Valkyrie no Densetsu/Legend of Valkyrie (1989) is another good one and it has 2-player co-op, but only in the arcade version IIRC.

Just saw the comment about Cadash. Want to know if the priest is any good?

She's amazing. Quite possibly the best class in the game. Not only does she have the ability to use a heal spell, but she also has a spell that provides invincibility to a certain number of hits. I'd definitely recommend a run using her.

My favorite 8-bit RPG is either Dragon Quest III or IV; the former is totally eligible for this run. Not only can you be a heroine, but your party can also consist of all females, so I say do it! :)

Good to know, I remember reading that the ninja was the best and that's how I played the ARC version. Maybe I'll try the PCE version as her some time.

Time Gal exists officially on Arcade, Saturn, Amiga CD32, Mega/Sega CD, Android, Playstation, and MSX (via Sony laserdisc player). Those are all the ports I Know of. Here's a video showing differences between versions: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rkk5upY75dU


My son has one of those Samsung children’s tablets that runs Android. He doesn’t use it since he got a hand-me-down iPad. I am so tempted to “borrow” it from him and turn it into a dedicated Android gaming device... :twisted:

Also...DQIII is the best 8-bit RPG. If you can play it for this challenge, you should. Phantasy Star is a close second, however, and since it also rules, you should play that too. (Phantasy Star II is pretty awful, IMO, and unless you are dedicated to video game history - like me - you can skip it.)

For starters, I will be playing Jenny of the Prairie (1984) and probably Cave Girl Clair (1985).

The best way to play Time Gal nowadays is the original arcade version via the Daphne emulator. But you guys. :|

If I close on the house I'm about to put together a buyer's counter based on inspection then I'll be doing Cadash late in the month.

I'm going to be playing Phantasy Star this weekend, but my first game (which I'll post about once I write up a little review for it) is going to win Together Retro on Day One.
