Gameplay[edit | edit source]

Gameplay takes place in randomly created labyrinths filled with lurking monsters and items waiting to be found. The more famous monsters of Final Fantasy, such as Ifrit, Behemoth, Tonberry and others, make appearances as bosses that Chocobo must fight and defeat in order to save the memories of the residents. In the Japanese version, there is a boss named Belial-V, named after the Japanese gaming magazine V-Jump. the game also utilizes the job system used by many other Final Fantasy games, allowing the player to chose between multiple unlockable jobs that change the players stats and abilities.

Plot[edit | edit source]

The story begins with Chocobo and Cid entering the Tower in the Sands searching for a valuable treasure known as Timeless Power. Upon reaching the top, they discover that Irma and Volg have just taken the treasure, only for the gem to mysteriously teleport them to the town of Lostime, the capital of the long lost country of Memoria. Upon arrival, they are greeted by the town's mayor, Gale Rosage, who is likewise puzzled at their situation. Cid wondered where Irma and Volg had vanished before realizing that Irma had made off with his treasure. As if sensing his anger, the bell from the clocktower rings, creating a strange vortex over his head. When the vortex vanished, Cid begins to question everything, even his name. Mayor Gale explains to Chocobo that whenever the bell rings, anyone who hears it will lose their memories. He claims that forgetting is a virtue and one could do without all the negative thoughts and emotions holding them down.
