A classic RPG for the SNES. In it, you play Ness (default name), a
boy with psychokinetic abilities who is destined to save the world
from evil aliens.
There are a few transformations in this game.
One of the party members, Poo (default name), has the ability to
transform into certain enemies during battle, letting him mimic its
actions. Unfortunately, there is no image of a change, and using
this ability makes you lose control of Poo until the fight ends or
it is cancelled somehow.
At the end of the game, the main characters somehow get their minds
transferred into robots so they can use the time machine and fight
the final boss. The time machine (Phase Distorter) destroys living
things when travelling through time.
Another transformation occurs in the game to a charactr named Brick
Road. When you first encounter him, he introduces himself as a
dungeon developer, and that, with the help of Dr. Andonuts, he will
become the dungeon man. You don't see him again until much later.
About 1/2 to 2/3s into the game, you find a tall tower shaped like
some sort of person. At the top, you discover that this is indeed
Brick Road, transformed into Dungeon Man. You don't see any
transformations taking place, but this is very creative.
Diamondize - Status effect, character can't act and sprite replaced
with a crystalline statue
K.O. - When defeated, a character's sprite is replaced by a
floating ghost with a halo.
One of the bosses, Carbon Dog, a flaming... dog, when defeated,
transforms into the even stronger Diamond Dog.
