Synopsis: This was one of the games that Square never got around to porting over to North America but thanks to the efforts of the Aeon Flux group, players can now enjoy the game. The game was made between FF2/4 and FF3/6, so the graphics are more cartoonie. The premise of the game is that the player chooses different scenarios to play out in the game and they range from genres anyone can identify, from cyber punk to fighting games to even a sci-fi level.

The best part is that no 2 scenarios play in the same style. For example, in the Ninja level, you can play it stealthy through the entire scenario or you can slaughter every living thing. Heck, you can even bypass some bosses. As well, I found that the writing was pretty good in some scenarios and had some decent pokes at the genres they represent, most notably the medieval level you unlock after the first 8 are done, as it playes like a Final Fantasy game, but with a darker plot. So, if you're looking for a break from the standard "kill the biggie guy" RPG, give this one a go. I mean, it's free! You can get a copy from www.the-underdogs.org , under the NON-PC section in the special collections part of the site.

Best Cheats: Make sure that for every character you play that you try to finish with the best equipment and levels as possible. You'll re-use the characters in the final scenario.
