Actraiser (Super Nintendo)(AKA Act Raiser)
FAQs and FAQ-Like Information
Actraiser was an interesting player in the field back then when it was released for the SNES. Combining somewhat generic 2D hack'n'slash platformer episodes with overview 'sim' mode where you, "Master", lord over humans as they attempt to rebuild the world. Of course, your people need constant guidance from you at first, and you must help them with your miracles and angel avatar to defeat monsters. Depending on your success, your people can find various bonuses in the form of extra lives and magic spells that will help you on the action sequences. A refreshingly different choice, if you choose to have a go at it.
