Yes, a good rubber and lots of patience was needed.
One of the worst things I remember were those nifty invisible teleporters sometimes ending in a location looking exactly the same so it could take some time and wrong mapping until you noticed that you had been teleported.
I have never played Phantasie (is it still worth checking out?).
Although I prefer top down rpgs until today back then we mostly played these pseudo 3D rpgs.
Getting new games was pretty hard for us compared to today standards.
Going to a store that actually had some computer games was a pretty rare occassion and we could only buy
what was available. Most of the time we didn't even know on the way to the store what games we would buy in the end.
