This game is classic beat-em up game. I should rather say slash-em up because the setting is medieval fantasy.
You could choose between a dwarf, a warrior and an amazon, who pretty much played the same, but with differen animations, graphics and spell effects. The levels were neat and ridden with all sorts of evil minions. From fat ogres to dragon riding villains. You could ride the dragons as well. There was not much of a story but a atmospheric card between the levels, serving as interlude and showing your progress through the world (think Indiana Jones movies).
This game is a classic and I would still highly recomended for old school gamers who wont to go back and have some solid 2D sidescrolling slash em up fun !
