Bahamut Lagoon (SNES) Gameplay

Bahamut Lagoon mixes RPG mechanics with squad-based combat.  The player can explore his surroundings, talk to people and visit shops when not in battle, only to a limited degree as there is no world map and no way to exit the current area.  The game’s core is its turn-based battles.  A party uses a special ability like casting fireballs, wielding lightning or using healing abilities.

The story takes place in the sky world called Orelus. It begins at the start in a world being consumed by war and the skies turning to the purple color of sadness following the downfall of the Kingdom of Kahna. The Kingdom of Kahna gets conquered by the Granbelos Empire, headed by Emperor Sauzer, taking Princess Yoyo captive and forcing the defenders of the kingdom to withdraw in defeat.

The brave Liberation Army, now with the help from all the Holy Dragons, including mighty Bahamut, fly the Farenheit inside the superior dimension, where they fight hordes of demons and their master, the most powerful of all dragons, Alexander. Alexander seeks to claim the powers of the other Holy Dragons in order to become unstoppable and rule over all worlds. The epic battle, on which the very survival of Orelus is to be decided, follows, and as Alexander is defeated, order is restored.
