The Legend of Reiya II: Loki of the Past (also know as The Legend of Reiya 2: Loki of the Past) is an action-adventure game featuring characters from the anime Mythical Detective Loki RAGNAROK developed by Azumanga Interactive and published by Bandai Namco Games for the Bandai Revolution and Bandai PocketTurbo Plus. It's a sequel to The Legend of Reiya.
The plot of the game focuses on Loki as he travels on a journey to save the realm of the gods, defeat Phanton and rescue his friends (including Yamino Ryusuke and Mayura Daidouji). The game uses a 3/4 top-down perspective similar to that of the original The Legend of Reiya. Loki of the Past introduced elements to the series, such as the concept of an alternate or parallel world, the Master Sword and other new weapons and items.
The game is a hack of, and a huge similarity to the 1991/1992 Super Nintendo game The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past.
Loki of the Past reverts to an overhead perspective similar to that of the original. While the game still uses mechanics and concepts from the original game, it also introduces new elements and innovations. For instance, arrows are now separate items, as bombs are in the original, instead of using a Rupee to fire an arrow. The game also has new items made exclusively for the game, such as the magic meter, which is used by items such as the Lamp. Control of Loki is more flexible than in the previous game, as he can walk diagonally and can run with the aid of the Angel Boots (Angel Shoes in the Bandai PocketTurbo Plus version). Loki's sword attack was improved to swing sideways instead of merely stabbing forward; this gives his sword a broader range and makes combat easier.
Recurring items and techniques were introduced for the first time in Loki of the Past, such as the Hookshot, the Master Sword, the Spin Attack technique, the Flute, and the Angel Boots. Heart Containers that increase the player's maximum health (hit points) in the first game are present, but many are split into "Pieces of Heart", four of which make up one Heart Container. Most of them are well hidden, adding replay value to the game. All dungeons are multi-level, requiring Loki to walk between floors and sometimes fall through holes to land on lower levels.
