''Shiren the Wanderer is a Rorin, a samurai warrior without master, who's accompanied by his weasel buddy named Koppa during his adventure. Together they are searching the land of the Golden Condor, where according to the legend a golden city is located. Like in every adventure, this will not happen without difficulties. Your path will lead trough a lot of dungeons and forests, all filled up with aggressive monsters.
Crossing the dungeons happens in a kind of live turn based system. Every step you take with your character is also one for the enemy. This is also the case for other actions such as the use of items or attacking your enemy. You need to approach the enemies as tactical as possible, because surviving is really necessary. Once you die, there is no way back. There are no save games to bring you back, no extra lives nor checkpoints that will give you a second chance. All your weapons, items and experience points will be lost! According to the developers, there's about thirty hours of game play and only the thought of losing every progression after making one small mistake is very demotivating.''
