Black Onyx, The is a turn-based role-playing game developed by Sega for the Master System console. It was released in Japan in 1986 and was later released in Europe and North America in 1988. The game follows the story of two adventurers, Karna and Domingo, who set out on an epic quest to save their kingdom from the evil forces of the Dark Lord.

The game is set in a medieval fantasy world with many locations to explore such as forests, mountains, deserts, cities and dungeons. Players must use their wits and courage to traverse these places while battling monsters along the way. During their journey they will come across many NPCs that can provide information or aid them on their quest.

Players control Karna and Domingo separately throughout the game, each with their own unique abilities. Karna is a swordsman who specializes in physical attacks while Domingo is a sorcerer who has access to magic spells which can be used both offensively and defensively. They also have access to items which can be purchased or found during their travels. Players must use these items to their advantage against enemies they encounter while exploring different areas of the world map.

The combat system used in Black Onyx is turn-based and requires careful planning as players must decide which character should attack first, how much damage they should do, when to use special abilities etc. There are also various status effects that can be inflicted on characters such as poison or paralysis which can hinder progress if not dealt with quickly enough.

As players progress through Black Onyx they will come across bosses which are more difficult than regular enemies and require special strategies to defeat them successfully. After defeating a boss players are rewarded with experience points which can be used to upgrade characters’ stats such as attack power or health points; this allows for further customization of characters’ play styles depending on how the player wishes them to perform during battles.

Black Onyx has received critical acclaim since its release due to its engaging story line, detailed graphics and challenging gameplay mechanics making it one of Sega’s most beloved games for the Master System console. It continues to be played by retro gamers today thanks to its timeless appeal making it an enjoyable experience no matter when it is played!
