This is the first lufia game that will feature double Sinistral battles that are quite challenging.
Right up my alley! I'm a glutton for punishment.

Right up my alley! I'm a glutton for punishment.


Me too:) I love challenging games and bosses. In my opinion, RPG games should be challenging, but not impossible.
2 Sinistrals at once huh? Fair, yet imtimidating. I hope our heroes would have learned some useful techniques by then :)
They will have learned plenty of skills by then. Tiara will have a ton of magic and other characters with a vast variety of weapons and IP skills.
I always over power level so I tend not to have trouble with bosses I still remeber that game had some crazy puzzels still think some of them were harder then zelda thats saying something lol
My plan is to make you level grind to take on bosses at some points. I know that people will grind, so I plan on making bosses medium to hard. I love difficulty because games are too easy these days. Here are some of the games that inspired my love for difficulty

1) Mega Man X and Zero Series
2) Final Fantasy III-VI, Crisis Core, and XII
3) Final Fantasy VII (Ruby and Emerald Weapons, Safer Sephiroth)
4) Lufia and the Fortress of Doom
5) Crono Trigger
6) Dragon Quest Series
there are many more, but I have always loved being challenged instead of having a cakewalk.

Lufia II did have some pretty frustrating puzzles. I love Zelda puzzles, but hardly any of them have made me think as much as I had to Lufia II. There were even times I would quit or go online to get a walkthrough because of some of them. Here are some examples...

1)Sword Shrine Puzzle :Red and Yellow Blocks
2)Elfrea Mountain: Flower Puzzle

1)Sword Shrine Puzzle :Red and Yellow Blocks
2)Elfrea Mountain: Flower Puzzle

The infamous Sword Shrine Puzzle. I first played Lufia II when I was 13, (before the days of easy internet access) and I got stuck at that puzzle. I gave up on the game and didn't play it again until after I graduated high school. Then I finally figured it out (without a FAQ) and was very relieved. I did well on the Elfea Mountain quiz, though it truly was difficult.

As far as your list of difficult RPGs, I'd say I initially had trouble with 1, 4, and 6, but I easily conquered the rest. Here are some more examples, if you haven't played them;

Phantasy Star 1-4
The 7th Saga
Inindo
Destiny of an Emperor
Breath of Fire 2-5
Xenogears
Phantasy Star IV was very difficult. The first time I played it was on sega genesis collection. It was the only one that could keep my attention. But, all the PS games are hard. Is the Inindo game the SNES Ninja RPG? I've also played Breath of Fire I and II, I can play III-IV on my Homebrew channel(Wii), but I'll have to wait until summer when I have some time(this is my Senior year in HS).

Shining Force II was hard as well. Thanks for the suggestions, if there are any more you know of, let me know. By the way, have you ever fought the Ruby and Emerald Weapons on FFVII? I plan on making the Lufia VI boss battles very intense, but they won't have a ton of HP and won't be nearly as hard either.
1. Yes, Inindo is the SNES Ninja RPG. It was actually ahead of it's time in several of it's gameplay mechanisms.

2. Breath of Fire I and II were good, but III happens to be my favorite of the series. IV was also good and while V was difficult, it was average at best.

3. It's hard to believe you're only in HS, yet your coding abilities seem to be top notch. I must be getting old...

4. I've played Shining Force II and it was rather difficult early, but once I got the hang of it I had no problems.

5. Yes, I defeated both Emerald and Ruby Weapon on FFVII. They were pretty tough, but there are some HAX setups with the Materia System that makes them relatively tame. I got a better challenge from Omega Weapon on FFVIII.

6. Destiny of an Emperor is an RPG on the NES that occurs in ancient China. It's based on the Romance of the Three Kingdoms novel and was one of the precursors to the Dynasty Warriors series. Battles can be tough, particularly late in the game, and they require more strategy than brute force. I believe that you would enjoy the challenge. I also recommend Rudra no Hihou and Live A Live (both on SNES) for some interesting, but difficult RPGs.
