Alundra is a 2D role-playing game where players assume the role of a young adventurer named Alundra -- a Dreamwalker -- with the ability to peer into other's dreams and wake them from nightmares. After crashing on the shore of a small island town, Alundra sees trouble lurking in the townspeople and the surrounding environments.

It turns out that after hundreds of years of imprisonment by powerful wizards, a horrible entity named Melzas has awoken and threatens humanity. The foul denizen attacks people while they're sleeping by altering dreamscapes and locking them in an infinite nightmare of terror to die. Alundra is the only one who can stop Melzas and save people from their dreams.

Developed by the same team who created Landstalker for the 16-bit Sega Genesis, Alundra plays like an action RPG. Battles are conducted in real time like Secret of Mana or The Legend of Zelda. Pick up items, push and pull blocks, and hop between platforms. The action takes place around the small village with various surrounding areas: caves, temples, forests, and mountains.

Each completed task leads you to your next mission -- entering another person's dream to save them. Sometimes that person is chasing a loved one they never catch, or is surrounded by demons. The rest is textbook role-playing -- enter a dungeon to find an item, bring the item back and unlock the next portion of the game.

  Manufacturer's description:

Between the worlds of light and dark lies the world of dram. A world where the rule of reason loosens its grip. A place where an insidious evil is stealing minds and blackening the hearts of those from the world of light. Grab a weapon and become the dreamwalker Alundra as he struggles to purge the evil Id of an ancient world before it falls to ash.

Explore dungeons, find monster butt as you weave between tense reality and nightmarish dreams to save the hapless masses. With a wide cast of characters and scores of challenging puzzles created by the people responsible for Landstalker on the Genesis. Alundra will rob you of precious sleep until you finish.

  Get the Legendary Sword -   To get the Legend Sword (most powerful weapon in the game) you must have the "POWER GLOVE" given to you by Jess. Then you need to die and use the "QUICK RESTART" feature over 16 times (this can be done at any time in the game even before you get the power glove.) After doing all of that head for the statue of KING SNOW which is east of INOA VILLAGE and use the power glove to lift the large rock blocking your way to the statue. Walk up to the statue and the screen darkens, if you have done all of the above correctly King Snow will pity you and give you the Legend Sword. This Sword should be your weapon of choice, although it cannot perform a charge attack it is still the strongest weapon in the entire game

After completing a number of your quests go back to the Inoa Mine there is a house by the stream, if u go inside and go upstairs you will meet Rohei. This great composer will let you listen to some of his music which is in fact the music from the game.
