This game has been ported and remade so many times, I'm surprised if anyone can't finish it with their eyes closed by now. MSX, NES, SMS, Turbo Duo, Apple IIGS, multiple PC versions, Saturn... those are just the ones I've seen...

"Ys"?

Quite a strange name for a game.

...Is it any good?

First someone need to have a disc to play ... In the past, I only got the Ys 3 for MSX2 and Ys 3 for NEC Japanese PC Engine CD-ROM ROM system ...

Running Naked in a Field of Flowers

Wanted to get the not expensive Xak series and Ys I and II from Takeru, but for some odd reasons. At that time importing (after the liberation of the computer market on Brasil) MSX items weren't 'popular' anymore ...

Is the name of a beautiful legendary city ('stint on water' by a Demon) devastated by a demoniac entity ... A similar story was included on Ys 3 Wanderers From Ys. In fact it is not a "side-story" as most people believed, it is the Ys Legend.

Ys

Some people think that Paris (the City of Light) was named after that legendary City.
