Aside from your initial familiar any monsters hatched at home can fight by your side. This is easily one of my favorite playstation 1 games. The purpose of most is to make another animu lady available for you to woo. Anyway, even with a plot that hasn't been used very often, the delivery was horrible. The tower music really shakes it up and gets a lot of variety, I felt each one made the levels have a different mood. The most famous of all monster hunters, Guy, travelled into the tower one day, but never came out. There is a store in the town for that stuff, but it sucks so most if not all the weapons and shields are in the tower.
I salute the graphic department for Konami. You even get to work on acquiring a love interest! What can you do with all the excess items? A friend of mine purchased this odd little game and decided to bring it over one day, about three months after his purchase. Koh uses a sword or wand to battle the monsters that patrol the tower in fluid turn based combat that is a more modern version of what one would encounter in older Roguelikes. Seeds can boost stats permanently or produce temporary effects. You got your monsters, get back up that tower and see what else is up there. Come on, they're waiting for you.
In the save screen, it shows how far you are in the game. Koh can also improve the furnishings and decorate his home. It would have been good to see this upgrade with your overall game time. For those of us who actually know what a Roguelike is and enjoy the genre, Azure Dreams is actually a strong title with a lot to offer, you just have to get past the ugly surface. The monster collecting, however, is the best part of all. You must have one of two items to get out, an Oleem fruit looks like a blue apple or more common a wind Crystal. How did you know I was going to sell a Viper egg, store? Fortunately you can find one-shot items that can not only tell you where the traps are, but can also where the treasures are on the floor, and the monsters movement.
Sometimes if the camera is at a diagonal angle, you can easily miss hitting your opponent with your attack or magic. Grab it and thank your good fortune. Fortunately, you may bring in pets that you found on previous trips to help you, and these little guys don't lose their levels. There is an item that will turn a monster into an egg form, but this is quite rare. And u live in dis town right? Even though it is great, it can easily get boring. As you climb upwards, you can find better monsters, because eggs only contain monsters that are on or near the floor you find it at.
Uh, I mean, they just come over early to wake you! Some will reveal the entire map or treasure or monster locations. And what do you do with the money? The other girls could have offered better healing items, a stat-boosting meal for monsters, or even a way to get money faster in the tower! The list is a bit small, about 50 monsters, fairly evenly divided for element they make up - Fire, Water, Wind. Many lines of dialogue are garbled and difficult to understand, especially in instances where Koh has to respond to a question. In town, you can do many things. Also, the happenings within the town i.
I wish all townspeople had this, but there are dozens of regular townsfolk who do not, even an aunt and uncle who have no picture. Unfortunately, Azure Dreams can be something of a grind, because most players will likely want to power up their weapons and familiars, which will require them to visit the tower dozens of times. And that what video games should do best. The characters are hollow and don't add to the main story at all, and even when you find out what happened to your dad, many things are left unexplained. Now that your character is reaching the age of an adult, he wants to set off to find out what happened to his father, and to discover the magic eggs and treasure, and the top of the tower for yourselves! The sword is to kill any monsters that approach you while you are duplicating. I wish the end was done a little better, its not disappointing or anything, but, again, like the date aspect, it feels it could use a bit of polish. Some music in the tower is really annoying, but a couple are really catchy.
Azure Dreams revolves around a town called Monsbaia, which you help develop, and a huge nearby tower called the Tower of Monsters. And we were halfway done with the beginning of the game before we realized you could throw things by pressing two buttons together. If only other titles took notes on this… Imagine explaining this to someone who walks into the room. The grammar is also terrible and not in an informal English sort of way. So it's a little more repetitive than the usual roguelike. I really liked this story and I give much props to Konamis story director. Don't you want to read the monster book? But some monster types do show more potential than others, and maybe you just can't find their eggs.
Also the main character is a complete and utter moron in terms of looks and act. So much so that I encountered more myths and rumors surrounding various aspects of this title than I have any other game. Azure Dreams definitely looks like it was at least influenced by the aesthetics of the Suikoden world, however. There is a main arc about your lost dad, and the game gives you that at the beginning, when you meet your first familiar, some of the people talk about him. You can also fuse monsters to create overpowered beasts. The monster book graphics were also redone. In the summer of 1998 they followed that up with Azure Dreams, a dungeon crawler.
This system is incredibly deep and worth digging into as your familiars are the ones that will carry you to the top. You could be several floors up from your last milestone, doing so good, and step on the infamous monster trap and you're done for. Without that factor is what caused Azure Dreams to become boring. The tower is comprised of 40 levels in total. While the dull earthy tones used for Monsbaiya are fitting and contrast the tower nicely, the town is far from pretty, even after the player builds it up. However, my persistence finally convinced him to lend it to me. Well, it got more than 50 monster which are call.
This career is a monster hunter which simply explores into the tower finding hidden treasures and goods to sell at town or to keep for themselves. Azure Dreams clearly wears many hats, and while some fit better than others, its a lot to do and take in. The thing is that you can only have a maximum of 2 monsters accompanying you in the tower, so what are you going to do? If thats your only pet, you may be in for a world of hurt. . . Now there is the item in your inventory and in the Manovas too.
