Square Enix started here, with this tiny, 8-bit RPG. You were equipped with the best spells and weapons that gold could buy, and a menu interface that was primitive, but effective. When you needed a break from battling monsters, you ambled into Town, to rest in an Inn, buy Items, and upgrade your weapons. You had a sleepy, sweet melody to relax to as you prepared for the next battle. No one ever said that restoring Light Orbs was going to be easy.
