The Speris Legacy is an action RPG created by Binary Emotions exclusively for the Amiga and published by Team17 in 1996.
Designed by Andy Jolly, and created by a team of only 6 people, the title is clearly inspired by the JRPG genre. Many reviewers found similarities with [The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past]. Unfortunately, the comparison with these big productions didn't help the game getting good reviews. The Speris Legacy is what we could call today an "indie game," with a much smaller scope and fewer ambitions.
Nevertheless, this title represented a big gift for Amiga users in 1996 and one of the few titles using the AGA chipset properly. Speris Legacy offers interesting puzzles and a nice story, challenging battles (especially with the bosses), great music, and excellent 256-colors graphics. The Amiga is not famous for the JRPG genre, but this can be a great choice if you would like to try something different.
