DESCRIPTION

[CONSOLE] NEC PC-Engine Game

Cadash © 1991 Taito Corp.


Cadash is an adventure/action game by Taito, conversion of their own arcade game originally released in 1989. The evil demon Balrog from the underground world has returned to the country and has kidnaped princess Salasa. The desperate king decides to send his best men in a last attempt to bring his daughter back, and to return peace to the kingdom of Dilsarl. The player can incarnate a character among one of the four types offered by the game - a fierce Fighter, a mystical Mage, a young Priestess and an agile Ninja. Each character comes with his own set of strengths and weaknesses - the Fighter is strong but can't use magic, the Mage is physically the weakest but can use powerful spells, the Priestess has a good strength/magic balance and the Ninja is fast and can only use long range weapons. Cadash features various role playing elements - for instance players can rest in small villages where they can purchase new weapons, armors and other magic items and they level up using traditional experience points.

TRIVIA

Cadash for PCE was released on January 18, 1991 in Japan for 6500 Yen.

The original arcade game was developed and manufactured by Taito in 1989. Each area in the original game had a time limit and a powerful Demon head would appear and kill the player if he/she happened to stay in the same location for too long. This feature was obviously removed from the PC-Engine version.
