Journey through the planet Aries to the beautiful City of Radactian -- and save it from the evil Janken the Great.
One day, as he was leaving the mountain for his spiritual homeland, he encountered a dying man who told him that the peaceful city of Radactian was in grave danger. Before taking his last breath, the man gave ALEX a piece of a map and a medallion made of Sun Stone.
