Dragon Slayer - Players Guide

Post by Riddler » Thu May 11, 2017 4:42 pm

I have recently discovered a nice remake of the pc88/msx game on the Sega Saturn.

Of course its a japan only release but totally playable as no text or npc dialogue

i thought i would document how to play it as there are no guides on this Saturn version that i could find.

i have learned how all the items work, how to level up and enemy stats but i would like to know what the enemy names are as they are not in the manual.

if anybody knows their names (maybe from the pc88 or msx version) please et me know.

here are some pics of them...

Many thanks

Can I just say, thank you for making this thread!

I had no clue that Dragon Slayer was on the Saturn, I knew about Falcom Classics but to this day I never bothered researching since I'm not he biggest YS fan.

Loved the Game Boy port, as bad as it was! I played it over and over for hours to see how far I could go. It was addictive.

Glad there is a Saturn version! Looking into picking this up soon :mrgreen:

Level up your character (HP, EX, MP and ST) by killing enemies, collecting powerstones and gold and returning them to your house.

Find and kill the 3 headed dragon.

Once the 3 dragon heads are destroyed, the four surrounding chests with send 4 colored crowns throughout the map.

Find the crowns and return them home to move to the next phase (level).

Once a new phase (level) begins, your stats are reset.

1) Powerstone
increases ST by 5000 when returned home

2) Gold Coin
increases HP by 500 when returned home

3) Magic Potion
Increases EX by 1500
Increases MP by 1
Some magic powers cost 1 MP when used

4) Ring
Move walls by pushing
Move house by pushing

5) Key
opens chests

6) Cross
Nullifies damage from enemies (except dragon)

returning to the house restores your HP to the same level as your EX
HP will max out at 999,999

Killing enemies builds up your EX level
EX will max out at 999,999

EX level needed for magic unlocks
0000= Jump (quick teleport to random location)
2000 = Return (teleport to house)
3000 = Map (costs 1MP each time map is viewed)
5000 = Break (destroy walls, does not cost any MP)
10,000 = Kick (kill enemies with walls like in pengo)
20,000= Freeze (traps an enemy in block of ice)
25,000= Flash (causes a few seconds of paralysis to enemies)
50,000= Fly (tranform into bird and fly fast for a few seconds)

You can walk diagonally through walls that are staggered
Dragon is located in bottom right section of map
