(Dragon Scroll - Yomigaerishi Maryuu)
Dragon Scroll is an action/adventure game by Konami. Eight magic books have kept the three headed Chrome Dragon sealed away for centuries. These books were locked away in a tower located at the heart of the Zarik desert. But one day, three thieves entered the sacred building and stole the eight magical artifacts. Hence the spell was broken, the Chrome Dragon awoke from its eternal sleep and started to wreak havoc across the world. A hero named Feram is summoned to counter the beast and return peace to the land. Feram starts his journey with a weak magic staff with a high rate of fire but extremely limited range. More staffs become available later in the game - the firestaff throws deadly flames and the Madan staff is the most powerful of all but the slowest. Experience points are awarded after battling and defeating enemies who are predominantly encountered on the overworld map or inside dungeons. These points allow Feram to level up and grow stronger - this also gives him access to the more advanced staffs (as our hero much read level 5 to use the fire staff and to level 8 for the Madan staff!). Magic items are buried and hidden from sight and gives Feram access to powerful spells, such as the Rain Bell capable of unleashing violent storms. Dragon Scroll is non linear adventure game and features a large world to explore. A password system (using Japanese kanas) allows the player to continue an earlier game.
