Dragon Quest is a game belonging to the jRPG genre. It is a refreshed version of a title first released in 1986. During the adventure, the player takes on the role of a young hero with a mission to save the kingdom of Alefgard. Square Enix is responsible for the development and release of the game.

Plot

The story described in Dragon Quest takes place in the kingdom of Alefgard. Thanks to the Orb of Light, the land was protected from darkness. This situation changes when Dragonlord steals the artifact and the world is swallowed by darkness.

The player takes on the role of a hero whose task is to defeat the Dragonlord and restore balance in the kingdom.

Mechanics

The gameplay in Dragon Quest is extremely simple. The player takes control of the hero and explores the game world. Alefgard is constructed in such a way that it is discovered gradually, as each area is inhabited by creatures with different levels of experience. Visiting some regions is therefore only possible if the protagonist is sufficiently developed.

Combat takes place in turn-based mode and only in one-on-one. The protagonist can only execute four commands - fight, cast a spell, use an item and escape.

Technical aspects

Dragon Quest did not experience any changes in terms of graphics compared to the original. However, the controls have been improved.
