CheatCC Review: Mystery Dungeon: Shiren the Wanderer

CheatCC writes: "Mysterious Dungeon: Shiren the Wanderer is a port of an old-school game for the SNES. The way this game works is by starting you off on a journey. You begin in a town and from there proceed through many randomly selected dungeons of varying difficulty levels. You go through all of these dungeons exploring the terrain, fighting various monsters and bad guys, and talking to people you meet. The battle system is touted as something akin to chess, although I would liken it more to checkers. It is turn-based, but with a twist: everything you do counts as a turn and gives your enemies a chance to strike. Every step you take literally counts as a turn, and while this is definitely an interesting approach to the gameplay, it makes certain tasks impossible. For instance, if you run into an enemy with long range attacks where every step you take counts as a turn, you can't run away because the monster will hit you every time you take a step, and you'll probably die.
