This game resembles Secret of Mana in so many ways . . . but this isn't a bad thing. That game had one enjoyable battle system; Evermore's is that with the twists of alchemy and currency. Alchemy was a unique system that required one to gather ingredients for the casting of a certain spell--the more powerful requiring much rarer items in higher quantities. This intrigued me to no end in SOE's heyday, and still conjures faint chills of nostalgia upon reflection. I mention currency because the fact that money types changed was, for some indescribable reason, very cool. It didn't mean much to the overall game experience, but its very existence was so unique that I very much enjoyed it. Finally, there is a shop relying almost solely upon barter in the game--you have to trade numerous items to acquire special relics that enhance you power or skill. This is a, though not required, helpful diversion and serves to add a little more innovative flair to an already shining game. This isn't the only source of these relics, but many can be obtained there. If an action RPG sporting a solid battle system, unique humor reliant on made up movies, and a diverse twist on magic are your thing, then this game delivers a 5 star experience.

Secret of Evermore is the best RPG I've played for SNES. The storyline's a little cheesy, with a boy traveling through different ages while managing to get in a lame B-list movie joke every now and then, but it remains one of the best games I've ever played on any platform.

The magic system is awesome; it's alchemy-based, so you buy or find ingredients (your dog sniffs them out) to cast spells. Plotline is straightforward and there's not nearly as much room to explore as in, say, the Final Fantasy series, but this game is great to play nonetheless. The music is fantastic and the battle system is just as in Secret of Mana (it's not turn-based; you just fight enemies as you see them without entering into a battle sequence). Characters are fun; graphics are pretty impressive for SNES.

I've played Secret of Evermore time and time again over the past 10 years and it still rocks. Buy this game!

Secrets of Evermore is still one of the best games I have ever played since I beat it ten years ago. There are only 2 characters in the game: a boy and his dog. You travel through four different worlds using magic spells created by mixing ingredients. While traveling through worlds, your dog changes from a big pitbull to a greyhound to a poodle to a flying toaster.I strongly reccomend to an adventure game fan because the storyline is great, the bosses are badass, the weapons are cool and are not too hard to upgrade, and the worlds are fun. You can also trade in some locations.This game is absolutely amazing so I give a shout to the makers.

This is the type of game to play on a rainy Saturday afternoon, when you're in the mood to quietly sneak off into another dimension and heroically save the world there all by yourself.

Or, at least, with your super-powerful dog.

Secret of Evermore takes you into one of these secret dimensions. I don't know if it's the fact that I'm a musician and serious music-lover, but for some reason the music in this game seemed to have an incredibly powerful effect, and actually set most of the atmosphere. The low occurrence of dialogue compared to most other adventure games too, as well as the fact that you only control one human character and a dog that only barks occasionally, actually made this feel like a completely private, very introspective game. The story was unique and interesting, taking you through the best possible settings they could have provided for each time period (i.e., a pyramid next to an archaeological camp, a castle enclosed by a peasant town and a lush forest, etc.); but you could also play this game just to relax. One of the great features is the ability to collect alchemy ingredients for magic spells, which can be sniffed out by your canine companion and then collected with the press of a button. You wouldn't believe how oddly therapeutic it is to do this for hours on end, while listening to laid-back, eerie, deep, or mysteriously distant-sounding instrumental themes that match your surroundings. The battles are also particularly fun, partly because they are not done on a different screen, but also due to the elastic, sometimes goofy animations of your characters. There is plenty of comedy and sarcasm in the dialogue too; I loved, for example, being told by a palace guard not to play in the crater created by my defeat of one of the bosses.

This game has been a favorite of mine since I first played it. Sure the alchemy ingredients take long to "muster" up, but that is part of the fun, EXPLORING! There are four totally deferent worlds to expore with many characters to interact with. The graphics seem nice, and the story is outstanding. I never played the other games that the other reviewers mentioned, but I have been playing games for over ten years. I would definitely recommend this game, even if you have to go to a pawnshop to get it. Come on, what else are you going to spend your money on? I used to have a dog that looked JUST like the dog in the first world of the game, so I might be a little partial. I only wish I could find a game VERY similar to Secret of Evermore for the P.C.
