Rolan’s Curse, known in Japan as Velious Roland no Majuu is an action adventure video game developed by Sammy and released for the Game Boy in 1990. Sammy released a follow-up to Rolan’s Curse for the Game Boy in 1992, entitled Rolan’s Curse II. Once the people of Rolan were terrorized by the evil ruler King Barius before he was imprisoned in a castle deep within the forest.
When the king many years later was released he immediately unleashed legions of regenerating monsters on the citizens of the land. Now a hero (or two if you play it in multiplayer) is needed to defeat him and his minions. The game is shown in an overhead perspective. Like Nintendo’s Zelda adventure series, the player goes from screen to screen and defeats enemies with a sword while finding items from monsters and treasure chests.
The player is allowed two items at a time: one weapon and one sub-item; picking up a different weapon or sub will switch out the current one. In the beginning, the player starts with a sword but can find a fire wand that deals ranged attacks at the sacrifice of attack power. Other items include a hammer for breaking down barriers and a potion for restoring all health.
The player can also pick up another of the currently equipped weapon to gain a temporary boost to attack power, or an armor jacket to raise defense temporarily. These temporary boosts return to normal after a level is beaten. More permanent power-ups come in the form of strength gloves and heart containers, which upgrade attack and defense respectively.
