Maria's parents have disappeared while searching for the mythical Ghost Lion. Daughter Maria must unravel the Ghost Lion's Legend to save her small world from an armada of monsters. Kemco's new NES role-playing game gives Maria a ticket to Dream Land, the Ghost Lion's kingdom. She explores her new surroundings in the familiar top-down view, and a menu-driven interface controls her actions. Hope, Courage and Dreams regulate her well-being, and can be increased by finding Hope fragments.

Several continents, dozens of dungeons and numerous bad guys await on this novice level, but lengthy quest. Dream Land's village inhabitants are helpful, and they provide clues. However, sprites, skeletons, goblins, ores, and other vagrants control the countryside.

Using her Dream ability and the appropriate sacred item, Maria can summon Spirits to backup her hand-to-hand fighting skills. Moja of the Spear, Twana of the Lamp, Centaur of the Sacred Cup, and others will join her team.

Ghost Lion's a good test for young adventurers. Weak music, nondescript graphics and repetitive combat need improvement. However, Maria's likable band of spiritual companions lends magic to this tale. If you're looking to cage your first RPG, take a crack at Ghost Lion.


  • Nourish the village's hungry old lady with bread and she'll give you a letter. Deliver the note to her son in Davis and he'll grant you the powerful B-Dagger!
  • Sail to the Pyramid of Alko and the Mods Caves to retrieve extra Hope Fragments.
