I beat Dragon Quest earlier this morning. The game was pretty fun, definitely still archaic, but fun. I’m glad to have it down on my list of Dragon Quest games beat. I’m now working through the beginning of Dragon Quest II.
Here’s some things that still bugged me:
- The Return function only brings you back to the castle, I never knew how awesome the function was in the future games where you can just return to any town you have visited instead of backtracking all the time
- Removing a curse is a hidden thing, you can get cursed and not know where to go for hours
- I couldn’t find any item to heal my MP. Maybe I just missed it.
- Some of the games puzzles seemed to have no clues and you just wander around until you find the next path.
