Loved this game as a kid! It was so fun! I was about 10 years old when it came out, and I played it four hours and hours and hours. Once during summer vacation, I can remember playing it from breakfast to dinner time.
Magic? Check. Swordplay? Check. Amazing graphics and sound (for its time)? Check.
Fabio on the cover of the box art? Check.
I’m getting all nostalgic here — going to go play this in my NES emulator right now! See ya later!
