Fist of the North Star 5

Tenmaryuuseiden Ai Zetsushou

The first of the Super Famicom Hokuto No Ken games.

Made shortly after the Super Famicom's release so the programmers didn't really know what the new machine could do, so they decided to play it safe, and a produce a bog-standard, no thrills Role Playing Game.

The graphics are very early 16-bit. The backgrounds are grainy and undetailed and the sprites are tiny. The battles are highly comical due to its inept execution. They work the same as any RPG battle system but the sprites are large and they glide towards each other, give them a whack and then glide back again. Hilarious! It's worth playing just to see that!

This is really poor. Its also in Japanese so its probably inaccessible to most of the people who'd want to play it.
