More of these? I just finished replaying the original Legend Of Zelda, and Link's Awakening, and I'm craving more of this top-down action adventure gameplay. I'm already familiar with Final Fantasy Adventure. I don't mind some RPG elements, but I would prefer a more straightforward adventure game.

Such classifications are useful. If you need to look over a database to find more games that share a particular style of mechanics, why wouldn't you want the ability to sift through that database by genre? I don't simply want to click on an 'action' tab and be greeted with hundreds of titles that are only tangentially related to what I'm looking for. That's like walking into a library and insisting that all fiction books be tossed in a giant pile labeled 'fiction' with no genres to distinguish one work of fiction from another.

Gargoyle's Quest II is mostly identical to the first in terms of presentation and mechanics. It's supposed to be a prequel, but it seems deceptively more like a remake. This one also has an enhanced port for Game Boy, but it's a Japan only release.

Demon's Crest veers more into the territory of Metroidvania. You get dumped in an open world and have to backtrack to earlier stages once you obtain powerups that let you clear previous obstacles. Also a lot darker and edgier.

Neither game requires a significant investment to complete. Demon's Crest might be the longest of the three depending on which ending you want.

There's Adventure for the 2600 which is one of the primary inspirations for Zelda, but that's probably a bit too archaic for most people. Secret Quest on the same system pulls it off surprisingly well though, but then is was also a much later release.

Genre names are pretty generic which leads to arguing over whether Smash Bros. is a fighting gaem.

For example, Twisted Metal might get labeled a "racing game" which it's not. It's a "vehicular combat" which is more-or-less set up like the everyday deathmatch. If you imply categorizing it as a 3rd Person Shooter, which it is, you could start some massive buttshattering.

>> No.4764101


Collecting heart containers isn't an RPG element, otherwise the game would be called an RPG. RPG elements are things like statistical attributes and leveling up. If your character powers up by picking up a series of upgrades, then it's an action-adventure game.

>> No.4764124

Health isn't a stat? Hmm. Interesting interpretation.

>> No.4764457

>Health isn't a stat?

Hearts aren't a statistical attribute, no. You don't level up to increase them, you find a limited number of upgrades that can't respawn and can't be increased to any arbitrary value.

The classification is taken from tabletop games like D&D, which of course used statistical formulas. So RPGs in the video game sense of the term use similar kinds of values like hit points and experience points.

Insofar, Zelda II is the only RPG in what is otherwise a series of action-adventure games. Why? Because Link actually does gain experience levels in that game, although that's in addition to collecting heart containers and magic jars. Leveling up in Zelda II does nonetheless increase health (or defense power) in a very statistical manner.

>> No.4764490

same genre, different perspective

>> No.4764629

Explain an interpretation where health IS a stat. There probably are games that bounce probabilities for things like instakills off your current or max HP value but if you can name one that isn't an RPG (with XPs) I'll buy you a beer.

I think there might be remixed Secret of Mana music elsewhere too. It's a weird fucking game with a lot of weird fucking references in it.

OP did say he's after a more straightforward adventure game though, so Marvelous definitely fits. >>4766386 is right though, you could probably count the rooms with actual enemies to fight on one hand, bosses notwithstanding. Though there are a number of puzzles that are pretty action-based.

Not really. They play similarly, but Evermore was created by the American branch of Squaresoft and has little to do with Mana besides the gameplay similarities.
Not even that. The engine was done from scratch.

That's the No-Intro rom name, so it's relevant.
If I'm playing internet detective with a decades-old ROM, the least I could do is not to give away unneeded private information for bottom of the barrel puerile internet detectives like you, "anonymous" kun.

>>internal header = official English name
>Since when?
Since it's the only available romanization done by the developers themselves. The internal SNES header can be either in English or katakana, so them spelling it in english here is very much intentional and not even technical limitations. I went and checked the manual too and it has no trace of English (not even domain names)

Hence "official". It's certainly more official than Gun-Pro, ganpuru, ganpulu, or Gan-Poo-Lu (short for Gundam Pool, going by your fanfic theory). Try another attack vector to canonize YOUR pet name, anon.

Terrible. Unless you know how to speedrun Link to the Past then you are going to have a bad time. You take insane amounts of damage from regular enemies and hearts rarely drop. I actually ended up dying while trying to farm a single heart from bushes because a crow hit me. It's really frustrating when you get to the dark world and die just outside a dungeon and have to fight your way back to that dungeon without dying again.

Your example has countless other media with a fixed creator-endorsed official romanization. The people who made the packaging and game were not the same people who worked on the source material and came up with the portmanteau to begin with, they were underpaid Bandai/TOSE interns.

Gunple on the other hand:
1) has an official English spelling, just not the other Engrishy spelling you want to push for that's not any better
2) that official spelling was intentional, not out of technical limitations.
3) the developers were planning a US version.
4) the story and concept designer was involved in the development process.
5) the kana says ganpuRU which is very unlike Gun-PrO. It also supports the official English spelling.
6) is supposed to work as a semi normal, corny, diminutive male kid's name in rural 1890 America. Japanese-style portmanteau names weren't all the craze back then.
7) fan-translation used Gunple / Gunp (for user generated name).

What you want is "localization" to suit what YOU want, but you want it canonized as original author intent as well despite all signs to the contrary. You can't have your cake and eat it.

>> No.4801663

>that official (sic) spelling was intentional
>Gunple is the main character's name
Just admit you're talking out of your ass, already.

Again, there's a reason why Pocket Monsters and Family Computer have their famous acronyms. There's also a reason why "Gunman's Proof" is the only romanized text that appears with that game. Connect the dots, genius.

>>Gunple is the main character's name
>Just admit you're talking out of your ass, already.
Just admit you never played the game already. The game has a default name for the MC that is used when skipping the naming screen, and mentioned in the manual (in kana) but that's too much for your few brain cells to handle it seems.

You also think Ganupooruu is short not for Gandam Pool, not for Gun Pro, but Gunman Proof? Just because of the alliterative title? Wow. That's not a name the localizers of Ace Attorney would be caught dead using for one of their characters. You're even more retarded than I thought.
Normal translators look for the available source material if the developers spelled his name in English anywhere, and uses that, and so they did with Gunple precisely. Retarded wannabe translators want to name a kid "Gun-Pro" or "Mr. Gunman Proof", call it author intent and not have anyone laugh at their retardedness.
In the end, it's the inconvertible, unmodified JP game data's word with those 6 latin characters, against your whining (not good enough for your tastes or whatever, boohoo, cry me a river). You have an uphill battle ahead of you to convince everyone of your new naming conventions.

>> No.4802007

It's not only in the game's internal title, but in the VOICE ACTED samples that play at the title screen that took a considerable chunk of their expensive ROM cartridge storage. It's like they were dedicated to that "mistake".

It's literally GunProo (gahn-p(u)ruu), the same way "Gunman's Proof (gahnmahnzu purufu)" is pronounced in Japanese. Your anecdotal misspellings "evidence" cannot withstand scrutiny.

Sure bud, you'd make for a fine Treehouse localizer. That is, if even they were looking for someone to engrish-fy their stuff.
