North American box art.

ActRaiser is multi-genre game with a fantasy theme developed by Quintet and published by Enix on 1990-12-16. The game has two modes, one section plays as a real-time strategy where you build a city while fighting monsters, the other mode is an action platformer hack-and-slash.

I never played the game when it came out, but I saw it highly ranked online and decided to try it out. I took awhile to get down the boss battles, but I eventually beat the game, and enjoyed it.

Status

I own this game, have beaten it on standard difficulty.
