The Game That Everyone Forgot About: Equinox – Game Mechanic

Well, mostly everyone. Developed by Software Creations and published by Sony Imagesoft, Equinox: Solstice 2 is an isometric action/puzzle game for the SNES. It centers around Glendaal’s journey to save his father, the Wizard hero of Solstice, from another wizard named Sonia. This is presumably explained in the manual because it sure as hell isn’t in the game itself.

Ultimately, Equinox boils down to exploring dungeons, solving puzzles, and fighting bosses. However, this is fine because it pulls this formula off very well. You get new weapons and spells in every “world”, so there’s enough gameplay variation to spice up your adventure. Watch the video above to see what I’m talking about in this week’s wacky episode of Game Mechanic.
