Finished Brain Lord (SNES)

This is a SNES RPG, a top-down action RPG with some puzzle elements.

Like every great? RPG there are two towns. Here called “Arcs” and “Toronto”. As this is a medieval-themed game, they would end up settling on town names that were something mystical-sounding

I don’t think the phrase “Brain Lord” is ever mentioned in any part of the game.

The game incorporates some puzzle elements which were actually pretty cool. For example, a room where some text on the wall says:
“12 – 52 – Although greater in size, its equivalent is the same in time.”
the answer is a three digit number. Maybe too easy?

Unique qualities:

  1. Levelless system
  2. AI pokemon fairy things that follow you and are a game mechanic
  3. AI pokemon fairy things that follow you and are a game mechanic
  4. Fast travel
  5. No love interest

Some people are quick with the comparisons to Zelda. Zelda doesn’t have a monopoly on the puzzle-ARPG does it? It definitely is a puzzle-ARPG though.
