Fairune is an 8-bit looking action RPG with a very basic setup and gameplay mechanic. It’s simple to play and brings you right back to the nostalgia of the NES days, though this game is even easier to play than even the original The Legend of Zelda.

Find it too hard to press a button to swing and attack an enemy? Well don’t worry. All you have to do is run into an enemy, or have them run into you, and you’ll attack them and take damage. It actually works pretty well and makes the game a bit more quickly paced.

If you’ve played CIRCLE’s earlier game Witch & Hero you’ll know what to expect from this mechanic, and I actually like it a lot because you can focus more on getting around and less on constantly attacking the hordes of monsters which are everywhere.

The battle is about to reach its shocking conclusion — or will it? Based on the legendary game Mega Man 3 comes “Legends of the Blue Bomber” part 4! Hard Man is all set to destroy Mega Man — so why is he offering his enemy a free recharge? Spark Man won’t hold back as he sets out to avenge his fallen brothers!

Meanwhile, Dr. Wily puts the finishing touches on his greatest creation to date, meaning this isn’t the end of Mega Man’s battles!

The game is several years old but I’ve just gotten into the game, so I figured why not do a review of the game. But since the game has been out for a while this won’t be as long or in depth of a review. This will just be some of my thoughts about the game.

Spirit Tracks stars Link, an engineering apprentice ready to become a qualified train engineer. He travels to Hyrule Castle to receive his engineer’s certificate from Princess Zelda. Zelda’s adviser, Chancellor Cole, believes the ceremony to be completely pointless, as the Spirit Tracks that make up the train systems around Hyrule are slowly disappearing and rendering trains useless. This proves to be the case as after the ceremony is finished, Zelda secretly leaves the castle with Link but is only captured by Cole, revealing himself to be a two-horned demon, and a mercenary named Byrne. Alfonzo and Link are unable to protect Zelda from Byrne’s power, and Cole uses dark magic to sever Zelda’s soul from her body. Cole and Byrne then take her body and depart, leaving Link unconscious.

As the game progresses, and I won’t give away any of the story here, Link uses the train to get to and from destinations. From towns, outposts and temples, the train is remarkably fun to operate. The controls are simple enough too. You can control the speed of the train with a switch on the right of the screen (two forward speeds, stop and reverse) as well as toot the whistle of the train.
