ActRaiser (SNES) Gameplay

In the early days of Super Nintendo’s existence, publisher Enix came up with one of the most interesting games on the system’s entire line-up to this date. ActRaiser was the name, and until this day, fans of it have been longing to see an update of this ever classic that once graced the Super Nintendo. Of course, there was ActRaiser 2, which released on the popularity of the first but for some reason, it didn’t quite capture the magic that its predecessor did.

ActRaiser SNES Gameplay

Geared with dynamically engaging gameplay, an incredible soundtrack, and a brilliant new multi-genre, ActRaiser couldn’t help but attract fans of games like Sim City and Mario-style platforming with a dark-aged feel. The legend that is ActRaiser surely lives on. When you begin the game, you may be a little lost (especially if you haven’t taken in the story in the instruction manual first). You are basically an angel, you possess the powers to summon miraculous happenings in order to make lands prosper from evil inhabitants. You as the Angel, must fight and rid the six lands from Tanzra’s evil monsters who inhabit it.
