Dragon Slayer II: Xanadu (1985)

Games Master - - Special Exclusive Feature! -

Xanadu is the largely for­got­ten fore­bear of many a gam­ing genre – chief among them RPGs and Metroid­va­nias (in par­tic­u­lar Castl­e­va­nia II). You tra­verse a sprawl­ing me­dieval world from a side-on per­spec­tive, lev­el­ling up, buy­ing up­grades for your char­ac­ter, and tack­ling lev­els in any or­der. When you go into the mas­sive un­mapped dun­geons (have a pen and pa­per ready to draw a map), the game switches to a Zelda-like top-down per­spec­tive for the com­bat se­quences.
