I played that game a bit with someone else when I was young (age 30). I got bored of it because the guy was being too competitive if I recall. Like I was stressed into leveling up or something. So I quit. It's on my to-do list for PSX game collecting though. I'm such a bum I have not the space to back up my backups if I get a bunch of PSX ROM's everywhere.
No wait, that was LEGEND OF MANA.
I have Secret of Mana but got stuck after beating that bird thing near the mushroom kingdom. There was a second boss somewhere but I didn't see it.
Also, The Secret of Evermore or whatever I have. It's like the same game dynamics. Then again i found it lame and probably deleted Evermore. Not the right theme though, it's cyber and not magic if I recall the beginning.
There is a sequel also, to this game. It was translated to English but never given to us. It is the third game, the Gameboy game final fantasy adventure was the first, though not very similar.
You should play all three. I got stuck in a wall once in the Gameboy one that is misnamed for the English.
Anyway, was that even two player? The Legend one was, but not the normal RPG one you're talking about, was it? It's single player, yeah? >>48698
