Black Matrix Zero Epilogue: Other Paths and Dead Ends

Well, I answered no to the first question, and Luca wandered off. And now Mephisto has given Cain birdy wings instead of batty wings. But that's all. Two or three more fights in and nothing else much has changed. So what I'm going to do next for the hell of it is take a brief look at the translated ROM and see what the hell was actually going on.

Except the translated ROM only translated menus, and not all of those. Well then.

So here we are at the end of Black Matrix Zero. For one thing it's nice that it didn't take us six months. But really, it's not a bad little game. There's some interesting ideas here in the combat system, and I would love to actually know what the hell was going on and why we were talking about incest all the Goddamn time.

Overall, it's only a moderately difficult flail. If you like Tactics-type games, you could certainly do worse on the GBA (Sadly, one of the worse games is Tactics Ogre, but that's what you get for not having Matsuno on board.) Give it a shot!

Tomorrow: Isstvan82 starts a new GBA game with a special video, and it's one of our oddest titles yet!
