The game takes place in a fantasy version of feudal Japan, and stars a r?nin named Shiren and his companion, a talking weasel named Koppa, on a quest for the Land of the Golden Condor. Eventually he finds the abandoned land, frees the condor from an ancient insect-like creature, and rides away on the condor. As it flies across the towns he had traveled through on his way there, the townspeople look up at the condor and make a wish. Eventually the condor lands, and lets Shiren and Koppa jump off; the condor flies away again, and Shiren and Koppa walk away into the night.
As in other roguelikes, the player moves in a turn-based manner through a number of dungeons. While most roguelikes generate dungeons completely randomly, Shiren the Wanderer randomly chooses from a set of static dungeons. Although the player can save the game in various locations, dying resets Shiren's level to 1, sends him back to the first town, and all items not saved in warehouses are lost. The game's dungeons include a variety of settings, like caves and forests, and are randomly filled with monsters, traps, and items.
