So when you say you're playing King's Field are you playing the game called King's Field or the other game called King's Field??

I’m playing the original, Japanese King’s Field using a fan translation. The graphics and animation are VERY primitive, but the game is nonetheless quite engaging. (Also, everything about it is so cryptic, I am not sure the translation is entirely necessary.) I’m on the second floor of the King’s Cemetery now, and the game’s moving along now. Unlike later games, the enemies respawn; so, you can actually grind a bit for golf and experience. This also means that you don’t have to kill everything to ensure you’re leveled appropriately. (I got back into the rhythm of King’s Field combat pretty quickly, though; so, I still kill everything in my path.)

Again, these games really need a re-release or remake. If you fixed a few issues (i.e., control scheme, turning speed, and MP regeneration) and updated the graphics, the outstanding atmosphere, dungeon design, and basic mechanics would really shine through.
