(Dandy - Zeuon no Fukkatsu)
Dandy is an action/adventure game by Activision and Pony Canyon. The legendary beast Zeuon has been forgotten by humanity for centuries and no one is aware of the struggle ahead. Time passes and the evil is about to return and Earth must be saved once again. The player takes control of a courageous warrior armed with a sword and a bow. His journey starts in a small house but it is only when he leaves this heaven that his journey really begins. A top-down view displays the surrounding world and the monsters haunting the area. The warrior can either use his sword for close combat or his bows and arrows (available in limited quantities) to defeat these threats. Some enemies also drop gems and other health potions to help the player in his quest. Soon our hero realizes that the world he is exploring is vast and numerous dungeons, towns and other dark places must be visited to complete the game.
Dandy was released on October 21, 1988 in Japan for 3000 Yen.
