Excerpt from Genesis Game Guide by The Scribe

NAME:             Beyond Oasis
RELEASED:         1994
TYPE:             Adventure
LANGUAGE:         English, French, German, Spanish, and Japanese

PREMISE:          Our hero stumbles across an ancient power in a long-
                  forgotten cave that proves to be the start of a
                  dangerous quest to thwart the rise of an evil which also
                  hearkens from the past.  A single-player RPG that comes
                  across as something of a cross between the Norse Eddas
                  and the Arabian Knights.

IMPRESSIONS:      A top-down Zelda-like adventure, with great character art
                  and animation along with Street Fighter style special
                  moves.  Not many enemy types, but decent gameplay and
                  great graphics. (Rage Games)

VARIATIONS:       The Story of Thor (all non-American markets)

One part Zelda and one part Street Fighter, Beyond Oasis is a great game. The graphics are beautiful, easily comparable to the best looking snes games. The Zelda part comes in when you have to kill enemies with different weapons, mainly your sword, and also when you have to explore great caverns and find familiars. These creatures give you magical properties and make the game more interesting by having you use their powers to solve puzzles that involve fire, water, shadow, and more. Now the streetfighter part is in that you can do special moves with the d-pad, doing cool sword moves. The story is about a prince who likes to find treasure, but you can find out more by playing it. The game's music is ambient and doesn't come on too strong. The challenge is great because of all the puzzles you'll run into. There's only one town and one kingdom(similar to zelda) but there's enough here to keep you interested. Just remember to read a faq if you get stuck! I highly recommend this game to any adventure fan, also check out the saturn sequel. I give it a 9.

Yes, I'd agree wholeheartedly with Hiryu on this one! A truly great action RPG game, similar in a few respects to Zelda, but has a number of features that bring this game into it's own. The fighting is great, simple but effective - you can perform a number of fighting moves with your dagger/sword, none of which are that hard to pull off (except one or two), this makes the action fast and exciting. Coupled with the ability to summon and control various elementals adds to the variety of the battles.

This game has amazing graphics (as far as Genesis RPG's go), but unlike a lot of games, this doesn't mean the gameplay has to suffer. Behind the elegant looks and smooth animation lies a deep game that takes quite some time to complete fully (getting all 60 gems is not an easy feat (? I think there was 60.. been a while since I played this!))

An awesome action RPG that keeps you coming back for more.. highly recommended!

I love this game...and the idea of collecting all the different magics is really cool...and this game is tough. On a par with Landstalker, in my opinion.

i'd agree that this game is some challenge, especially as some of the puzzles (like being locked into a tiny room with only Shade for company) are next to impossible! i would really recommend this game to others, but only if they got a first-hand second-hand version of TSOT has the save function broken, making the game extremely difficult to solve! i still have not finished the game due to this, but i will keep trying... there seem to be a few differences between TSOT and beyond oasis, like 'the gems' which apparently exist in beyond oasis. but still, a fantastic game. 9/10
