Which is which? The version on the left looks best.

Yeah, the SNES version wins out on most of those screen shots. Was the PCE port release before the SNES port?

I like the bright and colorful graphics of the PCE version. It has that super colorful 8 bit style that I like so much about the PCE.

I think it was released a year and a half after the pce version.

The only matchup here I'll give to the Turbo version is the 4th set down-- where the character is facing the stairwell. The screens are nearly identical, save for the color choices. The coloring on the Turbo looks much better. In all the rest, the detail of the SNES version simply trumps any coloring differences.

No MSX comparisons?


I prefer the PCE one as well overall.   The colors are more vibrant .   SNES one was always a bit drab.

I agree. Not that the PCE wasn't capable of what the SNES is offering there, but the developers obviously decided to update the SNES port.

The SNES version looks like what the PCE version would look like if you were wearing sunglasses indoors while playing it.

There was a site (shadatannis.com, no longer up) that had a partial translation of the PCE game and also included a comparison gallery between all versions of this game I think.

I like the PCE graphics more overall. I bet the soundtrack is way better on PCE too.

Adding PCE console specific layer on top of that, makes for an interesting challenge (no, not a reference to Ys II).

You know, at first glance last night, I was thinking the SNES was better, but now I'm thinking it's not so cut and dry. The SNES certainly isn't blowing the PCE out of the water, but it does have some nicer details in some of the screenies. However, the colours on the PCE are much, much better than on the SNES, and even some of the detailing is better on the PCE.

I like the bright, colorful graphics of the PC engine version. I don't really care for the more neutral colors of the SNES version.
