RPG elements bolted onto what is essentially just a Rastan-style platform hack & slasher, but it's a playable enough arcade adventure.

Such an interesting combination of a platformer with strategy elements. One of the more unique and fun games for the SNES and even today I would gladly play again.

Theology 101

“ActRaiser” was the inaugural game released in 1991, during the SNES’ launch window, even earning a coveted spot of product placement on the back of the console’s box. The developer, Quintet, was a small Japanese studio that started up in 1989, produced a small handful of memorable and unique Enix-published SNES titles in the ‘90s, before backing the wrong horse – the Saturn – in the subsequent hardware Generation, and ultimately fading away into obscurity. While not officially declared ‘defunct’ nor officially a part of Enix, Quintet just stopped making games around the turn of the millennium, though their IP clearly did belong to Enix, as is has been subsumed into the hybrid abomination of Square-Enix, allowing them to release an “ActRaiser” remake in 2021.
