Aigina's Prophecy is a platform / RPG game. You
start out on a Zelda-esque map, which contains many
locations and dungeons. When you enter a dungeon, the
game changes into a platform game where you can collect
keys and other useful objects. You have to avoid
enemies, or kill them - this is done by hitting your
head on platforms, which produce plants that you can use
to shoot fireballs from. It's quite a tricky game, which
seems to have a bit of depth and includes a lot of
computer characters. I didn't spend a lot of time on
this one, but it looks quite promising. RPG fans should
check this one out as it may be a decent game. I was a
bit too eager to see how it ended.
Our man has finally

She climbs the

All is calm again :)

Who the heck is she?!
HOW WAS IT COMPLETED?:
I used a cracked version that allowed me to skip to the
SO WHAT HAPPENS?:
The end sequence shows our hero (Jason), and Princess
Laira entering a small dungeon. Laira sets up a few
posts either side of a throne and the Aura star appears
above her head. The screen flashes and then the scene
fades. A shot of the planet is shown and it slowly
vanishes into space. A congratulations message then
appears from the programmer on top of a star field
effect. The computer character cast are then displayed
one after the other with some short notes about them.
Finally the words 'THE END' appear and the game
really nice end to this one. It's a console style game
with a typical ending. It seems very much like a Zelda
type game on the SNES. Can't fault this ending - it's
pretty good. I should really have played the game right
to view more endings.
