Wild Arms is a Western-themed role-playing video game developed by Japanese software company Media.Vision and Sony's internal studio Contrail. Originally released in Japan in 1996 for the Sony PlayStation video game console, it was later translated and released in North America in 1997 and Europe in 1998 by Sony Computer Entertainment. It is noteworthy for not only being one of the first role-playing video games on the PlayStation, but also one of the few to feature a Western American setting and motif. The game features 2D computer graphics for normal gameplay, while battle sequences are rendered in 3D.

Taking place in the fantasy world of Filgaia, Wild Arms follows the adventures of a band of miscreants and adventurers called Dream Chasers who scour the world in search of excitement and fortune. The player assumes control of a young boy named Rudy who has the ability to operate powerful weapons called Ancient Relic Machines (ARMs), forbidden remnants of a lost age that resemble guns. Along with his companions Jack and Cecilia, the group must use their respective skills to navigate through the vast wastelands and dungeons of Filgaia and prevent an otherworldly threat from reviving their lost leader and destroying the world.

The story builds gradually, and though a bit confusing at times, reveals interesting bits of our characters' sordid pasts. Overworld adventuring is standard, but Wild ARMs stands out in its Dungeon scenarios, presenting challenging and downright fun puzzles to solve around every corner.

Wild Arms is a role-playing video game that involves the player controlling up to three characters, Rudy, Jack, and Cecilia, as they progress through a number of environments, battle enemies, and solve puzzles. The game is presented in a top-down two-dimensional fashion where the player has an overhead view of all the action taking place on a particular screen. To advance, the player must overcome a number of story-based scenarios and sequences that involve navigating through dungeons while fighting enemies that appear randomly. Characters progress and grow by gaining experience points after a battle, discovering crest graphs, finding ARMs, and mastering sword techniques prompted by various events in the game. This allows them able to battle increasingly more difficult demonic entities.

Progressively more powerful armor and weapons can be purchased for each character from specialized shops in towns throughout the world, and new skills can be learned to help the player complete tougher challenges. Special devices called "Tools" unique to each character allow the player to transverse otherwise impassable situations while not in battle. These items are obtained at certain points in the game, and allow hidden areas or pathways to be discovered, as well as destroy objects and solve puzzles. Rudy's bomb tool, for example, can demolish large rocks and other impediments, while Jack's grappling hook allows the party to cross large gaps and chasms while avoiding traps.

  Bonus Dungeon: The Abyss -   In order to access this tough Secret Dungeon, you must go to an Elw Pyramid (any will do) on the world map. Make sure you have Rudy's Power Glove Tool, which is obtained in the dungeon Gemini's Corpse, and that your characters have Bad or Worst Luck Status ratings for better chances at triggering this event. You must hit the base of the transporter with the Power Glove tool and step onto it while the screen is still shaking. There will be a chance that the device will malfunction (if it doesn't, try again), and instead of bouncing off of the Satellite and ending up in another Elw Pyramid, you will actually get stuck inside of the Satellite itself.
Welcome to The Abyss. This dungeon contains unique and powerful items you won't find anywhere else in the game, as well as the game's toughest boss. There is a device in the first room that will send you back to Filgaia from which you came
