Many thanks! I do love Japanese gamers' devotion to old Falcom titles - it's the only way I got anywhere in Dragon Slayer, Romancia and Dinosaur. I wish it had Brandish 4 though - it's the one I've played the most of and I'm stuck in two of the scenarios...
Brandish is an overhead dungeon crawler. The first installment was ported by Koei and released in America for the SNES. It's a bit weird, because instead of your character turning left and right, you're always facing upward and the background rotates around you. Very disorienting.
Well... no. All the saves where at the last boss already.
Until I remembered the awesome warp magic the game has, with it I was able to warp to the start of each floor all the way down to the ruins area. So here are saves for each part of the game: the last level of the ruins, the foot of the tower, the tower top, caves, dark zone, fortress, last boss, good ending and the hidden soundtest. The ending has some pretty nice artwork so you might want to check that out. I enclosed a cheat file with an infinite magic cheat in case you want to use the warp magic yourself for something.

Many thanks. Just how the hell did you have the patience to beat that last boss? I swear to God, the person who thought boss battles were a good idea in the Brandish games should be shot. They're better in the later games, but they're still clunky beyond all belief.
As one might gather, they put some extra clothing on the chick with the big rack for the American release. She was barely wearing anything originally. But that's nothing compared to the crazy muscle chick from the third game. The first shot of her in the intro is merely a close up of her ass in a thong.
Anyway, it's not done, but my current progress is here:
I still need to write up more and grab pics for Brandish 4. Plus I thought I had an ISO for the PCE version and...I don't. So I bought one off eBay for like $3. Should be another week until it gets here, but until then, I'm not putting this up officially. Need to add MP3s too. The SFC Brandish 2 is particular has some very nice music.
