Esper Dream is action RPG developed for the Family Computer Disk System and published by Konami on February 20, 1987. During this time, RPGs had a particular look and feel, primarily utilizing sword and magic motifs. Esper Dream takes place instead in a fairy tale world featuring a young boy who is gifted with ESP talents and wields a gun.

Roaming and static enemy positions are made visible in the world as a set of paw prints. Fights take place in an enclosed area where the player must shoot the enemies until they are eliminated. Traditional RPG elements include the collection of experience points and money by defeating monsters, increasing hit points and esper points (magic) through level raises, and purchasing better equipment from towns located deeper in the game.

Konami released the game as an i-application for cellular phone use as part of the "Konami masterpiece series" on February 1, 2007. In the same year, it was made available for download in Japan as part of the Wii Virtual Console on October 2. In February 2003, a ROM hacker and translator known as Mute translated the game's Japanese text into English, making it playable by English speakers, which you can find here.
