graphics: 10/10 no detail was left out. the particle engine was wonderfully done, able to emulate rain, sparks, leaves, and more. The game has reflections, and the sprites were beatifully pixeled. perhaps one of the greatest things about this game was the portraits: each character has several portraits. the portraits often help tell what the character is feeling at times.

story: 9/10 a great story it is! ped xing, a wizards apprentice is sent to the land of the west to help save it. he later find on he has to help find 5 pieces of a scroll with the power to save the land. It may not sound like much of a story, but it's all the little things that really count. ped xing is witty, and smart mouthed. many samurai's are often arrogant and cocky. plus the humour! the game in no way forces the humour. it's all natural and realistic. for example:

samurai: "*hick* you want a piece of me?"

ped xing: "yeah! you and me, in the courtyard 10 minutes from now. be there in your underwear!"

samurai: "your on! *hick*"

or something like this:

old woman: "i yearn for the days in the emperors bed..."

ped xing: "please lady, spare me the gory details."

i rest my case.

music/sounds: 9/10 typosoft went through alot of trouble with this. almost everything, from the animals to items had a sound effect. you could hear roosters crowing, ped xing saying, "yeah!" when he found items, ped xing dying (quite funny), weapons and magic. as for music, it was so catchy that i was whistling it for hours after i finished playing. that stuff rivaled anything squaresoft came out with. seriously, the sounds are awesome.

gameplay: 8/10 what's there to know? arrow keys to move, space bar to summon and alt to use the current spell. simple enough. my only complaint is that when casting a spell, it takes too much time. to talk to people you rub against them.

overall: 8/10 it's a great game, coded in qbasic! (surprise!) check it out. you'll love it as much as i do. it rivals many software games.

Hmmm... Guest, would you mind telling why you just did that? Did you do it for fun?
