That's a giant map already! Pity they didn't design something for those empty spots, even if it was just something silly like a garden you wouldn't be able to enter anyway. I estimate that each room only takes a few bytes of mem.. missed chance for Xain!

There are only a handful of different rooms, so I guess it's heavily compressed indeed.

Yesterday, I have started mapping Level 2 and now I cannot enter Level 1A. Is there something I have to get in Level 2 to access Level 1A?

I fear you're on your own, one of the reasons you were asked to do Bastard is because the game's so huge Tongue

To be honest, why even try... Xain just made pure crap with Bastard and Deep Forrest.
I second that

I third that. And don´t forget about Mirai. Wink

BTW, Sein and Xain are the same softhouse? It´s hard to imagine a company able to mistype its own name, except for these two... "All your Base" looks like the Oxford dictionary when compared to the texts in Aramo, Mirai and Tritorn. Big smile

AFAIK Sein and Xain are the same, indeed. I'm not sure why they have two ways of writing it... quite weirdish, idd.

Perhaps one of them, one is a softhouse made with former employees of the other. Even if they´re not the same, for sure they have similar GFX styles and uh... similar story writers. Wink

I suspect the Japanese written name is the same, but that they decided to change their international spelling of the name. Probably first Sein, which would be more in line with Japanese and then to the "cooler" Xain.

Yup, as far as I know, both names are spelled the same in katakana.

However, did anyone ever finish this game? I didn't. I didn't even try. How boring those mazes are! Considering the fact that I even did a try once to play Guido's Lost in Plantinus (and I finished The Vampires and She Vampires even more often!!), you can imagine how much this game attracted me Wink.

I'd love to see the whole map, though (and if possible, an explanation about the object of the game itself) Smile

Considering complexity/intensity of Xain games, I reckon there must be someone here who has beaten Garyuoh - Dragon King.

I always thought of it as a pretty fun game.
Never got much further as stage 3 or something, though.

BTW, playing both Tritorn and Super Tritorn I got supermighty at every (looong) session, but there was always a graveyard which I never got out of!

[edit/P.S.]

Ever noticed how the '05 "playable" demo version of 'my game' looks a lot like Bastard?
Still I couldn't think of an easier-to-program way for such a game.
From birdsview smack on top of it! No things disappearing behind walls and such... No scrolling either. Smile
