Description of Dragon Warrior II for NES

Dragon Warrior II, known as Dragon Quest II Akuryo no Kamigami in Japan, is a role-playing video game developed by Chunsoft and published by Enix (now known as Square Enix) for the MSX and Nintendo Entertainment System video game consoles. It is the second installment in the Dragon Quest series (then known as the Dragon Warrior series in North America).

This game allows the player to control more than one character, and it is the first one in the Dragon Quest series to do so. The player controls his or her characters as they move in the game world. They can search treasure chests, talk and trade with villagers, equip weapons and armor, and cast spells.

While wandering the fields, towers, caves, seas, or dungeons, the player encounters battles that happen randomly. Battle mode introduces groups of monsters, which is an upgrade from the one-on-one battles of Dragon Warrior. In the battle mode, the player gives orders to the characters on how to fight the monsters. Once the player defeats all of the monsters, the characters gain experience points and gold. The experience points raise the characters' experience levels. This improves the characters' attributes, and they may also learn new spells.

To win, the player must fight many monsters to improve the characters' experience levels and get gold to buy better weapons and armor. Eventually, the player's characters become strong enough to make it to the next town or dungeon. This repeats until the player reaches the final boss and defeats him. However, the gameplay is not necessarily linear, especially after the player gets the boat. Exploration is a key component of the game.

The game offers a few spots to save the game. In most of the towns, talking to a king or minister saves the game. It also allows deletion and the moving of saved games.
