Changes in Game Boy Color version[]

  • The plot has changed slightly:
    • Rather than the protagonist being the scientist that built the tower, it was the development of Dragonia (a.k.a. Draygon).
    • October 1, 1997 is no longer the date of the war.
  • There are 3 save slots.
  • Enemies are no longer immune to certain swords, but rather have different effectiveness levels. Because of this, some redundant monsters were removed in some regions.
  • Enemies are less likely to inflict status conditions.
  • Alarm Flute is an quest item rather than one purchased in stores.
  • Enemies have different gold and EXP values; generally they are reduced; Pricing for items and inns were also changed.
  • More clues are given about items and what to do next.
  • The field of view is smaller.
