It was a beautiful morning in the kingdom of Thornwood. The sun was rising and a mist still hung over the ground from the damp night. Princess Jessa was attempting to make her father see her point of view. It had been a year since she had been to the shrine to pay respect to her departed mother, and she wasn't going to take no for an answer.
Finally, her father, King Drake, consented. He called his most trusted knight, Mortred, to his chambers. He told Mortred to take Jessa to the shrine, and Mortred did as he was told. On the way to the shrine, Jessa started questioning Mortred. He explained about the shrine, the surrounding lands, and the kingdom in general. It was then that she asked about the Labyrinth. He told her that the Labyrinth was the training ground for knights. It crawled with the most heinous monsters in the land, and any knight who could complete all the floors became a Shining Knight, the most respected and powerful knight in the land.
Now more than a day has passed, and Jessa and Mortred haven't returned. Knights had scoured the land, but nothing has turned up. King Drake, refusing to call of the search, summons you, Mortred's son, into his chambers, and he contracts you to find your father and Jessa. All intelligence points to the Labyrinth.

Great Nostalgic Game
My husband and I first played this when we were first married 24 years ago, before all the new machines were out. Loved it! It had a fun story line, colourful graphics and some humour too. Always rented it but could never find in stores to buy. We got nostalgic one night, a bit ago and found it on ebay. (Years later of course.) And we still love it even though all the other newer fan dangle machines and games have come out. It is like an old friend returning home. It may not be like the new stuff out but it was and is still a great game for its age!

Absolutely beautiful, enchanting, engrossing, and epic experience!
One of the first RPG's I have ever played on Sega Genesis, along with Traysia, this RPG set all standards and landmarks of what a RPG should really be like. This game is what gave birth to my overactive imagination and set the threshold of my RPG expectations for all upcoming RPG games. This game is a turn based dungeon crawler. You will not find yourself out in fields or forests, but navigating and exploring your way through a gigantic, multi-floored labyrinth. Perhaps similiar to the Wizardry games. Encounters there are random, like in Final Fantasy or Traysia. This is a first person view, meaning you will see through the eyes of what your character would see. The graphics are very cartoon like, making this very enchanting and colorful. The spells and spell effects in this game remain to be the most beautiful and epic even today. The entire screen will flash and move, making them incredibly beautiful to see. This game even today remains as my one, and only one, RPG, that I will remember for the rest of my life.
As a predecessor to the the Shining Force series this dungeon crawl was well done for the time period. It is basically a dungeon crawl that takes you back to the early computer systems dungeons. It's an enclosed feel like Tunnels of Doom on the TI (another under appreciated dungeon crawl) with simplistic battles. My major criticism of the game is it's a simplistic town which is not overhead but rather a side to side scrolling town with shops. While this is similar to some of the later Shining Force games it gets rather annoying to just go back and forth into he buildings. Graphics are pretty good although not spectacular. Overall though it's a fun little dungeon crawler that does get a lot harder as you go on and forces you to think your was through it. If you are into dungeon crawlers it's a nice little game for your collection.
Shining in the Darkness
This is a great rpg. For it's day the graphics are 10/10 and really still better than many of the games that get churned out today. The story is good and original, yes it has been done many times over now but this is from 1991. If you like old style games and rpg's then buy this game. If you do not like dungeon crawlers then this is not a game for you. This is the grandfather of the Shining series and well worth owning, especially at the cheap price this classic can be obtained for.
A must play, original.
I remember first seeing this game when I was with my uncle back in the 90's. It was enticing and remains so even as I play it into my twenties. As one of the landmark, pioneering games of its type and time, Shining in the Darkness offers a great storyline, game play and leaves you wanting more (check out the sequels) Wonderful. Big thumbs up. I bought it here because I wanted it for myself - it never gets old.
