Legend of the Prince is a pretty short RPG. I completed the game in about 4 days following the walkthrough. Of course, I cheated by editing the characters' levels so that I could win the battles easily. That made it into a pure adventure game.
|Legend of the Prince is the literal translation from its Chinese name, Wang2 zi3 chuan2 qi2. However, the official (?) English name is Romancing Prince.|
Runs at a lowly 320x200 res. It was quite pretty for its time.
The game will crash if I switch focus out of DOSBox. I wonder if it is a DOSBox bug or a game bug.
There is also no sound effect.
|The inventory screen.|
The battle screen. It is turn-based.
You don't encounter enemies in towns and on the main paths.
|A rare cut scene.|
|You get your full complement of crew towards 3/4 mark of the game.|
|You are allowed to explore the entire map. All the items are also available right from the start — just that you cannot afford them yet.|
|I prefer to fight than use magic.|
|You cannot see into the house from outside.|
|The roof cuts away automatically when you enter the house.|
|Once you pass this treasure to the person seeking it, you are forced to go to the palace to face your final enemy. Thus, equip before completing this quest.|
What you need to equip to survive the final battle.
You need extremely good defense, magic spells and some magic potions.
|Your opponents in the final battle.|
I have good memories of the game. However, I don't really enjoy it now. I believe it is due to the lack of sound and the cumbersome battle system. (I don't want to fight; I just want to advance the plot.)
