ASM Ausgabe 12/1991: [Grafik: 9 Atmosphäre: 10 Gesamt: 10]
Shining in the Darkness ist mit Sicherheit ein guter Griff. Technisch gehört es zur Spitzenklasse, die Anleitung wird Deutsch sein. Doch entpuppt es sich als spielerisch nicht annähernd so gehaltvoll wie die Phantasy Star-Reihe. Liebevoll gestaltet und hervorragend zu spielen, ist es vor allem Anfängern zu empfehlen.

Using detox
When a character is poisoned, use level one detox. It works just as well as level 2 detox, but costs less magic.

Smelling salts
Always carry smelling salts to prevent your entire party from becoming paralyzed. If this happens, the party will be brought back to the village as if they were dead, and minus some gold.

Obtaining Mithril Ore
The Brikeye monsters will at times drop Mithril Ore after a battle.

Earth Hammer
After your character becomes the Shining Knight, a weapon known as the Earth Hammer will appear in the alchemist's shop. It can not be equipped by everyone, and can be only be used a few times before breaking. When used, it takes about 75 hit points off of Darksol. The Earth Hammer costs 40,000 gold coins and is not worth buying.

Carrying an Angel Wing
Always carry an Angel Wing with you, even if an Egress spell is available. Angel Wings do not work during battles, but may be used after a fight, or while moving.

Enter a name that uses all five positions at the name entry screen. Select the „Forward“ icon to display another character. Repeat this process to rename all the available characters.


Vanqish the fiendish forces of Dark Sol and restore peace to the enchanted Kingdom of Thornwood. Search for the powerful Arms of Light and fight the savage ceatures that roam the darkness of the Labyrinth. Use your warrior's skills and cunning to pass the test of the Ancients and become a shining Knight. A fun game with a surprisingly easy gameplay system for an RPG. It has only one town, but that town has one HUGE dungeon. Enjoy!

This is a story-driven console-style RPG, and is the first in the three game Shining series for the Genesis (followed by Shining Force and Shining Force 2). The Kingdom of Thornwood has been invaded by Dark Sol's men, and it is your job to vanquish them. You will need the Arms of Light to do this. The game is a first person RPG, with turn-based combat and cartoony graphics. The dialogue is displayed via dialog bubbles appearing above the characters speaking, although the protagonist never speaks. There are no sub-quests - the secrets in the game involve the location and use of special metal for forging esoteric items. There are about 25 to 30 hours of gameplay to be found here, before the final battle and ending sequence.
