Youtube Video Description:

The second volume of Game Boy Works comes to a conclusion (look for the book this fall!) with a look at the system's first Zelda-style game. Uhhh… kinda. Rolan's Curse offers a glancing tangent to the top-down action-RPG, but there's not a lot of substance here — just the appearance of the thing. A brief, clunky, fast-paced, and ultimately linear adventure, this feels like a relic from an older time. But at least the dialogue's weirdly amusing. That's something, right?
