This is a horror themed action RPG for the pc engine. The recommended version is the recently released english translation on

This version is recommended for non japanese speakers and everyone in general. In addition to a decent translation, the team fixed a couple of serious game breaking glitches.

One drops your hp to 0 if you ever reach the highest level (instant death). I originally assumed one was intentional-like a stern punishment for overlevelers, but apparently it was a bug. That's fixed, as well as the inventory screen.

This game can be unforgiving in the beginning. I played this years ago, and was impressed by the music, and compelling horror themes. The opening grabbed my attention right away, and I knew I would play it despite the language barrier.

The game has no save or easy continue. Your password is the continue, so get one anytime you accomplish anything, or avoid hardcore mode until you get used to moving around and surviving.

This is a flag heavy game. Everything worked in initial and secondary testing, but please let us know if there are any unexpected bugs.

This game has a sequel on the msx (also translated) for the curious.

How exactly do you get a password? I played for about 30 minutes, died, and then realized I had to re-do all that backtracking. :P

Sorry, didn't notice the message you posted. I rarely see the forum updated, so I check infrequently.

To save, see the pic. (It's the altar at the church).

Just walk up to it and you will get a message. Also, make sure you psi charge your preferred weapon. It makes the game much easier than without. It's still hard, and you will easily get wiped out if you wander into the wrong area unprepared. Get a few levels under your belt, and things get much easier.

Save your ammo where possible. If enemies take more shots than you recoup per encounter, you might want to back off or switch to the knife.

Tell me please where to download rum with English translation and working achievements? I either have Japanese rum, or achievements do not work!

New patches have been added to the site. They are available on the RAPository thread. The proper target is now the headerless version, which is easier to find.

The patch on the Rapository doesnt work on the headerless no-intro version.

Also, the japanese version + the patch is not properly recognised by the emulator....

Can someone fix this?
