Qisha is the protector of the planelago system, a planetary system consisting of five planelagos of nine miniplanets each. Each planelago was guarded by one of Qisha's children, but one day suddenly a mysterious force appeared and cursed them into statues. Qisha must go through all planelagos to retrieve the crystals to save the children and send back the mysterious force back where it belongs.

Guide Qisha through 3D miniplanets in this new and unique platformer for Mega Drive. Jump over obstacles and collect keys with the special twist of paths wrapping around to the other end of the miniplanet.

Really liked it! I remember getting to the rolling balls world, still didn't finish. But overall it was really fun! I liked saving those different small pet-like beings depending on the world theme.

What is the Planelagos.trf file? Do I need it to load the, I mean, the save file to load the Miniplanets from the game?

Nah, that's just a bonus font file. You can see it used in the section headings here https://plutiedev.com/

The game itself is just Miniplanets.bin

Thanks!

Great! The main guy is charming and cute! It takes a while to get from some waters, but this is decent!

Don't be dumb >_<

I think I know what's causing the flashes, just looking for some people to help me verify if the changes I made work. You could try working around it with a cartridge that responds faster, but I think it's hitting a hardware flaw present in some console revisions. I may need to release a REV03 for that.
