The Alcahest wiki last edited by Mento on 09/16/14 03:39PM View full history


Alcahest is an action RPG from HAL Laboratory released exclusively in Japan for the Super Famicom. The player is a young swordsman named Alen who must fight the minions of Alcahest, a demonic being that was sealed away a thousand years ago. The gameplay resembles other top-down action RPGs, like Secret of Mana or the Soul Blazer series. The player earns gains more health and mana (with which to summon the Guardians) as they progress through the games, and can attack in several directions. There are also allied characters that will temporarily lend Alen their help on specific stages.

While Alcahest was never officially localized into English, it received a fan translation in 2002.
