October 31 1997, global warfare erupts that destroys most of the earth. To put an end to the warlike ways, a group of scientists build a tower in the sky operated by a computer. People try to rebuild, and society reconstructed resembled a blend of fallen technocracy, classical mythology, and medieval tales of knights, while outside the walled or otherwise guarded towns are strange mutations like anthropoid tigers, and machines sent by an out-of-control computer in the tower. One of the scientists, Mesia, has been taken out of a cryogenic freeze, and has scattered four swords, representing wind, fire, water, and thunder, which are the shattered components of Crystalis. These are taken by vampiric creatures soon after she hides them. Another scientist is revived, and bursts out of a cave.

This game is a bit of a combination of Zelda and the later game Secret of Mana.

I used to rent this particular game constantly when I was younger as I absolutely loved it. The game has you as a young man frozen in a type of cryogenic capsule. You are awakened to a new type of world as the previous world was ravaged by a terrible war. This world has its towns and its citizens, but it also has strange monsters roaming the land and there is a strange being trying to rule over this new land. Your character must collect powerful swords to combat the evil through each region while trying to solve the mysteries of the strange all powerful foe. I enjoyed this game as it had towns to visit and characters to talk to. The fighting is a bit like Zelda as you traverse over worlds and dungeons using a combination of swordplay and magic to dispatch the monsters that line your path. This one also has a good deal of grinding to it, which can be a bit annoying, however not to bad. There are numerous environments to go through as you go through simple fields, snowy mountains and you even ride on a dolphin in the open sea. You also accumulate magic that helps you enter certain areas as at one point you must turn your character into a female to enter an all female village. One of the better games released on the first Nintendo system that was a role playing game and one I enjoyed many times as a youth.
