Year introduced 1984
Genre(s) RPG

Hydlide is a series of games developed by T&E Soft. The first game was originally released for the NEC PC-6001 and NEC PC-8801 computers in 1984, in Japan only; an MSX release came the following year. A Famicom version was first released under the name Hydlide Special on March 18, 1986 in Japan; three years later, in June 1989, that version saw a North American release by FCI, its title having been returned to simply Hydlide.

The first game is notable for being one of the early console role-playing games. The graphics appear to have been influenced by the computer RPG, Ultima III, though Hydlide had very different gameplay and ultimately failed to capture the same attention.

Games[edit]

Although developed and released in Japan, all the original titles of the Hydlide games are in "romaji" (Roman alphabet) on both the title screen and the box. Sometimes, a Japanese katakana transilteration was added, but just as a reading help for the Japanese players.
