Title: Need Game Recommendations
Post by: xCrash242 on November 26, 2013, 07:08:01 pm
Hey whats up
So I seem to be in love with first person rpgs. Particularly Elder Scrolls Arena
I just love the whole feel of it. There's also a game in the app store called The Quest that's very similar. You can check it out if you haven't heard of it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aJgWPEjRbxg

I haven't played much other first person RPG's other than those listed and Maze of Fate which i didn't like too much because I'd prefer a smoother movement rather than step by step.
 
So anything similar to those for the emulators that come on the Dingoo i have this one:

So i can't get Dingux and all that good stuff so if you could help me by recommending some I'd greatly appreciate it.
Thank you in advance.

I have a few recommendations.: Shin Megami Tensei I and II (Super Famicom (english translations)) and Arcana (SNES), uhm, that's all I can think of right now... 3-)

You'll struggle with smooth scrolling first person rpgs on that system, if you like the old grid-type rpgs there are a few to choose from though, you already mentioned Mazes of Fate and the GBA also has Eye of the Beholder too.

Also off the top of my head:

Bard's Tale - NES
Shining in the Darkness - Megadrive
Dungeon Master - Snes
Dungeon Master 2 - Mega CD
Phantasy Star - Master System (3D dungeons, overworld map)

There are loads more, they are all grid/turn based though, can't think of any with smooth scrolling. Maybe try Corporation (Megadrive) but that isn't really an RPG, it just has some some RPG elements.

On "Hot-PocketSNES"..? Not likely. That thing runs smooth as silk for simple games such as First Person RPGs. It's the standout, open-source emu on the system right now son. 3-) I'm playing them right now. Not so much as a hiccup, snag or sniffle from the games I mentioned.

Not quite sure what that had to do with my post but okay!

Also the two games you mentioned don't have smooth scrolling. Arcana is a traditional grid based game with 90 degree turns and single step movement and the Shin Megami Tensei games are the same only with an extra frame on turns and steps to give the illusion of rough scrolling. Kinda like Orcs & Elves on the DS, that uses the same trick but is still grid based, not sure how you're getting them to run smoothly on an emulator when they didn't originally!

If you look at Elder scrolls arena you'll see what the OP means, you can move and turn in small increments as it's proper 3D (or at least Doom style 2.5D). Unlikey there is something like that on 16bit consoles but you never know.

Another FPRPG I like is the DOS game The Legacy, again it's step by step with 90 degree turns but it's really well done and is kinda like Resident Evil meets Dungeon Master meets H. P. Lovecraft.

Also not sure if you can get Amiga emulation on that console but if you can try Liberation, it's excellent.

Ehm... Does the Gemei support MEGA CD? What format should be used?
