Fray in Magical Adventure CD: Xak Gaiden

NEC TurboGrafx-CD - Released - March 30, 1994

The major difference is in the layout of locations and enemies. Some levels are entirely different, even when they are composed of the same elements. For example, the introductory level of the original version is skipped; the subsequent level has a different layout and new enemies. There...
