't stand much of a chance.
